After years of lawyers and no end I can not explain how easy quick and reliable Mr Van Boekel is! I had an immigration case that dragged on since 2013 and he took care of it in less than 6 months. He is easy to get in contact with at anytime and will answer all your questions immediately. If you need an immigration lawyer PLEASE call him he will make your process easy and stress free! PS. Elena in the front is also great, the smile on her face when you walk in the office makes you feel like home. Thank you again for all you did for me and my family!

Falo com conhecimento de causa, pois advoguei por mais de 15 anos no Brasil e quando vim morar nos Estados Unidos e precisei de servicos advocatícios, minha preocupação era o de encontrar um advogado que nao tratasse minha causa apenas como mais uma, mas sim, cuidasse do meu caso de forma diferenciada e foi isto que encontrei, por isto indico com toda certeza os servicos do Dr. Flavio Van Boekel. I speak knowingly, because I have been a lawyer for more than 15 years in Brazil and when I came to live in the United States and needed legal services, my concern was to find a lawyer who would not treat my case as just one more, but, take care of my case in a different way and this is what I found, so I indicate with certainty the services of Dr. Flavio Van Boekel.

Flávio is an excellent attorney who will work day and night and will cater to anything you need. In the time that i have known him, has has never not ONCE disappointed me. Any other lawyer is scared of flávio, due to the fact that he is PERSISTENT and HARDWORKING. There is not another lawyer that can match the skill and confidence that Flavio has.

Flavio Van Boekel handled my extremely complex divorce case that involved a lot of money and evil behavior of adversaries and demonstrated that he is highly professional, skillful, and knowledgeable. Mr. Van Boekel satisfied his duties with devotion and a strict sense of ethics and vocation to his matrimonial law practice. Based on his experience, he gave me the right advice at right time - some of them seemed so bold to me that I dared not to follow them, but later I found out that he was right in everything he told.

Flavio is the best lawyer in NJ and I definitely recommend his services to all my friends and family! He helped me in a very delicate case with immigration and he was very kind and helpful throughout the process. Always answering his emails and phone whenever I called to get updates on my case. The whole process went smoothly because he made sure there were no mistakes before sending the case to USCIS and I was just approved! He's an amazing professional, very punctual, honest and offers an outstanding service. Whoever hires his services will not be disappointed. Thank you, Flavio and Elena Van Boekel

Flavio Was my lawyer during a TRO(temporary restraining order) and he did everything he could to beat that case. 
The second case was a simple assault, against me through my ex-wife cousin, Flavio made a great affidavit defense presented to Court and was dismissed... 
Nobody goes wrong when you hire Flavio. 
Flavio is Great, Cause he likes what he does. When Flavio puts his feet on the Courtroom is like he is going to war with to defend you. The good thing at the end of all this, we became good friends. 
I do highly recommend Mr. Van Boekel.

First things first I'd like to thank My attorney for everything. Boekel did not only make my case an exception that good always wins over evil. He defended mine in a restraint made against me. Boekel is very understanding and very knowledgeable. You can tell how he outshines other lawyers in the courtroom and knows much more. I won my case and couldn't be more satisfied. I am very satisfied with the result and very happy I hired him. Thank you Flavio Van Boekel.

My family and I became Flavio Van Boekel's clients when my sister was going through a very difficult divorce and needed to find the best lawyer to represent her. When we were referred to Mr. Van Boekel the case was already open and not ruled on our favor. Mr. Van Boekel took on the case and with his expertise, he made possible the impossible. Since then, Flavio Van Boekel has been my family's lawyer. We already hired him for a family case, an immigration case and used his service for any legal advice. All cases were represented with great professionalism. I have referred Flavio to a friend and she also became a client. I highly recommend Flavio Van Boekel Law Firm to everyone looking to be represented by a great and honest lawyer that can be upfront with you on the many aspects needed to win a case.

