Anybody who has been through a divorce and is unfamiliar with the court system knows how much they depend on their lawyer. With no legal experience, I suddenly faced trumped up legal charges by my husband as well as a divorce. Attorney Jay Roncone has proven to be very reliable and responsive throughout my divorce and with related legal matters. He is patient and takes the time to ensure that I understand my rights and that I understand how the court system works. I really felt like Attorney Roncone dealt with each new issue as if I was a family member, someone who shows that he really cared about my situation and reaching the best possible outcome. I know that the outcome of my legal issues would not have been as successful with another lesser-experienced lawyer. Attorney Jay Roncone, who has more than twenty years experience, is the lawyer that I will return to if ever I am entangled again in such legal matters. I highly recommend him.

This lawyer and his firm are representing my daughter in a bitterly contested divorce. I have been really impressed with their professionalism, thoroughness and responsiveness. Jay particularly, helped take the emotion out of things and kept us focused on the end goal. I would and will recommend him to anyone.

Jay and team were a tremendous help during my divorce. I researched family law offices in my area and read the outstanding reviews and found them to be true. Jay was patient and responsive to my inquiries. He and his staff walked me through all the steps and provided me professional service. The team is extremely knowledgable about family law. I am very impressed and would recommend Jay and team to anyone needed his service.

Jay does a fantastic job preparing his clients, representing them, and wording documents in their favor. He knows the process and will advocate for you with enthusiasm.

My experience with J. Roncone was excellent! He quickly and easily helped resolve the issue I was dealing with and was a pleasure to work with.

Jay, and his staff, were a pleasure to deal with in what could have been an extremely difficult period. Always responded with hours to any question or request and I actually looked forward to our meetings, something I certainly did not expect when I hired a divorce lawyer. The case could not have gone more smoothly.

I have had a great experience with Jay Roncone. It was a very difficult time for me, still is, and Jay as well as his staff, has always been there to help with any questions or concerns I might have. I have recently recommended his practice to others. Divorce is never easy and in my case I had a 1 yr old in the mix ( he's 3 now). My ex is very difficult to deal with and Jay has always been patient with me anytime I've "freaked out" about something :)

Attorney Jay Rancone represented me when I had to take my ex-husband back to court on contempt charges. My previous lawyer failed to help me sort thru all the unresolved issues surrounding my divorce. Jay and his staff helped every step of the way. Offering not only legal support but moral support. Due to Jay's excellent representation, I was finally able to sucessfully win my case and move forward with my new life. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal council.

I needed a lawyer for a criminal defense case. I was referred to Jay by another one of his clients. During our initial consultation, Jay explained how the entire process worked, gathered all the necessary information, and instructed me on what needed to be done on my end. He was extremely professional, very easy to talk to, and most importantly, non-judgmental. This was the first time that I had been involved in something that required a lawyer and he made me feel at ease right away.
Prior to our court date Jay met with me and explained how everything was going to happen when we entered the courtroom. Knowing that I had never been in a situation like this, he wanted me to feel comfortable and knowledgeable about the events that may take place. We won the case and I know that I could not have done it without Jay by my side. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer!

In my line of work I deal with Lawyers quite often. Jay stands out as being extremely knowledgable. Just as important, he and his staff are exceptional when it comes to communication. That is why I chose him to represent me.

Very knowledgable, explained every step of my case, always returned phone calls, crossed the T's and dotted the i's. The best attorney I have ever had, wish I had him from the beginning.

I used Jay for a divorce and associated harassment order case in 2011. Jay and his office provided a high level of support and remained in constant contact with me through all stages of the year long proceedings.
The legal system can be confusing, yet it's decisions cause direct and mandatory changes to our lives. I found it very helpful that Jay would take the time to explain what to expect during the various court proceedings. He'd offer his analysis of the situation and relate it to me in simple terms. My options were clearly given to me, along with Attorney Roncone's recommendations. Rather than being swept along through the whole process blindly, I felt that Jay acted as a proxy by which I could navigate the legal system.
During a divorce there is substantial paperwork, and lots of facts and figures that must be calculated. I found Attorney Roncone and his staff to be very patient and willing to walk you through the whole process of information gathering.
Ultimately, I feel that if I did not have representation by Attorney Roncone I would have been taken advantage of and left with difficult post-marriage circumstances. Circumstances which I would be subject to permanently. I'd highly recommend taking a consultation with Jay and getting his perspective before hiring your next attorney.

