Illegal retention of minors in the US
Mr. Granowitz made possible the return of my nephews to their mother in Argentina after the father illegally retained them in the US

It's all about the money here...
I needed Mr. Granowitz to assist me in keeping my son safe from his father who is a documented/convicted drug addict after his latest transgressions. He told me it would cost $5000 to go in on an ex parte motion to have the father's visitation suspended. I'm sorry but that's ridiculous. I do not want to go to an professional's office, loaded with documentation and proof and have to defend myself against my own attorney. I heard the statement "you picked him" too many times. Yes, true, I cannot change that but I can find a different attorney.

The children loose in the end
I won’t go into everything about this man and the way he practices law. I’ll keep it to what is most important while going through a divorce, or any other family law type case: the children. If you want to win, hire him. If you want to destroy your kids, hire him. PLEASE, know that this man does not consider the best interest of the children whatsoever. He is there to win...at whatever cost.

Overpriced, Incompetent, Unprofessional and Rude!
Mr. Granowitz, is the epitome of the short man complex. His style and tactics are unprofessional and a disgrace to the profession. I over spent by thousands of dollars during my divorce and the situation escalated to unbearable. I eventually fired Mr. Granowitz and went with a different attorney to handle my case. I'm my opinion, don't waste your time and money with this man as he could truly care less about his clients.

Dont waste your money
Granowitz is overpriced and it is my belief that he does not have the best interests of his clients at heart. Lawyer is combative with the other lawyer and judge and managed to turn a manageable situation into a worse situation. Don't waste your money on this lawyer.
