    Highly recommended

    JoAnn worked diligently to protect my parental rights in a very messy and unbalanced custody/support situation. I never had trouble reaching her and even though I was often at my wit's end, JoAnn demonstrated a lot of grace under pressure; she is also an excellent listener, which is rare among the family law attorney's that I'd previously encountered in NY

    Ethical and responsive attorney

    I retained Joann in 2011 to represent my daughter and her two children who had been sued for divorce after 8 years of marriage. Joann professionally guided us through the complex family court system in NY State to a successful and satisfactory child custody and divorce settlement. She was and continues to be my family's advocate in such challenging and emotional issues.

    Simply excellent - Best $200 I ever spent.

    When I was looking to secure an attorney for my divorce I had interviewed with several for free. Jo Ann required $200 to meet with her...she promised me it would be the best $200 I spent in this matter and she was absolutely correct.

    Jo Ann is the hardest working, most knowledgeable, selfless and committed attorney I have ever met or will probably ever know. In the past 2+ years she has worked tirelessly on my extremely difficult and complicated divorce with contested custody. She never once stepped away from any legal challenge, and she never wavered from her commitment to my case.

    If you are a parent (and especially a father who loves his children) who doesn't want to get pushed out of their lives and railroaded by a court system that is typically sympathetic to mothers regardless of their personal character, parenting skills, emotional and/or mental health, than you need to hire Jo Ann.

    I literally faced every false allegation and legal challenge that can be thrown at a father in a divorce custody challenge case, and not just once but several times. Just being right or innocent isn't enough, you need an eminently qualified attorney. My divorce is literally one for the record books on many points. Nothing I say could over dramatize these last two years or the events that occurred.

    Jo Ann's professional conduct, knowledge,commitment, and legal execution is exemplary.

    Amazing!

    Right from the start Joann let me know what was going to happy. She was always a call or e-mail away when I ran into a brick wall. She was very comforting and supporting in a time of need. She stood up for my rights as a single mom when I didn't have the strength. I would recommend her to anyone looking for assistance in family court.

    Did a great job!

    Joann is an excellent attorney. She is experienced and knowledgeable. She was successful in my case. She negotiated a resolution without costly court appearances and litigation, yet was confident to go to trial if necessary. She made herself available whenever I needed her and returned my phone calls immediately. Her fees were reasonable and well earned. I have recommended her to other people and will continue to do so. I was very happy to have her on my side.

    JOANN GOT THE JOB DONE!

    Joann was excellent at handling my case of child custody/support. I was not married so I did not have all the extra baggage that comes along with a marriage. I had been down this route once before with a different attorney so I had a general idea of what to expect. She has a great professional manner both in and out of the court room. Her professonal manner helped me to avoid a trial and gave me the outcome that I wanted. She can be tough with the opposing party when warranted. Joann tells you like it is.....and is honest about the reality of your specific situation, unlike the lawyer I had hired years ago who just feed me a bunch of bs. She is very mindful of the family court system and its players... an excellent trait that a client would want a lawyer to have. She made herself available whenever I had a quesiton or needed more information about my case. She got the job done!
