The man with the plan
I first met Lloyd in 2005 when my parents asked that he represent me in my court proceedings. Needless to say his represention paved the way to how my life has turned out now 10 years later! He treated me as if I were his son which is a rare trait to find these days and helped put my parents mind at ease with making the perfect decision in selecting his representation. I am now owner of a start up clothing company and mainly have him to thank for this success !

Compassionate, Effective, Experienced Counsel
At the beginning of the pandemic, my brother was arrested while in the throes of a mental health crisis. Mr. Malech was assigned as my brother’s Public Defender and provided thoughtful, empathetic and effective counsel throughout the legal proceedings. The case was not an easy one. My brother has struggled with chronic mental health issues for almost thirty years and due to the pandemic, there were new constraints surrounding hearings and attorney-client communication. The case was further complicated by competency issues that seemed insurmountable. Mr. Malech was so generous with his time listening and learning about my brother’s history and the manifestation of his illness. He treated my brother’s case as an important matter and was always considerate of his humanity. He was instrumental in helping my brother gain the insight that allowed him to regain competency and provided compassionate and pragmatic guidance and advocacy every step along the way. As a family, we were so fortunate to have Lloyd Malech as my brother’s attorney. My brother is safely back at home and receiving the support that he needs to protect his mental health. I am grateful for Mr. Malech’s service to my brother every day and recommend his practice to anyone in need of a skilled, experienced and compassionate attorney.

Hard working, quick on his feet, dedicated
I was a Summer Associate with Mr. Malech the summer after my first year of law school. While working together, I witnessed firsthand how dedicated he is to his clients and how much he is dedicated to doing the right thing. He will work tirelessly until the job is done and done right. He is a kind person with a great sense of humor. He knows the law like the back of his hand and is very quick on his feet. I learned a lot from him.

Caring and Knowledgeable
Lloyd truly cares about his clients. I worked for Lloyd on some cases and witnessed how skillful he was. in personal injury, family law and general litigation matters. Thereafter, I hired him (not via Avvo) to handle a DUI case for a family member, and he got the sentence reduced. Great lawyer!

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Malech is extremely knowledgeable and was able to make me feel comfortable with a process I know little about. He worked very hard for me and and my family and we are all very satisfied with the outcome of our case. Despite how many clients he has I feel that he takes time to get to know me and I have always felt that he made me a top priority.

Great lawyer; you won't be disappointed!
It's hard to find a good lawyer, esp. when there are so many mediocre ones out there. But Mr. Malech exceeded all of my expectations. I provided him a full explanation of my issue, he explained the entire process in detail, provided me with timely updates, and had the issue settled favorably for me very quickly despite this summer being marked by the covid shutdown, much to my surprise. Skip the guessing game of hiring an unknown attorney, and go with him with full confidence that you managed to find good representation.

I highly recommend!
I highly recommend this lawyer! He was very helpful in my divorce and custody case, he is very reasonable, knowledgeable, pays attention to details and has a lot of experience. He took my case and prepared for an emergency hearing on a very short notice (literally over a weekend), has offered great advice on obtaining a CPO and negotiating a separation agreement. I very much appreciate his professionalism and help.

Sharp, informed, understanding advocate.
Lloyd handled my divorce with concern and personal service. He was efficient and was knowledgeable about some sticky issues. He also was very understanding while I was going through some very difficult personal circumstances. He was knowledgable, adept and well respected at the courthouse. Not only do I highly recommend him in general, but I have already recommended him to a close friend who is currently using his services.

Highly Recommended Domestic and Family Law Attorney
I first met Mr. Malech several years ago when he helped me with a domestic matter. He was professional, skilled and amazing to work with. He was result oriented and he got me everything I could have wished for. I cannot recommend anyone more than Mr. Malech. If you ever really need a good lawyer, you got to call Mr. Malech.

Review for Lloyd
Lloyd is an honest attorney that has a sound understanding of the system. Lloyd was fair and honest when assessing my situation and even though his opinions were not always what I hoped to hear, he maintained his integrity and tact when having those tough conversations.
