Alona is phenomenal. She represented my husband, Damian, recently in a family Court case for my step children and I'm so thankful for the amazing work Alona did. She listened to the concerns and issues Damian presented, she did a wonderful job and assisted him with being awarded with more than he wanted. With Alona my husband finally got the justice he deserved. I can tell that Alona has a passion for justice and righteousness. I agree that mediation is always best but in this case it wasn't an option. I'm happy that my step children will be in a loving, peaceful home to enjoy their childhood. Thank you so much Alona, you're great and you have made this long journey come to a happy ending. Alona is the way to go if you need help. She is highly recommended by my family and two other colleagues I work with that have used her services, Katie and Veronica.

I was inadvertently given Alona, after coming to the agency for another attorney to help with a divorce in 2008. I was not happy about the change and was told she was competent. During the 4 months of litigation and more than $60k on legal fees, my husband at the time managed to throw all kinds of things her way for which she was unable to handle. He sold an airplanes, paid off big business accounts, and hid money for which he had no recompense. She was clearly in over her head. I was writing emails to tell her what to do. I was so overwhelmed without the advocacy that I actually went back to my husband and spend 3 years making a different plan. I then had leverage to get out without being cheated. I was so disappointed with Alona's ability to handle my husband and his lawyer. I would not recommend her for a divorce situation where the husband has tried to hide everything and throws nothing but paperwork at her to cause more and more expense without ever getting anywhere.

I was very pleased with the service Alona provided in facilitating my divorce through the court system. She explained everything clearly, was impartial and expedited all the paperwork efficiently and got us copies very fast. I would not hesitate recommending her to anyone else.

I endorse Alona Gottfried. I have known Alona for over ten years and have found her to be not only professional and competent, but she practices with a level of detail and excellence that is second to none. As a family law attorney and mediator, she meets the highest standards.