I have hired J. Roncone twice for probate matters, another for something else. I found his law office online in 2009. He did an amazing job, put in lots of hours, research, knew his stuff. The last time I needed him was a last minute hearing, he was there, did a tremendous job, talked me thru it all and I walked out of the court room w/my head held high every time. He has never let me down, I would never call anyone else. I feel he is the best lawyer I could ever find, thankful and grateful for his services. He replied back to me same day via e-mail or phone call no matter the circumstances. I also feel very comfortable with the entire staff. They never once made me feel judged or less than. Everything completed in a timely manner, organized, and reliable. He would be my first call, no matter the circumstances.

I hired Jay Roncone in order to help resolve a very complicated title issue, after a number of attorneys walked away due to the complex nature of the case. Jay took on this case, and due to his commitment and expertise we resolved our case favorable. He was professional and patiant throughout our case, and we know that we would never have been able to find anyone else that could have done this case for us in such a manner. I could never thank Jay enough for the numerous hours he spent on this case. Jay is still working for us on other cases, and I know we will have a favorable outcome...... I would recommend Jay for any of your needs. He is very knowledgeable in a variaty of areas of law.

John was not working zealously on my behalf. This is the most important duty of an attorney. His methods were not those of a proper representative of my best interests.

I chose Jayâ€™s firm at random from the WEB as I live in California and was being sued for divorce in Massachusetts. Best thing my computer has done for me in the last few years
Iâ€™ve had the opportunity to be represented a few times in my life by legal counsel. I must say that most of the time I left that relationship with a feeling that I did not leave completely satisfied. This was not the case with Jay. I entered the process feeling that I was going to lose everything and expecting the worse. Honestly I feel I got the better end of the deal in the divorce. Jay is very detailed and doesnâ€™t give in to opposing counsel. He always looks out for your best interest in all aspects of the case.
If ever I find myself in need of legal advice or representation again in the State of Massachusetts Roncone Law Offices will be my go to firm.

Jay handled my divorce and he was very professional and diplomatic when the opposing lawyer and my ex were totally unresponsive to our requests. Jay knew how to get the opposing council to step up and provide what was needed to enable us to complete the proceedings. My ex even agreed Jay was an excellent attorney and very tenacious!

I was scared to death when I received the summons in the mail from my ex-boyfriend regarding custody/visitations of our 2 children. I had never experienced going to court before and I knew this was going to be war! I asked many people if they knew of any good lawyers...someone I could trust and would fight for me and my children. A co-worker of mine recommended Roncone Law Offices.
When I stopped by on my lunch break to get more information, Jay came right out of his office and asked me about my situation. He helped calm my fears and I left feeling that I was in good hands.
It was clear to me that Jay was very knowledgeable, and helped me understand the process that I would be going through. He always "kept me in the loop" and was quick to respond whenever I had any questions. It also became clear to me that Jay was not in this business to rip people off. He made me feel like I wasn't just a number, but that my case truly mattered.
Jay continued to coach me during the 1 1/2 year battle and maintained his professionalism throughout that time. When children are involved, no one "wins"...but I do feel that because of Jay, I was able to get all of my wishes on the judgement.
Jay is not only my lawyer, but he is now my friend.

My experience with Jay Roncone and his staff was exceptional. He is a phenomenal attorney for whom I have the utmost respect and admiration. He handled my case with a focus and determination for which my daughter and I will always be indebted and thankful.

I would absolutely recommend Jay Roncone for anyone who may need representation. He's an amazing lawyer who was able to provide me with the best possible outcome through my divorce proceedings. He's honest and straightforward and was able to help me in a very timely manner.

The stress of a divorce is never easy. Jay Roncone was well respected in the courts by the judges, and kept my nerves (which were out of control most of the time) in control! HIs attention to detail is unsurpassed and the level of confidence he has within the courtroom is outstanding!

I highly recommend Jay Roncone as well as the staff of John and Donna at the Roncone Law Office. I worked with Jay and his legal team on a personal injury case and found him to be exceptional. Jay worked tirelessly on my case and spent incredible amounts of time researching and gathering relevant data to support it, while always finding the time to keep me up to date on its progress. Only because of his personal commitment, perseverance and dedication, was my case settled favorably. He is a well trained and knowledgeable lawyer that I can recommend without any reservations.

Jay KNOWS the law and he understands that most of the people that seek his advice do not understand the laws. Jay was incredibly kind and sympathetic but firm with me. I was facing a whole new world of divorce and was scared and a bit hysterical. Jay was such a calming presence and he was fair and represented me in such a professional manner. There weren't any "surprise" charges or nitpicking with bills. My ex went a little crazy and was doing some pretty weird things. Jay took every hurdle that I threw at him with grace and never made me feel like I was the basket case that I know that I must have been at such a horrible time in my life. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need.
