SAVED MY LIFE
If it weren’t for Nanette, I can honestly say I would not be alive to tell my story right now. I had no knowledge about the evil I was dealing with. The support and advocacy, provided by Nanette, has helped me greatly- Not only by “keeping me alive” but also understanding the real magnitude of DANGER I was in - (Criminal, Civil, Family court). What I lived through was not easy, every dark element of hell was very strategically laid out by my abuser to bring me to my doom. As soon as I called Nanette, both her and her husband assessed how dangerous my situation was and immediately set up a game plan to keep me safe from my abuser and work on all necessary actions needed to file in court while navigating some really dark, crazy situations. Being part of a minority class, where religion leaves women with little to no rights, I honestly lost all hope and thought there was no help for me. I was in rock bottom, in complete “shock”, to even understand the complete gravity of the danger I was in or what was real any more. I cannot emphasize how thankful I am, for the support and the advocacy provided by Nanette & her husband. For Any WOMEN out there, who is suffering & feels there is no out- I encourage you to reach out, you won’t be disappointment, specially not with Nanette’s team. I admire her dedication, patience and support during the darkest period of my life, and am forever thankful and grateful to her for keeping me safe and being my justice in this country I am so grateful for your passion, dedication, and professionalism. you are truly the best.

Excellent experience
Nanette was of course professional but exceptionally astute in navigating the emotions associated with these complicated cases. She was in constant communication, always made herself available day or night and was the calm in the storm. Our positive, desired outcome was achieved due to her strategic guidance.

Change of custody
Nannette came highly recommended to me. I went for a consultation and discussed what I was looking for. I retained her and through the entire process she was readily accessible to me, addressed any and all concerns I had as they came up. She was always on time for court appearances, very meticulous about any paperwork or motions that needed to be filed with the court (even when opposing council insisted it wasn’t necessary) In the end she got me everything I said I was looking to get ... and then some.

Very knowledgeable attorney
Ms. Buoneto was the attorney that I hired to help me with my out of state child custody case. She was very knowledgeable and dedicated to my case. Her sincere interest in my case was a welcomed change from previous attorneys. She was always available to answer my phone calls. I would highly recommend Ms. Buoneto for anyone who needs excellent, genuine representation.

Dedicated, committed and above all, caring
Nanette was absolutely great in every facet representing me. She went above and beyond, always made herself available for any questions, issues, advice etc. I truly was impressed her intelligence and with the amount of dedication she put forward in her work and how much of a pleasurable person she is. Above all else she was caring and really had my best interests in consideration when dealing with the tough issues throughout my case. I can't say enough good things about her and would be happy to have her represent myself or anyone I knew because I know we would be in good hands.

An attorney who isn't afraid of justice
Nanette Buoneto was my angel on heaven, she fought zealously and intelligently on my case. In court she was AMAZING she knew exactly what to do and got me a great settlement on my case. Without Ms. Buoneto I would have lost all my life savings, and the little bit of hope that I had left. If you want an attorney who will represent you tooth and nail then she is the attorney you need to hire! Attorney Buoneto and her husband Steve have represented many members of my family and it is always a positive outcome, we are highly satisfied, and we highly recommend there services.

Incredibly Knowledgable and Passionate about her clients
Nanette is by far the most impressive Family Law attorneys I have met. I have consulted with several over the years, however none of them can hold a candle to her professionalism fused with care for her clients to result in the best possible outcome. I can not praise her enough - you simply can not go wrong with retaining her firm.

An amazingly intelligent attorney on many aspects of the law, there should be a ten star option because five is not enough.
Nanette Ida Buoneto represented me in a relocation case so I could leave the state with my son while working out a reasonable schedule of visitation for his father. She put in many hours between discussing case with me and my ex-husband's attorney and because of her extensive knowledge and I believe, her professional and friendly affect, we were able to come to an agreement that factored in everyone's wishes and my ex husband and I left the court happy with our agreement, still on friendly and amicable terms. She is not an attorney to fuel any animosity between parties involved, which saves a lot of time, money and limits the stress for all involved. Instead she will help reduce her clients stress and anxiety by taking the time to explain the legal terminology and your options in a calm demeanor that makes you realize you can put your trust in her since she is highly intelligent and educated & genuinely cares about case outcomes, not bc it is a victory for her but bc she cares about her clients. She also has the foresight to think about things you haven't even thought of, things that can affect the present and future. Nobody enjoys family court, even when parties are amicable, and I hope to never need to go back there but if I do there is no doubt it is Nanette I would want by my side. I will forever recommend her to anyone dealing with a family law matter.

Professional, personable, sharp, empathetic
My child visitation and custody case was very unique from the beginning. I live in CA, was summoned to court in NY, my child's father had been incarcerated for most of my son's life. This was not an easy case to take on, but Ms Buoneto - licensed in both NY and CA - fearlessly delved in to understand the full circumstance with the utmost professional, nonjudgmental, and empathetic manner. I felt like I had a true friend in NY going to bat for me in court. Ms Buoneto won the case for CA being the more convenient forum to hear the visitation case, and later helped me win full custody in CA with guidance from a CA colleague of hers. When my child's father petitioned for an appeal of jurisdiction, she helped negotiate the withdrawal of the appeal. Ms Buoneto is sharp, personable, and always available to discuss the case and her fees. I highly recommend Ms Buoneto!

Review my lawyer
Hired Nanette Buoneto to get my divorce papers that were not computerized in California. She answered my questions in a timely matter, always pleasant and gets results quickly. Not only is she licensed in New York but California as well. I think her services are great. Sincerely, Marilyn Mackie

Nanette Buoneto is awesome!
I first meet Nanette 15 minutes before my hearing, my firm asked her to assist when they couldnt make the appearence. I gave her a summary of my defense and she asked me a few questions before she went in and WON! I was - still am amazed! She is very professional, direct, in control and to the point. I felt guided & cared for. To not even know me, or anything about my case and be able to argue and win against a high paid well prepared lawyer who's been working on their case for months. Impressive. I would highly recommend Nanette & as you can imagine I left me old firm and signed with her and her husband Steve Metcalf immediately. They make a great team honest caring and diligent.
