Elliot Zisser has provided my young children and myself with the absolute best service and support throughout the most difficult time for our family. He understood the context of a character disordered ex-spouse very sharply and early (first time I met him, first words spoken) before even I could grasp the concept, or any professional, which has made the complete difference as I was in a very abused place emotionally, physically, and materially. Elliot Zisser has stood for the truth and the peace for us all as only my father could have done. He has put his professionalism, his extensive experience, his knowledge of the local court, judge and attorneys (numerous on my ex-spouse side: hired and fired one after the other) his honesty and his time at very hard work to try and negotiate consents every opportunity possible -and there were many, and to pick and choose my battles wisely in court, to win each and every court hearing throughout a more than a year long divorce, including a relocation divorce trial to my home country with our young children. Elliot Zisser has been extensively compassionate and respectful to myself and all of the hurt I have been going through, to our loving children children, to their other parent and his family even when their behavior did not deserve his respect. Mr. Zisser has worked to craft the best possible opportunity for positive parenting for our children with both of us their parents in our situation. Mr. Zisser has always been available to provide the best advice in each and every situation: safety, financial crises, or parenting problems through emails, phone calls, and coworkers checking-in as well. Mr. Zisser has always let the truth come out through court proceedings and social investigation and has always checked with me what the most important points I wanted to defend for our children were.
His office is a pleasure to work with, all are absolutely professional and work impeccably, on top of being very supportive throughout such difficulties.
I respect Mr. Zisser's life saving work for our family, and am forever grateful for the outcomes and possibilities for healing and rebuilding in peace.

Elliot Zisser represented me during my divorce. He was referred to me by several trusted friends. And he did not disappoint. He devised a creative ending to the proceeding that was tremendously clever. My future independence was solidified through his abilities. I would highly recommend Mr. Zisser to anyone looking for an Ace in the hand.

I could not be any happier by the support, constant availability, professionalism displayed by Elliot and his staff. This was a rather high profile divorce that spanned over 16 years from start to finish. Elliot took over this case due to the untimely death of our previous attorney. He brought successful resolution in just over 6 months.

Unfortunately I went through a very difficult divorce that took more than two years to resolve. Elliot during the entire process guided me on how to walk through the process in stages. He was very diligent in the preparation of the case along with never over promising on the outcomes. At times he was very candid about my expectations as well as the importance of being cooperative with my ex-spouse for the benefit of the children. In the final analysis, Elliot was able to create a very good outcome that was equitable for both parties. He still remains a friend as well as a confidant. I would strongly recommend Elliot.

Because of a very contested divorce which included two children and a very profitable business, I worked with Elliot for nearly four years. The case was extremely intricate in nature based on the business and how heavily contested my ex was related to our children. Elliot, fought for me the entire time and was professional, compassionate, stayed very late one evening in mediation being late to a ticketed event. While I hope and pray I never go through a divorce again, if I did, I wouldn't hesitate calling on this firm.

Mr Zisser came highly recommended to me. Divorce is an exceptionally painful & uncertain time & Elliot was there for me every single step of the way. Not only is he a briiliant litigator & negotiator, he is a very wise, caring, compassionate, calm & supportive person. He was the rock in the storm (hurricane!) of my divorce proceedings and, quite frankly, I am not sure I would have gotten through that nightmare without his sage counsel. In terms of outcome, he was able to orchestrate the best possible one for my daughter & myself---he truly is an amazing & gifted attorney. If you are preparing to go through a divorce & are looking for the best attorney to represent your interests & fight for what is right for you, I can offer no higher recommendation than Elliot Zisser.

Elliot Zisser is a fine professional and genuine person. It was truly a pleasure to work with him. He handled my case tactfully and with much sensitivity. I would highly recommend hiring him for any family law issue, as my case was handled quite efficiently with respect to time and money. Elliot's knowledge and expertise justify his strong reputation.

Exceptional professionalism, honest and compassionate in his work...this is Elliot Zisser. He's the best attorney I could have ever hoped to attain during a very difficult divorce and devastating time in my life. He's tremendously respected by his colleagues and peers, is very intelligent, organized and proficient - proven to be a strong litigator and successful in his field. I will never be able to thank him enough for all that he's done for me - there aren't enough words to describe my gratitude!

Well worth his fees. Professional, efficient, honest and tenacious. He is soft-spoken and has a sharp-wit and, I believe, feels genuine empathy for his clients. He knows how to handle the 'bulldog' attorneys with legal intelligence and personal style and he wins! Case closed :)

Being disatisfied with the manner my divorce was being handled by my original lawyer and feeling harassed and troubled by a combatative attorney representing my wife, I surveyed friends and auditioned the most frequently highly recommended divorce attorneys. Elliot agreed to take my case and we both approached this in a businesslike fashion. Elliot and his team met with me, developed a comprehensive understanding of the facts. He educated me on the relevant law, and we began to develop a timeline and strategy to make our case. Elliot handled the combative lawyer firmly but professionally and gracefully, and based on the thorough preparation, we were able to settle the case in mediation. I am very happy with the outcome and delighted with the skill and acumen Elliot brought to the case. He is terrific.
