Exceptional
( 2022) I had a post-divorce dilemma and needed an attorney. I did not use an attorney for my initial divorce, instead, I went with a paralegal service which was what I could afford. My ex-husband suddenly had an epiphany after 9 years of being divorced that he disagreed with the final divorce judgments. I searched the internet for an attorney after being notified by his representative but never came across Robin & Salvatore so I asked my neighbor and he got her number from a friend who had used her. In my gut, I felt I should not look any further and I did not. I met with Robin and her partner Dave and immediately I knew I made the right choice. I sat down with Robin and reviewed the dilemma and I felt relief! She made me feel comfortable, she is knowledgeable and professional in every aspect. During the process, communication with Robin, Dave, and their office staff was seamless! I never had to wonder what was next because they kept the line of communication open. Through it all I felt heard and understood. All worked out in my favor for me and my kids. I cried solitary and prayed and asked God to continue to guide and protect Robin, Dave, and her staff while giving them the strength to do what they do in people's lives. It was an excellent experience in many ways, personal and professional . I am grateful to Robin and her dynamic team. If I ever need an attorney under the umbrella that she practices, I know who to call and who to recommend when asked. “ Wernik & Salvatore”

Made my son's wishes come true!
Robin was our attorney for our psychological parent case. She was extremely knowledgeable and realistic as to the challenges we were going to face and the costs associated with the complex case. After a 7 day trial, we were named psychological parents and were awarded everything requested to the Judge. Robin prepared written and well supported briefs, prepared witnesses, knew experts in the field, and understood the complexities of our family dynamic and everything we needed to protect. Robin was so supportive and wanted so hard to make my son's wish come true - to have his family legalized and recognized!

ROBIN IS FANTASTIC
Robin Wernik was my divorce attorney. She was absolutely amazing throughout the entirety of my long, drawn out, difficult divorce. Robin is extremely knowledgeable. Her expertise and professionalism helped me navigate through a very difficult time. Robin is aggressive, strong and compassionate and always made sure all decisions were made in my best interest. Robin was very accessible, Between herself and her amazing office staff, her response time (via email, phone call and/or text) was always very quick. I highly recommend Robin. I am confident you will be pleased with the results of your case with Robin as your advocate.

Best Lawyer around!
I used this law office for a very difficult personal family matter and Robin Wernik, Esq. represented me with the utmost professionalism. I could not have felt more comfortable in her hands. Her staff was also extremely professional at all times and followed thru with every concern I had. I can’t say enough about my attorney and her entire office. ++++++ If you need an attorney I would highly recommend Wernik and Salvatore. Ms. Wernik, Esq. took on a BIG firm and showed them up! Big firms don’t always mean good attorneys represent you.

Amazing Attorney!!!
I have used Robin Wernik for the past several years and I can't express my satisfaction enough. Robin and her firm went above and beyond the call of duty especially in regards to working with my very hectic schedule. My case was very intricate and complex however Robin and her team handled it with ease and efficiency. I highly recommend using her for your potential future legal matters.

The right choice
I hired Robin Wernik several years ago to represent me in a custody / child support case. Ms. Wernik and her staff were not only professional and well informed, they were very compassionate and attentive. She is without a doubt the lawyer to hire. I am blessed to have been able to work with her and without her I don’t think I’d be where I am now.

Restored my faith in lawyers
Looking for a divorce lawyer, we chose Robin based on her reputation and reviews. She also did wills for us, powers of attorney etc. While she could not represent us in NJ (for the divorce) she got us a lawyer in NY. She is honest and trustworthy because she could have kept the case in NJ but it would not have been best for the client. Also, with all the work she did for us we were surprised we did not go over the retainer we gave her. Aside from being a really nice person, she is a dynamic lawyer, honest and caring - her client has Stage 4 cancer among other things and she never fails to ask how he is. Her staff is wonderful as well.

Top notch attorney
Robin represented me in a custody case. Her skills in and out of court are great. I was very satisfied with her representation, knowledge and experience. Most importantly she cares about her clients and the emotional impact cases have on them. Anyone who hires her will be extremely happy.

