Awesome
Bonnie represented me in a difficult child custody case. She did a fantastic job and won the case. She investigates thoroughly, is persuasive, persistent, and caring every step of the way. I am so glad I found her and highly recommend her,

Look no further: HIRE HER
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.

You want to win your case - HIRE BONNIE ASAP
Bonnie Amendola and all who work with her are people who you'll want on your side during the divorce proceedings. Attorney Amendola and I worked together for almost 3 years, with ups and downs, Bonnie won my divorce, custody, relocation case. Hire this professional.

Tough but always cool
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!!!

Bonnie Amendola
I hired Bonnie and her firm of Amendola and Amendola for my divorce after one meeting on the spot, after i consulted with a handful of other lawyers and mediators. Bonnie was a great listener, very compassionate, very knowledgeable and tough, all at the same time. She has years of experience and her expertise show when discussing the case with you or her team in regards to financial decisions, both short and long term effects, as well as her personal compassion that comes through when you talk with her. i would highly recommend Bonnie to anyone having to deal with family law and marital issues.

"I have known Bonnie for roughly 25 years and know here to be one the brightest, most prepared and honest attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Bonnie's knowledge of the substantive law is unmatched, and her willingness to go to bat for her clients sets her apart from any attorney I know. Bonnie has the unique ability to get to the heart of any matter or legal issue with ease, and, more importantly, to explain it in straight talk. Her instincts are impeccable as is her honesty and forthrightness. Anybody who hires Bonnie will know that their resources are extremely well spent."
