After many, many years of "verbal agreements" with the father and him not complying to them, I needed to take action... well, he made it happen sooner for us since he physically, mentally and emotionally abused my son. I started my own paperwork, I did court 'Self Help Center' various times. And let me tell you, many employees at the court house gave me different advice which made it more difficult to understand the system. It was an overwhelming experience for me. I was losing all hope, and all this was a very long process. But protecting my son was number 1 priority, and the security and piece of mind for my family.
I decided to hire David Lavi it was the best choice and was a better decision since he was referred to me by a friend. There's so many family lawyers out there, I did a lot of re-search and it's not easy to just trust anyone. When he called, he listen to all I had to say, even when I was tearing up he said to me "it's ok take a deep breath, I am listening, take your time" (I am always an emotional nutshell). And after speaking with him on the phone we set up a time to meet personally. My work schedule varies, but he was nice enough to wait after closing hours to meet with me and listen to more detail of my story. He gave me his full attention through all my conversation and I would see him write small notes on his legal pad, in the end when I finally vented, he asked questions (from his notes) which was important to me, because it showed interest. Our meeting went very well, he said he would take my case and would be happy to help!! And so he did, met with him personally 3 times and this is including our court date. Life can be very busy, so being able to communicate with him by email and phone was GREAT! He made my life! He was prompt, and when I would lose patience and get anxious he would always calm me down. I feel as if I was a difficult client at times and he was very neutral to the situation and would update me with the case and reminded me these things take time and would say "RELAX it is going to be OK"
After many months of him working his magic, we had a court date whooo hoooo!!!! I was ready and full of excitement, finally the day had come on Dec. 19th... I was nervous, but having him with me brought comfort to me, brought me peace. and I am not going to lie I felt powerful having someone with so much knowledge and charisma to represent my son. Court didn't take hours (compare to when I was on my own, I would spend full days at times). It went by so quickly I didn't even know when it was over. David and the Judge exchange some words and that was that... David waited for some papers and I will NEVER forget this - we walked outside the courtroom, he extended his hand with docs and said to me "Merry Christmas" I cried! David gave my son and I the MOST BEAUTIFUL most rewarding gift of all, PEACE. I felt like I had finally accomplished something for my son, to protect him and him to feel safe. David also said if I ever needed any help with anything, not to hesitate! You cannot go wrong on hiring him, he will be the best choice you can ever make for you and your family I promise you!
Thank you David from the bottom of my heart.

Ah, the sweet taste of victory! David was AMAZING! From the moment I met with him, I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. My situation before I met with David was pretty bad to say the least; a default judgment was entered because I didn’t receive notice of the hearing (which subsequently resulted in my non-appearance).
In comes David. He started on my case right away. The paperwork he filed was so powerful it intimidated me, until I remembered he was working WITH me LOL. The motion filed by David actually made the other party want to settle out of court. However, a settlement was not reached (other party didn’t agree with my proposal). At our court hearing, David did what he does best which resulted in the judge ruling in my favor! The icing on the cake: he was able to shut-the-door closed on any attempt the other party may have made to appeal the decision. Woo hoo!
I can’t thank him enough for helping me with my child support case. Not only did he do an exceptional job, he was more than pleasant and informative each time we spoke. My calls and emails were always answered and were never filtered through assistants or paralegals…I always spoke with David directly.
I HIGHLY recommend David Lavi for all your family law needs.
Thank you for everything David!

David Lavi has represented me and advised me on multiple matters in the past two years and thus far has proven to be brilliant on each case! I know that I can count on his ability to think outside of the box coupled with his extensive trial experience in a myriad of legal matters. He has successfully represented my close friends in a Personal Injury claim after a car accident. He has also represented another friend successfully in a child custody case. This guy is the real deal. HIGHLY RECOMMEND DAVID LAVI!!!! Thank you for everything!
