Exceeded my expectations and was comforting throughout the experience.

Mr. Fuscellaro came highly recommended and I couldn’t have asked for better representation. He was very knowledgeable in family law, diligent, professional; most importantly he showed real concern for the matter. He guided me through every step and went out if his way to make himself available. It takes a special person to treat a complete stranger the way Mr. Fuscellaro treated me and handled my case. I can’t say enough about him and his staff.

Fast efficient service, knowledgeable staff.

Excellent negotiation to avoid litigation. Helped me keep perspective and keep the end goal in mind. Great follow through. I felt like he had my best interests in mind. A pleasure to work with. Friendly efficient staff too.

Mr. Lombardo is a great attorney. Very professional and responsive. Always answered my calls and emails in a timely manner and represented me in two different occasions. Both times the case was dismissed. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a good and reliable attorney.

I have used Mr. Lombardo in settling my family case which was dragging one year longer than it should have been. I ended up firing my first attorney and retained Mr. Lombardo to take over the case. Attorneys do not like "taking over" the cases that were started and/or butchered by somebody else. It is messy and time consuming for the client and an attorney. However, I've explained my situation to him and Mr. Lombardo agreed to take on the challenge. My case was over in less than one year, after I've hired the Lombardo Law offices. I should have hired them initially and had the case finished 6 mo to a year, instead of 2 years that it took due to "initial" mess. I never had to question Mr. Lombardo' s integrity and his office was always accountable. I never had to "chase" anyone from this office. Whatever needed to be done, was done. If I had the question or a concern, I always received my answer in the timely manner. It may not have been the answer I wanted but, it was the truth and not "sugar coated". Over all, I highly recommend the Law Offices Of Joseph Lombardo. They will fight on your behalf and not just represent you, like some law firms do. - believe me, there is a big difference between the two - I tried both and wish Lombardo Law would have been my first choice. They are ambitious, accountable, honest, trustworthy and understanding.

Done an excellent job in not only fighting FOR me, but also PROTECTING my interests! Successfully bring my lovely daughter back from my wife and successfully helped me to get my daughter’s custody I highly recommend him for any family court needs you might have. ... He is absolutely fantastic and did a great job. I highly recommend him!. Staff also polite and professional.

I was referred to Mr. Newman by a colleague to help deal with a family issue, and I would recommend him to others as well. I appreciated him taking about 45 minutes prior to my becoming a client to answer my questions, and clearly explain the process required. He has a calm demeanor and discussed all aspects of the case, both positive and negative. He guided and advised, but always accepted and did what I asked of him. His staff was always courteous, respectful, and willing to help. He seemed to have familiarity with and respect of the court and his billing seemed fair. While I would not wish difficult family situations on anyone, Mr. Newman would make a good advocate for someone in need.

Outstanding experience so far. The staff is very professional and helpful with all my needs. Thanks Barry Jost.

I am very pleased with Mr. Newman, Sandy and Staff. What I had to endure was crazy. Mr. Newman and his team were knowledgeable of the laws, knew available options prior to every issue, very empathetic took my every call and was always professional. Every issue I had was addressed and settled. For the money he is worth it! I would highly recommend Mr. Newman to represent anyone with their case. He did a phenomenal job with mine (and it took 4 years.) Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone at the Law Offices of Daniel Newman.

Mr. Newman is the most dedicated and truly compassionate lawyer you could hope to have on your side. He and his incredible staff truly care about you and take the time to learn and remember all of the intricate details of your case. If you want someone who knows the laws and has your best interest at heart I highly recommend this law firm.

I would highly recommend Amy Smith as an EXCELLENT attorney. She's straight forward, fair and incredibly knowledgeable. #1 all around!

