Having used Ms. Wayne’s services on several occasions, I find her very easy to talk to and easy to understand. She explained things fully and was very patient in answering my many questions. She is extremely knowledgeable and more importantly - she’s down to earth I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again or to recommend her to friends and family.

I retained Deb during my divorce and she did an exceptional job helping me navigate through a very difficult separation. Beyond just providing sound legal advice and guidance, she was incredibly supportive during a very challenging life event. She is thorough, thoughtful, and offered great counsel to keep discussions productive and focused.

Deb Wayne is an excellent attorney. She is very knowledgable, responsive, and patient. Whenever I was getting agitated or upset with the process, she was able to calm me down, reassure me, and refocus me. She knows her stuff and I highly recommend her!
Adrienne Orbach, Family Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I have had several legal /matrimonial matters with Deborah Wayne over the last 10 years. Deborah has my upmost respect. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful and deliberate in her representation of her clients. She has acted as mediator on cases that I have served as review attorneys for or has been my collaborative counter-part on drafting and negotiating pre-nuptial agreements to full collaborative practice divorces.
