Robert simply collected and filed my papers. He consulted with the opposing counsel and did exactly as she advised him to do. He charged me almost $15K in fees and left me paying ten years of hefty alimony. My ex-wife has a doctorate degree and is more educated than me. She will be able to retire in her mid-fifties (age) on the settlement that she was able to legally extort from me.
Mr. Lazzaro saw an opportunity to take money from a person in a helpless situation and he used it to his full advantage. He ignored all of the facts that I gave him that would have helped my case. In addition, he did not warn me of the ways that ex-wives can shift financial obligations off of themselves onto their ex-husbands. In mediation/litigation, he made no mention of the fact that my ex- used marital funds to obtain her doctorate. The advice that he gave about taxes was incorrect. When my ex- violated the Pendete Lite Consent Order, Robert made no effort to challenge the violation. This compounded my legal obligation to pay for bills and expenses that my ex- has accrued over the course of the Pendete Lite Consent Order. My ex- to put the apartment she lived in in my name and refused to remove my name from the utilities bill of the marital home which I was not living in. I had to assume the financial responsibility for two residents above what I was paying in alimony and child support.
After Robert got done with me, I have more debts and legal obligations than I ever had and my ex-wife lives to the same level of comfort that she enjoyed when she was married to me. Divorce can be very financially rewarding if you hire a good lawyer that can manipulate the opposing counsel, as was in my case.
If you feel that you have too much money and you would like to give a large chuck of it to someone else, then I highly recommend Mr. Lazzaro. For the rest of us, I would stay far away from him. He was totally ineffective against my opposing counsel.
