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.
