I had an issue with my previously drafted QDRO by another lawyer. My former spouse had changed lawyers mid-stream and their paperwork had fallen through the cracks. Jennifer was able to pick up the pieces, work with my former spouse's new lawyer and get the issue resolved in a timely and thorough manner.
Several years later, due to changes in my company's retirement plan, we had to amend my QDRO in a very quick fashion. Jennifer and her staff were able to work rather quickly and efficiently between my company's Legal staff involved in changes, my former spouse's attorney, and the court system to have the documents ready and submitted back to the retirement plan in record time. Since retirement plans are often subject to the effects of the stock market and interest rates, moving this forward in a timely manner was critical. She was able to execute and resolve in record time and well within the targeted deadline.
I am so sorry I had not heard of Jennifer prior to my QDRO. Had I known of her, I would have preferred she had handled my divorce. I have been very impressed with her communication style between the courts and other lawyers, and her communication with me. It has been very professional and detailed enough so it is clear what the needs, goals and objectives are. Since I had a highly recommended lawyer previously (as well as my former spouse had his own highly recommended attorney), I have had a great opportunity to compare the communication styles and their effectiveness. Jennifer is clearly a notch above the any of the original attorney's we had used.
Jennifer was hired as a replacement for a horrible lawyer named Thomas Solomon. I was in jeopardy of losing my custody case when my old lawyer dropped the ball many times over. I brought in Jennifer and she took control of the case, did her homework and got the case dismissed. I thought there wasnt a chance for dismissal but she proved her facts and is a hard hitter that I have to recommend to anyone who has important issues that need to be resolved. This is yet another case of paying for what you get, she isnt the cheapest but when life issues arise- she is the one to call!
Jennifer was understanding, profession and tough when she needed to be. She was patient with me when I was frustrated and always kept me up to date with where we were in the process. Jennifer was always reachable by phone and email which was so helpful so I didn't have to wait until we could schedule an in person appointment.
Jennifer exhibited outstanding understanding of Matrimonial law and process. She assisted us in creating and executing key documents and expedited moving them through the court system. She was collaborative and very communicative throughout the process. I would recommend here without hesitation.
Divorce is always a difficult life experience, and Jennifer helped me through it with professionalism and ease. She communicated with me promptly through email when she was on vacation, and I was not even her client yet. Her office is very clean and nice, and conveniently located off a major highway. It was nice not to have to go down town to fight and pay for parking. Her legal assistant was very professional and responsive also. Thank you Jennifer.
She was recommended by people who had gone through a divorce, but Jenn Fazio proved to be unprepared and made several key mistakes. Thankfully none of the mistakes were presented to the court. I switched attorneys mid case. Will cost thousands more, but am hoping it works out in the end. I was very, very disappointed in the work she did.
Jennifer Fazio is, without a doubt, compassionate, tough, professional, and THE best person to represent you in your divorce. She protects your money by not quibbling over little things that "the other lawyers" might get into.
I won't be getting married again, I'm pretty sure, but if I was dumb enough to go a third round for marriage, and it didn't work out, I'd be right back in her office and ready to go to work.
Jennifer stays on point, and pointed out to me a couple of times when I might not have been being reasonable enough to resolve contentious issues.
I was absolutely fine with the fact that the majority of our correspondence was via email. It was cheaper, more expedient, and prevented the need for an expensive office visit.
I can't say enough good things about this lawyer. I TRULY felt that she acted, at all times, in my best interest.
Jennifer did an exceptional job representing me in family court. She stood out among the three lawyers that I consulted with initially. She is very knowledgeable and motivated. She responds quickly to email and phone calls (even responding to some emails later in the evening and on weekends). Any follow up that was needed after court appearances was done within one day, and I was immediately informed of any pertinent information. Jennifer was up front about what we could and could not accomplish in court. I am pleased with the outcome of my case and have Jennifer to thank. I highly recommend her to anyone searching for a lawyer.
Jennifer represented me in a child support issue and then again for a child custody issue. Jennifer was always responsive and professional. She provided me with legal guidance as well as helping me to focus on the important issues, my kids, and not being sucked into a belittling game with the other party. I learned a lot from Jennifer and I am grateful for her expertise.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jennifer to anyone facing a divorce. I was blindsided by my ex wife’s request for a divorce as I was simultaneously impacted with a layoff from my job. Throughout the extended ordeal, Jennifer kept me grounded with realistic expectations, never over reaching for a position that the court would never approve. In the end, we got the equitable split we were looking for without having to go to court. Jennifer is completely professional: well organized, tactically and strategically sharp, with good listening and good people skills. She grounds her clients in realistic expectations in New York’s no-fault environment. I can recommend Jennifer without hesitation.
