"Allison Holzman is an excellent family law attorney. My post-divorce custody matter was highly contentious and extremely complex. She threw herself into my case, caring about my situation, and got me the desired outcome. She was always available to me and kept me informed every step of the way. Allison is extremely knowledgeable, very professional and aggressive when warranted. I have personally recommended her already and will continue to do so." L.T., Cranford
