A wonderful experience!
Divorce is difficult for anyone. If it’s something you have to endure I would highly recommend John Tangusso. After speaking to other lawyers, he was the clear choice. He was thoughtful in his approach and professional when assisting me during this process. He has the heart to understand what someone is going through during this tumultuous time and makes it as simple as possible. He truly takes care of his clients. With John as my lawyer, I was able to achieve what my ex and I wanted in the smoothest way possible. I cannot say enough praise. Thank you, John!

John represented me in a case a few years back , which was a scam to extort money . John had very little time to prepare , yet he was amazing in the courtroom . He picked up on all the important details and had the alleged witness so befuddled that he stopped talking and just stared at his shoes. It was no surprise when we won the case!

would not recommend him
hired him for my divorce case. He sent submit the document to court but was unable to complete my case within 2 years long. He overcharged me for some "research" that was never completed hence the delayed. I had to take my case elsewhere because after charging $2000 FOR basic work, he wanted another $2500 to complete. And he had to add " The act of marrying is a whole easier than that of divorce." Very UNECESSARILY to say to someone that you are representing and is already going through a hard time. Divorce is not easy but he makes it worse.
