Very happy with John's team
I have had experience with other family law attorneys, but I can say that John's firm is the best of the bunch. I felt I was getting a whole team to help me. I felt that I was not just a person to bill, but a real person who they cared about. I strongly recommend John and his firm to anyone that needs help.

I should have gone to him first!
I consulted with John initially, and thought I couldn’t afford him. To my dismay, I retained another lawyer who was decent but didn’t safeguard issues the way John had outlined in our initial consultation. Unfortunately, due to lack of prevention in my initial trial proceedings, another motion was filed against me, and I then retained his services. I spent over $10k from not utilizing his advice and suggestions. I could have spent less than half of that, if I would have retained him the first time. I cannot promise you that he can save the world; but he will advise you appropriately. He will not let you indulge in the abyss of desire that will never come to fruition. He and his associate, Tom, were up front and honest about what to expect and predict. I’m pleased with his practice and services. He’s reasonable and down to earth. If you need answers to simple questions, subscribe to his YouTube Channel or newsletter. I learned the best way to save money, is to go to him prepared with your documents organized. He’ll handle the rest.

Highly recommend
I would highly recommend this law firm. John and Tom went above and beyond to assure that my voice was heard but more importantly they made me feel safe during my entire court proceedings with my ex-husband. That is priceless. For the first time in 30 years they gave me the courage to stand up to my ex. I am extremely happy with the outcome of my case and highly recommend them.

Couldn't Have Asked for a Better Attorney!
John has become my trusted advisor guiding me through some of the most difficult marital and child custody issues. He listens carefully, provides helpful recommendations, and follows through on everything discussed. John is very conscientious and on multiple occasions has gone out of his way to do exactly what was needed and not over bill me. I am very grateful to have found him and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Excellent!
John helped me with my divorce case for a year with a very difficult adversary. But finally he was able to get me a settlement. He is smart, innovative, hard working, well prepared, calm and great lawyer. I was always confident on his legal advise and he guided me well through the process. He always works in optimized way to keep monthly legal bills in check and I never had issues or complains with his legal bills. Everyone at his office is great as well. I would definitely recommend John as a divorce Lawyer.

Excellent Lawyer
Nothing is more frightening and frustrating than being involved in a legal transaction unless your attorney is patient, understanding and compassionate. I hired John to represent me in my divorce. He was thorough and did a great job of dealing with my wife’s attorney. He handled some complicated financial agreements between us. I Highly recommend John!

Excellent attorney
John represented me in a divorce and was my second attorney. Before he took over my case, my case had gone on for over a year and had cost me more money than I want to think about. Within a month of taking over my case, he had negotiated a partial settlement and got my case on track to be resolved. He is a problem solver and I did not think billed excessively (particularly compared to my first attorney). John is a good guy and a pleasure to talk to. I really am blessed to have found him and had him get me out of my marriage. I highly recommend him and his entire office.

Divorce
Divorce is scary and at times very confusing, and John was so patient with me every step of the way. I always felt like I was important and he always took the time to educate me on my decisions. I highly recommend John & Christina, they are a great team who are down to earth, personable and reasonable.

Amazing attorney and staff
John helped me through my very difficult divorce. He and his staff took the time to help me understand the process and to make informed decisions. When negotiations with my ex got tough, John worked tirelessly to help resolve the issues; even after hours. I knew going into this that a contentious divorce would not be cheap but John was a very effective advocate for me. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends.

Highly recommend
I just finished a very long divorce and custody fight with my ex. John was with my every step of the way. I thought he was patient with me and helped me get a great result for me and my children. He really cared about my kids, which was really what I needed. Divorce is not cheap, but I really feel I got my money's worth with this guy. I highly recommend him and his firm.

Dream Team!!
John and Christina are the absolute Dream Team! They handled my defense in a case my ex brought against me for cohabitation. The case included Private Investigator evidence and 3 witnesses, all of which were there to testify against me. John and Christina were outstanding. One by one picking apart the witnesses and making the Private Investigators look foolish by asking questions that proved they had not done their case, could not remember facts they should know, and showed they did not provide any evidence of cohabitation. Their whole preparation in advance of the case proved they knew how to pick apart each accusation, make witnesses discredit themselves by changing their stories, and get virtually all of the Private investigators evidence thrown out! By far the best experience in what looked like the most challenging case going in. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I'd give 100 stars if I could.

Great Lawyer!
John is a very caring, calming and thoughtful lawyer. In my divorce case his patience helped me stay grounded. His guidance in separating matters of the law versus emotions helped me through the tedious and sad process of legally ending a 28 year marriage. His legal advice kept me sound and solvent. And to both my and his surprise, John advised me through the remarriage process! Yes, my ex and I remarried five years later. A prenuptial agreement was an absolute and although he primarily represented me, my husband would say that he helped us both through the prenuptial process.

Excellent Service
John was extremely helpful, and made what is an extremely difficult process very smooth. He provided an excellent service and I would highly recommend. He was always responsive and communicated with me constantly, even when there was nothing new to report, which helped to keep my mind at ease. He was extremely knowledgeable in all areas, and was able to answer all questions.

LOVE THIS GUY
John is an excellent attorney. He and his entire staff are first class. Although I don't plan to go through another divorce, I would not hesitate to use him again if I do.

The Best Lawyer
John Handled my case with 100 percent effort. He advised me all the way in making the proper choices. He was ver personable as well as always returning my calls in a timley fashion. I highly recommand this attorney.
Posted by Maurice | March 13, 2013
Super attorney!
John represented me with great care. I cannot say how happy I have been with him and his staff. His bills have been reasonably and while I was not thrilled with the settlement, he always explained and pros and cons of the decisions I was making. I always felt that he cared about me. Everyone I know will get his card. I am particularly happy that he has started his own firm. Although he was the primary attorney at his old firm, I am glad he is getting the credit he deserves for his talents as owner of his own firm. You cannot go wrong with John. I am proud to not only call him my attorney, but my friend. I highly recommend him!

Wonderful
John took over my case when things were not going too great. He reassured me and did a great job. Despite my deceitful now ex-husband and his horrible attorney, John negotiated exactly the settlement I wanted and was always responsive to my needs, even when I was annoying him. While he is my first divorce attorney to deal with, I cannot imagine many others are as wonderful as John, particularly his glowing personality and attention to his clients' emotions. Trust me, everyone I know will know that he is the best divorce attorney around.

Great family attorney
I absolutely recommend John. He was very supportive of me during my divorce and, as I learned later, billed me MUCH less than my ex-husband's attorney did him. Anyone I know who needs the services of a family attorney will be sent John's way. I cannot say enough positive things about him and his entire firm. His secretaries are both sweet people who always spent time with me, even when I was being annoying.

Great attorney
When I called an attorney, I did not know what to expect. Divorce is scary and I called so many attorneys. When I first spoke with John, he immediately made me feel better. Him and his firm were wonderful in helping me through my divorce. They always were available to answer questions and John was very sensitive to what I was going through. I feel as through I got first class representation for a very reasonable price. I cannot recommend John and Romanowski Law Offices enough.

Excellent lawyer
I was very impressed by John and Romanowski Law Offices. I felt that my case was important to them and I wasn't just another client. John reached a settlement with my ex-husband and his attorney that was exactly what I wanted. I always knew the pros and cons of everything that he did. I did have to wait sometimes a day for a return call, but I know that lawyers are busy and if I told someone that it was urgent, I received a return call immediately. I highly recommend John and his firm and will absolutely use them in the future.
