"Thank goodness Mitch Reichman represented me during my divorce. It could easily have been the divorce from hell going on and on for years. The divorce had everything possible to make it complicated: lots of assets, greed, children, step children, grandchildren, 27 years of marriage, and illness. The first time I met with Mitch he listened incredibly well. The second time we met after I dropped off the voluminous paperwork due to a large business he was prepared. It was obvious that Mitch had taken the time to personally read through the details of the business and the marriage and come up with a strategy. Mitch's attention to detail and his ability to cut through all of the drama associated with divorce is remarkable. The thing that I respect most about Mitch is that he gave me great advice. That advice easily cost Mitch thousands of dollars in billable legal fees for himself and his team. But it was truly the best advice for me. What could have become the divorce from hell was resolved in a timely manner, with a very fair outcome. Anyone going through a divorce would be well served to have the professionalism, experience and leadership of Mitch Reichman on their side."

“Today after some reflection on the trial yesterday and all the events leading up to it, a consistent realization kept re-occurring to me: I was represented by and prepared for trial by a phenomenal legal team whom I owe a great deal of thanks and gratitude to. I know the judge has yet to rule in this case and some unfinished business remains, but today I feel a sense of relief and a load off my shoulders that I have not felt in years. You guys are simply the best and I am lucky I chose you to represent me. Thanks to Sandi for all the coordination, squeezing things in, copying me on all filings, and keeping us all in sync. Thanks to Kathy for all the background work, researching, organizing, follow-up and especially walking me through the court room location and explaining a typical process for this type of trial. Tom, I know you came on the scene towards the end, but Wow! Initially right after the deposition, I have to admit my confidence was shaky. Thanks for boosting my resolve through the coaching sessions, getting me prepared for testimony and all the cross examination that I was about to endure. By the time I walked into the room on Tuesday morning, I felt extremely well prepared for anything and had a sense of conviction that I was going to fight for my rights and stand up for myself. Mitch, regarding everything about this case from the willingness to sign me on as a client, to understanding the complex transactions over many years, to accurately interpreting the dysfunctional dynamics between me and the petitioner, to the numerous drafting and filing of legal documents, to the trial strategy laid out, and the fantastic preparation…..I can’t thank you enough! Just comparing the two pre-trial statements was like night and day. As the trial began, I quickly began to realize how superior my legal team was to the opposing party. From the opening statements, to the cross examination, to the use of witnesses and props, to the adjustments to surprises and time constraints, as far as I am concerned it was an impressive and outstanding job well done! The tag team duo of you and Tom working together was a sight to behold and I was damn glad you were on my side. I want you to know that your effort and passion to win for me in turn gave me new found strength and energy to stand up in that witness chair all day long, look opposing counsel directly in the eye with confidence, conviction and fight for my rights! - Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!”

"I am extremely grateful for Mitch Reichman’s expert advice in helping me navigate a very difficult divorce. He treated me with sincere care and concern, as a person, and not just a case. Mitch is the epitome of class and truly the best around. I wholeheartedly recommend him.”
“Mitch recently represented me during my divorce. My situation was somewhat unique in that I married later in life and thus entered the marriage with substantial financial assets. Protecting these assets and achieving a fair settlement was of utmost importance to me. Mitch can not only “speak the language” of finance but easily understands complicated investment strategies and valuation techniques. That understanding, combined with a wealth of experience, clearly gave us the upper hand in negotiations as community vs. separate property was established. Ultimately a final settlement was reached which essentially achieved all of my initial goals. In addition to his business acumen I found Mitch to be a good friend through the entire process as well. I highly recommend him.”
"I recently had Mitch Reichman, of Jaburg and Wilk, as my lawyer during my divorce. He represented me extremely well in all the different aspects of my divorce, including mediation and the subsequent trial. As a self-made businessman who accumulated most of my wealth during a long marriage, I would strongly recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer who is very knowledgeable in business valuations, sole and separate property issues, spousal support (maintenance), and child custody issues. In particular, his experience in working with expert witnesses concerning the valuations of my multiple business and property holdings was extremely helpful in my case. His knowledge and understanding of the different valuation methods and all facets of valuing a business was the key to successfully ensuring that the court accepted our expert's testimony and values while disregarding the opposing expert's flawed information. Mitch was responsive, proactive, timely and "spot on" providing legal advice to me."
"I have worked with Mitch Reichman for the last 7 years through my divorce as well as post divorce disputes. Mitch continually demonstrates expertise, thoroughness and always listens to my concerns rather than treating me like just another divorce. He took the lead to minimize damage to the future working relationship with my ex-spouse while representing me with strength. Unlike many attorneys Mitch worked to finish the process and not drive up the costs to both parties. I have recommended him to several close friends who were equally thrilled with his expertise and responsiveness."
"Mitch is an attorney you want on your side when you are going through a divorce like mine which involved substantial assets and was complex. Mitch is a very detailed and understanding attorney. He understood my emotions and problems and worked with me explaining the legality of how things work in family law. I was able to get a fair and amicable settlement as a result of Mitch's dedication and hard work. Mitch negotiated hard with the opposing counsel until the eve of the trial and was able to get the settlement signed and completed before trial. He was also ready for trial if the settlement did not occur which helped create the leverage necessary to achieve the results. People often have settler's remorse, however I can say with all certainty that I do not and will not."
"The worst in all of us can emerge when fear and anger are triggered by divorce, issues around money, custody and the sense of loss that accompany the end of a marital relationship. What is so desperately needed during this process is the quiet knowing and the voice of reason that only comes from thirty years of direct experience. The value of having someone who can speak in practical terms about what is truly reasonable, but also likely to be acceptable cannot be calculated in dollars alone. Mitch Reichman is the best person and the best attorney to have in your corner."
"My divorce was a long and painful road, but Mitch looked after me and I’m better protected because of his efforts. He is a professional in a realm of work where clients are emotional, wounded, confused, and angry— and I experienced all of those. I have great respect for his ability to respond to the many difficult and often unfair situations without judgment or malice. He never prevented me from expressing emotions, but always kept me on track with the process. Mitch served me well and I am grateful for his help, honesty, and partnership."
