When you only expect the best.
Chuck Vuotto is the fourth attorney that I engaged to help me with my very complicated Family Law issue. He was the most professional, caring and thorough person I have dealt with professionally in many years. In the beginning I thought he was being a little too detail orientated until I realized he was looking at every single facet of my case from inception over 22 years ago. He wanted to know every little thing which helped him determine the way he was going to approach a settlement. He was honest, direct and pushed me to remove myself from the emotional issues that I didn't realize I was carrying around. Of the hundreds of professional men and women I have dealt with in my 45 years of business, he truly ranks among the top! In my experience with him I found someone who wasn't afraid to tell me the I wasn't being objective or that I wasn't looking at the big picture. He also amazed me with his math skills and he uses his experience to help you understand the tax consequences and the value of your present and future earnings and savings. This man is a wonderful and caring individual who will get you through your toughest times and will be more than just your attorney. I would recommend him to everyone. Chuck is a true professional. He was successful in getting a great and fair resolution for myself and my family. Thanks, you are the best.

Terrific Divorce Attorney!!
I was recommended to Charles by a leading NJ Forensic CPA. My financial situation is very complex and Charles was able to navigate through financial issues with various family trusts and partnerships . He has a keen understanding of financial matters which most attorneys lack and was a pleasure to work with.

Brilliant Attorney
Charles Vuotto and his staff provided excellent advice and professional service for a post divorce alimony matter that I was involved in. Mr. Vuotto was always available to me. His kindness and knowledge will never be forgotten. Through his brilliant representation, I was able to settle this matter in a most positive manner. I will be forever grateful to Mr. Vuotto and his staff. If you are looking for a top notch attorney, Mr. Vuotto is the one to retain.

Prepared & Experienced
A friend and colleague recommended Chuck Vuotto to me about a year ago to handle a difficult matrimonial matter. I needed to revisit a property settlement agreement that no longer seemed fair and equitable. Anyone who knows family law will tell you it is a great challenge, next to impossible perhaps, to change the terms of a PSA once finalized. At our first meeting, Chuck listened carefully and immersed himself in the facts. He immediately offered perspective, a solid and realistic plan, and easily cited the law to back up his positions. During our first conference with the other side, I knew I didn't just hire any attorney; I finally had a fierce advocate who was going to actually fight for me, not just school me in what would happen if I didn't immediately go along with whatever was presented to me. And fight he did. He completely took charge of the room, not by bullying or making bombastic threats, but with facts, law, and evidence. It was nothing short of astonishing, especially having felt so defeated by the process in the past. Moving forward, he was always two steps ahead of his adversary by anticipating their positions and developing strategies to diminish them one by one. He left no stone unturned. By the time the case reached the last and crucial stage of negotiations, Chuck was so thoroughly prepared there was no doubt that we were ready for court and on solid ground if a resolution didn't take place. Due to Chuck's preparedness, what I thought was impossible was accomplished without having to file a single motion or step one foot in a courtroom. Chuck is not inexpensive. You can find cheaper representation and that's fine if all you have to do is decide who gets the coffee table. But if you're dealing with real assets and money, property, alimony, children and need dependable, solid representation to resolve your situation as fairly and quickly as possible, you need an expert like Chuck Vuotto, a lawyer who has dedicated 100% of his practice to family law issues. I would also mention that I own a workers' comp law practice and have been trying cases for over 20 years. As such, I've worked with literally hundreds of attorneys and recognize an exceptional lawyer like Chuck when I meet him. I have recommended Chuck to clients and colleagues and will continue to do so; he is simply the best as what he does.

Excellent!
Started working with Mr. Vuotto last month and I can say that he and his staff are phenomenal. Considering the circumstances, they are extremely compassionate and very on top of their game. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in need of their counsel.

Fair thoughtful divorce counseling.
Chuck was fair and forthright giving excellent counsel. Sometimes i didn't want to hear it but he was right . Emotional time and you need someone who will not be afraid to give counsel. His manner is forthright but sensitive to your circumstances. In the end he helped expedite the divorce and avoided litigation. To this day i consider him not only as a lawyer but a friend.

A Uniquely Qualified Attorney
I went through a divorce some years ago. Chuck was a strong advocate for me and ensured I was protected but was also practical in ensuring the legal did not go on and was settled amicably. I have enthusiastically referred to him ever since and have used him for other matters.
