I had excellent results using Alex Potruch. Alex handled my matter from beginning to end with the utmost dedication and professionalism and went far and beyond to make this difficult time easier. He is patient, informative, and thorough. He was always available by phone and email to promptly address any issues. I was relieved and confident to have him on my side.

Alex not only displays the utmost professionalism and experience but he also adds the perfect amount of compassion which helped me tremendously thru a very stressful, trying time in my life. He is absolutely fluent in every aspect of the law pertaining to Divorce,Family and Child custody. I have recommended Alex and will continue to do so . It has been ten years since my divorce was finalized and I again thank "The Man".

Alex successfully represented me through several child custody and support actions, including an appeal. He's an expert, shrewd and assertive trial attorney who is meticulous in his detail prep with a superior knowledge of the law.

Above all else, Alex was concerned for my well being post divorce. he fought for my financial concerns to the end. I found him an intelligent and sharp legal representative, who constantly was reviewing documents and briefs for my benefit. I wish him the best.

I am finally reaching the end of a nearly seven year divorce. My son was almost four when the divorce started and he was my primary concern. I went from one attorney to another, seven in total, hoping to find one who cared. Sadly I came to the conclusion that it is impossible to defend your own interests including that of your own family.
I actually interviewed Alex Potruch but passed him over. I am not sure why. All I can say is that I came back to Alex, where I finally found some peace. Peace because I could rest at night knowing he was honest and trustworthy, he actually did fight for his client and the facts. He cared about the ramifications of the divorce on my son and me.
The facts were always overwhelmingly in my favor but it never seemed to make a difference til Alex took over my case. Previously I felt the attorneys simply had their eye on what they wanted to take and used what I call “legal theatrics” to make it their own. It is a very helpless feeling knowing what is going on yet not being able to stop it. Alex has put a stop to that.

Mr. Alexander Potruch represented me in a very embittered divorced that lasted for many years. He was the ultimate professional, knowledgeable and accomplished attorney who was well versed and proficient in the complicated mechanics and procedures of the court systems.
Unlike other attorneys, he was very receptive to hear my own methods in dealing with certain issues, and was extremely respectful even when we disagreed.
As there were serious custody issues at risk, he never took his eyes of the goal of getting the optimum results for my children’s best welfare.
All things being equal, he always chose the path which would minimize my own trauma and always concerned himself with minimizing his fees, (which were always fair and never inflated).
Divorce, especially when it concerns not only one’s own welfare but also those of minor children, is never going to be without stress to say the least, and to have someone like Mr. Potruch represent me is as best as you can get.
He is respected by his peers as well as adversaries as a clear thinking, honest and extremely skilled lawyer and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Handled my divorce with kindness, no vitriol and always looked for the solution without expensive litigation. Creative, and not tied to the inside favors culture--works for his client's good. Old School and solid. what lawyers used to be, and should be. A profession, not a business. he is a professional.

During the most difficult time of my life Alex was there. Many times he told me things that i didn't want to hear but needed to. I owe alot to Alex. He was there for me day and night (we know how messy divorces can be) . Ultimatly every time we went to court he told me exactly what would happen. I wound up with custody of my children which is what i wanted and was most important to me. The man is a class act and i highly recommended him.

I could write a book based on the life lessons learned from Mr. Potruch, whose vast wealth of knowledge and experience (not to mention his kind and careful guidance) were instrumental in successfully establishing custodial rights for my child. Initially recommended by two prominent NYC-based attorneys, Mr. Potruch went out of his way to set up time-sensitive initial consultation at his Garden City office. He immediately set about prepping for first Family Court appearance a week later. One soon learns that, like a chess master, this seasoned pro is constantly thinking several steps ahead. His attention to detail is second to none, navigating the passage through what is an undeniably stressful experience. Listening is key when working with Mr. Potruch, however he also hears all. Further, his hands-on experience in the Family Court provides exceptional clarity. In short, he knows who's-who and what's what. After an intense period of pre-trial preparation (included excellent EBT), Mr. Potruch was outstanding in the courtroom. Never bombastic or unnecessarily outspoken, he is clearly a most judicious speaker. In dealing with the judge (& second), Mr. Potruch was a total pro, direct and savvy, always perfect timing. He also excelled in interacting with opposing counsel - firm and straight to the point but never controversial. His cross-examination work was second to none. In short, Mr. Potruch kept to his word, provided a most satisfactory result, and has continued to be extremely supportive. Bottom line, this is an attorney who cares and delivers...worth every penny, as they say. Can't recommend highly enough...
