10 stars if they were available
Hired August to straighten out over a decade of Bad legal advice. This man didn't have to take me on based on my Financial situation and the many botched representation"s I have had since the beginning of my un- wanted divorce due to theft. I cant say enough about this Lawyer as far as integrity, knowledge and respect for the court. Fair honest and gets the truth as close as you can get to the courts doorstep for a just outcome...Cant recommend high enough....

Outstanding Lawyer!
I highly recommend August Landi's firm! August is extremely knowledgable, professional, but most importantly kind & compassionate. August always made me feel calm even in the most challenging situations. Divorce is one of the most difficult times in a person's life especially when there are children involved. It is critical that you believe that your counsel cares and is in your corner to protect your best interests, now and in the future. His wife and staff are also very professional and so nice! I have known August for over 10 years, not only was he my attorney but I now consider him a friend. Over the years I would occasionally visit his office just to say hello to he and his staff. He has a kind spirit and is a great lawyer! God Bless!

Strong child and family advocate
August is a fair-minded, kind, and compassionate lawyer who has children and family as his top priority. It was clear from our first meeting that he is working for good. Plain and simple. I received top-notch legal services at manageable prices. Thank you August for showing me that divorce does not have to be mean-spirited, and that divorce can have a good ending for all involved--especially the children. It is 18 mos since my divorce was finalized and all is well.

Competent, Efficient and Knowledgable
Having used a few attorneys in different NJ Counties I can say that August brings an extremely deep knowledge of the law. In Court proceedings I have had (2) Judge's specifically mention their respect for him. In later arbitration, our arbitrator again mentioned how fair August is. In my experience, his work ethic is unmatched. He takes the time to learn your case, provide honest advice and fight for you as his client.

I am forever grateful to this wonderful attorney
From my first meeting with August Landi he was unbelievable. For 4 years he handled my case with the utmost concern. Not only did he get my children back but he got full custody for me . August Landi is one of those people who does not stop fighting for what is right, through him I was able to get the child support that I needed for raising my two young boys. He is outstanding,professional, and overall an amazing attorney. I am forever grateful .

Outstanding Attorney and Individual
Legally Insightful, Diplomatic , and Compassionate are just a few of August Landi's outstanding attributes. His extensive experience as a family law attorney combined with his keen ability to seek an equitable solution for not only his client but the all parties in dispute makes him head & shoulders above his peers. He can be trusted to provide wise counsel to guide his clients on appropriate solutions for even the most difficult family divorcing dilemmas or debacles. Combined with his amiable nature, he can be counted on to be treat an individual honestly, fairly and with courtesy.

Trustworthy and competent Family Law attorney
Mr. Landi has represented my best friend in her divorce and represents my boyfriend in his custody case. He is moral, ethical and responsive in all his handlings. He is not an attorney who seeks money but justice. He is an advocate for children and equality for both parents. Mr. Landi has the experience and is well respected by his colleagues and judges. I would recommend Mr. Landi to handle any case in the Family Law Part.

Child Custody and Divorce
After all was lost, I was referred to Mr. Landi. First he gave me hope. Then he worked. Very hard. For little money. Maybe, just to right a terrible wrong. I just wish, I had him on my case from the very beginning. Mr. Landi, You are very helpful and I thank God there is someone like you to light hope in the dark and depressed lives of parents who lose children. You do so much for so many and their families. Your help reverberates through the families. I cannot thank you and your family enough to make your time and skills available for all of us.

I highly reccommend Mr. Landi because your case is as important to him as it is to you.

August Landi is a Lawyer with Integrity and a deep Knowledge of the Law
In my original divorce, I did not use Mr. Landi. The process was very costly and contentious. I was fortunate subsequently use Mr. Landi for custody issues post divorce. Mr. Landi will be blunt and fair but does so in order for you to realize the merits of working towards resolution. That reduces court costs and reduces the emotional component of battling every point. Mr Landi is Amazing! He cares about his client and is genuine and honorable - not something you say so endearingly when it comes to attorneys. I recommend him highly!!!!

Mr. August Landi Esq. - competant, efficient, compassionate
Mr. Landi Esq. is a very exceptional attorney. He is the kind of professional that from the moment you meet him you will recognize his integrity, honor, warmth and intelligence. In the very difficult and highly emotional field of Divorce and Family Law, Mr. Landi has the ability to sort out your matter and bring a comfortable resolution in a timely and most reasonable fashion. In cases that are highly agitated, he offers mediation between the parties in an effort to keep the dispute from being tied up in the courts and the overall cost down. He is sensitive to the fact that people going though divorce especially where children are involved need an advocate who can articulate their position with compassion, fairness and effectiveness. Mr. Landi has the type of experience in the court system that cuts through the red-tape and gets to the heart of the matter. In my experience, having gone through several attorneys and those who create more conflict between the parties than already exists, it was a relief have been so fortunate to locate Mr. Landi who restored my faith as he helped me through one of the most difficult, and heartbreaking events in any persons life. Mr. Landi restored mine and my daughters life and gave us back our dignity. He went beyond all my expectations and I was amazed at how he strategically laid out a plan that put us on the road to recovery which I am forever grateful for. You will especially appreciate that he sits down with you and writes his briefs and motions to the court with you, sentence by sentence and has an uncanny way to communicate your every thought as if he experienced what you had gone through first hand. Judges, colleagues and opposing attorneys work especially well with him and favor his keen insight towards amicable dispute resolution. Whether a forensic psychologist, or other professional that may be involved in your matter, you will find that they tend to favor his recommendations as his reputation is that of no other attorney I have ever met. Whether seeking a second opinion or to retain his services, Mr. Landi will provide you with dedicated, friendly, compassionate yet through representation.

The most conscientious and honorable attorney I have ever met
Mr. Landi is an exceptional attorney. His diligence is surpassed only by his vast knowledge of the law. He takes accountability for his client's causes; has been known to champion the most difficult situations and has a reputation for being fair and just. Mr. Landi is known by the judicial system as an honorable man of great character. His proposals, opinions and petitions are valued by the Jurist and Attorneys. I especially admire his drive for fighting the causes that are right and just. Mr. Landi’s impressive track record exemplifies his effectiveness and reputation in and out of the Court room.

A review of Mr. LAndi's work on my divorce
Mr. Landi was an excellent attorney who provided superb service as I was going through my divorce. He struck a balance as he acted in an assertive manner to make sure that my rights were protected, while keeping away from initiating any undue actions. Throughout my time with Mr. LAndi, he always conducted himself in a professional and knowledgeable manner. In addition, Mr. Landi's staff also conducted themselves in an exemplary manner. I would recommend Mr. Landi's services to anyone, including members of my family.

Terrible Representation, no motions just emails to the other atty
3 Years with August Landi was continuous anxiety, filed just one motion and the rest were email and letters to the other side... Landi continues cancel 90% of the appointment with excuses. Billing was a Joke with no description of time, dates or clarification of what was talk or work on... Cheap in this case is expensive... I will never recommend this atty to anyone

Did nothing for me
Beware of this so called attorney...He feigned interest in my divorce case but demanded payment with every pen stroke...He never consulted me was never around when the judge was looking for him and the day of my divorce fumbled around for papers...I ended up answering the judges questions by myself...He should have retired a long time ago...Needless to say I did poorly on my alimony with the wealth of documents I presented to him...He never read them...Beware if you come across him...
