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!

Professional, Honest & Courteous
I've had the pleasure of knowing Lou for several years and the honor of having him represent me in court. What I know is he and his staff provide exemplary service and are extremely effective at their jobs. He cares about his clients and it shows in the culture he's built, and the work he puts in to getting you results.

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.

Mr. Simonetti and his team helped my friend through a difficult divorce. I was there for moral support, but I did get a firsthand look at how prepared and how committed they were to helping my friend. Very knowledgeable and compassionate.

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.

Mr. Simonetti and staff and real Pro’s that care
Just wanted to thank Mr. Simonetti and his staff for the great service he provided me in a difficult time. My case was handled swiftly with a very favorable outcome that I was very pleased with. Mr. Simonetti office returned all my concerns (and I had a bunch of questions) promptly as promised and his fees were more than fair and for that Mr. Simonetti I thank you very much.

More than pleased and appreciative!
I could not be any happier with Lou representing me! Going through a divorce is tough enough but at the end, I felt that my interests and my assets were protected! My case went all the way to a trial and Lou could not have been more prepared. In the courtroom, he was confident and calm but also tough when the situation called for it. From the beginning of my case to the end, Lou was honest and right in what he thought the outcome would be. As I sat in court, I was very pleased and confident that I had the right lawyer representing me!

Great Experience
Had the unfortunate circumstance whereby I needed the services of a quality divorce firm. I initially met with a highly regarded Manhattan firm. There I ended up being "handled" by a series of junior associates that billed at senior level Manhattan rates yet provided basic service. I was referred to Simonetti and Associates. I was more than pleasantly surprised with the firms boutique feel, senior level attention, and insight from the principle and his very experienced team. Lou S responded to each and every one of my questions and details as if I were his/their only client. i probably drove him a bit crazy with all of my calls and scenarios - but each and every time he provided great advice and guidance. Although the process of divorce is not one I would recommend, in the end Simonetti and Associates was a trusted advisor and fair partner that helped me navigate these confusing and at times emotional waters. In a word - they were GREAT! I know quite a bit about law firms through my business dealings. Simonetti and Associates is a very strong firm with very specific expertise in this area.

Compassionate & Professional
The qualities I was looking for in an attorney were professionalism and compassion, Lou was all of these. He was aggressive but not antagonistic. He got more done for me in 3 months than my previous attorney had in 2 years! He was fair with billing, always returned my phone calls and my emails. I have recommended him to my sister and work colleagues now going through divorces also.

An exceptional firm
I am not a person who offers reviews often, nor am I someone who feels inclined to do so after cursory service or intent. I am writing this review after a time in my life that has been filled with disquietude and sincere emotion. Louis Simonetti, Jr. and his staff have been the most professional, caring, competent and principled individuals one could hope to work with. Obviously, dealing with a law firm and the requisite features of a case contains many undercurrents of anxiety. Simonetti and Associates have been a respite from this position. From Antoinette in office management who never failed to offer insight and assistance, Charlotte M. Betts whose work ethic and sage advice never wavered and of course, Louis F. Simonetti, Jr., who encompasses not only supreme legal acumen but a courteous and accomplished counselor. Every call was returned without fail, documents and administrative pieces were disseminated quickly, the cost was genuinely fair and I was always made aware of every step throughout the process. I would implore those who are beginning down this path of divorce or simply looking for a firm to handle a myriad of issues, to seek out representation from Simonetti & Associates. Aside from the premier status of their deserved reputation, they are people who truly care for those with whom they represent and in my experience, offer a measure of confidence that is wholly unsurpassed. I am thankful to Mr. Simonetti and his entire staff and recommend them in the highest terms without qualification.
