"I’ve turned to Joy Rosenthal on a number of occasions for her legal expertise and she has always giving me solid counsel with compassion. Ms. Rosenthal provided me with a second opinion while I was going through a very acrimonious divorce and later she was an unflinching guide as she prepared my last will and testament, ensuring that my only daughter is taken care of if the unthinkable was to happen. Ms. Rosenthal and her assistant always responded in a prompt manner. She was generous with her time and expertise, and her billing reflected that. Given my overwhelming positive experience with Ms. Rosenthal, I have recommended her to countless friends as they navigate their matrimonial and custody issues. She will address your legal issues with tenacity and grace."
"Joy Rosenthal represented me while in mediation and in family court regarding the matters of relocation, custody and child support of my child. I worked with her over the course of a year and a half. This was the most terrifying time in my life, however, as we gain much strength through our battles, I am forever thankful for the guidance Joy gave me. Joy is confident and calm, direct and empowered, smart and intuitive, and was always thinking about what was going to be best for the overall health and future of our family. Never once did I feel mine was just 'another case.' There was never a time I did not have access to her or her assistant when I had questions or concerns. Her office is run with the same thoughtfulness and thoroughness which is exemplified in the work she does. After a long road, the final outcome was a success and continues to be for all involved. At one point, my ex even turned to me after a day at the courthouse and said, 'I wish Joy was MY lawyer.' Is it strange to 'miss' your lawyer? Perhaps a bit unusual, but Joy is that good of a human being."
"I live in California and retained Joy to help me with a legal matter in New York. Even though I was California, she willingly took my case and was easy to work with. She kept me informed every step of the process and when I finally met her a year later, I felt very comfortable with her. She is a fantastic attorney and very knowledgeable about the law. I would retain her again, no hesitation."
"Joy was wonderful to work with in a situation where I was perpetually nervous. She was a great source of information and shared details that were helpful without overwhelming us. Our process ran exactly as she described it; there were no surprises; and the end result was exactly what we needed. Joy is unflappable, very, very smart, and a consummate professional. In rereading this, it looks too good to be true. That's pretty accurate."
"Joy helped me through a very difficult divorce with great empathy and sensitivity for the feelings of everyone involved, all the while keeping an eye out for my future welfare in all legal aspects. She is a true collaborator and worked exceptionally well with my ex's lawyer in helping us craft a separation agreement that continues to be a solid foundation for both of us as we successfully raise our children according to the joint custody agreement Joy co-authored. While interviewing lawyers, Joy struck me as someone with the perfect mix of intelligence, experience and compassion that would hopefully help keep a very emotionally difficult experience focused and productive. Finding the right collaborative attorney is a very personal search and Joy was an excellent choice."
"I had the good fortune of working with Joy, for the two most difficult years of my life. During that time, I was going through a life-changing process, separating from my partner of twelve years and trying to adopt the two young boys that we had raised from infancy. Joy was there for me throughout the entire ordeal. Friends and colleagues told me that I was facing odds that were impossible to beat. She fought to overturn three county decisions and won all three. To say that Joy was 'there for me' would be such an understatement. She went above and beyond, calling me, responding immediately to emails and constantly doing her best to reassure me that we were doing everything we could to reunite me with the boys. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking for a bright, articulate lawyer that treats clients with compassion, empathy and understanding. In a word, she's 'amazing!'"
"My husband and I met Joy in the most devastating time of our life, when he was diagnosed with an advanced cancer. Our life became just upside down without warning, when we were forced to deal with so-called end of life issues. We thought that we needed 'a' lawyer's help, and Joy's name was given by one of my neighbors, who said she was 'good'.
As soon as we started working with her and her assistant, we were touched by their sensible, warm, non-judgmental, and yet most efficient way of handling the time-sensitive matter. While Joy structured the essential core of my husband's living will, she also efficiently explained to us about other legal choices and options. We felt that we were safely taken care of at the catastrophic time. Her work was, thus, not a simple proof of her being 'good', but of being 'incomparable' for us."
"I have known Joy for several years, and I know her to be an excellent and thoughtful attorney. Not only is she effective at client representation, but she's someone who other attorneys can count on and trust for her advice and her opinion. The first time I met Joy, it was in the context of a difficult, bitter, and emotionally taxing child custody case. She was my adversary. The manner in which she negotiated that case resolved it effectively for everyone involved. Her approach is common-sense born from experience. Not only is she an effective advocate, she's also a collaborator and builder of great resolutions. I cannot recommend her more highly."
