Amazing Attorney
Peter Banfe has been great from start to finish. He was very understanding of what I needed as well as extremely professional. He was very much on top of getting my legal issue resolved as quickly as possible. Peter was very honest and did exactly what he said he would. He is highly recommended.

5 STARS!!!
In dealing with my ugly divorce case, Pete was more than just an attorney representing me. Very understanding, patient, and always a relaxed atmosphere in his presence. I gained great respect for his knowledge and wisdom in helping me get a fair settlement. Pete walked me through each step of the process with great diligence and communication. I not only consider Pete a great attorney, but also a friend and would recommend him to anyone going through a horrible divorce. Thanks again Pete! 5 STARS!

Excellent attorney!
Peter Banfe is a leader in his field. He is honest, fair and has superb communication skills. His responsiveness was beyond expectation. When we initially consulted him, he suggested we attempt to settle "out of court and save a great deal of time and money" and even provided us great advice on how to accomplish this. We were a bit surprised at how open and honest he was. The attempts failed and we subsequently needed to retain him. We found him to be exceptionally bright, professional, diligent and efficient. In addition, I would be remiss not to mention his affable personality and wit. We felt a myriad of emotions during our process and Peter was understanding and compassionate. We knew early on in our relationship with Pete that no matter the outcome, we had the absolute best representation. We would not hesitate to use him in the future or recommend him to others.

Great man, even better attorney.
I was already being represented by a different attorney before I retained Pete, and I couldn't have been more satisfied. Mr. Banfe displayed intelligence, wit and that he was on top of his game during my divorce. He pointed out how much my previous attorney was just in a rush to settle instead of looking out for my best interest. He is patient, understanding and funny guy also. Aside from the attorney/client relationship he's also the kind of guy you could have a drink with. I would rehire for my future divorces.

Got me to the finish line!
Mr. Banfe represented me post Divorce to finalize paperwork that was left incomplete by another attorney. Mr. Banfe and his staff were professional and courteous every step of the way. He takes the time to listen and is always available and responsive. At a time when I was beyond frustrated Pete stepped up and worked on the problems and got the process moving along. My only regret is that I didn't hire Pete from the beginning of my divorce to represent me. If you want great representation and someone to stand up for you Pete is definitely the guy!

Knowledgeable, practical, patient
I retained Mr. Banfe's service for my divorce. From the beginning his advice was very helpful, and he was very patient with my questions. One of the qualities that I appreciated most was his ability to craft a legal letter that hit upon all of the items requested in a fast amount of billable time. I feel that he helped me obtain a result that was favorable to me and was very fair. He also made himself available and met the deadlines. After my divorce there were accounts that needed to be split and seemed to stall in the pandemic. I continued to use his legal help to move these processes along. In the end, everything resolved. I am grateful for the attention and focus that he gave to my case.

Excellence in his field
Met Pete Banfe almost 10 years ago, which should speak volumes. Continue to use his services to this day, when needed. Is always quick to respond whether it be by phone or email. I remember one particular instance when he was on vacation in Hawaii with his family and still found time to call me back and set my mind at ease over a custodial matter. Would not recommend anyone else. When you have the best, why look elsewhere.

Change in Jurisdiction
Mr. Banfe is a lawyer who will go above and beyond for his clients. He carefully does his research, asks all of the necessary questions, and gets the job done in a quick and efficient manner. I presented Mr. Banfe with a very hopeless, lengthy, and complex child custody case from South Carolina in August 2020 and asked that he represent me in having New Jersey claim jurisdiction. Mr. Banfe did the impossible and had jurisdiction changed in October 2020. I am forever grateful for his compassion, knowledge, and expertise as this has been life-changing for myself and my three and five year old boys. If you need legal representation and need someone with a fierce dedication to his clients then Mr. Banfe is exactly the lawyer for the job!!!

Client
I have been very please with Mr. Banfe's legal services. I would highly recommend him to family and friends who need advice and counsel regarding divorce. He know the laws and is fair. He is very organized, patient, and explains everything thoroughly. He reduced my stress that came along with the divorce process. He guided me from start to finish. His prices were fair. He is very responsive and communicates well over the phone, text, and through email. Very knowledgeable with court proceedings and Zoom hearings. I always felt prepared and was relieved he was on my side. He listens to your concerns and formulates documents well. He exceeded my expectations. I am a female who had a contentious divorce and would feel confident recommending him to any women finding herself in a divorce. If I had to do it over I'd choose him every time.

Divorcing a difficult ex can be stressful to say the least. Pete took the time to understand the complexities of my case in order to provide viable solutions and a successful outcome. With his calm demeanor, Pete will handle your matter with integrity, professionalism, and expertise. Highly recommend!!

Don't use ANYONE else - don't be a dummy!
If you're reading this - stop. Pick up the phone. Call Pete Banfe's office. You will not regret it. I hired Pete Banfe and it was among the best decisions I've ever made. I literally don't know where to start. Do I begin with his strategic take on reading between the lines and thinking 2-3 steps ahead so you don't say the wrong thing now and cause a problem later? How about his extreme responsiveness in getting back to you very quickly during highly emotional times? Or the patience to listen and carefully incorporate things important to you or to prioritize the items needed? Very understanding of the highly sensitive situations that divorce/custody entail and the ability to get the job done and get the right results....you get the idea. Stop reading. Call!

The best of the best !
During a very difficult and confusing time, Pete is there every step of the way. He is always available and responsive. Pete’s perseverance, knowledge, attention to detail and strategies give me the comfort of knowing that I have the right guy on my side. All I can can say is “Pete is the best of the best. “
Response from Peter Banfe February 17, 2020
I appreciate you taking the time to write such a thoughtful review and I thank you for your patience and perseverance as it was certainly a long road that probably seemed hopeless at times. I can't thank you enough for allowing me to help you get through this. It really was a team effort.

Simply the best
Pete has represented me for many years on some very complex post-judgment issues. I have always found Pete to provide very well balanced advice and counsel on matters related to child support, custody etc. He will advocate diligently for your best interest. Highly recommend!

Thank you. The confidence you've shown in me by continuing to allow me to represent you through the years is much appreciated and the greatest compliment you could give me. I always try to give you the pro's an cons as well as the costs and benefits of the various options at any given time. Thank you again for the recommendation.

Unbelievably awesome
Pete is beyond responsive, he listens well, he has outstandingly thorough thought process on strategy, he communicates effectively, well spoken and well written and very compassionate to the emotional nature of the situation and what people are going through. Cannot possibly recommend him enough.
Response from Peter Banfe February 17, 2020
Thank you for kind remarks. I always strive to be as responsive as possible as I know this is a very stressful experience to go through. If I can make that a little less stressful by communicating clearly about what is happening and timely, that's what I try to do. I'm pleased we were able to work together to accomplish the best possible result during such a difficult time. I wish you the best for the next chapter.

Knowledgeable, approachable and kind.
Pete Banfe was the best choice I could have made to guide me through my divorce. His ready knowledge about all matters that came up in writing my agreement was reassuring and saved time and stress. His even and kind demeanor made a difficult time much easier to navigate. I would recommend Mr Banfe to anyone who is facing issues that require a fair and effective family law expert.
