Won Sole Custody with Kristin
I personally recommend Kristin based on my experience as her client in an extremely unorthodox matrimonial dispute, which ultimately culminated with sole custody being awarded to me. She was very responsive to my inquiries and kept me well informed about reasonable expectations for outcomes.

Honest, honorable & knows the law!
Kristin Arcuri is an exemplary attorney. She is trustworthy, intelligent, professional and compassionate. She works very hard to get the job done in real time without the drama. She will fight for your rights and see the case until the end. I am grateful for her representation. My suggestion is if you need legal help consult Kristin first. It will be the best decision you ever made!

My divorce lawyer
While Ms Arcuri was responsive and knowledgable, my divorce took two years, and I had to prompt her quite a few times to keep things moving along. I didn't feel like she really "fought" for me, I felt like she went through the motions, and I ended up basically giving up the farm just to get rid of my ex, because nothing was happening unless I made concessions. In the end, I got minimal child support, only had my kids half the time, and I basically feel like I could have fared better with just about any other lawyer. And it cost me a fortune. Highly disappointed. Would not recommend her to anyone.

Response from Kristin Arcuri May 12, 2017
I agree that this client's case took longer than typical to finalize. This was due to the procedural and substantive posture taken by this client's spouse. I am sorry that this client believes I did not "fight". My reputation among the courts and my peers is one of aggressive and zealous representation on behalf of my clients. What is not reflected in this review is that the final resolution that was achieved in this matter was acknowledged by all to be fair and reasonable.
