I had originally spoken with Ms. Kenowitz regarding my separation from my husband of 14 years in the spring of 2012. The separation became an official divorce this past summer. From the start, I felt very comfortable discussing my concerns with Ms. Kenowitz. She is incredibly knowledgeable and truly dedicated to making certain her clients understand all aspects of divorce law as well as making sure that the agreement put forth is just. She took all of my concerns into account, always kept me in the loop and provided a sensitivity often absent in such matters.
I recommend her most highly - and am grateful to have found her.
I was introduced to Gail by a mutual friend of ours that is a reputable real estate attorney in Queens to prepare my prenup. Gail provided first class service starting from the initial consultation through execution. During my initial consultation, Gail thoroughly examined my personal situation and understood my hot buttons so she could draft a document that was custom tailored to my needs. She did not just fill out a standard legal template, but creatively incorporated clauses and mechanisms that protected my rights while ensuring they did not push the boundaries of being unenforceable. Additionally, she had a strong understanding of structures that are practical to administer in real-life situations through her extensive experience in divorce lawsuits & settlements and was able to provide invaluable advice on items to include in the document. The final work product thoroughly addressed all my concerns, while also being easy to follow and understand.
I was not only impressed by the quality of Gail’s work product, but also by her professionalism and accommodation. She was accessible to discuss any questions or comments I had – she responded quickly to e-mails with thorough explanations and made herself available for calls to have discussions on complex issues. Even at time of signing, she adjusted her schedule to work with the rest of the parties involved. It is refreshing that clients are not forced to work around her schedule – instead, she respects her clients’ time.
It was a great pleasure working with Gail. While I hope my life circumstances will not require her services in the future (i.e. divorce), she would be the only attorney I would want to work with in such circumstances. I understand from others that she truly shines in representing clients in divorce situations.
