    Lucy Agostini was our lawyer during the sale of our house. She is reliable, efficient, and honest. Lucy communicated with my husband and I very well and made herself very available whenever we had questions throughout the process. She made great recommendations and steered us correctly the entire time. We highly recommend Lucy Agostini and her team!

    Lucy Agostini is a very professional, skilled and compassionate attorney and I can not recommend her more highly! She was always on top of things and responded to any questions or concerns I had quickly. She handled my divorce, the sale of my house and the closing on my new home. I have recommended her to my friends and plan on using her anytime in the future when I need an attorney. Her staff is also wonderful.

    A friend of mine recommended Ms. Agostini to me when I was looking for an attorney to handle my divorce. I had previously seen another attorney but didn’t feel comfortable with him at all. As soon as I met Ms. Agostini, however, I immediately felt that she was much more than just an attorney. She led me through the long and painful divorce process with patience, tact and kindness. Most importantly, of course, Ms. Agostini is an exceptionally skilled attorney. My divorce was complicated by the fact that I got married abroad, so she had to research the different legal aspects involved. She did it in a very thorough and complete manner, and that ended up being very helpful when my ex-husband's attorney came to court without having done much research at all. Ms. Agostini is also a very accomplished negotiator, and in her calm but determined way, she drives up her points one by one. She was able to get me a settlement which was more than I had expected when I first reached out to her. I highly and warmly recommend Ms. Agostini to anybody in needs of an attorney who is experienced, skilled, warm, caring and down to earth.

    Lucy Agostini is an excellent attorney. She is trustworthy, understanding and honest. She helped me many times when i felt lost since it took my ex 8 months to hire an attorney after i filed for divorce. She was empathetic to my situation which was super emotional at times. She is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything to me. I was very fortunate to have her as my attorney and i highly recommend her.

    I have used Lucy exclusively for the last 15 years. Her level of professionalism is unmatched in matrimonial law, mediation and real estate. I have been very happy with her services and legal counsel. She left no stone unturned in securing the best outcome for me, involving divorce proceedings and mediation. She has handled real estate closings for us as well, with the same outstanding results. I can't thank her enough for her patience and diligence in every situation.

    Hi Brad Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the work that was done on my behalf by your firm and especially by Rachel. Throughout the process, Rachel’s guidance and advice was always focused on the best interest of my children. At no time during this process did I have reason to doubt her abilities, effort or judgment. She worked with me in a consultative manor to ensure that my end-goals continued to be the focal point at every stage of the process. I found Damaris and staff to be highly professional and very accommodating as they helped me navigate through the details for the court filings and probation / child support setup, keeping me well informed. I was a little surprised at how long something seemingly straight-forward would take. However, this in no way was a reflection on your firm. I am confident that everything that could be done, was done by your team to get things done as quickly as possible without compromising my desired goals related to custody, child support and college contribution. For all of the above and more, I am truly grateful to you and your team. Kind Regards, Shaun

    Very personable approach toward the client. Explained all in details. A bit on a pricey side but you pay for experience. Worth every penny

    Unfortunately I had a terrible experience. I paid $250 for an hour long phone consultation which I ended after 20 minutes because he was so rude. He was extremely dismissive and his best advice for me in my custody case was to use google and watch his YouTube videos. The day prior he had sent me an email asking that I send over my court documents so he could know more about my case but he clearly read little to none of what I sent. He was so unprofessional and rescheduled my call with him three times in one day. He spoke to me as if he were giving me his time for free and he could’ve been doing something better. His wife was kind but definitely mislead me on how my conversation with him would go. If I had known how rude he was going to be I definitely wouldn’t have paid to speak with him or even wasted my time. 10/10 would NOT RECOMMEND this law group.

    I highly recommend the Micklin Law Group for your family law matters. Brad Micklin is very confident in the courtroom and is always well prepared! He is also very passionate for fighting for father’s rights! I especially recommend anyone that is going through a high conflict custody matter to give the Micklin Law Group a call! You won’t be disappointed!

    The Micklin Law Group are the type of people you hope you never have to use again, because they represented me during the most difficult time in my life; divorcing a narcissist with a newborn. Not only did they take my case when I was in California, they helped me keep my son and I safely on the West Coast. I'm tearing up just thinking about that dark time. They were truly the beacon of light in the storm, through the deepest lows to the ultimate highs of winning my case. I literally wouldn't be here without them, and would recommend Brad, Carmen, Rachel and the team to anyone who wants the best in the business who care about their clients. I will never be able to fully express my gratitude!

      I came to Snyder Sarno in need of a strong attorney. I could not have made a better decision, Angelo and his team worked wonders with my case. They were extremely responsive, they walked me through things and held my hand throughout the case. Communication was always extremely transparent and from the beginning they helped me to understand what to expect. I have nothing but good things to say. I would highly recommend this firm for any Divorce and Family matters.

