Phyllis is an excellent attorney. She understands the process, both family court and divorce court thoroughly. She was patient, empathetic and always available. She explained everything along the way and fought for me. I am grateful to have found her. Divorce is a terrible situation to endure, but with the right attorney it makes it much less painful. Phyllis is all that & more.

Phyllis Bookspan was compassionate and supportive throughout my divorce proceedings. While she consistently gave great advice and made recommendations on process and decisions, she gave me the room to make the final call and was consistently supportive. My recent divorce would not have been as simple had Phyllis not been on my side. I highly recommend Phyllis Bookspan as a professional and caring attorney.

I recently needed an attorney to help me. My experience in the past with other attorney’s was very negative, until I met Miss Bookspan. She is professional, organized, and does her homework. She takes the time to know the facts and presents them to the judge impressively. Another thing that I would like to mention about Miss Bookspan, she made sure our case was one of the first cases to hear. She knew that we were concerned about cost and she made sure that the court time was cut in half.
I can say, without a doubt, if you need an attorney, call her. You will not be sorry. Her work, and the way she handled everything about our case was with a high degree of excellence.
