When confronted with my children placed in CPS custody I was lost for what to do. Ilana gave me excellent direction, which I followed and resulted in my children being returned to me in 7 months and the case was dismissed after only 9 months! She then handled my divorce prceedings and made sure everything was handled so I could get on with my new life. I would highly recommend Ilana and her staff. They are carring and passionate people who care about the people they assist. I felt like more than just a client. Ilana helped me get my life back. You would be foolish yo not hire her.

I didn't know exactly what I was looking for in an attorney as no one hands you a manual on exactly how to handle a divorce. I researched this decision for over six hours, narrowing the field down to six collaborative attorneys. I knew that, based on reading tons of reviews, I was looking for an attorney that would have my best interest in mind (duh), but also was drawn to ones where folks said the firms were conscientious about their limited funds. What stood out about Ilana's reviews was something to the effect of "she is totally collaborative, until that option is exhausted, and then she goes in and fights hard for you". Thankfully mine never came to that, but I appreciated the nuanced and responsive approach, and we were able to come to a resolution even before any mediation. It's weird to say that I had a wonderful experience with her whole office in my divorce, but it's true! She made me feel empowered, protected, and her associate, Priya, was right aside me the whole way. Trust me - it will be the best decision you make if you are able to hire her.

Ilana was a great attorney for me.
She prepared me for what to expect during the divorce and she made me like I was her

Ilana, her paralegal Maureen, and her fellow attorney Priya were all very professional. Their office is clean, well organized, centrally located just two blocks from the courthouse.
I had a divorce with child and an open CPS investigation. It was acrimonious as you can get, mom was destroying as much as she could on the way out. While the facts of the case were unique (seriously, your mileage may vary) ultimately our case resolved with me being granted sole custody which was absolutely the best case scenario given the facts. I was also able to keep the entirety of my retirement and stock. Ilana, Maureen, and Priya even worked with me on the subsequent child support case and securing records from my own case that I needed to apply for a federal grant towards my child's tuition which was a big help since we had a lot of rebuilding to do.
I hope that no one has to go through a difficult separation like I did, doubly so if you have children, but Ilana was absolutely up to the task. You won't be left wanting for legal representation if you hire Ilana.

It's rare to find an individual who will pure heartedly go to great lengths to help one in a desperate and heart breaking time. Ilana not only was referred to me by some of the best in the area but she took my case around the 6 o'clock hour on a Friday evening. She gave me comfort and strength when most wouldn't and I'm forever greatful for her dedication. Thanks again Ilana!

Ilana Tanner came highly recommended and accepted my cause after due diligence. Her advice was intelligently tailored to my specific situation and she displayed understanding of me, as our acquaintance deepened, and of the necessity that in the end result, it was important to leave behind as few hard feelings as possible, while still achieving a fair outcome with a party whose view of fairness didn't come very close to matching my own. I'm very impressed with Ilana and her professionalism and effectiveness and grasp of human nature.

Ms. Tanner has been my lawyer recently and was very supportive and responsive in my initial uncontested divorce but when things became contested, her ability to respond in a timely manner has been challenging at times and I had to seek a new attorney after I learned through other another attorney that my case was not handled very well. For anyone seeking a strong attorney that has their back at all times and isn't too busy to focus on contested divorces, I recommend that they seek a different attorney but for simple uncontested ones, Mrs. Tanner might be a good choice.

Ilana was SUCH an amazing gift to have during this awful process. I truly appreciate her hard work, dedication, and genuine care for myself and my little guy during this hard journey.

Ilana did an amazing job on my case. It was very messy considering my ex that I was divorcing was in the military. She was highly available when it came to responding to my concerns and needs. She pretty much achieved everything I needed out of my divorce financially, child custody, and helped build an amazing court order. She is calm, composed and collected during the hearings we had, and she never failed or disappointed me. I felt I put my life and my daughters lives in her hands and she took care of us all the way. (Her paralegal is amazing as well) Ilana and Mo are a great team!
