Life Changing
I just wanted to take the time to say thank you to Jonathan Petro and Lauren Conti for representing me and helping me through my first divorce. It's been a lifechanging experience (for the better). I really appreciated how professional they were, along with giving me their time, patience and any additional assistance when needed. I am so relieved that you both navigated me through this process and it's finally over. I'm sure you deal with lots of cases every day, but for my case - you helped me get my life back. I am so grateful. Thank you for everything.

Terrific experience
Jonathan's expertise and patience with my case were second to none. I was extremely impressed with his ability to break down complex divorce issues into layman's terms. He took care of my case with care and managed to calm most of my fears. I am grateful he was my attorney and I highly recommend him.

Attentive. Accomodating. Fair.
Jonathan was a wonderful attorney for me. He understood my goals to have a divorce that protected my teenage son financially, and was extremely accommodating at a time when I felt like my life had been turned completely upside down. He explained in detail how the law in New Jersey is applied, and gave me options that hadn't been presented to me by other attorneys I had met before him. Jonathan achieved the best possible outcome for me, and kept costs at a reasonable level. I HIGHLY recommend this attorney.

Very pleased with overall professional courtesy and responsiveness from staff.
I was recommended to this Law Firm as I was in need of someone who specialized in Family Law and who would be very knowledgeable overall. Mr. Petro was quick to understand my case and what end result I was looking for as a result of a quick, clean divorce. The staff and his assistant were outstanding and I so appreciate all of the calls, emails and mailings they provided throughout my case. He answered all of my questions and even spoke with my father as he was concerned and wanted clarification on several items that I was unable to answer. Jonathon took time to speak with him and myself and ensure we knew he was on the same page and if anything, already knew what next steps should be taken. I highly recommend Mr. Petro; he is smart, efficient, well dressed and knows the court system. He is well respected in the legal arena and I am very happy with my results.

Excellent
Jonathan did an excellent job with my real estate closing. He handled everything very professionally and explained everything to me in terms I could understand. He kept me well informed along every step of the process and I always felt that he truly was looking out for my best interest. Overall I was very pleased and will retain him again when I'm in need of a lawyer in the future.

Real Estate Closings With Ease
Jonathan has handled real estate closings for me and my wife, and we could not have been happier with his services. Mr. Petro is knowledgeable, forthcoming, and personable. He has a way about him that puts his clients at ease. Jonathan is always accessible, and his staff is extremely attentive to the needs of his clients. I would gladly recommend Mr. Petro for any legal need...whether it be Family Law, Real Property, or Estate Planning.

Thief. Took My Money. Literally Did Nothing
Retained him for services for an easy case where all parties were in agreement. Once I paid, I never heard from him. Useless office personnel kept giving me the run around. One free consult phone call and 2 answered emails and I received an invoice saying my retainer was almost gone. I called the court and found out my paperwork was never filed. I ended up doing all of the work myself, making all of the phone calls and setting up my own court date. What a crap law firm, with crap lawyers. If he was too busy to take the case, he should have passed it on to someone else. Do not use Carluccio, Leone, Dimon, Doyle, & Sacks.

worst attorney
He represented me in a way to milk me of money. I tookvevery legal document to the highest most prestigious firms and they all came to the same conclusion. He never went to law school, he was paid of, or he was milking me dry. He even didnt tell me when he recieved letters from my exs attorney which led me to break court orders. He is no barracuda, if you want to pay a lot for bad representation and lose your case then by all means hire him and his firm. The whole firm is filled with greedy, dirty lawyers.
