Alexandra is AWESOME!!!! She helped me out with my follow up hearing. I hired her because my ex husband was giving me a hard time over EVERYTHING when it came to our daughter (child support, medical bills, etc) and it was very draining for me. Alexandra listened to me down to every little detail and helped smooth everything out for me (she put my ex in his place), down to where my spiteful ex is now civil with me (need I say more). She was always there when I needed something, gave me great advice, and responded to all of my emails and returned all of my calls (even for small things). She noted everything that I wanted made sure it was all on record the day we went to court! She is definetely a great catch and I'm so glad I hired her, and thankful for everything she did for me! With Alexandra Lavinsky....you don't need to look any further!

I recently had to appear in court to have a judgement pushed through. Alexandra was informative and attentive throughout the entire process and ensured that I had the pieces in place that I needed to succeed.
The biggest compliment I could mention about Alexandra, is that she made me feel like my particular case was important to her and that's invaluable when you're going through such a personal and sometimes emotional experience.
Thank you Alexandra!!

Alexandra’s expertise and advice was invaluable during my divorce. Alexandra was consistent, informative and always available. She made me aware of all of my rights and options. We discussed all possible outcomes and made plans for several. She made me aware I had choices and she gave me support to make decisions that were in my best interest. I can’t imagine going through this difficult process without her. I recommend her highly to anyone who needs legal support.

I was intimidated by all the specific laws detailing the process but Alexandra was there for me and got me a fair judgement to me and my family.
Thank you Alexandra

I had recently gone through a messy separation from my partner, and the pain, emotional trauma and stress of the experience was compounded by a falsified domestic violence restraining order charge against me. I had never dealt with anything like this or anything legal at all, in fact. I consulted a few attorneys but my instinct led me to go with Alexandra, and I am so happy I did. From the start, Alexandra went the extra mile - she was able to acquire information about my case from the court that other attorneys said they wouldn't be able to access; she was always responsive, even on weekends; she had multiple strategies on hand, knows the laws inside and out, and thinks on her feet; she makes you rest easy and feel you are in good hands; and perhaps most importantly, Alexandra is deeply perceptive about human nature and interactions, an indispensable and essential asset in the delicate arena of domestic disputes. Throughout this harrowing and emotionally exhausting experience, I felt I not only had an attorney, but a friend and a supporter on my side - advocacy at its best. While we were in court, Alexandra managed to get my ex to drop the charges with a civil agreement between us, no easy task considering the aggression he had shown throughout the whole thing, and she also refunded part of my retainer fee as the case was resolved in one day. Compassionate, professional, thorough, strong, intelligent and yes, firecracker is a great word to describe her - I would strongly recommend Alexandra to anyone for any legal advice they are seeking.

I went to see Alexandra 2 days before I had a scheduled court date. I was extremely nervous about the legal process I was about to go through and had little to no information in how to handle my case; I desperately needed someone knowledgable to advise me.
Alexandra was efficient, informative and by the time I walked out of her office I felt like I was in control of the situation at hand. We discussed a plan and she walked me through my options and the avenues I could pursue.
Going through most legal matters is usually an ordeal but Alexandra made it digestible and painless. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone needing legal help in family matters.

I hired Alexandra to help me with a child support modification that had I had attempted to do myself but that ended up backfiring on me, with a reduction in support due to the courts own mistakes and an unexpected request to the judge from my ex regarding my income, (which he granted). I needed help filing for a motion for reconsideration and had only 4 days to file.
I first met with Alexandra for an initial consultation, (of which she did not charge me for), after meeting with two other lawyers. I almost didn't go to our first meeting because I was so exhausted and disappointed with the other attorneys whom hardly looked me in the eye and couldn't even repeat back to me what I was saying. Alexandra immediately looked through my court filings and found 2 mistakes that the court had made (number of children was imputed at 1, not 3 and the percentage of time with their non custodial father was imputed at 37%, when it was actually around 28-29%). We spoke about my third concern, which had to do with my non-taxable income as an apartment manager, and she gave me some sound advice. The whole time she was attentive, informative, and compassionate. I didn't hire her on the spot because I was still trying to pull together funds and budget for hiring an attorney. She told me as I was walking out the door that even if I did not use her services that I could call anytime if I had a legal question I needed help with. I hired her the next day.
With only a few days left to file (during a holiday season), she quickly, efficiently, and I should say, beautifully articulated a motion for reconsideration. So then began what we both thought would be a simple motion to correctly adjust child support for my 3 children. Court date was set, see you in 30 days, etc.
It took over a year to finally settle.
Although the two mistakes made by the court were easily recognized and corrected at our first hearing, the issue of my non-taxable income was stumping the already incompetent judge. Due only to the this judge’s laziness and inability to recognize those legal statues and the ex’s obstinate attitude about providing a modest increase for his 3 children, we had to go back to court 4 times even though we had provided all the laws and statutes concerning my income to the court. Alexandra not only stuck by me the whole time, but her compassionate ferocity for my case did not wane and actually grew stronger. So much so that at times, I felt that I was her only client. Her dedication to her clients comes across not only professionally, but with personal consideration for their very distressing situations.
Most importantly, Ms. Lavinsky's understanding of the law is astounding, not just in her ability to write the most astute and beautifully intelligent legal briefs, but her knowledge of the legal system is omnisciently at the tip of her tongue. I fully recognized this at one of our court dates/hearings. We were #21 on the docket, so we had to sit through quite a few hearings before us. As we’re sitting there with the judge fumbling through his post-it noted law books trying to figure out whatever legal statue he had to go by, I leaned over to ask her thoughts.
She explained everything before the judge even found the page he was looking for.
Although we ended up finally settling, (just to be over with the ridiculous year of continuances), I would not have been able to come close to what Alexandra achieved in my case AND she was even ready to re-file a new OSC for me.
This woman is a magnificent attorney, brilliant with her knowledge and compassion and will be a badass firecracker of a lawyer that will be dedicated to you and your case.

As a certified paralegal, I am accustomed to helping others in the legal arena, but when it came to helping myself through one of the most difficult times of my life- I was afraid, overwhelmed, felt alone and helpless. A long time friend highly recommended Alexandra. Alexandra immediately greeted me with warmth and professionalism. I felt comfortable to openly discuss all issues. She listened attentively and put my mind at ease with her depth of knowledge and expertise. She was my advocate, she got to know me at a personal level and as a client in your darkest hour, it's a great feeling to know that your advocate "gets you," is strong, understands your individual situation(s), and will fight for you.

I was referred to Mr. Lavinsky by a trusted friend for a family law matter. Ms. Lavinsky was factual, went out of her way to be helpful and available, and was prompt in attempting to bring the unpleasant situation to a halt. She was extremely goodhearted. I recommend her highly.
