    Francis

  • Robert and his firm were professional effective and did not take any “BS” from the opposite side.

    “I hired Robert Montefusco not one time but two times to represent me for custody of my child Each time I was represented with a favorable outcome. Robert and his firm were professional effective and did not take any “BS” from the opposite side. In a biased court system where the fathers are immediately the underdog , Robert was able to get me a better outcome than most fathers get. For that I highly recommend the Montefusco Law firm.”

  • THE LAW OFFICE OF ROBERT MONTEFUSCO IS ONE IN A MILLION

    “Robert and his staff have always went above and beyond for me throughout every step of my brutal divorce and custody process. My case is currently still open and we are in 3 court rooms. Robert is exceptionally educated, experienced, and understanding when it comes to matrimonial law. The past 2 years of my life have been the most darkest and at times unbearable because of the mistake I made in choosing the wrong partner. At times, I would call their office literally 3-4 times A DAY panicking, stressing, obsessing, and mostly crying. I never felt I was annoying them or a nuisance; they were ALWAYS there for me. Robert is not only my attorney, many times he acts as my therapist and calms me down and subsides my fears. Maureen was there beside me to sign the papers to file for the hardest decisions of my life and she always helped in making the process as smooth and seamless as possible. Hope is an amazing asset as well. She is always there to answer any questions I have and always was an extra pair of ears for me to vent to. In choosing this law firm you not only get an amazingly experienced attorney, you get a FIGHTER. Robert defends and protects me aggressively and passionately every single court appearance. For the first time in my life I have absolutely NO FEAR walking into the courtrooms ever anymore because HE is by my side. I am confident that I not only have an amazing group of people working on my case every day, but I have found friends for the rest of my life. The words Thank You will never be enough for what each of them have done for me during this difficult time in my life. You guys ROCK!”
