Ms. Stark is a wonderful person both on a professional and personal level. Her work has always proven to be outstanding. She is a very caring and devoted to her clients and would highly recommend her.

Recommended through a friend to review my Pre-nup. She explained it all to me in "english" so to speak. Patient with all of my questions and highlighted some unfair issues. She was able to negotiate them so that the agreement was fair for the both of us which is should be. I found her easy to work with and fair with her time in ratio to her billing. She made this event a lot easier for me to deal with.

Vivien is an excellent lawyer. She is not only knowledgeable of the laws and the system, but also over Judges and lawyers she goes up against. She has an excellent read on others, and keeps calm despite how often I lost my head during "the process."
It took 1.5yrs for Vivien to help me gain custody of my beautiful daughter. Vivien still keeps herself available to answer any questions or concerns I might have. And when it feels the sky is falling, Vivien goes over the laws point by point until I am at ease.
I will use Vivien again and again and would recommend her without a moments hesitation!

As an attorney who works in the Bronx, I have interacted with Mrs. Stark and see her on a regular basis as well. As an attorney in the legal community I have had the opportunity to speak with her personally as well as read her posts in the Avvo community forums and she demonstrates a firm understanding of the law.
