5.0 stars 33 totalReview Patricia Issberner
My husband had a cash business and I was a stay at home mother for 18 year, at his insistence, stupid me. Then came lovely Marilyn, 20 years younger, that I found out about three years after they started their kanoodling together. He blamed me for paying too much time pm the children and not him. Then he move out and left the four of us with no money. He sent $1,000.00 here and there, but not enough to pay for food and the mortgage and the oil etc. Well, we filed an emergency motion in front of a lovely Judge who gave me maintenance child support and made him pay the bills including my legal fee.
Patricia was always there on time, sitting with me in the Courtroom rather than gossiping with the other attorneys, I did appreciate that. She explained why we were there and exactly what happened when they came out. I was very well informed and my dopey husband filed phoney tax returns and was in for big trouble.
But I must say that Pat was always looking to settle the case rather than to waste legal fees. She was always so prepared compared to dummies attorney.
Patricia was my 2nd attorney--my first attorney did absolutely nothing. You must hire an attorney who specializes in matrimonial law alone. This was a complex case, yet she won it --though it was a hard case to win. I was the most suitable parent and my children get to stay in their house until they graduate. Patricia is my HERO
I hired Patricia for a complicated case where my husband had left 5 years ago, with me and our 4 children. He moved in with his girlfriend and refused to pay child support. Pat made a motion and he was ordered to pay me child support and maintenance. I love her and I strongly recommend her. She's great.
I never thought I would get custody of my children because I am a man, but Patricia gave me the guidance and support along with the confidence to win what was in the best interests of my children. I highly recommend her as an attorney.
Although my case was not lengthy, the experience I had with your office was positive and reassuring. You are a kind and compassionate person. I will be sure to call on you in the event your services can be utilized again.
I met Patricia Issberner when she was a Law Guardian on my case. I was 17, a few years ago, and my younger sister only 14. Both of my parents contested custody. She interviewed me, my sister, my parents, and even my Uncle. It was clear to me that custody should go to my Father, but my Mother would have been humiliated by losing custody of her children. It was truly a horrible case where the children were stuck in the middle. I googled her name because I was thinking about her the other day, and how she basically saved our lives by recommending my father get custody, and noticed this website where you can leave reviews. I can say that I truly think that she is the best attorney anywhere. She took so much time to investigate and was so good with my little sister. I thought the interview with my little sister would be a disaster but Patricia made it so easy. She warmed up to her so quickly. She also eased the tension between my parents and made my mother feel better about the outcome of the case. It’s been a few years now, but without Patricia Issberner advocating for me and my little sister, our lives could have been ruined. She had to argue with both of my parent’s attorney’s and at one point the Judge wanted to talk to us in her chambers and Patricia made sure we saw what the chambers looked like before we ever went in. She told us that it was going to be just the judge the law guardian and one child at a time. She made us feel comfortable in a very formal setting. The attorney’s were constantly arguing and she tried to keep the peace, but she would not have it-my Father was getting custody, which was THE BEST IDEA. There was a trial and Patricia was amazing. I can’t say enough good things about her. I’m so happy to see so many good reviews. I wish someday I could see her again.

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.
