  • Joel Harvey Mirman

    Denise Mirman is smart, aggressive and an extremely talented trial lawyer. She understands sophisticated financial matters, which makes her a formidable opponent. Yet she has excellent relationships in the bar, making it possible for her to negotiate even in difficult cases. Her word is her bond, and lawyers know that. She has the ability to put clients at ease, even in the stress-filled environment of divorce. I have referred family law clients to her for years, and will continue to do so.
