I provide alternative legal services that most attorneys do not provide. Legal coaching is an affordable, cost effective approach to the traditional legal services model. I provide "pay as you go" legal advice and support so that everyone can feel comfortable in retaining an attorney.  

Whether you can afford an attorney or not, legal coaching may be attractive to you because you are either budget conscious or have limited financial resources. Maybe you believe you can do a lot of the work yourself and just need some guidance.  Nevertheless, I take you step by step and walk you through the process. You pay for what you need. And if you decide somewhere down the road that you want me to take over your case, we can discuss that option as well. I believe everyone should have options when hiring legal counsel. It's stressful enough when facing divorce let alone the thought of hiring a lawyer.

Could not have done it without her
While Linda has a plethora of outstanding strengths, I valued Linda’s patience and her ability to keep me grounded and big picture based. Linda understands the intricacies and varying stages of emotions that accompany anyone who has a marriage that is ending. Linda was able to appropriately determine the best way to guide me at each phase of process. Linda approached every interaction professionally and with a prompt and consise communication style. While I would have preferred not have have needed Linda’s services, I could not have made a better choice in retaining Linda to represent me.

She is the BEST
My attorney Linda was fabulas. She did an outstanding job for me. I'm impressed with how she never lost hope and faith in the my case or the outcome. I could call her and email her and always got a response. I will be forever grateful for her and her services and her kindness.

Exceptional
After 28 months and two lawyers representing me in a complex divorce, Linda, as my third lawyer, finally settled my case in nineteen days. She is nothing but hard working, compassionate, ethical and smart. I had more communication with Linda than either of my past two lawyers combined. She really cared about bringing my divorce to a close after so little being accomplished after so much time. She was empathetic and at the same time worked us through all the details that had to be handled. She explained all legal aspects to me and her reasoning always made sense. She is incredibly skilled and experienced. As indicated here but I have to say again- Linda TRULY CARES about her clients and cases. She will go all out for you to get you your best deal. Thanks to Linda, I can finally move on and feel at peace.

Best Divorce Attorney
Linda is an incredible divorce attorney. She educated me with options every step of the way and steered me to one that led to the best outcomes. When she sensed I was in distress, she responded to my texts and took my calls on odd hours and weekends, helping me through me through those stressful times. While she cared for the emotional side of the matter, her conversations allowed for me to see things objectively and make tough decisions needed at the time. She is extremely professional and service her clients like no large fancy law firms ever can. She is honest, direct, smart, intelligent and very detailed oriented, combined with her years of experience and knowledge she has this unique ability to think two steps ahead and counter arguments that yields favorable responses. All in all, She helped me “win” in a very complex yearlong battle with my ex and save me well in six figures. I have since relocated to another state and I still call her for coaching and guidance on legal matters. Anyone getting into divorce, look no further and retain Linda for best representation you could get in any divorce matter.

Awesome
I Recently had the privilege of working with Attorney Linda Subbloie. I have never hired an attorney before and I must say that Linda made my experience with judicial system one of great ease. I found Linda to be extremely professional, knowledgeable , conscientious and attentive. But more importantly I found her to be friendly, honest, genuine , caring, compassionate, easily accessible and a pleasure to work with. She prepared and informed me of everything to expect during the entire time we worked together and also on my court date. I always felt “ She had my back” and was looking out for my best. I found a great attorney but I feel I also found a friend !! Thank and you Linda ..... your the best !!!

True Practitioner
When hiring an attorney for a family case you need someone whom you can trust, will work hard and knows the law! The latter might seem obvious, but don't be fooled.. in any profession there are plenty that talk more than they practice. Attorney Linda Subbloie was the consummate lawyer for my divorce case. Her initial intention was to get it done as quickly as possible, which was in my best interest. However when we experienced prolonged delays from the other side she didn't stop working, coming up with innovative ways to push the case along. My divorce was very emotional and there were periods where I just didn't want to deal with it and during those times Linda knew how to kick me in the backside just enough to keep me focused. And eventually Linda proposed, and sold to the other side, a mediation solution that worked very well for me. Success is in the details, and in law details take time, focus and hard work. Linda gave me all of that and the guidance, counsel and trust I needed to see a very emotional situation through to it's conclusion. Attorney Linda Subbloie is a seasoned 30 year professional. From my experience I can highly recommend her for family matters.

