Q&A With Lois M. Brenner, Esq.

Why did you choose to become a divorce lawyer?
I wanted to help parents like me and this offered a good way to do that. As a single mom, I went to law school at night and worked during the day.

What makes Lois M. Brenner, Esq. different from other law firms?
Great strategy and understanding of how to get the best results in dealing with judges, lawyers and couples.

What is your personal philosophy on helping people?
Since people usually haven't been through a divorce before, they need to learn from someone who can make it easier for them.

Tell us about a case you are particularly proud of:
Winning custody for a father when the court-appointed psychiatrist recommended custody for the mother.

What advice do you most often give your clients?
Don't act out. You may be angry and hurt but talk to me before you do anything that might come back to hurt you.

What do you enjoy most about being a divorce attorney?
Helping people manage a difficult situation and finding creative, not obvious, solutions.
