Brilliant legal mind
I had a very serious legal matter about 13 years ago. Blake worked for another law firm at the time, he changed law firms & because of Blake I allowed my very serious case to change law firms too. The only reason I allowed the change was because of Blake Rush. Mr. Rush is VERY METICULOUS!!! Mr. Rush's meticulous nature was the deciding factor for me. You need your lawyer to have that in his nature. I'm very confident Mr. Rush can handle any situation with the utmost professionalism & respect. With any legal matter going forward, I'm calling Blake Rush first & will rely on his guidance & advice.

Blake Rush is an Excellent Lawyer and Won My Case!
Blake Rush was my lawyer for my unique custody battle that had lots of loopholes and twists and turns. Blake was the first lawyer who took the time to stop and listen to me on the phone when I was trying to tell my story and couldn't find anyone to hear me out on the phone. He promptly offered me a time to come in and that was the best decision I made. He was able to point out why this will be a case he can help me accomplish successfully and he laid out a step by step outline of how this will go. He took the time to answer my many many questions and when things got very stressful for me he even set up a impromptu mid day appointment to meet with me and help me clarify this is all a work in progress. What also stands out to make him excellent is that he is licensed in both NJ and PA. My case started in NJ and got 'punted' to PA. When the judge in NJ punted the case to PA- once in the hallway Blake was immediately making moves in the PA court system before we had even left the NJ court house. While we were in the mediation room(s) and the court room(s) his quick educated responses made the other lawyer seem like a mouse and no one took more dominance of the room other then Blake. I feel Blake is exactly the type of lawyer you would envision to take on such a serious case such as custody and he leaves NO ROOM for anyone to not be as sharp as him. (which no one was/is) He did not back down and demanded exactly what I/we wanted step by step throughout the process. And step by step I kept getting what I wanted all the way to the end where I have now ended this battle with custody of my son. Blake was completely honest with me and helped me to understand that with his direction as long as I keep crossing my T's and dotting my I's he will be working hard to make the end goal a reality. And he Did ! There is A LOT of trust going into whom you choose as a lawyer and I couldn't be more grateful that I put all my trust into Blake as my lawyer, and that I did my part the whole way as well. (staying poised/calm-- not showy) I always will recommend Blake Rush as a lawyer for anyone facing the same battle such as custody. He will work hard within the court system's and guide you the whole way. I will always be grateful to Blake Rush for helping me save my son.

Divorce & Seperation Lawyer
Blake is an excellent Divorce attorney. I have never had to go through with a divorce before. I was extremely nervous in the beginning and no idea what to expect or have to do. After meeting with Blake, it was great to know I was in good hands and he brought all the experience needed to help me with my situation. He explained in detail what I would expect in each step of the process. He provided insight into each meeting and I knew what was going to happen. Blake submitted and provided the necessary documentation with the courts and my wife's attorney. He did an excellent job for me and would use him again if needed.

Divorce Representation
I wanted to thank you for all of your support and representation in the recently completed divorce matter from my wife. The whole process was quite involved and cumbersome, and yet you manage to provide excellent representation, guidance, and patience in dealing with this matter from the initial complaint right through to the final divorce settlement. Your knowledge of the court system and divorce process in the State of New Jersey was exemplary. Your professionalism, knowledge, intuition, and management are to be commended, and I would certainly recommend your services to anyone seeking legal representation in similar family matters.

Feedback on divorce attorney Blake Rush from client
Blake handled my messy divorce in 2012 and was able to eventually secure an acceptable settlement despite an unreasonable adversary. In addition, Blake was able to secure a permanent restraining order against my-ex while defending me from false allegations. Throughout, Blake was rational and considerate with his advice and counsel, trying to help me to minimize fees and to avoid further stress. Following the divorce, Blake helped me to defend and prevail with two additional claims by my ex, in both cases securing reimbursement of my attorney fees. Blake is very knowledgeable of the local attorneys, judges and court officers. He has access to a network which provided coverage when needed, and secured experts when needed. Blake returned all my calls promptly, and in many cases he answered brief emails or texts without billing me. I strongly endorse Blake!
