Divorce/Custody
From the minute I met Tony, I knew I was making the right decision in hiring him for my divorce/custody journey. He is kind, patient, thorough, and truly understanding. At the lowest points, when I felt most hopeless, Tony stood by my side and gave me the strength to continue fighting. I always felt protected and understood, even when I felt nothing made sense. His calm demeanor coupled with the sharp, aggressive skills are second to none. I without a doubt would recommend Tony and his staff.

5 Star Divorce lawyer
If you're searching for an attorney, you must consider one's experience, temperament, personality, responsiveness, and legal finesse in dealing with "divorce" especially when children are at stake causing an embattlement the likes of which the movie Kramer vs. Kramer looks like a Disney movie. Tony and I fully prepared for trial up to the day of; then settled. His responsiveness is uncanny. He does not raise his voice, but when arguing points, he will back his opponent into a corner with untenable arguments. He responds to emails almost immediately. He knows the law. We dealt with the opposition consistently lying, as did my Ex, about all matters and were prepared to expose the truth at trial. Go for a consult. Its a no brainer to higher such a qualified, personable, and knowledgeable lawyer who is a regular guy. His office staff were also friendly, competent, and compassionate. He will also make you aware of all strategies, and the costs for applying each. At court, the man was known by everyone. After, forensics, law guardians, parenting coordinators, full trial prep, I'm satisfied with the outcome as much as one can be. I was ready to see this through to the very end, and did, with a competent attorney in Tony beside me.

Posted by Neil a divorce client
Tony Yovino is more than a five star lawyer. I had consulted with other lawyers but he was very positive right from the start . His ethical and practical approach kept the entire procedure a human experience . He guided me over any speed bumps along the way . His experience and direction was always directed to trying to resolve everything as quickly as possible. He is truly a unique person . I will be happy to refer anyone to him in the future . He is a wonderful example to his profession!!! I would highly suggest anyone thinking of a divorce consult with him before picking your attorney.

Having Mr. Yovino as my divorce attorney made things much easier than I thought they would be. I was always able to get in touch with him and when I couldn't, he always returned my calls promptly. His office was also very helpful.

Highly Recommended
Anthony Yovino's knowledge, calm demeanor, and professionalism are not only reassuring during a difficult time but are a clear indicator of his expertise in the field. He is the perfect balance of de-escalating highly emotional situations and intelligently attacking other attorneys to ensure getting what you need.

TDC Review of Anthony Yovino
Tony was great---I had a very difficult divorce with a unethical opposing lawyer. Tony continously preached to me to keep myself out of the gutter like them He made reasonable proposals that could be reviewewed and considered. He did not make idiotic proposal thatwere sure to be rejected. He prepped for each meeting and he counter her lawyer at just about each step. I would highly recommend him to anybody

Smart, knowledgeable, fair and reliable
My only regret is that I didn’t find Tony Yovino earlier in my divorce saga. After wasting much time and money on trial with a second rate hack, I was referred to Tony Yovino by an attorney friend. Tony’s professional handling of my case was in sharp contrast to my original attorney. He is smart, personable, very knowledgeable and was instrumental in settling the case. His billing practices are very fair - I highly recommend him.

Client Review of Attorney, Anthony Yovino
When my Divorce Case needed another Point of View, Mr. Yovino agreed to take on my Case. He is a very knowledgeable Attorney, who has reached out to many sources to get a proper perspective of my Case facts. In addition, I feel that he keeps me informed and only moves forward with the agenda items that need to be addressed.

a great attorney
Empathetic, knowledgable , and professional. Tony is a great communicator. From our first meeting with him, both my wife and I felt comfortable with him. He told us what to expect, and how he was going to proceed with our case. Tony has kept us in loop throughout the entire process. I am very proud to have him as our attorney.

Great choice of an attorney
Tony Yovino is an excellent matrimonial attorney. He is consistent, calm, professional, and well respected amongst lawyers and judges. I am a father of 3, Tony was able to get me custody of my kids which is very rare. Personnel in the office are very responsive and helpful. Great choice for an unfortunate situation such as a divorce.

You won't find a more capable, ethical, and hard-working lawyer out there
Anthony was my divorce attorney 10 years ago. I was completely satisfied with his work. When I had a child custody dispute pop up last year, there was no one else I would have considered turning to. He consistently proved himself to be sharp, well-prepared and tenacious. On multiple occasions, Anthony's calm and steady demeanor helped dissolve very tense situations. He could, however, jump on the offensive very aggressively when necessary. Anthony was always very conscious of what my costs were. We would have upfront discussions about the risks and costs of each strategy. At no time did I feel like he pushed a direction that wasn't solely in my best interest. As a testament to his ability, even my ex-wife recommended him to a friend of hers a few years after our divorce.
