Gerry Maggio was my second Family Attorney in a 3 year battle. I wished he was my first…Gerry is caring, compassionate and highly knowledgable on all aspects of Divorce and property negotiation.
He is honest and calm but will not allow his client to be walked over. His fees were fair and he gets along well with the Family Law Community which isn't always the case with some lawyers.
Gerry is a family man and understands the emotions that come with Divorce. He will definitely tell you what is reality and won't chase something that is unrealistic and costly. His compassion towards children is honest and heartfelt during a time of confusion and turmoil. This helps the parent make the best decision for everyone; not just themselves…..Thank you Gerry
My divorce was a complicated one and I needed a lawyer that I can trust. Someone who is knowledgeable with the law as well as how to deal with difficult people. Someone who is ethical and can get me what is ethically mine. Mr. Maggio always kept me informed. I'm very blessed to have him as my lawyer.
Very fair and impartial in the mediation process.
Excellent service. Gerry was very fair and impartial in mediation.
“I did my homework and carefully considered his reviews and the endorsements of other attorneys before choosing Mr. Maggio to handle my divorce. I definitely made the right decision. Mr. Maggio did everything he said that he would do, he handled my case professionally, worked out a good resolution of my case, and billed me fairly. He explained my options and presented them in a cost-benefit analysis manner that really allowed me to determine the best way to proceed. I would highly recommend Mr. Maggio and now I actually have some faith in the legal system because of him.”
It was a difficult process for me, but Gerry walked me though it one step at a time. He is a great attorney who understood what I was going through.
Mr. Maggio represented me in a family matter. I came to Mr. Maggio from a yelp search which was risky I know. But when I informed Mr. Maggio that the previous attorney really took me for a ride Mr. Maggio really did make me feel comfortable and more importantly made me feel that I could trust him with proper billing. Billing aspect aside Mr. Maggio handled my case professionally and efficiently. I was so happy just to have someone fight for me as if it were his own personal case in court that at the end of the proceeding I gave him a hug. And I'm not a huger I'm more of a firm hand shake kind of guy! I would definitely use him again and definitely would recommend Mr. Maggio!
Gerry was so awesome. My divorce was so smooth from start to finish and he made the whole process painless. He definitely has my recommendation to anyone in need of a family law attorney. Hands down one of the best family law attorneys in the O.C. in my opinion.
Mr.Maggio represented me on a child support issue. My ex was attempting to hide income because he worked for a family owned business. My Ex allegedly got a significant "pay cut". Mr.Maggio did his research and found the missing income. He prepared a detailed memorandum for the court that unveiled the scam. The judge agreed that the pay cut was a scam and ruled to hold my ex accountable for actual income. If Mr. Maggio didn't do his research to uncover the money, and didn't put together a detailed report for the court I would be paying my ex child support. I appreciate Mr.Maggios thoroughness in my case.
Mr. Maggio came recommended by a friend. I felt quite at ease with him from the first encounter. He answered all my questions no matter how silly they were. I highly recommend Mr. Maggio.
