Judy was very helpful and answered all my questions in a swift and proper manner. I highly recommend her to anyone who has questions about will county court system
I was amazed at how prompt and helpful Ms. Goldstein was in response to my question. She was knowledgeable, informative and patient with my many questions.
Judy handled everything I needed during my divorce, and kept me up to date on everything. Even during the process when my then wife and I tried counseling some more, Judy was supportive and didn't try to push the process to quickly, or in any particular direction. The case proceeded at a rate that I needed and felt comfortable with. The separation and divorce were difficult times and I know at times, our case was delayed because I just needed more time to accept the reality. Judy was fine with this which made working with her so much easier.
During my divorce, I did have a need for an attorney to represent my interest in a case that was taking place halfway across the state. While Judy didn't specifically handle that type of case---or the location---she was able to reach out to her network and find an attorney that could step in and represent my interests. What I learned was that the other attorney she recommended for the other case seemed to be the go to guy as well, as he was able to handle everything for me.
So, not only did she handle my divorce, but had her network to reach out to on another matter for me. I am truly lucky to have worked with her, and thankful for her efforts on my behalf...
Thanks again Judy!
Gave me great advice and very fast feedback. She answered all my questions.
I have been fighting my ex on and off for years trying to get increased child support and basic cooperation in raising our daughter. For example he has refused to obey court orders requiring him to turn over his tax returns. I couldn't afford to take him back to court until I remarried and got some help from my current husband. My ex still refused to obey the orders and our daughter has lost out on a lot of scholarship money because deadlines came up and we could not fill out financial applications. Well, we went to court after my ex and his attorney stalled everything for months. He was found in contempt and ordered to turn over his tax returns or he will go to jail. I will also get an increase in child support for the few more months until our daughter graduates and he has to pay my attorney's fees. I am very grateful I found Judy. She did a wonderful job. I just wish I had hired her years ago.
We were nervous that something could happen and our adoption would not go through. The lawyer explained the whole process to us and made sure we understood each step. Everything went smooth and as described and the adoption of our child from South American is now final. We are very grateful to Judy Goldstein and her office.
I originally hired Judy Goldstein because friends told me about her. It was supposed to be a simple uncontested divorce. My wife became hostile and demanding and tried to turn the kids against me so the case took a bad turn. Judy handled the change and the new circumstances professionally and with ease. She told me what I needed to worry about and what might be frivolous. I was always kept in the loop and knew the status of my case at all times. Nothing was done without discussing with me first.
What we thought would be a quick case turned out to last over a year. The fees charged were fair and many times I was not charged for things that Judy or her office did.
Judy’s office staff is knowledgeable and courteous. Everyone is down to earth. Judy and the others made me feel comfortable when I called or came in the office no matter how upset I was.
I have referred several friends and family members to this office and those who have hired her are pleased. I especially like Judy’s respect for members of the military, She is always willing to help them when she can.
The lawyer was wonderful to deal with. I understood every step of the process, even when my ex was being very difficult. We had some unique problems and Judy was able to get a result which was fair to both of us. I appreciated the honest billing. There were many no charges. The office staff was great to deal with. Overall, I could not have asked for a better lawyer for my divorce. Thank you, Judy!
She does not keep you informed will keep pushing cases longer than need be to get more money out of you. She doesn't return phone calls, has a secretary who apparently does relay messages. Not trustworthy at all. Beware is all I have to say. She is in a hurry to bill you and bleed you dry yet she doesn't keep you informed unless you call the office and then you'll be lucky if you get a call back if you are leaving a message with that incompetent secretary...for the money she charges keeping clients posted should be a priority.
I didn't always hear what I wanted to hear but the attorney was always honest with me. She kept me informed so I knew exactly what was going on with my case. The billing was fair. The office help was polite. I am happy with the results of my case.
