"Without Tanya and her time, the really unpleasant experience of getting divorced would have been even worse. They were able to settle the matter very quickly and helped me fit this into my tight schedule allowing me to leave to move abroad for my dissertation research on time without having to delay the trip because of the divorce. They also did all of it within my very tight budget. Thank you so much for your help and dedication to my legal matter!
"Tanya and her Associates are outstanding! What I admire most about Tanya is her knowledge of the law with her keen negotiation skills to foster mediation. Her strategies efficiently resolve conflict leading to the resolution of cases. She and her team have an outstanding work ethic, know what data are needed, and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with such wonderful professionals."

"I found Ms. Helfand's knowledge and tenacity most reassuring during the ordeal of my divorce. She was steadfast in her guidance and was very effective in her negotiations on my behalf. I would recommend her without a second thought."
"Ms. Helfand was very professional and helpful with our bankruptcy case. Her advice was very useful and helped us make the proper decisions for our situation. In addition, she was very supportive during a very difficult time for us. Finally, she set very specific fee expectations and there were no surprises when it was completed. I would use her services again and would recommend her, without question."
"She is Incredible, very quick responding to the other party. Very professional and courteous. I highly recommend her. She has a great passion and love for every single case."
"Tanya and her team were very professional handling my divorce proceedings. She was very proactive in making the other attorney finally get the process moving forward. I would recommend her to anyone looking for legal services."
"Ms. Helfand strategized & processed, both, my Divorce & Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. As both cases were emotionally and legally challenging, Ms. Helfand proved to be an empowering Mentor along the path to clarity for which I am truly grateful.
I highly recommend her legal expertise to anyone who is seeking a confident, savvy & caring attorney to become at peace with self and any legal matters."
"Tanya and her staff provided a level of expertise, advisement and services that were above my expectations. She was honest and forthcoming even when it was not what I wanted to hear. The office staff and other attorneys were all professional and responsive."
"I worked with Tanya and her associates to resolve a billing dispute I had with a physician. They answered all my questions, researched my options, negotiated on my behalf and worked through a negotiation that was amicable. Tanya and her staff were very professional and pleasant to deal with. My only wish was that I had contacted Tanya earlier with my issue to save myself the stress!"
"Excellent divorce attorney. Got the job done in an orderly fashion. Knows her job and knows the system.
She takes the lead, yet is able to follow the clients input when appropriate. Willing to see what is unique to each individual case."
"We found Tanya when our lawyer kept missing appointments and would not return phone calls. She was very responsive and understanding and she provided outstanding service at a reasonable price."
"I would highly recommend Tanya and her firm for legal representation in divorce matters. Tanya exhibits compassion and concern during what is a tumultuous time and she remains steadfast in her desire to achieve the best outcome for her client. Her honesty and trustworthiness combined with her knowledge of divorce law is what propels her beyond the "average" divorce attorney. Should the need arise again, I would contact her immediately for legal consultation."
"I went through two attorneys in over a year trying to get a divorce in a somewhat complicated situation involving someone institutionalized in New Jersey. Though we were originally married in New York, when I realized that the NY judge was unable or unwilling to help with the matter, I decided to see about pursuing the matter in NJ. Tanya and her team spoke with me initially, then took on the research of my situation to see if it looked like they could help. A divorce that looked to me like it would never happen was finalized in months. The team was very communicative, straightforward, knowledgeable and professional during the entire process. Additionally, when it came time to meet with the judge, the judge knew and respected my attorney. Their rapport certainly went a long way in helping the finalization of the divorce that day. I would highly recommend this group."
"Tanya was very caring when I had questions she always got back to me an I had alot of question she went to the court house with me an my husband explained everything what would happen even after we where done with my case she still would answer my questions an what really is great about her was everthing was done quickly and you understand an her staff is just as helpful if anyone asked me for a lawyer I would send them to tanya hefland an if I needed her again for anything else I would hire her she was great with my bankruptcy."
“I would recommend Tanya to anyone who asked me if i knew a good lawyer. she helped me through two of my most stressful problems with ease.very proficient.”
Dear Tanya,”Just a note of thanks for all your help throughout our Prenuptial Agreement process. We’re so glad that’s over. We’ve locked it up and, hopefully, we’ll never have to look at all those documents again.
It was August 31st. There was a blue moon that night, and during the day there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. Perfect.”
