Deana is representing me in an very complicated child support case where there are not only a lot of moving parts but an extremely difficult person (and attorneys) on the other side to deal with. She is amazing. She knows exactly what she is doing, is a strategic thinker and is very simply not someone that you want to have against you. The best advise I got early on, is that you want to hire an attorney that you'd be afraid to have working against you. She is smart, direct, knows the deep ins and outs of everything to do with her field. I'll be having her as a member of my team forever.

Deana is an excellent attorney and knows exactly what she is doing. When I approached Deana, everything in my case was going against me. She gave me hope on the onset and fought hard to get me a very good outcome including shared custody of my children. I would highly recommend Deana and her firm.

Deana Balahtsis handled my case in a very professional and efficient way. I was falsely accused of a family offense. Unfortunately, it happens many times that family members due to financial and other disputes try to hurt you in every way they can. Sadly enough, I had to go through that ordeal as well.
Up until then I had little experience with the law. Thank God, I was referred to Mrs. Balahtsis. She understood immediately the dynamics of the issue and not only did she manage to dismiss the accusation, but also to prove the whole truth: that I was actually the victim of the false accusations/fabrications, so I should be the one to be granted protection. In addition, having been very emotional to deal with family betrayals, she gave me very good practical advice to handle the whole situation.
Besides the obvious victory, Mrs. Balahtsis had other similar cases at the same court. Therefore, she was able to schedule my appearance right after another one of her cases, thus keeping things very efficient for her and her clients. Furthermore, she seemed to be extremely familiar with this type of procedures. While our adversary wasted precious court time in stating trivial details, she intervened the right moment and she proved our case, with just a few simple facts. Furthermore, during one of the preliminary hearings, she pointed out to the judge that her adversary was going into details, contrary to the nature of the court appearance. That made her adversary look very weak, further strengthening our case.
I know Deana Balahtsis handles many types of legal cases. I would highly recommend her as a lawyer, as she is very intelligent, knowledgeable and creative. I would specifically recommend her for “Orders of Protection” and other family related cases- the type of cases she handled for me.

From the moment I met Deana, I immediately felt comfortable and knew I’d want her to represent me. This was unquestionably the most difficult and painful time in my life and Deana was there to guide and support the entire time. She’s direct, honest, assertive, no-nonsense and tough – and she’s also equally compassionate, caring and fair. Deana was always there to listen and provide excellent guidance. The level of anxiety and uncertainty going through such a traumatic event runs high – however, deep down I knew everything would be okay having Deana by my side. She handled my matter with conviction, confidence, determination and brilliance – she’s a partner and advocate who cares deeply about her clients. She also works well with opposing counsel – which is extremely important if you’re hoping to achieve a positive outcome. Lastly, but as importantly, Deana is a mom which was very comforting and reassuring for me, being a mom myself. In closing, if you’re looking for an attorney who is tough, fearless, objective, straightforward and with a high degree of empathy, hire her. She’s amazing!

Deana Bahlatsis supported me day and night during a difficult custody situation, and was professional, kind, tough, and focused. She went above and beyond to make sure that I had the information I needed, and was on-call to provide advice and feedback and a listening ear when I needed it. Her performance in court was outstanding, and her advice and guidance was equally brilliant.

After interviewing what I thought were the best lawyers in NYC and felling as if they were all heartless bottom feeders, a friend made an introduction and we immediately met that very same day. I felt so comfortable while telling Deana my story, she was kind and understanding. I felt that no matter what the cost she was exactly the lawyer I looking for.
As it turned out her fees were very competitive. I am almost at the end of my divorce and must say that to date we have been a great team and she is my tiger fearless and unstoppable when she advocating for me.
This is the strength and power anyone filing for divorce wants behind them. She has not only has won all my very difficult battles but has picked me up and helped me be as strong as her.
I hope when this is over she and I can become friends because I don’t know anyone as wonderful as Deana.
If you are reading these reviews and looking for a lawyer call Deana and no matter what hire that woman she is a Monster!

Deana was recommended to me by a moms group - a group that I trust and respect. I called her, scheduled a consultation, and hired her on the spot - best decision. Getting a divorce is one of the hardest things I have ever done and she has been there to support me and direct me every step of the way. I’m right in the thick of it and will go to trial in January. I’m so grateful to have her. She’s a mom and she knows what she is doing. She really cares for her clients.

I felt immediately relaxed at a stressful time in my life and knew that she would take care of everything. Incredible communication skills with a five-star support team. Highly skilled in her field and can be respectfully assertive at the right times. I highly recommend Deana Balahtsis!
