Superb experience
Mr. Jewell handled my divorce with such a dedication and compassion. I was updated on a regular basis as to where my case stands both legally and financially. It was done efficiently and I was able to move on with my life faster than I expected.

Would highly recommended. Detail orientated and non-reactionary
I'd highly recommend Ken for anyone going through a divorce. Ken and his associates gracefully handled my divorce, which included a long list of complex assets, with a gentle yet firm hand that helped avoid confrontation. The result two years latter, I have good relations with my ex-wife because we avoided litigation, which also would have been a tremendous waste of money. Would highly recommend Ken and his team.

I would recommend for sure
I hired this office last year and since that point, my divorce was done in 7 months. Everyone in this office was very helpful, including Dorothy who works as a coordinator. Ken and his lawyers are highly professional and efficient. I came to them because my divorce was so messy with my first lawyer ( I made a review about them) and my accountant recommended Ken. He inspired confidence from the first introduction. He made me feel at ease about the process, he worked tirelessly to help me get through it. I made a great decision hiring this office, I would definitely recommend!

I worked with Robert in a situation that had delicate divorce law issues intertwined with tax issues. In collaborating on this matter I saw that he was clear regarding the implications for complex divorce proceedings, and also helped to provide encouragement to the client to make hard decisions in a difficult situation.

Knowledgeable, efficient and caring
Ken was highly recommended by colleague of mine who hired Ken for his complicated divorce. The whole process was shorter than I anticipated and Ken was able to make it as smooth as possible. He went out of his way to explain legal issues to me and help me make the right decisions. Needless to say- I am very happy with the end result. I am in much better place thanks to Ken!

robert kenneth jewell
i received Ken's name from a friend and called his office and went in to his office for a free consultation. He is very direct, specific as to what my divorce would entail and was kind when he spoke. I retained Ken and when my divorce was ongoing i was kept abreast of everything before it was done and going forward. I am a lay person and Ken and his colleagues always spoke to me in people speak.

Honest, caring and thorough.
My attorney was always caring kind and helpful. He walked me through the divorce process and understood the issues from the first time we spoke. He handled my divorce with a keen knowledge of the law, compassion, empathy and fought for my rights and best interests. I couldn't have been more pleased.

Dishonest & incompetent attorney, needs to be disbarred
Very dishonest and Incompetent attorney, I'm surprised he is still practicing and hasn't been disbarred yet. Billing is outrageous - charged me 5 times the usual amount to draft a ' divorce settlement agreement' which did not even mention visitation or custody!!! I won a good chunk back in arbitration, and he refused to pay (against the rules of the NYLA & his own retainer agreement ) Took me to Civil court and asked the judge to vacate his own retainer agreement, that he and I signed when I hired him, he lost. He then appealed and lost again. Then he took 2 more years to pay the arbitration award and remainder of the retainer that he still had in escrow. I filed a complaint at the Departmental Disciplinary Committee for the First Department in Lower Manhattan in 2007 and encourage everyone else with a bad experience to do so too. He gives attorneys a bad name and preys on people who are going through a hard time anyway.

Billing questionable
Defintiely charming but questionable billing practices-- as I was billed for 3 people reading every email in my very basic, no assests divorce. I have been told by 3 other attorneys that he charged about 3x what I should have been charged for the work completed.
