Client Reviews

Doreen Yaffa and all of her associates were AMAZING to work with. I always felt protected and well taken care of, no matter what the hurdle. My divorce was final in 6 months, even though it was highly contentious. I could not be more satisfied with Yaffa and Associates, they provided an invaluable service to me and my children.

I had the unfortunate situation of having to get through a divorce with two young children. Being a lawyer myself, this was a difficult and extremely stressful situation. Doreen and every single member of her office made me feel comfortable at all times and we’re there for me every step of the way. If you or anybody you know are going through a divorce, do not talk to any other attorney other then Doreen. She is simply amazing.
