It is a great pleasure to endorse this lawyer. I hired Mr. Finkel to represent me in my divorce case last year, based upon the positive recommendation of a family friend who worked with him before. I could not have been happier with the representation from him and his office staff. Mr. Finkel worked hard to help me reach an amicable and (more than) fair settlement.
I've heard other clients tout his professional expertise and the concern he shows for his clients. They are right. I was fortunate to have Mr. Finkel defend me.
I'm pleased to recommend Mr. Finkel to anyone needing a divorce attorney.
Thank you, Mr. Finkel!

Mr. Finkel padded my bill. If I didn't watch closely, I would have been duped. He is extremely arrogant and only cares about money. He does not care about people. If I called and spoke to him for five minutes, I was billed for an hour. Luckily I could that. He was a bit too flirtatious for my taste. I was going through a difficult time in my life and I did not need to feel uncomfortable around my lawyer. I had to fire him. I never got the balance of my retainer back. He did absolutely nothing other than take a large retainer.

Barry is a consummate professional! He is a well-trusted, upstanding person that will always act in your best interest. The office staff is very courteous, always responsive and a pleasure to work with as well. I would highly recommend Barry to anyone going through a divorce for his superior knowledge and vast experience. He will always provide you with sound advice - especially given the fact that this can be one of the most difficult periods of your life. You will be in excellent hands with Barry Finkel by your side.

Barry worked with me on my divorce years ago and has remained a trusted attorney for me and all I have referred to him. There is no one better. He is compassionate, calm, knowledgable, and very professional. He is very well respected by other attorneys and judges which makes him easy to work with. Barry truly helped me through a very rough time with my divorce and couldn't have done a better job. I highly recommend him for anyone needing a professional, experienced, and diligent attorney.

Finkel only billed for about 1/2 of my retainer and then would neither issue a refund or work it off to settle "post-judgement" issues. He did not provide or have a signed terms of representation so I ignorant of his policies. When I discovered a billing error, he sent me $500.

Barry is the best. I never had any problems and he is very proactive.

This attorney billed me for servicers not performed.
He was never prepared for court.
If this attorney did a good job for me, why would I be writing this.

I have been impressed with the professionalism and results obtained via Barry's family law practice. I am in "for the long haul" with a very conflict-oriented (combative) ex-spouse who never ceases to negatively surprise me. I am exceedingly pleased that I have Barry and his team in my corner! I would highly recommend this firm's services to anyone! He is a "winner"....odds are you will be too with his advice & services!

I would highly recommend Barry to my friends and family. I fired my current lawyer to hire Barry. He was highly recommended. Barry & Angela came into the picture and sealed the deal, and my divorce was over!!! I had an unruly spouse (so was her lawyer). Barry and his team did not put up with the run around from my spouse's lawyer like my previous lawyer did, and I am so thankful for Barry for finally ending my divorce!

As former client, I would not recommond Barry I. Finkel. He is more concerned about padding his bill on follow up nonsense phone calls. Has no expieranced staff and abandons clients and give little guidance.
