100/10
If I can give 1 million stars I would. 10 is just not enough. I was initially referred to Frank by a Facebook friend for a tough custody battle, taking her advice on retaining Frank for a custody matter was one of the best advice in life I have followed. My custody battle was nothing short of easy. And a case some attorneys even declined to take on because of how much effort needed . Frank without a doubt fought and fought for what I was seeking, something I really actually thought would never happen in this action . But what I thought was IMPOSSIBLE he made POSSIBLE . Other than his diligent work , communication is beyond the scope of stars given. And I am by far not the easiest client, and probably a very anxious one who finds myself corresponding after work hours and Frank always responds . Frank is very professional, great communication , affordable . Thank you again !

Solved my terrible divorce in 3 months
I had 2 prior divorce lawyers over 7 years of a terrible and stressful divorce. The opposing attorney Was using delays and dozens of court appearances as a way to harrass me while making false accusations on a monthly basis and making me miss excessive amounts of work. They did this because I am a physician and they knew it would cause a lot of hardship in my practice. They tried to pressure me into signing over our marital home to my ex to secure a divorce. I found Mr. Trovato and in a matter of months he got the divorce decree which now allows me to live my life in peace with my new family and 2 yound children. He was extremely well prepared when we had to appear for a 3 hour trial and we won . The opposing attorney was extremely well connected and seemed to get whatever she wanted in the courthouse. Every other lawyer I had seemed to defer to whatever this attorney wanted until Mr. Trovato took us to trial successfully. He is a gem and I highly recommend him.

The Man, The Myth, The Legend
I have had Frank since 2020 as my representative and he doesn't back down from a fight. He is very direct on what he needs and isn't afraid to let you know that. This man has helped me maintain physical custody of my son. Through ups and downs I have been in with the custody agreement. He is willing to look in the analytical stand point and his ability to see what we need to do to win is impeccable. The Man, The Myth, The Legend, Frank Trovato is the lawyer you need in your corner.

Childy custody relocation
Attorney Trovato has been helpful since our consultation in March. He helped my children and I legally leave PA to NH to leave a toxic situation. He was thorough, communicated constantly with me, and answered all my legal questions and concerns. We had an extra step to add to my legal proceedings and he graciously helped us through it all. To say I would have been able to do this alone, is a lie and I was blessed to find someone willing to listen to my ventings about empty threats I was receiving from the other party. Thank you Frank for all you have done and continue to do! I will be referring all my friends and acquaintances to him for family court issues. You can not go wrong.

Custody case
Frank J. Trovato was an amazing lawyer. He really helped me out in a desperate time in my life. My daughters mother was trying to take my rights away and move away with my daughter. But when I hired Frank , he did is lawyer magic. And not only did he stop her from moving away but I was granted primary custody. Not only that but he is truly a good man and does the right thing. I can't thank him enough . That man really saved me. So I highly suggest you hire him.

Custody Case
It is without a doubt the best decision I made for the custody case of my children was hiring Frank Trovato. With the hard work and dedication demonstrated throughout the entirety of this lengthy court battle, Mr. Trovato was able to make sure justice was served for my children and I. He is very confident in what he does, as he should be, being a master of his craft and executing that flawlessly for my case. I would highly recommend hiring Frank Trovato to anyone who is in need of representation and I will forever be thankful to him for what he has done for my family.

The best that money can buy!
I had a trial date set in family court and didn't know where to turn. By some grace of God I found Frank Trovato. I was stressed to the max and needed help fast. I made my initial contact call and little did I know all of my stress would be taken care of the very next morning when Mr. Trovato returned my call. This man is amazing at everything he does. From all of the leg work to returning calls and messages to hearings and trials there is no I left without a dot and all t's are crossed. There were even many things we hadn't discussed that I was questioning myself about but when those issues came to light Frank had already tackled all of those issues. I've never seen someone more prepared and in control of that courtroom leaving no stone unturned. His services were extremely affordable for what I needed and his professionalism speaks volumes for his character and integrity. I've used many lawyers in the past who collect your payment and do very little work after. My trial ended last week and Frank is still in contact with me following up to keep me informed about pertinent information with my case. Mr. Trovato listens to all of your concerns and immediately tackles any issues that may arise. I couldn't be happier with the services he provided and continues to provide. Mr. Trovato I thank you from the bottom of my heart and will highly recommend your firm to any and all who may need your help. Way to set the bar! Thanks again!

