TESTIMONIALS

Husband Who Wanted to Preserve the Family Assets

Going through a divorce was easily the worst experience of my life.  However, if one is heading down that path, I can think of no one better to work with in New Jersey than Sheryl Seiden and her team of professionals.  Sheryl and her team listened to what was important to me, and did everything in their power to help me realize my wishes while protecting me at the same time.  My divorce was very messy, with the opposing counsel trying everything possible to break me -- but Sheryl stayed the course, acting in the most professional manner, which enabled me to reach a satisfactory result for me, my ex-wife and the children.  Nobody wins in a divorce, but at least in my situation, I feel as though my ex-wife, my children and I are all set up for success as we enter the next chapter of our lives. For that I am eternally grateful.
