Mr. Nivin is an excellent family lawyer. Compassionate, professional and the fact that he maintains relationship with client after case has been resolved speaks volumes. As a family member who was given the opportunity to witness the proceedings I was very satisfied. Highly recommend.

Joseph was extremely helpful and always available to answer any of my questions. I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and I was treated as a friend rather than a client. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. The process was always explained. Joseph fought hard for me. He went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a great outcome. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney. Thanks Joseph!

I was overwhelmed with the unusual circumstances of my custody battle. After being advised by many well meaning friends and neighbors that I shouldn’t expect the court to rule in my favor, I meet Mr Nivin and he assured me that he would be able to help me secure the terms needed to keep the child safe. Mr. Nivin was very patient and a good listener. His calm manner helped me stay calm and I will always remember Mr. Nivin with gratitude.


Mr. Nivin is very responsive and kind, a rare find in an attorney. His advice was on point and he won the case.


The attorneys were very knowledgeable about the matter I was facing and their careful guidance was helpful. It was an upsetting matter and they understood the emotional as well as the legal challenges that I was facing.


Joseph Nivin is the best lawyer that I have ever worked with. I highly recommend him to all of my friends and family. He was understanding, diligent supportive with my highly sensitive case. He made a very stressful and trying situation much easier on me and my family. Most importantly, he was honest, fair and extremely intelligent. He commands respect and he is a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom.


Amazing person who will go to War for you and fight with everything he has. He went to court and got me the best possible outcome and made me a happy customer.


This is the first time I EVER write a review. Joe was recommended by a very close friend. He advised me the process on a child custody case would take approx. 2 years. He went out of his way to keep my costs down. Seven months later I was awarded full custody of my little girl. Joe Nivin cared and saved her life. Call him for honesty in this tumultuous legal war zone.


Mr. Nivin is caring and has extensive knowledge of the family court system. He was able to advise me on the best legal-solution to take so that I could financially support my children. He handled all paper work and made himself available to me whenever I had any questions. We were able to resolve my case efficiently and amicably. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a family attorney.
