Lisa represented me in my divorce case
Lisa guided me and was very compassionate through the entire process of my divorce. She kept me abreast of everything as it happened. I felt Lisa reduced my stress level considerably.

I have used Lisa for the past several years and would highly recommend her. I had two previous matrimonial attorneys and they would get sub par results in court. They were good for dragging things out and billing. Lisa is on the ball, knows the laws and get results in court in a timely manner.

A Child's Lifesaver!!!
I was an out of state father that had his son absconded from his birth state many years ago. Lisa was referred to me from my legal assistance team at my job. We literally didn't know each other from a bar of soap. After hearing the circumstance Lisa took the case at rate that was significantly lower than other attorneys as she had a passion for children. This lower rate certainly didn't stop her from going so far above and beyond the normal realm of any attorney that I have heard of, such as fronting payment to the court until we could get to the bank upon arrival to the state of NJ, walking into a courtroom to get an emergency hearing, having her staff and her work numerous unpaid hours all sitting on the floor of her office going over inordinate amounts of paperwork and legal documents, going to the known address of the respondent on Thanksgiving day to see that the respondent actually did NOT leave the state for a state required Holiday visitation. Lisa worked so hard n dealing with an out of state petitioner for years up until the time I was granted custody of my son when a father getting custody was so far out of the realm of reality back in the day. I can honestly say that Lisa E Halpern saved my son's life, a life that has had him become an outstanding citizen, a hard worker, a kind and loving young adult while going to college to be a math teacher due to his love for children. May God Bless You Lisa now and for the rest of your life!

Great Divorce Attorney
Lisa Halpern was great. She went over everything with me in great detail. She was sure to make sure that I didn't overpay on alimony or child support. She knows the law, and it really showed during my time spent with her.
