Testimonials

"In the middle of a crisis, like a divorce where you need a lawyer, you need someone who can help you make sense of just about everything. Michele and Liz are an incredible team. They focus on your goals and what you want (they like to point out “it is your life, and when we are gone you have to be happy with this”). They lay out the process and expectations very clearly. They work well with support counsel and outside specialists. You expect your lawyers to be good at the law – it was a wonderful experience to find two people who also have great compassion and sensitivity to what you are going through. They care and it shows in how they and their staff treat you from the first meeting to the last. I highly recommend Michele Lowenstein and Liz Brown."

-Former Client

"A friend of mine had recommended Liz to me when I was exploring steps toward getting a divorce. That period, and the ensuing 1 ½ years to reach conclusion, were the most difficult time in my life. I never thought I would need to take this action. That said, it is of utmost importance to find the right people to receive the necessary support for gracefully managing and actually surviving such a decision, and the consequences of ending a long-term marriage. My commitment to work with Liz and her team was key to accomplishing my goal. During the process of the divorce, I learned a tremendous lot – about myself, about people, about the law – and about working with a lawyer who has the best in mind for the person who comes and asks for professional help to get support and guidance throughout a long, painful, and deep-down unwanted - but utterly necessary and therefore unavoidable step in one’s life. Liz has remarkable traits that were key for me to reach my goal. She is a very knowledgeable lawyer, she is kind and understanding, very responsive and patient, and she is very supportive, while maintaining a realistic outlook and pursuing a path to success -despite the pain that comes with the process. I could not have found a better lawyer and a more supportive team than the one in her office. I received what I perceived as the best professional and strategic guidance. During the process, I found that I could build trust with Liz and rely on her, which enabled me to manage my situation and reach conclusion while keeping my dignity intact, my professional life in order, and surviving the psychological stress of my divorce. I do not wish this experience to anyone, but if one concludes that a divorce is a necessary step, I recommend Liz Brown with my highest enthusiasm and without any reservations."
