Criminal case
A criminal case is a very serious matter and it is extremely important that a client find the right attorney in which a relationship of trust and confidence extends beyond the already special confidential relationship afforded by the attorney client privilege. I must say that Hillary Brower was that attorney and truly exceeded my expectations, I was confident from my first meeting with her that she would always be a zealous advocate every step of my criminal proceedings. Perhaps the thing that impressed me the most about Hillary Brower was that she never sugar coated anything regarding my case. She was always very straight forward and told me what to expect each step of the way. Hillary kept me informed of each step and what the options and risks were. There were no empty promises made to me just to keep me happy as a client. Hillary was absolutely fantastic and did a great job at keeping me out of jail. I would highly recommend not only Hillary but also Goldstein Law Group.

Hillary is the best!!
On very short notice I contacted Hillary on a divorce matter. She got right on it and worked with my spouse's attorney to arrive at a stressfree divorce. I am looking forward to the next chapter of my life. Thank you Hillary

All of my questions were answered in very timely fashion, and she advised as to the correct actions that ultimately led to the best possible outcome. What a relief!!! I would highly recommend Ms. Brower as an attorney.

Truly The Best Attorney
Hillary Brower is the best attorney. She represented me during my divorce and post divorce issues with my ex. Due to Hillary Brower's hard work I received a very fair divorce settlement and recently received an extremely favorable outcome over custody issues that spanned more than a decade. Hillary not only knows the law, but she is very knowledgeable in how the courts will handle your issues. Hillary Brower is very realistic and cares very much about her clients. She keeps her clients informed through the entire legal process. If you are looking for a family law attorney she is the BEST there is. Thank you Hillary Brower for everything you have done for me and my child. We are forever grateful.

Very Grateful!
Ms. Brower's name was given to me by a family friend who described her as a professional, honest and trustworthy lawyer. Divorce is a very emotional and draining process to go through especially when there is child custody involved. Her expertise combined with warmth made what was the most difficult time in my life conclude most satisfactorily! Ms. Brower was brilliant in her representation of me. She is very intelligent and was forceful when the situation called for it, but is also very thoughtful and compassionate. She helped me to stay focused on the larger picture and she worked on my case in a caring and timely manner. Toni, her legal assistant is also very knowledgeable and considerate. They always return your calls, keep the process running smoothly, and guide you through the inevitable conflicts and hurdle. Gratitute is what I'm filled with as a result of Ms. Brower handling my divorce.

Very Wonderful, Indeed
Over-the-phone consultation was very friendly, very warm and very compassionate. I was really scared to speak to any attorneys since their reputation for being unkind and monstrous is overstated; however, Attorney Brower is nothing as such, highly recommended for consultation and hire.

A Real Super Hero!!!!
Hillary is truly amazing!!! Unfortunately, not the original lawyer to represent me in my divorce/custody battle, Hillary turned out to be a real super hero. She was able to guide me through the significant errors created by my original attorney; saving the day. Truly an uphill battle, her knowledge and advice not only won my case, but helped me to get my life back in order overall. Getting me to focus on what would keep me winning, even after the dust settled.

Expertise and Compassion
Hillary is the best. She helps me get through many complex hurdles as the Family Court turmoil I am facing has an added dynamic of Domestic Violence. She teaches me how to compartmentalize my fears and emotions and place my focus where it needs to be so that I can do my part to work towards successful resolution each time. She is easy to reach and very responsive when I need her help with urgent matters, and her wisdom and knowledge has helped me win many battles along the way. Being entangled in ongoing additional Family Court matters with that "Domestic Violence" root has caused my children and I to face some serious consequences. I NEED someone who can fight for us. Hillary understands and listens to my concerns, and she truly cares about what happens to us. Her staff is also very helpful and compassionate, happily lending an ear when needed.. Knowing that Hillary has the expertise necessary, and that she will be there to take care of responding to the unpredictable complications that the adversary continuously throws my way, makes it easier for me to get through the difficult times as this extremely litigious case drags on…

Divorce settlement
Hillary represented me during my divorce proceedings and successfully negotiated a settlement agreement. She and her assistant were always available to answer any questions or address concerns regarding the proceedings. Hillary was understanding of the painful process, and was able to explain the best options available under NJ law. I would recommend her as a representative for anyone seeking a divorce.

She's real! She takes the time to know you!
My name is Mike, and I have used Hillary for 5 years now. She over saw a divorce I was going through and she over saw my wife and I getting back together. Talk about a situation. She was with me either way. The best thing about Hillary is she always take's my call! Whether I was in jail for something that wasn't true, she took the call and helped me out! The other thing is that after my situation with her 5 years ago, I have called her several times and she has given me advice over the phone. For FREE! Hillary is a class act and knows what she is doing. If you want a lawyer that will fight for you and be honest with you, I highly recommend her!

Finally an Attorney who looks at the Best Interest of our Children
Ms. Brower was referred to me by my Pastor who has known Ms. Brower for several years as he was formerly a mediator for Middlesex County Family Court. Ms. Brower was extremely helpful, understanding, honest, and above all took the needs of my children first. I would highly recommend Ms. Brower if you are needing someone who wants to see the right thing being done within broken families. My children's father and I are both good parents, simply not good with one another. Ms. Brower was the one attorney who made a difference, and set the record straight with the adversary who was and has been simply to have a win and be victorious. Ms. Brower has compassion and is not wanting to have a big fight, but, do what is right for our children.

In December of 2012 I was charged with possession of CDS and simple assault in Edison NJ. When I made my first appearance it wasn’t the usually prosecutor or judge that presides in that township. Originally my charges were placed on an administrative hold for 3 months, and both charges were to be revisited and dismissed if all went well. Upon returning to revisit the case both the prosecutor and judge were different from when I made the first appearance and to my disbelief they indicated that no order for dismissal was noted on the case. I returned 5 times just to be pushed around by the prosecutor requesting adjournments for discoveries and lab reports which were never produced and the judge did not want to hear or take into account what I had said. At this point I felt bullied and pretty much helpless when I came across Ms. Hillary Brower’s website, and I am extremely glad did. Since our first meeting in Ms. Brower’s office located in East Brunswick NJ, she put me at ease and gave me back my confidence, she guided me step by step and made sure that I knew everything she new regarding my case. When the new court date arrived Ms. Brower was right by my side fighting for me and employed every bit of knowledge and resources that she could to protect my rights. On October 8th 2013 at 7PM, nearly a year later all charges were DISMISSED! What’s different in Ms. Hillary Brower’s practice is that she is a sole practitioner and she doesn’t pass you along like most others do. She focuses on you and your case and really does care! Ms. Hillary Brower will fight for you and will get the best results anyone can. I will always recommend her; she will make you feel protected and secure and like I mentioned, she will get results!
