4.5 stars 20 totalReview Brian Pearlstein
Posted by MSR
I am from India. I did not know anything about US law system. My daughter is a US citizen. I was represented by Mr Brian Pearlstein and Ms Maureen Renehan- Brodsky, Renehan, Pearlstein & Bouquet chartered.
My case was very complicated- custody battle for my daughter which was going on for 5 years. When my brother first suggested Mr Pearlstein to me, I was very apprehensive if anybody would really understand my situation . Not only did Mr Pearlstein and Maureen understand what was going on they made sure that everybody in the court room did.
As I was in India, I went to US only for the trial which was 12 months later after the case was first filed in the court. They had to cross many hurdles even before the trail without my presence in the court. They were always prompt with answering all my questions and concerns, supported me emotionally and were always there for me. He was always very quick to respond, made himself available during times that most would consider after hours.
I cannot thank them enough. Mr Pearstein was brilliant and outstanding in the court. In the courtroom he is incredibly prepared and organised. His advice and guidance, I believe, helped shape my case into a much stronger one. I appreciate all the efforts they put into my case and helped me get the custody of my daughter.
They are a great team and you would be very fortunate to have them represent you!

I hired Mr. Pearlstein after a thorough research and careful consideration. His AVVO reviews were raving and he appeared knowledgeable and well-respected. Once the attorney was retained, my case was without my consent passed on to a junior attorney with Mr. Pearlstein only overviewing their work. At several important hearings, Mr. Pearlsten was not present and passed my Court representation to one of the partners, unfamiliar with my case, which resulted in poor outcomes. I received conflicting information and advice from the junior attorney that differed from that of Mr. Pearlstein. There seemed to be no orderly flow in the way the case was being prepared for and some of the important strategies were omitted and short cuts taken. The ball was dropped on the case "homework" that was not completed in a timely manner and as a result, important expert witness testimony was omitted from the trial. What started out as a no brainer of a family law case that Mr. Pearlstein indicated he felt very confident about, ended up as a pitiful defeat, for which Mr. Pearlstein accepted no responsibility. If you are looking for strong representation in a family case, don't count on this firm. At the end of the day, you will be left with a sky high bill and a lost case. Once the case is done, you become no more then a billing number.

Brian consistently demonstrates the highest ethics. He does not seek to undermine or undercut the opposition; he will represent you with the utmost integrity. You can be certain he will work to advocate for the best results for you and your children. The first concern he had the entire time he worked for me was for my daughter's well-being and her best interests. He is knowledgeable and acts with great insight and wisdom.

There is seriously NO ONE else I would want on my side of the table or courtroom than Mr. Pearlstein. Please do not mistake his demeanor as detached. I have no doubt he has been fully engaged throughout his service as my attorney. I respect his ethics and his conduct. He is not there to be my friend, and that is how it should be. He does his job, and does it well with and unemotional sense of what is appropriate and what his client can handle. He will NOT push a client to do what he knows they cannot do. But he will advise them well on strategies for future consideration. You may have to give a little today, in order to come back later and fight harder when you CAN.
THAT is what makes him outstanding.

Brian Pearlstein (BRP Family Law) earned my highest possible recommendation by clearly out-performing the stellar reputation that preceded him. He was nothing short of spectacular from every aspect imaginable. The whole matter was handled with the utmost class, professionalism and sensitivity. Brian devised a comprehensive winning strategy, was always very well prepared, and executed flawlessly. This all resulted in a tremendous outcome for my children and me, while minimizing billing throughout the process. I could not have been more pleased with Brian, his staff, and the result!

He did an excellent job with my divorce and then handled the case when I needed complete custody of my son

Felt he was a little distant in my case. Not fully engaged. I feel he encouraged me to settle when we should have proceeded.

Brian Pearlstein represented me through a lengthy, contentious divorce. My ex-wife was trying to avoid a settlement and divorce at all costs, and she dug in her heels, obstructed, and delayed at every step of the way. Before giving the case to Brian, I spent a year trying to work out an amicable settlement with her and got nowhere. Once I gave Brian the case, he kept up a steady flow of paperwork to my ex and her lawyer, moved the case along as fast as the courts would permit, and ultimately brought my ex to the settlement table and finalized the divorce.
Brian is a big-picture person. He knows when to yield lesser points and where to dig in and stand firm. He was direct and honest about what was or wasn’t worth contesting. He was able to juggle lots of variables and spot the right time to do a deal. He also did whatever he could to contain costs at every step of the way.
When I had to move cross-country halfway through the process, we continued to manage the process by email, phone and FedEx without a hitch. If I had a query for Brian, I could count on a response within a few hours. Brian was also able to put me in contact with other local professionals as needed, such as a broker to handle a long-distance distressed sale of real estate as part of the property split.
Brian Pearlstein is experienced and effective, and I couldn’t have asked for a better advocate through a challenging and painful process.

Brian and his firm does excellent work. He has been very responsive and have been able to thoroughly answer my questions. When I walked into his office for our first meeting, I was completely frustrated and distraught. It's not easy to take being accused of something that you know is a complete and fabricated lie for monetary gain. After talking with Brian I was completely relieved and at ease. He explained my situation from a legal standpoint and gave me enough information during our first meeting that enabled me to workout a strategy to protect myself.
I would use him again and I would highly recommend him.

Brian Pearlstein represented me through a painful and complicated divorce that included custody, complex finances, and assets including businesses. Through the entire process he explained with clarity the legal issues and the law, and helped me define goals to navigate the divorce and then stabilize and build the next part of my life.
He told me what was realistic or not, attainable or not. He definitely advocated for me and what I deserved. He was compassionate while negotiating custody issues and arrangements. He obtained excellent results through both negotiation and litigation and protected my and my children's financial future.
It was extremely comforting to have Mr. Pearlstein and his team in my corner during what was a lonely, hurtful, scary process. My divorce was long and Mr. Pearlstein stayed the course with unparalleled professionalism, yet with empathy. His patience is unending. His commitment to his client is stellar. I feel I couldn't have gotten through it without him. If anyone told me they were in need of a divorce attorney I would immediately say one name: Brian Pearlstein.
