Direct, compassionate , never gives up
I got more than I expected meeting Ariella. She was understanding, understood my budget and my very dynamic situation. She was always available when I needed her, which at times was often and urgent. She is aware of when to push and when to hold back. Her personality and attitude make the world of difference when being faced with the hardest thing I have ever gone through . Since this was my second lawyer for separation, I can attest that I got more than I ever would have with my previous lawyer .

Exceptional Lawyer
I've known Ariella for several years, and I can honestly say that she is one of the most hard-working, honest people i've ever met. She also has incredible insight into the legal process and strategies involved in family law. I wasn't able to use her as my primary lawyer due to the distance to my location, but she's consulted with me, and been an invaluable resource. My divorce is very complicated and she's helped me navigate through some of the more complex issues. I would strongly recommend her for any type of family law.

First Steps
I sought Ms. Wagonfeld's advice and guidance when considering filing for divorce. She was understanding of my situation and hesitation. She did not make me feel judged while I explained my situation. She helped me understand my options and the benefits of each. She is friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her.

My son
Ariella was professional I was not just a pay check to her. She genuinely cared about what I was going through. Most lawyers will treat you like a pay check. She is good at what she does, and didn't make me feel like I was just a client.
