Stay Away At All Cost
I would avoid this firm at all cost! I hired Anderson and Boback in November 2019 after being served with a divorce petition which did NOT involve children My initial consultation was with Janice Boback who related that she was experienced in defending prenuptial agreements and thought that she would be able to have a degree of success with the one that I had sent to her. My financial future depended on the success of defending the agreement I had on file. She touted her experience in this area which was what convinced me to hire her. In January 2020, (after paying Boback approx. $8000.00) I received an email explaining how another (much less experienced) attorney was going to be assisting Boback on my case. That was the last correspondence I had with Janice Boback and I was essentially dumped to a junior lawyer who admittedly never defended a prenuptial agreement in a court of law. By the time I realized that Boback had sneakily removed herself completely from my case, I was already $12,000 into this firm. I had expressed by disgust in an email to the firm, but was informed that the only resolution would be to discuss this matter on a conference with 4 attorneys, not with Boback herself. In August 2020, after nothing proactive was done on my case, I made the decision to reach an agreement with the opposing party because I did not trust my lawyer’s ability to litigate my prenuptial agreement. We had a Zoom conference with the opposing attorney (whose practice primarily focused on wills and probate) where we were absolutely schooled by him. My attorney was unprepared and had zero arguments to counter the financial figures presented by opposing counsel. Ultimately, I created and presented an offer which was accepted by opposing counsel. This was done with absolutely no legal strategy or recommendation by my attorney. In short, this inferior legal representation cost me $23, 000.00 in legal fees from this firm. I would definitely NOT recommend this firm under any circumstances as your hard earned dollars would be spent much more wisely on quality legal representation. I also believe that hiring these big divorce firms is a scam and a money grab. Strongly consider hiring a good solo practitioner where there are not so many hands in the corporate cookie jar.

High quality service, professional and aggressive
I highly recommend Kimberly Anderson. She is knowledgeable, assertive, and experienced. What impressed me most about Kim is her dedication. I was able to reach her whenever there was a problem. She always responded immediately, proposed a solution, and put me at ease. The entire legal team at Anderson & Boback is superb.
