Linda was instrumental in helping me maintain my rights while being divorced. She helped with the division of assets in a fair manner and her communication was superb. After thirty years in the business, she's solid.
Linda was on top of the game when she represented me in my divorce. Initially, she listened to my story and found and copied for me the appropriate statutes relating to shared custody and maintenance. She knew how the courts were leaning on both issues. She took charge of the one meeting we had with both parties and both attorneys in a way that was most impressive. You would have thought that she called the meeting, but it was the opposing attorney. Linda outlined an agenda, and we all left the meeting with a list of things to do. She kept me on target in terms of what to fight for and what to let go of. I was very happy with the outcome, and very pleased with how Linda fought for me. Especially at the last moment in front of the judge where the opposing attorney tried to changed the signed marriage settlement agreement. Linda called the opposing attorney's bluff in a very successful way.
She is anal, and believe me, you want this in your divorce attorney. She remembers details in a way that is almost uncanny. I have referred friends to her, and all are very happy with her services.
Linda was adept at handling my marital settlement agreement process, despite life events that continually changed the scope of marital vs. non-marital assets.
I would hire her again, and she has my highest recommendation.
It was my first time purchasing real estate, and it turned out to be a rather complicated transaction. I was lucky to have Linda to represent me and when needed, to take charge of the whole situation and make sure that buyer, seller, seller's attorney, two agents, insurance broker, mortgage broker and accountant were all on the same page. She was attentive to detail, very responsive and responsible. Highly recommended.
Ms Kagan represented me on an appeal case that followed a very protracted, complicated child support case where the judge had found in my favor. From the very first meeting, I knew that Ms Kagan had an eye for detail, knew her statutes, was fluent in legal library research and, so important to me, had the will of a terrier. I knew she'd fight on behalf of my child and her rights and that she'd be a formidable adversary to the other party's attorney. She was brilliant in the courtroom. A champion.
Linda helped me during my divorce - even though it was reasonably amicable I needed someone to make sure my rights were not being violated. Her philosophy was to do this in the quickest and least expensive way. She was assertive when she needed to, and did not the other lawyer get away with any nonsense. Bottom line - she helped make my divorce easier.
