A Lawyer who truly cares for his clients best interest.
I was referred to Alex by a close family friend and in doing so I got a really great lawyer. My decision for divorce was a pretty quick one and even though we had some big set backs in the process (COVID, my ex removing me from health insurance prior to our divorce) Alex was on top of everything from the start. He did everything in his power to move things along in a timely fashion even with these major set backs. He is the kind of lawyer who if you are divorcing someone who can easily manipulate you (like I was) he won’t let that happen. Not even for a second. He is kind and actually cares for his clients and their well-being. If you are looking for someone who will fight for you till the very end I highly suggest retaining Alex Moskovic as your lawyer.

Patient & Considerate
Alex was easy to work with. He listened and reasoned with me while he made sure to weigh pros and cons and share what the law or legal implication of any decision was. He was also very considerate when it comes to payment. He put making sure his client was satisfied first before money.

Excellent Attorney
I was referred to Alex Moskovic by a friend of mine who used him for his divorce. I presented Alex Moskovic with the difficulty of my post-decree issues. My ex was in contempt of court on the Judgment of Dissolution for a handful of issues: the settlement of the marital home, money owed to me for paying off marital debt, and child support. Alex took all the intake information on the case, contacted my ex, and formulated a solid foundation for the case to move forward. He was assisted by his associate Garrett Miller, who handled the brunt of the court work, follow up and the multiple layers of orders that had to be sifted through. I knew going into this level of post-decree litigation that things were going be be difficult and problematic with my ex. Moskovic and Associates met and exceeded the challenges of my case with great command of the law, proficiency, and compassion. I feel very blessed that Alex and his associate Garrett were able to help me through my case, get all issues resolved well in my favor, and the results they fought for were beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend Alex Moskovic and his firm in a heartbeat to anyone in need of legal counsel in domestic matters.

Not intimidated by anyone
I wish I had found Alex before my previous hires. My problem with past attorneys simply communication. I would have to wait sometimes up to 30 to 40 days before I'd even get a call back from my previous Council. The divorce process takes long enough but when you don't have counsel that gets back to you it's maddening. Every time I reached out to Alex he got back to me either the same day or the latest the following. Within 6 months of hiring Alex my divorce was complete. Again he he is simply not intimidated by anybody. He understands what you are looking for. Extremely knowledgeable attorney most importantly trustworthy. In closing the best investment I made throughout the entire divorce process.

An Attorney Who Cares About His Clients
I was fortunate to be referred to the expertise of Alex Moskovic by Patrick McMahon, attorney at law. I currently own a roofing and tuckpointing corporation and solicited the advice of Alex Moskovic to pursue a former customer who was refusing to pay their account balance. It was a difficult case because two of the people for the organization for whom we performed roofing and tuckpointing services were lawyers and they were handling things very aggressively. We were successful in resolving this challenging matter and collected the debt due to Mr. Moskovic's knowledge and perseverance

Trust is Critical.
While I have required the services of an attorney very few times in my life, I recently found myself in need of one. I had heard very positive comments about Alex from a friend, and decided to contact him. I heard back from Alex that same afternoon. I explained what had occurred, which , even to my ears, sounded rather complex. In short, it did result in a complex collective case, which Alex had to defend. Through various legal arguments and the threat of raising these defenses at trial, Alex was able to convince the Plaintiff’s attorney to dismiss the case. At no time were we unable to reach Alex within a short period of time. Hopefully we won’t find ourselves in need of an attorney again soon, but should we, Alex would be the one I would call immediately. It is always critical to be able to trust the person one is working with, but particularly so when one puts one’s trust in his/her lawyer. It is with no reservations that I can recommend Alex Moskovic. He has certainly proved to be that lawyer with whom I felt total trust and with whom we were able to get our desired outcome.

Excellent service and attention to details
Alex represented me in my divorce case and I cannot recommend him highly enough. He and his staff are highly professional, extremely detail-oriented, and prompt. Alex always took time to explain details of my case that were not clear to me, and with his guidance I was able to achieve an outcome to my case that exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Alex!

