Professional, reliable, responsive attorney; strongly represented my interests; fair price.
I hired Andrea Vacca for a family matter - and am I glad I did. From the first call to meetings and follow-up emails/calls she patiently listened to my needs, provided helpful advice that I felt free to take or reject, and she made it very clear what interests were at stake each time. She always responded to my emails quickly and when she did, she was ready with the info or advice I asked without a need for further back-and-forth. She was kind yet strong when it came to representing my interests. As a lawyer myself - having worked with hundreds of lawyers - this combination of attributes is something I do not take for granted. I approached Andrea based on recommendations from several others who said she was the best -- so I was ready to pay the price. When the bill came, though, I was pleased with how efficiently she had used her time. She hadn't overcharged a minute and there were no surprises. I couldn't recommend Andrea highly enough.
Professional, compassionate and creative
This was one of the most difficult times of my life and I was afraid I would have a horrible experience like other friends. A co-worker thankfully recommended me to Andrea! Working with Andrea to handle my divorce collaboratively was the best decision. She understood what was important to me and what my needs were, educated me about the law and guided me through the entire process. Andrea was sensitive and responsive. She has such a nice way about her that she even managed to keep my overbearing ex in line. Though my divorce did take longer than I thought it would, I now understand it's a process and we ended up with a settlement that works for me. Andrea - I couldn't have done it without you!
Professional, Responsive, Excellent Trouble-shooter & Creative Attorney
I was referred to Andrea by a colleague of my mother's. I retained her after having to get rid of bad attorney. She was very professional, responded to all of my e-mails, returned my phone-calls, assisted me with resolutions and guided me through a dragged out divorce. Her recommendation of attending mediation via Family Kind [with Helene Bernstein, Esq. - another great mediator and attorney] helped move things along. My ex and I became amicable and ended on a bittersweet note with both parties ending off better than we started. Andrea listened, explained every process, answered all of my questions, and eased my anxiety. If you're looking for guidance, solutions, and answers this attorney is will provide that and much more.
Andrea, Rhett, and Eve are an amazing crew that practices family law with compassion, integrity, and professionalism.
They are thorough, responsive, and addressed all my questions and concerns as well as brought up issues I hadn't even considered in my case. They are also willing to go the extra mile for clients, I had some time constraints and wanted to move quickly and the team was very sensitive to meeting those deadlines.
I highly recommend the full team especially if you are looking for level-headed, considerate, fair, and professional guidance on your case.
Andrea and her entire team were able to create a safe and productive environment during a time when that was exactly what I needed, but last expected.
Now 3 years later, my ex-husband and I are able to communicate openly and honestly in regards to our son which was my main concern during the divorce process. I really couldn't have planned it any better.
Tells it like it is
Andrea was very helpful to me - gentle enough to help me navigate the difficulties I was experiencing, and firm enough to be clear with me about the choices that I needed to make. Divorce is not easy, but Andrea’s expertise, knowledge, wisdom, and guidance made it far less painful than it could have been. Highly recommend to anybody who needs an outstanding attorney.
Great Legal Expertise and Calming Manner
I can't imagine having anyone other than Andrea in my corner through what is a stressful process. She was incredibly professional and supportive and always made me feel more confident in the outcome. I highly, highly recommend her. An absolute pleasure to work with and overall wonderful person.

How We Help You Move Forward
We represent you as your attorney. Your spouse has his/her own attorney. Both of you agree not to litigate. As your attorney, our role is to help you get clear on what’s really important to you and be heard—possibly in a way you weren’t heard in your marriage. The goal of collaborative divorce is for both attorneys to move you and your spouse together instead of pulling you apart. A team of professionals (from divorce coaches to financial experts) assist in the process to sort out the emotional, legal and financial matters.
As a mediator we work as a neutral third-party, to help you both come to an understanding about the issues that need to be resolved in order to have a durable divorce agreement. As your mediator, we facilitate your discussions but do not give legal advice or make decisions for you. However, we may provide legal information that may help you to resolve your issues. During the process you may each consult with your own attorneys to help you better advocate for yourself during the mediation process and review the final agreement on your behalf.

With Pre-Divorce Guidance, we give you a divorce roadmap, lay out your best move forward, and show you how to minimize your risks when pursuing divorce. Ready to move forward?
Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements
Prenuptial agreements are signed prior to the marriage. Couples who are planning to marry often enter into prenuptial agreements that clarify the financial rights and obligations of each spouse in the event of a divorce. Couples can also use prenuptial agreements to determine what rights a spouse will have in the event of the other's death. The most common reasons that people seek to sign prenuptial agreements include protecting assets that they had prior to the marriage.
