What People Say About us

"MR. STERNBERG took over my divorce case from a previous lawyer who had handled the case up to and including the trial. MR. STERNBERG was successful in convincing the Appeallate Division to correct a multitude of mistakes made by the trial judge. Not only did Mr. Sternberg make the ultimate outcome greatly more palatable,he was successful in creating a landmark precedent in the matrimonial pension field. He greatly enhanced my equitable distribution award and was able to obtain a credit for college tuition I had paid for my son. Mr. Sternberg is the epitome of what an excellent lawyer should be: honest, forthright, compassionate, and a dogged advocate who pursues his client's position relentlessly and succeeds by dint of hard work, superior knowledge of the law and intense focus. He certainly gained my respect as well as the respect of opposing counsel. Mr. Sternberg also assisted me in connection with collateral proceedings such as a mortgage foreclosure proceeding and the support enforcement process and helped me to obtain a reverse mortgage, something which made it feasible to pay off my husband and the bank and still be able to stay in my home. His knowledge of pension law and the matrimonial aspects of social security were very beneficial. I highly recommend Mr. Sternberg. He will exceed your expectations and will be the most impressive attorney you will ever meet."
