  • You don't need a guppy, you need a Barracuda!

    “I was recommended to The Montefusco law firm by a friend who is a lawyer. He told me "You don't need a guppy, you need a Barracuda"! From the first free consultation (many years ago) to the present day, the entire staff was courteous, punctual, professional, and tolerant. I say that because I can be a tough customer to deal with, and I was never treated that way. I was always given the respect, time, and the opportunity to be heard. Hope and Monica were great on the phones, and taking down my concerns, and relaying them to Robert, Meaghan, or Maureen. I had a particularly rough time with my EX, and I was fighting for the rights of my son, and him now living with me. Robert had my back through the whole process. I am 100% satisfied with the outcome, and the entire team should take a bow! Robert always knew just what to say, and how to calm me down in moments of disbelief in the ongoing battles, and I feel I can include him in my 'inner circle' of friends. Meaghan did a great job of re-writing all of my oppositions, and even took my calls when she was at her home. And last but not least is Maureen. Maureen is a paragon. She could answer every question I had, and always gave me the respect I deserved. She and I got to know each other pretty well on the phones, and through emails. Often times I called to talk to Robert, and Maureen picked up, and helped me through my concerns. Thank you Robert, Meaghan, Maureen, Hope, and Monica! You made a really bumpy road seem navigable, and throughout the process, there was always a shining light at the end of the tunnel!”

  • Robert Montefusco fought for me & my beliefs.

    “Robert was a realist-he was able to truthfully show the court that I was a very able, willing and capable of parenting my child more than the usual court arrangements.”

    Edward

  • Robert is not a stranger to arguing a motion. An added benefit that helped with my selection of Robert was his prior background as a Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney.

    “Although I am not an attorney, I deal with a lot of contact, intellectual capital and real-estate attorneys regularly and I’m a pretty good judge of character. Robert’s representation of me was outstanding!”

    Robert D.

  • With Robert’s talent and experience, we never had to go to court.

    “I would definitely recommend Robert Montefusco. Thanks for all that you did for me.”
