Great attorney!
Jason Tuchman was a real pleasure to work with. He helped with the review of a pre-nup and from beginning to end made the process so easy. Jason really listened to what we wanted, gave great, solid advice and did it all within our short timeframe. It's easy to recommend him to others based on all that but he did even more and went the extra mile to get my last minute signature meeting us after spin class. Good guy!

Best matrimonial law attorney in NJ!
I could not have had a more trusted, distinguished, and qualified attorney representing me during my painful divorce than Jason. He zealously advocated for me while recognizing the benefit of resolving disputes to save me the expense, burden, and emotional drain of proceeding with litigation. He was sensitive to the stress of my divorce and its many aspects, including disputes over custody and parenting time. Additionally, he maintained confidentiality which was of significant importance to me. Soonafter my divorce was finalized, Jason was recognized by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Law Attorney, an exceptional recognition reflecting his knowledge, experience, and skill in matrimonial law practice. I have and will continue to refer clients to Jason as he is the most qualified lawyer I know!

Jason was wonderful during this difficult process. He knows the law and the process of divorce which benefitted me. His demeanor during pressure situations was very helpful and supportive to me. I am glad he was recommended to me.

The World Needs More Attorneys Like Mr. Tuchman
I can not recommend Jason Tuchman enough! The biggest reason that I retained him was his honest opinion on my case. He explained the difference between having an order of payment and the actual collectability of such an order. Most attorneys will tell you what you want to hear, but Jason did not do that. He was very honest about my chances of recuperating my legal fees etc. Throughout the legal process, he was always available, patient with me when necessary, and very clear in explaining procedures. He never wasted his time or my money. I am tremendously satisfied with Jason, his representation of me, and his handling of my case, and I can not say enough great things about him. If you have any child support or family law issues, Jason is your man!

Look no further than Jason
I had the pleasure of working with Jason Tuchman during my recent divorce, and I couldn't be happier with his work. From start to finish, Jason provided exceptional guidance, support, and legal expertise that made the entire process as smooth and stress-free as possible. From our first consultation, Jason demonstrated a deep understanding of the legal issues at hand and a compassionate approach to handling the emotional aspects of the proceedings. He listened carefully to my concerns and goals, and worked diligently to achieve the best possible outcome for all involved. Throughout the entire process, Jason was responsive, communicative, and always available to answer my questions and address my concerns. He provided clear and concise explanations of the legal process and strategy, which helped me to feel confident and empowered throughout the proceedings. I would highly recommend Jason Tuchman to anyone in need of a skilled and compassionate divorce attorney. If you're looking for someone who will fight for your rights and provide the support you need during a difficult time, look no further than Jason.

Ms.
Jason Tuchman is an amazing attorney as he is knowledgeable, professional and posses integrity. I hired Jason to represent me for two cases. The first case was a divorce from my 2nd ex husband. It was an emotional time for me, he was very patient and understanding and was able to complete the divorce as quick as possible. I was very happy with the outcome. The second case was against my 1st ex husband for back child support, unpaid medical bills and college tuition. This was a difficult case as my ex husband was threatening, accusatory, and clear that he just wanted to bully our daughter in court. Jason sent several letters to the judge and spoke to him on zoom. Jason convinced the judge to let my daughter testify by zoom and limit the questions my ex husband was allowed to ask her. I was very relieved after the judges decision. In court Jason went toe to toe with my ex husband and was able to put to rest all of his false accusations and show the judge that what we were asking for was reasonable, and the judge agreed. Thanks to Jason the judge awarded me a very favorable settlement.

Divorce attorney
I highly recommend Jason Tuchman. He was my divorce attorney. Going through a divorce is one of life’s most stressful events. Throughout the process Jason was kind, compassionate, thorough and thoughtful. He responded promptly to all my inquiries. He was very knowledgeable and was clear in his ability to communicate this knowledge to me. Of greatest importance to me, I felt I had an ally with Jason. I trusted his counsel and he helped me to make good decisions for myself and my future. I recommend Jason without reservation.

I’m so grateful
I feel deep gratitude for everything Jason has done for me. From the beginning all the way to the end he really listened to what I was trying to achieve (in my case: a respectful and drama-free divorce), and he kindly and professionally helped me every step of the way. He answered all of my questions and helped me understand my options and the process in general. Thanks to him, we were able to create a fair agreement that is working well still, almost a year after the divorce was finalized. I recommend Jason highly!

An Expert in His Field
Having interacted with many attorneys, I can honestly say, I was extremely impressed with Mr. Tuchman and his work ethics. He is determined, honest and an expert in what he does. I was confident of his work and didn’t think twice about wanting him to represent me. The time and care Mr. Tuchman invested in my case is what you want in an attorney. With Mr. Tuchman’s experience and tenaciousness, he will do everything within his abilities to deliver the best outcome.

I am so happy that I found Jason Tuchman. I knew I could count on him the moment that we first spoke. It felt like I had a close friend or family member working with me during some very hard times. Thanks to him, it all worked out in my favor. I would recommend him to anyone.

Great attorney to have behind you.
I consulted with 3 attorneys when looking for someone to represent me in my divorce as a defendant. I didn't understand the divorce process and was very concerned about my young children. Jason listened to me and made me feel comfortable when I was at my lowest point. Jason answered my questions and I felt he was the right person to represent me. Jason is very professional, compassionate, honest and most importantly cares about his clients. Overall, I had a very positive experience with Jason and his firm.

Personable, patient, attentive, caring
Divorce can be a tumultuous time, but the best decision I made was to hire Jason Tuchman, the most personable, patient, caring attorney one can choose. Jason could and should author “Divorce for Dummies” because he answers all questions, simple and complicated, with care and concern and most notably, without judgment. Jason was so attentive and kind, I could not imagine going through my divorce without him as my advocate every step of the way. I highly recommend Jason Tuchman.

Phenomenal Divorce/Family Law Lawyer
Look no further than Jason Tuchman when it comes to divorce and family law. Jason is a true professional and he knows exactly what he’s doing. He’s been in the profession for many years and many consider him an expert in this particular area of law. Actually his peers would also consider him an expert in divorce/family law as I was referred to Jason by another attorney who deferred to Jason when it came to divorce/family law. He’s very knowledgeable on this particular subject matter & understanding of the entire process. I Would recommend him in a heartbeat!!

Professional and kind.
Jason was my divorce attorney in 2016. He was straightforward, friendly, and professional. His rate is pricey but well worth the money for his level of responsiveness and attention. I have since had interactions with more attorneys from other specialties (estate lawyer, landlord/tenant) and am consistently disappointed with the inattention and disorganization. Anyway, while interviewing me for the intake, we learned we shared the same birthday. He sends me a happy birthday message each year, which I think says so much. I referred a friend to him and she also was happy with his service as an attorney. If you can afford the rate, I highly recommend this lawyer.

Excellent Attorney
Jason was recommended by a close friend, who is also an Attorney. As divorce is such a tumultuous ordeal, Jason was the calming voice throughout the entire process. When it came time to being firm, Jason did not take a back seat to opposing counsel. He was always very accessible each time I had a question. I received a very good settlement thanks to Jason’s guidance. I was extremely confident in trusting Jason with my financial future. I wholeheartedly recommend Jason as a divorce attorney.
