Divorce Attorney Consultation

“Two for the Price of ONE!!! 

“A year ago, due to the hard work of BOTH  my lawyers, I received an ACOD in Family Court. When my case first started Robert came with me to Family Court.  After meeting with them both it was determined that Christine was going to move forward and represent me each time we needed to go before the Judge. They assured me that every aspect about my case had both of their attention and both of their input. The shame and humiliation I felt when they took on my case overwhelmed me and I never expected to be treated with kindness and respect. However, each time a phone call was made or each time I went to the office I spoke with BOTH of them and we were all on the same page.  Yesterday I received a CONGRATULATIONS note from Christine and Robert that MADE MY DAY! Today I am ACOD Free – CPS Free – I am divorced and have Full Custody of my children.  I highly recommend Christine and Robert and their wonderful staff — my life is forever changed and I am happier then I ever imagined!”

I called to make an appointment for a consultation to discuss a mediated divorce, the office was fantastic with getting me a prompt appointment. When going in all my questions were asked and I left feeling comfortable in my decision to move forward in using the Hornberger/Verbitsky office. Despite a pandemic going on the office still worked diligently to get my papers filed and my divorce complete in a timely manner. Highly recommend!
