I Highly Recommend Jeffrey Ginzberg
Attorney Ginzberg picked up my case in the late rounds of my divorce. He did a phenomenal job with helping to focus on what was truly important and went to battle for me. I was able to finally emerge in a much better position after having hired Ginzberg. He was very accessible and worked hard to learn all the facets of my case (and I didn't have to remind him of anything at any point). He is a truly great attorney and deserves every star.

Review for Jeffrey Ginzberg
I recently went through a somewhat difficult divorce and Attorney Jeffrey Ginzberg represented me. I can not express how grateful I am to have found Atty. Ginzberg, and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a family/divorce attorney. Atty. Ginzberg was very compassionate and he fought to get me the best possible outcome in my case. He truly went above and beyond to help me throughout my entire divorce process, and with post-divorce follow ups. He was extremely honest and reliable, and an overall outstanding attorney. There is nobody else I would rather have representing me if I was ever in need of hiring an attorney again in the future.

Outstanding Divorce Lawyer
I strongly recommend Jeff Ginzberg in any family law case. Jeff came highly recommended, and rightfully so. I found him to be knowledgeable, thorough and extremely hard working. His office is the same, with particular thanks to Kristi for her hard work in assisting Jeff on my case. Jeff was prompt and diligent in responding to questions I had about my case and the next steps in the sometimes tedious process. I am an attorney but practice in other areas of law, so divorce law was new to me. Jeff took the time to explain his recommended strategy, and to ensure that I was on board with the approach. My case was hotly contested with opposing counsel doing everything it could to maximize billing on the pettiest of issues. Jeff remained firm and focused on the big picture of a fair distribution of income and assets to both sides. Jeff was a passionate and well-spoken advocate of my case both in negotiation with opposing counsel and during trial. With trial now over, I see that Jeff’s strategy with my case was the right approach. Jeff had keen insight into how the court would see the issues, and I am confident his “take the high road” approach will be adopted by the court.

Happy With My Stellar Attorney!
Attorney Ginzberg has an uncanny ability to read through a tall stack of papers and explain what is crucially important. His foresight and guidance kept me from a decision that would have tragically affected my life. Very happy! Carolee

Divorce Attorney
Attorney Ginzberg is exactly what you need for an attorney when you’re going through a divorce. He was empathetic, very much to the point and got everything done quickly. I went through to other attorneys before him that took my money and got nothing done. For this, I highly recommend Jeffrey Ginzberg.

Highest recommendation goes to Attorney Ginzberg
Attorney Ginzberg provided me with legal representation that surpassed all my expectations. In addition to being kind and compassionate, he is fierce on the battlefield. He demonstrated the breadth of his legal expertise and knowledge in a particularly complex divorce case. Mr. Ginzberg has an exceptionally strong eye for detail. His explanation of the legal process was clear and understandable to a layperson. He adequately prepared me for my deposition to prevent me from becoming flustered in a setting where opposing counsel posed seemingly confrontational questions at a rapid-fire pace. He also has a very calm demeanor that was a blessing for clients in and out of the courtroom. His credentials are impeccable, and his professional training and expertise are evident in his interaction with other lawyers, paralegals, and courthouse staff. My highest recommendation goes to Mr. Ginzberg if you are looking for legal representation.

Excellent
Attorney Ginzberg picked up my case mid way through the divorce. I switched after seeking a second opinion. Attorney Ginzberg listened and provided realistic interpretation. I felt that he was in my corner. He was focused, persistent but also flexible. He provided feedback and recommendations where appropriate. We were able to achieve our goals. Divorce is not easy and I am glad I had someone like him guiding me through it.

A great attorney to have on your side
Jeff Ginzberg has been by my side throughout the lifecycle of my divorce. He has helped guide and defend me throughout all the difficulties, hard decisions and life changes over the past 13 years. It has been a long, emotional period full of stressful events which I would never have been able to navigate without his expertise and professional guidance. Throughout, he has always remained calm, attentive, and reasonable. I highly recommend Jeff Ginzberg to anyone who is going through a divorce or separation.

excellent attorney to assist with a divorce
In the chaos and sea of emotions that divorce can bring Attorney Ginzberg is a calm, reasonable voice. Jeff Ginzberg recently helped me through a difficult and complicated divorce. He was always attentive and understood that maintaining a safe consistent environment for the children was my priority. Attorney Ginzberg returned calls and emails in a timely manner, was extremely knowledgeable and I could tell from our many conversations was not only a great lawyer but a good person as well. Divorce is not a situation that one wants to find themselves in, but Attorney Ginzberg made a painful situation manageable. If you find yourself with similar life changing events, you can be assured that Attorney Ginzberg can help.

