Integrity!
If integrity, kindness and compassion along with family law expertise is important to you, I highly recommend Arthur Grossman! I consulted with him during my divorce process and he was able to answer all my questions and help me navigate through all the legal terminology and laws so that I had a better understanding of what I was reading and signing. He also gave me some great ideas that helped me feel so safe during the process.

Highly Recommend
When I met A.J. for my initial consultation I knew within minutes that he was the kind of attorney and, more importantly, the kind of person that would be best for my situation. I couldn't recommend him highly enough and I do recommend him often to friends and family who have the need for his expertise in family law or divorce. When I had questions they were answered in a timely manner. When we had an appointment for a hearing or mediation he was always on time (early) and was very prepared for every contingency. He offered thoughtful advice in order for me to make an educated decision based on various likelihoods and never insisted on a particular course of action. I appreciated being able to rely on him during a very difficult time in my life when everything else seemed a bit troubling and confusing.

Knowledgeable and Compassionate Attorney
A.J. Grossman helped me immensely through an extremely difficult time. After my husband initiated an out-of-state divorce filing, A.J. not only offered excellent legal advice while demonstrating his extensive expertise, he did so with compassion, warmth, and much needed emotional support. He spent considerable time with me, answering all my questions with comforting detail while providing effective legal counsel. His role in the divorce proceedings made me feel greatly at ease during this painful transitional period. I came to think of him as a friend who really helped me in a time of need, and my case was resolved very much in my favor. I highly recommend A.J. without any reservations!

An Excellent Lawyer
I feel so fortunate that I found AJ Grossman to represent me in my divorce. I was looking for a lawyer who was fair, honest, and collaborative, yet one who could roll up his sleeves and get tough when the situation called for it. I found all those qualities in AJ! From our very first meeting, AJ made me feel that my case was important to him. He listened to me and gave me many opportunities to express what was important to me while offering his professional guidance. I never had to wonder what was going on with my case. AJ kept me well informed. All his communications were professional and timely. I am extremely satisfied with the settlement of my divorce and with what AJ negotiated on my behalf. I highly recommend AJ Grossman!

Former Client
AJ is compassionate and listens to your needs. He did not force his opinions but was always proactive with legal suggestions! He was an amazingly calming and supportive person to be with in court! I would trust and recommend AJ to council any situation in the legal word. AJ knows his stuff and if need be he is very in tune to guiding the situation in a positive manner.

"AJ" as well as his wife Kiki are absolutely amazing! Very prompt, adiment, and thoroughly forward to achieve about anything as long as its humanly possible. What more could anyone especially just being a client could be asked for out of either Kiki or Arthur himself.
Posted by Mike | July 17, 2015
Made a difficult process easy
AJ was perfect for me. I am a pretty organized person but do not know the law. He always gave me options and recommendations when I asked. He was very responsive and very positive. He never had anything bad to say about my ex or her attorney. His fees were fair and his positive attitude was infectious. If he could handle all my legal matters I would definitely use him for everything. Hopefully no more divorces for me though. LOL! Bottom line, great guy, great attorney. I trusted his judgement 100%

Quit
My lawyer quit on me without notice 3 wks before my court. I ask why he gave me one reason about money. I gave money then he changed it and said I lied to him and he can not be my lawyer. Which is not true I did not lie to him. The person I was going up against created false information about me and he believed them. I found out later after my case what they shown him that caused him to quit.
