My divorce should have been so simple. No alimony or young children. Just a simple division of assets after a 29 year marriage. Instead, he milked the retainer fees and never got me the one thing I asked for from the beginning which was to divide the only liquid funds we had. Jay doesn't listen. He also did something which I'm now hearing is inappropriate to do. He forwarded me the actual emails/responses from my husband's attorney that were meant for him, directly to me which were very aggressive and plain right nasty. I shouldn't have seen these. Instead he should have emailed or called me to explain what the emails meant and let me know if it was a good thing or a bad thing - Not let me see what the other lawyer was writing. On the day of our PC, my husband's lawyer gave us all the documentation we needed to pursue division of the liquid assets, and 2 months later, Jay is asking me to send him the statements!! I reminded him that he had them also. He had me going through the statements and finding all the discrepancies and sending them to him!! I didn't realize that this was his job to do, not mine. I was no naive and he took advantage of me. Upon my firing him, he charges me $1400 for reviewing the files which I'm sure he never did but what can I do now? I must pay him and be done with him so he can give my new lawyer the files. So unethical....

Mr. Raxenberg is a very professional,reliable, and dedicated attorney. He is highly competent in his area of expertise in addition to being a very personable attorney. He is always willing to work around his client's schedule which is a rare quality these days. I had initially received counselling from another attorney however I did not realize the adequate services I am entitled to until Mr. Raxenberg started representing me. In my personal case the defendant is very unreasonable and highly uncooperative. I truly believe that only an attorney like Mr.Raxenberg could have handled such a difficult situation and I am very grateful to him for his support and valuable counselling.

Jay represented me in my divorce and he did an excellent job. Jay knows how the court system works and as long as you follow his advise you will be happy with the outcome of your divorce. Jay gave me his complete attention whenever I called him, met with him and especially in the court room. Jay not only knew my case inside and out but he also took the time to get to know me personally as well as other members of my family.

From the very first encounter with Jay Raxenberg he made me feel that I as a father also had equal rights in the process of the Divorce, He returned all my calls in a timely matter and was presented at all the court appearences and was professional at all times.
