Please don't confuse Attorney Elaine Amendola with Bonnie Amendola. While Elaine Amendola is a good lawyer, Bonnie is not. I hired her to work on my custody case. She is not a good litigator. She tends say one thing, but does differently in front of judges. For example, she said that my custody case is not worth a custody evaluation, then she would recommend one in front of the judge to drag the process much longer to make more money. She said she investigated the case by interviewing schools, teachers, and therapists. It turned out she did nothing when i tried to verify with those people. Don't recommend her at all. She is not professional and not ethical. can't litigate at all.

Attorney Amendola is a natural. She won me sole custody with all kinds of protections for my young son. She cares about people, cares about how much this ugly process affects one's whole life. She represented me in what became a messy, complicated case because the lawyer I'd retained prior to her only cared about the money he could make by playing a ping pong game with my case using the court system to his advantage.
This is the kind of person you want and need on your side whether it is about custody, family financial matters, relocation matters. She's your best tool and weapon in a tough system. Our outcome was a total legal system success in part because of the excellent Judge we were lucky to have, and because of Bonnie's attention to the important areas of focus.

I consulted Bonnie for my divorce case and hired her on spot without thinking (She was very highly regarded by mediator I used before as among top 3 women lawyers in our area - I specifically wanted woman representing me in Court ;-)). She is a good listener. She gets core of the issue. She was very close in her estimations of the end result for me but case took little longer than I would like only because of stubbornness and dirty tactics of the other side. Initially I worked with another excellent member of Bonnie’s team. She was always briefed on case and she jumped on final stages with absolute confidence and knowledge. I was treated with tact and dignity. She never lost her cool while opposing lawyer was clearly uncomfortable in her presence. Couple of little details which I won't elaborate here boosted my confidence in integrity of Amendola & Amendola. Hire Bonnie without hesitation - you won't regret!!!

I was fortunate to have had the chance to work with Bonnie on a few matters while I was in law school. She possesses all of the qualities that you would expect of a lawyer. She is always the most prepared and is excellent at communicating her legal position to the court. I highly recommend her as an attorney.
