Thank God that, I found Lattera & Hodge Team.
I found Scott Laterra here on Avvo. It was absolutely the right choice.
From the beginning, Scott displayed his complete knowledge of the law and expertise. He is very attentive, good listener; always explain difficult legal issues with patience and insight on how it would impact my case. Majority of lawyers take advantage of the vulnerable situation and will take more unnecessary action to charge more money for the service, you will not see this at Laterra&Hodge.
Scott is very ethical in his approach, does not resort to overblown hyperbole, but presents strong, logical arguments that are well received by the courts.
Laterra&Hodge has a great team of attorneys including Scott, Jeff, and Sunita as well paralegal Valentina, the most professional person I have ever worked with returned every call or email same day. They treated a difficult, emotional situation with utmost professionalism respect and compassion.
I certainly would give them my recommendation.

Scott Laterra recently handled my divorce for me. Comparatively speaking, my situation was simple, straightforward, and mostly amicable, and money for legal fees was tight. Scott and his staff provided the necessary guidance and expertise to enable us to get through what could have been a miserable experience quickly while minimizing our costs. Even while he had bigger, more contentious cases going on, I always received the attention and responses I needed. I would recommend Scott and his team.

I found Scott Laterra here on Avvo. And after viewing multiple attorneys' feedbacks, I decided to go with him. It was absloutely the right choice. He is very attentive, good listerner, will hear you and work with you. My content stems from the fact that I was not misguided throughout the process of my divorce. Majority of lawyers take advantage of the vulnerable situation and milk your bank account all out. Well, not this one.
My divorce was finalized last week. He even cut me a break on my last invoice. I genuinely think he did deserve the fees I paid given his and his office proficiency. No doubt I'll use him again if I needed a legal advice.

Scott was retained as my attorney for divorce proceedings about five years ago. From the beginning, he displayed his complete knowledge of the law and individual rights. With compassion, he worked with me to steer clear of unnecessary conflicts and expenses.
During the entire process, I felt like I was with a trusted friend while receiving excellent advice. He even made himself available for many important discussions well after business hours and on weekends.
Since the divorce, Scott has worked diligently to advise me on any issues that have arisen. He helped me to resolve any and all additional concerns in a very timely and professional manner.
I am confident in recommending Scott to friends, family and associates for his outstanding legal skills and advice.

Scott has my attorney on a very diificult and emotional case for the past four years. At every turn, Scott has been there for me, able to explain difficult legal issues with patience and insight on how it would impact my case. He and his partnter, Jeff Hodge, ably represented me throughout the process, succesfully arguing many of the important issues to me of the case such as custody of our children.
Scott is very ethical in his approach, does not resort to overblown hyperbole, but presents strong, logical arguements that are well recieved by the courts.
Scott and his firm are more than fair in their approach to billings and fees, I felt that I was a part of the process throughout the case and they always informed me of the impact to my case.
I have referred two of my friends to Scott, who have needed the services of attorney, and write this open recommendation for anyone who wants a smart, ethical lawyer, they would do well having Scott as their counsel.

I retained Scott Laterra in my divorce proceedings in 2014. I couldn't have chosen a better attorney. Scott is great. He is very professional and a great listener. He made sure that everything we were working for was clear and that I understood the outcome. Him and is team are the best at what they do. I would go back to them in a heartbeat.

Scott is a very compassionate attorney who took all the necessary steps to move my divorce forward in the most cost effective way possible. He is an expert in matrimonial law. Scott made sure I understood every single option of my divorce proceeding and made sure I was comfortable with whatever decisions were made. He has outstanding listening skills and was very supportive during my divorce proceeding. LaTerra and Hodge has a great team of attorneys including Scott, Jeff, and Sunita. Valentina, the paralegal, is also wonderful. She was very attentive to my needs. The firms billing was very reasonable especially considering the amount of work that had to be done for my divorce. I recommend LaTerra and Hodge to anyone seeking a matrimonial attorney.

Scott was very helpful and honest when consulting with me. While some lawyers may take advantage and prey on a client during a vulnerable time, Scott gave me trustworthy advise and comfort during a nerve racking situation. Very professional and reliable from what I've experienced so far.

Mr Laterra was my lawyer for divorce that was finalized in August 2014. I started with mediation in January with a different lawyer - which was a disaster. The mediation lawyer was not responsive. Mr Laterra worked to get the MOU done and the PSA and subsequently the divorce in a timely manner with no unnecessary drama. His paralegal, Ms. Khadkevich, is the most professional person I have ever worked with and returned every call or email same day. They treated a difficult, emotional situation with utmost respect and I certainly would give them my recommendation.

Scott and his assistant Valentina were genuinely helpful and very professional.
From start till the end they were there for me.
There were very reasonable in their billing as well.
I wish there are more law firms like them.
I highly recommend them.
