Excellent and helpful
Belinda was helpful throughout my entire experience! She was a strong lawyer, and cared about getting me the outcome I needed and deserved. She helped me dismiss an order of protection efficiently and made sure everything I needed was order. Could not recommend and applaud more! 60 years old and one of the best lawyers I had in my life, she was sharp, on point, and honest.

EXELENTE ABOGADA!!
Quiero agradecer sinceramente y expresar mi aprecio por la abogada Belinda. Sus esfuerzos y dedicación a mi caso en la corte familiar ayudaron a alcanzar un resultado muy exitoso. Contraté a Belinda después de recibir una buena recomendación de un amigo cercano. Le expliqué que ya había estado en el Tribunal de Familia durante 3 años luchando por la custodia exclusiva y que mi caso parecía no avanzar. Después de mi primera consulta con la abogada Belinda inmediatamente me sentí cómoda. Se tomó el tiempo de escuchar todas mis inquietudes y dudas y se aseguró de responder todas mis preguntas. Belinda es extremadamente profesional y organizada. Ella realmente se preocupa por sus clientes y no se detiene ante nada para asegurarse de que se satisfagan todas sus necesidades. Esto fue especialmente importante durante la pandemia. Belinda llegó a mi vida durante un tiempo muy turbulento. Su confianza, conocimiento y empatía me dieron una sensación de paz y seguridad de que todo saldría bien. A pesar de los pocos momentos difíciles durante mi caso, Belinda mantuvo una compostura muy profesional. Belinda tiene un gran corazón y mucha experiencia legal para acompañarlo. Sé que todas estas cualidades son las que finalmente me ayudaron a ganar mi batalla para obtener la custodia completa y de mi hija en la corte de familia y por eso siempre estaré agradecido. La recomendaría a cualquiera que busque un representante legal. Es la mejor.

OUTSTANDING ATTORNEY
While no one wishes to find themselves in a child custody case, Belinda Arevalo is a compassionate, knowledgeable, and thorough attorney who can guide you through the process. She made a difficult process much easier to get through. She guided me through a very dark moment in my life. I am so thankful for my attorney’s dedication and professionalism. She is an outstanding attorney and I will refer her to anyone should they need an attorney.

Amazing
I am happy, I chose Ms. Arevalo as my divorce lawyer she was very detailed and clear about the process. The pandemic did slow down my case but Ms. Arevalo never failed to give me updates. Belinda is compassionate, honest and knows what she’s doing !. I’ve never hired or had to deal with a lawyer in my life up until this point, but I am glad my first legal matter was taken care of by Belinda, a true professional.

Professional Recognition !
Mrs. Belinda AREVALO, lawyer, Legal-Attorney: She was my 3rd lawyer, during a period time, less than a month, after several attempts to resolve unsuccessful my case, at family Court, with others, for more than a year, given the difficult pandemic time, Covid-19. As my lawyer in a case, as Respondent, she has interviewed me, looking for what would be the best defense strategy against the Petitioner, in certain false allegations, full of divorce revenge, and at the same time, she used her sagacity, and her experiences, to determine sincerity in my sustained statements; Despite my personal nature, a little upsetting, which allowed her to implement all her professional assets and, conversely, she also collected information about the petitioner, thus aiming for inconsistencies and contradictions, in order to get an idea of proper defense; Thus, she uses her professional capital to dismantle the petitioner's resiliency and tenacity, in her blind arrogance, forcing her to negotiate a favorable exit for all. I can, therefore, say, with satisfaction, that in a few days: Ms AREVALO, Legal-Attorney, without any professional show, nor presumption, but sure of her great professional acknowledgements, was able to resolve, without conflict, my case, what interested me, the most, in order to protect the children, emotionally, already victims of their own mother, unfortunately, who did not know how to learn that the well-being of her children, should be taken precedence over everything, regardless of the sacrifices. Respectfully! Best Regards! Pierre L.

Best Attorney
Attorney Arevalo is a rock star lawyer. She is so genuine and passionate about her work, a rare find in the legal world. She handled an extremely challenging and ongoing case for me. She was the third attorney I worked with and was the only one to resolve a complex issue that I was beginning to think was not solvable. She is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, determined and uses the appropriate amount of pressure to produce results. She was professional and responsive, even late at night. My daughter and I have a much better life because of her. Highly, highly recommend.

Excellent Family Law Attorney
From our first consultation with Belinda we knew we were in the right hands. My fiance and I were dealing with an uncooperative ex-wife who was making it difficult for my fiance to spend quality time with his daughter as there was no written visitation agreement in place. Belinda helped us get exactly what we wanted - a structured, fair and very generous visitation agreement, enforceable by law, which the ex-wife must abide by. Because of Belinda we can now plan family vacations with the child without any worries. We also have guaranteed holidays and vacation time. We couldn't be happier with the outcome. Should we need to deal with any violations to the visitation agreement we will definitely be hiring Belinda and her firm again!

Excellent and professional
Ms Arevalo is an awesome lawyer. She always returned my calls promptly. She defended me for 2 cases ( Child support and custody). My ex filed for an upward modification for child support and Ms Arevalo shut her down. I was so happy because I never used a lawyer before and i I I always lost the modification and I finally won, thanks to ms Arevalo. Now secondly, I filed for legal joint custody and also got what I wanted, thanks to Ms. Arevalo.

Excessive Support
I have been burdened to pay support for my son who has lived with me for years. I was in a state of arrears which made it impossible for me to acquire my driving privileges and professional licenses. In just 3 courtroom appearances My case was removed from the SEU and I was granted the privilege of acquiring my Drivers License as well as professional licenses. Thanks to Arevalo for fighting the good fight on my behalf.

