Committed to Your Peace of Mind and Well Being - We Believe Mental Health Is Wealth

We believe we have an obligation to address all of the needs that arise from your family law concerns, especially the concerns we can’t see, like your mental balance and clarity. 

Licensed Social Worker on Staff - We’re in the Habit of Helping

We have a licensed master social worker on staff to help consult with our attorneys and provide referrals to clients, so that they can better cope with the full spectrum of their family concerns.

Licensed Mediators - Going to Court is Not Always the Answer

Sometimes alternative dispute resolution options are the answer, and if that’s the case, our licensed mediators are ready to help. Unlike many other firms, we encourage peaceful and civilized resolution of issues from the outset. Litigation is almost always a Plan B.

Modern Family Law Services - Because Every Family Is Different

Wisselman Harounian recognizes the unique needs of your family and is at the forefront of evolving legal issues including religious and cultural divorce, LGBTQIA+ couples, fertility and surrogacy matters.

A Commitment to Community - We Live Here Too

Wisselman Harounian supports organizations that stand against domestic and child violence. No other firm has donated as many pro bono hours to victims of domestic violence. Our Managing Partner, Jacqueline Harounian was recognized with the “Humanitarian of the Year Award” by UJA, a leading non profit organization, for her advocacy and service.

What our clients are saying

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate working with you. I have been hearing such horror stories from my clients about their lawyers…from being unresponsive to giving bad advice. I was so lucky to have found you!

- Former Client

Derrick Rubin advised my elderly Dad on his apt lease renewal. Time was of the essence and Mr. Rubin reviewed the lease immediately and met with us to over questions and concerns. He is extremely professional and meticulous, as well as patient and kind. Thank you!

- Former Client

Jackie Harounian is professional, very knowledgeable, responsive and above all, kind and understanding. Working with her during difficult situations became a pleasurable experience and I plan to work with her again in the future. I would suggest her and her firm to everyone.

- Former Client

Thank you very much for your help throughout my divorce. Your skill, patience, and calm disposition brought me reassurance during a very dark time. I appreciate everything you have done.
