I definitely recommend Sylvia Pociask if you are looking for a divorce lawyer. She is very professional and straight forward. She is very knowledgeable about family law and has a great calming sense about her. If you’re going through a divorce chances are you need someone that can keep you calm throughout the process. I was very fortunate to have Sylvia on my side.

Melissa is a fantastic and extremely knowledgeable attorney. She fights hard for her clients and works tirelessly to know your case inside and out. She is personable and attentive to your/your cases needs. I highly recommend her and wouldn’t trust anyone else with my most important (my family) issues.

Divorce is one of the hardest times in your life. You need someone who understands the law and understands you and the circumstances you are going through. Sylvia took the time to go through step by step with me, clearly explaining the process and my options. She worked hard with me to help me make the right choices and kept me from making any choices that would not be best for me and my family. There was no attempt to run up my bill and she did what I asked, she did not push a different agenda. In the end she got a settlement resolved, there was no need to fight over things in a court in front of a judge. I always felt she had my back and my interest in mind. Professional, and humane, these are good traits in someone you have to trust will be on your side. Sylvia has those traits
