Compassionate, Professional & Effective
In the summer of 2015 I divorced my wife and needed an attorney that would listen, be proactive, and help me protect myself and my daughter. I was referred to Nancy Stone from another attorney and couldn’t have been happier. Nancy and her partner, Harriet Rotter were compassionate, very professional and I felt extremely effective throughout the process. One of their attributes I appreciated most, as never going through this before, was how they helped me set my expectations and prepared me for each step in the process. While divorce was not an enjoyable experience, they did a terrific job in assisting me through it in a way that I felt made the experience less stressful. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for an excellent attorney.

Best Divorce Lawyers Ever....
Harriet and Nancy were truly amazing during my divorce. What I liked was their ability to keep me focused on the final result while sorting through both the emotional and financial issues. Harriet always had me and my children and our future as the main focus during the entire process. Their entire team was always supportive. Both are well respected attorney's in the legal community. And to be more specific, having never been through this process before and [no offense] hoping to never do it again, it is amazing to see how many incompetent "My Cousin Vinny" attorneys are out there. Not only did Harriet have to represent me, but at times had to educate other attorneys on legal issues when they would make inappropriate statements or basic legal blunders. Having well respected attorneys and the right team represent you, for something as important as your future, is crucial. Harriet and Nancy are those attorneys!

She Beat the Odds!
Dynamic, knowledgeable, experienced, compassionate, dedicated, reliable and accountable are all words I use when describing Attorney Harriett Rotter. She navigated me through my divorce process with grace, ensuring me step by step that she would work hard to get the best results for me and my son. Harriett exceeded my highest expectations defeating the odds on subject matters, that according to articles in the Legal Journal, were impossible to beat. Yes, she beat the odds which resulted in my settlement being greater than I could have ever imagined. From the moment I retained Attorney Rotter, I felt her compassion for my situation. She treated me like an individual and not just another case. She left nothing to chance and took the time to understand my case and me as a person. While Harriett is a fighter as legal counsel, I will never forget the kind, gentle approach she displayed when working with me one-on-one. She and her staff are professional, caring and passionate about their mission and vision to help in legal matters. I would highly recommend Harriett Rotter, Attorney at Law for any divorce case. She will represent you well.

Perfect lawyer for me.
Harriet assisted me with my divorce and I was extremely pleased with the results. She was very upfront about the possibilities and we worked as a team to develop our case for mediation. In addition to working towards a solution, she provided me with excellent advice regarding necessary steps for post divorce. Harriet is very knowledgable and experienced and has the network and relationships to get things done in a expeditious manner.
