About Tatyana

Learn Tatyana’s areas of practice.

EXPERIENCE YOU CAN DEPEND ON

In her twenty years of practice, Tatyana Gidirimski has handled every aspect of family law, including complex divisions of property, maintenance, parenting plans (including modifications), child relocations, child support, division of business assets, claims of committed intimate relationships, restraining orders, domestic violence protection orders, and preparation and negotiation of prenuptial and other relationship agreements. Tatyana is highly cognizant of the toll - both financial and psychological - a contested family law matter can take on the client and strives to achieve an out-of-court resolution of the conflict whenever possible. She is skilled in dealing with high-conflict personalities and counsels clients on handling hostile emails and other communications. However, an out-of-court resolution of a conflict is not always possible, and if you have to go to court you are in good hands. Tatyana is an experienced litigator. She has litigated numerous contentious divorces and has successfully represented clients in trials and family court hearings. Tatyana has also handled a number of interstate and international divorces involving complex jurisdictional and conflict of laws issues.

Exceptional Family Law Attorney!
Tatyana represented me throughout 2017 on a difficult family law case which involved an ex pursuing multiple crazy angles to try to take additional custody with our children. Throughout the process, Tatyana tried to resolve the case to minimize legal involvement. However, trials were unavoidable in this case given the opposing party. Tatyana was a warrior for the trial process. She strategized, executed, and delivered. Given the situation, I enjoyed working with Tatyana as much as possible. For everyone else's sake, I hope that they do not have to go through such a process. However, Tatyana is definitely one that you should hire. Tatyana is armed and ready for whatever circumstance pops up while also being one that works to resolve the legal dispute as efficiently as possible.

Exceptional
Tatyana was referred to me by a friend. By the end of our first meeting, I knew that I had found more than just and advocate to represent me. I had found a warrior with a huge heart. Tatyana listened to my case and I knew she was listening and I felt respected and heard. My case involved DV, custody issues and a number of other complicated layers. Tatyana strategized effectively and worked with me to navigate some exceptional problems. As important as her skill and acumen as an attorney is her standard of ethics. Regardless of the fight, she operates from an honorable place. Parts of my case have completed and some new areas have need to be addressed. For me, there is no one else that I would even entertain to have represent me on any legal matter. I am so grateful for the work she has done and continues to do on behalf of myself and my family.

Exceeded all expectations
I have worked with a few dozen attorneys over the years in a wide variety of topics, and the experience with Tatyana has been the best. She is smart, knowledgeable, efficient, has excellent communication skills, and truly represents the interests of her clients. Communicating with Tatyana was very easy. She is very responsive, and she understood everything quickly and with attention to detail. She always gave me good and honest advice but will support any course of action that I decided to take. Tatyana is very effective; she executes fast and with accuracy. All the documents produced exceeded my expectations and required little or no modifications. I was impressed by her competence and pleasantly surprised that I could get time in her schedule.

Outstanding Attorney
It’s a great pleasure to highly recommend Ms. Tatyana Gidirimski. Recognizing how overwhelmed and traumatized I felt in my first visit, Tatyana reassured me that she would make the painful process of filing for divorce both manageable and humane. She did not let me down at any point in the process. I found Tatyana to be an excellent listener, supportive, responsive, compassionate, ethical, and thorough. She provided information and guidance so I could make an informed decision—all without overwhelming me. Tatyana's wise counsel kept me on-track, providing a step-by-step approach to next steps in the process. I am forever grateful to Tatyana for her dedication to my case.

Exceptional Attorney, Outstanding Results
During my divorce and post-divorce life I have been working with several attorneys. However, Tatyana impressed me the most. I got incredibly fortunate to find her through Avvo.com. Tatyana is an exceptional attorney with so many qualities setting her apart. Tatyana is a great listener with an outstanding attention to details. When you talk to her, you get 100% of her attention. She asks very relevant questions and analyses all the information made available to her. She is super knowledgeable and experienced. Based on her knowledge and expertise, she develops the best strategy to win the case. She is very result oriented. Tatyana fought for me and for my son like a true warrior. Tatyana is very efficient. In my case, she came up with a game plan that minimized the costs and maximized the result. She is a very empathetic and caring person. Throughout the process I felt very protected and supported. I am so appreciative and grateful that all my numerous questions were quickly answered by Tatyana and her team. In my experience, many attorneys treat clients like a source of revenue instead of a person. On contrary, with Tatyana I always was treated like a person and a top priority. I highly recommend hiring Tatyana for any family matters. She is absolutely the best in this field!

