Attorney Client Reviews

Theresa A Lyons:

“The attorneys at Lyons and Associates epitomize professionalism. As a real estate appraiser, I have had occasion to work on marital cases they have been involved with (on both sides). When hired by them, I have had their full support, and I have also made note of the devotion and appreciation expressed by their clients while going through trying times. Even when I was hired by the other side, I never saw anything but the best from the Lyons attorneys. I, of course, hope never to need the services of a matrimonial attorney, but if I ever did, I wouldn’t consider retaining anyone other than Theresa Lyons.” – M.T.

“I have needed the assistance of Lyons and Associates and have had occasions to refer several people to them. I found everyone in the firm to be compassionate, skilled and thorough…from the receptionist to associates to the principal attorney. The folks I referred to Theresa Lyons said the same thing after working with the firm.  The entire team is very competent, capable and ethical.  Everyone knows that divorce can be stressful, but the Lyons staff treat people kindly.  If I run into anyone facing divorce or a family law issue, Lyons & Associates will be the firm I recommend.” – W.G.

“Terry Lyons was recommended to me by a friend – an example of Divine Intervention. Time spent in Family Court is not pleasant. You can hope for respect, truth and ethical behavior somewhere in the process but do not expect it. The notable exception was Lyons and Associates.

I had spectators in the courtroom ask me for her contact information.  – S.W.

Mark T. Gabriel:

“After almost two years of going through the divorce process it finally ended. I could not have done it without the Lyons & Associates team. My lawyer Mark Gabriel was there from start to finish through ups and downs of the process.  The best thing when things got emotional he would step in and calm me down not to make the wrong decision that would be life changing.  His knowledge and expertise in divorce law was amazing! Always courteous, professional and always available when needed, I couldn’t ask for anything more.

“I recently hired Lyons and Associates to assist me with several changes regarding my PSA. I was extremely lucky to have Mark Gabriel assigned to represent me. Mr. Gabriel was an extremely strong advocate during this process. He demonstrated to me an extremely honest, an outstanding work ethic, knowledge of the law, and did not “yes me” on all of my questions or thoughts. Mr. Gabriel in my opinion is the type of lawyer that will listen to your every concern/idea, and then will provide you with an honest (not sugar coated – polite) answer. This is the type of lawyer people should want to hire. In the end I have absolutely ZERO regrets with the way my case turned out. Mr. Gabriel got me a fair decision with regards to my new PSA. I would highly recommend Mr. Gabriel.” –R.B.

“Less than a year ago, I hired Lyons & Associates as the firm to assist me with my divorce proceedings.  I was very fortunate to have Mr. Mark T. Gabriel assigned to represent my case.  Mr. Gabriel’s work ethic and professional knowledge was remarkable.  He was compassionate and had a lot of patience when listening to my emotional opinions and wishes.  But while being a good listener, he was also very honest and straightforward with his messages when explaining what in his professional opinion was the best course of action and what was in the best interest for me and my family.  Throughout the process and probably through one of the toughest times in my life, he was a strong sounding board while helping me make some hard calls.  In my opinion, Mark T. Gabriel is a top notch family attorney in the state of New Jersey and the type of legal representation you want sitting next to you in the court room.  I highly recommend Mark T. Gabriel and his team at Lyons & Associates in Somerville, NJ.” –A.I.

They are an honest group.” – C.L.

Her assistant was skilled and prompt. I really felt that the Lyons & Associates team protected my interests, for example, my ex wanted 8 years of alimony on a 11 year marriage. This was reduced to 5 years. After my divorce was finalized, Lyons also reduced by outstanding legal bill by 30%. Would not hesitate to recommend Lyons to anyone.” – S.G.
