Carly Steinberg is terrific
I worked with Carly on several matrimonial cases and she was terrific; a great communicator who offered thoughtful, reasoned advice. I would strongly recommend her.

Great lawyer
Has helped me when i needed it most. Goes out of her way to listen to the facts before giving advice. The one time she didn't have an answer for me she told me she would research it. Sure enough the next day she explained what my chances were.

Patient, Professional and Knowledgable
During my divorce I was able to count on my attorney, Ms. Carly Steinberg. She is patient, professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy. With her legal advice I was able to move on with my life and know that I had the best representation.

Awesome, trustworthy and understanding
During a stressful time it is great to have a professional, knowledgeable attorney. Ms. Steinberg was compassionate during this time and kept me informed of all my options as well as my legal rights. If I had a question or was confused about anything, she always made sure to clarify and explain it to me. Thank you Ms. Steinberg I would highly recommend you.

Excellent Attorney
I had the pleasure of working with Carly and I was left very impressed with her in depth knowledge of family and divorce law related issues, and her commitment to achieve the best results for her clients. She is indeed an excellent attorney that I would recommend to anyone.

Dream Team
I had a very difficult time with my divorce and was totally lost. I was an emotional wreck and Carly exceed all my expectations as my lawyer by not only defending me but also helping me pull it together every time I felt I was losing the battle. She made me feel comfortable and part of a team. She was easy to work with and I have recommended her to all my friends. Carly is a fighter, a fighter for justice for her clients. I could not have made it through this episode in my life if it weren't for her and Peter Cedeno’s team; they are all very professional, but with a heart. I have moved on with my life and have pulled it all together with Carly’s help. She is very knowledgeable and I’m very happy that I chose her and Peter and had them in my corner to defend me in this divorce. Thank you!

A true angel indeed.
I am a current client - I already had a divorce case settled prior with a different lawyer before meeting Carly, a member of Peter Cedeno's team with matters left unfortunately totally confused, paperwork left unclear with no sense of direction. As she is part of Peter's team, she was always available to provide opened guidance and profound understanding step by step, on how my prior legal situation should have been resolved. No questions were left unanswered - and I say, I did ask a LOT of questions. After going through a some personal rough patches on the agreement against my ex-spouse and rounds of legal counseling with Carly and the team, I am finally confident they will take charge in my making sure all matters are handled as such accordingly and fair for my new child support and custody case. Definitely, a true angel to have in your corner.

Knowledgeable, professional, and responsive.
For what has been, and continues to be, the most difficult time in my life, Ms. Steinberg has been a beacon of reason and reliable guidance. She does not shy from making me think of something in another way, nor from defending my rights. I am comforted knowing she is on top of my case and sitting beside me in the courtroom.