Effective and kind in our uncontested divorce proceedings
I hope I never need a divorce attorney again :) but if I did, Jeff would be my guy. He's a compassionate person with deep expertise. You'll be in good hands if you work with him. I was appreciative that he never tried to make my uncontested, amicable case more complicated than it needed to be, but he made sure we understood at every stage what our rights were and what we were giving up if we waived them. (Kids make a CT divorce somewhat complicated no matter what.) He collaborated with me in creating unique custody and financial agreements my now former spouse and I are both happy with, that are as fair as any of us could make them. And with the former spouse & I both being absentminded professors, we were also glad Jeff and his partner Kristi kept the ball rolling when we kept dropping it. They made sure we reached our goal of being divorced before the end of the year, which means our tax savings will cover much of the cost of the divorce. Thank you, Jeff and Kristi, we're grateful for your help in moving forward gracefully and with dignity to the next chapter of our lives.

Great lawyer and person
I recommend Jeff completely. He mentored me throughout this journey allowing me to add input on my goals for a fair and equitable outcome. He is a teacher, a fighter, a defender and a protector. He believes that everyone needs to win something in a negotiation, while maintaining the financial and emotional needs of his client. Thank you Jeff for guiding me through this process with a firm trajectory and the balance needed to ensure the integration of the family unit.

Child Custody
I would highly recommend Attorney Ginzberg for any custody or family issues. He was outstanding throughout my interaction with him. My case was very complex and highly contested. He was engaged, passionate, and extremely detailed orientated. His knowledge of each tiny detail of the law is second to none. Throughout my entire case he never lost sight of the big picture. As all the small issues that were thrown at us, he very promptly and thoroughly handled them all while continuing to pave the road to the best end result. He advised me of all the pros and cons through each stage of the process. I will be using him again very very soon!!

Jeff is one of the best for family law !
Jeff had represented my doctor in his divorce which included a contentious custody battle and high net worth. My doctor was extremely pleased with the results that Jeff was able to achieve and found Jeff to be a caring person throughout the process. I decided to look into switching attorneys just before my trial and consulted with Jeff. Jeff was already booked out on a few other extremely arduous, contentious trials at the same time, but he told me that normally he could get up to speed fairly quickly. During my consultation with Jeff, I found him to be extremely knowledgeable and had creative suggestions to my issues and it was evident that he wouldn't just take your money and sit back, but would really fight for you and your children's cause.

The Best
I enthusiastically endorse the services of Attorney Ginzberg. He came highly recommended and we quickly found out why. We engaged his services last minute for an inordinately complex and contentious trial. Attorney Ginzberg rose to the task. He rolled up his sleeves immediately and was up to speed literally overnight. He came to our home when it was difficult for us to meet elsewhere. He worked around the clock, pouring over and committing to memory hundreds if not thousands of pages of evidence. Attorney Ginzberg is an outstanding strategist and litigator. He had a vision and he did not falter. He fought tooth and nail in court throughout every minute of an extremely long and emotionally wrenching trial. We trusted our attorney every step of the way. Attorney Ginzberg was a man of his word. He was responsive, frank and forthcoming in all our dealings with him. He did not sugarcoat. He listened and his work reflected it. His expertise and his dedication to our case far exceeded any legal service we had experienced (or even heard of). The outcome was a 'slam dunk' victory. Finding and engaging Attorney Ginzberg was a blessing for our family that will thankfully resonate long into the future. Everyone that knows him or of him says the same thing we do: Attorney Ginzberg is the best.

Excellent Attorney
Jeff has represented me on two different cases over the past 10 years both resulting in decisions that far exceeded expectations. He dissected the very complicated issues surround each case and was able to keep the court and his client focused on the topics relevant to successful litigation. Jeff developed a strategy to win and executed that plan with precision. He has been recognized as one on the best attorneys in Connecticut and justifiably so.

Steady, ethical and effective
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the staff and Kristi at this law office. There are many busy beavers at work to help this wonderful attorney get his job done. While divorce is never pleasant, Jeff took a tough stance as my true advocate and legal counsel in this most difficult and trying time. He never charged me, was always diligent and helped navigate and obtain what was rightfully mine. He put a stop to my being victimized by my ex-husband and played hard ball as necessary. Jeff is both very detail oriented and an ethical man. I also found Jeff to be very steady and compassionate. I certainly had and still have my ups and downs (still trying to settle this case) but, Jeff manages to keep on track and moves progressively to get the job done. I felt as if I was in an impossible situation at times and Jeff with his focused and capable skills saw me through with the desired results! Thank you Jeff!
