Ms. Carmina Tessitore guided me through this most painful emotional life changing event with warmth and compassion. When I would feel scared or hopeless in my attempt to end my marriage of 36 years, she was able to restore my confidence that an older woman with no personal assets could have a fair resolution and begin an independent life. It was imperative that I divorce a very difficult man and she developed a professional strategy that allowed me to retain my last shred of dignity without resorting to personal attacks or trying to win what is fair through fault finding and mudslinging. How wise she is because my formally loving husband decided that he would design the divorce that way. I asked Carmina to take the high road and she immediately agreed. Her skills were evident by demonstrating that honesty was key in the courtroom. As a result, the final terms of the divorce were highly favorable for me and reacting by not attacking him actually imploded his strategy. I will never look back with regret and I can hold my head up high. Believe me; this is the attorney who can handle the spouse with the anger issues and she exposed the hostility without ever suggesting that it is obviously there. The trial was far from easy, but she was loving and kind to me throughout the bombardment of challenges he designed to hurt me. I was never worried and we were successful. I highly recommend Carmina and I couldn't have done this end of an era without her. I'm living my new life and it's a good life.

I met Carmina after years and several other attempts at beating my case. It was a tough case. She handled two of mine. Like phenomenal and exquisite professional fire she nailed the entire thing. (Both times!) She is truly the most passionate, dedicated attorney I have ever come across! Never once did I question her, she was confident and well knowledged. She captivates in the courtroom. She is THE Carmina Tessitore! There is no other for sure! You would not be disappointed! I will forever be grateful for meeting her!

Carmina was very attentive and listened to me to learn the history behind my case which made me very comfortable with her, and it earned my trust in her and her ability to defend me . Being that this was not the first time I had to present to the courts with issues/claims with the biological father, Carmina truly took the time to grasp the scope of what I was needing her for. That alone made me feel relaxed and confident in her ability to get me through this litigation both legally and emotionally. During the proceedings the defendant attempted to bully and hard hand the situation. Carmina took control of the situation, first reassuring me and then proceeding to get to the end point. Without her, I would not have gotten there. The attention that I received, the reassurance helped me keep it together and achieve an outcome that I never thought would transpire period, let alone in 1 day! A personal friend, Attorney Joe Tramuta referred me to Carmina, and he had told me she was the one to get it done...well Joe I owe you 2 bottle of wine! Carmina, I owe you 1 too. Thank you, Joann

After speaking to other attorneys, I chose Carmina Tessitore who took the time to meet with me first to make sure we were a good fit. She was both compassionate and professional, and her friendly personality won my trust. I knew she had my best interest in mind at all times. She honored her promise to expedite my divorce, as she was aware of a recent change in uncontested situations, going the extra mile to file this paperwork, sparing me the grief of dragging this out, and helping me to move on sooner than expected. Whenever I had concerns, she was accessible and emailed me back the same day. I would highly recommend Carmina to anyone in need of an efficient, positive outcome for legal assistance.

Carmina handled an extremely contentious divorce for me and was extremely knowledgeable about the circumstances surrounding gay civil union and marriage law in CT. She was able to negotiate an acceptable settlement for me in a case that could have dragged on for years. Her attention to detail, prompt responses to my questions, and courtroom presence were all exceptional.

Attorney Tessitore was a life saver for my husband and me. We were unable to make a few mortgage payments and the bank placed us in pre foreclosure. As we are not at all familiar with court processes, we hired Carmina to represent us. The process was difficult and long, but now that it is ended, all I can say is Carmina knows the law! She was always on top of the issues in a timely manner and brought us to the end of our nightmare with confidence and knowledge!

Carmina was great from start to finish. She was patient with my back and forth when making the decision to officially file, and then once the decision was made she was quick, highly consultative, and efficient. She is smart and respectful. She is not one of those lawyers who try and drive up your bill. I highly reccomend her if you want a smooth and efficient divorce process!
