Ms Gordon got me through a very nasty and drawn out divorce case and I could not be any happier. Very detailed and professiona
Outstanding knowledge of the law and very confident in all situations. Divorce case was highly contested and she did her best to make sure I was well informed and represented through the whole process. She also kept a careful eye on cost and gave great advice during all phases. I cannot say enough good things about Ms Gordon and the way she represented me. I highly recommend Ms Gordon for her professionalism, honesty, knowledge and compassion. I was very lucky to find her!

Kind and precise
Shari was assigned to me pro-bono, I was extremely lucky to have been assigned such a thorough professional as she. She is very straightforward to the point and she gets the task at hand done quickly and efficiently. You can see that she cares about her clients and she thrives for the best possible outcome of her cases. I would absolutely recommend Shari to any of my friends or family members.

Attention to detail, extremely hard working
I recently hired Ms. Shari Gordon, Esq. as my lawyer for my divorce case.  Ms. Gordon researched all aspects of the case and we came up with a game plan that I was very happy with.   She is highly organized, and meticulous with her paperwork and collection of all information that was needed to move my case forward.  She also encouraged me to do the same so that we were on the same page. She kept me informed of EVERYTHING pertaining to my case, in real time, provided copies of all correspondence with opposing council, so that there were no surprises or misinformation or lack of information on my side. I would highly recommend Ms. Gordon for all of the above reasons.  She will get the job done, and you will never have to worry that being a woman, she would be taken advantage of in the courtroom.  She has been selected, by her peers, as one of the Top Family Law Attorneys in the Hudson Valley, as well as a nominee for the NYSBA Ruth Shapiro Memorial Award. From the beginning, Ms. Gordon took the aggressive tactics that I desired and was needed in order to have the best outcome. Although her credentials were the reason that I retained her, her fees are reasonable and on par with other divorce lawyers in the area. She also has two offices, which made meeting with her very convenient, one in Yorktown Heights and the other near the courthouse in White Plains.

Divorce lawyer and criminal case
Shari gorgon is best lawyer I ever seen. I have 3 beautiful kids and my ex-wife got restraining order against me for something I did not do. I did not see my kids for 6 months due to my legal aid lawyer he was free and free you will get nothing.I retained Shari gorgon on December 2020 since the first day I retained I felt a life again. Shari answers her phone and emails rite way any time until midnight she is on top of everything.I got to see my 3 beautiful kids only because she works hard and prepares you case.Shari is very experienced on what she does Thank you Shari.

The reason you should hire Shari Gordon, Esq.
Shari is an extremely talented attorney who cares a great deal about her clients and her firm. Shari has a strong sense of organization which helped her to always gain the upper hand in court and win a large majority of her cases. Shari is very through and competent professional who always had my interest in mind. She never missed a scheduled meeting and always took my calls. She has an exceptionally strong eye for details. Shari has a very calm demeanor that was a blessing when I was in physical therapy for a total knee replacement. I owe a debt of gratitude for her service. She is a solid lawyer who practices nothing but the best customer service for her clients. She has taken pro bono cases each year to help people who would have otherwise not been able to afford legal counsel. Shari is always available for anyone who is need of legal assistance.

Excellent Attorney!!!
Shari Gordon handled my family court case through very tough waters and helped me feel confident after leaving a very abusive marriage. She showed tough love, helping me see what I had going for me, and what I still needed to work on. She handed my family court case over to a fabulous court appointed attorney to save money, but she is still handling my matrimonial case, which is ongoing at this point. I feel extremely confident with her by side through all of this. She picks up mistakes very quickly and fixes them. She is always prepared and knows the best course of action. I don't know what I would have done without her. I highly recommend Shari Gordon as a top notch attorney.

Westchester County divorce action
Excellent attorney!. Knows the law and knows how to litigate. I would recommend her without question. She did a brilliant job with my matrimonial case. This litigation was contentious. The defendant fired his attorneys, represented himself and retained other attorneys post judgment. Mrs. Gordon remained focused and brought in a win on my case.

Made the Divorce Process Simple/Efficient
Shari is a godsend. She walked me through the process of getting a divorce and was able to answer all of my questions and concerns. Having her on my side made me confident and feel a lot better about the whole thing. Not to mention that her work is top notch and it was all processed very quickly. I cannot thank her enough for all that she has done for me in starting my life again!

Someone who really cares
Going through a divorce process is a very stressful and overwhelming time, and having Shari on my side, made this much more bearable. She is highly professional, and always had mine, and my children's best interest in mind. I am an emotional individual and she did a great job keeping me on track and making the most of your consultations, which in the end, saved me a lot of money, which was very important in my case. My divorce process ended in a reconciliation with husband, and Shari was genuinely happy for me and our family, and that will always stand out in my mind. I am incredibly grateful for all that Shari did for me and me family, and highly recommend her.

difficult Bronx divorce
Shari has shown tremendous foresight in handling my divorce that appeared to be simple. It has become complex due to the difficult nature of my spouse and Shari made sure well in advance that we had all of the right professional help lined up for this contingency. Shari is smart, ethical and hard-working. A good one to have on your team.

A Top Divorce Attorney in Westchester
January 13, 2016 I recommend Shari Gordon with the highest praise for her excellent work on my divorce case. Ms. Gordon is a strong, tough advocate who is extremely knowledgeable, analytical, incisive and articulate in negotiations , writings and court appearances. Shari works quickly and is always timely. Being represented by Ms. Gordon took a great deal of stress out of the implicitly stressful experience of going through a divorce. Ms. Gordon was on top of my case at all times and would not allow opposing counsel to delay the proceeding. Additionally her billing was extremely fair and reasonable. Shari is an attorney of great integrity and an extraordinary advocate. I didn't have to worry about anything being left out, Shari is without a doubt an amazing family lawyer that I am grateful to have found! The opposing side realize they have someone you can't play any games with!!

Professional and knowledgable
Shari was recommended to me by another attorney and I hired her. I found her approach to be professional and efficient. She is very knowledgeable regarding divorce in NY and was able to guide and advise me during a difficult time period for me as well as my now ex spouse. Getting divorce is absolutely a difficult time. It helps to have someone with experience by your side.
