Stuart is a capable, efficient and kind lawyer who presents issues in a clear and concise manner. He is professional and caring. His fees were very reasonable and fair. I would definitely recommend him and believe he will help you to feel more relaxed and secure while facing a difficult time in life. I had no idea who to go to but read some reviews. I hope this helps someone else.

Being married to a lawyer, getting divorced from one I knew was going to take someone who was top notch. Stuart was more than that. Not only is he knowledgable of the law and astute in navigating the intricacies of every nuance and scenario that was proposed during our consultations, he does so with finesse and compassion. He was able to effectively discuss strategy with reassurance and confidence which is born from years of professional experience intertwined with fundamental knowledge of human nature and his own personal relationships. Stuart has been blessed with a special blend of talent, humanitarianism, intellect, and just the right personality that women seeking to protect themselves, their assets and their children will find him to be the perfect fit. Although he certainly would represent me through this divorce process, unfortuantely I am relocating and can only pray to find someone like him in my new home state. I would highly recommend him to anyone,

THIS HAS TO BE THE BEST LAWYER I HAVE EVER BEEN AROUND!!! MY GRANDDAUGHTER RETAINED HIM FOR CHILD CUSTODY AND HE WAS UNBELIEVEABLE.I WORKED WITH ANOTHER LAWYER JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO AND HE WAS TERRIBLE. ALL HIS PAPER WORK WAS EVERY WHERE HE COULDNT FIND HALF OF WHAT HE WAS LOOKING FOR THIS LAWYER HAD EVERYTHING IN ORDER AND COULD GO RIGHT TO WHAT HE NEEDED. HE WAS JUST THE BEST IN EVERYTHING HE DID.

When I began my search for legal representation I had absolutely no idea where to start. There are so many choices and for something so important it is critical to make the right choice. I hope this review will help others in a similar situation to take assurance that selecting Stuart Axilbund will be a wise decision. He is very astute and thorough. Through the entire process he was available and provided good advice and was able to offer a sound legal perspective. Through the actual court proceeding, Stuart was able to grasp important details and navigate well throughout as the situation evolved. He was reassuring and honest. Stuart was able to zoom in on the most important details and effectively communicate them. In a highly stressful and emotional time his professionalism, experience, and knowledge brought a calmness and quiet confidence to me. Stuart also went above and beyond meeting my family and addressing their concerns. I also appreciated his willingness to work out a payment plan with me. He was always sensitive to keeping communication concise and to the point and to make the most of our time. Stuart is very genuine and easy to talk with when sharing personal details about your case. I would without any reservation encourage anyone to utilize his services; especially other single mothers who are looking for a way to protect their children and do their best for them. You will not be disappointed. My family and I cannot thank Stuart enough for his exemplary efforts.

Mr. Axilbund represented me for a divorce with contested issues concerning custody, marital assets, and finances. He took the lead on filing all necessary documents and worked with me in responding to complaints and filing counter complaints. I am able to highly recommend the services of Stuart Axibund because I was greatly satisfied in my interactions with Mr. Axilbund. His professionalism, knowledge of the law, empathy to my situation, and personable nature make it easy to write a positive review of his services. Mr. Axilbund was up front in billing, often coming up with self-help options to save on unnecessary fees and assisted with keeping our conversations on scope to limit my overhead. My concerns were addressed in a timely manner and answered to my satisfaction. If I have a need for services in the future, Mr. Axilbund would be my first call. If you are in need of lawyer services I would suggest that he be your first call as well.

I found Mr. Axilbund through a little online reserach. I was looking for an A+ lawyer to help me with a custody case to get more time with my daughter. On first meeting him I was immediately impressed. He didn't promise me the world, but instead explained how he felt different points to my case might be addressed. He talked about the "important" things and came across as a man who knew what he was doing.
I also had the opportunity to see him at work on another case before my custody hearing. Very impressed. His experience shows in a court room setting.
In the end, I got everything I was asking for plus things that I hadn't even considered. There's no doubt in my mind that without Mr. Axilbund's help I would not have done so well.
Anyone considering Mr. Axilbund for representation should meet him in person. From that point the decision is easy.
Thanks again for all your help.

Mr. Axilbund was the first lawyer I ever needed. He was very knowledgeable about my child custody and is still currently working/helping with my child support. Anytime I would email him he was always very quick to response. I will most defiantly call him in the future in ever needed again.

