    • I do not recommend Joanne Reisman.
    • I hired Joanne more than 3 years ago.
    • Joanne handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    I came to this lawyer with a complicated divorce case. She charged a lot of money upfront and promised to help me. After that she started being sketchy with her advice and changing her proposed course of action almost every time we spoke. After I tried to clarify what she was going to do she yelled at me saying that it was cheaper for me to email her instead of calling. Then she said I should postpone my divorce all together for undefined period of time. I could not get any answers out of her about what she was going to do to help me.
    At the end she did absolutely nothing in court -- didn't file a single form for me and didn't help resolve any issues with my now ex-spouse. I gave up trying to contact her and hired a different lawyer.

      Lawyer Comment:

      This is a fake review. I can't think of any divorces I have had in the last 1 - 3 years that fit the facts of what this person is saying, especially one where a client went over to a different attorney before the case is over. You also can't "postpone" a divorce once it is filed in the court - if if a case hasn't been filed I wouldn't be able to charge a client for more than a single consultation - I don't get money up front for a case that is not going forward in the court. In fact in the last 1 -3 years I was working on Personal Injury case and related appeals so there were very few divorce cases during this time. None of what this person has written makes any sense. I can only conclude that this is a false review from someone that was never truly a client of mine.

      Avvo client reviews leave a lot to be desired. I think the client who is leaving less that a 4 star review should be required to give some detailed information so that at least the lawyer can dispute the issue with Avvo and Avvo can assist in the investigation - My only bar issues over the past 39 years are from adverse parties - with nothing ever being successful just takes time to respond - if they figure out how to use Avvo to sabatogue us that would be totally unfair. there needs to be some accountability to negative posters.

    • I recommend Joanne Reisman.
    • I hired Joanne 1-3 years ago.
    • Joanne handled my Insurance matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Joanne has consulted and helped immensely on more than once. Last time I used her services it was regarding insurance and international travel, she has a wealth of knowledge and experience.

    Thank you so much for your quick response to my sister having a stroke w/o will or POA. Since the eldest son is here from overseas, it was a great comfort to discuss his options with him. We spent most of Sunday with the family and my sister...she passed quietly in her sleep early Monday morning...once again...thank you so much..
