Ms. Engleberg's Personal Approach to Family Law

    "As a Family Law attorney, it's important to keep in mind that each matter involves real people.  I take the time to listen to each client and genuinely empathize with their feelings.  My extensive background in the area of matrimonial law has allowed me the opportunity to witness clients experiencing a vast array of emotions—anger, sadness, anxiousness, relief, fear, etc.  While my legal advice and advocacy may not change from case to case, my approach in providing this guidance is tailored to each client’s personal experiences, emotional state and individual needs."
