The Good Lawyer
First and foremost I would like to thank my heavenly father for granting me strength throughout my legal process and blessing me with an extremely professional attorney, Jeffrey Alter. Alter represented me as I pursued both a child support and custody case. Alter explained the process from start to finish and he fought for me every step of the way. For example: ensuring that the petitioner submitted truthful documents, challenging the court when necessary as well as not allowing third parties to weigh in . Alter wore many hats during this ordeal , such as : counselor, friend, attorney, and so much more and I will forever be indebted to him. Moreover, I am pleased to say Alter resolved my case and I walked away VICTORIOUS!!!!

Family Attorney | Oct 25
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I appreciated the time I spent working against Mr. Alter on a matter because he took the time to contentiously litigate matters in defense of his client with legal support and purpose rather than the unfortunate empty harshness that is so common in family law. It allowed me to have serious discussions with him for the hopeful benefit of our clients out of court and simultaneously litigate on the issues in court. I appreciate his professionalism."
