Dennis is a great lawyer he does understand the dynamics of family and the effects of court. I have the best experience and he was the 3 Lawyer in my case so I know what I am saying... I had a very ugly divorce.

Dishonest lawyer. If your case goes too long he will make sure it goes to court so he can make his pay-off. He says he is good in court; he is not good in court.
He cost me a lot of money, and it continues with more court proceedings because of him. My case should never have gone to court. Stay away from this guy. If this helps one person then I m glad I wrote this. I've had nothing but heartache. He lost me almost all my custody of my child because we went to court. The CFI had me at 2x the custody. He gets the family all upset with each other. He is not for the child's best interest. Wish I had read the reviews on him before I went to court or hired him. I asked him to settle and he refused saying we were too far apart. It was a disaster. I'm in an apartment with no money from my house and my ex-wife is in the house with one of my children. It was a terrible time in my life when I needed an advocate, Dennis made it a lot worse.

Dennis Lacerte was my divorce attorney.
Completely lost the case.What I don't like about Lacerte that he violated Professional Codes of Conduct:
1. Completely not Competent. Misrepresented the case: Refused to submit any of my evidences that will help to win the case, refused to invite any of my witnesses who will testify that my husband physically obused me, including police report. Didn't filed paper on time, missed conferences because went to vacation, was 20 minutes late for the court,
2. Lack of Diligence. Was not honest with me and even rud. Complete absence of compassion and respect to client. He talked to my exhusband several times even last one had an attorney. During hearing never objected any false information, was poor prepared for the hearing, wasn't agressive, and didn't care about the issues.
3. Fees - He charged unreasonable amount of fees. Inflaimed the working time in biils, billed for the services that was not provided, etc.
4. Lack of Communication. He has never explained any process. I had trying to reach him for more than two weeks to get information.
