Selecting Wayne Effron as my attorney was the best decision I could have made. Because I needed a "tough" lawyer to go up against the kind of divorce my ex-husband was looking for, there couldn't have been a better choice than him. Every time we entered the courtroom, Wayne was overly prepared and did a remarkable job in making sure I was as well. He's a wonderful advocate for women and a fierce leader in the movement towards freeing women from the clutches of controlling marriages. Wayne's knowledge of the law is impeccable as is his appearance and professionalism both in the office and courtroom. I always knew Wayne had my personal best interest in mind and he worked tirelessly with me until we both agreed we'd reached an acceptable outcome towards my divorce.

I was extremely satisfied not only with the final judgment, but also with the way Wayne and his associates and staff worked with me and managed my case at all times. Wayne provided clear and detailed answers and explanations to any and all questions and did an excellent job preparing me for all proceedings and testimony. Despite many years of practice, Wayne recognizes that each divorce and each client is unique and he was always respectful of and responsive to my particular concerns and objectives. I genuinely do not know anyone who works harder or is more committed to doing his absolute best for his clients than Wayne Effron.

Steven Cooperman

Mr. Effron represented me in a divorce proceeding. I felt that he handled this very difficult and unusual matter with great expertise. He is a very easy person to work with. Unlike most attorneys with whom I have interacted, Mr. Effron was very responsive to all my needs and was prompt, thorough, very clear and concise, and very quick to grasp all of my issues and situations (which were unusually complex). He gave me very well thought-out and wise recommendations and advice. His office and staff were very efficient, responsive, and also easy to work with. Every situation was handled in a timely manner; no delays, no excuses. Mr. Effron is a very ethical attorney. Opposing counsel did many things that were "questionable," yet Mr. Effron ALWAYS took the high road, which at the end of the day was the right road to take. Most importantly, Mr. Effron got a very good result for me. He was always well prepared for depositions and the trial, and was excellent in eliciting information from the other side, in and out of the court. He is intelligent, wise, practical, a good negotiator, and overall, in my opinion, an excellent attorney.

Wayne handled my divorce in 2001 and 2002. I was referred to Wayne by an attorney friend of mine. He told me that Wayne could handle the friendly divorces as well as the nasty ones. My divorce was certainly nasty, and I was very pleased to have Wayne on my side. While I don't ever want to have to use his services again, I am extremely glad that I retained him.  Ease of Working Relations Wayne is very professional and focused on getting the job done. He is not there to hold your hand; he is there to get you out of an unhappy marriage. If you need to process, hire a therapist. Wayne is extremely focused on doing his job as efficiently and effectively as possible, and he will tell you what you need to do to keep the process on track.  Level of Experience Wayne has extensive experience and it shows. I truly believe he is one of the best.  Timeliness in Responding I found that Wayne or his staff would respond to any of my inquiries promptly. I did work closely with his assistant in pulling together financial information and his junior associate in preparing perspective pieces.  However, when it came to meeting with other attorneys, doing depositions, attending pretrial hearings, etc., Wayne was there and he was extremely prepared. Wayne is a workhorse. I don't think he takes many days off.  Effectiveness in working with others Wayne was somebody I could rely on at a time when I wasn't at my strongest. He did a great job managing my belligerent ex-husband and his parade of attorneys. He is very good at reading people, managing meetings, and negotiating.  Clarity of communications Wayne is a great writer. His letters are succinct and to the point, which is particularly appreciated when paying him by the hour. I will continue to recommend Wayne to anyone who asks for a referral.

Wayne Effron speaks with precision while his honesty is refreshing. Wayne's direct clarity splices through fluff while fearless honesty enables the client to focus on strategy rather than the pain one feels from divorce. He is an experienced pilot flying through rough weather. My advice to clients is to accept Wayne's navigating skills, let go, and turn the process over to his perfectionism. A client's ex-spouse might find Wayne agonizing.


