Angela made this process very clear and easy which was so helpful because my ex was being difficult. She patiently answered all of my questions during the consultation and made me feel comfortable throughout. She was available via email which was helpful and followed up with updates. I was extremely excited when she called to say that my divorce had been finalized (in exactly the timeframe she gave). I have already shared her information with a close friend.

Highly Experienced and professional
The circumstances surrounding my divorce made life very difficult. Angela’s counsel helped me clearly understand the legal aspects of the divorce process. Most importantly, her counsel provided me with a guide on how to address the realities of dealing with an ex-spouse. She is experienced and very knowledgeable, I highly recommend her.

Second Times a Charm
I hired Angela after I was served papers for a modification of child and spousal support from a previous divorce case. Going through my initial divorce case was a very difficult time in my life and the lawyer I hired for that case didn't help make me feel any better. After what I experienced with my first lawyer I knew I needed to make sure I found the right lawyer this time and I was blessed to find Angela. She reviewed my previous case and helped me understand what I needed in this current case. She was thoughtful, honest and understanding of my concerns. In our court appearance she was professional and very confident, advising me the whole time. My initial experience with my previous lawyer was not a good one but my second time with Angela representing me was a charm. I highly recommend her and if I ever need a lawyer again I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again.

Best Case Scenario
Mrs. Scarlato agreed to take my divorce and custody case in 2016. It was a complicated case in that there were pre-existing and very problematic legal agreements in place. Angela worked tirelessly with me to address the existing agreements and start new proceedings resulting in a thorough and fair divorce and custody settlement. She was available, knowledgable, strategic and compassionate, and took the time to understand my unique needs as an individual and parent. She was particularly successful at negotiating with the other, (quite difficult) party. The divorce and custody agreements were settled in 2017, and contained everything I needed to ensure a stable and secure future for me and my child. I should also note that her fees were incredibly reasonable considering the amount of time she dedicates to her clients and the quality of work. I highly recommend Mrs. Scarlato, especially for cases pertaining to divorce and custody.

Angela Scarlato was recommended to me by a friend and I am very pleased with the services she provided, and her compassionate demeanor. Angela was efficient, clear, authoritative, and also very kind during an emotional experience. Angela handled everything from start to finish in a way that relieved me of worry. She knew exactly what to do for any possible situation and I felt that I was in very good hands. I highly recommend her.

The Best!
I was so nervous & ignorant to divorce. Ms. Scarlato put me at ease. She is very knowledgeable about divorce law & custody. She was always available to answer any question day, night or weekend. I was glad to have her in my corner. She worked to get a fair settlement and do so without too much stress to me. She and her associates are great. I would recommend her any day! You can't go wrong with Scarlato & Associates.

Free at last....
For over a decade, I tried on and off to finalize my divorce. In 2016, I hired Angela Scarlato. From that moment, I felt confident I was in the best possible hands. Within a year, my divorce was completed. She was amazing - extremely knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. A tremendous weight has been lifted and I’m truly grateful for all of her efforts.

Highly Recommended
She won a case refused by other attorneys. They thought impossible to obtain a never asked past due child support, needed for education of a nearly 21 years old 'child'. Ms. Scarlato is tenaciuous and frank, considerate and supportive, and to meet her as person and professional is a real fortune.
Response from Angela Scarlato May 22, 2017
Thank you! It is most rewarding to win a case that other attorneys have refused because "it can't be done."

Professional, Efficient, and Compassionate
Dealing with the legalities and emotions surrounding divorce can be incredibly overwhelming - to say the least - but with Ms. Scarlato as my representation and guide, I felt well-equipped, prepared, protected, and yes, even empowered. From beginning to end, Ms. Scarlato made one of the most difficult experiences of my life one which I felt I could navigate with confidence and ease, and for that I am truly grateful. I highly recommend her, with no reservations. You will be, as I was, in very capable hands.

Angela took care of my post divorce agreements and more than that. i go to Angela for any type of Legal Advice , even if it is to just be reffered to someone she knows.

Amazing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Navigating a Child Custody Case is one of the most challenging experiences I have ever had to deal with. Thankfully Angela was there to provide me with great guidance and support. Her honest and hardworking approach ensured that the Final Custody agreement was both fair and sustainable for all parties. Saying I'm satisfied with her work is an understatement. I will be forever grateful to Angela and her team for all that they have done for my family.

Successful Custody Battle
In my quest to hire a family attorney for a children custody case, numerous attorneys I interviewed with were not inclined to accept my case due to the rare conditions involving my situation. They simply told me that I don’t have a winning chance for this case and left me feeling disheartened. Upon interviewing with Ms. Scarlato, I immediately noticed how attentive and intrigued she was about my situation. Although she honestly and frankly explained that I would have a slim chance of winning the case, she didn’t discourage me like the others. She explained that this case will be a challenge but she helped me understand what we would need to prove in order to have a strong chance of winning the case. I retained her services and worked closely with her for the few years this case lasted. We eventually won the case and I have legal custody of the children. I honestly believe this outcome would not have been achieved if it weren’t for Ms. Scarlato. Ms. Scarlato is a great attorney with professional and respectable work ethics toward you and anyone she works with on behalf of your case. She is honest, candid, determined and most of all, passionate about you and your situation. Ms. Scarlato was my avid advocator and I trust her wholeheartedly. Ms. Scarlato is the family attorney you would need to have represent you if you wish to have a strong chance of winning. I highly recommend Ms. Scarlato for your legal advice/needs, as she is the best out there.

It was satisfying on a professional level to be able to help Aunts gain custody of their nieces and nephews and on a personal level to see that the children are so well taken care of by their Aunts.

great lawyer
Arriving at child support court realizing your ex hired a lawyer is unsettling. Spoke to many lawyers and Mrs Scarlato made me feel comfortable and above all confident. I would definitely say if you need a lawyer hire Mrs. Scarlato.

My experience with Angela
Since my initial consultation in 2009 Angela has always been by my side. Angela has always kept me well informed, walked me through every process and has never steered me wrong through our 6 1/2 year journey. She always gave me her undivided attention whether we were speaking on the phone or in person and she makes you feel like a part of her family. I honestly don't believe I would be where I am at now with having custody of my son if it wasn't for Angela and I will forever be grateful.

Our experience with the Scarlatoloto agency
I found Angela's Agency very thorough and informative about our type of case. When a question arose she was always there to help, and make our experience easier. In court her and her staff were very polite and kept us very informed on all situations. I would highly recommend her to others.

Top of the class
Angela Scarlato represented me in a Divorce action several years ago. I won Custodial Parent rights of my Minor Child at the time and Angela was able to work out a Fair Settlement for both myself and my ex wife. Angela also was retained to assist me with a Family Court Matter successfully again. Angela is a Professional of the highest caliber and would also provide life advise when needed at no additional cost. Thank you Angela for your Professional Services through one of the most difficult times in my life. Respectfully and Grateful. Ford W.

The pleasure of working with Angela Scarlato
Facing the unfortunate need for a divorce lawyer, and in a hurry, Angela Scarlato made a difficult situation easier than one could possibly expect. She shared my vision for quick and fair agreement, with no drama, and when we ran into into the opposite, she was the calm clear voice I badly needed.
Response from Angela Scarlato July 27, 2015
Our job is to keep focused on the issues and keep our emotions out of the mix. It was a pleasure to work with you!
