4.5 stars 9 totalReview Shari Gordon
Posted by anonymous
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.

I hired Shari to settle a post divorce financial matter and paid a substantial retainer based on her experience, relationships in the community and particularly her criminal trial background (figured she would be very confident and think fast on her feet).
Within a few months, I had to release her and switch to someone much more confident and experienced in dealing with tax returns and finances and the type of hostile, non-settlement oriented adversary we were facing.
There were also several instances where Shari was not a good listener and was talking down to me. Once I advised her of the change of counsel, I received a bill for $9 over the multi thousand dollar retainer and she magnanimously said she would waive the $9 I owed her.
Unfortunately this was not money well spent and while I regret submitting a negative review, divorce lawyers are extremely expensive and their mistakes can be even more so. Clients have little recourse if they do not receive value so I hope this is helpful to others in a difficult situation.

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!!

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.

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!