Michael Weinberg is the greatest divorce attorney I could have hoped for, bar none (pun intended!) After wasting a year and lots of money on a totally incompetent attorney, I was referred to Michael. From the first day until the last, Michael used all of his extensive knowledge, experience and legal acumen to ensure that I received the best settlement possible. Despite the fact that my ex resorted to every underhanded tactic imaginable to destroy me, Michael set an extremely high bar by example for me on how to conduct myself during the proceedings. I chose to take the higher road every time, thanks to Michael. He and his firm were a godsend to me. I have a life today beyond my wildest dreams, in large part thanks to Michael and his tireless, extraordinary skills and competence. He is not only a fantastic attorney, but one of the best people I have ever known. Anyone can consider themselves extremely fortunate to have Michel Weinberg represent them. I know I was, and am eternally grateful.

This firm is excellent. Jill and Amy are great and personable. They really helped me through a very difficult time in my life. They made the process seamless and easy. They always have your best interest in mind. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone. If you're looking for a firm that really cares about you and is willing to help you through a difficult time than these two are who you need to see. They will always make sure you understand everything and always answer your questions that you may have. Definitely look no further in hiring this firm to represent you. You will not regret it.

I was referred to the firm and was taken under Dawn Kaplan's and Allison Burkhardt's wings, for my tumultuous divorce,. My ex-wife wanted to relocate and take our kids away from me because she thought she had the right to. Dawn and Allison are brilliant strategist, taking their time to explain what is happening, and both are truly vested in your interest. This firm worked with me hand and hand always responded to calls and emails. They were on top of every move. I would recommend them to anyone.

Ms. Smith and her team at Weinberg, Kaplan & Smith provided exceptional quality service. The support and professionalism throughout this process kept me reassured. I always felt Ms. Smith and her team were invested in my case. They were always quick to respond, easily accessible and patient when explaining the details. Ms. Smith is smart, thorough, in short an excellent attorney in the area of family law.

After enduring through years of hell in an abusive marriage and finally being able to break away, a friend sought the legal guidance of this group. Unfortunately for her, this group dragged out the process and charged her for emails and phones calls repeating what was previously discussed and understood as if they never had the conversation to begin with. After thousands of dollars and unmet deadlines my friend disclosed to how the process with this group was almost as bad as her marriage. I will not recommend this group to a single person and will express my disdain for the way they operate to anyone who inquires about them. They should be ashamed of the way they handled my friend and her awful, heartbreaking experience before she came to them for help. And they should be even more so ashamed of how they took advantage of her through the painful process afterward. I would give zero stars

Excellent firm with professional staff. Best in the area to help you when you need it. Robyn is exceptional with the legal mind and personal touch to listen and create a plan to reach your goals.

After seeking legal advice from many lawyers for my family law matter, I came across Ron Graziano. Immediately I felt at ease with Ron and his team. Their compassionate and genuine desire to help me through a difficult time was evident. Quickly I was able to experience their professionalism, their vast knowledge of the legal system and their willingness to go above and beyond. I am blessed to have had a great attorney like Ron represent me. If you are in need of legal advice, I highly recommend connecting with Ron, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Ron and your amazing staff for always being there every step of the way. H.S.

Robyn Flynn was extremely knowledgeable, professional, efficient and compassionate throughout the process of divorce. Robyn’s advice, drafting of documents, representation in court, and follow up helped to maintain an amicable and quick process. I highly recommend Robyn Flynn.

I was referred to Ron through a friend and I couldn't have been happier with my experience working with him. I had a family court/custody issue that Ron helped me win. He was extremely knowledgeable with family/custody law and how to approach judges with the information I provided concerning my case. He was reasonably priced and worth every penny. I am finally the parent of primary residence for my daughter thanks to Ron's expertise. Thanks Ron...

She was very nice handle my divorce real well she is the real deal just let her work ill recommend her

She was rude on the phone and said she had a 4,000 retainers fee but she said it in a way like I couldnt afford it and she didnt even give us the free consultation. Very rude and I will never hire her . Not everyone is broke

Lois is a unique blend of the consummate professional as well as real & approachable. She kept my interests and the interests of our children in mind at all times. There is no substitute for experience at a time like this and Lois certainly has plenty of it. I was of course, quite concerned about the outcome of this process, since our children were at the heart of the situation. We wanted a smooth, fair process. Well, we got that and much more. The outcome was everything we had planned for. She is easy to reach and responded quickly at all times. I very highly recommend Lois Schwartz.