Posted by Julie March 4, 2016

My experience working with Mr. Flavio Van Boekel has been excellent! He handled my case with complete professionalism, knowledge, and very strong ethics, and I was very thankful for being represented by him- and I also want to add that he was able to turn my case around with great outcome. Mr. Van Boekel has represented me in custody and other matters, and I was extremely pleased with his services. I had worked with three other lawyers in the past, and they were not even close to Mr. Van Boekel's level of expertise and ethics. I only wish that I had met Flavio sooner. I will continue to do business with him, and I always refer him to all my friends. In my opinion, Mr. Flavio Van Boekel is the best lawyer you will ever find. "Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges, but eventually you will find a lawyer you like..." Thank you, Flavio for being such a great lawyer!

Thank You once more!

Throughout my case there were moments where I didn’t know how to handle what was going on because of my emotional attachment to the case. My lawyer managed to keep me calm and informed throughout the almost 9-month process never once giving up on me even when I took my frustrations out on him. For every unexpected setback, Mr. Flavio Van Boekel had an array of knowledge to handle each in accordance with the laws for my custody case. I not only appreciate his expertise as a lawyer but his sensitivity when I needed it the most. Family custody cases are the most difficult to handle and I would recommend him to anyone both locally to those living in New Jersey as well as those out of town like myself in need of legal representation in New Jersey.

Mr. Van Boekel handled my boyfriend's case extremely well, and thus I highly recommend him for any services! I am very impressed with his expertise in immigration law in particular. My boyfriend had a tricky visa situation to sort through, which we were really nervous about since he did not want to be deported back to Brazil. Mr. Van Boekel always remained calm and confident throughout the process. I feel very confident in his knowledge base as well as his abilities in the courtroom. Definitely worth your time to schedule a consultation with Mr. Van Boekel!

Mr. Van Boekel helped me in a complex domestic violence matter where a former partner falsely accused me of a predicate act of violence. Mr. Van Boekel kept me informed, guided me, explained the law and obtained the results expected. Mr. Van Boekel is one of the best lawyers one can find.

Posted by Edlaine December 30, 2013
My litigious divorce.

Mr. Van Boekel is an extraordinary divorce lawyer. He represented me diligently and aggressively against my husband's expensive lawyer who falsely accused me of trying to "kidnap" my daughter (since I am agreed with card holder) and wanted sole custody of the child. In the end, Mr. Van Boekel made sure I had custody of my daughter and child support. Mr. Van Boekel also made sure that I had a fair division of assets from my husband and went the extra mile when my husband tried to harass me hacking my email and assisted me with criminal charges and wiretap laws. I highly recommend Mr. Van Boekel to any client to want a true divorce lawyer in action.

I am happy with the results of my family case , he was and is very professional at the time to filed paperwork to the court ,no mistakes were made ,which are very important before any motion, I had a bad experience with a couple of lawyers before I work with Flavio Van Boekel firm. And believe me, if paperwork isn't right, docks numbers are missing or misspelling the court will dine your case, and if no one knows about the error and you get in front of THE JUDGE he is going to kick you out of the courtroom like nothing. That is why I like FLAVIO VAN BOEKEL FIRM he won't let it happens to you. One more reason I have to recommend his service to anyone is, in THE COURTROOM he will represent you with knowledge of the law, leading the JUDGE to your favor,and that is what really counts at the end.

Posted by William Camacho December 20, 2013
Mr. Boekel professionalism and his staff were very knowledgeable and were "ATTENTION TO DETAILS" when it came to my court case, very friendly and helpful to all the questions I had regarding my legal situation. Compare to other lawyers Mr. Flavio Van Boekel was more concerned with my case & my legal issues, other lawyers are always more concerned about the money they can extract from you. As a disable veteran I was treated with the utmost respect and attention from him and his staff. I recommend Flavio Van Boekel to anyone who wants to be represented the proper way a client should be treated.

Flavio is a thorough, detail-oriented and knowledgeable lawyer. Those represented by him are in good hands
