This solely my opinion. My Eiges is wonderful person and lawyer. He did everything in his power to complete my case with the sole purpose of saving me as much money as possible and making sure I would be happy with the outcome. There was a day I was really upset and Mr Eiges bought my mother and I coffee and didn't charge me for it on my bill, nor did he charge me for the extra time spent drinking the coffee and discussing my case. He is a lawyer that cares about his clients and knows the limits of what the law allows. I'm glad I had him on my side (even though I was always angry, and upset, and yelling all the time). And, although he does need a reminder from time to time, I would obtain his services again.
FOR THE MEN - Be prepared, the Family court and Supreme court system are usually on the mother's side. If you can not prove she's crazy, a danger to the kids and her self or depressed, you've lost. Doesn't matter who your lawyer is. Mr Eiges will help you finish the case as fast as possible and will try his best to stay with in budget. My case was almost 2 years. I know it's hard (Trust me I know), but, kids grow up (It took me 2 years to realize that). Be the best dad you can be. Don't be a dead beat. As they grow, enforce it in their minds that you will always be there for them and that you are only a phone call away. Paying child support and living expenses will become difficult, but, you can get a divorce without having to pay you ex every 3 years (Mr. Eiges did everything in his power for this to happen). I gave up a few freedoms, but, it will be well worth it in the long run and my boys know who I am and how much I love me.
TIP: Best advice I can give. Try to avoid taking it to trial. Huge savings if you can. Roughly $15K-$30K. Stay in family court. Finish it fast and move on.

Mr. Eiges is very a patient and a very knowledgeable attorney. He works very closely with me on my custody and divorce case. He guided me with the most professional legal advice through the difficult time. In the beginning, I hired another attorney but he was not professional in the custody case. After doing some research, I decided to hire Mr. Eiges to represent me instead. Although my case was not going easily initially, finally we got it settled. Mr. Eiges and his colleagues have done an excellent job on my case, and I highly appreciated his assistance. And he has tried to keep my legal cost low. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for help.

My divorce from a wife, who thought she found a "diamond-maker" was not going to be easy. I made up my mind to retain Kenneth Eiges before I even met him "in person". I had consulted with several divorce attorneys, when a friend suggested I call Ken. I called and spoke with Ken on the phone. His forthright answers and respectful manner in communicating throughout our discussion won my heart. I am happy I listened to Ken and followed each of his advice. In the end I got almost everything I had hoped for. If it were not for Ken Eiges and his team, I don't know what would have happened to a nest I took many years to build. I shall forever be grateful to Eiges & Orgel.

If all divorce attorneys had the spirit of Kenneth "Ken" Eiges, cases would not drag on. I retained Ken Eiges within minutes of consulting with him. Relocation which other attorneys had told me was impossible, happened because of Attorney Eiges. Monies which my husband did not divulged in his Statement of Net Worth were discovered--leading to my husband filing 3 amended Statements each time Ken and his team would discover. Ken has never raised his voice even when the "heat is on" in all of the 4-way meetings. His outward disposition and calmness should not be misconstrued for weakness. He is a seasoned negotiator and a fierce litigator. That's why I am living the life I am enjoying today--all because of Ken Eiges. I highly recommend Attorney Eiges.

After interviewing several attorneys, I am happy that I retained Attorney Eiges--to work on my divorce--that was finally settled last month. He was polite, professional, and caring during a stressful time. The best part was that he was realistic and honest with me about my situation, which helped to ease my concerns. I also tend to ask an excessive amount of questions and Ken was more than helpful as well as patient when answering them.

