Deborah Dubroff guided me through a very long, contentious divorce that involved all kinds of non standard stuff (QDROs, out of state moves, spousal support, even a contempt hearing). When I met her, I was immediately struck by her candor, razor-sharp wit, and her obvious generosity of spirit. What I mean by the last is that she took lots of time with me during our initial meeting and really listened to me. She made me feel like everything would be ok, and it was. I won the entire case, including a very large settlement. She strikes me as extremely honest. She always charged me very fairly. To sum up, I think that Deborah is sort of the antithesis of the lawyer stereotype. She really cares about her clients and their outcomes. She doesn't overcharge. She made me feel as though I got tremendous value for the money I paid to engage her services. I highly recommend her, without reservation.

Deborah is not only sharp and quick-witted, she is also well-respected by the judges and her fellow family law attorneys. We often refer clients to Deborah and know that they will be well taken care of. I highly endorse Deborah and her firm.

Deborah is awesome. We worked together on several cases (all of which settled) and she is one of my go-to people when I have a question or need a second opinion. She gives you information straight-up. No sugar coating, and no fluff. I love that. She's reasonable, but tough. Perfect balance. I highly recommend.
