I originally worked with Arlene in 2012 and came back on several occasions to asks questions. the case I was going to purpose in the first place was a divorce but after my initial interaction with Arlene, it actually became more of mediation and the need for divorce was mitigated. When you call a divorce attorney you never expect marriage counseling but to a degree that's what happened. Arlene informed me about the ins and outs of what divorce entails and offered some personal advice which I took and am still married as the result. I did use her from time to time in her capacity as a family lawyer afterwards but as I said this was more of a consultation - quick phone call or email here and there where she explained the law to me and offered advice. Very nice and professional - I'm most pleased about the fact that she took the stress part out of a very stressful situation for which I'm grateful.

hired Arlene to fight to maintain my joint legal custody. Even when the Family court Services recommending counselor suggested I have my legal custody stripped and visitation slashed to a couple hours a month, Arlene didn't panic and reassured me that a Judge has the final say in these matters. She rocked against a younger attorney and maintained my joint legal custody, got the ex's therapist booted by the judge and got me on a path to get back to the time share we once had. The judge even mentioned that the mom was the cause of the problems and said I get to jointly pick the next therapist asap.
Realize that Arlene is unavailable from Friday to Sundays so plan your dealings earlier in the week. Her paralegal, Denise, is a wealth or support & is very helpful in the details of your case.

I endorse this lawyer. Arlene Kock is extremely knowledgeable in her field. She is an expert and I rely on her in my cases with a family law cross over. I have referred several of my clients to her and the reports back are all positive. She is a no nonsense, efficient, terrific advocate. You can't do better than Arlene. Elizabeth Johnson
