Delivers on his promises, caring and committed to your case - HIGHLY recommended!
Simon Kabzan was incredible and highly diligent in his approach to my highly contested divorce. I had so much at stake - between my children, real estate assets and numerous other needs - during my contested divorce. He was always effective in his approach and the advice he gave proved to be right on every occasion even when it appeared to be in conflict with my initial views. I learned to depend on his direction from early on when he confirmed his abilities to me during litigation. My divorce lasted for a very long time in light of my husband's contention of every issue that was raised. I always felt comfortable with Simon protecting my interests throughout the process, and despite the eventual trial on many issues, I walk away with complete satisfaction of all results and am able to confidently recommend his services to any one who is in the same position as I was in. Divorce is a very emotional and difficult process to deal with when contested. Anyone considering Simon Kabzan for representation in their contested and difficult matter should have no reservations in retaining him. He is excellent and I have already referred two of my friends going through the same over the past four months. They are both extremely grateful to me, as finding a good lawyer as we all know is very difficult. Thank you Simon and I know you will continue to deliver amazing results to your clients for a very long time from now.

Child custody and support
Simon and his partner, Mr. Geller, were not only expeditious in resolving my nervous concerns, but they were upfront, realistic, and delivered what I had hoped. Thank you and I recommend him and his firm, Geller & Kabzan PC.

Thank you!!!
This is an exceptional law firm, with both partners thoroughly involved in your case. They had made my otherwise life-changing ordeal not only bearable, but most importantly they protected my interests during the divorce. They never gave me false expectations, but were rather clear and straight forward with respect to my entitlements from the get go (unlike most lawyers I had met, who sell you the world, but one retained they not only disappear but also do not come even close to their promised and misleading results). Thank you two very much! I highly recommend this firm and will continue to do so with my dearest friends and family.

Outstanding service for my divorce!!!
First of all, I want to thank Simon once again and a million of times more for his highly professional and outstanding support. Secondly, I recommend everyone to choose Simon without a doubt as his service and knowledge are exceptional. Now, some facts. I did my research before to pick up the attorney. I met with 5 attorneys and Simon gave me the best consultation. Moreover, where do you find the attorney who will give you a very professional consultation on Sunday afternoon and free of charge? I had a difficult situation with my divorce and other attorneys said that there was nothing to do just wait. It looked as everybody wanted to get an easy money from a simple and standard divorce procedure without going an extra mile to help the client. However, Simon suggested and explained all pros and cons of several options and following his strategy we were able to get what I was eligible to and even more. I am so grateful for this!!! Simon navigated me on every step of the process explaining everything in simple way and helping with related issues I had. I could reach him via phone or email any time and he always provided me with comprehensive and full information/updates/advice during those long nine months. Furthermore, I want to mention that Simon was very clear about his rates and has never tried to charge me for additional consultation as many other attorneys tend to do. I wouldn't be able to go through my divorce without Simon's superb professionalism and support. My attorney was Simon, but his partner Richard participated in the first meeting and made a very good impression as well. I highly recommend Simon Kabzan and Richard Geller for your divorce/family, criminal defense, business, contracts, closings!!!

Took Care of Everything!
Mr. Geller and Mr. Kabzan were recommended to me by another lawyer. They were my second lawyers on the case because I had to fire my first. My divorce and custody fight was just crazy. Mr. Geller and Mr. Kabzan were straightforward and no nonsense. Took care of everything. Especially when the first lawyer really messed up. They are what lawyers are supposed to be.

Excellent
Simon helped me in both a criminal defense case and a related family matter. He did a superb job in representing me and I am very thankful. I recommend him with high praise.

Could not have asked for more!
Simon, thank you so much for handling my divorce. Simon had a lot on his plate after the previous lawyer I had worked with dug me into a deeper hole than I had thought. Simon was able to dig me out and throw me a life jacket. We exceeded the benchmarks that we placed and attained all the results that were sought.
Posted by Robert | October 8, 2014
Superb representation
Simon obtained the best outcome for me. But what is most important is that he is unquestionably a lawyer who cares for his clients. I would like to recommend him without any doubt for all of your needs.
