Peace Through the Storm
Sylvia not only provided great and timely services, but she brought me and my family a huge peace of mind through the process of my divorce. The divorce process alone is a very difficult time for all, and she made sure to ease the entire daunting process by taking it all and handling it very professionally and effectively. She made sure to secure my future and she did it all with a positive and friendly attitude. I would highly recommend Sylvia to anyone. She was wonderful and I am eternally grateful for her services.

Sylvia is an excellent attorney who cuts through the fat and is a true advocate for her clients. It was clear that she not only wanted to take my case but that she also cared about it

Excellent and personal attorney!
We are so impressed with Attorney Sylvia Onyejekwe! She handled our case with impeccable attention to detail and incredible focus. She made us feel like we were her only clients and was always responsive, compassionate and ahead of schedule. She has exceptional command of the law and all of the statutes and precedents for a wide range of cases. We recommend her highly and would use her again if another case came up!

the best ive seen and heard
She took the time to listen to what i had to say and put it on paper the correct way using legal terminology and using the laws in my motion papers. She did such a good job with my papers when we went to court it was a no brainer for the judge. And when she did have to speak it was with confidence and being stern without coming off as rude. She really did a great job.

Client review
Sylvia is one lawyer that is painstaking and meticulous. She is a patient listener and this enables her get a total picture of your case before she kicks off with it. She has the drive for justice and is result oriented. One aspect of Sylvia is that she does not put up a mind set on a case until she has done her full homework to get the salient points. My case was highly complicated as it was messed up by my previous attorneys who never listened to me or made efforts to understand my story. How can your attorney who only believes in what he or she thinks represent you well? That was my fate. But Sylvia in her perseverance and astuteness, thoroughly brought the case back to life and made a meaning out of it. She brought out the hidden truth in the case and the result is out there in Essex County Superior Court Public Records. Even though she was pitched against two experienced attorneys, she could not be deterred.
