DYFS charges
After my teenage daughter repeatedly ran away, we went to the state for 'youth and family services." Dyfs stepped in and rather than providing the family support we were seeking, they twisted the entire situation and removed our daughter from our home. Without Jordan's legal expertise and relentless pursuit of the truth we would never have gotten her back home. He is empathetic while being strong, knowledgeable and great in the courtroom. He left no stone unturned in the process of reuniting our family. I cannot thank him enough!

Highly Recommended
Jordan Stern helped me with my divorce after 14 years of being separated. He was very professional, and kept me informed of everything happening. I received money owed to me that I never expected to to get after all these years, and he did it in 3 months.He's awesome and highly recommended!