Thanks again and all the best -
“I recently went through the divorce process over a very difficult 2 year period. Without question it was the most difficult and trying times of my life emotionally, physically and of course financially. You spend years building up a life and family together with a person and then the divorce process requires you to pull it all apart and somehow divide it equally. It’s a huge understatement to say it’s a daunting task which is realistically not all that feasible without going through a lot of emotional peaks and valleys. I hired Tanya Helfand from the Helfand Group after working with another lawyer for approximately 6 months. I was dissatisfied with my previous lawyer because I didn’t feel like he and I connected on what we were looking to accomplish. Ms. Helfand was very good at quickly getting up to speed on my case and guiding me through the entire divorce process. Throughout, Ms. Helfand helped keep me balanced and grounded to focus on the outcomes and trying to remove the emotion from the process as much as possible. She had no issue with telling me when she thought I was being unreasonable and helped me understand the options and alternatives I was faced with across all various areas, including financial assets, property, IRA’s, and most importantly custody of our children. Ms. Helfand helped ensure that the interests of our children always kept in high consideration. Although I may not have appreciated her as much at the time, because it was such a painful process, I truly appreciate having Ms. Helfand and her team as my lawyers. I feel like I had a partner who worked to understand what was important for me and my children both short and long term and helped us arrive at a place where we could start the next chapter in our lives.”
“I would just like to say I was nervous about filling bankruptcy, but Ms. Helfand and her associates made it easy and comfortable through the whole process. They were always very knowledgeable no matter who I talked to. I would recommend anybody to call Ms. Helfand for all of your legal matters.”
“Tanya along with her assistant were knowledgeable regarding the steps of the process. Tanya along with her assistant Ann Marie reminded me that sometimes people go through tough financial times and that I was not an idiot for being in the situation that I was in. The office staff made all necessary photocopies so basically my legal fees included everything.”
“I was very pleased when I started inquiring about filing for bankruptcy. Ms. Helfand and her staff made me feel I had a friend. Everyone was very helpful and put me at ease. And if you have a question nobody makes you feel like you’re imposing or asking for too much. A very pleasant experience.”
To Tanya N. Helfand
“Thank you for helping me with my case of bankruptcy. When I got to your office I was nervous and I wasn’t very sure if I would be able to come out of all the trouble I was in. As a lawyer you guided me, as a person you gave me confidence. I do believe in Earth Angels. Thank you for helping me and guiding me on my difficult times.”
“Ms. Helfand received a worried client and a small case and treated both of them with dignity and considered all my issues as her number one priority. She handled my paperwork and all our meetings with compassion and a professionalism that made my situation easier to comprehend and handle. I would definitely ask upon her service again and will refer Ms. Helfand and her staff to all that need an experienced lawyer. Do not hesitate to call upon her expertise in all aspects of law.”
“Extremely efficient and professional. Most gracious and great coffee!”
“I believe that I would not have been able to accomplish the difficult task of my bankruptcy had it not been for the legal knowledge of Ms. Helfand and the support of Ann Marie. Thank you for helping me to re-start our lives.”
Sincerely – C.M.
“I had a very good expirience with this firm. They advocated equitably for the needs of me and my children.”
– Divorce client
“Class act from start to finish could not be anymore satisfied! Tanya tells you the truth and allows you to decide from there on.”
“I was very happy with the way they handled my divorce. Tanya was very patient and explained everything clearly. Tanya knew my financial situation and worked with me to come to a quick resolution. Her office staff was very courteous and professional and left messages for Tanya who returned calls in a timely manner if they could not help me themselves.”
“I used Helfand & Associates 3 times and was very happy with my results. Will definitely use again if needed.”
“I felt that the professionalism and experience of my lawyer and staff were top-notch. I would refer family and friends to this office.”
“The office of Helfand & Associates took care and understanding of my case and approached it with professionalism and with the utmost dignity for the situation. I will refer them with the most trust for results!”
Dear Tanya, Ann Marie & Company:
“Sorry for the lateness of this form and with many thanks! we hope to deal with you and your office on better cases!!”
“I was very happy with everything you did for me.”
“Despite the events that have happened in past weeks and few years, I feel blessed, at peace and extremely grateful. A very large part of that is because of you. Even though we have never met face-to-face I truly believe that God lead me to you and your firm. I don’t know your beliefs or if you are a “Believer” so I hope this does not offend you because it is not my intention. I write this because I did not know anything about you or your firm; I did not find you through recommendations from friends or acquaintances; I was not even in New Jersey when I found your firm and services; I cannot even tell you what your old office looks like never mind what your new one looks like. I found your firm while crying my eyes out in Texas searching lawyers.com. I never heard of this web site and I never needed a lawyer before. From the thousands of firms that are listed on that site for your area your firm literally was and is the first and only firm I called. After speaking with Ms. Helfand there was no need to look any further (pardon the cliché).
I guess what I’m trying to say is Thank You. I cannot express to you enough how forever grateful I am to you. You put my mind at ease with everything and always gave me the reassurance I needed. I don’t know if you hear this a lot, but please know that you are a fantastic attorney. Never lose sight of that. As I have always said throughout our correspondence over the years; you are greatly appreciated and I thank you for all you have done and continue to do.”
Sincerely – R.N.
