If you want the best - search no further!
Andrew Economos is definitely one of the best lawyers I know! My brother recommended him after doing thorough research and interviewing other lawyers for me. It was probably the most intelligent decision I made in my post divorce life. Andrew Economos resolved many issues for me and my family and I am proud to have such a realistic, loyal and professional advocate on my team.

Dedication to his clients and wide range of knowledge for the law
Mr. Economos demonstrated to me a wide range of knowledge entwined with his dedication and the ability to comprehend & fulfill his client’s needs by always keeping their best interest in mind. His high regard for the law and ethics surpassed my expectations and set him apart from his peers. I always felt safe and in good hands knowing at the end of the day there would be a fair and just outcome. At times when things seemed bleak he had a great attitude no matter what the circumstances. He would listen, plan, even consult with others if need be and always come back with a winning strategy. He would meet challenges head on and was always one step ahead by being prepared for the unexpected circumstance that may arise. He walked me through the whole process of my divorce, advising me, being responsive through phone calls, e-mails, and showing concern which left me with a very positive lasting experience. I would definitely recommend him to my friends as without his diligence, and persistence, I would have lost all my assets. Kudos to you Mr. Economos!

Child Support
I would highly recommend Andy Economos. I have consulted him to help me with a highly sensitive family law issue, and he provided the best service I could have asked for. He is extremely intelligent, and knew exactly how to handle our case to get us the best results possible. His aggressiveness and knowledge of the law helped me to achieve the settlement I desired. He shows genuine concern for his client's positions and does not have any preconceived strategy/response. I would highly recommend him for any family law issue .

Final Restraining Order
Andy proved to be an amazing attorney. He understood the case and proceeded accordingly while constantly staying in touch throughout. He showed great professionalism, honesty, and hands on experience. I had a pleasure working with Andy and I highly recommend him for any matters, particularly related to TRO/FRO cases and hearings. Andy presented all the relevant materials and explained the whole case to honorable court with confidence and amazing knowledge. I wish Andy the best of luck in his future endeavors! Thanks, Andy.

Top Notch!
What can I say, I hired an attorney and ended up with a friend. I hired Andy to help me fight against false domestic violence allegations, and not only did his tenacious advocacy convince my ex to dismiss her false claims against me, but she was even forced to chip in for some of my legal fees! This was more than a year ago and Andy still checks in on me just to say hi and see how I’m doing. I wish I could give more than 5 stars!

the Importance of Professional Pride
Knowing that equitable distribution is hardly a straightforward matter, I was looking for two things in my divorce attorney: expertise and professional pride. Unfortunately, the second was harder to find. For instance, in an initial meeting, I asked one lawyer if it were possible that I might spend several thousand in legal fees and end up with nothing. She acknowledged that might very well happen and seemed completely unbothered by it (as though such an outcome would be completely acceptable to her). This attitude was, of course, completely unacceptable to me. I did not get this sense with Andrew Economos and, more than his legal expertise, this is what ultimately made me choose him. As it turns out, my intuition was correct: the Early Settlement Panel ended up making a suggestion that was strongly in the other party’s favor. He was obviously angry, as though he found such a recommendation personally unacceptable. He insisted that he wouldn’t let me walk away with less money than I had spent on legal fees, so he spoke with the judge further. To make a long story short, he eventually secured a compromise that I believe was fair to both parties; unfortunately, the other side was extremely stubborn in the process and ran up legal fees on both sides by continually rejecting offers. At the end of the day, I didn’t end up with a considerable amount after the legal fees, but this was the other party’s fault, not Mr. Economos’. It is always very expensive to use a divorce attorney – particularly, if as in my case, there isn’t much money to be split—but if you’re going to use one, then I would strongly recommend Mr. Economos. He takes pride in his work and won’t accept anything less than in your best interest.

Representation by Andrew Economos on May 13th, 2015
Andy has been representing me for matrimonial court matters for the past three years. He has had to handle custody, visitation, moving and financial issues and he has handled them splendidly and with great professionalism. Andy was successful on May 13th in keeping my kids in their school, allowing them to go to the summer camp that I sought for them to attend and to continue to have 50/50 parenting time. Andy is very on top of things and he really gets to know your case. I dare say he knows my case almost as well as I do! He is also an excellent litigator, zealously representing my interests while still being respectful to the adversary and the judge. I would strongly recommend Andy to my friends and acquaintances in need of a matrimonial attorney.

