Divorce Doesn’t Have To Be Difficult! Alisa provided clear-cut messaging and consultation.Her professionalism and clarity allowed her to work with an open-mind, providing the support to make me to feel confident that my separation would be fair and I would not suffer huge financial loss.

-Matt

A Great Support Network. Alisa and her team used grit and tenacity during my divorce case. I wanted to achieve long term financial support and primary custody of my children and Alisa helped me do just that! She achieved for me 10 years of non-modifiable spousal support and 60% custody. She was recommended to me by a friend and I will pay it forward for the next friend who needs a strong attorney!

-Jeanne

An Attorney Who Will Truly Represent You! The best thing about working with Alisa was the way she was able to communicate very well on my behalf. I was in the middle of a post-divorce case and Alisa assured me that the strategy we chose would work. I am very satisfied with the outcome and results and would recommend her to any friend looking for a great lawyer!

-Edward

A Ball Buster That Gets The Job Done. If my spouse had an issue, I would counsel with Alisa. Her communication and advice made me feel comfortable. One time, Alisa shook me awake when I wanted to just give up. My spouse wanted to only split the debts and keep all the assets, leaving me wanting to quit and give up. But, Alisa talked with me and assured me that even the court would not accept him keeping all the assets and will only split the debts. She was my rock! Because of Alisa, everything was in sync and the custody turned out exactly how I hoped.

-Audrey

She Listens and Offers Good Advice! Alisa kept me grounded with her compassion. When my emotions were running high, she reminded me to look down the road and that my life will improve. In other words, she did not inflame any issues like some other attorneys do (ex., if she/he did that then we should do this). I would absolutely recommend her to any friend who needs an attorney, especially when children are involved. Alisa has the ability to lay the groundwork for a collaborative divorce, allowing the ability for making decisions collectively.

Highly Efficient and Helpful Attorney. Alisa was amazing to work with.  I recently had a name change after divorce (several years after), and she helped me every step of the way.  She made it so easy for me.  Alisa is very efficient, has excellent timely follow up, and was a pure pleasure to work with.  I would highly recommend her and will use her again.

-Laura

A Trusted Advisor. Alisa helped me navigate the most stressful and emotionally draining periods of my life.  She was incredibly responsive and her professional guidance and counsel was invaluable to achieving a divorce settlement that exceeded all my goals and expectations.  I would highly recommend Alisa to anyone who needs an attorney that will demonstrate distinctive value in addressing your family law issues.

Lawyer and Friend. I just want to say that Alisa always made me feel comfortable and at ease talking to her.  She was caring and honest.  What she told me she could get in my divorce, she did.  It was not always easy, but she was always their supporting me.

-Mary

Mother, Lawyer, and Now a Friend. The review title says it all.  Alisa is a great mother, a powerful attorney, and now my friend.  Going through my divorce was the worst experience for me and my family.  The one person I could rely on was Alisa.  Having a reliable and respectful lawyer is EXTREMELY important.

-C.W.

Look No Further, You’ve Found the Best! I went to a trusted friend who is also a well respected attorney in our community for her recommendation of the best attorney to represent me in my divorce/custody case.  She immediately recommended Alisa, and I am so happy she did!  Alisa is the closest thing to hiring a friend of the family.  She cares about your case and she is tenacious, extremely effective, ethical, and professional.  It was obvious to me how well respected she is by her colleagues, Friend of the Court, and the Judges.  She was dedicated to my case, she answered all my questions promptly, and stood by me through thick and thin.  Her incredible knowledge of the law and her devotion to her clients is the reason why she is so successful and I know it made all the difference in my case.  I have heard many horror stories of people not doing their research and hiring the wrong attorney…please do not make that mistake.

-NMK

Thorough and Compassionate. Alisa came highly recommended to me by a very close attorney friend to handle my family law matter.  Her professionalism, thoroughness, compassion and collaborative methodology far exceeded my already-high expectations.  She was able to cut through the “peripheral” issues of a highly difficult case and focus on the “true issues” to achieve a positive outcome for all parties involved in the litigation.  Alisa’s diligence in managing my case from her punctuality to her truly caring about me as a person and not just a “client” was truly refreshing.  It is my pleasure to give Alisa Peskin-Shepherd my highest recommendation in all family law matters.

-David

Best Experience in Divorce Situation! “Ms. Peskin-Shepherd handled a divorce for me in 2006.  Unfortunately, this was not my first divorce, but it was the best experience I have had with any attorney for any legal situation.  She is knowledgeable, acts quickly and concisely, and her professionalism is excellent.  I was divorced in a matter of a few months, and she was instrumental in moving it along so that I could move on.   I would recommend her to anyone who is facing a difficult legal situation and wants the best available help.”   Top qualities:  Great results, Expert, High Integrity.

A Strategic, Professional Guide. Thanks to the experience and great judgment, Alisa’s strategic aptitude and foresight facilitated her to find the best way through this most complicated matter.  I had great comfort of knowing that she has the experience to undertake many of the obstacles that were placed in front of us.

I wanted to thank Alisa for her professional approach in which helped guide me through a very difficult time in my life.  The unique experience of having greater involvement and her consultation of developing strategies and planning gave me the confidence that we were addressing key elements that best fit my needs.  Again, thank you for your hard work and keeping me involved through the whole process. A very satisfied client!
