Dear David, Beth and Bridget,
Just a quick, heartfelt note to thank you for everything you have done for me financially, emotionally, and psychologically. You have made the last two years as tolerable and pleasant as such a circumstance could be. Each of you explained the entire nasty divorce process thoroughly and realistically through your eyes and experiences. I appreciate your professionalism and each of your individual personalities: together you are an inimitable team., Sincerely,

Sally C.

To say that my case is high-conflict is an understatement. There were issues of domestic violence, substance abuse and allegations of child abuse that were all present prior to the separation. I hired David to represent me in my divorce and child custody issues based on a recommendation I had received from another attorney. From the beginning David made sure that I understood the process, was informed and let me know that I was in control of my case. With that said, he offered his expertise and guidance (I wish I had listened more from the outset.) Once engaged, he was the only attorney that I used. (In stark contrast, the opposing party had 5 attorneys.) Due to the complexity of the case, the time and financial impact, I had to move to a limited scope basis and even in this capacity, David was extremely responsive and ensured that I had the best representation in front of the judge. The case is still not completely settled but at least there is a resolution of custody and some peace for my children. I owe that in large part to David and his entire team.

God Bless You. You're the Best!

In a time of a great deal of stress mr. Lederman and his staff was very helpful. Mr Lederman kept me in the loop with the process. he is an attorney that knows what he is talking about and the process pretty much went how it was explained to me. Mr Lederman and his staff answered my questions quickly and at times even on the weekends. I appreciated everything they did for me.
