Attorney Boni Vendola is exceptional! Our family went through an incredibly difficult custody battle, and Corrine handled it with high integrity, smart legal counsel, and helped our family to feel we had someone in our corner fighting for us. She helped give us hope during a difficult process.

Exceptional lawyer to represent you!!
First of all, Attorney Boni-Vendola is an outstanding lawyer and I give my strongest recommendation. Attorney Boni-Vendola is my third lawyer for my divorce case, and I only regret I didn't find her earlier. My first lawyer is from a pretty well-known firm and was referred to me by someone I work with. But very surprisingly, she went to the judge's chamber and made a deal on behalf of me against my will (even though I was very clear about what I wanted before she went to see the judge). Furthermore, she pressured me to sign the agreement. Thinking back, I don't think she was ill intentioned, she just wanted to get me divorced as soon as she could and she may not have enough experience for cases like mine. After talking with other professionals, they all suggested me to change a lawyer. With a friend's referral, I started with my 2nd lawyer. He is super nice, but he is very busy and didn't have much time for my case. I had worked with him for a little over a year (COVID made all the divorce cases delayed) and felt very frustrated. That's when a professional recommended Attorney Boni-Vendola. Attorney Boni-Vendola is a completely different experience! She is very experienced (you will know by the suggestions she gives, how she works with another party and the judges), efficient (never waste your time when speaking with you, and get right to the point), listened to what I wanted and fought on my behalf, would not let me waste money on things not necessary. Most importantly, she was after me for what I should do, not the other way around. Examples include knowing that I wanted the divorce trial to happen ASAP, she filed for objection right after my ex-husband submitted his request to postpone the trial date. I only found out these activities through online notifications altogether with judge's approval to our objection a couple of days later. I really appreciate the way she handled this and her consideration because it would only add my worry if I knew. She also standed on my point of view to think and gave me invaluable advice. Mostly importantly, she did not pressure me on anything. I am very grateful that I had her as my attorney and I strongly recommend her without any reservation.

The Best!
I hired Corrine to help me with my divorce in 2008, based on a friend’s recommendation. She helped me and supported me during a very difficult time, as did her entire staff. Since then she has helped me with several things such as Wills, Living Wills, etc. Her firm has always treated me fairly financially and they have promptly helped me with anything I have ever asked for. She is a true professional. Look no further.

Corrine helped me through one of the most difficult and emotional time in my life. Dealing with a custody case is never easy she showed such compassion and support and made sure she went above and beyond to look out for the best interest of my children. I would highly recommend her for anyone going through such an unfortunate situation. She also has a great staff and team behind her so you always feel comfortable and know your in good hands.

Former Satisfied Divorce Client
I retained Attorney Boni-Vendola several years ago regarding my divorce from my husband. My daughter was young, my husband and I owned a business and it was a very stressful time. Knowing that I had Attorney Boni-Vendola representing my best interests made the process much easier to deal with. I was able to easily reach her to discuss issues, have my questions answered and understand the divorce process itself. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer and staff and would without a doubt reach out to her again with any future legal issues that I might have. I would highly recommend Attorney Boni-Vendola to anyone going through a divorce or any type of family matter. You will never get the high level of professionalism and personal attention that you receive from her firm anywhere else.

Divorce Representation
Corrine and her staff were very understanding of my situation and what I would need from my now ex-husband in order to live the rest of my life without worry. I cried often in the beginning and tissues were always handy! Nothing like working with a bunch of understanding woman when you are going through something like this after more than 26 years married! Simply can't go wrong with this office!

Highly recomended
She helped me work out an agreement with my ex husband to pay for post secondary education expenses for my daughter. This was an agreement signed during my divorce about 14 years ago. She got me through a very stressful situation in a professional manner. Even after the matter was settled she was willing to answer some questions that I had. She is great!
