Read what some New Jersey family law clients have said about Herbert & Weiss
Following a very draining four-year-long dispute over a house that I co-owned with my ex-husband following our divorce, I decided to enlist the help of Herbert & Weiss in order to finally expedite the settlement of this issue. Helene Herbert was instrumental in stepping in, taking charge, and resolving in a few short months what could have taken another couple years on my own. From the very first day I spoke to her about my situation, she made me feel confident and assured that the problem could be resolved swiftly and easily, and she was right. I don’t know what I would have done without her!
I was desperate and at my wit’s end when I contacted Ms. Herbert for assistance, but she quickly took action to alleviate me of the stress and anxiety of the situation in a professional and efficient manner. I regret the many years that I spent trying to resolve the problem with my ex-husband on my own, and not seeking legal counsel sooner. A lot of time and effort (and headaches!) would have been avoided if I had contacted Herbert & Weiss sooner. Working with Ms. Herbert on this matter was truly effortless, and was one of the best decisions I ever made. She handled everything, from start to end, and brought about a resolution to the situation quicker than I could have ever imagined.
Ms. Herbert is a true professional in every sense of the word. She took the time to get to know me, understand every aspect of my case, and move forward with navigating the legal system in the proper way for me. Beyond her meticulous and thorough work ethic, Ms. Herbert is a genuinely great human being. She is caring, compassionate, and all-around sincere in every way. Similarly, I enjoyed working with everyone else at the firm just as much also. Whenever Ms. Weiss would assist with my case, she demonstrated the same level of diligence and professionalism as Ms. Herbert, and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Even the office staff were always helpful, well-informed, attentive, and extremely pleasant to work with. The Herbert & Weiss law firm is truly reflective of an organized and cohesive family, and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience in working with them.
Ms. Herbert turned an extremely stressful situation for me into an effortless, quick process. I can’t thank her enough for all of her thorough and diligent work on my case. I was proud to refer to her as my attorney, and now today I’m happy to call her a friend.

After having hired two other firms to represent me in my highly contentious divorce, I felt dejected and financially drained without an end in sight. Out of desperation to protect my children, I sought out another firm to represent me and was referred to Herbert & Weiss by a friend. My entire experience in the divorce process was finally set on the right track and ultimately settled in my favor as a result.
From the beginning, Helene helped put my mind at ease. She took great care in attention to detail, making sure she truly understood every aspect of my case along with what was important to me, which involved the custody of young children, child support, division of marital assets, and my ex-husband’s request for spousal support.
Helene had the knowledge and fortitude necessary to ask the right questions and use the appropriate information to benefit my case and bring settlement to fruition. More importantly she did an amazing job keeping me informed and teaching me about the overall process to ensure I was comfortable and well-informed at all times.
Helene is courteous, patient, and simply a wonderful human being with strong ethics, which is hard to come by these days. Don’t be mis-led by her pleasant demeanor, I was amazed to watch Helene in action. She really knows when to turn it up and how to work around the strengths and take advantage of the weaknesses of her opposition. I was proud to have her by my side then, and still turn to Herbert & Weiss for all my legal matters, including updating my Will, Real Estate transactions, Child Support issues, and more.
Honesty and integrity permeate Helene’s personality and work ethic. It was evident in the court house that she is highly respected by her own peers and judges and I was extremely fortunate to be represented by such fine counsel during my divorce.
