Oh my gosh what a crack up these reviews are. It's so funny how some people just don't get it. Dru not only told me what was going happen in my divorce, but also predicted the following 3 years of my life. Love you Dru!
Separating from my wife was one of the hardest things I've ever done. But I felt better with Dru at my side. She didn't judge me and provided competent representation every step of the way. I got a resolution that kept my kids in my life. After attending maybe 6 court appearances with Dru, I can tell you that even on her worst day she was better than most.
I first retained Dru Horenstein several years ago to obtain enforcement of parenting plan and child support orders that my ex had consistently ignored.
My ex's attorney used every trick in the book to delay, confuse, and prolong the matter. Despite this, Dru got results that saved my residential time and finances from a bitter antagonist (who repeatedly drew contempt judgments).
Dru knows what counts in court filings and hearings and is skilled in organizing presentation materials that are focused and on point. She's a consummate professional who keeps me in the loop, answers my calls, and provides excellent counsel. I don't like to bring business to court but when I do, I trust Dru to take care of it.
Dru gave me great advice on child custody issues that were very important when my ex took me to court and we won in great part due to that advice and due to her knowledge of what the judge would find important in our declaration.
Honestly I do not know where to begin. First of all I have never had an attorney in my life. Dru Horenstein was recommended by a friend who had gone through a bad child custody case/divorce and said she was awesome. Not knowing how to proceede, I consulted with Dru and hired her the day of our consult. At first I thought that I'd found my champion, (she talked a good talk), someone who would have my back, be on my side and look out for me because that's what she said she would do. For the most part my ex and I were very civil and worked out allot of things on our own. In the beginning she had very little to do besides get me temporary spousal support. As time went by, (me of course not knowing how this all works), things just got worse and worse. I had decided to cut ties with my ex and let her handle it. Well big mistake. Once she was on her own, she totally dropped the ball !!!!! My divorce took nearly two years and for no reason besides the fact that she was "incompetent"... To make a long story short, because I could go on and on with the horrible job she did., After my so called divorce, I had to hire another attorney to clean up her mess and to understand what I had actually agreed to. I still feel sick that she did me such an injustice!
Currently there are two other postings with “Lousy” as the titles. I can only echo what the other two people wrote. It was as if I had already reviewed her. Having Dru Horenstein as a lawyer was actually worse than have no lawyer at all.
Never seems to be quite prepared for court. Does not stand up for her client. In the last year she never won any of the issues we went to court on. Rolls over to the opposing party rather than to stand up and defend her client.
I have NEVER worked with an attorney as incompitant as Dru Horenstein. She does NOT do what the judge orders, nor does she contact her clients or the opposing clients. She behaves like a child in the courtroom with her little temper tantrums. She is very unprofessional and does not really seem to know what she is talking about.
