I am writing to express my utmost respect for Mario DeRossi and his team. He was clear, straight-forward, professional, and respectful in such a delicate situation. The process was efficient, which I appreciate. I am very grateful for all of the excellent work on my behalf!

Mario made me feel very comfortable when I went in for my consultation with no pressure at all. Once I decided to go through with my divorce he was extremely helpful and kept me informed the entire process. I also found his assistants and secretary very welcoming and helpful. I would highly recommend using Mario if you are looking for an attorney.

Mario DeRossi is an excellent divorce attorney!!! I would highly recommend his services. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and courteous! He was always quik to respond and seemed to always be on top of things. This is always a difficult situation and he always seemed to put my mind at ease. When I really needed things to be done, he got it done! Mr. DeRossi is simply great at what he does and I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends!

So in all my years I have NEVER in my life EVER felt compelled to write a review on anyone, or anything negative or positive.
This man has truly been a God send.
Going through a divorce is life changing, and when I had been put in the situation in 2010 I didn't know where to turn… Emotionally a wreck, my first attorney was a recommendation of a friend.
Not feeling comfortable I turned to a second attorney, also a recommendation of a friend.
Both experiences were awful. I finally decided to make my own choices and decisions based on my own research. I dedicated three months to researching the best attorneys everywhere. From manhattan to long island. I read every review on every attorney, and made appointment after appointment ready to start my search.
Mario DeRossi was the last attorney that I found while researching and the first among many appointments I had scheduled.
I went to see him, and as he intently listened to my story… I could tell you that for the very first time in three years I was told "the truth" … not what I necessarily wanted to hear as a person going through a divorce, but what I NEEDED to hear as a person going through a divorce.
Mario is knowledgable, confident, honorable, honest, a true man of character and integrity, respectful, kind, and aggressive all wrapped up in one.
Characters traits that one looks for in a human being and are hard to find… are virtually impossible to find in an attorney... you WILL find in this man.
As soon as I left his office after my consultation I knew he was the one that would see me through to the end of what was a grueling and ugly five year divorce. ( So long bc my ex husband had disappeared for so many years )
Although I knew Mario was the one attorney, I continued to go on my appointments. Attorney after attorney, after attorney, it was a nightmare… although at the same time a total consolation to me that Mario was the one.
So our journey began. He is not only an amazing attorney, but an amazing man, all in which carries over in to his work ethic and his practice. He saw me through to the very end.
Mario ALWAYS responded in a timely manner, and NEVER once left me questioning ANYTHING. He would repeat and explain things to me until He knew and was confident that I completely understood and was comfortable with what he was conveying to me. I promise you, traits you will NEVER find in another attorney.
Truly there are not enough favorable, beneficial, and gratifying words I can say about this man. He is truly a diamond in a sea of rocks.
I would also like to add what an incredible and amazing team and staff he has working for him. Georgetta, Danielle, and Regina are such an asset to his work. Good draws in good.
This review is my humble way of screaming out to those going through divorce the praises of such an incredible attorney and man!!!
Thank you Mario from the depths of my soul for ALL you have done for me in such a traumatic time of my life. Thank you for seeing me through this to the very end… In which is truly anew beginning.
I truly hope this review helps those discerning such a difficult and important decision at such a critical and curtail time in someones life. When it is so hard to be making choices being in such an emotionally vulnerable state… I can tell you with certitude look no further,

It might seem like an oxymoron, but this divorce attorney truly CARES about his clients. Mario did not mince words with me - he educated me about divorce law, he protected my best interests, and he kept me posted on the progress of my case while keeping my spirits in tact. He really went beyond the call of duty, hearing me out when he didn't "have to" and even feeling my pain countless times before he thankfully settled my case. Mario is a solid divorce attorney with a heart of gold-- a rarity in this very difficult and highly sensitive line of work.

Mario is a true professional. He is adept at representing his clients in a caring manner. He instills confidence with his ability to manage opposing counsel, Judges and courtroom politics. Mario was able to effectively and in a timely fashion settle my divorce proceeding. He was always fair and ethical but also aggressively represented me and my interests. I would not hesitate in reaching out to Mario for representation in the future and have recommended many friends and colleagues.

My experience with Mario and Georgeta has been amazing. They took their time explaining the entire divorce proceeding, my rights, my child's rights, documents, etc. They were so kind, respectful, and supportive through the entire process. I even joked and told Mario that I considered him part shrink too. I have huge amount of respect for both of them and their work ethic. They went above and beyond. Truthfully, I ended up gaining two friends. They are both blessings.

My ex-wife and I had shared joint custody for several years since our divorce but certain events dictated the necessity for me to get full custody to ensure my son's welfare. Not having such a positive experience with my divorce lawyer I went to court on my own to file for a new custody agreement and order of protection. The order of protection was denied and the custody agreement I filed was wrong. Fortunately a friend recommended I speak with Mario and it was the best thing I could have done.
Whereas I'd say my divorce lawyer was a sheep, Mario is a shark. I mean that as an utmost compliment in that what I went to Mario about - custody - is his area of expertise and he absolutely knows his stuff. Rather than let me initiate what surely would have been a long and contested battle for 'full custody' which is what I went into his office saying I wanted, Mario informed me about 'residential custody' and how it could help me achieve my goals but with likely less resistance from my ex.
Mario filed the correct paperwork for me and he was an absolute professional in the court, both regarding the proper paperwork and also in dealing with my ex to make the hearing go smoothly. But had it not gone smoothly and turned into a contentious legal battle I had the utmost confidence knowing I had Mario representing me.
Less than two months after hiring Mario to represent me I have received court ordered residential custody - and as a man that is no small feat! I'm very happy with the results and grateful to Mario. I would absolutely recommend him.

I sincerely do not think there could be a better attorney for hire. Where do you find an attorney today who has character, integrity and compassion, and is also at the top of his legal game? I had been a client of another attorney for 3+ years with virtually no communication and the feeling that I was simply another folder on her desk. A friend recommended a consult with Mario DeRossi. HIs warmth and knowledge were apparent from the start, and the truth of the matter is I learned more about my case and legal proceedings in general during that two hour consult with Mario than I had in the three years with my previous attorney! His experience, knowledge, honesty, guidance, keen attention to detail and warmth finally brought my divorce to a close in a matter of months, and I feel his representation provided me with a good settlement and the proper safeguards in place to provide the security I needed. I truly felt that I not only had a first class advocate but also a friend helping me navigate the legal issues I was confronted with. Mario DeRossi truly stands head and shoulders above the many attorneys available for hire today. If you are lucky enough to have had him recommended to you DO NOT hesitate to avail yourself of his representation. He is a gem.
