We were really upset about having to file Bankruptcy and had worked hard to avoid it. After going in to meet with Joanne Reisman at Affordable Legal Services, we felt so much more at peace with the idea and actually saw a way to get through it. Joanne sat with us and discussed the reality of our situation, gave us educated and solid advice, and NEVER made us feel bad about it. Joanne has an extremely detailed understanding of the most current Bankruptcy and Real Estate laws, and a ton of experience in both areas. For us, filing Bankruptcy was a personal disaster and very scary. Joanne calmly guided us through the many different parts of what was to become an extremely successful Bankruptcy. She worked evening hours when needed and made sure we didnâ??t miss a single deadline or detail. Oddly, Bankruptcy was one of the best decisions weâ??ve made in recent years and without Joanne, I can only imagine the nightmare it could have been. Thank you Joanne!

I needed advice and a divorce attorney. Found Joanne and have never regretted it. She was not only an attorney giving legal advice but saw me as the person I am, and the problems I had. She helped me through a difficult time, she guided me through that time. Gave of herself during the whole process. Both as an attorney and adviser.
I recommend her with all my heart.

Over eight years ago I needed an attorney and fate directed me to Joanne Reisman. During the time she was handling my case I not only got to see Joanne work for me as an attorney but also as a truly dicated advocate who went over and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. She is outstanding at what she does and will make sure that she gives you 100% of herself, and this is why if you need an attorney you will be pleased with the services rendered by Joanne. Today, I would not be or have what I have if it were not for the way Joanne fought my case. Thank you to a great lady, attorney and now friend.

I cant recommend Joanne Reisman enough, she saved my life! I went through some really tough legal situations this year and she was there for me every step of the way - from preparing, to making informed decisions, to standing next to me (with the help of a cane because she had hurt her back and could barely walk!) at court. She always called to check on me, returned my calls and emails promptly - really cared about ME and the process I was going through. If you need help this is your attorney! Shes tough, smart, loving, and straight up! Worth every penny and then some! Dont settle for less!

I was in one of those exceptionally ugly custody disputes. I had dismissed my first attorney for very poor performance at a preliminary hearing with catastrophic results. Before I had the opportunity to hire another attorney, opposing council filed for an ex-parte hearing giving me just under 2 days notice. I was in a jam.
I had known Joanne Reisman from childhood, and knew she was an attorney, but never really knew if she was any good or not.
I contacted her and gave her a quick overview of my situation. She immediately referred me to some legal resources, which I checked out, but I wasn't able to pull together another retainer and get the new attorney up to speed in time for the hearing.
I had too much pride to ask Joanne to do that one hearing pro-bono, so I set my efforts to putting together the best pro-se response I could.
As I prepared for court the morning of the hearing, I was terrified at best.
I'm not sure which was more amazing; that Ms. Reisman decided to appear on my behalf the morning of the hearing, on her own personal integrity, or the BEYOND EXCEPTIONAL performance she gave at the hearing with very little background information or case history.
She was an angel of light for me in a very dark hour. Her skills are most certainly worth her bill rate, and probably more. If I had the funds, she would be by far my first choice to represent me through this process.

When venturing into unfamiliar legal territory and not knowing where to begin, I called Joanne. She returned my call promptly, and very patiently discussed my situation with me and gave me all the information I needed so I would know where to start. She was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend her.

Joanne Reisman is an excellent attorney! She is highly competent, honest, reliable, and very down to earth. This attorney never gives her clients the runaround. Rather, her feedback or advice is always straightforward and sound. She is also very personable, which makes it easy to connect with her. She develops a relationship with her clients on both a legal and a personal level.
Furthermore, Joanne returns calls promptly and is very throughout. She is fair and reasonable with her rates and her clients always get the most out of their money. Overall, Joanne is outstanding and I would recommend her to anyone who needs a trustworthy, dependable, and knowledgeable lawyer.

I highly recommend Joanne Reisman as an attorney to anyone needing legal services. Her help was very timely and thorough, and she helped me through a very difficult time in my life with a perfect combination of professional advice and all the action that I needed at exactly the right times. I would not hesitate to ask Joanne to represent me again if I needed legal assistance on any matter.

What I liked the most about Joanne is her level of knowlege and service. She is one of the smartest people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Her prices are very reasonable and she saved me alot of money and headaches during a most difficult divorce.
I highly recommend Joanne Reisman of Affordable Legal Services. She is extremely professional, has an excellent understanding of our legal system and is genuinely interested in representing her clients and their needs to the best of her ability. She does the legal profession proud.
