Curt did an eleven-year post judgment motion for me that ended in a multi-day trial where the judge flip-flopped the custody arrangement where I now have sole custody of our son and his mother has every other weekend. Curt’s a hell of a trial lawyer right out of a Grisham novel. Just one example of his cross examination. My ex kept what she called a real-time diary. The entries were almost exclusively off-beat times. Curt asked her, “Did you not round up any of these time entries to make them appear more precise or authentic?” She would write down 10:14AM instead of 10:15AM for example. The judge took great note of this. Curt asked if she always has her watch on. She said yes. He asked her what time it was now and she said that she couldn’t tell because her vision was blurry because she had lost her glasses. About a half hour later in the testimony, Curt showed her an email she had written in 6 point fonts. The email was self-serving and Curt asked her to read it into the record, which she gladly did. Curt asked the judge to move the email into evidence for the sole purpose of proving that she lied about her vision, which he did. She had no credibility whatsoever when Curt was done with her, and the judge made reference to it in his decision.

We’ve had a professional relationship for some time. My ex is a dog with a bone and has gone through a legion of attorneys. I will never stop coming back to Curt. He’s a winner. He told me he absolutely detests losing and never did for me.

I never married my daughter’s mother. I bought a house when it looked like we would be married. Her name was on it since I had credit problems and she didn’t. Mid-trial, Mr. Romanowski made a motion, based on his theory that ours was not a partitioning action (that’s how it started out). The judge was very interested and asked both sides to submit briefs on topic. The judge was impressed with his brief and decided that the home was mine alone. He’s extremely bright and sees angles you would never think of.

Curt represented me in a domestic violence trial against my husband. My now ex is a politician and lawyer who thinks he can get over on everybody. Curt told me not to worry because my ex would never be able to keep track of how all his lies have to agree with one another. My ex started off really smug. Things changed when he couldn’t answer questions because Curt got him entangled in all his prior false testimony. The judge reported him to the bar and ordered that he pay $30,000 to Curt.

My wife, our child and I are all citizens of Brussels. My ex is quite evil and ruthless. She was making DCPP complaints (6 of them) and domestic violence complaints against me over a period of several years. I had a divorce pending in Brussels at the time, but the NJ court took jurisdiction because our child was living here. During Mr. Romanowski’s cross examination of my wife (she demanded a French interpreter, even though she speaks
perfect English) he tripped her up so many times I stopped counting. He told me he made a science of asking open ended why questions they tell you never to ask at law school. He
said if someone’s a big liar, they tend to hang themselves answering these why questions. Did she ever. When the judge summed up at the end he made specific note of Mr. Romanowski’s cross examination and found that she had no credibility whatsoever. Nice work.

Curt did several mandatory mediations for us. The lawyers were getting us nowhere and the bills were escalating with no end in sight. After just one session as a court-appointed mediator, Curt informed both attorneys that he had the authority to work with the clients without the lawyers there. When he worked with us individually, he settled the case and we both felt good about him and the fairness of the result.

English is not my first language or even second. He represented me in a domestic violence case against my ex-husband. I made comments to the 911 operator that sounded inconsistent with what actually occurred. He has some background with how people think and talk and immediately asked me if, when speaking English I had to translate into my native language, understand it, put together a reply, then translate it into English. I had to think about that for a bit but realized he was exactly the case. I am still not so good in that department but had help writing this post. He cleared everything up for me.

Mr. Romanowski (and he would always say that was his dad’s name and to call him Curt) has both feet on the ground. Everyone respects him. He’s down to earth, caring and easily brilliant. Hire him.

When I came into his office, it was crowded with books and newspaper articles he wrote. He was on the phone with a judge and his assistant apologized for the delay and I actually had time to read a few of his articles. One of them was right on with my situation. I expected a nerd to come out because the articles sounded like they were written by a college professor. Curt came out in an aloha shirt and cargo shorts and we hit it off immediately. I felt like I was sharing my stuff with a close friend and not someone with his academic credentials. It ended up getting tried, despite the fact that I offered reasonable settlement terms. Every single objection against us was overruled and every objection Curt made was sustained. One of the articles I read was on trial evidence. Clearly, he knows his stuff. Got what I needed to get.

He lightened up my awful situation, but in a really good way. He’s been divorced himself, which I think was a great asset since he’s been through it. He told me he wasn’t a divorce lawyer at the time… better yet because he had a human perspective. He told me it would probably take 9-12 months to wrap things up. My wife hired a lawyer that he said was at his level and things got settled by me in about 4 months. That was super.
