Why Margaretha Gravett is your best choice.
When choosing an attorney for life altering events, you need an individual who is firmly grounded in both the law and how to best apply the law to your specific needs. I felt that Margaretha was unequivocal in her knowledge and approach to addressing my issues and concerns. I interviewed three other attorneys prior to choosing Margaretha. I ultimately chose her because it was clear that Margaretha is highly intelligent, very well spoken, and have the ability to clarify complex situations. The unknown is very disconcerting and leads to doubt and fear. Margaretha outlined each step of my process and gave me a timeline which was very helpful. My choice in Margaretha provided me with the certainty that I would not be caught off-guard – that’s pricless.

Knowledgeable, supportive, fierce advocate, professional, ethical
Ms. Margaretha Louisa Gravett took my case with all of its "impossibilities". My marital situation was complex on many levels – starting with how the petition of divorce was filed by my ex-wife and the perception that I was undeserving of any assets or even any defense. I was in dire need of someone who would listen to my “side of the story” and capable of advocating for me despite the obstacles ahead. Ms. Gravett from the first moment was extremely honest and communicated with me often as things progressed, always prepared herself beyond what others deem the necessary and made sure my interests were protected. She was extremely ethical and refused to back down until all conditions were fair. I owe all of the present positivity of my life to Ms. Gravett. Her "word,” her "last name" was the only asset I had to count on to survive. She came through and continues to communicate with me as questions arise. Ms. Gravett is a patient listener; has empathy; understands every client’s issues; and she is a very critical thinker and problem solver. She is so powerfully brilliant because she cares about her clients and holds herself up to a high standard of professionalism and ethics as she carries out each case.

Fair and Understanding 5-star Lawyer
I hired Margaretha for her NY family law expertise after she was recommended by a friend. She took the time to listen to my concerns, work in my best interest, and guide me through a sometimes overly complex process. She clearly pointed out my options and the pros & cons of each choice. I had a great experience working with Margaretha and would recommend her to any friend in the future.

Review of Margaretha Gravett
She was extremely effective - diffusing an understandably tense situation with grace and efficiency. We were able to negotiate a complicated separation agreement in less than 6 months from start to finish. She is practical and balanced. I would highly recommend Margaretha.

Excellent divorce lawyer
Margaretha is the only divorce lawyer I have worked with. She set clear but compassionate boundaries from our first meeting. She was always polite, respectful and through. She always explained things well and never cut corners in doing due diligence. Without a doubt I would recommend her.

Highly Recommended
Margaretha Gravett is knowledgeable and thorough. She puts the interest of her client and his/her children first as opposed to most I have encountered, who care only about a fight so as to string out the process to bill as much as possible. Margaretha will seek a fair solution for the client as quickly as possible. If the other side will not allow this, she will expertly "fight the fight" for you. I would without hesitation recommend her to family or friend.

Peace of Mind
I was referred to Margareta by an acquaintance, having already interviewed another attorney I was pleased with, but made the decision to interview one more. In the first 10 minutes of our conversation, it was clear to me that I would be retaining Margaretha. What set her apart is that she is incredibly thorough, and present. She asked me questions I had never considered, or were even asked. She treats you as if you are her only client, and this level of engagement was consistent throughout my time working with her. Her demeanor is warm and approachable, yet she always maintains a professional decorum. Margaretha is efficient, organized, and always fully prepared. She is patient and considered, and an excellent listener which are qualities that are rare, and I find to be essential in an attorney. As a negotiator, Margaretha is confident, perceptive and insightful, which allows her to anticipate alternative outcomes, and be fully prepared with different strategies. Though firm, she is open and non-aggressive, which creates an environment for the fullest of opportunities to unfold, for an equitable and fair solution for all involved. She comes with the highest recommendation.

Margaretha Gravett
Margaretha Gravett is an excellent attorney who worked vigorously to present and defend my case in the courtroom. Not only she succeeded in protecting my interests, but she also went above and beyond the call of duty to get me a lot more than what I had expected. She earned my trust and respect with her knowledge of the subject area and her vibrant and responsive personality. I would highly recommend her to future clients and feel lucky to have had her as my counselor.

Post divorce advice
Margaretha has responded efficiently and effectively to my legal concerns after my divorce. I am pleased and grateful for her legal advice and services.

High professionalism and ethic
I had a very complicated divorce case due to the hostile nature of my ex-husband. Margaretha approached it with a very professional and sensible attitude, trying to resolve it as amicable as possible, but without compromising my interests. I felt very comfortable to call her any time and ask any questions. She worked very thoroughly through entire process. She helped me to make all arrangements I needed to finalize my divorce papers. She had to represent me in court while I was on vacation, and she did it impeccably. She is not just a very good lawyer, but a very sincere and warm person. She is very polite and friendly, but she fights for your interests fiercely. She is very respectful to both parties, even when it is very difficult to be polite and respectful, such as in my case, when you are dealing with a very unpredictable and immoral person, my ex-husband. Her persistence, tactfulness and high professionalism made it possible. I was very lucky to have Margaretha Gravett as my lawyer.
