Mr Cerreto is a devoted lawyer who takes each clients true needs into consideration.I am disabled and have a small check from the state. Mr Cerreto fought for me to ultimately get a settlement that will make my future a little easier financially. Mr Cerreto aware of my low income even gave me some pro bono hours to keep my bill a bit lower.
I would recommend him for anyone who needs an attorney. Professional and kind a great lawyer and man.

I hired Anniello Ceretto in the end of December 2014 to file a motion to vacate a default divorce. During 15 months of dealing with him, he was constantly lying to me, was never committed to his promises, deceiving and manipulated not only me, but the court staff and my wife’s lawyer. In particular: he was lying and delaying servicing of a motion to the court for almost a month. Later he let me drive under heavy snow from Farmington CT to NJ for a court appearance, he knew was already canceled. He secretly negotiated with my wife lawyer, which violated professional conduct rule. He violated communication rule when he refused to convey information, which I requested to my wife lawyer and the court. Then he was trying to persuade me that instead of proceeding with the motion, he induced me to do and pay him $2000, I should settle with small modification of settlement agreement to enforce a waiver of child support, which was not even applicable to my 19 years old daughter, who already went to college.
I almost fired him in July 2015, but, unfortunately, let him come back, when got into deep clinical depression in September. He made a fun and sadistic satisfaction of my severally depressed condition. He convinced me then to settle with my ex-wife with minuscule alimony of $300. I changed my mind immediately, but was unable to stop him from perusing this settlement despite my repeated demand to halt it. It was another violation of a professional conduct rule. Even after I agreed to this embarrassing settlement, which was for him a quick way out of the case and paid him 1,750 extra for something he influenced me to do against my will, he still manipulated me and a court system for another 5 months.
I finally signed the substitution of attorney request, after paying him 3,750 for “service”, which I was not only benefit from for one cent value, but was harmed and demeaned morally, mentally and financially.
Stay far away from this guy, unless you want to be trapped by his empty promises, constant manipulations and want to waste your hard earned money.

As opposed to many adversaries who enjoy billing their client's more than providing them with legal guidance, Aniello is a practical and efficient adversary. A straight shooter, he understands the case and serves his client's best by working with his adversary to achieve results that may not always be available in Court, A pleasure to work with.

We went to Neil to discuss our debt options, and ultimately retained him to do our bankruptcy. He truly was hands on. He always answered his phone when we had a question, and promptly returned emails. He was extremely considerate and efficient. He remained extremely positive, and that was so important to us. Prior to him, we went to another attorney for a consultation, and left feeling terrible. We were lectured, made to feel irresponsible, and thrown a stack of "papers" to fill out.
We are so grateful to have found Aniello Cerreto, an excellent attorney and a really nice person!

I needed an a lawyer to handle a post divorce matter in a very quick time frame. I asked Aniello and he was quick to answer my questions and gave me frank and responsible answers to all my questions. He handled my sitaution very very well. He , in fact, went above and beyond what was expected. He represnted me with the utmost diligence and I felt very secure in what and how he was handling my case. I was very happy with the outcome, as he saved me not only financially but also saved me from possible arrest. i am very thankfull I had Aniello on my side.

Aniello handled my divorce in a very professional manner and with consideration for what I was going through. I received the right advice and was guided through the process every step of the way. I would recommend Aneillo and I am so glad that I chose him to handle my case. He had the experience to advise me correctly .

Neil over promised his skills in divorce matter and my wife's attorney ran circles around him. He was under prepared and struggled to find credible points to defend our position. In the end he pressed me with (what I later learned) unfounded risks to my case to coach me to a poorly positioned compromise.
As I looked for his replacement - more than two attorneys shook their head when they heard his involvement in the case. He apparently is a traffic court handler who is dabbling into divorce matters and wreaking havoc for his clients. It took me several months to stabilize the damage.

Mr. Cerreto was a breath of fresh air. He is concerned about his clients financial as well as emotional welfare. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is no nonsense, returns phone calls, email, and text messages promptly. He also takes time to explain the process, answer questions with simple explanations and is very professional.
My prior attorney just wanted to create more of an adversarial relationship between the parties and get high billing. He is a nice down-to-earth guy who cares about his clients. He is a team player!
Call him and see,

Mr Cerreto came into my divorce, towards the end, after a very long fight on my own. a fight in which I was losing very badly. I didn't know what I was doing and I couldn't find an attorney thatthat would help me after being so far along into the divorce. Mr Cerreto took a landslide and slowly put it back in my favor. there is not a professional in any profession that I would recommend more highly!!!

Mr. Cerreto is a true peoples attorney who I highly recommend. He is very professional, understanding, personable, efficient and reasonable. NJ law and most attorney's may not get you what you want but Aniello will get you what you need! He goes the extra mile to educate you and assist you in getting a fair shake in NJ especially when you feel blind slided by your ex-spouse. Aniello responds to all questions, emails, phone calls and on weekends too. He is considerate of your feelings and makes the journey a happy one in a difficult situation. As a male on the opposite side of the spectrum where at times the stereo type is that the female gets everything, well, I was glad I found Aniello. He did everything by the law and I was very pleased with the outcome. He is a true peoples attorney a real champion in the arena of divorce court.
