I had recently gone through a messy separation from my partner, and the pain, emotional trauma and stress of the experience was compounded by a falsified domestic violence restraining order charge against me. I had never dealt with anything like this or anything legal at all, in fact. I consulted a few attorneys but my instinct led me to go with Alexandra, and I am so happy I did. From the start, Alexandra went the extra mile – she was able to acquire information about my case from the court that other attorneys said they wouldn’t be able to access; she was always responsive, even on weekends; she had multiple strategies on hand, knows the laws inside and out, and thinks on her feet; she makes you rest easy and feel you are in good hands; and perhaps most importantly, Alexandra is deeply perceptive about human nature and interactions, an indispensable and essential asset in the delicate arena of domestic disputes. Throughout this harrowing and emotionally exhausting experience, I felt I not only had an attorney, but a friend and a supporter on my side – advocacy at its best. While we were in court, Alexandra managed to get my ex to drop the charges with a civil agreement between us, no easy task considering the aggression he had shown throughout the whole thing, and she also refunded part of my retainer fee as the case was resolved in one day. Compassionate, professional, thorough, strong, intelligent and yes, firecracker is a great word to describe her – I would strongly recommend Alexandra to anyone for any legal advice they are seeking.
Alexandra took her time listening to my jurisdictional issue, reviewed all previous filings and motions and best of all took the time to explain everything to me. I never felt as though she rushed through our meetings. She gave me her legal opinion – and not just what I wanted to hear. Everytime I called or emailed I had a response the same day. She is very knowledgeable about family law and her civil litigation background is a huge plus. Not only does she know her cases and legal arguments very well she is very intuitive and a great listener. Alexandra is someone I would recommend to anyone who needs a family law attorney.
I hired Alexandra to help me with a child support modification that had I had attempted to do myself but that ended up backfiring on me, with a reduction in support due to the courts own mistakes and an unexpected request to the judge from my ex regarding my income, (which he granted). I needed help filing for a motion for reconsideration and had only 4 days to file.
I first met with Alexandra for an initial consultation, (of which she did not charge me for), after meeting with two other lawyers. I almost didn’t go to our first meeting because I was so exhausted and disappointed with the other attorneys whom hardly looked me in the eye and couldn’t even repeat back to me what I was saying. Alexandra immediately looked through my court filings and found 2 mistakes that the court had made (number of children was imputed at 1, not 3 and the percentage of time with their non custodial father was imputed at 37%, when it was actually around 28-29%). We spoke about my third concern, which had to do with my non-taxable income as an apartment manager, and she gave me some sound advice. The whole time she was attentive, informative, and compassionate. I didn’t hire her on the spot because I was still trying to pull together funds and budget for hiring an attorney. She told me as I was walking out the door that even if I did not use her services that I could call anytime if I had a legal question I needed help with. I hired her the next day.
With only a few days left to file (during a holiday season), she quickly, efficiently, and I should say, beautifully articulated a motion for reconsideration. So then began what we both thought would be a simple motion to correctly adjust child support for my 3 children. Court date was set, see you in 30 days, etc.
It took over a year to finally settle. Although the two mistakes made by the court were easily recognized and corrected at our first hearing, the issue of my non-taxable income was stumping the already incompetent judge. Due only to the this judge’s laziness and inability to recognize those legal statues and the ex’s obstinate attitude about providing a modest increase for his 3 children, we had to go back to court 4 times even though we had provided all the laws and statutes concerning my income to the court.Alexandra not only stuck by me the whole time, but her compassionate ferocity for my case did not wane and actually grew stronger. So much so that at times, I felt that I was her only client. Her dedication to her clients comes across not only professionally, but with personal consideration for their very distressing situations.
Most importantly, Ms. Lavinsky’s understanding of the law is astounding, not just in her ability to write the most astute and beautifully intelligent legal briefs, but her knowledge of the legal system is omnisciently at the tip of her tongue. I fully recognized this at one of our court dates/hearings. We were #21 on the docket, so we had to sit through quite a few hearings before us. As we’re sitting there with the judge fumbling through his post-it noted law books trying to figure out whatever legal statue he had to go by, I leaned over to ask her thoughts.
She explained everything before the judge even found the page he was looking for. Although we ended up finally settling, (just to be over with the ridiculous year of continuances), I would not have been able to come close to what Alexandra achieved in my case AND she was even ready to re-file a new OSC for me.
