Gary's review
I worked with Gary to finalize my divorce, he far exceeded my expectations in all dimensions: professionalism, expertise, punctuality, communication, character, honesty, fairness. Gary supported me as a friend during the entire process, always available to answer questions and address concerns. Unlike some other attorneys who put their personal agenda first, Gary focuses his efforts on his clients' interests. He was able to negotiate a deal that protected my rights and best addressed my goals, while being fair. I strongly recommend him as a divorce lawyer.

One of the best attorneys in NJ
Gary is a knowledgeable, no nonsense attorney that also has a deeply caring side for his clients. My divorce was easily one of the more difficult times in my life and Gary shepherded me through the experience with his vast experience of the court system, humor to break the tense moments and advice that helped me see the forest from the trees. When the going gets tough and you need somebody in the foxhole with you, Gary is your man.

Great Attorney and Mediator
I hired Gary Blaustein to represent me in the enforcement of the Child Support Order. Gary and his paralegal Debra were very informative, friendly and always available to answer my questions. Gary offers great advice and assists in the most effective resolution of the case. His fees are reasonable and I would recommend his services to family and friends.

Great Lawyer - Highly Trustworthy and Fair
If you are gong through a divorce or thinking about one you should speak with Gary. Going through a divorce is one of the most challenging and stressful events that anyone will ever have to go through. Gary helped navigate me through the process. He is knowledgeable, fair, compassionate and supportive. He treated me like a person not just another client. I interviewed several lawyers prior to my divorce, Gary was the only one whom really seemed to generally care about what I was going through. Great lawyer - great person - I strongly recommend him..

New to this divorce thing
Gary was recommended to me when my wife and I decided to separate, and has been essential in guiding me through the process. He is able to clearly explain the fine points of the law in a way that is easy to understand, and gives invaluable advice. Gary answers any questions that are posed to him quickly and clearly. He has been a great help, friend, and confidant throughout this ordeal.

Quality Attorney
Gary was very helpful, diligent and understanding. In addition to providing excellent representation he went out of his way to make sure that I understood and was comfortable with each step of the process.

Successful Divorce Outcome
Gary always listened to my desired strategy and kept me within the bounds of legal realities. It was very appropriate when he gave input to what I had thought were trivial issues to beware of the minefield I was waltzing through as well. Money was never an obstacle to getting things done properly, and I always felt he had an expeditious end in mind to resolve the divorce as best we could. Highest concern for the children involved and dealing with the stress of my case in a level-headed manner.

A reliable advocate to have on your side!
Unlike most attorneys, Gary is not "instantly on the offense." He truly works to come to resolution that is in the best interest of his client or, in my case (custody issue), the best interest of the children. Gary tries to remove the emotion from both sides. There were times when I wondered if I was pushing too hard.....Gary's answers were always straightforward and honest. However, if a "stronger" approach is needed, Gary will do so, and without hesitation.

Client Review
Gary Blaustein is an excellent attorney. After thoroughly researching for a fair lawyer that would represent me in my difficult divorce I was lucky enough to find Gary. I chose him because he was the only lawyer after three other attorneys that I consulted with that explained the realistic possibilities of my future and not just what he thought I wanted to hear. He was highly recommended to me from a cousin of mine that's a lawyer. He was not only fair but he and his staff provided professional and trustworthy guidance throughout the entire process. Their support and knowledge made a very difficult transition less anxious because I at least knew I had representation that truly cared. Gary and his staff have been there for me and my family through difficult times offering legal advice and counseling whenever needed. We have used him for real estate transactions and any legal transactions, including wills. I highly recommend him for legal representation or counsel.
