    The best!!

    We went to Neil to discuss our debt options, and ultimately retained him to do our bankruptcy. He truly was hands on. He always answered his phone when we had a question, and promptly returned emails. He was extremely considerate and efficient. He remained extremely positive, and that was so important to us. Prior to him, we went to another attorney for a consultation, and left feeling terrible. We were lectured, made to feel irresponsible, and thrown a stack of "papers" to fill out.

    We are so grateful to have found Aniello Cerreto, an excellent attorney and a really nice person!

    Facts Matter; Results Matter - rest is just talk and sweet nothings

    I hired Niel for a legal matter over four months ago. During the free one hour consultation:
    - he sugar coated the challenges in the legal matter
    - misrepresented the risks
    - underestimated his legal fees
    - overestimated his ability to resolve the matter

    I was pressed for time due to my work responsibilities - and I considered the reviews on this site as a measure to judge Mr. Cerreto to hire him.

    During the case proceeding
    - Mr. Cerrreto came underprepared to the hearing,
    - kept asking me same or similar questions about the facts of the matter,
    - his poor preparation resulted in him expressing a lot of words but little substance,
    - the other attorney was factual, well prepared, direct and convincing.

    In summary, facts matter, preparation matters and results matter - rest is just talk. He clearly was second best that day - and in the hind sight I realized that almost all his reviews had him rated 5 out of 5 in every category and with several years as an attorney he only had very few reviews. I blame myself for not giving myself more time in choosing my attorney before agreeing to his free initial consultation. I would advise that - we as clients should assess the value of our time and the downstream risk and put in context the overall value of "free" one hour consultation. In my case I paid many many times over in court fees, fines, and hiring a replacement attorney.

    My final two cents - in the mumbo jumbo of legal procedural steps, case law, case references, etc. the case matter requires disciplined smarts. If your attorney in under prepared - you see your attorney try last minute verbal theatrics while your opponent's attorney slam dunks your case with facts and well prepared arguments.

    Please trying to get recommendations about Mr. Cerreto from people you know - you would do yourself a world of good.

    Aniello David Cerreto’s response: “I have zero idea who this person is or what in the world they are talking about. There is no real identifying detail here at all. They obviously want to hurt me for whatever reason in a way I cannot substantively respond. Perhaps this is a disgruntled adversary filing an anonymous post so I cannot recognize what they are talking about? No adversary is named. Please Ignore this and please see my clients below. I have been honestly helping people for 22 years. If this person wants to contact me to discuss it that's fine but none of any of whats listed here happened.”

    An Excellent Lawyer!!!!

    I needed an a lawyer to handle a post divorce matter in a very quick time frame. I asked Aniello and he was quick to answer my questions and gave me frank and responsible answers to all my questions. He handled my sitaution very very well. He , in fact, went above and beyond what was expected. He represnted me with the utmost diligence and I felt very secure in what and how he was handling my case. I was very happy with the outcome, as he saved me not only financially but also saved me from possible arrest. i am very thankfull I had Aniello on my side.

    A very positive experience!

    Aniello handled my divorce in a very professional manner and with consideration for what I was going through. I received the right advice and was guided through the process every step of the way. I would recommend Aneillo and I am so glad that I chose him to handle my case. He had the experience to advise me correctly .

    High rate of failure

    Neil over promised his skills in divorce matter and my wife's attorney ran circles around him. He was under prepared and struggled to find credible points to defend our position. In the end he pressed me with (what I later learned) unfounded risks to my case to coach me to a poorly positioned compromise.

    As I looked for his replacement - more than two attorneys shook their head when they heard his involvement in the case. He apparently is a traffic court handler who is dabbling into divorce matters and wreaking havoc for his clients. It took me several months to stabilize the damage.

    Sincerely,
    A.S.

    Aniello David Cerreto’s response: “I say suspect because avvo does not allow attorneys to know who puts up anonymous posts. Attorneys agree to use the site as is. Also, this client never voiced any concerns or objections during the representation. I learned of it for the first time when reviewing my profile. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, this purported client (coincidently?) does not provide "any" detail that can be addressed with a detailed response. It's unfortunate after 22 years of hard work as a caring lawyer that one dishonest post can be allowed to stand in a public forum. Avvo's review process also is not inclusive of both sides in that there is no objective mutual participation fact finding process. Attorneys agree to use the site as is. I have zero knowledge of what this person said to avvo for avvo to decide to allow this untrue post to stand. I also do not appreciate that there is no process to prevent false accusations by vetting it "before" it is allowed to be posted. If avvo decides to post it, your stuck, even if you close your account, they keep it up on you. I did speak with my account representative David at avvo before this second comment. Their position was simply procure and post more client reviews. I agreed to use the site as is.”

    Honest and Tells it Like it is

    Mr. Cerreto was a breath of fresh air. He is concerned about his clients financial as well as emotional welfare. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is no nonsense, returns phone calls, email, and text messages promptly. He also takes time to explain the process, answer questions with simple explanations and is very professional.

    My prior attorney just wanted to create more of an adversarial relationship between the parties and get high billing. He is a nice down-to-earth guy who cares about his clients. He is a team player!

    Call him and see,

    saved my divorce

    Mr Cerreto came into my divorce, towards the end, after a very long fight on my own. a fight in which I was losing very badly. I didn't know what I was doing and I couldn't find an attorney thatthat would help me after being so far along into the divorce. Mr Cerreto took a landslide and slowly put it back in my favor. there is not a professional in any profession that I would recommend more highly!!!

    Mr. Cerreto a true peoples attorney

    Mr. Cerreto is a true peoples attorney who I highly recommend. He is very professional, understanding, personable, efficient and reasonable. NJ law and most attorney's may not get you what you want but Aniello will get you what you need! He goes the extra mile to educate you and assist you in getting a fair shake in NJ especially when you feel blind slided by your ex-spouse. Aniello responds to all questions, emails, phone calls and on weekends too. He is considerate of your feelings and makes the journey a happy one in a difficult situation. As a male on the opposite side of the spectrum where at times the stereo type is that the female gets everything, well, I was glad I found Aniello. He did everything by the law and I was very pleased with the outcome. He is a true peoples attorney a real champion in the arena of divorce court.

    Neil gets the job done

    Going thru divorce in New Jersey is not easy for both sides I had serveral NJ lawyers handling my case. I kept hoping the next one would be better than the last one.
    I met Neil, it took sometime due to the courts but shortly after he got the case under control and got a me a settlement that I could live with.
    If your having a legal problem give him a call after talking to him you'll see what I mean.
    He is super to work with and was very fair.
    You won't meet many like him....Thanks Neil again for all your help!