Great Attorney
Ms. Arevalo assist me in a very professional manner in regards to my divorce with my ex partner. She was recommended to me by a coworker who's family member hired her to assist and resolving their issues. After reading many great reviews I've decided to pay her a visit. During my initial consultation she clearly stated what procedure I needed to take to start my divorce process as this was my first marriage and things were a bit confusing at first. Once the filing started my ex partner gave us problems in which was delt with in a professionally manner. I was able to keep my vehicle without further issues from my ex. Overall I would recommend her to any of my peers in the event they have to go through a similar situation.

Order of Protection
I hired Arevalo Law to represent me in a case 3 weeks ago in Bronx county court. Belinda and her staff were professional, efficient, and most importantly compassionate. Arevalo Law helped me to achieve my goal. Thank you for being so diligent this is highly appreciated, as my Family Offense Petition and Order of Protection was dismissed against me at the first hearing. I could not have chosen a better law firm. Belinda you are an angel God bless you.

Great Attorney, Results Driven and Deatiled Oriented
My husband and I retained Ms. Arevalo for both a custody and child support case. We had dealt with 3 other attorneys in which we were very unhappy with, prior to Ms. Arevalo being recommended to us. Upon consultation, Ms. Arevalo didn't sell us any dreams, she provided us with both best and worst case scenario. She was always prepared and well versed when defending our cases. She gave us an overview before entering the courtroom and a out- brief after each hearing. I can't express how impressed I was with her tenacity to ensure my husband was treated fairly as the non-custodial parent. Ms. Arevalo achieved what other attorneys told us was impossible. I would highly recommend her to any parent facing challenging family court issues. We received best case scenarios in both of our cases.

Delivered as promised!
Not being a resident of NY, I reached out to Blinda Arevalo in hopes she could fully represent me, in my family court case. I chose her because of her established presence there in the NY area and excellent track record. The added bonus was that she was bi-lingual, pleasant and thoughtful. I did not speak Spanish but this was a necessity in achieving success for my case. I put my trust in Belinda's expertise and was not disappointed. She and her legal staff was able to explain what I was up against and estimate the time and cost to have a successful outcome. She and her legal staff worked with me every step in gathering and preparing the necessary documents to fight my case with confidence. She explained legal terms and answered every question that plagued my conscience. Having the knowledge to succeed is a good thing, but also having the ability to use this knowledge is a gift. I am forever grateful that my attorney, Belinda Arevalo courageously represented me and saved me from a pack of deceitful lies which could have damaged my reputation, work and life. God bless you Belinda!

OUTSTANDING SERVICE to ACTIVE MILITARY
My case: I am active duty military (US.NAVY), have served 17 years, currently living and station on a ship in Naval Station Norfolk VA. I have been station oversea, and deploy and never missed a child support payment, the child’s mother took all contact away trying to separate me from the child and now trying to take sole custody of him. She took phone contact, social media and moved to New York State, I have not seen my child for 3 years. The child’s mother took me to court, I appeared court and her attorney and judge was asking me lots of questions I could not understand but one. “Do you want to represent your self or get an attorney”. I prayed, wanted to make sure I get an Attorney that will be capable of representing me while away on military duties and living in the state of Virginia, someone that will give me assurance that will win this case and looked at reviews on line. • First day before i stepped inside court, Ms Belinda asked me,” When and where do you want to pick him up”. YES that happened! She successfully has reunited me with my son, who shed tears, as he saw me pick him up at school for the first time in his life. • Highly involve, loves her job, she is family oriented. I don’t feel like a client i feel like a member of AREVALO LAW. Even thought I live in the state of Virginia I am represented at court, and all for my favor. • The other attorney had to agree on all she said at court; her presence is dominant at court she sets the tone. I got all I wanted…. • I had previous bad experiences with Attorneys not answering phone calls BUT MS Belinda Arevalo and her team will keep me inform , answer all phone calls, and text messages. She ensures I got all court documentation, visitation, child school information through AREVALO LAW application online or got me all documentation right after court. • I have decided to fight custody and she is presenting my case, I have no doubt that I will have the case to my favor! I highly recommend MS Belinda Arevalo, her presence is dominant at court, she sets the stage and standards, she is always ready and had all the answers for the judge, I had to say nothing at court, and she represented me flawlessly. She knows all avenues to my favor and she receives my strongest recommendation.

Prayers Work!
Ms. Belinda Arevalo was sent into my life at the most traumatic point. My peace, in the newest part of my life with my child, was interrupted one night when an officer knocked on my door and served me with a Writ of Habeas Corpus. It stated that I had to return to my previous home state, with my child, within 24 hours or I would be arrested. After legally relocating, I was completely distraught to even think I had broken the law but to an even greater degree, that my child’s life will have to be uprooted again. The school that he had grown to love, his new set of friends that he constantly spoke positively of, my new and exciting career, expansive living space that both of us had dreamed of, the safe neighborhood that I had prayed for – ALL would be taken away in approximately 24-48 hours. There is absolutely nothing I can compare that would equally measure how I felt. After a new prayer request and one conversation with Ms. Arevalo, I felt confident that we would prevail! She had no worries which absolutely helped during that time of crisis. The following day, Ms. Arevalo put her skills and talent to work in the court. Due to her determination and in-depth knowledge of the law that was clearly displayed, the judge, that my child and I were to report to, dismissed that writ! Appearing electronically while standing in front of a notary in my new home state, my hands were raised to God as that was my way to keep from screaming - VICTORY! We achieved exactly what we set out to do! Ms. Arevalo claimed the triumph and it happened. A huge WIN for my son and I!!! I can’t yell it enough - THANK GOD & THANK YOU SO MUCH MS. AREVALO!
