About Bryan

Learn Bryan’s areas of practice.

5
Practice areas
  1. Child custody
    20%
    Our clients do not want custody, they need it. People who hire us demand the best. Custody is based on the best interest of the child or children. Our attorneys' goal is to argue your case to show the judge that you are the best parent. Judges do not live with the parties and have no idea as to who is the best parent; we must demonstrate that you are the best parent. We know how to present your case and admit evidence to court showing that custody should be with you.

  2. Child support
    20%
    Among the many financial issues to be decided in a divorce or separation, child and spousal support are perhaps the most critical. Your divorce should not leave you incapable of caring for yourself or your children, nor should divorce require you to pay excessively. There are many unique and creative ways to deal with child and spousal support. We provide you with our experience and our advice as to child support. We fully understand the laws and options governing child support.

  3. Divorce and separation
    20%
    Agreements, orders, settlements, and/or judgments made in your divorce will affect your life more than you can imagine. It is imperative that you hire the right attorney, one who is highly skilled in Divorce and Family Law and who is experienced and aggressive. We are aggressive, and we will work hard for you. If you need to win, you need tough attorneys who handle only divorce and family law cases. Hire our team of highly skilled trial lawyers.

  4. Marriage and prenuptials
    20%
    The need for pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements becomes increasingly important as people’s economic circumstances grow more complex. It is prudent that certain kinds of property acquired before and after a marriage be identified and their potential future disposition clearly agreed to. This helps avoid litigation in the event of a divorce. Our firm’s experience in pre and post nuptial agreements is extensive and personal.

  5. Mediation
    20%
    Even though we are well-known for our aggressive litigation tactics, we also provide mediation services, and we offer our services to clients who seek separation and/or prenuptial agreements. We not only go over the numbers with you, talk to you about the law, review the facts with you, and discuss your children with you; we always get the job done. What this means is that we provide you with the agreement and the judgment of divorce.

best law firm ever!
i have known bryan for many years and over that time i have recommended his services to many of my friends. i am not the type of person that likes to recommend people, especially with attorneys because it usually ends up bad. i must say however that the office of bryan l. salamone is the best there is! the feedback i receive from friends and family members is amazing! from the office staff to bryan himself, ... it is first class all the way!

They Kept it simple + straightforward
Two kids; one house; one dog; and a divorce. It wasnt that complicated but to her it was the end of the world… ww3 and it had already been going on for years when I first hired Mr. Salamone. To Say I should’ve hired him first as an understatement. I had my first lawyer, because all he did was talk about how much he “saw” in my case and how much he could fight and get for me. In the end, it just cost me money. Salamone is different. What it is he always showed how he could get me out of this with my shirt still on my back. I highly recommend him. He didnt get this successful giving out bad advice. You dont always have to fight to win you just have to be smart about things and listen to good advice. Listen to this lawyer you wont be sorry

Divorce Issue
Bryan is a very professional attorney who helped me in getting a divorce from my wife. As she was having extramarital affair with her colleague and I wanted to free myself from this relation. Bryan is a very polite and truly understanding lawyer. He helped me a lot and stood with me throughout!

Divorce Lawyer
I hired Brian Salome for a no-fault divorce on November 2020. My Lawyer is Rebecca Flohr. Rebecca is very professional and courteous towards me. She explained the process to me step by steps. So everything was practically done on December 31, 2020. I am waiting for the certification from the job will take 6-9 months. I think the wait is too long. But if the best they can do, that’s it. I would refer some one to Brian Salome.

Best Law Firm
Katherine Saciolo, Esq. and her Paralegal Doreen Bolognese are professional, knowledgeable and caring. They helped me get through a rough divorce. They explained everything to me and the firm is very affordable. I recommend Bryan L. Salamone & Associates, P.C. for your divorce or Family Court matters.

Fair, and, honest.
I went with Salamone and associates for a divorce. After digging around through couple lawyers and reading success stories, the proof is in the pudding. My divorce was very difficult as other matters came into light but my attorney K. Saciolo was there every step of the way. Thank you

This is the law office to go to for your divorce needs! They took great care of me in 2016 when my divorce was finalized. Just recently I needed my paperwork which was misplaced for a closing on a new home and they expedited the retrieval of the documents and had them to me in under 24 hours!

Best attorney
What a wonderful team of paralegals and attorneys. As stressful as a time of going through a divorce is, the team of Bryan Salamone’s office made it so much easier. Each visit I made to the office I was greeted with at most respect, and felt not as if I was another statistic, but a person that deserved to be treated with understanding and compassion. Every person I encountered had knowledgeable answers, and advice that was true, never did I feel that I was being deceived. Kind and friendly atmosphere, very professional and respectful. I would recommend Bryan Salamone and Associates to each and every person. Brendon Druek, I don’t have enough words to praise your professionalism and your humility! Thank you for being an amazing human being and for treating me like one!

