    An excellent lawyer with knowledge and compassion

    My lawyer, Ingrid Gherman, helped me win custody of my daughters when I had lost all hope! When I hired her, my ex-husband and his lawyer argued that I was mentally unstable, and a bad mother to my daughters. They insisted I should only see my kids under supervision. Ingrid took the time to listen to me and to understand my situation. When we went to court, she was very well prepared and she finally convinced the judge that my ex-husband was not truthful and didn't care about our daughters' well-being, only cared about himself. I have great respect for Ingrid because she is very strong and knows the law; and she is very kind and supportive.

    I totally recommend Ingrid Gherman's legal service

    I trusted Ingrid Gherman to handle a very difficult and delicate legal problem for me which involved my separation and eventual divorce from my husband and the custody and support arrangements of my 2 children. There were many detailed issues that needed to be addressed involving financial issues, the apartment, the car, and so on. Ingrid handled the entire case promptly and professionally. She was also someone I could lean on for support during the whole process. I was always kept informed as the case went along which was a great comfort to me in a very stressful time. Thank you to Ingrid and her wonderful staff. I couldn't have done it without you!


    Humble attorney who is the co-author of famous texts that all divorce lawyers use as reference

    I recently came to this lawyer with an emergency as my spouse was completely unreasonable. Her office made an emergency request of the Judge and we won! I was very pleased. I've come to learn that Ms. Gherman is actually the co-author of some very famous book which apparently all the divorce lawyers use as their guide. Very impressive and you would never know, since she has no airs about her at all.


    A good working relationship with Ingrid for years

    After many years of divorcing my crazy ex husband, my divorce is finally granted! Ingrid has been my attorney throughout the entire process. My ex was impossible, he had no attorney and complicated matters. He was violent even toward the Judge! But Ingrid would not give up on me, even when I used up all my funds due my husband's games! I am so grateful to find an attorney who cared more about my life and didn't abandon me and got the job done. I'm grateful to Ingrid, my children are safe, I was able to relocate away from a crazy man who wasn't paying child support and am looking forward to starting my life finally.

    A wonderful lawyer. If you need a divorce lawyer, I highly recommend Ingrid Gherman

    Almost a year ago, I thought my life was falling apart. Then I found Ingrid Gherman. Previously I had four other attorneys working on my divorce case. All of them fell seriously short of providing me with the help I needed. Either they didn't seem to know what they were doing or long periods of time would elapse before I heard anything from them concerning my case.

    Ms. Gherman knows the law and she really seems to care about it and about the particulars of my case, which was a very complicated one including an appeal and many motions. It seemed to go back and forth forever. But Ingrid was there with me every step of the way. She took to time to explain details and strategies and asked for my input and feedback. This was a new experience for me because my experience with other divorce lawyers was not good at all. They showed indifference, and spoke down to me rather than explaining things in a manner that I could comprehend. I am intimidated by the legal system on top of being totally stressed over my break up with my husband and battle over custody of my two children which broke my heart.

    Anyone who has not been through this type of personal dislocation cannot understand the terror I was experiencing because my life was coming apart. I thought I would never be able to recover.... or to win my case. But that is exactly what happened. And Ingrid was the one who helped my do it. Did I say that she is also a very caring and compassionate person. I didn't think lawyers could be like that. This made me wonder if she really had the stuff to put up a real fight against my husband and his legal representative. I found out in court, however, that she is one tough cookie. She met every tactic and maneuver from the other side with even stronger and more convincing legal challenges. It was a revelation just how effectively Ingrid fought on my behalf.

    Each time she needed to move forward, she always consulted me and kept in constant touch. Getting Ingrid to represent me was the best thing I ever did.
