Sharp Attorney with a Heart of Gold
Anthony Gaeta represented me in a recent business matter. While it might have been a minor nuisance for some, it was a major source of stress for me! Anthony guided me every step of the way, always explaining and examining all my options. Words cannot express how thankful I am to have had his knowledge and experience in my corner. His astute negotiating skills and attention to detail netted me a much greater settlement that I anticipated. Anthony is an amazingly intelligent and sharp attorney with a heart of gold!

Outstanding and professional
Anthony has been my council for over eight years and has successfully represented me in a complex divorce and support case. He is excellent in providing clear and straight forward legal advice and is always willing to go the extra mile. He is passionate and understanding, extremely knowledgeable and easy to reach. In short he is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him.

Family Law
Mr. Gaeta represented me in a custody and support hearing for my special needs child. Prior to my court date he took the time to explain the process and wanted me to have a full understanding. He went above and beyond, including verification of certifications from my daughter's doctors and therapists to ensure that he had all the correct information to present to the court. After it was over and we "won" or received a favorable judgment in my child's best interests, which was all I ever wanted the opposing counsel actually said to me "You picked a great one" as he pointed to Mr. Gaeta. It was a terrible time and difficult situation but he made it seem easier somehow.