Termination of Alimony
Mr. Economos is very professional and complete in his work. His involvement takes on a "Personal" interest not only during the present, but with concern for the future outcome. I must indicate he is very attentive to details, listened to my ideas and requests but also offered his expertise with regard to the present law regarding my case. Very knowledgeable and precise in his presentations and written documents.

Highly recommended
I would highly recommend Andy Economos. We used him to help us with a highly sensitive family law issue, and he provided the best service we could have asked for. He is extremely intelligent, and knew exactly how to handle our case to get us the best results possible. His aggressiveness and knowledge of the law helped us to achieve the settlement we desired. I have been a legal secretary for the past 15+ years, and I have dealt with many family law attorneys over the years. I sincerely believe Andy is among the best.

Excellent attorney
Andy is a wonderful attorney to work with. He made the extremely long process of divorce/child support easy to deal with. He is always available by phone or email. I highly recommend him.

HONEST ATTORNEY
Andy is a phenomenal attorney. He is extremely responsive to telephone calls and emails and went out of his way to keep me updated on my case. He is driven by what is in his client's best interest, as opposed to running up large, unnecessary bills. He also understands, especially in divorce litigation, that it is best to keep a level head. However, when the situation calls for it, his aggressiveness and "bulldog attitude" are second to none. It was also clear during my many experiences at the court house with him, that he has the admiration and respect of the judges and his other attorney colleagues. Andy certainly changed my perception of attorneys… in a very positive way. There is no doubt that I will be sending all of my family, friends, and colleagues to Andy should they need any guidance in the area of family law. I know that they will receive the same positive experience and outstanding results that I did.

Excellent Attorney!!!!
Mr. Economos was an outstanding attorney. Have known him for over 1 year. I felt he gave me top representation while both in court and out of court. He is very knowledgeable and professional. Would highly recommend him.

FANTASTIC!
Andrew is able to keep on top of my case, listens to what I'm saying, and actively takes into account all the information. He's proactive about formulating strategy, yet keeps you calm so that you're own aggravation over situations doesn't become your own costly mistake. He's also a top notch attorney in defense of your rights, and was able to get false accusations against me dismissed summarily and expediently. He consistently keeps me informed, tries to work strategy to the best results possible, and is candid about what the results may be. Thanks to his extraordinary work, I've been able to keep my wits about me through the divorce process.

Recent Review - Andrew J. Economos
I would like to author a review to express my satisfaction with the professional services as provided by Andrew J. Economos, Esq., both throughout the entire process in relation to my post-divorce issues, as well as the recent court hearing itself. In relation to my recent post-divorce issue, commencing with the initial meeting this past summer, the communications and preparations since then, and culminating with the actual hearing, Mr. Economos, as in his services previously provided to me a few years ago, was always assessable, always inclined an ear to listen to my version of the story, clearly knew the law and all of its positive and negative implications, as well as always made me feel at ease in conversation. During the hearing itself, it was very clear who "had my back..." in the courtroom that day, continually informing the Judge what was in the fair and best interest for his client, and in relation to the defendant's attorney, was clearly on "top of his legal game" in countering point-for-point any statements made. In short, it was clear Mr. Economos thoroughly did his homework. In addition, all of the above was complimented to the utmost by Mr. Economos' usual professional demeanor. In closing, Mr. Economos is absolutely an asset to his firm and a credit to his profession. As previously stated a few years ago, there is no doubt who I would turn to in the event of any future legal issues.

Andrew Economos
I cannot say enough about Mr. Economos! I have never felt so informed as I did with Mr. Economos, he made me feel very comfortable. He has class when dealing with the the adversary. Mr. Economos took full control of my situation in court. He stipulated what he wanted to accomplish and that is exactly what happened in court. I was amazed at how knowledgeable Mr. Economos was and was quite impressed when he dealt with a seasoned lawyer. I will highly recommend him to everyone I know. I cannot thank him enough!!

Divorce Settlement
From the first moment I walked into the offices of Dughi Hewit I felt that I was in excellent hands. Everyone from the support staff to Mr.Garreri and especially Andy Economos was welcoming, down to earth and solution oriented regarding not only the particulars of my case but also with being careful not to enter into un-necssary and costly actions.
