5 / 5 stars 
When my wife filed papers for divorce, I chose the attorneys at Blumberg, Cherkoss, Fitz Gibbons & Blumberg. They were professional, honest and always had my best interest in mind. They were always quick to return my phone calls and emails, and never beat around the bush. They will be honest and straight forward with you about your case. Because of all these amazing qualities, I was able to protect my son and actually had child support awarded to me. I can’t thank the attorney Stacy A. Wardle, Esq at Blumberg, Cherkoss, Fitz Gibbons & Blumberg enough for the care and dedication that she put into my case. I recommend this law firm to anybody that is going through a divorce or custody battle.”
