Posted by Trudy, a Mediation client,
My spouse and I hired Mrs. LoBiondo together to mediate our case. We had already been to another mediator and were about to go to divorce court but decided to give mediation one more try with Mrs. LoBiondo. She was very caring, especially about our children. We settled the whole case in less than 3 sessions, and paid a fraction of what we would have paid for a divorce. She was very knowledgeable and spent lots of additional time with us, even meeting us on a weekend. I really feel a big burden has been lifted and we can all go on with our lives now. I am very glad that we found her.

She took ELEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS from my desperate son's grandparents. I was to marry their son however he passed away 9 months ago. I watched Juliana blow smoke up their rear end....go against protocol...trying to go AROUND Dept of Soc. Services as opposed to working with them. She went to the surrogate court and convince the judge to give guardianship to the grandparents....the order was VACATED when the judge heard there was an on going case with FAMILY COURT...
After speaking with the foster care worker we interact with weekly....he clearly stated that she DID NOT KNOW THE LAW and how to carry forth a proper legal protocol to bring the best and fair result to a complicated case. She did not know what she was doing. Instead of directing us to an attorney that could bring a strong case on our behalf....for the best interest of my son and their grandson....she took us on and WINGED IT!!!!
I am sad that my family now struggles financially and we have no voice. I am just disolusioned and having had worked for an attorney personally for a decade...she unfortionatally furthers the belief that lawyers are sharks. I am sorry, but we are shocked and angred to have been treated like foosl and as a bank roll for shoddy representation in a very difficult time. We grieve the loss of my son's father a Marine and only 31....his parents are left grieving and penniless.
What grandparent would not give their last dime to give the best life to their grandchild. I want my son with them while I heal mentally....and now we 9 months later are still waiting to get him with family. We have been working with Foster Care and good news....he will be with his grandparents hopefully before Christmas. Thank you for reading my review....I just don't want anyone else to suffer so deeply and feel so embarrassed as we all do. I do not know where to get help to file a complaint to right this wrong....I am working diligently to find this answer. We will be heard somehow. I know that money is gone, but no forgotten!! God Bless

We are in a case that is "on going", however, Mrs. Lobiondo has been wonderful. She has kept us informed and up-to-date. I admire her spunk and her knowledge of the law. She doesn't "sugar coat" any issue and is upfront about everything. We have put the destiny of our lives in her hands and we have faith and trust in her ability.

Horrible experience. Blatantly overbilled for thousands of dollars. Forced to switch lawyers after spending almost 20k to get nowhere. seemed to be working for my wife and not me.. No vested interest in her client. Found out after the fact she was not fightling for what I was entitled to under NYS Law.
