John Guttridge and Jo-Ann Cambareri are hands down the best family attorneys. Their knowledge, fortitude and compassion are the nuts and bolts of their practice. I went through many attorneys in my 17 year divorce battle and I have never encountered this level and quality of service nor humanity from any of the other lawyers. In the end, the results of their hard work paid off in spades. I highly, highly recommend this law firm.

Best Family Lawyers in Westchester
John Guttridge and Jo-Ann Cambareri are without a doubt the best family attorneys in Westchester, NY. I went through an extremely high conflict, interstate custody battle and they could not have fought harder for my case. They are very smart, clever, quick witted, tough and truly care about the welfare of their clients. The result is after a very long, hard journey, I was finally awarded sole legal and physical custody of my daughter. I could not thank or recommend them more.

A Top-Notch Professional
John Guttridge was recommended to me during my extremely contentious divorce and I will forever be grateful for that recommendation. John is not only an attorney with years of experience, he is also a compassionate human being and treats his clients with utmost respect and dignity. From the start John set realistic expectations, answered questions patiently and got fair results in my case. He is a straight-shooter who will be upfront with you about positive and negative sides of your case. If you are facing a divorce trail, especially in Westcheser County, the biggest mistake you can make is not calling John before your soon to be ex-spouse does. Truly a 5 star professional with a fantastic support team.

Consummate Experts with Highest Degree of Humanity and Level Headedness
Truthfully, 5-stars is not high enough of a rating for the quality of service, practical counsel, cool headedness, honesty, and fairness I have experienced and received from John/his firm, especially compared to the many other 'family law' attorneys whom I met and/or paid for advice. According to the statistics, divorce seems almost inevitable for more than half of all couples today. And the percentage does not look to be coming down. If you become part of this stat and are fortunate to live in the Westchester jurisdiction, then you are very lucky (I realize you will not believe this bc you are experiencing your life unravel before you) because you have the opportunity to work with and be represented by John (and/or Joanne) and their staff. I can confidently state from a lot of experience getting represented by other attorneys (all in NYC and more expensive), that my experience and satisfaction having John represent me could not have been higher. If you think you will get divorced, then you have only one call to make to put yourself in a position that will give you the best opportunity for the most decent (fair, equitable) and optimally satisfactory division and separation from your spouse. John and his firm will help you through the process in the most expedient, cost-effective and highest-quality manner possible, anywhere. The highest quality in every dimension.

5 Star
John was recommended to me from a friend as a "divorce lawyer who cares". He exceeded all expections! John and his staff provided me with stellar legal advice and council. He also instilled in me a sense of reassurance and calm throughout a very contencious divorce/ custody battle.

Pre, during and Post divorce.
I have been divorced for 6 years. Mr Guttridge was recommended to me by 3 different sources at the time that my divorce was commenced in 2012. He negotiated my stipulation of settlement and that ultimately was the vehicle that moved my situation forward to the final decree of divorce. I am a self employed individual and my financial situation was not easy to navigate through during the process but Mr Guttridges no nonsense approach to opposing counsel landed me with a resolution that was good for me and my children. In 2015, a custody petition was filed against me by my x-wifes and I needed to, again, depend on Mr Guttridges many years of experience to ensure I didn't loose any of my parental rights that we're agreed upon only 3 years ago. My x-wife withdrew her petition after Mr Guttridge defended me me to the fullest capacity in May of 2017. To date in 2018, I have another change in circumstances. My X wife is gainfully employed and I am now seeking to modify my custody and support obligations to my x-wifes. More details to follow. I will recommend only one attorney to anyone that asks me. Mr John Charles Guttridge!

The pinnacle of professionalism and efficiency, I couldn't have been happier with Mr Guttridge. He and his staff (especially Toniann) were there for me every step of the way and even checked on my well being in the months that followed, a small detail that meant alot to me.

Estimably professional
Both partners have been first class both professionally and humanly at all times in their successful handling of our case. Vital advice has always been given promptly and sympathetically, and all projected outcomes have been achieved Highly recommended with no reservations.

Highly recommended
Mr Guttridge, Joanne Cambareri and his team are the complete opposite of the term "scumbag lawyer." All hands are on deck when you are wise enough to hire their services. If you don't receive a callback immediately on daily issues in your case don't distress. The only reason the callback has not been returned is because they haven't received an answer from others. They refuse to charge you to only state that they are waiting for others to provide them with answers. Believe me it was important "THEY WOULD CALL YOU." As sad as it may sound, truth be told , John and Joanne reinstated my children into my lives and went to war for what was right. Not for economical gain but because they knew it was the right thing to do. If you have a dilemma and you need someone as passionate as you are for your fight they are it. Believe there is justice in the world and call for a consult.

Kind, understanding, patient, and compassionate human being I would recommend him highly
I highly recommend John for his knowledge and patience and understanding during a time when things seem like they are never going to end ....there is a light at the end of the tunnel and he works hard to bring light to your situation...I am not a very organized person, he helped make it easy and does not take advantage of the situation you are in. I thank god I found him and have faith in my outcome. He is kind spirited and understanding. A wonder Lawyer and works hard.

So far his intake has been the best. He is a real person besides just a lawyer. He is the first lawyer that I really felt comfortable walking out of his office. He didn't judge me, he listened, he really understood the full extent of the abuse I have been going through and acknowledge it in his own way. I will continue to post non biased reviews, but just from my intake I see something different about this man. He is not a bully, even keeled, knowledgeable, and affirmed.

Did not look out for the best interest of me, my kids, or inform the court of events
I paid a premium to be represented and he never informed the court that I was rightfully owed child support money. He never informed me in a timely manner of court dates, insisted he needed to hold my hand in sale of property and use Realestate Agent he recommended. I had to pay for a court transcript to find out he down played a court appearance - where he never informed the court that I, his client had been owed money, that I had been cooperating all along in the sale of the house. He made me sign a release of consent of his services which jeapordized my living in MY house with my daughters. We got evicted (I was the sole mortgage holder/ payee of property for 17 years) out of our him 3 wks time. I just paid consultation fee to legal counsel to find out to motions where to have been put in 1) related to the property and the 2) for outstanding child support, medical and college expenses. Every lawyer knows there were to motions to be put in. Not only did I not get represented correctly and paid a nice Premium for no defense - the residual is that a deadbeat dad/ X spouse profitted from the sale of house for the sum of 50% of profits and now walks away without having to pay the child support for his kids. If i want to go after the support I'll have to pay a 3 lawyer to defend me, pay money I don't have and make a deadbeat who never paid -continue to never be held accountable. I would not recommend this attorney to anyone. I literally just had 2 attorneys confirm in disbelief that every attorney knows there were 2 motions that had to be put in.