Excellent firm
I retained Bryan Salamone & Associates for what I knew would be a highly contested divorce and was represented by Karolina Krasnyanskaya. From the very first consultation to the day that I received my Judgement of Divorce, Karolina was there to guide me every step of the way through the entire process. She fought tooth and nail to make sure that I got everything that I needed to move forward with my life. I highly recommend this firm to anyone who is having a difficult time with their divorce.

I hired Katherine Saciolo to represent me in my relocation case.
Katherine Saciolo has been nothing short of a Godsend throughout my relocation and contempt case against my ex husband. She is extremely attentive, caring and respectful. She always answers my questions and concerns and always replies to my emails in a timely manner. She fights hard for me and makes me feel as if I'm the only client she has. I've truly grown to love her! She and Bryan both have guided me through this whole process and I'm very grateful to have them both fighting for me. Katherine's paralegal Doreen is also one that deserves props as she is very personable and accommodating and I've grown quite attached to her as well. As far as some other reviews and complaints about the manners in which they're dealt, there's all types of personalities in the world. Some are warm and fuzzy, some are more in your face. I'm not paying for warm and fuzzy. I'm paying for a bulldog in the court room and I'd much rather have a "winning" "scandal" on my side than a warm and fuzzy pushover. However I've only experienced professionalism and courtesy from this firm. Having to go through the court process is never cheap. If you don't pay the electric bill, your lights get shut off. There's no difference. I do have a rock solid case. Even so, I realize the judge has the final say. Even if I don't get everything I want when this is all said and done, my feelings about this firm will not change!

Excellent Representation
Having been represented by Bryan Salamone in the past and most recently by Jeffrey Herbst, I can write that they are professional and competent in their representation. Family Court is arbitrary, capricious and without reason. However, my attorneys have always represented me with my best interest in mind and offered their expertise in guiding me through a system that is nonsensical. I highly recommend this firm.

The Best
The professional way of handling the case, as well as to find solution and be ready and well prepared while studying the case. The positive result speaks for itself. And most important, was always updated and discussing the options we have and choose what’s best for us. Grateful and thankful that I am in the hands of Bryan Salamone. Highly recommended and by far unmatched. God Bless

Single dad is extremely happy with the work Bryan and his team have done for my custody fight
Suddenly, I found myself seeking sole custody of our son. I new I was in for an uphill battle. I am a single dad. The system is not fair. The mother is still given the benefit of the doubt. The mother of my child wanted custody of our son as much as I did and she was told it would be no problem from several attorneys for her to get sole custody After hearing this, I searched online. Bryan was highly rated, so I called. I am so happy I retained him. It was a blessing. I met him late at his office past 7pm, he waited for me and my son. He took the time to discuss my case thoroughly. I was not rushed, I didn't feel like I was given a sales pitch. My son even watched "Thomas Train" while we discussed my case. I felt very comfortable as Bryan and his team are extremely knowledgeable in custody matters. Not only did Bryan help me but also Katherine Saciolo. I really felt my best interests were being addressed. I am a chess player and forward thinker. I felt Bryan was the same. I am impressed when the resources I hire to fight for me are battle tested and ready to go. Bryan and Katherine are excellent. I am not an attorney. As such, I don't know what to expect. Bryan prepped me, answered all questions I had (I am very thorough), and more importantly told me where we stood on all the issues and what the possible outcomes may be. I was never left in the dark. Bryan has tremendous experience in the court house as does his entire team. During my case the judge even admitted that he sees Bryan representing clients "all the time." I liked that. I don't want someone learning the ropes on my dime. I shopped around, his fees are very reasonable. If you want someone who is going to fight and knows the system well, hire Bryan Salamone. Thanks again, Bryan and Katherine.

Great attorney
Melody Maher handled my divorce. She was very knowledgeable about all aspects of my case at all times. Melody was extremely honest and if she felt any pressure during the time I worked with her from the other side she never showed it. Her paralegal Victoria was extremely compassionate towards me. Victoria would let me vent when I needed too and never rushed me off the phone. Victoria made me feel like my concerns mattered, no matter how trival I thought they may have been at the time. I truly felt at ease confiding in Melody and Victoria. Both Melody and Victoria were extremely professional and I would highly recommend Attorney Melody Maher and her paralegal Victoria to anyone going through a divorce.
