I retained Frances Oliveri as my divorce attorney in 2013. Throughout the process, she became an integral part of my support system, not only legally but also emotionally. Frances has deep knowledge and understanding about the laws and regulations of divorce. She constantly updated me on the progress of my case. All necessary paperwork and documentation was submitted in a timely fashion that made the complicated process of divorce move smoothly and quickly. Frances returned all phone calls, even frantic calls made on the weekends, within hours. It was in those emotional moments, that I was and still am grateful for Frances. Her legal expertise combined with patience and kindness alleviated my anxiety and saw me through a difficult period. My divorce was finalized two years ago, yet Frances continues to provide me with the same support. When I was initially looking for a lawyer, no one told me that I would need to be in contact with him or her after the settlement. I still work with Frances to maintain or modify the conditions of the divorce (i.e. parenting plan, change of address, or salary adjustments). As always, Frances works with me to navigate these adjustments. I remain thankful for Frances’ legal knowledge and emotional support.

Frances Oliveri was extremely helpful in amicably resolving all issues pertaining to my divorce. In addition to being trustworthy, responsive, and knowledgable, Frances was considerate, kind, and a pleasure to work with. There were many difficult moments during the divorce process where I was in need of expert, timely, and rational guidance. Frances was always there for me during those times. She was that much needed voice of reason in the sea of emotion that I sometimes found myself in. From beginning to end, Frances helped me keep my eyes on the ultimate goal of ensuring the care and consideration of my three children. Always level-headed, reasonable, and understanding, Frances was able to both 'be on my side' and to cooperatively point the way forward with my ex-spouse's lawyer. In the end, we settled out of court in a way that satisfied both parties. Most importantly for me, the things I had put in place for my children remained in place. I feel confident about the future knowing that my children will be taken care of and that I will be with them much of the time. Frances was instrumental in making this happen: I consider myself blessed to have had her as my counsellor.

Frances Oliveri is a compassionate and extremely capable attorney who helped us win several victories in family court. Frances encouraged us to hire some third party experts (an employability expert and a forensic accountant) to evaluate my ex-husband and debunk many of his false claims. She also challenged him to provide medical evidence of his claim that he was unable to work, which he could not prove. This turned out to be a good strategy, and the magistrate not only dismissed his claim to reduce child support, but she found him to be willful in non-payment of past-due child support. He went to jail for 10 days, before deciding to pay what he owed! Frances alo successfully petitioned the court to make my ex-husband pay our legal expenses, and that was granted as well. Frances is tough and comnposed in the court room, and compassionate on a personal level. We can't say enough how much we appreciated having her on our side.
