Divorce guidance
Gary did an excellent job in my collaborative divorce proceedings. Monitoring the costs were always a concern and he made himself available during times of questions. Empathy for my situation was always evident. He helped me maintain a less emotional attitude during the process.

Excellent/knowledgeable advocate!
Gary Borger ESQ was a fantastic attorney for my divorce. He is a strong advocate of mediation and ensuring that things are equitable. He leads with a steady hand and is extremely knowledgable and plugged in with the community. I never needed to see his "bulldog" side, so I cant comment on that aspect of his practice...but I was overall very happy with my experience has his client.

Great mediator!
Gary was fantastic. My ex and I hired him to privately mediate our divorce agreement. He took the time to explain the entire process and helped both of us come to a fair agreement. I highly recommend.

Outstanding Mediator
My ex-wife and I retained Gary to assist our divorce negotiations. It was the best decision we made in the divorce process. Gary was attentive, available and at all times fair and knowledgeable. He helped us arrive at a fair settlement, saving us thousands of dollars in legal fees, had we litigated. I recommend Gary without reservation.

Mr. Borger #1
Mr. Borger worked diligently on my case. He always concerned himself with my feelings and thoughts. I felt like I was in the best hands. He was very knowledgable about the case. He is very professional. Mr. Borger has worked for my entire family and everyone has been pleased with the outcomes. I recommend Mr. Borger every chance I get. When the client hires Mr. Borger, they adopt a family member and have a freind for life!

Most Ethical and Professional Attorney
Gary Borger ESQ is one of the most professional and ethical attorney's practicing. Gary went above and beyond for me both in my accident claim, and after I moved from the southern Jersey area, he helped to guide me to find a divorce attorney and also advised me on how to prepare myself. I was very disappointed that I was unable to have him as counsel in my divorce. I lived too far away for his services. Gary not only protects you legally, he also treats you with great respect, and treats you as a friend. He is honest, and hard working. He has your best interest at heart! He is knowledgable and will fight for you at the highest level of professionalism!

Borger: Offers calm in the storm.
Gary Borger is exceedingly knowlegable in the area of family law. I had the good fortune of Gary's representation in my divorce. In an emotional and unsure time in my life, Gary was able to keep me focused on the difficult tasks with compassion and patience.

A divorce lawyer with class.
Mr. Borger is an extremely knowledgeable attentive attorney with integrity. I have never felt at any point that he was acting to inflame the other party or myself. Rather, he has encouraged and supported me in my efforts to rise above the stress and pettiness in the divorce process. He has extensive experience in family law and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone, including family and friends.