Custody of my son
I contacted Mr. Travato's office for a custody matter and hired him as attorney. The office staff was very helpful and Mr. Travato had contacted me right away. We discussed my concerns and how we would move forward. Mr. Travato answered all my questions and was very supportive through the process. After 5 years of chaos finally my son is home and can be cared for properly!! I would recommend Mr. Travato to anyone having custody issues.

Extraordinarily Thorough
Frank Trovato went above and beyond in exceeding my expectations. His research of my case, knowledge of any and all strategies and possible outcomes, as well as his generosity of his time and expertise make him an exceptional choice of a counselor/attorney. I would more than highly recommend his services, especially in highly complex and highly contested or litigious cases.

Phenomenal Results
I came to Trovato devastated with my custody situation. At the first call, he took the time to understand my case and gave me some phenomenal advice and put my heart at ease. He explained the legal side and options and even when I did not understand, he would patiently explain it again. He was easy to access and was mindful to my financial situation. When I hired him, I knew I was in Great hands. The process was smooth and fairly quick. The results were exactly what we spoke in and exactly how we planned it to be. I was extremely pleased with how he handled my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs a true attorney by their side.

Frank genuinely cares for his clients, very down to earth guy and is driven to get results. He always gave his all at every meeting we’ve had and represented me, as I was trying to get custody of my daughter and get more visitation. He made sure the outcome of my custody battle got the best outcome that it had the potential to be. 5 out 5 stars! Thank you Frank!

Best Interest Of The Child Success thanks to Frank Trovato
After 5 years of a high conflict custody case, I fired my local attorney with 40 years of experience and political ties to the Courthouse after numerous conciliatory hearings, court ordered therapists, custody evaluations, reunification therapy and the continued physical and emotional abuse sustained by my children at the hands of their father and unfortunately a Court system that had failed to listen to them. I hired Frank to represent me at an evidentiary trial where I was being accused of contempt and had filed my own Motion seeking a modification of custody in asking for sole legal and physical custody of my teenage children. Frank was honest, compassionate, attentive, diligent and well prepared from our first meeting until we went to trial. He commanded the courtroom in direct questioning and was a presence to be reckoned with at trial before a brand new Judge assigned to the family court. Not knowing the precedent this new Judge would set in one of his first custody trials was a concern but Frank was confident, presented the facts and exposed my ex-husband in questioning. After a 4 hour trial and a month of waiting, we received a 15 page Order detailing every prong of the best interest of the child statute and was awarded FULL legal and physical custody. Frank did for me in a month what an attorney with 40 years experience couldn’t get done in 5 years. Frank is well versed on family court law and understands what teenagers today deal with academically and in their athletic pursuits on a collegiate level. He has a personal approach with his clients which is very much appreciated. He was a text away and always responded. Having 25 years of experience myself as a paralegal, I can tell you Frank is the real deal and he will get “the best interest of the child“ result your family deserves. I can’t thank him enough for the relief he has brought my family.

The absolute best
I worked with Frank for my custody case & from day one he treated me as if it were his own family he was representing. The level of trust I had in him is incomparable, and the level of attention he gave me made me feel as though I was his only client. Frank’s experience in family law & vast understanding of the legal system gave me the comfort & confidence I needed when fighting to protect the most important thing in my life, best interest of my son. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer. He does not miss a beat, and is as genuine as they come. Honesty, work ethic & sheer intelligence is hard to come by as a package deal, Frank provides them all. Having to deal with a custody conflict is never pleasant, but having Frank represent me made this high-stake battle extremely conquerable. Having him in my corner was my solace. Forever grateful. I would highly recommend him & will continue to use his services.

The best of the best!
I hired Frank Trovato 2 years ago on a family court case I didn’t know what I really was getting into. But the moment he explain what would be the out come I immediately trusted him I live in Florida the court case was in Pennsylvania so with closed eyes he guide me thru the process. Told me what could happen and what to expect. He was a man of every single word he said and just like that he made it happen. I am forever grateful because of him I seen my child. Then again after 2 years and still keeping in contact with mr. Trovato i had to re-retained him once again. I needed a small but huge favor from him. Spoke to him about the situation he explained the process and in less then 24hr he had answers and results. In less then a week I had everything resolved. He is reliable trustworthy and worth the time. I highly recommend him!