      Michael Weil is unethical. He lies in behalf of his client. He manipulates judges inappropriately. Absolutely disgraceful.

      It's a great atmosphere and the staff is always kind. They really have "direct access" as their priority and it definitely shows.

      Paul da Costa is my version of a legal Dream team MVP, is a very positive feeling having a law firm that cares, listen and very professional. Thanks to Paul and his team i can secure a future for my kids.

      Very helpful and professional. Joe Maceri is great

      Worst place I ever been, they over charge you and don’t take your case seriously. I think when u look for a lawyer specially a family lawyer you spect they bear service and that what I was expecting of this mediocre firm. I though I will get the best service by looking at the videos they post and the morals and knowledge they seem to have when you go in their website. However they provide the worst service, they don’t care about anything but collecting money. Don’t waste your time going here if you looking for a lawyer that will do everything in their power to win your case , this people don’t care about nothing but money and they won’t even remember your name.

      I'm very disappointed with the level of professionalism of the Williams Law Group. I was impressed with the consultation and decided to use them to represent me in my divorce. In short, they caused me more frustration than the actual divorce. My ex-wife decided to go pro se and did a better job representing herself than the Williams Law Group provided representing me. The first day in court, the attorney was 1 1/2 late with no call. I called the office several times to notify the firm there was no attorney here to represent me. Then when in front of the judge, they forgot to submit the case information statement, which in the very first document you present to the courts after the initial filing. I can go on about arbitrary charges with document collections, filings, visits, document preparations, etc., which resulted in nothing tangible to hand over to me when I decided to go pro se after spending 10k and nothing to show for it. I'm happy with my pro se results, and it caused me fewer frustrations, and less expensive. There's so much more I can say, but I'm going to end it by saying I would not recommend the Williams Law Group. Save yourself the frustration and cost. I'm glad to see others had a pleasant experience.

      My experience with the Williams Law Group has been terrific. They are kind, experienced and handle all matters without much of a hassle. I highly recommend them!

      This law firm is amazing! They made me feel comfortable and at home from the second I walked in the door. They are polite, professional, and ask all the necessary questions.

      Professional, helpful and thorough in there work on our Wills, Living Wills and Power of Attorney.

      I highly recommend Melissa Zemsky. She was supportive, professional and took the extra time to explain everything to me. I felt confident with her walking into the courtroom and was very pleased with the outcome. She also cared about me and my children and would call me off hours and not bill me. She was reasonable with her billing. She fought for me. I have referred her to my friends and they feel similarly.

      I hired Melissa Zemsky to represent me in my divorce last year. She was the perfect person to have represent me during this hard and trying time. She knows the law like the back of her hand and represents herself and her firm in the most professional manner while also keeping a personal relationship, which at times was greatly needed. Melissa is a strong, direct, attentive attorney who has practiced law woman who has been a lawyer for over 20 years. She has always answered calls and texts at all times of the day and night for me and I have seen first hand how she does this for all her clients. Her team is just as supportive and helpful too. Divorce is a difficult and nasty process but having her and her team in your corner helps. I highly recommend her.

      I have a very stressful relationship with the father of my daughters. The divorce/custody process was not nearly as stressful as it should have been, because my "advocate" had a very laid back approach, so I was not well prepared to fight for the best interest of my daughters. Thereafter, I found a good advocate, extremely passionate and with a strong desire to win. None of those approaches were right for my case. Then, by the grace of God, I found Ruth Kim. She is compassionate, acertive and will reason with you. She will not push you to take extreme actions; she will facilitate productive conversations with the other parties, act quickly, find reasonable ways to resolve conflict and, importantly, be constantly available for you in case of questions. Needless to say that working with Ruth has been the most effective way of handling my co-parenting issues. After 5 years of discussions, motions and back and forth arguments, I feel like we are getting somewhere with the ongoing parenting relationship. Ruth has been instrumental for this! Do yourself a favor and reach out to her. You'll be glad you did.

      My experience with Melissa Zemsky was abysmal and had an extremely negative impact on my divorce negotiations. She told me initially how easy my case was. She spoke negatively of my husband's attorney. She told me how well known her firm is. She got into a high school level argument with my husband's attorney over absolutely nothing related to my case which only antagonized. She shared details of other cases with me to let me know how "lucky" I was. She was difficult to get time with. I was always unclear on where we were, what was happening, what should come next. She was condescending and dismissive when asked and made me feel like this would wrap up quickly. Well, 7 months later I am still unsettled and seeking new counsel. Melissa and the firm are highly disorganized and negligent. She received an MSA from my husband's attorney and lost it. She said "lost in a stack of papers." When it was uncovered, she did not immediately address it and apologize. She casually sent it to me in email while I was on the phone with her. When I saw the date and asked absolutely horrified, "Wait, you have had this for over a month?" She sort of apologized. In the gap of that month, she allowed me to waste time and money due to her error crafting a response to an earlier document that had since been revoked by my husband. She lost an MSA that was critically important to my case and its progression. She also claims to never have received a letter from my husband's attorney that was sent to her 2 days after we sent our response to his revoked offer. I have a copy of that letter now. I'm not sure in any way how it's possible she did not receive it. In fact it's not possible. She either lost that too, or saw it and didn't share with me to cover her first lost MSA. Melissa's negligence led to significant frustration on my husband's side and put me very much on the defense. She is unprofessional, irresponsible, and extremely difficult to work with. While seeking new counsel, I asked her to close out one detail by asking for an adjournment on a Feb 13 date. She said yes, and referred to a different event that already took place and even said "Yes, Jan 14." I responded and told her she was referring to a class I had already taken on Jan 14, and asked her if she knew what month it is. I'm honestly concerned for her. Clients beware.

