    - Oct 02 2021 Joanne was a great resource for me. She gave me a lot of clear, important information very concisely. She met me where I was at and discussed my concerns. I highly recommend her.
  • Taryn

    - Aug 19 2021 I worked with Joanne on a prenuptial agreement. This was my first time dealing with a lawyer so I had no idea what to expect. Joanne was extremely professional, responsive, and easy to work with. She explained the process to me very thoroughly and I truly feel like she had my best interests at heart. If it weren't for the the opposing counsel's side, the process would have wrapped up within a few weeks due to the quick speed at which Joanne is able to work. I would definitely work with Joanne again on any legal matter related to marriage/divorce, although I certainly hope I won't have to :)

    - Jun 16 2018 Joanne Ratinoff offered excellent advice in a timely manner, on legal issues regarding a house down payment gift from us to our married daughter. We wanted to clearly document that the down payment money was our daughter's inheritance from us and would be her sole and separate property, should she divorce in the future. We had several back and forth exchanges with Joanne and had confidence that she was serving us professionally, promptly, and that her charges for so doing were most reasonable. We highly recommend Joanne.

  • David Slatus

    Nov 24 2020 I recently got married and needed representation for a prenuptial agreement (that the bride's side requested). Joanne was recommended through other attorneys and I am in so incredibly grateful that I chose to work with her. I feel (wholeheartedly) that Joanne was able to ensure that the agreement was fair and equitable to all parties and I do feel that my needs were addressed and considered. If I may describe Joanne best - she is an Attorney's attorney. She is so incredibly knowledgeable and adept in all facets of family law, as she took the time to cover the entire agreement with me in order to ensure that I understood everything that it entailed. Joanne spoke to me with respect and really educated me as to the prenuptial process, so as I felt that I was in agreement to the final draft. She understands how to best represent her clients and their need. She represented me with respect, dignity, and such a high level of professionalism. Joanne also works in such an incredibly time efficient manner that I never felt that things were 'dragging or up in the air'. It is with great pleasure to recommend Joanne and the Ratinoff Law Group if you are in need of representation. She will truly advocate for your needs.

    Aug 22 2018 Undergoing a divorce process, especially one that lasted longer than necessary, is an experience that I wish anyone will never have to endure. Joanne was recommended by a lawyer friend of mine, and I am so grateful for the reference, and to have worked with her recently. She combines complete knowledge of divorce law, sincere thoughtfulness, tenacity, and assertiveness that made this divorce process less painful than expected. Joanne was completely prepared to go to trial, but she diligently worked this process that allowed both parties to work out and settle this process without a trial. I would highly recommend anyone, with matters related to Family Law, that they turn to Joanne for counsel and representation. says:
