I have been working with Ms. Zakheim since November 2010 on my divorce. Throughout this case she has given me expert guidance and educated me about my options every step of the way. I let her know from the beginning that I was interested in being as amicable as possible, and she has respected that while still protecting my rights. At three specific times, when a more agressive approach was reqired, she was masterful in negociating through what I believed to be total impasse. I could not imagine going through this process without her. I trust her knowlege of the law, her judgement, her ethics, and her desire to reach the best possible outcome. As I move to the next phase, I will hire Simona for my estate planning needs. I know I am in good hands.
