“Possibly the Best Matrimonial attorney in Orange County NY”

Mark Stern was the first and only Lawyer that was sincere enough with my case to actually explain the process in a way that I could understand what was happening. I had a rather complex divorce, it nearly bankrupted me and I was so annoyed with the lack of follow through from three prior lawyers that I decided to go it alone and represent myself. However, when I needed help, Mark was there. He IS a professional. He holds his staff to accountability and high standards. Everyone is treated like family when you walk in his door. He acted when he said he would do something, and held himself to the dates he promised. He is calm and collected, unemotional when dealing with the facts and this helps get your case right to the point. His advice was never wrong in the 18 months I used him, and he is constantly updating his wealth of knowledge by pulling out the most recent case law for examples in your case. I found no grammatical errors in his work, whereas some of the papers I reviewed from other matrimonial lawyers were absolutely littered with errors. Quite possibly the best matrimonial attorney in Orange County, and well worth his compensation.

“Top Notch”

I retained Mr. Stern on two separate matters. The first was to recover for personal injuries I sustained in a fall, the second was for a real estate transaction. In the first instance, Mr. Stern aggressively pursued my best interests in dealing with adverse counsel and the insurance company. Mr. Stern ultimately got all of my medical bills paid, as well as obtaining a well-deserved award for my pain and suffering. In the second matter, I sold my home. Mr. Stern and his extremely capable and compassionate staff were able to put all the real estate ducks in perfect alignment. The entire transaction proceeded without the usual trauma and drama that normally accompanies real estate matters. In both cases, Mr. Stern proved himself to be completely in charge, compassionate, capable, and more than fair in the fee arena. All things stressful were absorbed by Mr. Stern and his friendly and attentive staff. I highly recommend this attorney.

Mark has represented me over the years to buy a couple of homes. I am certainly not his biggest client, by far, but anytime I called he always took the time to answer my questions, give advice when asked and never made me feel like he was rushing me off the phone. He has taken care of my will and treated the process with the utmost care and attention to detail. I think he was even more serious about the process than me.
