4.5 stars 31 totalReview Clifford Petroske
Posted by Dom
Cliff represented me for a continued period of 7 months and was pragmatic from the onset when discussing my case. He clearly outlined the risks and opportunities and made himself available when required. His experience and wisdom were definitely put at work. He showed his willingness and preparedness to take my case to trial, although his team eventually was able to extract a settlement, which avoided a potentially protracted and painful litigation. I was pleased by the quality of the work provided by Cliff and his well-qualified team.

I retained the services of Clifford Petroske for the purpose of a downward modification. His firm filed my case in the wrong jurisdiction and then failed to meet prima facie. They billed me for it and then claimed they would redo it for free! Really, how kind to fix your mistake for free! Then they gorilla billed through my retainer and failed to represent me in court, resulting in multiple adjournments and additional billing. He has hidden behind his standard agreement stating that a client has the right to arbitration, but if you are not an attorney what are you real chances? Anyhow, after three years I settled for an amount that I could have achieved pro se. Meaning I could have accomplished this without his terrible representation. He failed to show so often that the judge mandated that he appear regardless of my ability to pay him or not. In reality, his poor representation only served his billing purposes. I settled for an amount to this day that I cannot afford, he knew my circumstances and took my case with full understanding. He is now suing me for outrageous fees and services that were either not provided or poorly done. This man is notorious for gorilla billing tactics and poor work.

Some of the many qualities one looks for with an attorney is professionalism, realism, knowledge and effectiveness. Cliff Petroske has all of these, moreover, he surrounds himself with excellent staff, which in my view speaks volumes about the person. Petroske and his colleagues achieved more in 10 months than my previous lawyer in 3 years!

I cannot be more pleased with my experience with Clifford Petroske and his staff. While being both professional and personable, they were able to get me the results that I was seeking with my child support case in a reasonable amount of time. Should I encounter another issue in the future that requires legal representation, I will not hesitate to reach out to Cliff again.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Petroske and his staff for the excellent legal counsel they provided me during my divorce. It was an emotional and trying time in my life but Mr Petroske helped me through it all. He explained the law in detail to me and explained what both me and my ex were entitled to regardless of what or who caused the divorce and weather I liked it or not. There was no blowing smoke up my ass and promising me the world while all along reaching into my pocket for more money. Because of this I felt like I could trust Mr Petroske from day one. Throughout the divorce the trust was always there and Since I was well informed and not mis-informed I was able to get my divorce resolved and finalized in a reasonable amount of time which enabled and helped me to move on with my life. In conclusion, If you are looking for an honest lawyer that specializes in divorce and separation, I would highly recommend Mr Petroske. You will get a lawyer that is not looking only to get in your pocket but is looking to make sure you get a fair shake going thru the legal system.

I contacted Cliff after doing some internet research looking for a lawyer who was knowledgeable in the processing of QDRO's. From our first meeting, I knew Cliff was the one who would be able to assist me through the challenging process so I would be able to retire. Cliff and his team worked together with my employer and were able to expedite the processing of my QDRO through the courts. What I liked about Cliff and his paralegal Colleen who worked together with me, they were both very knowledgeable, professional, readily accessible, kept me informed and went above and beyond what I expected! This law firm is top notch and I would highly recommend them. I am forever grateful!

More than three years ago I started on a horrible journey of a painful and nightmarish divorce. From my first consultation with Cliff I was given hope and comfort. Over these past years I have truly felt that Cliff and his staff have been by my side, fighting this battle with me and for me. Cliff has an incredible team working for him, which in turn has been working for me. They are professional, compassionate, highly educated and go over and beyond to help you.
I am nearing the end of this very trying time in my life and it is with complete gratitude that I thank Cliff and his team for getting me through this. If you or anyone you know have ever been through a divorce you know the horrible toll it can take on you emotionally and financially. It is because of Cliff that I am emerging from this divorce with a favorable outcome and an excitement for my future. There is no lawyer out there that will fight harder for you.

Mr. Petroske did an excellent job of defending me against false allegations and restoring my custodial rights with my children.
