Working together with Mr. Raxenberg as co-counsel is an absolute pleasure
I have had the pleasure of working together as co-counsel with Mr. Raxenberg on several contested matrimonial matters. In these cases and otherwise, I have known Mr. Raxenberg to zealously advocate for his clients. He exemplifies professionalism in every respect and is well regarded in the legal community for his competency, fairness, and integrity. He is a proficient and accomplished litigator and maintains a reputation for his distinctive ability to work together with his clients, as a team, to analyze issues and formulate a resolution or plan of action that is consistently tailored to the client’s needs and best interests. He is unfailingly responsive and diligent. The clients that we have worked with together have commented positively with regard to his fervent advocacy, empathy, and attentiveness to their concerns. I have found him to be an absolute joy to work with.

Jay is an excellent lawyer
I am very pleased with my experience with Jay Raxenberg. He is affordable, patient and intelligent. He made me feel like he was my friend who had my best interest when it pertained to my family needs. He made himself available anytime I needed to ask a question about my case. I like the fact I didn’t have to go through his associates or secretary. That made me very comfortable and confident that he would handle my case genuinely. I would recommend him to anyone who ask for a family law attorney. Thank you jay. You’re the best !!!!

Thanks Jay !
Divorce is hard, confusing and emotional. Jay takes the time to understand your situation, and guides you through the entire process. I've found Jay to be knowledgeable, fair, compassionate and extremely quick to respond to my questions and concerns.

Jay Raxenberg Top Choice
Jay has been more than a hired professional during my divorce proceedings; he is a confidant, a trusted advisor, at times a friend, and a bulldog when necessary. He treated my daughter and I with respect and fought for our best interests. He also guided me through the difficult process with patience and diligence and made himself available whevever I had questions or concerns. Most importantly, I felt confident and safe that Jay would ensure my daughter and I would be protected during a turbulent and frightening time in our lives. I highly recommend Jay Raxenberg for family court and divorce proceedings.

My best investment
When I first came to Jay Raxenberg about my divorce I was very stressed out and nervous, but Jay quickly put me at ease and restored my sense of hope and confidence in my future. He listened to me, asked relevant questions, answered all of my questions thoroughly, and explained my legal rights to me clearly. I hired Jay in September 2014, and ever since then Jay has always responded to all of my phone messages and e-mails immediately. I feel well taken care of and I feel extremely fortunate to be represented by him. Jay understands my needs very well and he cares about me. With Jay, I feel that I got more than I ever expected because I have gained a competent lawyer, a personal advocate, a tough negotiator, and a trustworthy friend. I would highly recommend Jay Raxenberg.

100% the best and smartest decision I made was retaining Jay!
I retained Jay toward the end of my divorce proceedings after going to numerous court appearances with my first attorney who was awful. My case should have been an easy one, however it was completely mishandled from the start. My first attorney was inexperienced, could not read the judge, and my case suffered miserably because of it. Jay was recommended to me by a friend and my only regret is not retaining him in the first place. Jay's awesome personality and demeanor, combined with a quick mind and tongue, wins him favor among the judges and other attorneys. I can't thank him enough. I truly believe the outcome of my proceedings would have been terrible had I not switched attorneys. His fees were completely reasonable and he didn't tack on unnecessary extras to boost up the bill like my first attorney had done. Friends had told me having a great attorney is everything and they were right. Thank you Jay, for everything!

One of the best divorce attorneys on Long Island
There are really no words to describe my experience with Mr Raxenberg, except excellent. Jay is an incredible attorney, well versed on all divorce legal procedures. Jay worked very hard to ensure that I got the best representation, and he will do the same for you if you retain his services. Jay was available as much as I needed him, and answered all my questions. Jay is very professional, fair minded, and just. I consider him not only a great attorney, I consider Jay a great friend.

There are no one word that would sum up my experience with Jay. He is amazing!!!!! He means what he says and does what he says. He kept me in the loop about everything. He handled my custody case as well as my child support case and all went well and as planned. He is always well prepared and professional. He is always available and will always try and answer any questions you have. He made me feel like part of a family. He cared about me and my daughter. It was a tough time and Jay sought me through and will continue to see me through. There is no price for the amount of work he puts into his cases. I absolutely know that I was not his only case but he made me feel like I was the only and only one on this planet me and my daughter. He takes his time to understand your past, present, and future!!! He makes a plan with you and is very clear with realistic goals. I would recommend him to everyone who is looking for an amazing lawyer, friend and person.

Excellent for Child Custody Case
I did a lot of research online when searching for a lawyer to handle my custody case. I came across Jay and spoke with him and I didn't trust anyone else to do the job. He was helpful and supportive from the beginning to the end. He answered all of my questions and explained everything clearly and always got back to me in a timely manner. He was extremely easy to talk to. Jay is very knowledgable in his field of work. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to help me rightfully win full custody of my child. I would highly reccommend him to anyone going through a similar situation.

Tough, Considerate, Responsive,
Jay's primary focus is to make sure that my interests were completely, and fairly represented. He became my trusted advisor, often advising me against being vengeful, and focusing me on getting the divorce done, without amassing excessive attorney's fees. His best quality, is his ability to listen, and absorb what I said to him, and use it to bring the divorce to an amicable close. What I appreciated most was his constant reminder of whether I was spending my money wisely, or not. Thanks Jay.

What A Special Lawyer
I first contacted Jay after being referred to him by a friend who was going thru a bad divorce . My friend had sworn by Jay who helped him get custody of his son in a case that was being handled in family court. I was told Jay would be there for me and walk me thru the legal process I knew nothing about. I hired Jay to draw up a pre nuptial agreement between myself and my future bride. Jay was outstanding in every aspect of this agreement from start to finish. Jay drafted the agreement and I have to say that when Jay dealt with my future wife's attorney he was professional,straight forward and fair. I priced this service out ahead of time and jay's fees were also very reasonable. I really hope nobody ever needs a family court lawyer or divorce attorney but if you do Jay RAXENBERG is the only attorney I would hire.

Evaluation by Client
Mr. Raxenberg is a very professional,reliable, and dedicated attorney. He is highly competent in his area of expertise in addition to being a very personable attorney. He is always willing to work around his client's schedule which is a rare quality these days. I had initially received counselling from another attorney however I did not realize the adequate services I am entitled to until Mr. Raxenberg started representing me. In my personal case the defendant is very unreasonable and highly uncooperative. I truly believe that only an attorney like Mr.Raxenberg could have handled such a difficult situation and I am very grateful to him for his support and valuable counselling.

Jay answered his phone everytime I called him.
Jay represented me in my divorce and he did an excellent job. Jay knows how the court system works and as long as you follow his advise you will be happy with the outcome of your divorce. Jay gave me his complete attention whenever I called him, met with him and especially in the court room. Jay not only knew my case inside and out but he also took the time to get to know me personally as well as other members of my family.
