  • 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!”

  • I am grateful for all the hard work and efforts he and his assistant, Ms Maureen Furlan, and others,who worked closely as one with me throughout my case.

    “I had met my attorney, Mr. Robert Montefusco sometime back in 2006. He had represented me through a very rough and long lasting case in which opposition had gone through 3 different attorneys. I am grateful for all the hard work and efforts he and his assistant, Ms Maureen Furlan, and others,who worked closely as one with me throughout my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Montefusco to anyone who want excellent and qualified representation in their case.”

  • Attorney Montefusco is absolutely the best – – Period.

    “Attorney Montefusco is absolutely the best – – Period. His knowledge and will to provide the best services possible are second to none. Me being a single father, Robert has successfully fought for mine and my daughter’s best interests on many occasions. Most importantly to me, Robert has given his personal attention to every aspect of the cases we have worked on together and has never once made me feel like “just a client”. Although any dealings with the Courts are an uncomfortable process for me, I always feel an insurmountable sense of confidence when Robert is by my side. It’s truly a privilege to be represented by an attorney I feel is the best and I never worry when Robert’s by my side. I highly recommend Attorney Montefusco.”

  • Robert Montefusco fought for me & my beliefs.

    “Robert Montefusco fought for me & my beliefs. In a court that almost always sides with a mother–he was able to present my case and get me a very favorable parenting schedule. As a father (and not my first time as a parent), I wanted to take a very active role in raising my child. 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. I have my child 5 days 1 week and 3 days the opposite which is a great arrangement. Thank you”

  • 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.”

    Rob

  • Thanks from our hearts.

    “Thanks from our hearts. You were there when we felt our world was torn apart. You helped mend it. We’ll never forget you for that.”

    Matthew

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

    “Robert worked with me to help me reach a divorce settlement that was fair and honest. With Robert’s talent and experience, we never had to go to court. Besides settling my divorce, he was a good friend in guiding and helping me get through the rough times. His staff was excellent and they would always have some time to listen to me. I would definitely recommend Robert Montefusco. Thanks for all that you did for me.”

    Bob

  • Robert, I want you to know you are a blessing! AND THANK YOU!!!

    “I just wanted you to know that Maureen is amazing and helped me in a time of panic… I do not believe in coincidences and I believe she was an angel that day sent to help me. You are so knowledgeable and took so much time with me… for that I am so thankful!!!! Sitting with you helped me gather my thoughts and helped me see things clearer, and I felt even more courage to fight this fight toward freedom… a freedom indescribable. So Robert, I want you to know you are a blessing! AND THANK YOU!!!”

  • It all came true and I was very happy and relieved when it was all over.

    “Mr. Montefusco sat down with me for an initial consultation and told me what he would do for me. It all came true and I was very happy and relieved when it was all over. My case was a divorce of a marriage of just over two years. I made the mistake and he took care of the rest. He works very hard and it was many times on a weekend that I passed his office and the lights were on. I met him once on a Sunday afternoon to go over my case. I’ve already recommended him twice to people I know.”

  • Robert is definitely the one you want representing you through a difficult time that is going to affect the rest of your life

    “Robert was my attorney representing me through my divorce and I couldn’t have asked for any better. The attorney you choose greatly affects the outcome of your divorce and mine would have been horrible if it wasn’t for him. I strongly and highly recommend him. He guided me through with his expert negotiating, leadership, advice and representation. He was realistic of what the outcome was going to be and he was right. His office staff is wonderful and you always get timely responses. Robert is definitely the one you want representing you through a difficult time that is going to affect the rest of your life”

  • He is open, honest and will not provide false promises.

    “Robert proved to be a very knowledgeable, professional and meticulous attorney while handling my divorce. He made sure the custody agreement I sought after was received and his guidance through a tough time in life was unparalleled. He is open, honest and will not provide false promises. I am very grateful I had him there to handle my case. In the end I felt my agreement was very fair and better than I expected. I would not have received that result without Robert working with me. His office staff was also an absolute pleasure to work with. They were exceptional in making sure conversations and milestones were communicated to me as well as very thorough in the handling of paperwork, agreement and the decree. I would strongly recommend Mr. Montefusco for your legal needs.”

  • 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!”

  • Thank you for helping to give me peace of mind.

    “When you told me not to worry you would fight for me I REALLY felt that in your words. It was very comforting to me. You probably don’t even realize the impact & relief those words had on me… Thank you for helping to give me peace of mind,”

  • What was most impressive, was his caring, both for the child and us, the grandparents.

    “As grandparents of a small child, 4 at the time, we were quite dismayed to learn about addiction issues with both parents. In our initial consultation, Robert discussed in detail the complexities of securing custody from the natural parents. He explained what was necessary, and made no promises about success. He possesses a full understanding of how the system works and what can and cannot be accomplished. As we proceeded ahead, an additional incident occurred which opened the door to custody. He immediately took action and appeared with us in court. He convinced the boy’s parents’ attorneys to give up custody to us. The court awarded us custody and the child never entered the foster care system. What was most impressive, was his caring, both for the child and us, the grandparents. Today, the child is much happier, and both parents are on the way to recovery. He also appeared a second time to secure support payments from the boy’s father. We will always be very grateful.”

  • Mr. Montefusco has the right amount of pitbull in him and uses it when the opportunity requires.

    “Mr. Montefusco and his assistant were and continue to be excellent. They have the ability to take the complexities of divorce and all of the legal jargon and make it all manageable. They are wonderfully patient during difficult times and have always guided me in a helpful manner. Mr Montefusco has the right amount of pitbull in him and uses it when the opportunity requires. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done during the agreement and trial process.”

    David

  • His office personnel was unbelievable.

    “Robert was very professional. He was there for me when I was unsure. He was there for me as my lawyer and as a friend. He explains everything in detail. His office personnel was unbelievable. They were very aware of my case in the courtroom and out of the courtroom on what had to be done. I would and do recommend Robert to all my friends and family.”

  • 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.

    “I never thought that I would ever need a Matrimonial Attorney. I had what was thought to be a great marriage. A loving wife, 2 great kids, a fantastic job. A good life! The story I am about to tell you speaks of Robert Montefusco’s professionalism, his character , his compassion and the empathy he displayed to me during the most tumultuous time of my life. After 27 years of marriage my wife went through a change of life and decided she no longer wanted to be married. She created a divide with my sons and during the same time I was diagnosed with a life threating illness. All this while holding an executive level position in a very complex and stressful industry. The pressure of all of this was more than I could handle. No matter how hard I tried to resolve any issues with the marriage things just kept getting worse. I couldn’t go on like this any further. A very close friend who was an attorney highly recommended that I speak with Robert. At the first consultation with Robert and his assistant Maureen their only concern was my health. His empathetic concern for my wellbeing really showed how human he was. It wasn’t until two months after I was released from the hospital that I elected to engage Robert to represent me and file for divorce. 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! My former wife went through three attorneys running up and enormous bill on her side seeking the most unreasonable and outlandish request you could think of. Robert’s words to me was “always wear the white hat”. Maintain your integrity and credibility at all times. This goes to his character and sense of fairness. Although he is compassionate and empathetic it cannot be confused for tenacity and resilience in the courtroom. 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. His reputation and his sense of fair sensible play are definitely known by his colleagues and the Judges he stands before. Roberts Assistant Maureen and his Associate Megan are an extension of himself unifying his practice. I wouldn’t want to see anyone have to endure what I did. Going through what I went through with another attorney I don’t believe would have had the same outcome. I highly recommend Robert and his team.”
