Deb and her staff are knowledge in the 2 fields I hired them to handle for me, which was divorce and quick claim deed. They are very easy to work with and scheduling was never a problem
Deborah did the mediation for my ex-husband and I for custody and I would recommend her to anyone going through this! She is extremely professional and does not show bias to either side. She is looking for the best result for everyone involved. We walked out of the mediation with all parties satisfied that we made the best agreement that will benefit our children the most.
It goes without saying that the process of divorce is overwhelming. Particularly when it is not your choice, it's painful, frustrating, bewildering, and consuming. There were a few things that carried me through the last year - the love of family, good friends, strong faith, the collaborative process, and a compassionate, knowledgeable, strong, professional attorney in Deborah L. Bennett Berecz. Deb's broad scope of knowledge and professionalism were critical through the rough waters of divorce. Her integrity and sense of justice and fairness were brought to negotiations at every turn. When I was tempted to "give in", she encouraged strength. When I was tempted to be too firm, she was able to present alternatives in ways that allowed me to see another direction. Her advocacy and intuitive ability to diffuse and neutralize emotional and potentially divisive conversations allowed for a just conclusion to the proceedings and the preservation of my own integrity and self-respect. Throughout the process I felt safe emotionally and legally. I am grateful for this particular process and deeply grateful for Deb's professional knowledge, advocacy, integrity, and skill. When asked to evaluate anything I'm usually hard-pressed to give full marks, but Deb and her team receive them from me. Divorce stinks, but having Deb journey through it with you will be one of the wisest decisions you will make.
Having Deborah represent me in the collaborative divorce process was truly a gift. At a time when things can be very stressful and uncertain, she worked on my behalf and on the behalf of my then husband, to make sure we understood the process, had the information we needed and also listened intently to our wishes for our future and the future of our children. She was caring and extremely professional. I felt very cared for in the process. Deborah knows the law, understands the stress divorce can bring and works to alleviate the fears and anxieties in her clients through her caring approach. In addition to being an advocate for the collaborative process of divorce ( if it comes to that), I am very much an advocate for Deborah and have mentioned her to anyone I know who is going through a marriage dissolution.
We had an excellent experience with Deborah. She is a skilled professional with the personal touch, skilled in her work, sensitive to client needs and quite capable of guiding her clients through the mediation process in a fair and equitable manner.
I would not hesitate to recommend Deborah to anyone considering mediation as their preferred option to resolution.
She is very helpful, and I greatly appreciated her wise counsel. She helped me to go through my divorce settlement with dignity and respect. I will recommend her whenever I have an opportunity to do so.