Lois is not only straight forward in explaining what you can truly expect to happen, she will also guide you and show you how to get the best possible outcome possible. Never once did she mislead us in our very long and tumultuous custody case Lois is not only respectable and honest, she cares about her clients and is extremely sympathetic to what they are going through. I highly recommend Lois to anyone in need of an excellent attorney.

Lois, represents my godson with a child visitation/custody issue. (I went with my godson for moral support. Unfortunately, he was blindsided by his ex's infidelity, after being together for 15 yrs. The two of them have one child 1st grade age. I had a similar issue with custody and visitation, in the mid 90's, when my ex wanted total control, like his does, regardless of how our children were to be affected.) We were both skeptical about him having a female attorney represent him. Pleasantly, we both learned quickly, how wrong we both were. Lois, is smart, tough and if you have a child involved, their best advocate is having her fighting for you and your child. Regardless of what nonsense has been dished out to my godson, from his ex, Lois, has been able to successfully handle and move forward with a good plan in response. Also, Lois has advised him with a good plan for a future matter. I like Lois's years of experience. She's able to review what you present to her and then explain the law, your rights and then formulates a good plan. We started off skeptical and gained respect for her. Additionally, we've come to genuinely like her as a person. Although Lois is straight to the point, she has no issue with reassuring you, without babying you. Due to her experience, she has really seen and dealt with it all and can provide her honest assessment of what you're dealing with. I like that she is a fighter who doesn't see gender. Regardless, if you're male or female, I truly believe she only cares about the child involved. If you're wrong, she'll tell you. However, she will explain why you're in error, through the eyes of the law. This is something you need in an emotional time, like separation, visitation/custody. You need to have knowledge where you stand so you can make good decisions for your child and yourself. Having Lois explain how the Court will review certain actions, you sit there and realize what she is saying makes total sense. Due to emotions running high because of these circumstances, its easy to lose focus. Lois, doesn't hold your hand, and believe me you don't want her to, she'll stand right next to you the whole way making sure, the best she can the nonsense stops. You want someone who is smart, experienced and able to apply the law and then be able to explain in layman's terms to you. Leaving you to be able to understand exactly what she means and how she would like to proceed. Lois, doesn't waste time either. When you contact her, she will return communications promptly. Additionally, the first time my godson and I met her, she was going to write a letter to send to his ex. The first draft was in his email by the time we arrived back to his home an hour later. Lois truly impressed the both of us after our first meeting. This woman is on point and I bet in court can spin circles around others with less experience. (Thankfully, my godson hasn't had to deal with a judge. However, we're both confident if he does have to appear before a judge, Lois is the only attorney he wants fighting for him and his child.) If you're trying to decide who to get to represent you with a Family Court issue, Lois, is who you want on your side, especially, if their is a child involved. Try and have your facts prepared, not just your emotions. If too emotional, wait until you're able to calm down and present your issues. Otherwise, will take longer for Lois to understand what issues you're really concerned with. Answer her questions, listen to her and let her formulate a plan with you, for whats best for your child and yourself. Lois, includes you with every step she takes. If you want to change something Lois has written in a draft communication, or add to the communication, she's more than accommodating, as to allow you to be understood and heard. If you do choose Lois as your attorney, you too will not be disappointed. With her experience and knowledge, Lois is a formidable opponent to your ex and whomever their attorney is.

    Lois is a unique blend of the consummate professional as well as real & approachable. She kept my interests and the interests of our children in mind at all times. There is no substitute for experience at a time like this and Lois certainly has plenty of it. I was of course, quite concerned about the outcome of this process, since our children were at the heart of the situation. We wanted a smooth, fair process. Well, we got that and much more. The outcome was everything we had planned for. She is easy to reach and responded quickly at all times. I very highly recommend Lois Schwartz.

