Matt represented me in my initial divorce case 6 years ago. Although he advised me to not agree to certain terms of my original Property Settlement Agreement 6 years ago, including agreeing to permanent alimony, I made the mistake of not listening to him. When the PSA came back to bite me a few years later due to drastic reductions in my income and a cross country relocation, he did not say "I told you so" but instead focused on how to improve my situation. Matt through his dogged determination, lawyering skills, and relationships within the court system was able to improve my financial situation drastically by achieving a 30% decrease in my alimony payments. Recently, Matt again represented me in a cohabitation case with my ex. Despite pressure and emotional outbursts from both me and my current wife, Matt was able to stay focused on the issues at hand. His negotiating skills achieved a positive outcome of the cohabitation case as well as removing the permanent alimony I had originally agreed to in the PSA. Now, after my child support is completed I will not have any further financial obligations to my ex. And he was able to settle the case without the need for a plenary hearing which saved me tens of thousands of dollars. Matt is part-lawyer, part-psychologist, and part-big brother. Put his experience and wisdom in your corner before you go to battle in family court. And make sure you trust his judgement and experience the first time!

Divorce is complicated and a situation that you don't want find yourself in but it happens and it happened to me. It's important to work with someone who knows the law, listens and can provide you with sound advice. I have known Matt for 30 years as a friend and he most recently represented me in my divorce. After five years of separation and one divorce attorney behind me, I hired Matt to get it done. Matt is knowledgeable in family law, was aggressive when he needed to be, was honest and open about what could and could not be done. Most important, as a single mother with a full time job, Matt was understanding and accommodating with my demanding schedule. He made himself available in off-hours and on weekends, got back to me quickly and was genuinely a pleasure to work with. He communicated honestly and efficiently, answering my many questions, protecting me and my children. I highly recommend his services! He gets it done!!

It was nothing short of a blessing to have Matthew Podolnick work on my case. His passion and drive for what he does made all my hard work mean something. I was lucky to have him as my voice in the most important turning point of my life; he spoke for my children and I in a way we couldn't speak for ourselves. I don't know what we would have done without him; he didn't only win my case but he helped restore my faith in myself and he gave me hope when it seemed all hope was lost!

I've had experience with divorce/family attorneys and it doesn't get better than the quality delivered by Matt. He is a complete professional and extremely knowledgeable and effective. He delivered results on my case which is something I hadn't experienced in years with my divorce/family matter. Matt was able to effectively navigate the Camden County Family court system which is not an easy task. In addition, he controlled my ex-wife and her frivolous legal maneuvers and rendered her ineffective. Most impressive is Matt's knowledge of the law and his practical minded approach to applying it to my case. He is attentive and responds quickly to questions and requests. He has turned the tide in my case for the first time in years. I highly recommend Matt.

I have been familiar with Matthew Podolnick and his law firm for many years. As a fellow lawyer in the same local community, I can personally attest that Matt enjoys an excellent reputation with his clients and legal colleagues. He is known for being a zealous advocate, always well-prepared, and sensitive to the needs of his clients. I am pleased to endorse this lawyer's work.

Matt kept me focused and helped me through a difficult case. His thoroughness and knowledge of the law intimidated the opposing legal counsel to a point where the case was dropped. He was understanding of my situation and did his best to conduct his work as efficient and cost effective as possible.

My experience with Matt has been excellent. He listens to the facts and deals with you in a way where you feel comfortable with what is or may occur. At no point have I felt "belittled" by a response to a question that is probably mundane to him, basically he treats you with great respect. Not only do I feel confident with Matt, but I would and HAVE recommended him to people who have asked me for a recommendation. My filings with the court have been very precise, specific and quite frankly I think surpising to the other side at times. I think because he realizes how emotionally charged the case can be, he brings, for me at least, a level thought process that is based on the law as it pertains to my own case.

Has been involved in my case for 8 months. He keeps me focused, and encourages me to always stay reasonable. I feel I can call him anytime of day, and he is always focused on the details of a very diffult divorce.Also he completely understands the dynamics of my most difficult marriage .