Amazing!
What can I say about Alex besides he is one of the most amazing attorneys I’ve had the pleasure to work with. He’s very dedicated and detail oriented. He helped me through one of the hardest situations I’ve ever been in. He was very honest with what to expect and what I need to do. He put in a lot of work to prepare for trial. Even though I was very nervous I was also confident in Alex’s abilities. At the end of the day we walk away with a win and it was the best feeling I had in month! So happy I put my faith in Alex.

My experience with Alex
When I hired Alex I was not legally allowed to speak to my kids. Within about 6 months I had them 100% of the time. I appreciated Alex’s professionalism. I’ve dealt with a few different lawyers and Alex seems the be the only one who properly responds to emails and calls when he says he’s going to call (instead of calling multiple days late). He’s a nice guy and treated me very nice.

professional, considerate, and responsible
It was a greatest pleasure to work with Mr. Moskovic, who provided his professional service to help me through a breach of contract case. After a friendly and informative initial consultation, Mr. Moskovic took my case and remained in the driver's position throughout the entire process. He continuously shared with me his perspective on the case and how well it had been progressing (based on his experiences), which was very helpful for me. The legal process may appear much more stressful and unpredictable that it actually is, especially for people without prior experience -- Mr. Moskovic is well aware of that, and is very capable of reducing the clients' anxiety level with his professional and informative style of practice. He was quick at distilling key points from conversations with the opposing counsel, and also very sharp and candid with regard to providing suggestions for the next steps. It took quite a few months, but Mr. Moskovic was able to conclude the case with a fair outcome for me. I learnt a lot from him and can definitely appreciate his patience, planning, resourcefulness, and of course highest professional expertise. I recommend Mr. Moskovic without hesitation.

Got my life back
Alex was a recommendation through my employer. I had been going through a divorce that got messy. Alex took over as a substitution 2 years into the case. He took on a case that was losing ground and going no where quickly and it was consuming my life. The other party had already been awarded things based on falsehood, my parenting time was being restricted in attempt to collect max support by the opposing counsel. Lies from the other counsel and defendant were beginning to outweigh the truth. Alex was patient, strategic and we developed a great cohesive relationship. He allowed me to steer the case in the direction I wanted, but advised me of all possible outcomes throughout the way. I began to trust him as a friend and believed in his genuine interest to help me. No divorce is cheap and quite frankly I was ready to cave in because of the cost, the length of time in court and the defamation of my character that I was being put through. Alex will make sure you receive what you pay for and more. He was able to be aggressive when needed and his knowledge of the law helped the truth be seen. Alex's knowledge of the law saved the case on multiple occasions and he was able to ensure that I would not be manipulated, nor taken advantage of any longer. We were able to tell the truth and be heard in a way that allowed a clear understanding of my position. We were able to utilize the law and eventually worked the opposing counsel into settlement. We made a great team and we were able to show the truth in the end and my children will grow up with their father in lives. Alex's patience, professionalism, and genuine want to help people made him an amazing attorney to work with. Thank you again for giving me my life back!!!

Best Attorney - Highly Recommended
I highly recommend Alex. He took my unconventional divorce case after I had a bad experience for over a year with three prior attorneys from a different firm who were not able to make progress on my case due to a spiteful and vindictive ex-wife who was not open for negotiation they made me lose time and money. Alex looked at my case and recommended me the best course of action; he always explained to me in detail and made sure I understood everything. Soon after he took my case I started to see results. In the end he was able to help me reach a settlement obtaining the best possible results and avoid going to trial which is what I wanted. He has lots of experience, listens to you and offers the best course of action. Thank you Alex!

Excellent Representation - Highest Recommendation
Alex took on my case on very short notice and, in a week's time, prepared for a trial regarding a very tumultuous situation around visitation with my children. As a father, I have been dragged through the domestic courts and been treated unjustly over and over again by a spiteful and vindictive ex-wife. Finding myself in a situation, yet again, where I have been falsely accused and refused access to my children I needed quick action and I could not do it alone even though I tried. Alex prepared for trial in one week's time and worked tirelessly day and night in doing so. In the end, we reached an agreed order on the court date and avoided going to trial. During the time we were in court, Alex demonstrated versatility. He was collaborative and results-oriented in dealing with the other side. However, when he needed to be, he was a bulldog. This is the person you want in your corner. Tons of experience with domestic cases. He will listen to you. He will tell you what your best course of action is. 100% highest recommendation.
