I hired Patricia to handle my case involving a financial portfolio that was quite large and a custody dispute. I am writing this review to recommend her services as she was knowledgeable, professional, and knew all of the aspects of a complex matrimonial case. She knew the law, the Judge, the opponent, and that made everything go smoothly. Little suffering and less money than I thought I would spend on an attorney. Little did I know how complex it was-but I a am thrilled with the outcome, and if you want a winner, hire her.

When I came to see Patricia I was a broken mess. She took me into her office and made me feel that she would be the one person I could count on. My life was in shambles, my husband left me for another woman and I had no self-esteem. She gave me my life back, she made me understand that it wasn't me, and that she would defend me against my husband's lie and threats.
Today I have custody of my children, I have my home and everything that I was entitled to even though my husband tried to hid all the money he was earning in his own business. Her staff was without question the most caring and competent people I have every come across, they were wonderful.
I would recommend that anyone who wants someone who will fight for them, make them feel good about themselves, and who will listen to you without question, then Patricia is the lawyer for you. Run don't walk to her office right now if you need representation against that person in your life who is trying to take your life away from you.

I hired Patricia Issberner in September , 2015 to handle my divorce, after becoming inpatient with my previous attorney with over a year on the case, several hearings and paying thousands of dollars. During the initial consultation she told me I was depressed and spoke of many things that were not related to divorce in any way. I returned a month later for our first scheduled meeting. Upon arrival I was told that she had failed to schedule our appointment and she was unavailable. This was a sign of things to come. I had difficulty getting information and responses to many questions that I left messages and texts about. I had told her at the onset that expediting this matter was my primary need. She assured me I was in good hands. Long story short, she represented me for 8 months, appeared in court twice, and after she billed my entire retainer fee, hastily resigned as my attorney without any notice or discussion, right after the pretrial consultation with the judge. The trial date was adjourned for 3 months. She then notified the court that she could not represent me and put the entire blame on my behavior.

I was recommended by a trusted friend, but was apprehensive to change attorneys in the middle of my case. I thought it could not hurt to schedule a consultation. The first time I called Patricia's office, her associate informed me that she would not be available for approximately two weeks. As time was of the essence, I decided to call another attorney and schedule a consultation. As luck would have it, there was a snowstorm on the day that I was scheduled to meet that attorney. I tried unsuccessfully to reach his office to reschedule and they did not call me to reschedule. I felt this was unprofessional and decided to call Patricia's office once again. This was definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made. Patricia is an amazing attorney, as well as a very caring and genuine individual. She has a great work ethic and is really dedicated to getting what her client wants! As someone who worked with attorneys for 20 years, I am well aware of the rather unsavory reputation they have as a profession, but Patricia is definitely not your typical attorney. She is a great listener and really understands how her work will affect her client's life and continually kept me apprised of any new developments in my case. I am completely satisfied with her extremely professional demeanor and the way she was able to stand by my side with a caring spirit to guide me through a very difficult time.

Patricia is your woman when it comes to Custody battles. I was dealing with a tough situation and Patricia had a plan. I had to work for what I got, but in giving her all the information and her having it in one place really helped me with custody. I had to get all my references together, and get additional references. This information helped and we got it in advance to needing it so I was not reactive. I was well prepared. I thank Patricia, as she has been an asset in getting a better custody arrangement for my son. She helped me every step of the way moneywise. I really appreciate all her advice. Thank you Patricia, you are awesome!

Pat is a very easy "lawyer" to talk to. She was caring and understanding, but by no means does that mean she is a push over. She has a knack for reading people quickly. She knows how to play the fiddle with both parties. Knows what to say and how to say it. My ex decided not to contest my divorce after meeting with Pat. I don't know, nor do I care, what was said during the meeting, but what ever was said was the right thing to get to the job done in a reasonable amount of time at a very reasonable rate. This saved my son and I a whole lot of stress, aggravation, and money. Pat did what I asked her to do, get me divorced as quickly and easily as possible. I would recommend her to any one who asks me, "Do you know a good divorce lawyer."
One side note here. Since she was a former legal law guardian for children, she looks at which situation is best for the children, if any.
Divorce is a very difficult thing for kids, do what is best for them. Hire Pat!!

Pat has been very helpful in instructing me in my divorce and custody case. From the moment I stepped into her office she has become a part of my team and has made sure that I understand everything that is going on to the point where she has worked with me financially. I trust her judgement because she is upfront and honest and tells it like it is. She took the time to help me prepare for what is a most difficult time. She is willing to go the extra mile even though she expects little in return. She is prompt to return phone calls and texts. I'm glad I hired Pat. I've recommended Pat to relatives and friends.

A coworker of mine recommended Ms. Issberner after speaking with me about issues I was having with the first lawyer I had been working with. The initial lawyer (NOT Ms. Issberner) was a disaster - unresponsive for weeks at a time and constantly billing me for work that didn't need to be done! Though I'd rather not post any personally identifying details of my complicated custody dispute, I can say that Ms. Issberner was able to provide a more professional perspective while acknowledging the existence of the intense emotions that accompany family relations, especially involving our children. I came to her with my own short-sighted plans and ideas for how I wanted to handle the situation. She helped me to make a responsible decision which would function best in the long-term. She presented a variety of possibilities which she understood quite thoroughly and had previous experience with. I was shocked that the previous lawyer hadn't discussed all of the options and long-term ramifications with me! Most importantly, she shared a genuine concern for the well-being of my family while handling sensitive domestic violence concerns. Although she was very busy, I felt that she made my case a priority. I felt confident walking into court knowing Ms. Issberner would be representing me. With Ms. Issberner, what you see is what you get - she was straightforward about costs and outcomes, so that I always knew what to expect. My case was handled to the satisfaction of both myself and my ex-husband, and I would recommend her services to family and friends.

My divorce was absolutely the most horrendous on earth. I grew to trust Pat over time, and frankly as a man, and a great Father, I still thought the old fashioned way, which was that Mother's would get custody. But my wife was engulfed in her affair so much so that she was never home, and I became the defacto Mother and Father. Since Pat was a former Law Guardian, she could see past the 1950's thought pattern, and truly believed that I was the most suitable parent to raise our three children. Though it was a living hell, with the forensic evaluation a the Law Guardian, when the report came out for the evaluator I could not believe Pat when she said that the Evaluator recommended me as the sole custodian, further stating that I was the most suitable parent. I could not read the report itself, and I heard a synopsis, but everything that Pat said would happened did indeed happened. My wife left the house to be with her boyfriend and I had my children and my house. Though I am an executive and she earns less, she pays me child support! Without Pat's encouragement and belief in me, I could not have lived through this nightmare, which is now over. It has been for a year now. Things are calming down and I am the happiest man on earth. Our kids are young and they roll with the punches, and I hope someday Pat can meet them. She is the person who won custody for me. Without her I would not have had the courage, or even the idea that it would be possible. She worked until midnight to prepare for the trial and so did her staff. Devotion and doggedness is in her blood. I can't say enough about Pat and her personal will to help those in need.
