"Amazing, Skilled Mediator
Amazing, Skillful Mediator!!!!
We went to see Lois Brenner for a mediation consultation. We had pretty much decided our marriage was over. We just wanted to end things fair and amicably. Lois Brenner spent so much time with us, and gave us great insight as to how the process would help us, we hired her on the spot. Our sessions thereafter were stealth. She organized us, helped us identify and address all the issues. She showed us how to communicate effectively throughout the process. We were able to address all our issues, especially property and finances, arrive at a comfortable settlement agreement, and now we are waiting for the judge to sign our divorce. What an extraordinary process. I highly recommend Lois Brenner and mediation. She’s super, and mediation really works.

"High Net Worth Professionals"
I am a highly successful money manager and before meeting Lois Brenner, hiring a divorce attorney was a disaster. Two previous divorce attorneys really wasted my funds, and had no savvy when it came to asset and property distribution. Lois Brenner finally fixed the mess I was in. She and her team of financial experts, including attorney Matthew Ehrlich were able to prepare an asset and property distribution that was realistic, keeping in mind tax ramifications, and important distributions and allocations. They negotiated a thorough and financially sound divorce settlement. If you have a lot of assets, just any divorce attorney won’t do. You really need someone with a lot of knowledge. Lois Brenner and Matthew Ehrlich were really impressive. Thanks!!

I can’t say enough about Lois Brenner. She saved my life. I was really being abused by my husband. I wanted a divorce, but I was scared to leave. Hiring her provided me with a support system that helped me break free of a destructive marriage. She, along with her team of professionals, and her litigation colleague Matt really gave me the backbone to step up and out. My children are safe, I’m back at work, and we are no longer afraid. The ongoing legal and personal support made all of this possible. Working with Lois and Matt was a life-changing experience.

"Like at First Sight!"
"Like at First Sight!"
We consulted Lois on the best, most cost-effective way to get divorced. First, she extended a free in-office consultation to us. It was supposed to be one hour; it was an hour and a half. She was gracious, didn’t rush us, explained thoroughly all the ins and outs of going to court, and answered thoroughly lots of our questions. She also shared lots of great information on divorce mediation, which we really knew nothing about, and now we have decided mediation will be the best route for us. We knew in the first 10 minutes that we really liked and trusted her. We are starting our mediation process with her next week. We are really looking forward to working with her. We feel strongly she is the best person for us.

Lois Brenner is a Warrior for men
When I first decided to hire a divorce attorney, I thought a male attorney would be best. Lois Brenner really surprised me. Although she has written a divorce book on women’s rights, she is totally an advocate for men as well. She really understood how much I loved my kids, and listened and understood all the horrible things my wife was doing to destroy their relationship with me. She didn’t miss a beat and really went to bat for me. She reached out to my wife’s attorney every time my wife made any attempt to disrupt my visiting our kids and always demanded the best results. She made herself available, even when she was on vacation! Lois has been there every step of the way in these difficult circumstances. I highly recommend her.

I'm Happily Married. Thanks Lois!
Thanks to Lois Brenner our wedding went well because we had our prenuptial agreement in place.
We literally had her draft our prenuptial agreement 2 weeks before our wedding. She was thorough, made suggestions to include things we hadn’t even thought of, and got it done really quickly.
Thanks Lois :)

The most understanding and accommodating Firm
Dealing with this firm was a gift from above. They were very understanding and made the whole process painless. They are open after regular work hours which was super convenient for a working professional. As a Surgeon in NYC going through this process the firm was very accommodating to my changing schedule. I am forever grateful that the firm was able to find a great solution to all issues so that everyone was taken into account and came to a responsible agreement. Thank you Lois Brenner you are the best!

We have Lois Brenner to thank for turning our marriage around. We hired Lois as our mediator when we were considering divorce. When we started working with her and she realized we wanted to try to keep our marriage together she suggested a postnuptial agreement to get our marriage back on track. Having the postnuptial agreement made us both accountable when it came to our issues. Having this doc in place is clearly helping us redefine our marriage in a better way. I don’t know if we will never get divorced, but for now we are respecting each others’ boundaries and are aware of the consequences if we don’t! It was really cool that Ms. Brenner suggested this method as an option. Most divorce attorneys would not have suggested a way for us to try to stay together. She is very talented and unusual in the best possible way. If we choose to take the divorce path eventually we will definitely hire her again. In the meantime we are making it work. She is amazing.

I met Lois Brenner at a networking group. She spoke on divorce and mediation. At the time I was not in need of a divorce attorney but was so impressed I kept her information. Two years later I hired Lois Brenner and I am finally separated from a man who nearly destroyed my life. Although we were able to do this with her in mediation, it was not easy for me. She really kept me strong, and on top of myself. She was helpful with both of us, and encouraged each of us when needed. It was much better than going through the court system. It took a lot less time and saved us money too. I can’t say enough about her. She is a special attorney. I tell everyone who will listen how special she is.

