What Makes Us Different

We understand that most of our clients never expected to have to hire a lawyer—much less a divorce and family law firm. That’s why we take the responsibility of being your divorce lawyer so seriously and guide you through the legal process with exceptional expertise, both in and out of the courtroom.

At the Law Offices of Joshua E. Stern, our goal is to reinvent the way law firms normally operate—through transparency, clear communication and client education. We explain every step of the divorce process. Our clients' needs and wishes are top priority. And we invoice twice a month so there are no billing surprises.

Our exclusive focus on family law and estate planning gives you a superior degree of skill and proficiency in every case. Learn more about our firm >
