About me

Ms. Fazio is a partner with the law firm of Dentino, Cammarata & Fazio, LLP and is well respected in the legal community for her skills in the areas of matrimonial and family law.  For nearly twenty years, she has assisted clients through the difficult transition of divorce, separation and other sensitive family law matters. Ms. Fazio offers compassionate yet effective legal services on the issues of premarital and post marital agreements, separation, divorce, support of children and spouses, division of marital assets and debts, custody and visitation, same sex marriage issues and dissolution of civil unions. 


 


 Although such family law matters are rarely easy, Ms. Fazio’s experience and competence helps you feel confident and comfortable with your decisions. Ms. Fazio's approach to her cases is to advise clients on both practical and legal aspects of their issues in a cost-effective manner so as to empower clients in making the best decisions. While she understands the benefits to resolving matters out of Court and is "mediation friendly", Ms. Fazio is a zealous litigator and has also represented clients in trials in both Family Court and Supreme Court to protect their interests. She practices in the following counties:  Monroe, Livingston, Ontario and Wayne.


 


 Ms. Fazio also assists clients with personal bankruptcy, wills and other ancillary matters.

  • Mark Claude Chauvin-Bezinque

    I have worked with Jennifer on a significant number of matters. She is an effective advocate for her client with a strong grasp of the law. She does not waste time on frivolous matters and focuses on what is needed to bring the matter to a resolution. She is well respected in the community, including with judges and other attorneys. Even though I have been her opposing counsel on a number of cases and we certainly do not always agree, her professionalism helps move the matter to resolution.
