    A Trusted Advocate and Advisor

    I chose to engage David Badanes for my contested divorce because I felt comfortable with his availability and attention to detail. As the owner of a small business, I appreciated that I was always able to reach David and that I was dealing with him as the principal of his firm directly, as opposed to some junior partner or one member of a large roster of lawyers.

    I believe my divorce was likely as or more challenging than the average he's encountered, but David provided me with quality guidance pre and post-trial and always zealously, but ethically, represented my interests. Legal matters aren't always resolved precisely in the manner we would wish, but I would not hesitate to recommend David Badanes to my friends and colleagues.

    Comfort Zone

    David really made me feel very comfortable with his demeanor and to-the-point questions during the times we had our appointments. The information he passed along to me was a big help in determining the course of action to be taken.

    I've already referred someone to him, and I will seek out his counsel in the future if the need arises.

    Fellow Attorney I'd recommend.

    As a fellow matrimonial attorney, I have had cases against several other attorneys. Mr. Badanes represents his clients vigorously , but, never crosses the line of unethical practices. He is intelligent and knows the law. He is always prepared.

    Complicated Divorce- and Ex

    I don't usually write reviews - but I felt I had to- Mr. Badanes really helped me.
    I had another attorney who wasn't getting results- I switched to David Badanes!!!
    He gave me his cell phone number so I could reach him anytime. He fought hard to negotiate and settle terms for my divorce. He was more than prepared and qualified ! I would highly recommend Mr. Badanes- he is kind when you need him to be but a tough negotiator - he got things accomplished that my prior attorney only talked about! I always met with Mr. Badanes- not an associate that didn't know my case- I think it also helps that Mr. Badanes knew judges and their clerks- other attorneys at courthouse respected him as well! My divorce wasn't easy- we ended up going to court. Mr. Badanes never nickel and dimed me with charges for photocopies and telephone calls like my last attorney! Thank you Mr. Badanes!!

    Was not prepared to represent me

    I was this lawyer's client for over a year. I put a lot of trust in him. Lawyer was not prepared for our emergency court hearing and did not take care of necessary steps to enter expert testimony. Hearing was whether or not the Court would let my daughter go to Kindergarten in the Fall, since daughter's father decided that he wanted to keep her in pre-K. A psychologist had tested my daughter and a School had accepted her. Both the psychologist and the School would have been excellent experts. Findings of the psychologist's evaluation and the interview/admission decision could not be shared with the court, since this lawyer did not call the experts. I was informed that all the work I did - getting the testing report and admission decision - would not be shared with the Judge the morning of the emergency hearing. I ended up losing the Court Ruling. I fired this attorney before trial when I learned that he was also not prepared to aggressively represent me at my contested custody trial. He had spent no time with any of the witnesses. He didn't tell me which witnesses from the list he decided against calling to the stand... None of the witnesses he selected felt prepared in the sense they didn't know what to expect or what was relevant information to share with the Court. There are things that my new legal team is trying to take care of now, but there is the possibility that things already set into motion cannot be reversed .

    Excellent value representing me in a complex issue

    I was unusually fortunate to have David Badanes tackle a rather technical, complex and stubborn post-divorce issue. He was down-to-earth, practical and diplomatic but nonetheless persistent. He never promised the impossible: he stayed focused on the achievable. An expert in another state observed she'd never seen a situation quite like mine but she came to admire Badanes's grasp of the case and its issues. I sincerely believe there are very few attorneys who could have managed in a case like this to bring about a successful and reasonable resolution.
