Getting a divorce is a traumatizing experience for both yourself and your family... Carolyn was able to navigate and strategize both what was important to me and my children and for this I am truly thankful of. She was extremely diligent, detailed and provided the guidance necessary for someone not familiar with what is in front of them both short and long term. I would highly recommend the Gelman & Associates for any family disputes and/or Separation proceedings.

The law firm of Gelman & Associates is the sole reason I won my legal battle against a very powerful and resourceful firm. The skill, expertise, dedication and professionalism of all the lawyers, clerks and others that I dealt with at Gelman was evident every step of the way. They were also highly thorough, practical, supportive and compassionate. My legal team, compiled of many years of experience, was awesome. With greatest appreciation and the highest of recommendations, I thank you!

Wonderful team of experienced family law lawyers. Tough, yet compassionate. I would highly recommend! They are caring and work extremely hard to make sure clients are consistently communicated with. Have recommended Lisa Gelman's law firm to multiple friends, each of whom has been extremely impressed by the calibre of her associates. They are caring, smart and professional. I trust Lisa Gelman explicitly: she is brilliant and full of integrity.

I had the pleasure of recently working with Gelman & Associates, in particular, Lisa Gelman, on an important matter. Lisa was informative, responsive and extremely easy to work with. I was also lucky enough to work with other members of her firm and found them to be equally professional. I will not hesitate to work with Gelman & Associates in the future and recommend them to friends, colleagues and anyone looking for flawless service from a family law firm.
