Family Law

I consulted with Eva Juncker at Paley Rothman concerning divorcing my husband, knowing that one of her practice areas is LGBT family law. We are a two-father family with two young children. The initial consultation was intended as a fact-finding mission for myself, and I appreciated the depth of knowledge and advice that she provided. I wasn't ready at that time to retain her as my attorney, since I was still trying to decide if separation/divorce was something I wanted. Three months later, when I had decided to pursue a divorce, I contacted her office to schedule a second meeting, and I was impressed with the professionalism of her support staff. They were fully prepared to pick up from where we had left off. Throughout this very personal ordeal, the legal services and support provided by Eva Juncker and her colleagues, have made this very unpleasant and ongoing experience manageable for me, and I feel confident that I will be able to achieve the best possible outcome for myself and my children because of the quality of the team standing beside me. Each step of the way, she has discussed multiple strategies with me, all of them with their own particular merits and risks, and she has helped me to make the best possible decisions. I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone faced with a family law challenge.
