Attorney Romero has been an incredible help to my family. My husband and I hired Ernesto for a family court case involving my stepdaughter. Ernesto has been thorough, professional, and timely in his work. After the court hearing, he called me to ask if I had any additional questions! Working with Attorney Romero has been easy because he is so accessible- I never have to leave voice-mails with a receptionist and don't have to worry if he remembers what case I am involved with. Attorney Romero has been proactive and has gone above and beyond what we expected from a lawyer. It is clear that Attorney Romero knows the law and can advocate for his clients to the fullest extent. Attorney Romero is an excellent lawyer and we are grateful that he accepted our case.

If the Theater of Divorce Court is the Wild West, Atty Romero is John Wayne. When my wife hired one of the most renowned lawyers in Milwaukee, my lawyer at the time questioned where my wife found her as “this lawyer is known to play dirty.” My lawyer at the time was in over his head, but I was already three months into this case and reluctant to switch to another lawyer. I searched AVVO and found Atty Romero, I said a small prayer, gave him a call and the rest is history. Atty Romero assessed a FLAT RATE FEE, and then wasted no time putting his heart and soul into providing nothing less than THE BEST REPRESENTATION MONEY CAN BUY, PERIOD. He had my wife’s lawyer’s head spinning in no time, and she’s rated 9.9 on AVVO. Atty Romero will give you an insightful, frank and experienced honest assessment of everything on the table. Atty Romero is available 99% of the time, and if you leave a message HE ALWAYS gets back to you in a timely manner – he prioritizes his client’s like nothing I’ve ever seen – AND HE DOESN’T CHARGE TO TALK. He is incredibly supportive, always listens to your concerns and is there to help you back up when you’re feeling down. Atty Romero provides SPECTACULAR service. This man’s representation is worth much more than every penny, nickel and dime that he charges.

From our very first meeting and continuing through the preliminary formalities/court filings and final disposition of my case, Atty. Romero proved that he was more than your average good attorney. What sets Romero apart is that he does not perceive his role as being limited by standard lawyer obligations to a client; he goes far and above duty to help you win. Especially in divorce proceedings, having an attorney who really wants to understand you pain and anguish, and is prepared to stand with you all the way, could spell the difference between winning and losing your case. In what could have have a disastrous outcome, Atty. Romero's encouragement, compassion, industry and -above all- spectacular legal skills made me a winner. He made me a very happy man, a completely satisfied client. I very strongly recommend him to anyone seeking a great lawyer. He is SIMPLY THE BEST.

I wish I could add an extra star for rating responsiveness-Ernesto responded to all of my questions promptly and (when emotions ran high) compassionately. My divorce started as pro se, but when my husband refused to honor our filed marital agreement, I consider myself lucky that I found Ernesto to represent me. He was always courteous when dealing with the other lawyer, but at the same time tenacious and a true crusader for my interests. I think the best summary of the experience is the fact my now ex-husband asked Ernesto for his business card as we walked out of court!

Atty. Romero's commitment and hard work make him one of the best family law attorneys I have ever met. He goes above and beyond his duties to make sure his clients receive the best legal representation. Atty. Romero received my divorce file from another attorney, and he wasted no time to get me divorced quickly and with outstanding results. He demonstrated unparalleled dedication and professionalism. Without a doubt, Atty. Romero is an expert in very difficult divorce cases. I highly recommend him.

In the game of legal chess, it is refreshing to be represented by a lawyer who has ethics and principles. This is the second time, I had the benefit of Attorney Romero's legal expertise. During my first divorce (March 2001), I had hired a pro se company to complete my divorce paperwork and when I attempted to file the paperwork at the Milwaukee County courthouse, I found out that the paperwork was incorrect. It was happenstance that I met Attorney Romero. At that time, I used his legal program to file my own pro se divorce which ran concurrently with a paternity action. He was invaluable then to assist me with the necessary paperwork to file my uncontested divorce.
Ten years later, I retained Attorney Romero to represent me in my divorce action (March 2011), including custody arrangements for my four children. Attorney Romero works harder than any ten lawyer firms. Attorney Romero charges flat fees which is unheard of in the legal profession. It is during that period in which I realized his invaluable net worth. In many cases, you get what you pay for or can afford and often that means the party with the most money wins. With Attorney Romero representing you get MORE than you can possibly imagine.
When I met with Attorney Romero, I told him I wanted what was fair and nothing more. I was a stay at home mom being pressured by my abusive husband to walk away from my marriage with next to nothing. At my initial consulation with Attorney Romero, he outlined the fair share of my marital estate. Attorney Romero worked with me and I was able to assist him in my legal action including writing my own martial settlement agreement and parenting plan. He was available to me almost 24/7 including consulting with me while he was out of the country on several occassions. He responded promptly to my questions and emails. Attorney Romero explained all aspects of my case, in easy to understand, laymans terms. He was patient with me as I asked "why" more times than I can count and then followed up my questions with more answers.
Attorney Romero is a legal warrior and will fight smarter for your best interests. He is irreplacable and his innovative brilliance continues to raise the bar for other lawyers! I am forever grateful to Attorney Romero for his work on my case.

I am in the military and have been going through a rough time with my divorce, until I was referred to Ernesto Romero. Let me tell you, for all the horror stories that I get about lawyers taking their time, overcharging, and not caring, this guy was none of those. I had almost missed a deadline for some legal paperwork by the time I gave Ernesto a call. Not only did he take care of submitting it for me, the SAME day, he got the ball rolling with a pretrial hearing. Long story short, after 2 months, everything is already resolved ahead of schedule, and it was all for a flat fee from start to finish. He was on the ball and kept in touch about everything happening, no extra charge. Every time I called him, he answered on the first ring. Not someone else, him! It's the little things like that which made this an extremely easy experience.

We have used Ernesto a few times in the past few years.. We couldnt be happier with the out come of our cases. Ernesto is a great attorney to have on your side he know the ins and out of the court house. He has the ability to look at a case and pull out the good and bad at first glance. Ernesto is a strait shooter and doesn't give you false hope. When your odds aren't looking good he will tell you and then does all he can to over come the odds. Ernesto is easy to talk to, it more like meeting up with an old friend then meeting with an attorney. While working on your case with you he speaks in a way that anyone one can understand. He save all the big legal mumbo jumbo for the intimidating the other side. One of the best thing I like about him is that he helps ease your mind by responding to email and or call promptly. I believe one year we even conferred with him on Thanksgiving day. Ernesto is very persistent. He really worked with us to make sure there weren't any loop hole in our stipulation. Everything is black and white there aren't any Grey areas. We are grateful to know that he is there for us in case we ever need his services again. We wouldn't ever consider looking for another attorney

If you want an attorney who is extremely professional and gets the job done: Ernesto Romero is your man. He handled my divorce case. He was always polite, gracious and knowledgeable at each meeting. I would recommend him to handle all your legal needs. I will use him everytime I need legal help.

I've hired Ernesto on several occassions. I have hired him to handle child placement & child support issues. Most recently he handled my divorce. Ernesto is a wealth of knowledge, caring, attentive and effective. His follow through and attention to detail is flawless. Finally, although I mentioned he is a caring person he is tough as nails when it matters most! I have and will continue recommending him to anyone who needs legal representation!!!

Mr. Romero is the best of the best! He was very prompt and informative. I could tell he takes his work very seriously and makes sure that we get the best outcome possible! Every time I spoke with him, I received his undivided attention. I never met a lawyer who actually cared that much about his job than Ernesto Romero does.