Mr. Effron did a very thorough and amiable job on my divorce case. He was very thoughtful throughout the process and made himself available when needed. The actual Divorce Decree is considered, by my peers, to be very generous. His knowledge of all aspects was as clear to me, as it seemed to be to the Judge. The Judge granted the divorce after 10 minutes due to the level of competency, on Mr. Effron's behalf. I think the best compliment came from my ex-husband who said, "I think that you had the better lawyer!

Linda LaTrenta


I found Wayne to be extremely well prepared in every aspect of my case. His concern for myself, as well as my children, was very important and helpful to me. He was extremely diligent and thorough in his presentation to both myself and before the Court. I highly recommend Wayne Effron and his Firm.

Wayne's judgment and expertise in guiding me through my divorce was extremely helpful in bringing things to a very successful outcome during a very strenuous period of my life. He was a pleasure to work with, did not create an adversarial relationship with the other attorney, and was always clear and prompt concerning his communications and follow-ups.

Mr. Effron did an excellent job representing me in my divorce. He is thorough and methodical in the discovery process, but does not draw it out unnecessarily. He does not dwell on issues that are not contentious, but instead focuses on the problem areas and works to resolve those. He is a skilled negotiator, and does not easily settle for less than his client deserves. His reputation for excellence in trying cases before a judge encourages the opposing counsel to work towards settlement. As he said to me the first time I met him, "This is not about emotion. It's about negotiation.


Mr. Effron is an extremely thorough and detail-oriented attorney. He is also respectful. He and his staff are very professional, courteous, and private. The decisions and outcomes that are in the best interest of me and my family have been and continue to be the motivation behind his work.


Wayne Effron gave my case the utmost attention. While I realized that he had a very large workload, I never once felt that I was being neglected; in fact, he often made me feel as though I was his only and most important case. That is not an easy feat with a workload his size. His staff were congenial and a pleasure to work with. I felt that I had a true advocate in Wayne. He was determined to look after my best interests, often times far better than I was able to do myself. He put my children's welfare first and I always appreciated and respected him for that. He never compromises his integrity. He truly made me feel that he had a vested interest in the successful outcome of my case. It has been three years since my case concluded and I still do not hesitate to call him for advice. I have a great deal of personal and professional respect for Wayne Effron and would not hesitate for a second to recommend his services.

Mr. Effron represented me in two cases. The first was my divorce after a broken down marriage that had lasted 35 years. Needless to say I was very apprehensive about the outcome, but Mr. Effron handled the testimony that my wife gave with just the right measure of tact and skill. The second case was very involved, bringing my mother-in-law, an elderly lady in a nursing home, into the divorce case. There had been a large amount of money that my wife tried unsuccessfully to accuse me of taking. He showed the court there had been no loan or any involvement by me in any way.

Jennifer Balin

I have the highest level of respect for Mr. Effron and his staff and the manner in which he practices law. Mr. Effron is extremely professional, thoughtful and insightful, and clearly commands respect and admiration from his fellow counsel and members of the court. His office is well-run and his office support staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Messages are always passed along accurately and phone calls returned promptly. Divorce law is complicated. It involves emotional situations which can be unpredictable. Clients can often get upset and easily discouraged. Mr. Effron is skilled at handling these situations which commonly arise, and his empathetic nature is invaluable. I would highly recommend his services.

Mr. Effron is a very competent attorney who worked extremely hard for a resolution and terms for an amicably agreement. He is extremely professional and is an effective communicator.

It is with ease that I recommend Attorney Effron. From the first meeting, he and everyone in his office were professional, polite, and thorough. His attention to detail is evident, from his brief emails to the final 60-page legal document. His advice was invaluable. Without Attorney Effron, I would have made grave long-lasting mistakes. His knowledge of the law and his understanding of human nature, so important in a divorce proceeding, were unparalleled. His years of experience were clear throughout the divorce process, from the serving of papers, through the negotiation process, to the final day in court. I am forever grateful to Attorney Effron.
