Can't Say Enough
This review took me far too long to write, but I wanted to take the time to give Attorney Kirshenbaum the proper review he deserves. I found and hired Attorney Evan Kirshenbaum for my spouse who was in a long court case with her ex-husband involving her two children. After losing one attorney to retirement, a new lawyer was hired. With a new judge not knowing the whole history of the case and a new lawyer, the case drastically turned in the wrong direction. The case was a complex one with a long history and it was clear that we needed a highly skilled lawyer with a different approach. When I called Attorney Kirshenbaum’s office we were in despair, it had been a long four years of hell in family court. Without going into too much detail, he really got the best outcome for the kids. We found him to be caring, extremely hard working, talented, tenacious, and a force to be reckoned with in court. We were facing a bully - the opposing attorney, who was no match for Evan. I also want to add that our case required last minute preparation after he had just taken the case. He prepared and got up to speed in one night on a four year case. The hearing was in court early the next morning. Evan, and I am pretty sure his staff, worked over night to prepare for the hearing in which he completely turned the case in our favor. We will forever be grateful for Evan and his staff who work tirelessly for their clients. We can’t say enough about Attorney Kirshenbaum and his entire office. I highly recommend Attorney Krishenbaum to anyone looking for a skilled and confident lawyer.

Complicated Divorce
My divorce was complicated by financial matters including a family business and several retirement accounts on both sides. In addition, we had several properties acquired during and before our marriage. Evan brought in financial experts to wade through the mess and with his expertise, the result was not only favorable for me but also much less complex than I expected. I could not be more pleased or recommend him more enthusiastically.

auto accident with injury
I was in a serious car accident several years ago. Evan was very reassuring and explained all legal issues in a way I could understand, He got an excellent result for me and I was very pleased. He is knowledgeable and confident and this gave me the ability to leave everything to him and know I would be well taken care of.
