I found Andrew through a recommendation from a friend. At that time I had spent the better part of the previous year attempting to go through a mediator. Once the agreement was supposedly finished I had an attorney review it and I was told that I had gotten the worst deal they had ever seen. So I went on the hunt and found Andrew.
From the start Andrew was professional knowledgeable and cared about me as a person. I had what should of been a simple case. Unfortunately my case became complicated purely by the opposing party but Andrew turned the negative into a positive.
Andrew is a pure professional he guided me through the most difficult process one can go through. He advised me on all topics every step of the way. He never rushed me and always took time to explain things to me. Even during the times where it seemed the end was nowhere in sight and books where stacked against me Andrew remained positive. More importantly he kept me focused and my eye towards the end goal. In the end I realize this is the most important trait in a divorce attorney.
Andrew got me excellent results. I wound up with a very comprehensive stipulation agreement without having to go through a lengthy trial. I was and still am ecstatic about the results he provided. The stipulation has proven to not be legal jargon but has helped me in every real time situation I have faced thus far.
Andrew was extremely understanding during the billing process. In NO WAY billed me just to bill. I found him immensely sympathetic to my situation. There were numerous times where he guided me to decisions that helped me save on legal fees. Those type of ethics are simply not present in the legal profession today.
I not only recommend Andrew here, I have also recommended him to family and friends in need of his services. I believe you will not find a better more professional and knowledgeable attorney in this field.

Andrew Blum has been my lawyer since 4/07. Two years in matermanal suprere court, ten months on trial for custody, Andrew Blums knowledge,and patience got me through this experience. It ended with me recieving full custody and all decision makeing for the children. I've been back to court between family and supreme, post judgement, eight times, all of which have been dissmised thanks to Andrew Blums abilities as a excellent lawyer. My case has been a great undertaking considering the many crazy accusations in both courts my x-husband has falsely accused me of. Andrew has always explained everything to me so I can understand the legal terms. I have already sent him a good friend of mine who he has also taken good care of. I would recommend him highly to all.
