AMAZING Lawyer!!!
This is my first ever written review, but I felt it was necessary to share the experience I had with Brian and his team. No one wants to go through a divorce, but if you have to go through one, you need to hire Brian! I did and I will never regret it. He came highly recommended by a friend of mine, and he was amazing! He is extremely knowledgeable, caring, approachable, and realistic. He was always available, responsive, and gave me the facts. He is certainly a rarity in the field!

Excellent Attorney
I hired Brian after my first attorney was a complete disaster. Brian quickly came up to speed and provided me with invaluable advice that guided me through a very difficult time. Thanks to Brian and his unique ability to navigate obstacles put in our way, we successfully completed our litigation with a positive outcome.

Excellent Lawyer
Brian is an excellent lawyer, when I came to him with my case I had so many questions and mostly concerns. I had seen other attorneys before and none of them were optimistic and positive about my case. With Brian he completely analyzed my case, he took into considerations every outcome and he explained everything to me with all the details. He made me feel very comfortable about my case and I had a very positive outcome at the end. In addition to that, he is extremely knowledgeable and he knows all of your rights and he will fight for them. I highly recommend Brian to anyone whose in need of a strong attorney.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
Brian Latimer represented me in two separate post divorce cases. Brian and his team were extremely professional, competent and compassionate throughout the process. His initial consultation was packed with information and I felt he was very open to listening to my concerns. He kept me very well informed as to what to expect throughout the entire process and was always very prompt and clear in his communications. His approach is not to inflame the opposing party but to work towards a solution in a non-adversarial manner. I am extremely satisfied with his representation and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs help navigating through the divorce process.

Efficient and effective
I hired Brian Lattimer for my post divorce case. Upon meeting with him I decided he was the best for my particular case. He was thoroughly knowledgeable with NJ cohabitation law and the specifics of my situation. Very efficient and negotiated a reasonable conclusion. He was positive and made me feel secure that winning was the only option. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for divorce or post divorce case. Thanks Brian for all your help through a difficult process. Julie

Great Attorney!
I hired Brian Latimer to represent me in my divorce. It turned out to be a very long, drawn out process due to my difficult ex. Brian was a star. Held my hand thru the entire process, answered all my calls and questions, was there for me and my family every step of the way.

Brian P Latimer Review
I had a consultation with Brian and hired him on the spot. He was secure in his job knowledge with respect to my matrimonial case and made thoughtful determinations after carefully listening to my scenario. He then was able to offer considered alternatives as to how we would proceed. I then felt empowered and confident that we had a carefully deliberated and developed strategic plan that would best benefit me and produce a postive outcome for my case with the least amount of discord; which was my desired objective. I was very happy with his calm demeanor, knowledgeable perspectives and no nonscence approach to matrimonial law. I found Brian to have an exceptional ability to quickly and accurately assess the facts of my case in order to implement measures that would achieve my goals with limited confrontation in order to win my case. I would definitely utilize his services again if looking for a competent lawyer that knows how to win with the least amount of stress!

Stellar Attorney
I had the pleasure of hiring Mr. Latimer as my attorney. Mr. Latimer was recommended to me by another attorney. Mr. Latimer's knowledge of the law is noteworthy. In fact, his confidence is very reassuring. I knew that I was in excellent hands. His paralegal Kristina's knowledge and professionalism are impressive. They both were excellent in handling my case. Mostly, I would like to recognize Mr. Latimer's kindness toward me. His care and concern for me will not be forgotten. He and Kristina have my highest regard and recommendation.

Brian is an excellent divorce attorney and I would highly recommend him. He helped me see things from a totally different perspective. Where I envisioned my divorce to be and where we ended up were from his hard work and ideas. He is very responsive and knowledgeable.

Brian represented me several times, post divorce, and if I had him representing me for the divorce, I am confident there would not have been any need for post-divorce proceedings. He went above and beyond what any previous attorney had done for me. Brian’s goal was to reach a resolution that would be best for me, and he was able to accomplish that. I greatly appreciated the time and effort that he put into my case for the court, as well as the information and explanations regarding certain aspects of divorce and family law that I had not previously been made aware of. I highly recommend Brian because his knowledge and expertise were exceptional.

excellent attorney and human
Brian has worked with me for nearly 20 years on various family law issues. He is an excellent attorney and I recommend him highly. He is responsive and always returned my calls or emails within hours if not minutes. He is fair, well-versed in NJ family law, and always looked out for my (and my children's) best interests as his client within the law. He explains the law clearly and thoughtfully and was spot on with his advice. In court, he is confident and passionate in arguing for his client. I am fairly sure the opposing parties in my cases are not quite as fond of him as I am, LOL.

Compassionate Advocate
Mr. Lattimer was sensitive to the emotional impact of my divorce. He clearly articulated the issues and timely responded to all inquiries. I always felt that my interests were paramount and he ensured that each stage of the proceedings moved forward in an expedient manner. I am grateful to have had Mr. Lattimer represent me during a very difficult time in my life.

Brian Latimer is not only an excellent attorney but an exceptional human being which is probably a rare case in his profession.
I have known Brian for over 20 years, when I was first referred to him as an attorney to represent me in a messy divorce case. From the very beginning of the grueling process I felt that he was not only my attorney, but a friend as well. He listened to me and prioritized what would be in the best interests of me and my children, while also being completely honest about what was realistic, and what was going to be hard to achieve. He would even use his personal time to make sure that my children and I were doing well. He also was honest, and upfront, about his costs, and was thorough and exceptional in his understanding of the law. What makes Brian an exceptional attorney is his Professionalism, Compassion, and Commitment, combined with a deep personal interest in your case, which leads to the most professional and successful results. He always kept the best interests of me and my children in mind, and geared his advice toward this every step of the way. After 20 years we still keep in touch, exchanging Holiday greetings and keeping up with news about our families and kids. I would recommend Brain Latimer at any time without hesitation or reservation. Ewa

Professionalism with Compassion and Commitment
I have to say that going through a divorce was by far the hardest and most painful obstacle I have ever had to face thus far in life. I don't know how I would have gotten through it without the compassion, devotion and professional expertise exercised by Mr.Latimer throughout the entire process. Communication was always available, open and easy. At the end of the long stressful, arduous road I felt extremely well represented by Brain and feel as if I gained a compassionate friend through the process on top of feeling very well represented. I couldn't thank them enough....
