Couldn't have picked a better Attorney
I went to stay with my son for a trial separation. Within days my spouse filled for an emergency divorce. Mind you I was in another state and in poor health, I'm 77 yrs old. I had to find a lawyer in hours, because I had 24hrs to be in court. By the grace of God my son found Faith Ullman who took my case at a moments notice. After talking to Faith about my case, she assured me that she was able to go to court and represent me the next day. Do to my poor health I was able to do a conference call into court. I'm so happy she was on my side, because this woman is a tiger in court. Another great quality is she tells you what to expect and she does not nickel and dime you. The end result is everything Faith told me would happen, happened and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome.

Knowledgeable, Caring Attorney
I hired Ms. Ullmann to transfer guardianship of my handicapped brother from my then 86 year old mother to myself. The original guardianship papers were lost and the county where filed was not known. Ms. Ullmann and her staff located the original filings, worked with the origination surrogate's office to transfer guardianship. Everyone I had spoken to told me that this was going to be a long process and to not be surprised when it would not be complete for six months or more. Ms. Ullmann handled everything and had the whole process completed in two-and-a-half months. She kept me informed of problems encountered, goals reached and was always available for questions. She also ensured that the most expedient way of handling matters was used to save on all kinds of costs, including travel. Ms. Ullmann actually made what could have been a painful and stressful process 'easy' for me. Throughout she demonstrated her knowledge and expertise of family law, as well as caring for client and family. I would highly recommend her services to my friends and family.

An Excellent Matrimonial Attorney
Faith Ullmann is a down to earth, practical, and extremely knowledgeable matrimonial attorney. Faith managed my divorce proceeedings in a manner that gave me complete confidence that no stone would be left unturned. She is authoriative and no-nonsense where she needs to be and absolutely sensitive where sensitivity is required. She leaves no doubt that you are the absolute center of her universe during conferences and meetings with opposing counsel. Faith knows the law, is honest and forthright, is thoroughly prepared and cuts through all of the junk that would ordinarily weigh down divorce proceedings.

Faith Ullmann Family Counselor
When I needed legal help in an emergency in a matter before a New Jersey court but living currently in Michigan, Faith took my case immediately. She worked with me despite the distance. It was a case to test the new divorce alimony change to try and end alimony for life that had been in effect for almost 30 years. She won the case.

The Best - Bar None!!
I retained Faith Ullmann to represent me during my divorce and child custody battle. As a father seeking custody of my three year old son, I went into my first meeting with Faith feeling as though the world and legal system was against me. Faith listened intently to my situation, took careful notes and was already formulating a game plan within our first meeting. After talking with Faith, it was clear to me that not only does she have the expertise I was looking for in an attorney, but she also has a tremendous amount of compassion and genuine concern for her clients and their children. She is an absolute expert in her field and out-shined my wife’s attorney at every turn, and all with tact and professionalism. I won custody of my son, kept my house and my lifestyle. I highly recommend Faith to anyone seeking legal counsel in such matters.

Outstanding Attorney - the right person for the job
I first spoke to Faith as I had the expectation that my wife would be filing for divorce. From our first consultation (and I was not yet a client), she offered me three particular pieces of advice. Within three days, situations occurred in which that advice was priceless. Her advice allowed me to avoid issues that would have caused major issues in my life. After hiring Faith, she and her team were consistently helpful and knowledgeable. She offered strategy and advice that allowed me to resolve my divorce very quickly. She also was willing to hold me accountable to decisions and to the path to make this happen. My recommendation is that she is absolutely the person to hire to represent you. She is fair, balanced, knowledgeable and experienced. Without a doubt, I owe Faith for her efforts and focus in a difficult time.

Positive experience
Faith recently represented me in a post settlement divorce case. Our outcome was successful on all points. I found her to be knowledgeable, straightforward and understanding. This case was fairly contentious and I found her to be appropriately tough when required. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

F ullman rating
I was represented my Mrs Ullman in my divorce and ugly c ustody battle she is very knowledgeable and always was available. However, she is best suited as a mediator than in a highly contentious dovorce and custody battle. I am only not recommending her because of this. You need to fight fight with fire and she is not the type. If you can mediate with your ex, then she is great.

Response from Faith Ullmann October 11, 2017
I would have to disagree. When need be I am tough and have been called a “pit bull.” I will also use my mediation skills when needed.
