I went thru a nasty divorce that took 3 years to litigate but Constance got me the most important thing I wanted, FULL SOLE LEGAL AND PHYSICAL custody of my daughter. She always kept me informed and I always understood the process. She was fair in her charges and honest. I'm recommending her now to my friend, also going thru a divorce.

Constance represented me during my divorce from the beginning till the end . She did an excellent job in a three year long extremely complicated and confrontational environment with my ex wife and the five different lawyers that she had hired.
My marriage was miserable, the court seemed still medieval but it could have been worse if it wasn't for the fantastic service and hard work of Constance. Yes three years of heavy litigations with my ex which was excessively difficult to deal with and did not respect any of the court orders made along the way, resulting in new motions or osc's just about on a weekly basis.
Constance took the time to know me as a person and as a parent. She understood my interest in my child's well being and helped me figure out what the best plan of action would be in order to get this situation under control, and then to work toward resolution. She actively and persistently pursued justice and closure in my case, again this was made difficult due to the several changes of judges and ex"s lawyers and minor's counsel during the course of the case.
So what can you say about a divorce attorney who always either immediately took or returned my calls and emails, night, weekends and would meet me according to my schedule day or night, weekends, holidays even with no notice ?
What can you say about someone who never wavered from my case even when I took my frustrations on her and even yelled, she somehow knew that I needed to vent and even though I was paying her to protect me during my divorce she gave me just as good, if not better advice than my family and friends, helping me to make the right decisions.
I highly recommend her to anybody going thru these very difficult times in life.

Ms. Bessada is the most honest, hard-working attorney I've ever met. She handled my husband's divorce from his first wife and later was able to get both physical and legal custody of my husbands kids from his first marriage. I trust her with my life!
