Professional Honest Ethical
When it comes to Matrimonial law Simonetti and Associates is your place to go. Their wealth of knowledge is extremely impressive, always there when you need them, and on top they also understand the emotional position your in. In fact, I can personally attest to Lou Simonetti trying to get couples back together, which would result in their firm losing a client!! That said, having a firm that understands the emotional side, legal side and works for your best interests with incredible connections and expertise is a rare find.

Excellent!!
Lou Simonetti and everyone at the firm are great. I had a complicated child custody and support case, that involved Family, Supreme, and Landlord Tenant Court. Two years after my initial petition, I was back in Family Court. Charlotte Betts represented me both times and was outstanding. She is very professional and responsive. Her attention to detail is second to none. I highly recommend her and the entire firm!

Without Question
I have known Lou Simonetti for over two decades and not only is he a wonderful person, he is a supremely talented and hard-working attorney. He is always accessible whether it is through a call or an email and has the requisite temperament to deal kindly with his clients and be aggressive when needed in a courtroom or representative manner. I found his comparably fair and for the level of representation you could not choose a better partner. Lou and his staff have the requisite work ethic one requires for these delicate times in people’s lives. I recommend Simonetti and Associates in the highest of terms.

The Best Out There!
My divorce was a very stressful and dark period in my life. Yet working with Mr. Simonetti allowed this to be as easy as it possibly could be. It was difficult to think clearly when I needed to, and Mr. Simonetti helped guide me to make the right decisions when necessary. He was very communicative, being quick to answer emails and phone calls when I was in need of his direction. I don’t think I could have trusted anyone else with this responsibility, but Mr. Simonetti helped make this experience as seamless as possible and I have endless gratitude for all he was able to help me get through.
