Testimonials

“I hired April for a very complicated and bitter divorce after leaving another well-known attorney. I felt doomed to financial ruins as well as unfair parenting time. This quickly changed. April managed to think of strategies and approaches that never dawned on me. She is so logical and organized. She outshined the adversary. The Judge clearly respected her. She obtained the best possible result for me at a fair price. I am really grateful and highly recommend her to anyone facing a divorce. Great lawyer!” -Sam

“Divorce sucks. But April provided sound recommendations, she aggressively pursued what was reasonable and appropriate, and masterfully worked through every aspect of the process with the strongest understanding of the law. April was understanding and compassionate to my situation. April’s relationships and reputation with peers and judges is very strong in Morris County. I highly recommend April to others.” -Anonymous

“April worked with me over the course of about a year during my divorce. It was a difficult time for me on many levels, so having a good lawyer was critical. April is smart, responsive, thorough, and empathetic. She really helped me get to a good place and get on with the rest of my life. It’s been almost five years now and my divorce agreement has held up very well.” -Tom

“I found Ms. Katz to be the consummate professional in all our interactions. She was attentive, thorough, knowledgeable, and extremely competent. I knew I would be in good hands under her legal guidance. She came highly recommended for her ethics and integrity and I can say I was not disappointed. Throughout our divorce mediation proceedings, she always kept me informed, stayed on top of all relevant issues, presented my concerns and interests in a respectful manner, yet with conviction. Ms. Katz worked diligently for an outcome that would be most beneficial for my future and her calm, professional demeanor on many occasions kept the burden of stress from overwhelming me. I can’t say enough about her competence. I respected her judgment, opinions, and her unwavering persistence in ensuring that I would be given a fair and equitable resolution in my settlement.”-Anonymous
