5.0 stars 10 totalReview Lois Finkelstein
The Perfect Blend of Professionalism, Effectiveness and Compassion
Divorce is never an easy thing to go through. No one goes in to a marriage preparing for a divorce. So, needless to say, it's a confusing and sad time. Lois Finkelstein, my third attorney, was nothing short of the perfect blend of professionalism, effectiveness, and compassion. I only wish I had discovered her first! She was an ear when I needed one, including on weekends!
She was very professional in all her communications and processes, keeping me calm in a very high anxiety time in my lifetime. Lois was extremely effective insuring the outcome of my case was one that helped me move on to the next chapter of my life with the least amount of unrest. She helped me regain control of my life and establish generous access to my child.
From our first consultation to the eventual close of my case, (these cases seem to never end!) Lois was there with constant updates, advice, and solutions. She is without a doubt, the most responsive attorney I have ever had on my side. A top notch attorney who settled an unsettling time in my life. I highly recommend having Lois Finkelstein in your corner should you find yourself in a position where divorce is the only answer. She is bar non, the very best negotiator I have ever met!
I consulted with Attorney Finkelstein this past week regarding a complex interstate custody matter. I was taken back by how she balanced covering all legal considerations while providing compassion and emphathizing with this situation. Following the consult it was clear that I am on the right path in choosing legal counsel.

There are simply not enough words to describe how incredible Lois is. From the very beginning of our initial consultation I could feel how engaged and invested Lois was in me, my family and helping us make the best decision for our needs. Though we “only” did a post-nup, Lois didn’t treat it like a transaction. She spent time understanding truly what we wanted and why. She provided great guidance and expertise on things we overlooked and even things we didn’t need. Lois made herself available every time we had a question or wanted to discuss anything – big or small. Of course our final document was flawless and completely captured everything we wanted. She is a lawyer who cares deeply about the whole person and is absolutely the person you want advising, counseling and fighting for you.

I wish I could give Ms. Finkelstein 6 stars instead of 5, she is that good, dedicated and trustworthy. She treated me with respect and dignity and, most importantly, worked tirelessly to protect the personal and financial security of my children's future. Ms. Finkelstein put her heart and soul into my case. That, along with her considerable legal talents and abilities, is a formidable combination to have in your corner. Run, do not walk, to this attorney.

Lois is extraordinary!!!!! She truly cares for her clients and will go above and beyond what a lawyer is expected to do. I mean that wholeheartedly. She's knowledgeable and will fight for you the entire way. Part of the reason why I made it through much of my ordeal was because of the support she provided me. Without her I wouldn't be standing ( or sitting) long enough to write this.

Superb, outstanding, extraordinary, fantastic, top-notch.....There aren't enough positive words to describe Lois Finkelstein! She is extremely knowledgable of the law, takes the time to explain the details, and truly cares. I consulted with her on a child support case, and she gave me invaluable advice. I was very well pleased with her advice, demeanor, professionalism, and how easy she was to talk to. Her advice included both legal advice and practical advice based on the law and her years of experience. I would definitely hire her and would recommend her to anyone seeking a domestic relations lawyer!!

I have worked with Lois for two years on a very complex custody case. Based on my experiences, what distinguishes Lois is a clear demonstration of how much she truly cares about what she does -- not just the "case" but the lives she touches. She is relentless and impeccable in her execution and is a superb an compelling writer. I have recommended Lois to others and would use her again in a heartbeat.

Extraordinary, passionate, professional, methodical and patient. Lois has earned in spades her top ratings in the Washington DC area. I would recommend her to any friend or colleague. A must-do improvement, which I have emphasized to her repeatedly, is 1) graduate from first-generation computers and Word Perfect software, and 2) her administrative assistant/receptionist Marie's conduct/attitude and telephone etiquette is unprofessional, far below acceptable standards.

Lois got me through an extremely difficult legal and highly emotional divorce. Her legal skills were unsurpassed. However the most important thing was that it was always apparent that she cared about me and my children as human beings not just paying clients. I learned about Lois from another family member who had also engaged her and was extremely pleased with the outcome. I consulted other attorneys and chose Lois for her calm and supportive demeanor. PS She can be a bulldog when necessary.

I found her to knowledge of the law to be a guiding light during the divorce process. Her presentation of the information and her consistent professionalism is worthy of someone to meet independent of her profession or the reason I hired her. She lays out the facts of the case and the path that you will travel in a very comforting and informative way. No one like to spend money on matters such as divorce, but I must admit that this lawyer is worth every penny. I recommend me her services to anyone involved in divorce or in need of pre-marital legal gudiance. This lawyer is a keeper.
