John is superb. He is the third attorney that I have worked with in my protracted divorce, custody fights and ongoing litigation with my ex-wife. I wish he had been my first. He knows the law, is always prepared and does not make promises he can't keep. We actually went to trial and John was always in control. I trust John completely.

I was referred by a colleague, who as an attorney, explained to me that if he ever needed a divorce attorney he would hire John Paone. I knew there would be no doubt that my divorce was going to be ugly and complicated. My soon to be ex was less than reasonable. (Actually, he was totally unreasonable!) Retaining John was the best thing I could have ever done. I felt confident having Mr. Paone as my attorney, in fact, he was so prepared and organized that the opposition would often ask John for copies of documents in court. Everyone was amazed as was the judge! John is well informed of the law, keeps current, is thorough, organized, articulate, and probably one of the best litigators one could ever want. I was proud and relieved he was on my side.
If you need someone who will represent you as if you were his family, I would suggest hiring John Paone. He will tell you like it is so there are no surprises. You can sleep good at night knowing that he is prepared for anything or anyone! I was very pleased with the outcome of my settlement and I have John to thank for that! I am not a big fan of lawyers ( sorry John!) but he is one that earns the highest level of respect from me!
Thank you Mr. John P. Paone!