This woman is a magnificent attorney, brilliant with her knowledge and compassion and will be a badass firecracker of a lawyer that will be dedicated to you and your case.
Alexandra is handling my divorce case. She has been aggressive and knowledgeable. My case is still pending, but so far she has done an excellent job. I would definitely recommend her services.
I was intimidated by all the specific laws detailing the process but Alexandra was there for me and got me a fair judgment to me and my family.
Thank you Alexandra
I was referred to Mr. Lavinsky by a trusted friend for a family law matter. Ms. Lavinsky was factual, went out of her way to be helpful and available, and was prompt in attempting to bring the unpleasant situation to a halt. She was extremely goodhearted. I recommend her highly.
She was very responsive and knew so much and aggressive. She put my mind at ease and relieved me of stress.. She won the case and got the order thrown out. Very knowledgeable and flexible… Great attorney would recommend anytime.
I recently had to appear in court to have a judgment pushed through. Alexandra was informative and attentive throughout the entire process and ensured that I had the pieces in place that I needed to succeed. The biggest compliment I could mention about Alexandra, is that she made me feel like my particular case was important to her and that’s invaluable when you’re going through such a personal and sometimes emotional experience.
Thank you Alexandra!!
Alexandra’s expertise and advice was invaluable during my divorce. Alexandra was consistent, informative and always available. She made me aware of all of my rights and options. We discussed all possible outcomes and made plans for several. She made me aware I had choices and she gave me support to make decisions that were in my best interest. I can’t imagine going through this difficult process without her. I recommend her highly to anyone who needs legal support.
Ms Lavinsky was very accommodating in arranging our first appointment, quick, easy and uncomplicated. Her approach to addressing the issue at hand is very straightforward, yet she gave us plenty of useful information, particularly as far as the legal angle is concerned – as to deciding on future steps to take.
Our issues might require to deal with a county agency. She seems to be as knowledgeable about this particular agency as one could possibly hope for. If we will have to we would continue to stay with her office.
Pleasant and reassuring. There would be no need to look for another attorney in her field if our case would necessitate it.
I had my first consultation with Andrea yesterday and I was so impressed with her level of professionalism and integrity. I have a case that needs to be transferred from out of state and she advised me what to do in my current situation and was very understanding. She didn’t try to take my money with promises of fixing things but advised me how best to handle things for the time being until we can get the case transferred. She was very knowledgeable about how to handle things in different scenarios and I feel confident that when my case is transferred to California she will fight for me until I win.
Alexandra Lavinsky helped me out in every which way possible. She calmed me down and dealt with my legal situation in such a professional manner. She saved me from alot of grief and emotional stress and made things better immediately! She is my go to lawyer for everything, not only entertainment but for every specialty!
Alexandra is straight-shooter and easy to work with. She made me feel comfortable throughout the whole divorce process.She is always readily available when I need her. The whole team is great!
I went to see Alexandra 2 days before I had a scheduled court date. I was extremely nervous about the legal process I was about to go through and had little to no information in how to handle my case; I desperately needed someone knowledgeable to advise me.
Alexandra was efficient, informative and by the time I walked out of her office I felt like I was in control of the situation at hand. We discussed a plan and she walked me through my options and the avenues I could pursue.
Going through most legal matters is usually an ordeal but Alexandra made it digestible and painless. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone needing legal help in family matters.
Alexandra is AWESOME!!!! She helped me out with my follow up hearing. I hired her because my ex husband was giving me a hard time over EVERYTHING when it came to our daughter (child support, medical bills, etc) and it was very draining for me. Alexandra listened to me down to every little detail and helped smooth everything out for me (she put my ex in his place); down to where my spiteful ex is now civil with me (need I say more). She was always there when I needed something, gave me great advice, and responded to all of my emails and returned all of my calls (even for small things). She noted everything that I wanted made sure it was all on record the day we went to court! She is definitely a great catch and I’m so glad I hired her, and thankful for everything she did for me! With Alexandra Lavinsky….you don’t need to look any further!
