I hired Mr. Ketover for my divorce. Mr. Ketover really knows the law and is very compassionate and caring. He is always readily available. He is very honest and really cares about his clients. My divorce is still on going and he is fighting for me to get everything I am entitled to by law. I highly recommend Mr. Ketover!

Great and very caring Lawyer
Josh and his firm have been representing me for the past 12 years. During this time I not only have they done an amazing job legally but have always been there to personally help me through these difficult times. I have received incredible advice that always steered me in the right direction even when different advice could have made them more money. They have even reached out just to see how things were going with me and my family. They are all amazing people who truly care about their clients. I strongly recommend this firm for all of your legal needs.

You will not find a better lawyer, or more amazing human-being.
I'm so thankful to have been referred to Josh by 2 other close friends who have used him, and also had successful outcomes on both occasions. He is exceedingly knowledgable in what he does, upfront, honest, genuine, and will not nickel and dime you everytime you blink. He has replied to every stitch of communication presented by myself, the opposing lawyer or courts in an expeditious fashion. You will never wait long for a reply from him, whether it be a text, email or phone call, his communication skills are simply impeccable. I cant say enough good things about him, the man just has a talent unmatched by any other lawyer I've come across in the past. Josh will not steer you in the wrong direction. He is an overall amazing human-being, I'm really the lucky one to have had him take my custody case, and on short notice.

Teddy bear or bulldog?!?
Josh is extremely determined and knowledgable and will fight for what is right but has a warm and friendly "bed-side manner" always making me feel secure in his ability. He was always 10 steps ahead of the case which was a big relief.

No one better!
I met Josh and had the pleasure of hiring his firm about five years ago. At first he represented me, any my company, in corporate and real estate matters. The personal approach he, and his staff, take is extremely rare and became truly evident during an unexpected criminal investigation. Josh not only made me feel confident in his legal approach but he worked around the clock to ensure the best possible outcome. Highly recommended!

Great lawyer, great person
If there were 6 stars that's what I'd give Josh. Not only is he there for you 24/7/365 but he treats you like an old friend, not just another client. I have used him for personal and for business and he 's great either way, hence why I keep coming back! If you want a lawyer who treats you like a person and not another number, this is where you need to go.

The Best
Josh Is simply the best most compassionate attorney I have ever dealt with. We had a custody case that was very complicated and complex. He was there every step of the way for us and got done exactly what we needed from a custody standpoint. He worked very hard to get the results he told us we would get and he didn't let up until we got there. Josh kept in touch with us on a daily basis to keep us in the loop and informed with the workings of our case. If you need an attorney you need to use Josh!!!

The Best lawyer !!
When Mr. Ketover took my case he was very helpful and didn’t do anything that I didn’t approve of. He was very confident, diligent and knowledgeable of the courts, judges. I was happy with lawyer that was straight forward, honest, always in control of the case and knew his stuff. He worked out dismissal of my case so strong that opposite side would not appeal I was extremely happy with the result! He worked hard from the very first moment he was my lawyer. I strongly recommend Josh Ketover to anyone that needs legal representation. Thank You!!

Personal injury with passion and professionalism
Josh Ketover helped our family through an unfortunate personal injury case. He clearly outlined our options and made our decisions easy to choose. His personal attention, passion, and professionalism exceeded our expectations. We were awarded a judgement that was much greater than we had ever anticipated. Josh performed his job impeccably from the moment we met him through the close of our case.

Business owner
As a business owner I am always in need of a strong legal representation. And to come across someone like Mr Ketover is RARE. In an climate where attorneys are more worried about "running the clock" then they are about giving there clients there moneys worth, Mr Ketover is by and large a rare find. He is knowledgeable, trustworthy, honorable, and AFFORDABLE! He is a truly a great find and I am certain to use him for many years to come.

An Outstanding Attorney
Joshua Ketover is an excellent attorney. What makes him different from other attorneys and stand out is the type of person he is and how he runs his business. He is an exceptional man. I had a legal matter come up during a very difficult time for me personally. I was very upset and started looking up attorneys on the internet. His name came up. I called his office on a Saturday and left a message. Within an hour or less I received a call from Mr. Ketover who calmed me down, asked me to send him the paperwork, and then told me to call his office on Monday morning. Monday morning I called his office and was given an appt. for Tuesday morning. When I went to his office on Tuesday morning, I was greeted by the receptionist and ushered into the conference room. Mr. Ketover came into the room and he explained to me in great detail what the legal paperwork meant and put forth several different ways to handle the situation. He took his time and allowed me to ask him quite a few questions and did not rush me. He also was respectful of my decision in terms of how I decided to handle the matter and offered to help in any way he could. Mr. Ketover's advice assisted me in coming to the correct solution for my legal matter. I would recommend him to anyone who needed attorney. He is an excellent lawyer and an asset to the community.

I wouldn't think twice about referring him as I have in the past.
