I contacted Zalkind Duncan & Bernstein Law in April 2018 to get help for my son on an education-related matter. We worked primarily with Zoraida Fernandez, an Associate, and when needed met with Ruth O'Meara-Costello, a Partner. Zoraida was excellent. The whole process was emotionally exhausting and depressing and Zoraida was the only bright light in all of it. She was realistic with us from the very beginning, could not promise anything, but the outcome was better than we even hoped. She was professional, diligent, strategic, compassionate, prompt. She always responded to emails within a few hours. But she was also brief and to the point- I always thought to be considerate and minimize legal costs. I can't imagine going through the process without having she and Ruth to represent my son. Unfortunately it was a long process (because of the school not the firm) with final resolution in February 2019. I believe the outcome would have been much different without excellent representation. I am so grateful to Zoraida and highly recommend her personally as well as her firm.

A friend highly recommended that I speak to the lawyers at Zalkind Duncan & Bernstein for my employment case. I worked with Emma Quinn-Judge and Monica Shah. And from my first contact on the phone, on to my first meeting in their office and during the trial, I found them and the firm's entire team to be a group of consummate legal professionals who are very knowledgeable, patient, dedicated, fair, honest and caring. Their preparation with me for my trial was second to none. I believe their organization, detailed knowledge of the case and outstanding professionalism contributed to the victory we had in court.
I would not hesitate to use this law firm again or recommend them to anyone.

I am forever grateful to all the staff at this firm, but in particular, Ms. Shah, Mr. Zalkind and Mr. Silverglate. They represented my son who was being sought for extradition to Scotland. The case took years to fight, covering new legal ground, setting precedence. But each one of these legal eagles went above and beyond the duty of office: they provided our family emotional support, helped us navigate prison bureaucracy (at one point, I believe their intervention saved my son's life) and even coordinated legal initiatives with attorneys abroad. I highly recommend this firm, and I am glad to as I consider them my friends.