      I was referred to Ziegler, Zemsky & Resnick, specifically Vikki Zieglar for my prenup. I was nervous about the process and did not want any part of this to get stressful or upsetting. Vikki and her Paralegal, Shelby Neurouter were excellent from start to finish! They made me feel welcome, they answered my million questions, did things in a timely manner, and handled everything as I wanted. Vikki worked with me on making me feel comfortable during a very uncomfortable process. It was quick and painless. They also helped me prepare a new Deed as well as several other things. Vikki and Shelby truly cared about me and it made the process so much easier! I would highly recommend Ziegler, Zemsky, & Resnick!

        I highly recommend Melissa Zemsky. She was supportive, professional and took the extra time to explain everything to me. I felt confident with her walking into the courtroom and was very pleased with the outcome. She also cared about me and my children and would call me off hours and not bill me. She was reasonable with her billing. She fought for me. I have referred her to my friends and they feel similarly.

        I hired Melissa Zemsky to represent me in my divorce last year. She was the perfect person to have represent me during this hard and trying time. She knows the law like the back of her hand and represents herself and her firm in the most professional manner while also keeping a personal relationship, which at times was greatly needed. Melissa is a strong, direct, attentive attorney who has practiced law woman who has been a lawyer for over 20 years. She has always answered calls and texts at all times of the day and night for me and I have seen first hand how she does this for all her clients. Her team is just as supportive and helpful too. Divorce is a difficult and nasty process but having her and her team in your corner helps. I highly recommend her.

        I have a very stressful relationship with the father of my daughters. The divorce/custody process was not nearly as stressful as it should have been, because my "advocate" had a very laid back approach, so I was not well prepared to fight for the best interest of my daughters. Thereafter, I found a good advocate, extremely passionate and with a strong desire to win. None of those approaches were right for my case. Then, by the grace of God, I found Ruth Kim. She is compassionate, acertive and will reason with you. She will not push you to take extreme actions; she will facilitate productive conversations with the other parties, act quickly, find reasonable ways to resolve conflict and, importantly, be constantly available for you in case of questions. Needless to say that working with Ruth has been the most effective way of handling my co-parenting issues. After 5 years of discussions, motions and back and forth arguments, I feel like we are getting somewhere with the ongoing parenting relationship. Ruth has been instrumental for this! Do yourself a favor and reach out to her. You'll be glad you did.

      Thank you Vito for getting my case to a successful resolution! I can recommend Vito to anyone looking for a divorce or other family law issue in the Hudson Country. With Vito's attention to details all the Ts would be crossed, all the Is would be dotted and things would go forward in a timely predictable manner.

      When I was looking for a lawyer for my extremely complicated divorce and meeting with tons of them to see who would be the best fit, Vito was the first one to give me actual advice during my free consultation. Repeatedly he said "even if I don't represent you, you should do a...b...and c.." This was my first sign that I would be in good hands. During my very lengthy divorce Vito has shown himself to be a true champion for my daughter and I. He has been honest, professional, and caring during one of the most traumatic times of my life. He has repeatedly helped me cut down on his legal costs and given me compassion during my darkest hours. As my divorce finalized he was honest and let me know this would not be the last of our time in court. He was not only right, but has continued to fight for me and my daughter as this has evolved into a custody dispute. I am forever grateful for his support and advice on our ongoing case, and at no point have I ever felt he wasn't fighting for us. He genuinely has our best interest in his heart, and I would, and have, recommended him to anyone who is having a difficult divorce that requires more than just a person to file motions. Thank you Mr. Brunetti, as I continue to work with you I'm amazed at your dedication and knowledge and my daughter and I are safer because of you.

      I highly recommend Vito. He's very professional and always on top of your case and accessible, which is exactly what you need when you are looking for a family attorney.

      Vito helped me through every step of a very tough time in my life. Vito is honest, accessible, knowledgeable, thorough and compassionate. He listens to his clients and will fight tenaciously on your behalf. I highly recommend Vito if you find yourself in need of a family attorney.

      The most honest and professional attorney I have encountered. I highly recommend his services for legal family matters. Thank you Mr.Brunetti for your services.
