Got me everything I wanted
Wyckoff is a a true gem and a no nonsense kind of lawyer. When I say no nonsense, I say that as his client and watching how he handled the opposing side. There were several times where he helped me dial back my emotions and regain focus on the facts. Everything he does stems from a very conservative and realistic approach. Trust his process and tell him every possible thing he needs to know and you'll most likely come out the other side getting what he tells you to expect. In my case, I was hoping to achieve 4 outcomes and in some shape or form, I got everything I wanted. He is also incredibly responsive with ne'er a day where i didn't hear back in under 24 hours. In short, if you're going to hire a lawyer, you better hope you're on the same side of the table as Wyckoff.

Ghosted by previous landlord, but the issue was resolved quickly
I thought I had a good rapport with my landlord after many years of renting but I ended up having to move because the property was being sold for land. I was fine with this and thought I'd had a verbal agreement for the return of my deposit. Instead, the landlord ghosted me even after I inquired by email about it. I contacted Attorney Nissenbaum and explained the situation, sending him all the documents he requested. After he sent one letter to the landlord stating our position an offer of resolution came within a few days. The result was in my favor. I'm very happy to put this situation behind me and I couldn't have done it without Attorney Nissenbaum's help. I would highly recommend him to anyone in this situation and I will call on him again if other legal matters arise. Thank you.

Best Divorce Attorney
After trying to divorce my ex-husband for almost 4 year of back and forth, I finally got in contact with Mr. Nissenbaum. I was referred to him by a friend. I was desperate at the time. As soon as I got on the phone with him, he made me feel at ease. Just what I needed at the time. My court date was literally 3 weeks from the moment I reached out to him and he went to work right away. Thanks to him I am now divorced and It took less than 2 months. I do not know what I would off done without him. He was God sent. I have no words to express my gratitude. I have recommend it to him to all my friends and family and will continue to do so.

Wycoff has been a blessing for me and my daughter!
Wycoff was there for me at a difficult time when my daughter was young. My ex-wife was trying to move her out of state and in court documents, painted a picture of me that was entirely inaccurate. I didn't know where to turn for legal help. It was so intimidating. Someone gave me a list of legal resources. Thankfully, Wycoff's office was first on the list. I've never had to call anyone else. My daughter is older now, and I have physical custody. I wouldn't have been able to get to this point without Wycoff. He has been a consistent source of help and support. He promptly returns calls and emails, and always takes his time when helping me to understand legal processes and language. If, like me, you lack the resources for legal representation in court, Wycoff will help you prepare the proper court documents and give you exactly what you need, so that you can feel confident when your day in court comes. I've heard painful stories from fathers who didn't receive good legal counsel and, as a result, they didn't get favorable visitation. I can honestly say that, for me and my family, finding Wycoff was a blessing.

Family Law
Wyckoff was a lawyer to help me in my family law case. He was clear and concise and always made sure I understand the information that was shared with me. He took the time to walk me through all the timeline, procedures and information needed to help me in my case. He was also very good at making the best use of my time and not to spend time going off topic, saving both our time and un-necessary billing. I would recommend and work with Wyckoff again.

Very Responsive!
I worked with Wyckoff over the past month on some legal documents I needed help with. Throughout each interaction and revision of the documents it was clear that Wyckoff was very experienced, professional, patient in answering my questions, and worked efficiently to update all revisions we needed to make on the docs, even if it was after typical work hours. His rates were also very reasonable. I would work with Wyckoff again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.

I trust Wyckoff Blindly
I hired Wyckoff to assist me with my divorce case. He immediately discussed with me my options and the likelihood of success. After understanding my rights and obligations, I informed Wyckoff of my goals. He was able to convince the other side of a non traditional agreement that met my financial and custody goals. The agreement was approved by the Court without question and I paid very reasonable legal fees. If you need to get divorced, hire Wyckoff.

Knowledgeable and caring expert advice on Massachusetts Family legal matters!
Attorney Nissembaum represented me in court three times and in every single occasion the judge ruled in my favor. In addition, I have relied on his legal advice for regular consultations regarding both alimony and child support payments, He possesses an impressive knowledge of family law and his emphasis is on the well being of each family member. His case preparation is very thoughtful and carefully orchestrated. Finally, Attorney Nissembaum's rates are very reasonable and highly competitive.

Excellent family and divorce lawyer
Atty. Nissenbaum guided me through the legal process of extending my visitation with my child. He offered very clear and straightforward advice. Under his expert representation, I was able to accomplish my legal goals. In addition to his professionalism, I also appreciate how supportive and personable he is.

Consultation and guidance
I came to Wyckoff Nissenbaum already with an agreement-in-theory with my ex-wife about the terms of divorce, but the first draft my wife's lawyer had created had some issues. Wyckoff helped me identify additional problems, suggested solutions to the problems, and helped me create draft #2 which ultimately my wife accepted. Then Alyssa guided me through my day in court. I did a lot of the work myself and needed a lot less than the typical divorce client, but what I needed, they provided in high quality at a reasonable price.

Inspired confidence
For several reasons I was totally at a loss as to how to proceed when I was served with divorce papers. I could not get any responses from lawyers until I contacted Wyckoff. He met with me, explained to me my options and we decided on a way to proceed. I found Wyckoff to be very knowlegable and easy to talk to and this gave me confidence and a feeling of relief during this difficult process. He was prompt with communications and reliable with court appearances. My wife and I did reach a settlèment that I was satisfied with and Wyckoff was instrumental in getting this done.
