Testimonials

“Visitation and custody”
Posted by Alicia O.

I am beyond thankful I had Evan on my side during a time of anxiety and uncertainty regarding my infants custody and visitations. I met various attorneys before choosing Evan , once I met him I felt instant relief. Evan never guaranteed an outcome but did assure me he had experience with similar cases. Evan was always honest ,informative and explained possible results . During court appearances Evan was prepared it was evident he spend hours working on my case in contrary to opposing council. Evan was outstanding defending My son’s and I’s interest in the court room. Evan was always a call away If I had any questions which were many at times his fixed fee approach assured me any call made wasn’t added to my bill. After a year of working on my case Evan got me almost exactly what I wanted. I will always be grateful for Evan he is wonderful , humorous and personable. If you are looking for a family attorney He’s the MAN, you will not regret it!

Thank you Evan for all you have done for my family!!!

“Thorough and throughtful”

Evan navigated me through the construction of a premarital agreement. When I hired Evan, I asked him to provide me with an enforceable premarital agreement that clearly portrayed my intentions regarding our marital/personal property and was enforceable. He effectively provided that, but in addition helped me understand more clearly exactly what I wanted in the agreement and the consequences thereof. He was not just a “yes man,” but made sure I fully understood what I wanted. This resulted in a stronger agreement than I expected, and I am grateful for Evan’s diligence. In short, Evan helped me clarify what I wanted and then made that into a strong, enforceable document.

Evan also worked on a very tight timeline. This was entirely my fault; I came to him late in the game. Nevertheless, Evan still prepared my document with great care. I of course recommend starting earlier than I did, and am extra grateful for Evan’s fast turnaround time.

Evan is a great Attorney.  He is willing to work with the client to ensure the best possible result for everyone involved.  I definitely fell like he cares about his clients and is interested in understanding their specific situation.  Evan is incredibly helpful in working through the mountains of documents necessary in every legal case.  The amazing part is that I never met him in person.  He was able to work my case entirely by phone and internet.  Evan’s use of technology is well beyond any typical attorney.

If you need a great attorney hire Evan Braunstein.

I will start by saying that divorce is not a pleasant avenue to travel through. The process of it all is alien to a person who is a first time traveler down this road. Not only is one not sure how many turns there are or how fast or slow the journey will take (or if one will even come out of this ok) but there are also lots of family and friends with tons of opinions about what they believe should be happening in at any given time through this path. After a lot of considering I knew that the right thing to do for me, my then spouse, and my son was to get a divorce. I knew I had a rough road ahead of me so the best I could do was find an attorney that was reputable and that could guide me through this field of land mines. I met Evan and I told him my situation and we commenced the journey (” Into the blind world we have now descended”).

I couldn’t have found better guidance than with Evan. He was truly there every step of the way with boundless amounts of patience and knowledge. While I was in fear he was reassuring and when I was veering off the path due to lack of understanding (due to emotionally distress that just comes in with the divorce) he almost effortlessly guided me back straight. Evan listens and asks what your ideal route would be if you could take it and then he accommodates your wants with your needs when ever possible. He will do all that he can for you and there is never any doubt in that; once you met him you know. There were many things that I didn’t even know of that I had to start thinking about once Evan brought some things to my attention. The decision making was made easier because of the confidence I had in him representing me.

There is nobody else that I would have rather had as my attorney than Evan. I will be forever thankful I was lucky enough to have him as my attorney, guide, support, and friend through all this. I traveled the journey and saw it to the end with him and while it is scary and unknown he dissipates any kind of anxiety that comes in waves with logic and rational thinking.

Worth. Every. Penny! And then some! You want a lawyer who under promises and over delivers? You want a lawyer who will thoroughly investigate every possible scenario and outcome? You want to win? Then Evan is the answer.

Keen intelligence, just an absolute boss. At first meeting, Evan may not appear to be the incredible warrior that he is judging by his calm exterior but rest assured…he will slay for you. Two years of an extremely complex case that Evan just owned. I am absolutely beaming. He held my hand through the nightmare and justice was served after years of defense. You have no idea how much I appreciate this man!

My experience with Mr. Braunstein was wonderful given the circumstances (divorce/complex custody issues). Mr. Braunstein provided thoughtful and out-of-the-box suggestions to help resolve some of our most complex issues. His suggestions confirmed that he wasn’t just giving “legal advice” but advice that was in the best interest of our children from the standpoint of the present and THEIR future – which is what will be remnant in the years to come when the divorce has long been settled.

Mr. Braunstein was very fair, practical and went above and beyond to follow-up to ensure that all bases were covered. He always made me feel as if he genuinely cared and had our best interest at heart.

I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Braunstein

Evan assisted  me in a very complex custody case, if not for his knowledge and professionalism I may not have gotten the knowledge and information that I needed, given the way the court system and assistance personnel were not helpful. Evan was prompt with all filings and gave me any insight I needed, he was able to work with me on the monetary amount needed for representation and he even followed through with me on a couple of things that need to be done after his retainment ended. A true professional through it all and if I ever need representation in the future he will be my first call.

Finding the right lawyer these days is a complex task.  This is when you wish your best friend was an attorney:  this is because you need someone you can trust implicitly, someone you can rely on and who is not going to let you down, someone who will remember to return your phone calls (or emails) in a timely manner, and let’s not forget the economics in this equation.

Evan Braunstein fitted all of my requirements.  At a time when things could be emotionally draining, he presented a clear and concise plan for my case.  He outlined the different steps clearly, not leaving any questions unanswered. 

The other big advantage for me was to have a flat fee for the services provided presented to me before we began the work.  I did not have to worry about being charged hourly fees for phone calls or emails.  Knowing ahead of time what I would be paying was very helpful.

His use of technology is also a huge advantage.  He uses a secure client portal where documents are posted, and where you can communicate with him.  When you work odd hours like me, it was a huge plus.

Lastly, a courteous man that truly tells you what you are up against.  I highly recommend him, and would definitely use his services should I need them again.  Thank you Evan !!

Respected Legal Counsel, positive outcome

Evan made sure the important outcomes of my divorce were kept in perspective. Decency, avoiding a long drawn out trial, and respect. All of these aspects were well taken care of. He even made sure that the divorce proceedings were not unfair while I was deployed for 8 months.

I can’t thank Evan enough for turning a bad situation into a positive outcome.

In the worst times, you need the right lawyer
Posted by Erik

In 2008 I went through the difficult and hurtful process of divorce. Throughout the months of working with Mr. Braunstein I came to the realization that Mr Braunstein was an invaluable ally. At all times I was kept well informed by office meetings, phone calls, emails and any questions I had were promptly and professionally answered.The fixed fee guideline was reasonable and certain in its progressive phases. I am very thankful that my first experience dealing with a lawyer (especially in that traumatic time), was an asset; not a detriment.
