See what parents are saying

""Both attorneys Jenny Berse and Sam Berse did an exceptional job in representing my interest as a custodial parent and my child's in court against a highly litigious ex-spouse. They're knowledgeable and sensitive to the issues of parents' rights. Extremely diplomatic in working with the court and adversaries. Aggressive only when needed. Respected by their colleagues. They don't set unrealistic expectations, but work in integrity—always looking for the best way to keep children safe in a highly litigious matter. My ex had the financial resources to take me to court multiple times. I, however, always had the best representation through these attorneys (whom money couldn't even buy) to represent my rights and my child's. In the unfortunate circumstance of litigation, hire Jenny and Sam to do the necessary work in preserving your parental rights. When you're forced to litigate, go to the best of the BEST, Berse Law!"-" T.T., Linden

""I first used Jenny for her services about seven years ago for family law. When I first met her, she was completely understanding of my situation and genuinely cared. She was by my side through all these years for everything I needed, day or night. She was extremely professional and aggressive in court, and empathetic and like family to me outside of court. I’ve never met an attorney like her. She had quality that was expected and needed in an attorney that I’ve always looked for. Even after one of our court sessions was over, she checked up on me. When I was ready for another hearing, she was right by my side, even if it was a year later. For seven years, she looked out for my best interest and my children’s like they were her own for court. Even though it’s been a couple years since I’ve used her services, I couldn’t imagine walking into a courtroom without her. She made me feel confident, safe and optimistic for what was ahead, and always explained everything to me and did all that I’ve asked of her. She was never like other attorneys I've used in the past where they were out for themselves and only wanted my money or for the judgments to go their way. She truly listened to my wants and for that, I'll be forever grateful and a client for as long as she offers her services." " -J.C., Southampton

""The Berse's interests are to protect and advocate for our children. They also believe that picking a winning parent means that the children always lose, because children usually need both parents. They focus on the needs of 21st-century families instead of being guided by a 1950s view of the family. The Berses believe and fight for the future generations and believe they should be given tools to deal with adult issues, and that they'll need to exhibit the right behaviors when they're married and have children of their own. Great firm!"" -S.H., Cranford

""My divorce was extremely difficult and entering that courthouse always had me reeling, but Jenny and Sam always assured me that everything would be okay, and they advocated for me not as just their client, but as an abused woman. I had complete trust in them and knew they always had myself and my children’s best interest as their top priority. My first bits of confidence I regained after my abusive relationship came from them. Seeing them in that courtroom fight for me, I began to fight for myself. They're more than lawyers; to me, they became my champions." -" A.B., South Plainfield

""Sam is so smart, extremely articulate and so amazing at speaking publicly. He truly studies your case and gets to know you as a person so he's able to connect with the judge when he represents you. He has a lot of experiences and training, which is the reason that he's so knowledgeable. I'd recommend Sam Berse to anyone, any day."" -J.D., Newark

""Jenny and Sam Berse are fantastic attorneys. They take on your family matter as if they are part of your family! They take the time to understand (and always remember) every intricate detail of your case-which is important, but rarely seen with others in the industry. They both are exceptional at communicating your case to the courts and all involved. They become a partner with you, fighting for your goals. They work tirelessly, have excellent relationships with the courts and communicate well with you. They work smart. When they say they can do something they achieve it! There are no games. It’s strictly professionalism and hard work. They do not give in or give up. Choosing an attorney is a big decision as it will impact the trajectory of your case and many aspects of your life. No one else even comes close to what you will receive with the Berse Law Firm!" " J.M., West Long Branch

""Jenny and Sam treated my case like it was always their top priority. They always continued to fight for me and were always available to answers any questions I had along the way. I felt like family to them, I felt like they actually cared about my outcome and would even check in on me at times to see how things were with me and my family during and after my case was resolved. Jenny and Sam being my third attorneys during my 2 year long divorce/custody battle made me realize very quickly that the attorney you chose to work with really does matter when going through this process. Thank you Jenny & Sam!"" J.M., Westfield

""Jenny and Sam helped my family during a long complicated divorce and protected my grandson as if he was part of their family. They went above and beyond during the process, and we will be forever grateful for the work they put in to get the results we were fighting for. They are extremely communicative and really listen. They work right by your side the entire way through. I highly recommend Berse Law."" S.M., Westfield

""Jenny and her son Sam are partners and they provide 24 hour support to clients. They go over and above to provide excellent care to clients. For example, as a sibling to a client in distress Jenny even helped me to understand the options available and gave me sound advice too."" N.N., North Brunswick
