    Took the sting out of a painful situation

    I had a great recent experience with Debby Luxenberg and her team. Trying to make heads or tails of a separation/divorce has not been easy but I can honestly say that Debby single-handedly got me on track. She was firm with me when I was wavering and took extra time to explain things to me when she (rather impressively) sensed I was unsure. She is very knowledgable about the different laws in the DMV area. I ultimately felt very confident about how to handle everything and this was all due to her guidance and knowledge sharing, not to mention her obvious compassion for her clients. Thank you Debby for helping us resolve some tough stuff- you really went the extra mile.

    Outstanding in All Respects

    Debby is a terrific lawyer - knowledgeable, caring, down to earth, responsible,and effective. She is a leader in the domestic relations bar, does a really significant amount of pro bono legal and other civic work, and is a role model for other attorneys. Her character is impeccable and she is upstanding in all respects. I would recommend her wholeheartedly and without the slightest reservation. Anyone would be fortunate to be represented by Debby Luxenberg.

    Excellent Alternative Dispute Resolution Facilitator

    We have repeatedly called on Ms. Luxenberg to serve as our alternative dispute resolution facilitator. She has been knowledgeable, unbiased, and effective in resolving each case, thereby avoiding the necessity of contested litigation. We plan to call on Ms. Luxenberg again to serve as our facilitator in upcoming cases.

    Highly capable and considerate arbitrator

    Debby was the arbitrator in a domestic relations case I had. She was very knowlegable of the pertinent law and the trends in courts. She was thoughtful about communicating with the parties and ensuring that everyone's expectations of the process were clear. Debby was generous with her time, she listened carefully and took copious notes. She was consumately professional and yet humane: very understanding of the emotional needs of the parties that the arbitration was serving as well as the legal needs (i.e., the need of parties to get out their stories, to feel heard and understood). Debby's written decision was comprehensive, cogent, rational, well-explained and fair.

    Deborah Luxenberg follows through

    I left a message for Deborah Luxenberg when I was in a crisis situation. and needed timely advice. She contacted me immediately, gave me guidance on the issue and then made a suggestion about someone else who could help. I was grateful for her guidance.

    Excellent Attorney

    Debby came very highly recommended to handle a divorce, with potentially complicated child custody issues, involving an international adoption. She handled that, and other matters, perfectly. Don't know how many times you say you actually like talking to your divorce attorney, but I always look forward to seeing Debby.

    Debby Luxenberg Review

    I came to Debby with a very difficult domestic violence situation involving marriage to a citizen of a country that is not a signatory of the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction and an infant child. Debby was exceptionally responsive and committed to my case, helping me through protective order proceedings, as well as divorce & custody matters. Her experience and familiarity with the courts and practitioners, including judges and ADR attorneys, were invaluable. She was a straight shooter, both realistic and thoughtful in her consideration of strategy. Her knowledge of the domestic violence dynamic was also extremely helpful.

    Our experience with Deborah could not have been better

    My partner and I hired Deborah to do a second parent adoption after I gave birth to our daughter. Deborah got it done in record time - the order was signed on the day she turned 3 months - and persuaded the judge to waive the home sturdy. She really knows how to get things done.

    Disappointed

    Ms. Luxenberg was our Mediator, and I've never been more disappointed.

    Everyone knows that mediators are supposed to be patient, peace-building, and good facilitators. Ms. Luxenberg was IMpatient, ABRASIVE, and created a WORSE dynamic in the divorce as a result of this "mediation" experience.

    She has a very pushy personality, and was extremely rude. All of us walked away from this experience wishing we had never worked with her.

    Lawyer who doesn't know the law

    I hired Debbie to do a separation agreement for my partner and I. After spending several thousand dollars (and pawning part of it off to her husband who had to get up to speed, resulting in more billable time), she was not accurate in terms of the law!
