I strongly recommend Neil Cahn for any and all matrimonial, custodial and family issues. I went through a rather lengthy, complex and messy divorce. Prior to retaining Neil, I wasted a considerable amount of time, money and emotional health on insignificant issues. I felt like there was no hope or end in sight.
Neil changed everything. My x-wife’s legal team had one goal - to accumulate as many billable hours as possible. They generated lengthy motion after useless motion, none of which brought us any closer to our divorce. Each of them however played to my emotion and brought me into the fight. I had facts and documentation on my side. The system however is so broken that I could not win these meaningless fights. Time, coin and tears were wasted.
I came to Neil emotionally exhausted and my bank accounts were bare. Although we would ultimately argue over significant financial matters, I was broke. Neil took my case and he was more than fair and understanding of my financial situation. I believe Neil was drawn professionally to my precarious situation and he genuinely wanted to help.
Divorce is painful, especially when children are involved. I succumbed to emotion and I was not making the most rational decisions for my children or myself. Neil not only helped me deal with my emotions, but he helped me separate them from the difficult decisions ahead. Rational thought prevailed. He immediately changed the direction of my case. We were no longer arguing over minor, secondary matters before a judge. We got right down to issues of custody, decision-making, our marital residence, support and maintenance.
My wife and her family were successful in alienating me from my three beautiful daughters. Once daddies’ little girls were turned against me in a vile and vehement way. Neil gave me invaluable advice on how to move forward with my father-daughter relationships. With his help, I have come a long way with my daughters. As for custody, my x-wife would have preferred that I simply vanished from their lives. Neil was successful in getting me more time with my daughters than I expected. For this I am eternally grateful to him!!!!!
Neil built a case based on his in-depth understanding of matrimonial law, experience and case law. There were several complex financial issues in my divorce. Neil not only immediately recognized these matters, but he fully understood how opposing counsel would present them in court. I understand that most divorces never make it to trail. Mine was destined to from the start. Neil was a masterful trial attorney. He picked apart the Forensic Accountant’s analysis of my earning potential. It was literally something out of Law and Order. The accountant didn’t know which way to turn on the stand. His “expert” analysis was debunked by Neil in open court. This ultimately brought the other side to the table and we each came to terms with a reasonable settlement.
I was on the brink of fatherly and financial disaster. Neil turned my case completely around. I shutter to think of where I would be today without having had Neil at my side. Neil brought resolution to my uncertain situation and calm where there was turmoil. I simply can’t say enough about him. I have personally recommended him to several friends going down this terrible road. You can’t go wrong with Neil on your side!
