Exceptional people providing exceptional service
Beth Lockhart was recommended to me by another attorney, his words were “She is aggressive, exceptionally intelligent in her craft and not an easy attorney to have to face in the court room” The Lockhart law team is truly top notch! Beth’s professional candor and exceptional knowledge of the legal system within the state of NY is and was paramount in the matter they assisted me and my family with. This team handles a large work load of cases and although at times responses were delayed due to other obligations ultimately all questions were answered, guidance was appropriately given and advice/recommendations were spot on and without question the right way to approach my case. When you hire this team, you are hiring an aggressive, responsive, assertive and fair force; they will take any and all information you have gathered, suggest more things to gather and help put all of that information into a context that makes sense and is irrefutably the truth within the matter you are pursuing. Good legal teams cost good money, if you have a case and this team decides they want to represent you and assist in your efforts to win you have struck a legal gold mine… I will forever be grateful for Beth’s efforts and attention to detail and for her unwavering dedication to ensuring what was in my child’s bests interests was heard and seen.

The Best Upstate New York has to offer
Beth is by far the best attorney i have ever encountered, let alone represent me. She took what was a seemingly impossible case and even i was astonished at what she managed to accomplish for child and I. I live 800 miles away from where i had to be represented. Anytime i have to be represented in upstate New York, Beth will be my first and only call. She is a very passionate attorney, and will accomplish what needs to be done. Thank you Beth, Joe

Prepared, Straight Forward, and consistent
Beth has been an asset in our current custody battle. She is always prepared when we are in court and always citing case law to further fight our side. Beth is an incredible attorney and has given us optimism in father's rights. Will never use anyone else!

Excellent
Beth represented me in my custody case, and she worked very hard and tirelessly to get the most fair outcome for me and my kids. She fights very hard for her clients, whether it's for custody or not. I am very grateful for having her as my attorney.

Attorney at its best.
Beth made sure my husband was well taken care of for his custody case for my step daughter. We got what we needed and she answered any questions we had and responds in a timely manner. She’s one of the best attorneys I have ever encountered. During trial, she was well prepared. She cares so much for her clients and she’s so transparent. Definitely recommend!!

Great Lawyer
Beth Lockhart was recommended to me by a friend. Subsequently I was represented by her during my divorce and she made the stressful and difficult process much easier. Her depth of knowledge of family law is quite extensive and she was attentive to my situation and was responsive to my questions, calls and emails. I have recommended her to other members of my family and she has always provided great service in a timely manner.

Petition for full custody
Attorney Beth Lockhart was amazing and went above and beyond for myself, it was a long journey with being in and out of family court fighting for my rights as my daughters father, I gave up hope for awhile and then I found Attorney Beth Lockhart, she showed my fiance and I that fathers do have rights and can be made a priorty in your childs life. End result, we one full custody of my daughter, and we all couldnt be happier, she is happy and healthy and striving in school and loves having the two of us in her life full time.

Fathers advocate
Attorney Lockhart took my case on after I had issues with my previous attorney, she quickly moved into the case at hand and went to work as if she was there from the start. Attorney Lockhart listened to me, believed in me and fought hard to see that a fathers voice would be heard in the stereotypical judicial one sidedness. She is an amazing attorney and definitely a force to be reckoned with in the judicial community. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking for a fathers advocate attorney.

Beth was instrumental in creating a document which suited both of us!
I retained Beth to take over where the first attorney I hired had failed. The first attorney was incapable of creating a document which I could live with and my estranged wife would accept! Beth created a Legal Separation with No Contest and Opt Out of the one year interval. It was signed by my estranged wife and I am now officially divorced! Thanks Beth

Excellent experience
Beth is the easiest person to work with and knows exactly what she is doing. Upon receiving my ticket, she assured me that she would take care of it and I didn’t have to worry. She is the type of lawyer you want to keep on speed dial. She is efficient and gets the job done promptly! I would recommended her to everyone.

A Tireless and Expert Attorney - The Best of the Best!
Beth is truly an amazing and effective attorney. As a father involved in a divorce with an extremely difficult spouse who did everything in thier power to alienate me from my children, Beth supported my case at 110% - thus getting me joint custody and regular visitation to my children. She never gives up and is an expert in her field. Beth is persistent and knows exactly what works and what doesn't in the court room. Her dedication and endless energy is a true blessing to me and anyone fortunate enough to have her at their side. Beth is informative and responsive to all my inquiries. She is super-human and there are no words that can express my gratitude for her services.

Sassy Pitbull
Absolute pleasure to work with. I had the same issue with my ex-wife as the previous review except it was my son. Bogus cell phone numbers, text supposively from my son, sent cards and messages with no response. Ex-wife pretty much poisoned my son against me and unaware he emancipated himself from me. We won the case but it was bittersweet, I hope one day my son will will learn the truth and want to have a father son relationship with me. Beth was a god send, she knows her stuff and follows through, does not let anyone step on her toes or her clients. We should have many more Attorneys like her representing "The Good Guys"!!

She's the Viper - Ready to strike
I needed an attorney that knew all aspects of child support in New York and what it would take to terminate my child support because my daughter was poisoned by my ex-wife and refused to have a relationship with me. I lost my daughter because of my ex-wife and my ex-wife took pleasure in knowing she destroyed what was a super close relationship to I'm calling the cops if you ever try to contact me again. Well, we went to court and my daughter was encouraged to put on a show by my ex-wife and her man hating attorney that when the decision was in my favor no more support to support the ex-wife who destroyed my relationship with my daughter Iwas happy but at the same time saddened by what my ex-wife did to my daughter. The good news is that two years have passed since I had any contact with her and now she's back in my life.
