Josh is not only a fantastic attorney and skilled mediator, but also a person with great integrity. During my divorce proceedings there were several times where the other party was very slow to respond. Each time Josh was able to jump-start the conversation and keep the negotiations moving forward. Divorce is not an easy process emotionally, yet Josh ensured the whole process was conducted in a professional and respectful manner. Even my ex-husband's attorney noted that Josh was very pleasant to work with.
Several years have passed since our divorce decree was signed, and we are all in a better space. Josh's humility and diplomacy during the process helped lay the foundation for a healthy future for my family. As time went on, my ex-husband and I were able to reestablish our friendship and this has led to an easier time co-parenting. We can have fun together at our child's soccer games and school events, and then go our separate ways after the event. Due to Josh's style and approach during the divorce proceedings, my child now has a family that gets along which is an invaluable investment in her future.

I was referred to Josh by my business attorney of many years. That alone qualified Josh as among the best. My admiration for him only increased. Without making a big to-do about issues, he always cut to the chaste immediately, always preferring to find an avenue that avoided confrontation with the opposing attorney. Believe me, in my situation, this was a BIG challenge since that attorney seemed to do everything possible to provoke controversy. Never a raised voice, never any histrionics, -- always a reasonable approach given with a soft measured voice.
That approach was very effective. How do I know? Because, when it was all over, Josh had achieved the objectives that I had set for him at the outset! And he did so without alienating the opposing side -- instead he gained their respect.

Joshua Kadish provided me with excellent information and guidance during my divorce proceedings. During a time of great stress I relied on his expertise and advice in dealing with all that was involved. He was always available to answer questions and give me explanations either by e-mail, phone, or in person. His professionalism and kindness made it possible for me to get through the divorce.
I would recommend him highly to anyone in need of legal advice.