As a certified paralegal, I am accustomed to helping others in the legal arena, but when it came to helping myself through one of the most difficult times of my life- I was afraid, overwhelmed, felt alone and helpless. A long time friend highly recommended Alexandra. Alexandra immediately greeted me with warmth and professionalism. I felt comfortable to openly discuss all issues. She listened attentively and put my mind at ease with her depth of knowledge and expertise. She was my advocate, she got to know me at a personal level and as a client in your darkest hour, it’s a great feeling to know that your advocate “gets you,” is strong, understands your individual situation(s), and will fight for you.
Alexandra helped me through one of the hardest times in my life. During this time it is hard to keep track of your own best interest. Alexandra watched out for me and kept me from being taken advantage of. Even after the divorce when issues came up (and they do) she was there and worked to resolve them so I could get back to being stress free.
Strong, intelligent, sharp, trustworthy, quick and hard working. She also took the time to listen when I just needed to vent. I knew friend with legal muscle. Thank you Alexandra.
My family law matter was very complex with several issues. I was referred to Alexandra by a former client of hers. When I came to Alexandra I was was extremely stressed! I had sought help from two other Attorneys before coming to her. I stood to lose a lot if not represented by a good attorney. Let me just say that during my very first meeting with Alexandra, she had put my mind at complete ease. Alexandra took the time to listen. She asked me questions so that she could better understand my particular situation. It was immediately obvious to me that she was forming a tactical approach toward a resolution as we conversed about my issues. I was in her office a little more than one hour before she had picked up her phone, made two calls and had managed to resolve three of the concerns I had in my case! Of course the remaining issues went before a Judge.
Alexandra provided excellent, competent representation to me in court. She was aggressive and I must admit, very creative and even crafty in the way she handled my case. I couldn’t believe that with all of the issues I came to her with, she managed to achieve not only a very desirable outcome which was beneficial to all; but she did it having only appeared in court for two hearings. I’m sure that this was due in part to her exceptional negotiating skills which she exercised right away when contacting my ex-wife’s Attorney. I was amazed that I actually got a refund of the unused portion of the retainer I paid her. It wasn’t a whole lot mind you but, my point is, that she did not send me statements with ridiculous unnecessary charges in an attempt to keep my money. I fully expected to pay a little more than the initial retainer I had given her. This was not the case. Instead, I got a little of my hard earned money back. I’m sure this is not the “norm” for a client to receive a refund of an unused retainer; but this was the case with me. This just goes to show that Alexandra is an honest and caring Attorney who understands people and she exercises good business practices.
To her credit, Alexandra really listened and she took whatever time was necessary to understand my situation and my needs. She is an extremely competent, knowledgeable and caring Attorney. She is aggressive when necessary. She was surprisingly accessible to me throughout the entire process. She took the time to return my phone calls when she was not immediately available to speak with me. She kept me informed every step of the way. What more can clients ask of their Attorney? Alexandra got the job done; all the while, keeping me at ease! I would highly recommend her to anyone without any reservation whatsoever!
Thank you so very much Alexandra. :-)
I wanted to represent myself for my divorce for financial reasons but had no idea how to go about the process. I learned that finding an attorney to help me on limited scope basis would be beneficial for a positive outcome. After contacting several attorneys to discuss advising me on how to go about the divorce process, I found out quickly that most wanted large retainers or costly consultation fees to even begin to help me. Fortunately for me, Alexandra was referred by a friend. After contacting Alexandra and explaining my situation, she invited me to come in for a consultation at which time she listened to my concerns and advised me on how to proceed with the divorce. She really made me feel at ease and offered the advice I so desperately needed at the time. Alexandra also informed me that I did not need to retain her and that I could do this on my own and if questions arose along the way, she could answer them for me.All I can say is that after leaving her office, I felt very relieved and confident that I could do this on my own.
My divorce is now final and thanks to Alexandra’s advice, the outcome was positive and I was able to do so without putting myself in severe debt and I can now move forward with my life. I would encourage anyone needing a family law attorney to get in touch with Alexandra, you will be glad you did.
I came to Alexandra with a child support case; she was able to modify my order. She had a lot of knowledge and strategy on how to proceed with the best outcome. I am very satisfied with her work and will definitely recommend her to anyone with a family law case. Thank you for all your help.
I’ve never had a more positive experience with a lawyer. Alexandra was the fourth person I interviewed for my family law case and was by far the most attentive, respectful, knowledgeable and genuine. She made me feel very at ease, heard and taken care of while also exhibiting supreme strength of character and integrity. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
