Client Reviews
"Dan's expert handling of my divorce case was beyond my expectations. He takes control, documents your facts and summarizes options for you throughout the process. You will always get a timely response by email or phone. He will not forget the facts in your case or be uprepared for milestones along the way. He will advise on important matters but act per your direction. Finally, he will maintain a positive and professional communication with all parties involved." Jacquelyn
"Lisa has been my lawyer for the past 4 years for various court precedings and has been awesome. She always knew what was going on with my case and always took the time to ask what I wanted the end result to be. She’s tough and not scared to speak her mind in a courtroom in order to fight for her client. Lisa also always worked with me financially in order to work around what I could afford. I would 10/10 recommend her to anyone and would hire her again if needed." Cali
"Ms. Defino did an absolutely amazing job working with me on my case. She was very, very prepared, was excellent in responding to calls, emails and messages, understood the law and worked with with partners of her firm if there were areas that we needed advice and other opinions on. Jessica was a very comfortable to work with, super personal and got all of my needs and wants out of my divorce case. I would highly recommend working with Ms. Defino." Matt
