Perfect balance of tough and effective!
I retained Wendy through a recommendation from a close personal friend. I thought I wanted a "pit bull" but after I hired Wendy I realized, I needed someone that would fight for my rights without destroying my relationship with my soon to be ex-husband and blowing through all of our money. What I needed was someone who was firm and effective not "aggressive" and that is exactly what I got when I hired Wendy. I worked with her, and Anna Rusanov in her office. They advocated for me and my children and got me a settlement which I was extremely pleased with and did so without trashing my ex.

Ultimate professional
As an executive, I have worked with many attorneys. Wendy Samuelson was the ultimate professional. She explained the law and her strategy in a way that was easy for me to understand and for me to make the best decisions for my family. I was dealing with a completely unreasonable spouse, and made an offer to settle that was better than what I ultimately had to pay after a trial. So, I was very satisfied with the results. Ms. Samuelson's approach was no-nonsense and compassionate. She always returned phone calls same day, which has not been my experience with other lawyers. Even when she was away on vacation, her partner knew exactly what was going on in my case, and picked up where she left off- it was seamless. I have recommended Ms. Samuelson to my friends who needed a top divorce attorney.