Testimonial
Testimonial When I first met Linda my sky was falling. I was lost, hurt and confused. She guided me through an incredibly difficult time. But ask yourself “what is an enduring impact?” Is it professionalism, compassion, empathy and when is it measured? I believe that the impact is not truly appreciated in the moment but years later. Recently, after 5 years, I emailed Linda for help. I was lost again and confused; the situation was tough and I wasn’t feeling well because of it. Linda returned an email that same day. My heart was uplifted, almost immediately I started feeling better just knowing that she was standing strong for me gave me strength. The enduring impact was realized and felt at that moment. When I needed someone the most she stepped up and said “I’m here!” The first and most important thing that you can do is hire Linda as your attorney. Stay focused, concentrate on your kids and be true to yourself because that is the confidence you will have with Linda advocating for you. Todd, Wilton, CT

Trustworthy, Ethical, Honest and Results-Oriented
As someone with a lot of student loans and just finishing with graduate school, I do not have a lot of expendable income, but wanted to ensure my rights were proteced during my divorce. Not only that, but as I did a "DIY divorce," I needed a lot of help navigating the legal system. I was not able to afford retaining a lawyer to do my full divorce, but needed a trusted ally and someone with an expert knowledge of the law. From my first meeting with Attorney Subbloie, she demonstrated great empathy, responsiveness, and knowledge of what my rights were. My divorce was a straight-forward financial separation, but my ex made it very difficult nearly every week trying to drag out the process on shared assets and trying to make up the rules. Attorney Subbloie talked me off the ledge several times when the drama would ensue always making me aware of my rights and continuing to coach me through what the best steps to take would be. Although it took five months from the day the papers were served until the final divorce judgement, I am very, very happy with Linda's legal coaching, professionalism, and care and am taking the time to review her here today because I cannot recommend her enough to someone with the financial constraints and situation that I had.

Would hire with out a doubt
I had a brief over the phone interaction with Linda not regarding myself/a need for me and in the 10 min conversation on the phone I knew if I ever needed a divorce lawyer (fingers crossed I never will), I would hire Linda with out batting an eye. She was very personable which I think is important for anyone going thru a divorce to require. So when in need HIRE LINDA!!!

A true advocate
The decision to seek a dissolution of my marriage was a painful and emotional one. From the moment I spoke to Attorney Linda Subbloie on the phone, and subsequently at our first meeting, I felt like I had an advocate who understood my pain, would guide me through this difficult process, and support me emotionally. When I was sad, overwhelmed, and frustrated, she helped me realize when emotionalism was clouding my judgement, helping me to make clear, rational decisions. She was excellent at keeping me informed and representing my interests. Knowing that my finances were fragile, she kept that in mind, when making motions. There were no frivolous motions, for the sake of posturing, like we had seen from the other side. Linda made me laugh when I needed it, and gave me strength to endure a process that my ex-spouse tried to drag out far, too long. I was very grateful to have her counsel and expertise, and would readily recommend her.

Excellent Representation
Choosing a divorce attorney is such an important decision. Very few friends and acquaintances were reluctant to recommend their own divorce attorneys to me. I had met with a few attorneys but once I spoke with Linda Subbloie on the phone, I knew I wanted to hire her. Meeting her in person to discuss more of the details and my concerns gave me even more assurance. She was very easy to talk to and gave me very practical and appropriate counsel, even making sure I was ready to move forward emotionally and otherwise. She handled all of my concerns with experience, knowledge of the legal system, professionalism, and a perfect touch of compassionate understanding. She consulted with and referred me to an excellent tax professional to address some of the intricacies of my case, providing me with the additional security I needed moving ahead with my divorce. She represented my interests well and gave appropriate advice to me to avoid needless conflicts with the other party. Linda is very skilled at negotiating. She gained respect from my ex and his attorney as well. Divorce is a very stressful time for all concerned, but Linda's sense of humor, her reassuring knowledge of the legal system, and her professional advice and representation made all the difference in my settlement.

Smart, Stategic, & Compassionate
Divorce is a messy. You are expected to make rational decisions while riding a roller coaster of extreme emotions. I am glad I had Linda with me for the ride! Her legal expertise and experience made me feel confident that things would be fine. She kept me focused. Linda fights for the best result for her client (me) and not just a satisfactory outcome. She is feisty, funny and I can't imagine going through that whole messy ordeal without her!

Excellent Attorney! - Knowledgeable, Compassionate and Attentive
I consulted with Linda nine months prior to retaining her as my divorce attorney. At the time I was just trying to educate myself on the divorce process while deciding if I could actually go through with it. I was scared, unsure, and I didn’t have a clue as to what I was doing. When we sat down together, I instantly realized that she was more than an attorney. She felt like a friend, an ally and a therapist. She offered great advice which was sound and objective. At no time did I feel any pressure to hire her. Although I left her office still unsure as to what to do, she gave me some great things to think on and consider. I remember thinking, if I do go forward with the divorce; I am definitely going to hire Linda. Nine months later when I decided to proceed with the divorce, I called Linda and we immediately got started. She guided me through the process, explained what was ahead, and helped me avoid major pitfalls. She always made time to speak with me and promptly returned all my calls and e-mails. Linda has the perfect combination of being tough but very reasonable; she instinctively knows which battles to pick and which ones to leave alone. Her judgement and knowledge allowed for a very efficient divorce, one which avoided a costly trial and excessive legal fees. As of this week I am now divorced and I am thrilled to have worked with Linda. Her compassion for her client and deep understanding of the emotional toll divorce takes has made all the difference. I hope I never need another divorce attorney again, but if I do, without a doubt I will be calling Linda Subbloie.

