Jill Stone and her associates, especially Melissa, became like a part of our family. They are two of the most understanding, brilliant, sincere women I have ever met. Jill took on a big case for me at first because it was a jurisdiction issue. She went above and beyond and helped find me an attorney in Pennsylvania and then kept up with the other attorney until she won me jurisdiction in New York. Jill was honest with me and always kept me informed. She took the time in the rest of the year and half long custody battle to make sure what was best for my son happened. Jill and Melissa we’re confident and spoke amazing in front of the judge. She was thorough and guided me the whole way with patience and compassion as it was a hard time for my family and I. After Jill won us jurisdiction she made sure we settled on exactly what was best for my son and I for the present and the future. Never for a second did I doubt her and her abilities as my attorney.
Ms. Stone was hired as the attorney for the children for my divorce. She showed too much sympathy for my ex wife and didn’t even focus on the best interest of her clients
( the children). At times, I felt like my ex-wife had two attorney’s. My case dragged on for years and she allowed my ex (mommy) to use the children as pawns in the divorce. I finally was able to get a trial which was when Ms. Stone started to pay attention to how disturbing my ex’s behavior can be. Now I have a great relationship with my children because I fought until the court would listen. Ms. Stone could have saved her clients a lot of lost time from their father and emotional stress if she acted swifter and sooner. I cannot recommend Ms. Stone to represent the best interests of your children. It would appear Ms. Stone may be best suitable at representing mother’s.
I was recommended to Jill Stone and wound up being handed off to her lackey, Melissa Young. Neither did anything for me. She was constantly kidding around with my ex’s attorney and most of the time, I didn’t know whose side she was on. At first, she made it seem like I was in good hands because she was a working mother and both of the judges in our case (we had complaints in front of two separate judges) were both working mothers…(did I mention I was brought to court by my ex because I had to go back to work?) Anyway, I wound up settling on a lot of stuff out of court because I was not the least bit confident in her ability to win my case and I was deathly afraid of losing my children. Plus, it has been seven months since the papers were signed and I still have yet to see some of the money my ex owes me. Ms. Young keeps telling me there is a back-up in the court system…b.s. – I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone. All bark and no bite!
Jill Stone is an amazing lawyer. Not only did she win the case for me, but i recommended her to my two best friends also going through a divorce and she won there cases also along with custody of the children all matters. She also got my nephew out of jail, and comes from a family of lawyers that are respected in New York as well through out the country. I highly recommend her to anybody who needs a down to earth lawyer.
I hired Jill Stone to handle some personal matters. While in court, she handled my case with confidence, sensitivity and professionalism. I was so impressed. Mrs. Stone was respectful, knowledgable and compassionate. I would definitely recommend her.
Jill C. Stone is an EXCELLENT attorney! I retained her for my child custody and support cases. She is very knowledgeable, she kept in touch with me frequently, whether phone calls or email, and she always did what was fair. She definitely knows what she is doing. If you need a lawyer, and want success, CALL JILL!!
Ms. Stone handled my child custody case and she was extremely qualified. She provided excellent legal advise and worked diligently to bring my case to a successful conclusion. Thank you for your amazing professionalism and for always being there. She was impeccably honest, fair and trustworthy. Genuine and caring. She will work hard for you.
I hired Mrs Stone for my Matrimonial matter at a very trying time in my life. Her and her staff were there for me 24\7. I knew every aspect of my case and she kept me informed of each stage of the proceeding. she also gave me great insight into helping my children manage this big change in their lives. I read the other comments and I can not believe they were talking about Jill Stone because my experience was the total opposite.
I hired Jill Stone to handle my divorce and spent close to $10,000 and NOTHING was done. At times I was unsure whose side she was on. A divorce IS a very emotional event especially when kids are involved. If you are looking for a lawyer to have some compassion then keep looking.
I received bills that showed my retainer being depleted but no actual work was being done. There are SO many attorneys. My advice choose someone better able to do and GET the job done!!
Never returns phone calls. She has taken on so many clients then she can handle that she doesn’t care about the ones she has. I have called her office numerous and numerous times with no return. Has the worst attitude towards her clients and doesn’t look out for you or your best interest. I wouldn’t recommend this attorney to anyone. Don’t get played by her. There are plenty of lawyers out there that care and will go to bat for you. Not her do your research.