The entire process of divorce was devastating to me. Mr. Axilbund made me feel as though I was his only client. The compassion and dedication that he had for my case was unbelievable. No matter what came up along the way he was there for me with an answer or just advice. As bad of an experience as divorce was for me, Mr Axilbund made it as pleasant as it could be. Very attentive, compassionate and very thorough. Can not say enough good things.

Mr.Axilbund handled my divorce case.
The process was not finalized since I moved abroad.
However my experience with the way he handled my case was very positive.
He was prepared and thorough, with intelligent approach, creative with good strategical thinking.
I truly appreciated that he was objective and pragmatic, at the same time supportive and assertive, very professional.
He prepared my case so that it would reflect the reality including psychological/human aspects and I gained confidence in him and through him in positive resolution with least posssible damage.

Sturat Axilbund is without hesitation the PREMIER ATTORNEY to handle your divorce/separation. He is very caring, professional, efficient and truely believes in his client. He personally reads every document and item you will submit. He was truly prepared during the deposition, trial and follow-up. His fees are extremely reasonable.
He is most sensitive to your concerns and the concerns of your children. He responds to all inquiries (I had many) within 24 hours, most times within the hour, if feasible. He will not intimidate you, force you to make decisions and weighs all options. You are never "out of the loop" because every step of the process is thoroughly communicated to a level of understanding for the client.
His office is in an ideal location. His phone calls are promptly received and response time is appropriate. He even phoned me when he would be away for a family emergency (death), so I never felt out of touch with my attorney.
Fees/payment is not the driving force during the process. His fees are reasonable, given the amount of time and preparation he provides. I had two other attorneys and this was not received as kindly as Stuart. He is a devoted family man, husband and father and that will be evident in how he responds to the needs/concerns of you and your family members. He respects his client, believes in their case and is very sensitive to the many circumstances within your divorce proceedings.
I would, without hesitation recommend Stuart to handle your case. Nothing is impossible when your divorce is handled with the grace and professionalism of Stuart Axilbund!

Mr. Axilbund was incredibly helpful as I proceeded through the divorce process. He was polite and patient with me when I emailed him with questions and I had many! I felt comfortable, relaxed and informed throughout the entire process. I felt his rates were fair and he did an excellent job. I highly recommend him!

Stuart Axilbund has been such a blessing to my family. My husband and I have had to endure two very long and stressful custody cases and I dont know how we would have managed without Stuart. We couldnt have asked for a more knowledgeable, professional and down to earth attorney.
Stuart was always available to answer our questions and keep us up to speed on what was going on....We were never left in the dark about anything. He was always very honest with us - Always telling us the reality of the situation and not just telling us what we wanted to hear and I am very thankful to him for that.
Throughout both cases Stuart kept a very cool, confident, and professional demeanor at all times and when it was time to go toe to toe with the opposing party he was prepared, on time, and on point. He has my utmost respect and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a devoted and honest attorney!
Thanks to Stuart our family unit has continued to grow stronger. My husband gets to spend so much more time with his daughter, our kids have grown even closer, and my relationship with my step daughter has continued to flourish.
Thanks again Stuart!

I have been through three support hearings and never got satisfaction until Stuart was recommended to me. I felt that the other lawyers were just trying to get the case over with so they can get paid. With Stuart it was differant I felt satified for the first time, that when the case was done that someone stood up for me and what i wanted.

Stuart is an excellent Lawyer, he always kept me in the loop about my ongoing custody situation. He gave me great advice and fought for me until the end. He is not a "typical" lawyer who presses the money issue he works hard and is 110% honest with me. I appreciate everything he has done for my family and I.

If i can say anything about Stuart Axilbund I will start with the fact that the man comes prepared for battle with a cool head. In a most tense custody case between me and my ex-wife where the cards were stacked against me, he was the best attorney to have on my side! I may not have won the amount of custody that I now hold had he not paid careful attention to detail and help me have the courage to be honest about everything. It paid off to be completely honest with him and let him do what he does best. Mine was a case that I might not have even bothered to fight in consideration of the odds that where against me and i am glad a friend referred me to Stuart. The moment he won my case I will never forget as long as I live. An honest man who has showed me that redemption is possible for anyone. He was able to get me the best possible outcome in a very tough situation and continues to be on my side.
