Posted by Allison
When I first met with Lisa I was scared and overwhelmed at the difficulty I knew my divorce would be. I did not understand divorce can be a process that is very complex. Lisa and her staff did a great job guiding me every step of the way. I loved that when I wanted to back down on things out of emotions Lisa would bring me back to reality and she never backed down as she always kept my best interest up front. Lisa, I can't thank you and Caitlyn enough for all you have done for me through my horrific and sometimes terrifying divorce. You really were there for me every step of the way and made me feel like I was a priority not just another client and for that you are truly one of a kind.

"I just want to start by saying Attorney Lisa Ruggieri and her team managed to do the impossible in my case. Anyone who has been to court with Lisa knows she is a skilled advocate and she does not back down from a fight! Thanks to Lisa and her associate, Caitlin, the Court extended my restraining order and finally restored safety and peace of mind for me and my two children. Lisa and Caitlin stood by my side and protected my interests through every step of this difficult, emotional process. I could not be happier with the outcome of my case thus far, and I know I can count on them to see me through the rest of my divorce. I highly recommend the Law Office of Lisa Ruggieri to anyone in need of a family law attorney."

I highly recommend Lisa and Caitlin to anyone in need of a family attorney or criminal defense attorney. My case involved a complicated divorce involving a minor child. Lisa and Caitlin guided me through each court appearance step by step. As a devoted father, they fought and protected my rights. I truly appreciate all their hard work on my case to close this difficult chapter in my life. Thank you!

Since the outset of my divorce, I have been impressed time and time again by Lisa and her associate, Caitlin. I know I hired the best lawyers for the job. Lisa and Caitlin have guided me through this process step by step and have offered clear and honest advice. They are caring, devoted, and responsive. As a stay-at-home mother of three young children with an “absentee” husband, my primary concern is securing my financial future. Lisa has taken every step to educate me and protect my rights throughout this process. Thank you!

Lisa is an outstanding divorce attorney with extraordinary legal expertise, negotiating acumen, and remarkable professionalism. Lisa and her associate, Caitlin, provided concrete, unwavering support for me from the beginning to the end. They understood my goals and came up with effective strategies to help me achieve them. Like most clients, I wished my case could be settled as soon as possible on the day I filed for divorce. However, conflicts and tension were inevitable. Nothing prepares you for the emotional roller-coaster during a divorce. But Lisa and her team were always there for me. She would immediately return my phone calls and e-mails. Not a day went by when I felt like I was left in the dark on anything that was happening in my case. There were many false and erroneous accusations made against me in order to strengthen my Wife’s case and limit my interactions with our children. However, Lisa used this to our defense and during negotiations, Lisa’s poise, creative problem solving, and knowledge of the law absolutely prevailed. I cannot thank Lisa enough. I am eternally grateful to her. She is definitely the kind of lawyer who clients can fully trust and rely on in tough times.

My first meeting with Lisa should have been my cue that she was not up for the job and in my opinion, not capable of presenting herself as a professional. First, upon my arrival for our initial meeting, her dog was running around the office, barking and nipping at my feet while we walked from the reception desk to her office. Once she managed to corale that mess and get down to business about my case, her tone and prejudgement of my situation was unbelievably disrespectful and condescending. I truly did not believe what I was hearing after I summarized my divorce situation. Ms. Ruggieri's response was, "This case is peanuts to me. I deal with million dollar divorces all the time. We're dealing with peanuts here." As shocked as I was, I returned for a second meeting to discuss my case in more detail, dismissing the comment as poor judgement on her part, but giving her some "professional slack".
Although I was not one of her millionaire clients as she claimed to have represented, there was no reason for her to minimize my life in a matter of seconds. In addition, I was totally unfamiliar with the process of a divorce, which was never explained to me. During our second meeting, she lacked the ability to communicate her strategy and approach towards my case. In addition, she failed to convince me she was in my corner. For example, in an attempt to get more detail of the case, Lisa called my ex wife's attorney and it seemed as though she was strategizing about my case on my ex wife's behalf rather than mine! This attitude continued until I requested she no longer represent me and that she submit a Notice of Withdrawal as my attorney, which she has done.

Lisa and her team are exactly who you want on your side during any divorce. Lisa does not back down from a fight – she is tough, experienced, knowledgeable, and sensible. Married for twenty-one years with three children, divorce was a difficult and emotional process for me. Lisa steered me away from the emotions and kept the focus on negotiating and finalizing my divorce. She protected my interests and skillfully negotiated a complicated division of assets, which included irrevocable trusts and inheritance issues. Lisa was a zealous advocate on my behalf throughout the divorce process and mediation. Ultimately, after three days of mediation, she secured a fantastic outcome without the unnecessary expense and risk of a trial. Thank you for your great work!!!

If you find yourself in Probate court post-divorce like I did, you want the person representing you to fight for you like Lisa did for me. At times we had to wait to be called and I had the opportunity to see other lawyers in action, none of them compared to Lisa. She was always extremely prepared, well spoken, highly respected by her peers, persuasive and effective. Losing is not an option for her, and she really cares about her clients and wants to assist them to the best of her ability. I cannot say enough good things about her and I'm just glad I found her before my ex did!!!

A few words I can use to describe my experience in working with Lisa Ruggieri and her staff in my recent divorce are: Knowledgeable, direct, goal-oriented, experienced, confidence-inspiring, efficient...Kind, and understanding, but not emotionally effusive. Extremely professional and got the job done in surprisingly short time.
Her colleague Caitlin was also always open to answering questions and helping me understand the process of what I was going through, In short, Very happy with their work.

Lisa provided a firm hand to guide me through a very difficult divorce process. She was very honest with me and never made any promises on which she could not deliver. I feel that because of Lisa, I got the best possible result in my divorce. It really is a good feeling, especially during such a turbulent time to know that you have the best representation possible. That is Lisa.
