Thank you
I would not wish a divorce on anyone. But if anyone does have to go through a divorce then I would wish them Kristen as their lawyer to guide them and help them navigate this difficult emotional, legal, and financial situation. She is wise beyond her years, utterly knowledgeable about the law, competent and thorough, dotting every i and crossing every t. She is a skilled negotiator, staying calm, and de-escalating strong emotions , while always keeping her eye on what matters. She helped me to take care of myself, take care of my children, and to negotiate a fair settlement that left both parties intact and whole, and our children well cared for. A year after the agreement I am still noticing little things she suggested that I did not understand the importance of at the time, and finding myself grateful yet again for Kristen thinking through every single detail.

Thank you
Everyone’s divorce is emotional, difficult and stressful. Kristen protected me and helped empower me to see beyond the immediate situation. Her guidance and compassion towards my situation transformed to pure fire when dealing with my ex and my ex’s attorney. She never said ‘no’ to a call or delayed a response to an email because she was too busy. I am thankful for her professionalism, kind hand and bulldog attitude. You can’t go wrong hiring her.

A lawyers Lawyer!!
I was referred to Kristen Lipschutz by my estate attorney, Richard Asoian. How fortunate was I to have been her client. She listened to my issue and made her recommendation. Her followup,.attention to detail and follow through were exemplary. From the first consultation to the court room, she guided me through the process.She is a very professional lady and a credit to her chosen profession. I highly recommend her!

Excellent Attorney in Family Law
I hired Kristen 10 months ago for a divorce and child custody matter. Kristen was extremely knowledgeable and on top of the case at all times. She was very professional, responsive, practical and was able to effectively communicate with the opposing attorney and client. She was extremely well prepared and in the end I was extremely satisfied with my representation. She works for a highly regarded firm and there is no question she will continue to be a highly sought after attorney in family law for years to come.

Clarity through the unknown
My children mean the world to me. When faced with a modification regarding custody of my children, I knew choosing the right attorney was paramount. I met with Joyce Perocchi and Kristen Lipschutz at the Perocchi Family Law Group and I instantly felt comfortable. Since our first meeting, I have worked hand in hand with Kristen to navigate the process that involves many unkowns. My divorce took place in California and Kristen seamlessly transitioned my case from California to Massachusetts. She has given me reliable guidance during a time when there was understandably significant anxieties. Her legal expertise and professionalism are matched only by her timing with kindness, truthfulness and comforting reassurances. Kristen was fantastic at explaining the process each step of the way. She was extremely responsive and she made herself available even when she was not in the office. Kristen’s compassion and understanding showed me that she greatly valued me as a client. I would recommend Kristen to anyone who has to go through this difficult process.

Dedicated and Compassionate Divorce Attorney
I Unequivocally and most HIGHLY recommend Attorney Kristen Maalouf for anyone who must battle and endure the complexities of a divorce and hopes to seek the best possible outcome! Hoping to settle out of court with my now ex-husband, who regrettably had become extremely acrimonious and irrational, Kristen, amongst many others, had advised me to follow through to a full court case. However Kristen complied with my preference to seek an out-of-court Settlement even though it may not have been her first choice for me. She understood my fragile, personal circumstances and diligently and doggedly fought for my best interest in every dimension of the Settlement. She Always responded to every single phone call and/or e-mail immediately if she were available, and not involved in court or with clients, but always within less than 24 hours even if it ran into nights or weekends. If I needed immediate advice or simply reassurance, and she were unavailable, her knowledgeable and supportive staff would work on her behalf to their fullest extent. This was always still followed with an e-mail or phone call from her if circumstances warranted. She spent endless hours researching every complex dimension of my case. She was able to keep my thinking rationale, calculating finances in my best interest, strategizing on matters in which every dimension of my future single life could be fairly separated from my ex-husband, ALWAYS keeping My Best Interest First and Foremost her Priority. She aided in advising me on current and future finances and multiple other relevant issues. She did this all with such comfort, knowledge, fortitude, strength and reassurance! I cannot speak, nor recommend her highly enough. I will forever be grateful to Kristen for her intelligence and determination in combination with her compassion and encouragement during one of the darkest periods of my life. She provided me with Hope and fulfilled her promise of Success!