After interviewing 3 attorneys and going nowhere, I finally consulted and retained Ken Eiges on the same day I first met with. He has an exceptional listening quality and takes notes. I am one to ask in depth questions, which the 3 attorneys, whom I had consulted with, found to be challenging; but NOT Ken. He answered all of my concerns. "No one knows your story better than you the client", Ken commented "while you explain, I will carefully listen and take notes and then we can discuss, is that OK? There and then, I knew he's the right attorney for me. During my divorce, Ken and his Partner made themselves available. Their very professional staff recognized me as soon as I called. My calls were returned within 24 hours and when Ken was unavailable, I received calls from his office--letting me know that my calls will be returned and they were indeed returned. Even when the attorney for my husband displayed temper and unruly behavior, Ken would remind us that the parties did not hire the two attorneys to add unpleasantness to their divorce but to work in the best interest of each client, and serve the best interest of our children. Ken is an exceptional negotiator as well as a trial attorney. With all the finance involved, my divorce was not easy! When my divorce was concluded, my ex-husband commented to me, what a decent and respectful attorney Ken Eiges is. Ken is man of integrity.

I consulted with Ken Eiges about my divorce after a friend recommended him to me. I was worried because my ex-husband threatened to go for full custody and our house. It was all such an overwhelming experience because hiring an attorney was way out of my depth. Furthermore my ex-husband was probably retaining a team of lawyers since his job puts him in constant contact with other attorneys. My first meeting with Ken was both enlightening and comforting. He carefully explained the subsequent steps that I needed to take and my chances of winning. Just having someone listen to me and create a successful plan was relief in and of itself. I decided to hire him and long story short I have full custody of my kids and the house. I feel indebted to Ken because without him I don't know what would have happened. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I am extremely satisfied with the representation Eiges & Orgel provided me in my divorce case. Ken Eiges handled my case. I always felt that he listened to what I had to say and was always honest with me. He told me the things that could go wrong and the things that could go right. He seemed to know everyone in court and they knew him. He’s not the type of lawyer who is always screaming and arguing but in his own way he was able to get me what I needed. He negotiated an agreement for me which I was very happy with. His fees were reasonable compared to what my husband paid and I feel that I got a better deal than my husband. Sometimes it would take a day to get a phone call back but he always did return my phone calls. I would highly recommend Mr. Eiges as an attorney in a divorce case.

Daniele's review from 12/19/15 sums up my entire experience to the letter. I also hired Ken to represent me in my case. I too am unable to recommend his services as I feel he was distracted. In all fairness he did not physically represent me due to the scheduling of my hearing dates and other cases he was working on, but he did assure me that his associates work for him and promised they would keep him completely informed.
For the first hearing I had one associate who did a reasonable job, yet she left the firm afterwards. Ken assigned me another associate who had to be caught up on a case that was already in progress. Ken did not follow through on any of his promises made during consultation. It got to a point of Ken advising me to accept reality even though no fight was put up.
Unfortunately I was able to accomplish more representing myself in following hearings. If you still choose to hire Ken I advise you to watch his level of interest, not during consultation, but during the initial stages of your process. If he seems distracted you might want to consider your options!

This review of Mr. Eiges’s professional services, solicited by him with a letter dated 11/23/2015, is solely my personal opinion. It accounts for my experience only, and might not be representative of the typical level of service provided by Mr. Eiges to other clients.
I am very dissatisfied with the services provided to me by Mr. Eiges. I can not recommend him and, in retrospect, I wish I had sought legal representation elsewhere. Should legal needs arise again, I will make sure I won't ever hire him again. I feel he did not represent my interests adequately. I felt that my adversary was represented better and more aggressively. In my opinion, Mr. Eiges was too eager to meet my adversary’s demands than to protect my interests. I felt that he was distracted, had little interest in my case, had insufficient attention to detail, poor or no note-taking and bad memory for case details. I felt I was left alone taking all the strategic decisions, despite having no experience. I found him difficult to reach, and his communications late and rushed. He was far less attentive to deadlines and time-sensitive matters than I wanted him to be. I urged him numerous times to improve his performance, to no avail. I also find inexcusable that he failed to keep me abreast of the case's developments, especially its conclusion, despite calls and requests. Eventually I had to hire an independent party to retrieve the status of my proceedings. In my view, Mr. Eiges's behavior caused me unnecessary frustration and anxiety at the time of my life in which I was the most vulnerable.
Otherwise, he is honest and balanced, and he has always been polite and courteous with me. The staff he employs seems qualified, efficient, compassionate and caring. I loved every interaction with them and I regret having to report negatively on their employer.
