Fantastic lawyer!!
I was unsure of how to start my divorce process and had been trying on my own for a while. Lisa and Katherine were absolutely fantastic!! They listened to me without any judgment. I was traumatized from my marriage and scared to face my ex partner in court. I felt at ease instantly after talking with Lisa. She is a true professional in all ways!! She really knows what she’s doing, and honestly I’d probably still be married legally and struggling if I had not been pointed her in direction! Beyond grateful for her taking me on as a client!! If you’re looking for a fantastic divorce and family/child custody lawyer LOOK NO FURTHER!!

Grateful
I’m grateful to Lisa and her Associate, Katherine, for their professionalism, time, patience, effort, expertise, and calming style. I always felt heard and that my case mattered. This was the third law firm I hired and I would have saved time, energy, and money if I started with the best.

Outstanding Attorney & Thoughtful Confidant
Entering into a legal battle is never fun - navigating the court system and litigation often exacerbates the most trying moments of our lives. I certainly know that when I reached out to Lisa, I was lost and in an incredibly difficult place. Thank goodness Lisa is the consummate professional. Both an outstanding and insightful attorney, and also a thoughtful and empathetic partner. When we find ourselves at the most trying moments, it's encouraging to know there are people like Lisa we can depend on - I cannot praise her enough.

I had in my opinion very complicated case and was desperate to find great divorce attorney. I was fighting for my "life" and my future. I got extremely lucky to find Lisa Zuckerman. She provided great emotional and professional support. My ex spouse attorney was good and Lisa was facing some challenges. But her expertise, professionalism, divorce law knowledge and experience took over the situation and resulted in desired outcome. Her reputation is amazing. She guided me through divorce almost 2 years, making a progress every step on the way. And I knew that I was in good hands. She is what divorce lawyer needs to be. Thank you, Lisa. You are my guardian Angel:)

A lawyer and an amazing emotional support!
Like many, I was in a very difficult relationship that I made a decision to leave. My focus—and Lisa’s— was on how to protect and support my young daughter legally and emotionally. Lisa was strong, but not contentious; she was creative about solutions to help me and my daughter, not just to win a case against opposing counsel. I have referred many of my clients to her and I will co to us to do so without hesitation. I continue to be grateful for the chance I had to meet her and work with her. My best to you, Lisa!

Got the job done
I was going through a very tough time. Just had my little girl from an abusive relationship and needed to keep her father away. Lisa helped draft a contract that would limit her fathers visitation and ensure that it was supervised. I didn't want child support but she told me it was unlikely that the judge would allow for that so we put a small amount down in the contract. She came and sat with me when it was our day in court. She was very encouraging on this very difficult day. The only part of the agreement the judge didn't like was how little child support we were asking for. He asked us to revise with a more appropriate child support amount and come back. We did this (same day) and the contract was recorded! I wouldnt hesitate to recommend her to others and am happy I no longer need her services!

Excellent representation
We had a nasty child support modification with the other side lying, concealing income and being pointless and childish. Atty. Zuckerman remained calm and effective throughout all their games. She did not let them get away with their deceit, and she was always truthful with me about the realities of the case to avoid getting my hopes unrealistically high. Koren and Lisa both were very responsive. Now the other side is back to try and modify the visitation schedule so I'm back to Atty Zuckerman to straighten this next issue.

Best Decison
The best decision I made during the most difficult time in my life was to have Lisa represent me. I trusted Lisa instantly because she asked great questions, listened attentively to the answers, was open, honest and approachable. She gave me realistic results, not what I wanted to hear. Without Lisa’s knowledge and expertise I would have continued to fall victim to my ex-husband. She was a strong advocate for what was best for my daughter and me. When I felt put on the spot to make a decision, Lisa was right there to pull me aside and help me understand my options. I would not be where I am today without her.

Happy Atty Zuckerman was on my side
I would strongly recommend Lisa as she help me gain full custody of my son. She took a situation that was extremely stressful for me and make me feel that everything would all work out. She gave me realistic results, not what I wanted to hear. I am very grateful that Lisa was with me during this time.

Great attitude and great results.
After meeting a few too many questionable lawyers, I met Lisa when I was just about to give up. She listened, was calm and gave me positive feedback that provided me with a good end result. Lisa has provided support when needed, and guidance through the court process. She does not get intimidated, and is very knowledgeable of the laws, giving you the confidence to face whatever challenge in court. Because you know, you have one of the best lawyers in your corner fighting for you.

Responsive and Compassionate Attorney
Lisa handled my divorce after 13 years of marriage. She was very helpful during a difficult time in my life. She, not only negotiated a good deal with my ex that made sure my children and I could live comfortably and securely, she also tried to help me with some of the financial problems that arose from my divorce. She went above and beyond what I would have expected an attorney to do. I am truly grateful for the time she took to find the best solution for us, given the circumstances.

Great Lawyer who gets everything done in no time!
called when I needed them and they were there on time. They were patient and walked me through the whole thing. They did what they needed to do for my case. They were very helpful. They would call me to make sure whether or not I had any questions. They were available when I needed them. They gave me enough time to discuss my case and didn't rush me. When you go to them for help and you know they are there for you, and what you need is what you get. When I went to court, both of them supported me. They went through the steps of what I needed to do and I was very comfortable with them. The tension was all gone when they took my case. I would definitely recommend them to anybody because they were quick and efficient.

Great lawyer
Lisa is the best lawyer I have ever worked with. She thorough, thoughtful and knowledgeable. She researches anything she doesn't know. She is tough when she has to be. She returns calls promptly. I would recommend her to anyone.

You won't find a better Lawyer
I hired Lisa Zuckerman when I was going through the worst experience of my life, a divorce. She provided me with excellent legal advise that saw me through it all. Her skills helped keep the foolishness that all to often comes up in a divorce to a minimum. She was always available to provide answers and suggestions that were needed to keep things in perspective. You would be hard pressed to find a better lawyer to provide you with clear, concise, and professional advise.

Got divorce but ...
Based on the reviews others seems to have better luck ... but I cannot leave a 5 star because of over all experience. I got the divorce so without major incident so not bad either but after paying $5000 for a simple uncontested divorce, you would think someone from her office would respond - if one has some final questions after divorce. I had a simple uncontested divorce, for some reason Lisa was also not able to make it for one and only hearing :( ... I felt unprepared and let down but was able to get the divorce - Koren Lisa's assistant was nice to walk me though the process. I got divorce so all good I guess :)

Divorce and separation Attorney | Apr 21
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer."
Family Attorney | Nov 18
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Lisa represented the father in the final stages of a highly contested custody and child support dispute. When she entered the case, it had been in court nearly five years. Soon after Lisa entered the case, we were able to help the parents enter into an agreement that the judge praised as being "thorough and carefully thought out." I truly believe that without Lisa, the case would still be ongoing. Her professionalism and advocacy for her client made all the difference the case needed, and I wholeheartedly endorse her."