I highly recommend. Awesome attorney!
Robin represented me a few years ago in a divorce matter and I was searching for her information to refer her to a friend. I was SHOCKED when I saw a poor review. I remember her being a competent and sensitive attorney. She always cared about my emotional needs, as well as my economic situation. She is well respected by her her peers...and I could not have felt more comfortable working with her. She is a fierce advocate and I walked away extremely happy with my results. I HIGHLY recommend her.

Robin is AMAZING!!!
Robin is beyond amazing!!! She spent a great deal of time on my VERY difficult case and was always available to answer my numerous calls and emails. She was always straightforward and confident. She was always professional and well prepared. I never felt worried with Robin on my team. We were able to win our case because of Robin's extensive knowledge of child custody laws, especially regarding Psychological Parents. My 4 year old is happy and healthy at HOME where she belongs!!! Robin helped to ensure thats where she stays! She is AMAZING!!!

Robin Wernik is extremely competent
I've been acquainted with Robin for over 10 years. Robin handled a divorce, during an extremely difficult time in my life. Her billing was fair and her office staff was highly professional. I was more than satisfied with the results. A year or so ago, Robin helped me handle a landlord/tenant issue with no difficulty and to my satisfaction. About a year ago, one of my friends asked for a referral. I unequivocally recommend Robin because I knew she would fight for my client and the minor child involved. I am happy to report great results and my friend was more than satisfied. Great attorney and always highly professional!!!

Outstanding Lawyer
Robin was able to absorb and successfully navigate a complex child custody battle which spans across three states. From the first time in the court room and until present day, Robin, has confidently demonstrated her legal skills in the courtroom. I am impressed with her attention to detail with each of my cases - she still represents me to this day.

Dedicated and Strong for You!
Robin was there for me in the toughest journey of my life thus far. I happened upon her via the internet and the connection and commitment I felt from her was instant. I knew I had to have her on my side. And from that moment on, she was! I had spoken to several lawyers and not until I met Robin was I confident, eager, and ready to persue my divorce. She walked me through everything step by step. She answered all my nerotic questions no matter how silly or serious they were. If It weren't for Robin, my ex would have walked all over me during the proceedings as he always did. Robin stood by me and FOR me! She was my strength. She had my best interest in mind at all times. Not only do I respect her as a lawyer and thank her for getting me through that time in my life, I admire her as a woman and mother. I am greatful to have crossed paths with her and will turn to her in the future always! Thank you Robin.

Great Attorney
Robin was my attorney for my divorce. She an excellent job for me. She made sure I got everything iwas entitled to and really fought for me. Also she was very caring and concerned about my emotional needs during the process. I highly recommend her.

Excellent Attorney
Robin Wernik represented me in my divorce which was a very emotional time for me. She was very understanding. If I had any questions she was always available to answer them and if Ms. Wernik was not available her staff would always try and provide an answer or have Robin or her partner return my call. Robin made a very difficult situtation easier to handle. Her professionalism is unsurpassed and without her help I don't know what I would have done. Ms. Wernik is a kind and thoughtful attorney who had my best interest. I would definitely recommend Ms. Wernik and her firm.

Very caring and knowlegeable
Robin Wernik represented me in my divorce. Anyone who has gone through a divorce knows how emotional a divorce can be. Having Robin as my attorney she was not only knowlegeable but also caring and compassionate. At the time I was thinking with my heart, however Robin advised me and I received a very good settlement. I would highly recommend her. Also, her staff is wonderful and very helpful.

excellent and very caring
Robin represented me in a family law matter a couple of years ago. She gave me excellent representation. She always kept me informed and was very caring not only about my legal needs but my emotional ones as well. When ever I need legal advice I still call her and she always returns my calls. I highly recommend her.

Total Disappointment
Found that I initially had Robin Wernik as my attorney and quickly tossed aside to her partner Salvatore whom is not as savy as she. Furthermore I found neither of them really didn’t want to work and set a good case for me allowing my husbands attorney to run the show and the costs of her billing kept increasing without anything to show for it. End result I ended up doing everything getting everything I asked for though Robin Wernik whom was to be for me said that could never happen.......did happen! Kept after both to make sure things got typed up and when they were tons of errors and of course the mistakes were fixed on your $ not her time. In fact there were mistakes same mistakes that took three times to correct!! Would never recommend Robin Wernik and especially her partner Salvatore!!
