Since childhood, I set my goals high and did not stop until I reached them. As a first-generation immigrant, I overcame many obstacles, including the language barrier and poverty, in order to succeed.
I worked full-time while putting myself through college and continued working part-time while in law school. Through the years, I had wonderful mentors, including employers, professors and even a federal judge, who gave me great advice and inspiration.
After law school, I worked at Budd Larner, PC, a large New Jersey law firm, where I learned the essential litigation skills. I was fortunate to be mentored by the industry leaders in family law, bankruptcy and commercial litigation.
I am now proud to open the doors of Proskurchenko Law Group, LLC. We are a hollistic law firm, committed to evaluate and meet all of our clients' needs in various areas of the law. Our priority is to provide personal attention to each client in order to understand the goals and objectives behind each issue and then fight zealously to achieve them. Each matter is carefully handled by a highly qualified attorney and staff. Our goal always remains to achieve our clients' goals in a timely and cost-effective manner.
We are also proud to serve the community of New Jersey by providing various pro bono services, such as drafting wills for members of the armed forces, policemen and firemen as a part of the Wills for Heroes initiative. Further, we enjoy volunteering to help improve the lives of our neighbors by participating in such activities as planting trees in Newark with the New Jersey Tree Foundation.
If you are looking for a law firm that will listen to you, respect you, and fight for your cause as if it were their own - you can count on us!

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I DO NOT endorse this lawyer. A client came to me last year desperate for help in a bankruptcy matter because this attorney, Ksenia V. Proskurchenko, had taken a large retainer from him and then not performed any legal work on his behalf. Neither she nor anyone else at her firm was available when I made efforts to find out what had happened. I tried reaching her by phone, email and regular mail. The only thing I did not do was drive to her office - which probably would have been useless. Ultimately I had to file a Substitution of Counsel with a Certification of my efforts to reach Ms. Proskurchenko, rather than by consent, because I never received any response from her. Her conduct in taking this client's money, giving him terrible advice and then abandoning him is clearly most unprofessional, and I would say arguably criminal.
Karina Lucid Bankruptcy and debt Attorney
I endorse this lawyer. Ksenia is an experienced attorney whose participation and comments in Avvo show her commitment to serving clients as well as her level of experience. She is an excellent attorney that I recommend wholeheartedly.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
This means the attorney did something wrong, but the State did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