Exceptional Family Lawyer!
Tatyana was referred to me by a friend and I'm super happy that she was able to work on my divorce case in 2019. She stayed focused and dedicated to the case all the time and we had very good results, not to mention that Tatyana convinced the other party to go on mediation, which saved me a lot of money. In 2021 my ex-wife filed a contempt against me, and I couldn't imagine hiring anybody other than Tatyana again. I was preparing for the worst, but results were exceptional! The contempt was fully declined, and she also done additional work that was super beneficial for me and our child. Tatyana is a great fighter with strong lawyer skills. She is extremely responsive and doesn't waste your time. Huge thanks to her for representing me.

Excellent Lawyer, Outstanding results
Tatyana was referred to me by a friend who is a lawyer/litigator. I personally have quite a bit of experience working with lawyers from my prior job. Tatyana has strong work ethics, she is responsive, incredibly knowledgeable about various aspect of the law and is very detailed. My case went all away to trial and I was impressed by how well prepared she was and how well she handled the trial. I knew that if I didn't win my case, I couldn't blame it on my lawyer. In the end, she won my case with an outstanding outcome. Rate wise, compared to the market, Tatyana's rate is more than reasonable. She is not looking at her personal gain when she works on a case. Lastly, a divorce is a very stressful and emotional experience. Tatyana has excellent people's skills to help the client navigate through this. Bottom line: I highly recommend Tatyana.

Exceptional Family Law Attorney
My experience with Tatyana was exceptional. I was so impressed with how professional, empathetic and eloquent she was with every aspect of my high conflict divorce. As soon as I met with her, I immediately felt she had my best interests in mind. Tatyana was honest about what I could expect and followed through with everything we discussed. She listened to me and remained steady and focused when I became so frustrated with the process. Emails and phone calls were answered quickly and she always made me feel protected. And most importantly, throughout the process, she remained cognizant of the needs of my children, and comprehended and respected my values. She was meticulous in her work and extremely knowledgeable. I could not have asked for a better attorney to be by my side. I would highly recommend Tatyana to anyone seeking legal counsel in family law matters.

Exceptional divorce attorney
Words aren't enough to describe what an incredible attorney she is ! She is knowledgeable, thorough reasonable and caring. She makes me feel at ease throughout the whole process . Given the complexity of my case involving disability, 401K and pension. I would highly recommend her !

Would recommen her to any person in tough divorce.
I had Tatiana as my attorney for almost 6 months, and had other two prior to her for another 6 with a very difficult case on my hands. If your case is difficult, and opposing party is very aggressive, Tatiana would do great job! She is very practical and does not waste any time responding to crappie claims or getting into countless email conversations with opposing party. She is very responsive and professional. She was able to achieve for me what other 2 attorneys were not, and she has done it with at most efficiency. At the end I felt that I ended up with a great deal that was truly fair, she was able to solve multiple hard core issues. Many thanks to her, great attorney, ad great representation for man.

Highly recommended
I selected Tatyana after finding her profile here on Avvo. I was fortunate to have made the right choice. She provided superb legal guidance on a non-compete agreement. She was very responsive to the many emails and voice mails that I left for her. She kept me well informed throughout the process. Highly recommended.

Excellent Attorney
Tatyana was recommended to me from a close personal friend. Divorce is never an easy decision and I really appreciated how she worked with me, explaining the process and what to expect. She is very knowledgeable of the law and pragmatic. She was very focused on my case and she was always responsive and reachable by email or phone when I had questions and provided thoughtful creative solutions to resolving sticking points, especially with the parenting plan. During mediation and court hearings she was organized and well prepared when presenting. She spoke effectively and concisely, and I always felt well represented. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a family law attorney. If the need should ever rise again I would definitely use her again. This review wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the support staff as well. The paralegal (Ann) assigned to my case was very helpful and responsive with answering questions, getting documents ready for filing and responding to late night emails. I felt like they were with in this with me.
