I hired Tina after interviewing 4 other lawyers. That sounds like a lot, but the other lawyers I spoke to either seemed like they were trying very hard to "sell" me, or they didn't give me much info about the law that applied to my case. I instantly clicked with Tina because she gave me real advice, and explained to me the divorce laws and how all of it would fit into my particular case. Tina always talked to me about the realistic pros and cons of my divorce case, which I really appreciated. Other lawyers I spoke with did not do this. In fact, they seemed to be making too many promises. Tina was always honest with me, and her ability to give me all the good AND bad news if there was any was what ultimately steered me in the right direction and lead to settlement of my case. I really believe I got the best possible outcome I could have gotten, and my children are better off because we resolved our case without going to trial.
I also want to say that Tina was always available when I needed her. She's obvioulsly a busy trial lawyer but she would go out of her way to call me back on a Saturday or after hours, and she even took an emergency call while she was travelling (on vacation I believe). I dealt with a lawyer in another matter (not family law) who never responded to any of my calls or emails. Tina was always willing to answer my questions and explain the law to me, and that was really helpful to me to know what was going on in the case and why these things were happening.
I have been through litigation before in other business-related matters, and I kjnow it's extremely costly. I've had friends who went through divorces and paid their attorneys $150,000 in fees or more, some of them taking out loans or second mortgages to be able to come up with the money. Tina's hourly rate was less than the other attorneys I spoke with even though they did not have even half of her qualifications, and her fees were a lot less than my ex-wife's fees for the entire divorce case. It's not cheap to go through this, but with Tina I felt like I got an exceptional value for her integrity, honest dealings, realistic advice, and her experience. She is really top notch in all ways. If you have to go through this, Tina is the person to hire.
I chose Ms. Lewert for my divorce because she is Board Certified and only practices family law. I did not want someone who dabbles in family law along with many other types of law because my divorce involved a lot of different issues and I wanted someone who knew every nuance of family law so I could be sure I was getting the best representation. Ms. Lewert was always there to explain the law and to guide me as to all of my options and possible outcomes. She always went out of her way to keep me informed of any issues arising in my case and answered all of my questions, even after business hours. For a Board Certified attorney her rates were extremely reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend Ms. Lewert and her firm to anyone who needs a top-notch family lawyer.
Ms. Lewert represented me in my child support case. Two of the main reason why I choose her was because she is board certified and is a solo practitioner, I knew that she would be the only one handling my case. She responded to my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. Her office keep me up to date on everything that was being done in my case. Thank you Tina!!!
Ms. Lewert never lost sight of the practical realities of my divorce. Although she listened compassionately so that she understood what she needed to, she did not let me lose sight of my goals and what was acheivable within the system even when things got emotional. She protected my financial interests and my personal interests. Thanks to Ms. Lewert, I no longer have to deal with a difficult ex-. She didn't always tell me what I wanted to hear, but because of that, my case did not drag out longer than it should have. I never felt that she put her own interests ahead of mine. Her judgment was reasonable and her advice sound. She and her staff were good at dealing with difficult and unreasonable people in a professional and ethical way. Thanks to Ms. Lewert, I never got drawn into senseless battles, recovered as quickly as possible from my divorce and was able to move on and enjoy a better life. I have recommended her repeatedly to others who need an excellent family lawyer.
Ms. Lewert just finalized my extremely contentious divorce. It was a long process because my ex and I had various issues which we simply could not agree, but Tina Lewert never steered me wrong. Her legal expertise proved to be very beneficial for me, and I know she obtained the best possible results for me and my children.
I was also very comforted by Tina herself as well as her very patient staff from day one. I did speak to other lawyers in the Boca Raton area prior to retaining Lewert Law Offices, and I chose Tina Lewert because she took the time to talk to me about my case in detail, while so many other lawyers just wanted to talk about their fees right away. She was also very realistic, and her approach is one I completely respect; she is very proficient at playing "devil's advocate" and anticipating strategies and arguments from the other party. Although I know I wasn't her only client, I never doubted that my case was important to her and her staff and that Tina had nothing but my best interests at heart.
When we went to trial, Tina amazed me! She was so professional and she clearly impressed the judge with her preparation and knowledge of the law and procedure. She objected to the other attorney's questions and the judge kept sustaining her objections over and over, and I just felt so proud to have her as my attorney! And she got me exactly what I wanted and more! I would recommend attorney Tina Lewert and Lewert Law Offices to anyone going through a divorce or other family law matter.
Ms. Lewert handled my divorce for me. I initially contacted her because she specializes in divorce and family law. After I met with her I knew that I wanted her to represent me. She was very smart and and self-assured and was able to answer all my questions and explain the divorce process to me. Ms. Lewert was always very prepared whenever we had to go to court and made sure that I was prepared as well. She was confident and aggressive in court, which was important to me because I wanted an attorney who was not afraid to go to court and fight for me. I was able to contact Ms. Lewert whenever I had questions or just needed some reassurance (which was often!) and she always responded to me right away and even texted and emailed me on the weekends and after hours. Her staff was always very helpful and supportive as well and made sure that I was informed of everything that was going on in my case. I would highly recommend Ms. Lewert to anyone who needs a divorce attorney.
I found Ms Lewert after my husband and I had been taken over the coals by not one, not two, but three attorneys, all of whom were unscrupulous, milking us for money ( we subsequently lost our home recently due to the need to take the equity out and went into tremendous debt ). My husbands ex wife, the mother of his son, was using the system to break us, hiding her vast assets, harassing us despite my bout with breast cancer at the time. Ms Lewert worked with us, was fair, showed up to every court date in time or early, gave us her attention and did what she could to help us get past this nightmare that dragged on literally for years. Every other attorney lied to us, and we found out later that each of them should have been disbarred for their lack of professional conduct and have been given the lowest rating by Avvo, and then they told us this was not a case for mediation or ignored our pleas to get to mediation. Tina Lewert told us that mediation wasn't optional, no one would hear this case until it had gone to mediation and and attempt made to resolve it. They all knew that, but they played us for idiots. Tina had compassion for our situation and did what she could to keep the bills from getting out of control. We went to mediation and resolved the issue and showed us that there was someone out there who is not without compassion and would not let the case or the costs reel out of control. Thank you Tina for everything you did to try to help us.
Billable, billable, billable. Never returns phone calls. I never knew the status of my case. Drug the case out for months with no resolve. I fired her and hired another attorney who had this resolved in a month. Very unprofessional office. I would never recommend this office to anyone. I was more stressed from this office than I was from the case.
