When dealing with critical matters pertaining to your family, nothing is more important. Equally important, is making sure that you put these matters in the hands of someone that you can trust, and without doubt Melissa is that person. I was introduced to Melissa through a trusted family friend, who she had represented in his recent case. He too had no doubt in recommending Melissa, and that fact was very powerful in helping me to make my final decision to work with Melissa. From the very beginning, Melissa was attentive, detail oriented, compassionate, empathetic, and sharp, with an extremely impressive work ethic. Melissa was able to utilize her experience, professionalism, and calm, as well as her candor, to make sure that I was very clear on the law pertaining to my case. Most importantly, Melissa was able to keep me feeling confident and at ease with regard to the path forward during the most stressful, difficult, and uncertain time of my life. Melissa always took the time to understand the complete depth of any situation that factored into my case to ensure the best outcome, while always maintaining the most efficient use of our time. Melisssa and her entire staff were always extremely responsive, professional, and sensitive to the particular elements of my case. During the entire duration, which lasted approximately 2 years, my case was treated with the utmost priority, and Melissa and her team continued to diligently follow up on all open items to keep things moving ahead to closure. I always felt that Melissa did an amazing job of ensuring that she and her staff were available and responsive to deal with critical time sensitive issues related to my case with the highest level of urgency to ultimately ensure the best outcome. I was also very confident in Melissa's ability to manage the communication process with the court, opposing attorneys, and any other parties that were involved with my case with a very high level of tact, timeliness, firmness, and efficiency. In closing, I highly recommend Melissa and her firm, and I am confident that she will do her very best to ensure the most positive outcome for you and your family.

"I couldn't have been happier with Melissa. Not only was she there for me in all aspects of my divorce, she was always available for me. The professionalism, the hard work she put into my case, never hesitated to take my calls are all signs of an exceptional divorce attorney. For me my budget was tight and she always took that into consideration and was very reasonable. After my divorce, she always checked in to see how I was making out and never charged me If I had a question about my agreement. I recommended my sister, her friend and a few of mine. She is tough and direct which is what I wanted and I highly recommend Melissa."

"Melissa B. Zemsky, Esq. represented me during my highly contentious divorce. She was there for me every step of the way. She was organized, responsive, detailed oriented, and aggressive only when necessary. Through the process Melissa reassured me that it would all work out and it did. She was also reasonable with her fees. She made my children her priority and treated me as her priority. She continually checks in with me. Melissa is an attorney who cares and makes it her business to get the best possible results. Highly recommend."
