Couldn’t ask for a better lawyer!!
Jake was a pleasure to work with! He was responsive and always kept me in the loop for my case. He calmed my nerves and took the time to handle my case with care! He never rushed me and was always happy to answer my questions! Highly recommend him!!

Retain him
During the most challenging time I’d been through, Jake stepped in and guided me with efficiency and a level of precision and attention to detail that lead to a result better than I even thought possible. It was important to me for my case to be presented accurately...without the typical legal exaggeration and underhanded twisting of facts commonly found in my type of case. Jake accomplished that, leading the case with dignity balanced beautifully with strength and determination. I would most definitely recommend him and his team to anyone in need of legal services.

Attentive, Incredible Attention to Detail, Overall Great Attorney
Jake is an excellent. Given the complexity and duration of my divorce, which eventually wound up going to trial, Jake was brought in about halfway thru the whole process to support my case. What I noticed in Jake right from the start was both his attentiveness and attention to detail. It was clear that he'd taken the time to really study my case so that when it came time, in court, for him to represent me there were no issues whatsoever. I also found that when I had questions about the proceedings (what was next, what does the judge mean by that, etc) he was able to very quickly and simply explain things in terms that I could understand. I also appreciated his courtroom presence. He always maintained his composure, and never let the actions or attitude of the attorney we were up against, break his train of thought or fluster him inside the courtroom. When challenged in court, his responses were always clear, concise and very calculated, always keeping my best interests in mind. This is, in my opinion, a character trait absolutely necessary in any great attorney. As often as I would get upset or emotional over what was being said in the courtroom, nothing seemed to rattle Jake. Can't say enough about how grateful I am for having his support, thru one of the most challenging periods in my life, as a single father (successfully) navigating thru an almost 2 yearlong divorce.

Professional and helpful
I have been consulting lawyers for an unpleasant family related legal matter that has occurred. While I was unable to retain Jacob, due to the specifics of my issue, he promptly provided a list of some attorneys who might be able to assist my wife and I, one of whom we have since retained as our attorney. I greatly appreciate his professionalism, empathy and speed in this matter. I would not hesitate to retain his services.

Absolutely The Best !
Jake Nemer recently represented me in a long, contentious divorce. I was represented by an extremely high profile divorce attorney for over a year when I hired Jake. The first time I spoke to him over the phone, I knew he was the right choice to take over my seemingly never ending case. His knowledge of the law and work ethic is impressive, as well as his attention to detail. He strikes the perfect balance in his approach. He will absolutely stand his ground for his clients when necessary. He will also be a practical voice of reason so as not to needlessly drag out a difficult process. Basically, everything one looks for in a great lawyer, Jake Nemer provides. The results Jake achieved with my case, speak for themselves. We were stalled in gridlock, all avenues to settle were exhausted. Jake stepped in and resolved my case, delivering results I couldn't have been happier with. I'm grateful for his hard work on my difficult case and would hire him again tomorrow.

Excellent Attorney
I highly recommend Jake Nemer as a lawyer. He guided me through the process of divorcing my husband in a professional, yet kind and considerate manner. Jake was exceptional at laying out the steps of the process in a clear and concise manner. Any time I had questions or needed reassurance, Jake responded quickly and clearly. Getting a divorce is not simply a legal matter, and Jake was able to acknowledge the emotional aspect while helping me move through the process. For example, there were many times throughout the divorce process that I simply had no idea how to respond to my ex-husband’s emails. Jake was invaluable at handling many of the issues or offering suggestions as to how I could respond. As with many divorce cases, there were many moving pieces and much negotiating throughout the process. Jake spent time explaining various options and outcomes, so that I could make informed decisions regarding finances and custody of my children. It was also important to Jake that he knew what was important to me, and he was ready to listen and figure out ways to create a Marriage Dissolution Agreement and Parenting Plan that reflected my ideas. Finally, Jake was ready to take aggressive action when necessary, and I know that this helped the case come to a satisfactory conclusion for me. Again, Jake Nemer is an excellent lawyer that I would highly recommend.

Outstanding Legal Representation
Jake represented me in a lengthy divorce process in 2014/15. His wisdom, guidance and patience was wonderful. Not only did he often think of creative approaches to resolve the inevitable conflict that happens in an ongoing divorce, but he was very open to suggestions from me for resolutions. Jake was kind but firm when I needed a lawyer to help me as a client sift through the emotions of the divorce process. He also has a great sense of humor. I am grateful that he was my lawyer and appreciated him getting me through a very tough process. I think he is one of the best!

