Very satisfied
Jill is Smart, high level and stays on track. She is not in the fray and does not pit spouses against each other to pay her rent, she just wants to get the job done. I would recommend Jill.

Strong and Powerful
Jill represented me on a case in 2010 and again with my divorce in 2020. The 2020 divorce began with me asking Jill for guidance given my suspicions of infidelity on behalf of my then husband. Jill advised me to hire a private investigator whom she had worked with in prior cases. The details from that investigation led to my then husbands admissions of infidelity in a deposition, all in a quick two month time period. Jill pushed me when I needed to be pushed, and guided me on how to live my life with my ex during the divorce process and then the subsequent pandemic. I needed someone strong and powerful on my team to fight for my future and the future of my two small boys. We are now on the other side of the divorce and I was able to move to another state and have the parenting schedule that worked best for my boys. I would recommend Jill and team to anyone - whether they have questions on "what if" or have a "simple" divorce, or extremely complicated, as mine was. You want Jill on your team!

Client
I met Jill about three years ago and hired her to represent me in a very painful divorce. There are almost no words to describe this experience- in the midst of a sad, horrible, and surprising divorce, Jill was a godsend. She is patient, very smart, kind hearted, very honest, and most important, she is an incredible lawyer. Throughout my process, which did include multiple hearings, and a trial, Jill was a voice of reason and a constant source of help and comfort to me. Jill was never unreachable- on holidays and her own personal days, she was never unavailable. She was truly committed to helping me every step of the way. Jill is excellent at complex financial matters and custody situations. On top of that, the entire staff at Schoonmaker, George, & Blomberg operates as a unit and this contributes to the excellent work and legal counsel Jill provides. Jill Blomberg did a tremendous job representing me. During the saddest days of my life, she worked tirelessly for me and I will be grateful forever.

Simply put, Jill was the perfect attorney for me. She is inherently brilliant and has a razor-sharp focus which enables her to hone in on the big picture immediately. She helped enlighten me in terms of what were realistic expectations. She recognized that time was of the essence in my particular case and more than delivered in finalizing my divorce as soon as possible. She is a savvy negotiator and nothing escapes her attention. Jill also has a special talent in that she is tough when it is called for, will fight and advocate for you every step of the way, but her gift is that she possesses genuine compassion as well. She truly cared about me, my particular circumstances and helped me successfully navigate one of the most challenging periods of my life. I can not recommend Jill highly enough. She is the consummate professional and always at the top of her game. It is also worth mentioning, that everyone at SG&B is equally professional and attentive as well. The turnaround time when replying to me was practically immediate. Anyone going through a divorce should only be as fortunate to have Jill represent them.

Prenuptial agreement case
Jill did an outstanding job on my case . Her command of the subject was excellent and she approached the case strategically and was very effective. She put the client's best interest ahead of her own economic interest. I highly recommend her.

Jill Blomberg
Jill was not only extremely competent, but she was also compassionate. She was entirely in command of the facts and always attentive. She was very responsive and always available. She was collaborative and open. I always felt very confident that Jill represented me - I knew I was in the best hands. She over-delivered on my expectations, but was gracious with the other side. I trusted Jill and knew she was absolutely the right choice for my representation. I have already recommended her and will continue to do so.

Super-Lawyer!
I would recommend Ms. Blomberg to anyone seeking assistance with any matter concerning family law. She has a thorough and impressive understanding of the most complex legal issues and how to move forward in her client's best interest. In addition, Ms. Blomberg has managed to figure out how to be both supportive and sympathetic towards her client during what is potentially one of the most stressful and difficult moments in their life. Knowledgeable and professional, savvy and razor-sharp, Ms. Blomberg easily takes command of any situation and simply out performs everyone else. I highly endorse her fine work as an attorney and would not hesitate to make the decision to hire her, particularly if your situation is a challenging one.
