Professional and Successful
Tammy Arquette has been my attorney for five years and counting. She has been professional and confident in the word of the law, during multiple appearances at family court, as well as the numerous times she spoke with me about my case. Tammy has always been available to return emails I have sent to her regarding my case. She spent an abundance of time working on my case, consulting with me and preparing me for trial. Tammy is about the LAW and what is RIGHT. Tammy went above and beyond to represent me after a wrongful decision on my family court case. She spent an exuberant amount of time preparing my case to present to the NYS Appellate Division. Tammy was successful! Also went on to win the new trial that was granted.

Professional and Efficient
Tammy is a very effective family lawyer. She gets directly to the point and that resulted in favorable results for my children and myself. Hopefully this is the last time in my life that I have to deal with a divorce (knock on wood) However, if I ever find myself in the same situation I will resort to Ms. Arquette in a heartbeat.

Fast, Professional & Charming.
She assisted me with a traffic matter and helped me through the process smoothly, though I know I was a bit pestering with all my questions. Highly recommended for any matters. Fast, professional and charming.

Horrible results
Tammy was our bankruptcy lawyer. No one wants to ever file for bankruptcy however life forced our hand. This started in 2017 when we hired Tammy . We paid our fee, took all the necessary counseling and went to court. All seemed to go well until 3 years later when we learned Tammy had never filed all the paperwork or paid the necessary fee. After contacting her on more than one occasion to have her sort this out it was still not done. We had to contact the court and the judge set up a hearing for us where he told Tammy when she would complete the paperwork filing and that SHE would pay the fees. When it was all settled my credit report now shows the bankruptcy was not filed until June of 2020. We had been working hard for years even prior to our initial filing to correct and rebuild our credit. I would not use her again and we are sorry we did the first time.

Very unprofessional
She was acquired thru another professional within the same field to finalize some paperwork and she took on the task with compensation. She filed the paperwork with the state and the state rejected it due to 2 conflicting wordings. We asked her to revise and resubmit and after multiple phone calls and emails she refused to respond. Because of the complicity of the paperwork, we even offer to pay her extra, instead of starting over and she would not respond. Regardless of her intentions, is was very unprofessional to just ignore us and take our money without finishing the job.

Terrible Service
Tammy overcharged me for every little thing (like $200 to write a letter). She did not return phone calls in a timely manner, and made no headway in my divorce case in 7 months, so I hired another attorney. She even charged me another $200 as I was walking out the door just to gather my paperwork. Disgraceful!
