In January 2017, I went to Ms. Barnett's to seek counsel for a difficult divorce/ family situation. I left the office feeling hopeful and relieved, for I was in trusted hands. I was told in 5 days I would receive papers. For my convenience, Ms. Barnett told me she would meet me down the shore instead of driving to Newark. Mrs. Barnett advised me to remove a good sum of money out of the family's small business account. The advice sounded risky to me, an act of divorce war. Time passed no papers. I emailed the office. No answer. Call again spoke with Tom.He assured me they did wish to hand my case. I waited for papers or a reply from the office. Finally received a contract, it was different than what was discussed in office but, I wished to move forward. Sent a new email, for my daughter was having legal and health issues. I informed office I would be away for several weeks. Upon returning back to NJ, I emailed office, stating I wish to pay. No response.Time passes, I went to office to drop off money. Receptionist was confused. Ms.Barnett comes out in a huff stating she cannot take my case as someone in my husband's family was causing drama. As tears fell from my eyes, for my hope was crushed, I asked for a referral. She said, “I have none.” Thank God, I did not follow her advice to take money out of the "family" business. It would have put in a most serious, dangerous situation. This situation was handled in the most up most unprofessional manner. 1. She could have called me after accessing the situation. 2. She could have had an email or letter stating she could not accept the case. 3. Today is April 17, 2017 almost 3 months of waiting, being assured by Tom, that yes all was well on their end. The least she could have done is given me a referral. In fact, she should have called them herself while I was there to ensure I would be taken care of properly. Her directions to withdraw funds could have left me in a most grave situation. Buyer Beware, she did not have my best interest at heart.

Brooke and her staff were absolutely awesome. They did a great job finding the best way to approach my case, explained every detail, and were always ready to answer any questions I had. Brooke was ready to fight for me till the end and I could not have had a better lawyer.
