Retained Penoso in October last year for child support, visitation, and seal expunge background. To keep it short, expect to do the leg work, stay attentive to your details, keep in contact with his office, and do your research to ask questions because they didn't really give me a lot of information that I didn't have to probe for. Half way through my cases, things turned ugly while I grew impatient, and missed a few appointments for work related issues. His former assistant, a wonderful Russian young woman, was such a great person, wish she was still there. She made things fun, smooth, very comfortable, gave plenty information and went beyond the call of duty to accommodate the clients . His newest assistant is not parallel to this affection at all, and others I've talked to who enjoyed past Penoso agreed. My ex's attorney did a lot, maybe 85% of the agreement work and my background was never sealed or expunged, just denied. Penoso claimed he did not know I had 2 arrests, though me, and my mother told him when he convinced us to do it for another $1500.00. " I would do it if I were you", were his exact words actually. He saw my arrest record and claimed he could open an old adjudication. I had to remind him of that at least 3 times, but he never did it.
I have the utmost respect for Mr. Penoso. He has always given me straight answers and has been a consistent fighter in the court room on my behalf with an acceptable result.
It is my personal conviction that some day he would make an outstanding representative for his district in the sunshine state.
