Mission accomplished
I was referred to the law firm of Liou & Maisonet coincidentally while seeking real estate advice from a realtor. Which until today I strongly believe it was the will of God that guided me to that law firm, which not only fought fairly for the well fare of my children & I, but also embraced/reassured, encouraged & motivated me throughout my stressful divorce process. From the first day I spoke to Mr Maisonet over the phone we connected spiritually & I perceived him as more than just being my lawyer. Mr Maisonet is very professional, passionate about his work, very educated/resourceful, calm/patient & above all treated me like family. My divorce process had many dark terrors, but Mr Maisonet was fully equipped to overcome them all triumphantly. I’m extremely happy about my divorce outcome & highly recommend Mr Maisonet to everyone that’s seeking an excellent lawyer.

Highly recommended
Dimitri worked with me for four years until my divorce was finalized. He took the time to really understand my situation and was generally available for phone calls and emails. He also gave me great advice, even when it was advice I didn't want to hear. He really understands the system and knows how to navigate it to gain the best advantage for his clients.

Honest guy! Would trust him with my life!
Got into a situation and was trying to find a attorney asap. Spoke to quite a few and many of the attorneys sounded like they did not care or wanted payment before they even answer a single question! Mr. Dimitri was VERY honest and easy to talk to! Answered my questions without ever asking for a dime and helped me feel like there are still attorneys left who really fight for justice!! Trust me! Mr. Dimitri is very well educated and experienced! Hiring him will be the best decision!

Job well done
I am very satisfied with my lawyer Dimitri Maisonet he and his firm Liou & Masionet went far beyond what I had expected. I was always well informed of my case by my attorney if there was something I didn't know or wasn't quite clear of the situation I was explained in a manner that I understood and eased my mind. If I am asked by anyone about legal representation I will recommend Dimitri and his firm to handle their case as I was directed to them by a friend.

Review for Lou and Maisonet Law Firm
Dimitri and Leta helped me in my divorce case. I was very impressed with their knowledge, service, and support throughout and even after completion of the process. They are quite accessible compared to some other lawyers that I have worked with. They did their homework very well and provided excellent advice on all relevant matters. An area to look into is follow up communication. On occasions I felt the communication regarding the status/requirments etc. to me could have been better, but not a major issue. Thanks Leta and Dimitri!!

Glad I came across Attorney Maisonet.
Attorney Maisonet was professional and thorough. I had missed a court date and subsequently got an unfavorable court order. I was freaking out to say the least. Atty. Maisonet got right on it and got the order vacated, which I have read and heard is rare. After that we went back to court and needless to say the new order is fair and reasonable. He set forth a good strategy and it worked. I would use him again and highly recommend his services. David

Unmatched Professionalism
Dimitri provided an invaluable service to me when I was going through my divorce. He was calm and represented my best interests before we proceeded to court...during the court process and afterwards. I got the end result that I was looking for and I owe it all to Dimitri. I would recommend Dimitri in a heartbeat.

Highly Recomended
Great lawyer, very loyal and dedicated to his work. Mr Maisonet processed my divorce in 2010 and represented me in 3 hearings ( child support, relocation and order of protection) for 18months. He took time to explain all legal matters to me. He very articulate at his work. I came to a victory with all 3 cases. He is an amazing lawyer. I highly recomend him.

Search Family Court Law on Google get the info you want!Then see Dimitri and get the representation you need! That Simple!
Yes its true today's world you think you can self educate yourself via the internet whether its your first time dealing with a legal issue or not know your rights,treat this as if your going into surgery, you want the best outcome eventhough its painful!i I have represented myself 3 times prior throughout my life, not only was I well informed I felt more confident entering the court room with Mr.Maisonet.Dimitri was refferred to me by a co-worker who also had been going through a similiar Family court issue as myself. His high regard for his lawyer/client expierence only made me ask myself Why not? What do I have to loose? From day 1 consultation I was happy with my decision to see Dimtri, his professionalism and compassion made me reassured i was getting the best representation.My only regret was that i didnt retain him sooner in this part of my life but Im more confident that i will have him in my corner if ever needed.So in short yes I will highly recommend the LIou/Maisonet Firm

Excellent Attorney!
Mr. Maisonet represented me in a family court matter. He made a very difficult situation tolerable by taking the time to explain the legal process to me and providing me with excellent representation. Mr. Maisonet handles his cases in a very thorough manner leaving no stone unturned. His research skills are also terrific. If there is a settled matter from a past case that supports your case, he will find it. I will also add that he is very personable, fair, and prompt. When he says he is going to do something, it gets done. I would highly recommend Mr. Maisonet to anyone in need of legal services.

I Lost My Children Due to this Man's Incompetence.
When did the failure start? Probably when i first heard Dimitri's stammering voice. His amateurish writing and thuggish demeanor were a good tip off, but the poor quality of his submissions to the court and his complete lack of rebuttal to every false allegation made by my wife's attorney. After io was assaulted by my wife Dimitri advised me to seek a protection order in Family court, Many more experienced lawyers upon hearing what he advised me to do have said the same thing. This BAD advice cost me the case. The judge feeling usurped of his jurisdiction, turned against Mr Maisonet, from which Dimitri was incapable of recovery. This should have been an easy case. I was assaulted, there were Domestic Intervention orders, but Dimitri Maisonet's gross incompetence has handed my children to an abusive alcoholic. And to Cap it off His law firm unannounced to me withdrew $2000 from my bank account two days before a court date. ( they had my banking information on file) Truly one of the worst experiences of my life was dealing with this incompetent person. His damage is near impossible to undo.
