John, is an excellent lawyer who knows the law inside and out. He is one of my go to attorneys when I have a question on any procedural matter.

Mr Smargiassi (of Joseph and Smargiassi) handled my divorce. I was always very happy with the way the firm behaved and I continue to respect both John and Mario for their hard work. I usually become suspicious when references are over-glowing but in this case they are deserved. As a professional, working in investment banking, I am used to dealing with Talented people and am not easily impressed but both John and his partner Mario impressed me. They were recommended to me personally and I have had no regrets with my choice of representation. Frankly I would have been happy to have included my name or email for a recommendation but the site prohibits it. However I am sure that if you ask the firm if this review is genuine they will recognize the, shall we say, British, writing style, and confirm that it is very likely a client of theirs that wrote it. I am not a mule, an employee of the company or a friend with an axe to grind. I really did go through a nightmare of a divorce and I was grateful for the work of the firm in a very hard time in my life.

Many divorce attorneys are fireworks, Mr. Smargiassi is calm, focused, and knowledgeable. Mr. Smargiassi (with his partner Mr. Joseph) took over my divorce case, which was stalled and I was unaware of the consequences my prior attorney had left me. Mr. Smargiassi has a geek streak in him: very technical on law and procedure. However, it's that geek streak that I learned to count upon: it's the really smart arguments that get heard by the judges. Mr. Smargiassi helped write a successful appeal in my case ... not too many divorce attorneys with those kind of chops.
Lastly, on a personal level: he understands parenting and people: he's a great coach on finessing many aspects of co-parenting that help your children, and help you. Absolutely, I would seriously listen to any advice he gave on any aspect of divorce and family.

I wholeheartedly endorse John Smargiassi as a lawyer who takes his responsibilities to his clients most seriously. I cannot think of an attorney who works harder for his clients than John. Whether it's a matrimonial case or a business related litigation, John is always on top of the facts and law involved in his case.
