Great attorney
Alex is excellent. He is honest, straightforward, accessible and diligent in his representation. I used him and Kathleen for an L&T case and followed their instructions EXACTLY and the outcome was positive. I used Alex for the matrimonial matter which had multiple layers of extraordinary issues and the circumstances surrounding my spouses’ mental illness along with a serious error by the court’s clerk posed certain limitations which Alex was not responsible for. In spite of those challenges, Alex got me the most favorable outcome possible. I would not hesitate to recommend him. He is a great person and excellent attorney. Once retained, he goes all in and does not waiver!

Balanced and trustworthy
I was referred to Sklavos Law by another lawyer familiar with the firm. Alex and Kathleen were very easy to work with during a very emotionally complex time. From the start I understood Alex’s style of be straight forward and realistic about how things may play out through his vast experience. Even when things appeared out of my favor he was always thinking about strategy and how to avoid emotional fights that lead to extra stress and worse outcomes. I trusted his judgement immensely and he was fair and honest with me throughout. He never attempted to do more than necessary to move the case forward, and he never tried to talk negatively about my spouse to create a war or to drive the legal costs up unnecessarily. I always felt that he was ready to express his view but was willing to support however I chose to proceed. When comparing to my spouses attorney and the tactics and questionable ethics throughout it made it clear that I had the type of lawyer I preferred....honest but also always ready to fight against nonsense from the opposing team. He sees it coming a mile away and that experience was the difference. Kathleen was also on top of all of the discovery and they made a very frustrating process pretty simple considering how much data has to be pulled together. Thanks to both of you.

Competent, Friendly and Compassionate Attorney
Me. Sklavos was referred to me by another attorney in a last minute crisis. He followed up and contacted me and immediately made me feel at ease. He worked with me on an urgent issue and was able to quickly learn the facts about my case. He immediately told me what needed to be done and his overall view on the case. He handled the case to my satisfaction. He was firm, precise and was able to stand up to the opposing counsel and advocate for me. He listened to my concerns but also instructed me every step of the way. He was available by email or phone call when I tried to contact him. I am very happy with his counsel and would highly recommend him.

I went to Alex with a challenging situation and he immediately made me feel comfortable and confident that I was in good hands. He always had the right balance on how to deal with the different challenges. I’m lucky to have had him recommended to me!

Client
I was connected to the Sklavos Law Group via an old colleague to represent me in my divorce. Alex, Kathleen and the rest of the team were there for me every step of the way. They were always available to answer any questions and give advice. My case should have been a quick and easy matter to settle but when it became clear that it wouldn't be that way - they fiercely advocated for me and brought the matter to a conclusion that I am incredibly happy with.

Pleasure to work with
Alex and his staff were very responsive and guided me through the process of creating a will and health care proxy. Alex made sure I was comfortable and explained each document to me in full. He was cognizant of his time and was a pleasure to work with.

The best attorney on Long Island
About 2 years ago I filed for divorce and I retained Alex Sklavos as my attorney. I have never met a more professional and kind human being. Alex was with me every step of the way through my nightmare of a divorce. All I ever wanted was joint custody of my little girl and Alex made a promise to me from day one that I wouldn't lose my little girl and I had a strong case. That being said Alex gave me excellent advice throughout this night mare of an ordeal and I listened every step of the way. Not only was Alex there for me as a professional but also as a friend. In the end Alex came through as promised and I was awarded 50/50 legal and physical custody of my daughter and I couldn't be more pleased with his services. I recommend Alex and his firm to anyone. You want great legal service the Sklavos law group is the firm to choose. Thank you again Alex

Professional, knowledgeable, compassionate....amazing!!!
Alex was handling my divorce case. He answered my questions, emails, phone calls, without delay. He took his time explaining my options to me. His confidence is contagious. I was showing up in court all stressed out and hopeless, but having Alex by my side gave me my strength back. It was a blessing, and a pleasure to have him represent me. His office team is nothing less than amazing. I couldn't ask for a better lawyer and his team to work on my case. I am truly grateful !

Thank you Alex!!!!
Alex is extrodianry! Very professional. He offered genuine interest in me as well as my case! He answered all of my questions thoroughly and honestly. I was confused and felt defeated when I presented my case to him. He was so nice, offered me genuine advice and helped me through the process. I came to him so unprepared! But he made me feel comfortable enough to be frank about my experience. By far one of the most genuine people I have ever met. Thank you Alex! For your generosity and hospitality!!!

Five star lawyer
Alex Sklavos, an attorney with Sklavos Law, demonstrated the breadth of his legal expertise and knowledge when I hired him to represent me in a particularly complex family custody case. His thoroughness and explanation throughout the entire legal process demonstrated his knowledge, dedication and compassion. He adequately prepared me for all meetings, answering any and all of questions. His commendable work as Long Island's Family Law & Civil Litigation Attorney makes him one of the best in the business. For legal representation, I highly recommend him, his paralegals and entire staff.

One of the best things I did besides file for divorce was to hire Alex. He is HONEST. TRUSTWORTHY AND COMPASSIONATE. He has handled my divorce, closing on my home and will. I believe anyone who as negative post has been on the opposing team. Alex, will spend his time to discuss your wishes and follow through. Thank you Alex you gave me my life back!

The finest matrimonial attorney on Long Island
I am an attorney in Nassau County and have known Alex for 20 years. Alex is my "go to" attorney for all family law matters. Whenever I have a client who has any issue involving divorce, separation or family law, Alex will handle the matter with compassion and develop a strategy to maximize the clients goals. He has obtained incredible results for my clients.

An attorney partner on your side, a bulldog for your opponent.
A day does not go by when one does not see or hear continuous running ads for lawyers and law firms. This firm won this award, or there are billions of dollars just waiting for you to collect by hiring this attorney, and on and on and on. Notice how they always end off every ad with the famous line “past performance is no guarantee of future results’. They also don’t explain in the ad what happens after you retain them. All these thoughts were going through my mind when I met Alex Sklavos Esq. He didn’t make promises, he didn’t judge me, and he didn’t pass me off to an associate because he was too busy with larger cases. What he did do was take a lengthy history, personally review all my documents, and he gave me his best guesstimate on what to expect. And what all the pros and cons of my case would be, should I decide to move forward and pursue justice for myself. And that is the type of attorney you want on your side. Alex Sklavos Esq. pursued my case aggressively and professionally, he kept me in the loop and discussed every aspect of the case and strategy, and never once did I feel I was living outside the box. I was really a full partner in this effort. Yes, there were highs and lows along the way. Indeed there were times when my case did not look so rosy. Alex’s brilliant strategies and doggedness to details of the law, kept my case alive. In the end, Alex Sklavos saved me over a million dollars in future payments to which I will no longer be obligated. Without Alex and his team, my financial future would have been in doubt. Don’t make the same mistake others make when hiring an attorney. You’ll be glad you chose Alex Sklavos Esq.