Advice on Child Custody
Jacob got back to me quickly when I needed immediate advice on how to handle a child custody issue with my ex. He was professional, sincere, and did not seem to be rushing me off the phone like most other lawyers had done. Using his advice I was able to resolve my issues. Thank you, Jacob!

Highly Recommended
I hired Jake per a friends referral for a non-contested divorce case. Although this was a fairly simple scenario, Jake was still fully invested. He communicated very clearly and efficiently, but also with a sensitivity to my situation throughout the whole process. During our first visit, it was apparent to me that Jake was a gifted lawyer, who would fight for me and for what was right. He was trustworthy and put the right amount of pressure on the other party to get the best results, without sacrificing good character. I was also consistently impressed with his professionalism. The day we went to court, the judge even commented on how well his document was prepared. Jake made my process very easy and as painless as it could be. I would highly recommend him!

Excellent family law attorney
I hired Jake in a very difficult divorce case. I trusted Jake from the beginning and never realized how much work he is doing behind the scenes. He was always available, and had a very caring ear to my concerns. He likes to win! I highly recommend him to anyone that needs an aggressive attorney.

Professional and on the rise
A few things stand out about Mr. Nemer. Not the least of which is that he was held in very high regard by a judge who doesn't tend to be easily impressed. In dealing with him it was easy to see why, though. Mr. Nemer is a clear communicator, an attentive listener, and is precise in his handling of situations. When faced with extreme time crunches and difficult scenarios he was upbeat, and driven. When things were required he laid them out in clear terms. When he had to act he did so, without exception, in the time frame offered, and at a high professional standard.

A Credit To This Profession
I hired Jake Nemer to protect my interest in a family estate matter. From beginning to end he provided me with a clear understanding of estate law for my situation. He answered all my questions, counseled me on my options, then moved forward with his professional experience to get the best results the law allows. I praise Jake for his efforts because I never met him face to face. This case was conducted long distance from New York by phone and email. He is truly one of a kind and a credit to this profession. It's said, "You get what you pay for". With attorney Jacob Nemer, "You get more then what you pay for". My sincere thanks Jake.

Awesome
Going into my divorce I was not sure what the exact process was. Jake gave me all the details of different senarios that could take place. Going through the process he let me know which hearings I needed to attend and which ones I did not so that I was not out of work when I didn't need to be. He was very promt on returning my e-mails and phone calls kepping me well informed of the status of the case. Going forward, I will be calling Jake for any future issue that may arise.

GREAT Attorney! Highly Recommend!!!!
A divorce can be an extremely painful experience, but thankfully Jacob Nemer is not only my attorney but I indeed consider him a friend. It is very easy to communicate with Jacob and it has been an absolute pleasure working with him. My phone calls and emails were always responded to in a timely fashion. I was never left in the dark about what was going on with my case. Jacob was always calm and knew just the right actions to take to ensure I would get the outcome I desired or what was in my best interest. I appreciate his guidance and advice. Professional, helpful, trustworthy and caring are just a few characteristics I would use to describe Jacob. With NO hesitation I would HIGHLY recommend Jacob Nemer and his firm!!

EXCELLENT! Delivered EXACTLY what I wanted.
Jake Nemer did an excellent job keeping me informed throughout the entire process as to exactly what was happeneing and what it meant. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney. His price was fair and he got the EXACT results I wanted and then some more. I was the defendent in an absolutly ridiculous harrassment case. He was able to use the plaintiffs own testimony against them and got a mutual restraining order which protects me as well.

Professional, Excellent Representation
Jake was absolutely amazing to work with for my uncontested divorce. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and accurately and did so in a caring and friendly manner. Jake was readily available to answer my phone calls and emails and definitely helped keep me at ease during a very stressful time. He also drew up my quit claim deed I needed as part of the divorce agreement within 1 day of me asking for his assistance with that as well. He is professional and well respected, confident and knowledgeable. I would recommend Jacob Nemer to anyone who wants excellent representation with their legal matters. Thanks again Jake for all your help!

Get what you pay for
I highly recommend using Jake Nemer if you are going through a divorce, you truly get what you pay for. He explains the process, steps, and gives a fair estimate on cost. Jake gives you realistic expectations and time frames, which I appreciated. He is almost always available, via text, email or phone if you have questions or want to change any thing. Jake made this not fun situation as stress free as possible.
