Allison Holzman Profile

Excellent Attorney

Allison did an excellent job representing me through a very contested divorce. She was very well versed in the laws of NJ as well as the procedures necessary for the complete dissolution of a marriage. Allison would advise me if she felt something was not in my best interest to debate but would also make me stand my ground when necessary. She was present and available whenever I needed her with a quick response time. I highly recommend Allison for divorce and custody matters.
