I had started with a different lawyer/ firm that was just not capable of handling the difficulties of my child custody/childrens’ safety, divorce, and other issues my children and I were faced with. In 2009, THANKFULLY I was HIGHLY referred to Jean Moskow as being a trustworthy attorney who gets the job done and is skilled at handling all types of cases especially the more challenging ones which my own turned out to be. I do not have a negative thing to say about Jean and her exceptional team. They all handle themselves in the most professional manner. Calls and emails are answered promptly, they are always prepared for court, paperwork is done without error and filed in a timely manner.
I am a professional educated woman with two children who I adore. I TRUST Jean and her team 100% with my families’ best interest. They are a power force working hard on behalf of their clients and far exceed any expectations I could have of a great lawyer and firm. I have been in many of the different courts in Media over the years and have been before many different Judges/masters and seen many of the different lawyers that work in the Delaware County Court House in action. I can say without a doubt that Jean’s skills far exceed those attorneys. When I walk into court with Jean Moskow, her associates and team by my side I am confident because I know they are always prepared and they are there with me to get the job done.
I still work with Knight & Moskow and I cannot stress enough just what a knowledgeable, dedicated and skilled attorney Jean is and how professional not only her but everyone in her office is. She has worked with me dealing with a very complex case dealing with child custody/ divorce/ PFA's/ delinquent child support and many other issues. Jean has always been compassionate and kind in helping get thru difficult situations and along with that extremely knowledgeable and knowing what needs to get done. I have referred Jean to friends and colleagues in need of a GREAT attorney and will continue to do so to anyone who is in need of an attorney. She truly is one of kind and really an amazing attorney who offers the full package to her clients!!!!!
I do not know what I would have done without Jean when I went through my divorce. I sincerely mean that. It was the bright light during a terrible dark time of my life. She continues to counsel me and I appreciate all the support and guidance she has given me.
I had the great privilege of retaining Ms. Moskow for a very difficult divorce. Ms. Moskow spent an enormous amount of time on my case as well as on assuring my personal well being. My phone calls and emails were answered in a timely matter (always within 24 hours) and my questions were answered quickly, saving me time and money. Ms. Moskow never treated any of my questions or concerns as unimportant and always made it clear what my options were. My divorce settlement was fair and completed in a timely matter.
I would definitely hire Ms. Moskow again.
Jean did an excellent job for me with the divorce to help with negotiations. She offered alternatives for each situation that arose, arranged meetings with opposing counsel so that a settlement could be completed. Supported me at hearings and was extremely reasonable with pricing. At times there were communications for which I was not charged. She worked hard to keep attorney fees down while keeping me informed on the next few steps of each process. I was extremely pleased and have referred her to two other people.
Jean gave me great legal and practical advice. I felt that she took a true interest in my case and was very reasonable in her billable hours. She kept me informed and returned my calls promptly.
Let me preface by stating that my spouse and I have over 45 years experience in business and have successfully dealt with all types of people and situations. I genuinely appreciate the ability to offer my comments to this forum. My remarks are not meant to be critical. They are offered with candor, and an understanding and appreciation of the fact that thoughout life, all of us can improve the way we do business and handle our clients. With that said: Ms. Moskow, I believe, achieved her law degree in her mid-forties. From my vantage point, I just feel strongly that this may have resulted in a lack of crucial knowledge which she might have gained through many years of on the job training and hands on experience. According to her own profile, Probate/Estate Administration are not Jean's specialty. Ms. Moskow's firm was retained merely as a courtesy to the deceased, who had previously retained an attorney there, who had departed to work with another law firm. Continuing: On the first day my husband and I met with Ms.Moskow - at a time of great emotional distress for us - and she seemed distant, removed, lacking in compassion, and harried. She haughtily tossed her office door shut when that initial meeting was completed. Having previously worked with attorneys who shook hands reassuringly and walked me to the door when I departed, this petulant move stood out in was a stark contrast. As I am well dressed, clean, articulate, college educated, and approachable, I was left wondering what I might have done to elicit a response of that nature - but realized it was nothing generated by myself. From that first contact onward, at no time did we feel fully confident in Jean's abilities. She just didn't seem to have it all together - in my humble opinion - she was awkward - not knowledgeable enough in Estate Administration and Probate to effectively handle the complexities of our case. I feel one should be able to reasonably expect that a professional would recognize their insufficiencies, and refer cases requiring more comprehensive handling to a properly qualified, experienced contemporary. Jean did not. Further: I feel Jean did not respond to communications in a timely manner. Also: I was left to flounder adrift, unprotected and without guidance as an Estate Executrix, for an unacceptably lengthy period of time. I was proactive enough to laboriously comb the Internet for "operating instructions" and peruse online codes from Orphan's Court and Pennsylvania Law. In addition, I felt Jean was brusque and somewhat demanding when she requested information, which I readily provided without delay - but elusive and unresponsive when I myself requested information. Her office staff was reasonably businesslike, but I felt them to be vague and uncooperative - my requests were few - and they were not answered. Bottom line: regrettably, I cannot recommend Jean Moskow to anyone. Paid in Full, lesson learned, will never retain again! However: I do recommend AVVO. Thank God for this website, where for the past year, I have been fortunate to receive firm, no nonsense guidance from caring, knowledgeable attorneys that prevented me from making some serious mistakes. While most wisely stated that my best course of action was to engage a qualified attorney, and some offered to serve in that capacity, all generously gave the few moments of their time I needed to stay afloat. I offer a caveat to those who may have agreed to serve as the Executor of an Estate: be absolutely certain you understand to what you are committing. After several years of caring for my critically ill parent from a distance, and six arduous months caring for him in my own home 24/7, I was emotionally and physically exhausted when he passed. More than a year afterward - my daily life is still liberally peppered with the responsibilities of finalizing his affairs; and I am far from closing the Estate and moving on with my own life.
