MAKING SURE MY CLIENTS GET THEIR DUE.

In practicing family and matrimonial law exclusively for the last fifteen years, I have learned many things, but the one that I believe is most important is that ever case and every client is different. And because every client and case is different, each one needs a unique perspective and approach. Because of this, we develop the strategy in every case to get the best results for each individual client.

Big Help
David helped me out more than once and it believe without him the system would have chewed me up. Before having David on my team the courts treated me like a dead beat even though I never missed a payment.

David Zaslavsky was a wonderful attorney to me in a very stressful time.  He helped me with an order of protection case, and he was great at explaining all of my options in a clear and concise manner.  David was very professional, and was committed to acting in my best interest throughout my case and as new events unfolded.  Would highly recommend.

Child support attorney
Mr. Zaslavsky at The Law Office of David Zaslavsky was my attorney in Child Support case. I’m glad I had him as my attorney. He really listened to what I wanted and answered all my questions. I ended up in getting what I was looking for because I hired him.

Custody Battle
With Mr. Zaslavsky, you know exactly what and who you get. He is one of the most upfront, honest and transparent attorneys I have ever had on my side. The saying is true you get what you pay for with this gentleman. Not only did he listen to me, but he understood where I was coming from and always understood what was in the nest interest for my child, if it was not for him and his presence that he has while in the court I would never had won custody of my son. Thank you David, and I will always use him for any and all future cases and would recommend anyone else to do the same!!

Highly Recommend- Diligent, Detailed & Determined
David represented me in my divorce case, and was instrumental in streamlining the process. During the most heated points of the final negotiations, he remained steadfast in our position and helped me devise strategies to gain leverage. When opposing counsel was waivering in their ability to follow due process and file paperwork timely, he was equally as steadfast in his position and ‘white gloved’ the process to completion. I can only speculate for the discussions that took place behind the scenes, but by the end of the case, I felt as though opposing counsel had been through the wringer, and the negotiated settlement felt equally fair and just. I would qualify my Divorce as successful, and David was instrumental in assuring this. Highly recommend retaining as counsel if you need someone who is going to get the job done and not take any excuses or lack of action lightly.

I appreciate the candor, seriousness and steadfastness toward my case
David and his team are great. I came to him at a very urgent time. He got right on the job and forced some immediate initial action. I received temporary orders in my favor and it ended up being very necessary because my case ended up dragging out for 2 years, with covid shutdown but they stuck with it and saw everything through. I appreciate his candor and seriousness toward my case. Highly recommended.

Mr. Zaslavsky !!
David helped me at the worst moment in my life. He is passionate, thorough and works fiercely for the client. He doesn't waste any time and brilliantly expedites the process when it's needed. He knows exactly what to do. He is absolutely the best in the business.

Tough and Fair
I am working on retaining David currently for my case. I was served with a custody petition late 2021 in an immediate rush with no research I hired my original lawyer out of desperation. My case is a little different than most. David was the first person to tell me ugh absolutely not these are all things that need to be considered and he was the first person to make me and my family feel like we have a voice.

We are grateful and finally at peace
David has helped me though many cases. He stood by my side for Paternity, Child Support, Contempt of Child Support, Fails ACS allegations, custody with visitation and grandparent’s visitation. He was set out of the best interested of my child. He told me when I was asking for too much and he told me when I needed to fight. He was right! He stood up and fought for us even when I felt I could not take any more, he was right there. I got everything I requested. I hate to use the word “won but he “won”. I could not ask for a better attorney and I’m so glad it is now over. He was always truthful and that’s what I loved about David. I would not be where I’m now with my family if it was not for him. We are grateful and finally at peace.

Excellent work
As man dealing with family court issues, it is really rough and we are always considered the underdog in the courtroom. So I got a lawyer, and it was Mr. Zaslavsky. As my attorney, he listened to my side of the story and was able to counsel me through the entire process. To make a long story short, I ended up winning the case. Mr. Zaslavsky by far is one of the best attorneys I have seen. Guys, you won’t go wrong. He will be with you every step of the way, so you won’t be alone.

Trust Worthy & Great Sense of Humor
I have worked with David on two different family court cases. During our initial conversation, I expressed the particulars of both cases and my concerns. David explained the facts of the case, what we should anticipate, and how to prepare. I immediately forwarded supporting documentation for his review, and both David and his associate touched base with me. David is honest, trustworthy, and will fight to get you a successful outcome; his diligence and commitment to my cases resulted in both being dismissed. The cherry on top, in times of distress David’s great sense of humor made these challenging times a bit less stressful.

Excellent Family Attorney
David Zaslavsky represented me in a Legal family Matter case with ACS. From the moment I spoke and met him I knew he would get me out of the mess I was accused of and have the case against me, dropped and closed for good. Thanks God and Zaslavsky I can now live my life much peaceful. Never once did I doubt I was in the best possible hands. Always replied to my phone calls and emails without delays. I recommend David Zaslavsky for any family legal matter.. I am a good example of a happy client. Thanks again…

Wonderful job done in the complicated international divorce case situation!
Mr. Zaslavsky managed to persuade the cohort of pricey and overconfident lawyers that the ridiculous claims of their client who tried to fight for custody and then unsupervised visitation rights of his so called stepchild are unsound and not legally right. He also made them realize that ignoring international law in respect of Hague Convention by starting the second divorce action while the first one was already pending is also quite not lege artis. All his efforts made the plaintiff withdraw the faulty lawsuit and made me very happy saving my time and nerves from unnecessary and costly litigation. Thank you Mr. Zaslavsky for your hard work, skills, empathy and professionalism!
