Another Win for Attorney Traystman
My name is Tom McClusky, and I was represented by Attorney Gary Traystman in my recent divorce. I read some negative things about Gary prior to hiring him and noticed there were probably four or five negative things, along with a number of very positive things. But when I investigated further, I found out that Gary had been a divorce lawyer for 35 years and had done thousands upon thousands of divorce cases; so I figured, if four or five clients were unhappy during that period of time, there were many more clients that were happy with him. I also realized that every case is unique, and some people just complain for the sake of complaining.
I realized in the first half-hour that Gary was the type of attorney I wanted. I realized when he was interrupting me, that he was not bullying me, but was actually steering me in the right direction to save money and focus on what was important to my case. More importantly, my wife was demanding over half a million dollars in her settlement demands. I thought, at worst, I should make a minimum payment of less than $20,000.00 to her, so obviously, the case needed to go to trial.
Attorney Traystman did exactly what I had heard from other people. He’s professional, was ridiculously well-prepared, and attempted to limit the length of the trial and my final fee. But more importantly, he did a great job, to the point where my wife had to pay me $15,000.00 instead of me paying over half a million dollars that she wanted. I presume that’s what most people want in a divorce lawyer.

Father Gets Custody
When I explained my situation to Gary, I could tell right away that he was very experienced with these types of cases. He has been doing it for years, and it shows. By his expertise in the law and his detailed knowledge of the local system, he immediately made me feel completely sure that I made the right choice in who I elected to represent me and my children. He showed that he valued my time and my budget by getting things done efficiently. He even had me do some things myself to save me a lot of money. Gary is confident in knowing what needs to be done and executes accordingly. The only thing that remained to be seen were the results I would get. After all, that is what matters most.
In my case, Gary was able to provide me with the results I only hoped to obtain. He informed me that, first, he will get me my daughter, and after that, we will go back and get my son. That is exactly what happened, as rare as it is for a father to gain custody. He operated in a professional manner but got right to the point. Gary can easily expose the truth even if the other side is good at covering it up. I was most impressed with his ability to do that. We only had to go as far as depositions before the other side conceded. I can assure you that Gary is the man for the job and I continue to use him today.

Attorney Traystman Stands Up
I hired Attorney Traystman a number of years ago to represent me in a post-judgment modification of custody that had been filed by the father of my son. I recognize that my personality is somewhat timid, and I needed a very forceful attorney to represent me. I had been referred to Attorney Traystman and his partner, Attorney Susan Connolly, by a number of different people.
I met with Attorney Traystman and Attorney Connolly and realized that Attorney Traystman was a very aggressive, honest, and straightforward type of lawyer. He interrupted me a couple of times during the course of our first few meetings. I must say that it initially bothered me, but then I realized that he was actually doing what he told me he was going to do. He was trying to keep me focused and save me money by only discussing the issues that we needed to focus on to prevail in getting me sole custody of my son.
Over the next 18 months, Attorney Traystman filed various motions, made various strategic moves, kept me apprised of every element of my case, including regular meetings with me. He kept me apprised on my billing, discussed how the billing worked, and why I was getting billed for the various things he was doing. He only asked me for money when it was absolutely necessary. Ultimately, I obtained sole custody of my son.
Attorney Traystman was always deeply concerned about the best interests of my son, as well as my best interests. He did everything in his power to keep my expenses down while working hard to accomplish my goals, and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate his hard work in protecting myself and my son. I would recommend him to anybody that is involved in a divorce, custody case, or post-judgment family matter.

A Satisfied Father
Gary Traystman represented me over the last couple of years in a fully contested post-judgment modification of custody related to my two boys. I had been recommended to Attorney Traystman by a number of people. I found out that all of his family practice is by word-of-mouth referrals, and that his office was by far the busiest family law firm in the county. This led me to believe there must be a lot of people happy with Gary.
I was with Attorney Traystman for more than two years, and after working with him for many months, I found that he does not make false promises to appease his clients. He always had mine and my boys’ best interests in mind at all times. I appreciated the fact that when I began to get off topic, he would always interrupt me and get me back on track and focus on the important aspects of my case, so as not to waste my money and time. Attorney Traystman indicated to me at the beginning of my case that he felt he could get me custody of my boys, and he did. He indicated during the course of my case that he felt that he could get the court to order supervised visitation for my ex-wife, and he did.
At the beginning of my case, my ex-wife had the primary residence and had been the primary custodial caretaker of the boys for a number of years. Attorney Traystman and his partner Attorney Susan Connolly, who also worked on my file, were able to get custody away from her and transferred to me. Gary is an aggressive attorney, but fair and ridiculously honest, and his final fee was substantially less than my ex-wife’s attorney’s fees. I got custody, and she got supervised visitation. Isn’t that the kind of lawyer you want?