Excellent With the Legal Process AND Emotional Support
The decision to go through with a divorce is never one taken lightly and is very difficult to initiate. Linda knows this through personal experience and from the moment I sat down in her office at my initial consultation I felt like I finally had an ally. When I arrived I was nervous, scared, uninformed, and vulnerable. I left empowered. From start to finish (and now even through post-judgment processes) Linda has informed me, educated me, enlightened me, and most importantly- comforted me. That is what I am most thankful for- to be given peace of mind when I had lost mine. In addition to being a great personal advocate, Linda is an intense lawyer. She facilitated my judgment professionally and fiercely. My outcome was more than satisfactory thanks to her great knowledge of law and creative “thinking outside the box” approach when it was necessary to enlist other professionals who congruently helped us arrive at the best possible outcome. Linda certainly made the most difficult phase of my life manageable. She truly is fantastic all around!

Great Attorney, Highly Recommended
Linda was my attorney through a very contentious divorce. She is very knowledgeable and experienced concerning divorce law. Her ability to stay on course for me during this very tumultous time in my life was essential. It's just as important to have an attorney who not only is very competent during the entire legal process, but one that helps ease the stress during the divorce process. I am very satisfied with all aspects of Linda's representation.

Highly recommend
Having seen others go through the process of divorce, I knew that choosing a Divorce Attorney would be one of the most important decisions that I would make. I wanted someone with not just the experience, but the temperament and focus to provide the best possible outcome for myself and my children. Choosing Linda as my attorney was the best decision I could have made, and a decision I never once doubted over the entire 11 month process. Linda provided guidance and advice every step of the way, helping to explain the process and to adjust my expectations when needed. Linda’s advice was always tuned to “the big picture”. There were times when I wanted to go in a direction because I felt “I was right”, and Linda was always there to remind me that sometimes it was better to let something go. That type of advice ended up not only speeding up the process, and resulting in a better outcome, but also lowered the total costs associated with my divorce. Linda’s keen focus on details and insight into the legal process (and people) were a huge asset. My ex-spouse went through two attorneys during the divorce and I watched Linda run circles around both of them. Linda seemed to have every detail in memory, able to identify and respond to inconsistencies whenever required. Never coming across as argumentative, Linda would instead look for common ground, something to agree on, and to get one step closer to a final agreement. That being said, Linda would respond forcefully when needed, ready to protect my interests. A final agreement was reached late on a Friday after much back and forth. I had actually given up for the week, with the trial date only two weeks away. Linda called me late on that Friday to discuss the last proposal from my ex-spouses attorney. Linda knew how close we were to an agreement, and the agreement was very favorable to me. Going to trial would have not only put everything back on the table, with a judge making decisions, but preparing for the trial would be costly. We were able to get a final agreement that night. Linda even met me in the parking lot of a Dunkin Doughnuts that same evening to get my signature on the agreement. Choosing Linda as my attorney was, without any reservation, the best decision I could have made. Linda was very supportive during the process and very patient with my many questions. Time and time again, I saw how her advice was proven to be sound advice. The end result was a fair agreement for me and my children, and a sometimes painful process that was brought to a resolution as quickly as it was possible. I would highly recommend Attorney Linda Subbloie to any person who finds themselves in need of the very best divorce attorney they can get.

Trustworthy and Knowledgeable
Linda Subbloie is a wonderful attorney. She is down-to-earth, a real go-getter and just fantastic at what she does. Getting a divorce is pretty emotional, especially when children are involved. Linda walked me through the whole process and helped me see what was in the best interest for myself and my children. She has a no nonsense approach that is endearing and dependable in such emotional times. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking an attorney.

Finding a helpful lawyer....
Most of us who have to seek a lawyer for representation feel very alone, unsure of the future and need someone who is understanding of their situation, who will listen to them and give them good, sound advice. It is a very stressful time in a persons life. I know that's how I felt when I reached out to Linda after following a friends strong recommendation to contact her. I had been trying for over a year to obtain a divorce from my now ex, who was an abusive drug addict, who despite restraining orders, still terrified me. What I found in Linda was a friend, someone who cared about what I was going through with a vast knowledge of the law to guide me. Anytime I needed her, she was always there for me, ready and willing to "hold my hand". When the day of my divorce finally arrived, even though my stomach was doing flip-flops, Linda had me laughing before I got on the stand and calmed all my fears about having to face him again. If you need a lawyer who is compassionate and will give you one-on-one attention, who is extremely thorough to detail and understands the law, then I highly recommend that you contact Linda.