    Lois is not only straight forward in explaining what you can truly expect to happen, she will also guide you and show you how to get the best possible outcome possible. Never once did she mislead us in our very long and tumultuous custody case Lois is not only respectable and honest, she cares about her clients and is extremely sympathetic to what they are going through. I highly recommend Lois to anyone in need of an excellent attorney.

    Lois, represents my godson with a child visitation/custody issue. (I went with my godson for moral support. Unfortunately, he was blindsided by his ex's infidelity, after being together for 15 yrs. The two of them have one child 1st grade age. I had a similar issue with custody and visitation, in the mid 90's, when my ex wanted total control, like his does, regardless of how our children were to be affected.) We were both skeptical about him having a female attorney represent him. Pleasantly, we both learned quickly, how wrong we both were. Lois, is smart, tough and if you have a child involved, their best advocate is having her fighting for you and your child. Regardless of what nonsense has been dished out to my godson, from his ex, Lois, has been able to successfully handle and move forward with a good plan in response. Also, Lois has advised him with a good plan for a future matter. I like Lois's years of experience. She's able to review what you present to her and then explain the law, your rights and then formulates a good plan. We started off skeptical and gained respect for her. Additionally, we've come to genuinely like her as a person. Although Lois is straight to the point, she has no issue with reassuring you, without babying you. Due to her experience, she has really seen and dealt with it all and can provide her honest assessment of what you're dealing with. I like that she is a fighter who doesn't see gender. Regardless, if you're male or female, I truly believe she only cares about the child involved. If you're wrong, she'll tell you. However, she will explain why you're in error, through the eyes of the law. This is something you need in an emotional time, like separation, visitation/custody. You need to have knowledge where you stand so you can make good decisions for your child and yourself. Having Lois explain how the Court will review certain actions, you sit there and realize what she is saying makes total sense. Due to emotions running high because of these circumstances, its easy to lose focus. Lois, doesn't hold your hand, and believe me you don't want her to, she'll stand right next to you the whole way making sure, the best she can the nonsense stops. You want someone who is smart, experienced and able to apply the law and then be able to explain in layman's terms to you. Leaving you to be able to understand exactly what she means and how she would like to proceed. Lois, doesn't waste time either. When you contact her, she will return communications promptly. Additionally, the first time my godson and I met her, she was going to write a letter to send to his ex. The first draft was in his email by the time we arrived back to his home an hour later. Lois truly impressed the both of us after our first meeting. This woman is on point and I bet in court can spin circles around others with less experience. (Thankfully, my godson hasn't had to deal with a judge. However, we're both confident if he does have to appear before a judge, Lois is the only attorney he wants fighting for him and his child.) If you're trying to decide who to get to represent you with a Family Court issue, Lois, is who you want on your side, especially, if their is a child involved. Try and have your facts prepared, not just your emotions. If too emotional, wait until you're able to calm down and present your issues. Otherwise, will take longer for Lois to understand what issues you're really concerned with. Answer her questions, listen to her and let her formulate a plan with you, for whats best for your child and yourself. Lois, includes you with every step she takes. If you want to change something Lois has written in a draft communication, or add to the communication, she's more than accommodating, as to allow you to be understood and heard.

Very good lawyer. Resolved my issue with no problem. Called me everytime I needed him too. He responds fast every time. Case handled same day I went to court. Very satisfied. Will hire him again if needed to.

Affordable, Very Professional, responds in a timely manner caring & attentive to your case. Reassured me & answered any questions with no problem. Overall great experience!

Mr. Garnes did an excellent job in my case. Very professional, punctual, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him.

David T Garner is not responsive at all. He’s working on a custody case to someone very close to me and it’s so hard getting him to respond or even update us on the case. He was so eager to take a hard working person’s money but will not deliver on his end. I would not recommend his services to anyone. Please find counsel elsewhere.

DO NOT hire Kourtney Borcher terrible counselor. There are so many complaints it would take up so much space to list. Over charges fees. DO NOT HIRE KOURTNEY BORCHER she is unprofessional.

