There is seriously NO ONE else I would want on my side of the table or courtroom than Mr. Pearlstein. Please do not mistake his demeanor as detached. I have no doubt he has been fully engaged throughout his service as my attorney. I respect his ethics and his conduct. He is not there to be my friend, and that is how it should be. He does his job, and does it well with and unemotional sense of what is appropriate and what his client can handle. He will NOT push a client to do what he knows they cannot do. But he will advise them well on strategies for future consideration. You may have to give a little today, in order to come back later and fight harder when you CAN.
THAT is what makes him outstanding.

Brian Pearlstein (BRP Family Law) earned my highest possible recommendation by clearly out-performing the stellar reputation that preceded him. He was nothing short of spectacular from every aspect imaginable. The whole matter was handled with the utmost class, professionalism and sensitivity. Brian devised a comprehensive winning strategy, was always very well prepared, and executed flawlessly. This all resulted in a tremendous outcome for my children and me, while minimizing billing throughout the process. I could not have been more pleased with Brian, his staff, and the result!

He did an excellent job with my divorce and then handled the case when I needed complete custody of my son

Felt he was a little distant in my case. Not fully engaged. I feel he encouraged me to settle when we should have proceeded.

Brian Pearlstein represented me through a lengthy, contentious divorce. My ex-wife was trying to avoid a settlement and divorce at all costs, and she dug in her heels, obstructed, and delayed at every step of the way. Before giving the case to Brian, I spent a year trying to work out an amicable settlement with her and got nowhere. Once I gave Brian the case, he kept up a steady flow of paperwork to my ex and her lawyer, moved the case along as fast as the courts would permit, and ultimately brought my ex to the settlement table and finalized the divorce.
Brian is a big-picture person. He knows when to yield lesser points and where to dig in and stand firm. He was direct and honest about what was or wasn’t worth contesting. He was able to juggle lots of variables and spot the right time to do a deal. He also did whatever he could to contain costs at every step of the way.
When I had to move cross-country halfway through the process, we continued to manage the process by email, phone and FedEx without a hitch. If I had a query for Brian, I could count on a response within a few hours. Brian was also able to put me in contact with other local professionals as needed, such as a broker to handle a long-distance distressed sale of real estate as part of the property split.
Brian Pearlstein is experienced and effective, and I couldn’t have asked for a better advocate through a challenging and painful process.

Brian and his firm does excellent work. He has been very responsive and have been able to thoroughly answer my questions. When I walked into his office for our first meeting, I was completely frustrated and distraught. It's not easy to take being accused of something that you know is a complete and fabricated lie for monetary gain. After talking with Brian I was completely relieved and at ease. He explained my situation from a legal standpoint and gave me enough information during our first meeting that enabled me to workout a strategy to protect myself.
I would use him again and I would highly recommend him.

Brian Pearlstein represented me through a painful and complicated divorce that included custody, complex finances, and assets including businesses. Through the entire process he explained with clarity the legal issues and the law, and helped me define goals to navigate the divorce and then stabilize and build the next part of my life.
He told me what was realistic or not, attainable or not. He definitely advocated for me and what I deserved. He was compassionate while negotiating custody issues and arrangements. He obtained excellent results through both negotiation and litigation and protected my and my children's financial future.
It was extremely comforting to have Mr. Pearlstein and his team in my corner during what was a lonely, hurtful, scary process. My divorce was long and Mr. Pearlstein stayed the course with unparalleled professionalism, yet with empathy. His patience is unending. His commitment to his client is stellar. I feel I couldn't have gotten through it without him. If anyone told me they were in need of a divorce attorney I would immediately say one name: Brian Pearlstein.

Mr. Pearlstein represented me in a difficult child support modification case. From the beginning he explained where I stood from a legal standpoint, counseled me with patience and understanding through the difficult phases of the case and in the end, negotiated a result that was better than I ever dreamed! Mr. Pearlstein is the consummate professional. He always had my best interests in mind as well as my children and was willing to fight hard for me when I didn't think I had any fight left.. I always knew I could trust his advice (which is saying a lot as many people I know have changed divorce lawyers numerous times). I never for one second thought I was fighting this battle alone. And through it all, Mr. Pearlstein was able to stay objective for me when I wasn't. As far as family law lawyers go, Mr. Pearlstein is simply the best. I highly recommend him. I would never use anyone else.

I would highly recommend Mr. Pearlstein to anyone who needs an attorney to deal with anything related to family law. Mr. Pearlstein is very responsive and has kept me well informed during a very stressful time. Mr. Pearlstein is very knowledgeable and a leader in his field.

I never, ever, imagined my marriage not being until death do us part. Yet, 5 months after sinking our life savings into the purchase of a new home and 2 months after my father tragically passed, my wife hit me with the unexpected news that she was leaving. The separation, and eventual divorce, took many turns (in terms of discoveries, emotions, etc.) that I am not going to go into here, but there was always one constant, one stabilizing force through it all - my legal representation. From Day 1, Kristina and Mr. Pearlstein allowed me to vent when I needed to; helped me focus when I needed to; and provided me with an intangible feeling of comfort - because while the rest of my world was crashing I knew they had my best interest at heart and sincerely wanted to help me get through the divorce and on with my life. The legal advice was superb and they were flexible and focused on achieving the outcomes I needed and wanted. I hope to never go through a divorce again, but if I do - or if any of my friends do - there is no doubt who I will seek to represent me.
