    I was overwhelmed with the unusual circumstances of my custody battle.

    The attorneys were very knowledgeable about the matter I was facing and their careful guidance was helpful. It was an upsetting matter and they understood the emotional as well as the legal challenges that I was facing.

    This is the first time I EVER write a review. Joe was recommended by a very close friend. He advised me the process on a child custody case would take approx. 2 years. He went out of his way to keep my costs down. Seven months later I was awarded full custody of my little girl. Joe Nivin cared and saved her life. Call him for honesty in this tumultuous legal war zone. Read less

    Mr Nivin is a terrible lawyer. The other reviews are fake. He dragged my case on longer than it needed to be so he could continue to bill me. Additionally he was friends with opposing counsel and once I terminated his services he told opposing counsel information that I told him as my attorney while he represented me. This is privileged information even after you terminate an attorney it is not supposed to be divulged. Opposing counsel tried to use that information against me. I had to pay another attorney a lot of money to fight what he did off. I finally found a good lawyer who resolved my case the first month I hired him. I was with Nivin a few years as he billed me.

    Law Firm Response:

    I am sorry to see this. She had a worthy cause. She previously left a great review. After we parted ways, she asked me to take her case back. Our relationship broke down due to a fee dispute. I never divulged privileged information. I never would.
