Jill Stone and her associates, especially Melissa, became like a part of our family. They are two of the most understanding, brilliant, sincere women I have ever met. Jill took on a big case for me at first because it was a jurisdiction issue. She went above and beyond and helped find me an attorney in Pennsylvania and then kept up with the other attorney until she won me jurisdiction in New York. Jill was honest with me and always kept me informed. She took the time in the rest of the year and half long custody battle to make sure what was best for my son happened. Jill and Melissa we're confident and spoke amazing in front of the judge. She was thorough and guided me the whole way with patience and compassion as it was a hard time for my family and I. After Jill won us jurisdiction she made sure we settled on exactly what was best for my son and I for the present and the future. Never for a second did I doubt her and her abilities as my attorney.
Ms. Stone was hired as the attorney for the children for my divorce. She showed too much sympathy for my ex wife and didn't even focus on the best interest of her clients
( the children). At times, I felt like my ex-wife had two attorney's. My case dragged on for years and she allowed my ex (mommy) to use the children as pawns in the divorce. I finally was able to get a trial which was when Ms. Stone started to pay attention to how disturbing my ex's behavior can be. Now I have a great relationship with my children because I fought until the court would listen. Ms. Stone could have saved her clients a lot of lost time from their father and emotional stress if she acted swifter and sooner. I cannot recommend Ms. Stone to represent the best interests of your children. It would appear Ms. Stone may be best suitable at representing mother's.
I was recommended to Jill Stone and wound up being handed off to her lackey, Melissa Young. Neither did anything for me. She was constantly kidding around with my ex's attorney and most of the time, I didn't know whose side she was on. At first, she made it seem like I was in good hands because she was a working mother and both of the judges in our case (we had complaints in front of two separate judges) were both working mothers...(did I mention I was brought to court by my ex because I had to go back to work?) Anyway, I wound up settling on a lot of stuff out of court because I was not the least bit confident in her ability to win my case and I was deathly afraid of losing my children. Plus, it has been seven months since the papers were signed and I still have yet to see some of the money my ex owes me. Ms. Young keeps telling me there is a back-up in the court system...b.s. - I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. All bark and no bite!
