One of the attributes that makes Mr. Filipowicz an excellent attorney is that he is a caring person. He was the lead attorney in my divorce case. Mr. Filipowicz does more appellate work than most other attorneys. This is advantageous because his experience in appellate cases makes him more adept than most other attorneys in handling primary divorce cases. He tends, therefore, to avoid mistakes that other attorneys may commonly make. I worked with attorneys in other firms before hiring Mr. Filipowicz. No other attorney I dealt with works as hard as Mr. Filipowicz. Mr. Filipowicz is efficient in his preparation for hearings. He is extremely competent. He has an impressive knowledge base. But he is still very compassionate and understands that a divorce means much more to his clients than just paperwork and appearances before a judge. I was very satisfied with the work that Mr. Filipowicz accomplished in my divorce case.

Mr. Filipowicz took over my case as it headed into the appellate court. He is very familiar with the appeals process and he was prompt and considerate with all communications. He effectively led a team to defend my case in the appellate court, and since then to enforce and strengthen the prior order back in the original trial court. I especially appreciated how he would summarize the challenges we were facing and explain why he was recommending the various strategies as the case progressed.

I hired Attorney Filipowicz, currently with the offices of Jeffrey M. Leving, and the outcome was fantastic. Attorney Filipowicz was great at making feel confidant that I was going to win the case and I did. He was on top of his game and gave the other side a run for their money. I highly recommend hiring his office. He did a great job for me.

I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Andrey Filipowicz on many complicated and contentious cases, relating to both parenting issues as well as financial issues. He excels in all areas of family law. He routinely goes the extra mile for his clients and the results show. A more talented and dedicated lawyer you could not ask for.
