Angela is not just an attorney. She helped me have the courage to get through the most difficult situation I have had to deal with up to this point in my life. She is kind, supportive, encouraging, & listened when I talked. I am grateful to have had her as my attorney. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Ms. Paternostro-Phister was NOT my attorney, but, in fact, my now ex-wife's lawyer. While we were adversaries, she was never anything less than professional, studied and level. She is very knowledgeable and understands the value of research. It's clear that she has a high sense of dedication not only to professional ethics, but also to the quality of her work. Her motion work is well-formed and in my case, tried to bring the sides together to a pragmatic solution.
Again, this recommendation comes from the other side of the aisle. I think that, as your attorney, Ms. Paternostro-Phister will provide you with a high level of expertise and as Mr. Gruber mentions in another favorable review, she is indeed a worthy adversary.
My divorce that Angela handled was full of ups and downs. From distribution of personsonal assests to custody of our children. She was professional but, also a friend. She listened to all of my concerns and made sure to explain every question I had regarding court matters. Her office staff is friendly and quick to anwser any questions I had as well as being efficient. I am so happy to have had her as a lawyer. I would highly recommend her to both family, friends and anyone in need of a great lawyer.
