Testimonials From Former Clients and From Lawyers in the Community

Posted by Diane, post-judgment/Divorce client:

Tobie Waxman is the perfect attorney, just the right mix of gentle advisor and pit bull! She had the "full attention" (trying to be polite) of the opposing council while handling the final settlement in my very unpleasant divorce from an LAFD member.... They are a tight knit group and it can be challenging to navigate their closed ranks (again, being polite) to say the least. Tobie negotiated a higher settlement for me than I ever thought possible! If you are going to divorce an LAFD member, don't be intimidated! Remember two things: Tobie Waxman & Gilmore Election.....


Posted by Kathy, a Divorce client:

Tobie handled my Divorce / Separation matter.  She was a wonderful understanding, personal, supportive and very professional Divorce lawyer. She is cooperative with the opposing/Defending Atty. but she can also be very stern, strong and demanding. She has done a wonderfully fair job representing me that both ex husband and I have been able to keep our friendship without remorse. I have referred several friends to Ms. Waxman and without a doubt she has helped them tremendously. I definitely recommend Ms. Tobie Waxman, Atty. without any hesitation. She is a blessing in disguise.


Posted by Serena, a Prenuptial Agreement client:

Tobie assisted me with a prenuptial agreement. She was very flexible, responsive and patient. She was also helpful in guiding and advising me in an area that I was totally unfamiliar with; explaining the information in a way that a non-lawyer like myself could understand.


Posted by Taison, a Prenuptial Agreement client:

Extremely comfortable to work with and highly professional to boot. The overall process was effortless on my part and allowed me peace of mind.


Posted by Rick, a Divorce client:

I found Tobie very straightforward, knowledgeable and direct. She takes the complexity out of the equation so any required action is easy to understand and resolve. I found her to be incredibly responsive and accurate to any requests for action. Additionally, her calm, patient and self-assured manner makes her a pleasure to work with. Tobie will have all of my future business.

I believe you will be quite impressed
