Writing about Barry Finkel, Esq. is about the easiest review of an attorney possible for me. Mr. Finkel is the consummate ally, friend, defender and protector you can actually hire. I believe this man is true to his profession regarding fairness, justification and legal reason in the true sense of the word. Unlike other people I have met in his profession, I have found Mr. Finkel to be un-opinionated, strong, and yet not promising or building unrealistic expectations while consulting with me during this very difficult period of time. He made this process bearable.
Family and Matrimonial Law is the specialty attorney I was seeking, and I can attest to the fact that I had found the Guru.
My ex husband decided to threaten me regarding my permanent alimony and had chosen the path to have it stopped entirely. While it was a complicated and disturbing case for me, attorney Finkel listened to what I had to say, spoke and asked me questions and made me feel as comfortable as possible. Detail after detail, meeting after meeting and subsequent conversations with this caring and unusually precise organizer, along with his staff, we were able to put up my case.
I can only say his professionalism and the manner in which he handled this situation for me showed nothing short of his outstanding knowledge of the law, and his actions in the courtroom were in my opinion a learning tool for the opposition.
Attorney Finkel and his entire staff were compassionate, kindhearted, responsive, warm and understanding to me throughout this entire process. I thank Mr. Finkel from the bottom of my heart for his fine work and of course for his sympathetic ear.
One last testament here, which I feel I must include, is I believe Mr. Barry Finkel, Esq. is "The Lawyer's Lawyer".

It is a great pleasure to endorse this lawyer. I hired Mr. Finkel to represent me in my divorce case last year, based upon the positive recommendation of a family friend who worked with him before. I could not have been happier with the representation from him and his office staff. Mr. Finkel worked hard to help me reach an amicable and (more than) fair settlement.
I've heard other clients tout his professional expertise and the concern he shows for his clients. They are right. I was fortunate to have Mr. Finkel defend me.
I'm pleased to recommend Mr. Finkel to anyone needing a divorce attorney.
Thank you, Mr. Finkel!

Mr. Finkel padded my bill. If I didn't watch closely, I would have been duped. He is extremely arrogant and only cares about money. He does not care about people. If I called and spoke to him for five minutes, I was billed for an hour. Luckily I could that. He was a bit too flirtatious for my taste. I was going through a difficult time in my life and I did not need to feel uncomfortable around my lawyer. I had to fire him. I never got the balance of my retainer back. He did absolutely nothing other than take a large retainer.

I would highly recommend Barry to anyone going through a divorce for his superior knowledge and vast experience. He will always provide you with sound advice - especially given the fact that this can be one of the most difficult periods of your life. You will be in excellent hands with Barry Finkel by your side.

Barry worked with me on my divorce years ago and has remained a trusted attorney for me and all I have referred to him. There is no one better. He is compassionate, calm, knowledgable, and very professional. He is very well respected by other attorneys and judges which makes him easy to work with. Barry truly helped me through a very rough time with my divorce and couldn't have done a better job. I highly recommend him for anyone needing a professional, experienced, and diligent attorney.

Finkel only billed for about 1/2 of my retainer and then would neither issue a refund or work it off to settle "post-judgement" issues. He did not provide or have a signed terms of representation so I ignorant of his policies. When I discovered a billing error, he sent me $500.

This attorney billed me for servicers not performed.
He was never prepared for court.
If this attorney did a good job for me, why would I be writing this.

I have been impressed with the professionalism and results obtained via Barry's family law practice. I am in "for the long haul" with a very conflict-oriented (combative) ex-spouse who never ceases to negatively surprise me. I am exceedingly pleased that I have Barry and his team in my corner! I would highly recommend this firm's services to anyone! He is a "winner"....odds are you will be too with his advice & services!
