Client Reviews

I dealt with Melissa Borja to help me keep my daughters mother, whom had full custody, from taking her out of state to move in with her new fiance. I first spoke with attorney Borja on Tuesday and told her my ex plans on taking my daughter on Friday. Attorney Borja acted quickly and the next day (Wednesday) she set up an Ex Parte, which prevented my ex to take my daughter with her to place my daughter did not want to go, and Thursday my daughter was back with me. And because my ex decided to keep her plans and leave, I was granted temporary full custody until the trial date.

I reached out to Golberg/Jones to assist with a revision to a spousal support order due to pending retirement. Attorney Melissa Borja did an outstanding job getting the agreement together, signed and finalized in record time. She kept me advised throughout and was a pleasure to work with. While the process may seem intimidating, Melissa was always cheerful, encouraging, and thoroughly professional. She is a great asset to the firm and would be a great advocate for any client.  Thanks, Melissa for all your help!

I came to Goldberg-Jones with a difficult, complicated issue with my ex-wife. I was assigned to Melissa Borja…and it worked out really well. She was responsive to my concerns, kept me updated on developments, worked professionally with my ex’s lawyer, and helped keep things out of court. The issue got resolved. Thanks, Melissa.
