I don't normally write reviews but I am very thankful to Juliana and her staff. She helped me through a difficult time and her main concern was always getting me a good setlement and saving me money. Although the case started out as a divorce lawsuit by my ex, we were able to settle it without making any court appearances. I was very impressed by how dedicated Juliana was, she was willing to drop everything to work on my case when there was something important going on. She also met me at the office after 6 pm and on Saturday because I work long hours. I would highly recommend her as a divorce attorney and her staff was good too.

Julie LoBiondo was my divorce attorney, she really helped me a lot. i started out with my wife bringing false charges against me and having no visitation. Julie got me 50/50 custody and my child is much happier now. The divorce case went to trial and it went on for weeks. Julie is an excellent trial attorney, you can tell she just had so much more experience than the other attorney. She spent so much time with me prepping my trial and we worked together almost day and night. She and her husband Anthony were so kind to me. She event prepped for trial with me at her home office every night after the trial. We worked as a team and she was able to subpoena and find out all kinds of assets that my wife had hidden away and which I got 50% of. And she really cared about me and my child so I am very grateful to her and very grateful she agreed to take my case. If it were not for her I do not know where my child and i would be right now. Thank you, LoBiondo law offices.

Juliana represented me in a divorce action back when I was in graduate school. She did a great job at trial, and we spent a great deal of time prepping the case. Although I am a skilled professional, lawyering is not my profession and it was important to have someone with me who would listen and help me understand what was going on. Juliana exceeded my expectations, she was available to me at all times, even coming in on weekends to prep the trial. She did a great job and I ended up keeping my professional license as separate property. This allowed me to start out my new life in a great position. I have since happily remarried and have a wonderful family with my new wife. I am very thankful for Juliana and very happy I went to her. Unfortunately, I have known quite a few people who have needed her services and everyone who I have referred to her has thanked me. There is no one else like her out there, I honestly don't think any other attorney would have taken this much time for me. She also knew I was in graduate school and allowed me to go on a payment plan, which was very helpful at the time. On behalf of my current wife and myself, I heartily thank Juliana and her staff for everything they have done for me.

When I first met Juliana many years ago, what struck me is that she has photos of her family and her kids all over her office, and I liked that she cares so much about family and kids. I was really hoping to settle my case and Juliana tried hard to settle it but my ex just wouldn't budge. The judge tried to force me to accept a deal that would have tied up all my income for years. But Juliana helped me hire a great expert witness who really came through. In the end, I ended up getting 50/50 custody of my kids, who are now in college. I feel they are better off because I was able to be there for them 50 of the time. It's been many years but I am so thankful I hired Juliana and would highly recommend her. I have sent many people to her and I will continue to do so.

After hiring this lawyer, I felt confident that she would present my divorce case in Supreme Court professionally and fight for my rights, but she did nothing of the sort. There was even a time I went to discuss with her, before court matters, and she rudely told me to be quiet and that I don't listen. Til this day, that still bothers me because all I did was simply ask solid questions pertaining to my case matter. I find her to be very rude and unprofessional. Everything I wanted to fight for in court wasn't addressed by her. Instead she decided to work with my ex wife and get her off scott-free without paying a dime for her actions of offense and legal fees. I sat in court while Juliana brought my ex wife into a private room acting as if she was representing her on what to do. Meanwhile I was stuck with paying close to $4,000 in legal fees for a basic divorce. She has a poor attitude about her. I clearly can see she isn't the best lawyer for the job as she has a comment from another individual about her poor legal practice. She never got back to me before proceedings, never once called me, always said she was busy, and her paralegal was very rude as I payed my money on time. Her paralegal threatened me that if I didn't pay on time that I would be sued, what a joke. This coming from a law firm who I hired to help me fight in my matters and treated me disrespectfully, like a second-class citizen. This law firm is horrible and it ended up costing me more than a traditional law firm. Do yourself a favor and hire a lawyer less expensive and who will actually fight for your justice as they are hired to do.

I originally went to another lawyer who told me all I would get was 25% of my husband's salary. I was going to sign the papers then I met with Julie. The case took a long time but I ended up about 10 x what the first lawyer wanted me to sign off on. She got me maintenance plus child support. Also, the first attorney missed a lot of assets that Julie knew to ask about. There was a lot of money in my case and she got me everything I was entitled to. Bottom line, I am set for life. I would call her on her cell and she would call me back night or day. If I emailed her, she got right back to me. It has been several years but I am so glad I found Julie. To this day, if I need anything I call her and she takes care of it. She has been my lawyer, my adviser and my friend for many years and I would never go anywhere else.

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.

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.
