A true angel! An answer to my prayers!!!
After attempting divorce pro-se and failing due to my ex being covertly narcissistic, I was in despair and didn’t know who to turn to that could truly help me. I spent a year stuck not knowing what to do and interviewing different attorneys who did not seem to really understand my situation. I didn’t want to waste myself and my wallet on legal fees and trials because I knew my ex was sneaky and would make the process even harder for me. After consulting with my therapist, she recommended that I call New Hope, to receive additional support I needed for this process. They connected me with a list of legal services, and I contacted the Women’s Bar Foundation, which is where I was matched with Jess. I truly believe Jess was an answer to my prayers. Not only did she agree to take my Divorce case pro-bono, but she also represented me in my restraining order case. She did so with so much grace and knowledge that the judge congratulated her for presenting such a compelling case to him. Not only did he grant me an extension on the restraining order but he granted it for 2 years because of how well the case was presented to him! Jess always listened to me carefully and never missed any details. I never had to repeat myself to her and she was able to understand my situation clearly and comprehensively from the very beginning. She represented me with grace and cohesiveness and she was incredibly kind to me, which is exactly what I needed after everything I had been through for so long. Thanks to Jess, not only was I granted a 2 year extension on the restraining order against my ex, I was also able to get divorced from my abuser, AND she was able to get my children the child support they deserve! I am beyond grateful and happy to have been matched with such an extraordinary Attorney through the Women’s Bar Foundation. Thank you so much Jess! God bless you!!

Highly Recommended!
Jess recently represented me in a complicated divorce. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. Jess fought to the very end to ensure the best possible outcome for me and supported me during this difficult process with compassion and understanding. Jess is extremely competent and professional, and a person of the highest integrity. Her thoroughness and efficiency are incredible. I feel grateful and fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her.

Review of Jess Dubin and her work on a complex prenup
I rarely write reviews, but I wanted to make an exception in the case of Jess Dubin, whose work on my prenup exceeded all expectations, and, indeed, exceeded the realized performance of all the many other lawyers, in all areas of the law, i have worked with over time. She used her time extremely efficiently, so bills were always modest. Her language is tight and clear. She asks the right questions and gets to the crux of matters quickly. She turns things around swiftly. .... What else could one ask for? Stepping back, if we had lawyers acting in the role of primary care physicians (PCPs), i would want her to be mine.

Jess Dubin is the one.
Jess Dubin has the best memory of any person I have ever met, she remembered minute details of my case that I did not remember. She uses her spectacular memory to her clients advantage. She was a pleasure to work with and was always willing to talk about every situation. She is very pragmatic and was always willing to hear my thoughts and work together with me to come up with a plan to gain the best outcome for my situation. She is an attorney that will fight to the very end for what its right.

Excellent divorce attorney
I would highly recommend Attorney Dubin. She is professional, knowledgeable, efficient and extremely responsive. As my divorce attorney, she ensured that I received the absolute best outcome, but in a very caring and understanding way. She made an incredibly difficult personal situation so much easier to handle. I would recommend her 100%.

Outstanding attorney
I hired Jessica Dubin as my lawyer for a divorce case. I found her to be the perfect attorney for me. She knows her stuff both legally and financially. Incredibly thorough; nothing lost in the cracks. Great intuition and problem solving skills. Kind but firm/tough. Worth every penny to come to resolution.

Hire Jess or lose to her
Jess is the consummate professional. She provides rare and unsurpassed legal competence. She guided me through a protracted divorce proceeding in which I was terribly outmatched from my prior attorney's abysmal performance. Not only was the case settled favorably but with speed and integrity. I consider my exceptionally fortunate to have been represented by Jess.

I highly recommend Jessica
I highly recommend Jessica. She is a top notch attorney. She and I worked together on my divorce case that took a full four years to resolve and went to trial and even the appeals process. Throughout this she demonstrated exceptional integrity. She is also one of the smartest people I know and can cut to the core of an issue very quickly. She get's the big picture but is also exceptionally detailed and never misses a thing. Additionally she is a genuinely nice and ethical person who always want's to do the right thing.

Highest recommendation for Jess Dubin
Jess handled my divorce proceedings with the highest degree of professionalism and empathy possible. I trust her implicitly. She is very straightforward, but is also able to deliver her opinions to you in a thoughtful and supportive way. She combines excellent strategic thinking with an amazing command of details. Jess is a very, very intelligent and capable lawyer.