Smart, tough, responsive Attorney !
When my daughter was sideswiped and served with a summons by her husband we called Lois Brenner.
I had met Lois when she was giving a seminar on Marriage and Finances.
I thought she was really smart. I never dreamt I would be calling her to help my daughter.
When we went to see her she put our minds at ease. We immediately knew she was the attorney for us.
She managed to negotiate a really good settlement with my son-in-law’s attorney. She was tough and always returned our phone calls and responded immediately to our emails. We even heard from her on weekends!! She was determined to keep us out of court and guided us every step of the way. She was our Angel!!!

I'm grateful you did not give up on us.
I just wanted to take a moment to personally thank you for the wonderful job you did mediating our separation agreement and putting this document together. You not only saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars but helped avoid what would have been a disastrous future in court.
I'm grateful you did not give up on us.
If I ever am involved in another situation like this, and I hope I never am, I would certainly recommend your services.

Expert, Compassionate Counsel
We were so fortunate have Ms. Brenner's counsel on a very complex divorce and child custody case, involving multiple jurisdictions and special circumstances. Not only does Lois bring a comprehensive understanding of the nuances of family law and custody issues, her background as a medical practitioner also lends a deep understanding of the psychological and emotional dynamics in play. She offered a compassionate, intuitive voice of reason in dealing with our family situation, coupled with the ability to bring total strength and solidity to the table to work through contentious issues with opposing counsel. For any family facing the stressful transition of divorce, I would wholeheartedly recommend Lois. In the arena that is divorce law, which can often feel very mercenary, opportunistic and mean spirited--Lois is a real gift.

We are forever grateful!
Your input on moving out and the living arrangements you presented to us in our Meditation has proven to be very helpful. We did not realize how effective Meditation would be for our situation but you showed us the way and we are forever grateful.

No words can express what you have done for our family!
No words can express what you have done for our family. We have been able to work out our visitation schedules with a much clearer understanding of how to control our behavior for the sake of our children. Your divorce methods really do work!

We saved thousands of dollars!
Thought you might like to know we are doing much better since you helped us. I have returned to school (as you suggested) to continue my education and Paul has a new job and has moved out of state. I am still hurt by what he did, but you certainly helped me move beyond the anger. Working with you encouraged us to take the steps necessary to end the marriage with as little turmoil as possible. Even though I was extremely angry due to his infidelity, you showed us how to end the marriage with dignity. Needless to say it took a lot less time than it would if we had gone to divorce court and we saved thousands of dollars as well!

First, you were so easy to talk to and second, you really know what you are doing!
Thank you for all you have done to help us with our divorce. Two things really impressed me about you: First, you were so easy to talk to and second, you really know what you are doing! Everything you said came true. You were right on when it came to evaluating our situation including our business interests, and the solutions you provided made all the difference. You made getting divorced less difficult than it would have been without you.

Keep up the good work!
Dear Ms. Brenner,
I had seen a lot of divorce attorneys before I came to see you and none of them presented me with the options you did. Once you explained how meditation works, and my wife came on board, it made the divorce less complicated and much less expensive. You were professional and it certainly helped that you understood my wife’s alcohol issues and how it affected our lives and how it was impacting our attempts to end the marriage. Now that the marriage is over, my wife has continued to see the therapist you recommended and is turning her life around. Keep up the good work!

I didn’t expect to find a divorce attorney as amazing as you!
I didn’t expect to find a divorce attorney as amazing as you. Since it was necessary for me to fight, you gave me the courage to do so. Stay in touch.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
This letter is a long time coming but Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Jeff and I are in a much better place and we feel meditation was the right thing for us. Since we couldn’t live together any more as husband and wife, and wanted our divorce to be amicable, it was a relief to meet an attorney who encouraged our desire to remain civil. It was a comfort to have you on our side and to guide us through the painful divorce process with tremendous skill and empathy.

Thank you for doing such a tremendous job!
Dear Ms. Brenner,
Going through a divorce raises a lot of questions. We thought going to divorce court was our only option. Even though we were very confused, you explained the law and introduced us to possibilities we hadn’t even thought of. Thank you for doing such a tremendous job and for moving it along so quickly. Negotiating and obtaining an Uncontested divorce was the right way for us to go. We were lucky to find a divorce attorney like you willing to show us the way!

You are truly the best divorce attorney in New York!
I can’t thank you enough for all you have done. When I first thought about getting a divorce, I felt overwhelmed and did not know where to turn. I had read your divorce book and looked at your website and found the courage to call you. Little did I know you were going to change my life for the better. You put my husband and me at ease and were the voice of reason when we could not agree on anything. Thanks to you I have moved on with my life. You are truly the best divorce attorney in New York!
