I would highly recommend Attorney Rao
I decided to retain Attorney Rao to represent me in an ongoing contempt case and was extremely impressed with his professionalism and clear knowledge of all aspects of family law. I was really anxious, and had a great deal of questions and concerns, and Attorney Rao did a great job of answering my questions and explaining the good, bad and ugly of my case. He also walked me through each step of the process and was able to provide me with a clear understanding of what was taking place. Attorney Rao was aggressive with opposing counsel when the situation called for it and was able to present my case to the judge in a very clear and concise manner. If I ever need assistance in the future I will most certainly contact Attorney Rao and feel confident in recommending him. JF - Boston

Great lawyer!
I had a child support issue with my ex. Attorney Rao assisted me with the entire process, for a fair and very reasonable price. He was thoughtful, articulate and performed extremely well in the courtroom. I would highly recommend him for any legal issues.

Thoughtful, fair, and great courtroom presence.
Anthony is a great attorney, and unlike other attorneys I have used, he returned phone calls, was fair, ethical, and thoughtful.

Great attorney
DOR took my license, and levied my bank account. Attorney Rao helped resolve all these matters, and got my child support reduced. I was very pleased with his work.

Young, aggressive, honest, smart.
Handled my divorce in Essex County. He was honest, smart, and was always available to answer any questions I had. Seemed very well-informed, and always gave me all of the information available to help me make decisions on my case. Seemed more interested in getting things done the right way then charging me too much in legal fees. Great attorney!

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
3 years of waiting and nothing.
I hired Anthony in 2012 when I was working in Afghanistan to deal with a contempt case. I was his client for the purpose of filing contempt charges against the ex-wife and modifying the current orders we had in place. Mr. Rao communicated well when I was deployed, but once I got to the US the communications were very scarce. There was always an excuse as to why there were no returned phone calls. Hired in November 2012 and here we are November 2012, all he has done is file one document with Dukes county and it turns out it was the wrong one. This attorney does not return calls, texts, emails, or correspondences of any kind unless you become "The squeaky wheel". On the up-side, his pricing is fair when we first spoke and I thought I was getting a deal. Unfortunately, nothing has happened in my case since the attorney STILL has not filed the correct paperwork regardless of my please. I understand that Dukes county is quite the distance from his office, but this is not an excuse to delay filings and get traction on this old case. I am highly disappointed and further broken by the lack of respect and attention from this attorney. I do not recommend Mr. Rao.
