UNPARALLELED, EXCEPTIONAL, EXTRAORDINARY, OUTSTANDING,
When I started my search in February for a divorce attorney, I met Mr. Puglisi, and I was instantly extremely confident that I needed to search no further. Am I glad I decided to hire him to handle my case right there and then! Mr. Puglisssi possesses all the qualifications one would hope to find in a divorce lawyer, and more. Not only is he experienced, well informed, competent, professional, proficient, and considerate. He is also as importantly, remarkably ethical. I was truly amazed by his capacity to quickly pick up on important details of my case to which I oftentimes was oblivious. Additionally, he is thorough in his reviews of whatever information, correspondence, and/or concerns one throws at him. He is super quick in responding to phone calls and emails. And on top of all that, he is the only lawyer I know who tries to save you money when offering his legal advice! Mr. Puglisi runs an extraordinarily impressive law practice, and he is surrounded by a team of the most extraordinary professionals I have had the pleasure of working with despite the overwhelming nature of a divorce process. They truly go above and beyond to provide clients with not only legal support and advice, but also on many ocassions, they serve as therapists! I cannot count the many times when I would turn a meeting into a therapy session, and Mr. Puglisi and his amazing legal assistant, Chrissa, would just listen to me, without interrupting or judging and just showed their empathy! I highly recommend Mr. Puglisi as a divorce lawyer. MariN

Best lawyer
I found Phil though asking on Facebook. From the first conversation, to my device being finalized. He made sure I understand everything that was happening. I was very happy to have him represent me. I could not have had a better lawyer.

Highly recommend Phil!
When you are going through difficult legal challenges you need someone you can trust on your side. Phil Puglisi is that attorney. He has a wealth of experience to offer with family court matters, he is calm and reasonable, he is responsive and willing to explain things to allay your fears. And from my experience, he is well respected in the legal community; he has excellent rapport with other attorneys which is also a tremendous benefit as his client. Phil Puglisi is an excellent choice if you need a family law attorney, I value his advice and his representation.

Excellent experience!
Phil and his staff went above and beyond for me. Explained everything throughout the process and made me feel totally prepared every step of the way. We worked together and discussed each issue before submitting to opposing counsel. I always felt like I was in the best hands and the outcome proved that. Chrissa was always right there with quick answers to any questions and Phil was always available to go over any details no matter how little. They got me through a very tough time with wonderful support, spot-on advice, and true compassion. I can't thank them enough! I highly recommend him and his staff!

Thorough
I hired Phil for my initial divorce agreement and he was thorough throughout that entire process. A little over a year of my divorce, I am dealing with post-marital issues due to my ex not complying and rehiring Phil was a great decision. He does his best to keep my costs minimal while doing a great job at working on settling my case fairly. Phil is knowledgeable and thorough with my post-martial issues and has effectively guided me throughout this process. I highly recommend Phil for any family/divorce issues.

Phil recently handled my divorce. He made a difficult situation less so with his patience, understanding and compassion. Phil also did a great job of imparting his vast knowledge of the law in such a way that anyone could understand in a very professional way. He encouraged you to ask questions with no hint a question was a bad one. He also walked me through the whole process dealing with him, other attorney and courts, making me aware of what i could expect. I would highly recommend his services.

EXCELLENT ATTORNEY
I just came from Mr. Puglisi's office after a 4 way with my wife and her lawyer. Phil helped negotiate a very fair settlement. From the receipt of my wife's divorce papers process the stress was unbelievable and Phil did his best to keep me calm and tell me not to worry, that he would take care of everything. I needed that ! Phil is a very calm, very accomplished compassionate attorney and it shows in his preparation, constant attentiveness and ability to negotiate. And as far as fees are concerned, he does his very best to keep them at a minimum as his philosophy is he's there to help his clients, NOT to bilk them. If you are unfortunate enough to need a Divorce Attorney, you should definitely give Phil a call. I couldn't be more satisfied.

Divorce
I hired Mr. Puglisi based on a referral and I was very satisfied with his services. He spent time explaining each detail of the divorce proceedings with me and he never made me feel like he did not have time for my case.

Philip Puglisi did an excellent job as my attorney. I highly recommend him.
My divorce was finalized today, 3/26/2019, and I was represented by Philip Puglisi. Throughout the entire process Mr. Puglisi was thorough, detailed, very informative, and extraordinarily helpful. From the moment I walked into his office, Mr. Puglisi told me what to expect and what he was going to do to help me get through this very tough time in my life. He is a man of his word and he stuck to his word and his commitment to excellence every step of the way. The first time I walked into his office after having been informed by my wife that she was divorcing me, I was scared and full of anxiety. However the fear and anxiety started to go away right after the first time I met with Mr. Puglisi and as the divorce proceedings went on, I was soon free of all fear and anxiety once I saw that I was in great hands and had top notch representation. I am very grateful to have had the good fortune of being represented by Phil Puglisi. For anyone out there in the Northern New Jersey area that is looking for an excellent, top tier divorce lawyer, look no further than Philip Puglisi. Nobody wants to find themselves in a situation where they will need the representation of a TOP OF THE LINE professional like Mr. Puglisi but life happens and when it does, I urge you to contact Phil. I was literally sitting in the courtroom right next to Phil a few hours ago as my divorce was getting finalized and I am writing this note as a divorced father of two beautiful children. If you are reading this and if you are getting divorced, I want you to have the same level of expert representation that I had. Thank you.

Saved us time and money
We hired Mr. Puglisi to get back child support from my wife’s ex. He did a great job for us. He expedited our case so it didn’t drag on. His experience and his instincts paid off and saved us money. Then he went to court with us and negotiated a settlement that was greatly in our favor. We definitely recommend him.

Highly Recommend
Phil was my lawyer for my divorce and helped guide me through a very emotional and challenging time. He always returned calls and emails quickly and made sure that I understood all possible outcomes and alternatives. His legal assistant/secretary is also very kind and warm. Phil was very thorough and I would definitely recommend him to any friend, family member or acquaintance.