I hope I never have to go through the pain of a divorce again. However, if I did, I would never select Weinberger law firm even if the retainer was free. My initial meeting with Kourtney I thought I made the right decision with selecting my attorney. She had crystals placed on her desk which I recently got into since separating from my husband. Once the legal process started, I began to experiment the lack of urgency and slowness to respond from Kourtney. I would make it very clear in my emails when I needed a response. I understood I was not Kourtney’s only client. Once my ex-husband responded to the divorce petition it was discovered his attorney and Kourtney worked together. The way these two women went back and forth with each other were unprofessional and quite embarrassing. I had to tell Kourtney to please not copy me on these emails as it is not good for my mental health. I had only been married for 3.5 years which the divorce took a little over a year. I was so happy to not only put an end to this divorce from my ex but to also be done with my attorney. The divorce hearing came up rather fast which I thought. Unbeknownst to me, Kourtney and her paralegal had been in discussions with potential dates with opposing counsel. However, they failed to let me know. I am so glad to have this chapter behind me and not have to deal with this law firm and my ex!

Natalie Wentz has helped me battle a Narcissist Ex since 2012 and I ONLY trust her. Natalie is a well known honest and respected attorney and always has her clients best interests. I believed in her and trusted her methods and in the end she was always right.

I called on 10/16/20 and made an appointment for a consultation for a family law matter. When I researched them I found them to be what I thought I was looking for. I was very wrong. I made the appointment for 10/22 @ 4pm. I received multiple reminder emails about the appointment. I left early from work on the day of the appointment so I could make sure I was home and could give them my full attention. I had notes and questions so I could be efficient with there time as I knew this was a free consultation. Needless to say 4pm came and went without a phone call or any type of communication whatsoever. I decided to call there office and see if the lawyer I was told would be calling was available. The receptionist was short and and not helpful. I told her why I was calling and she just said I will connect you with her voicemail. I left a message and still never received a call or any type of reason why I was completely ignored. I am now left with scrambling to try and schedule with another firm and try to get the help I need. I guess there to busy to keep there appointments or at least reschedule them. Very unprofessional.

Theresa was my attorney. During my process she wasnt just a lawyer she was a friend. She cared about my family "my boys" just as much as I did. When I felt down like I didn't have a chance she was reassuring, confident and empathetic. Hopefully I never have to go through this process again, but if I did I would never in a million years use a different attorney. She won my case and my heart.

I firmly believe in giving credit where credit is due. Chris Musulin and his team are top notch! Choosing a divorce attorney can be one most important decisions you make in your life. I'm very glad we chose Chris Musulin to represent our family member. All the way through the process I felt that we could totally put our trust in his hands and the outcome was better than I could have ever hoped or expected! Thank you. We are forever grateful!

I worked with Attorney Christina Fulton Groves on a very delicate case. From the moment I met her, I felt completely at ease and knew she would be the one to guide me entirely through a very difficult process. She was compassionate, professional, responsive and diligent. I am so thankful for the thorough communication every step of the way. Never did I doubt her abilities or knowledge of the matter. She was such a blessing to me and my family.

Chris and the entire team are nothing short of amazing. I cant express my level of gratitude in words for what this firm has done for me.. Chris and his amazing team helped a door open in my life that was closed for way to long. Honest, compassionate and integrous are only a few words that describe the Musulin law firm. Thank you Chris, Pam, Kelly and Christine for all of you hard work and diligence in my matter. May God continue to bless your firm and all of the folks you so graciously help!!!!

Mr. Musulin and his staff greatly helped me thru my divorce in 2019. Mr. Musulin is highly knowledgeable along with his staff, they answered all the questions I had throughout the whole process. They were always available and responded quickly to all my needs. I feel my divorce would have turned out much differently if I had not used Mr. Musulin and his great staff. They made a difficult time much easier. Thank you!

Very impressed from talking to the front desk.
