I learned of Mr. Kusnetz services after my divorces was finalized but I wish I had Mr. Kusnetz from day one. His firm has been tremendous in helping me with some of the things I didn’t original consider when my uncontested divorce was done by another firm. He has helped me with all of my post-divorce issues such as visitation with my son and my child support obligations. He is a true partner who has been there for me providing solid advice every step of the way. He has also provided me with advice on getting my house sold and brought in one of his many competent associates to further move things along. I am truly grateful for the service he has provided me and his willingness to put in the extra effort that makes me feel at ease with such a stressful situation. I would recommend him to anyone no question about it.

Phil Kusnetz is an attorney like no other. From the moment I calls his office, I knew this was the attorney for me. My case was dismissed years ago on the issue of grounds. I felt like there was no hope.
Phil explained no fault divorce and answered all questions. I was particular impressed with his confident attitude, and reassuring tone. A few months later, my case was settled and I received a significant distributed award. You will not find a better lawyer at any price.

This past August, Phillip Kusnetz represented me in a case that took place in Family Court. Although I cannot discuss the specific details of the case, Mr Kusnetz represented me in a professional, zealous manner. He was able to have the case withdrawn and settled the case in my favor.
I habpve worked with many attorneys in the past. Mr Kusnetz is first rate, straightforward, and more importantly, a highly skilled and intelligent attorney.
I have already recommended him to associates who are in need of immediate legal advice and will continue to recommend him in the future.

I have known Phil for many years, and can whole-heartedly endorse him. He is an excellent lawyer and a good person. He knows how to navigate clients through emotionally stressful processes and secure the best possible outcomes for them. Phil is a credit to the profession.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Phil for over ten years now. During these years, he has shown a work ethic unmatched by any attorney I know. Recently, a family friend approached me seeking advice on her pending divorce. Despite having paid a substantial retainer, her attorney had done little to move her case along. I referred her to Phil. After retaining him, Phil resolved her matter expeditiously. He was also able to recover a portion of the retainer she had paid her first attorney. In short, she could not have been happier. It goes without saying, I highly recommend Phil.
