After my separation, I had no idea what lied ahead of me. I could never have imagined I would be accused of such horrific acts by the woman whom I was married to and had a child with. What I thought would be an amicable divorce, turned into a horrifying and shocking ordeal that has altered my life forever.
I retained Greg LaMonaca four months into my divorce/custody matter and after my first meeting with him and Larry Welsh, Greg had an understanding on my dire situation and had a plan of direction. After my initial meeting with Greg and Larry, I knew I had the right firm representing me.
My case has been, and still is, a very difficult and emotional experience for not only me, but my family and friends. Greg has and still does keep me grounded and helps me get through difficult times. He does this not only as my attorney, but also a friend. That is what separates Greg and his staff from others in the practice of Family Law. They truly care about you and will fight for your legal rights. That has meant a great deal to me and has helped me get through many trying times.
Greg and his staff have always kept me informed of updates and changes involving my case and they always get back to me in a timely manner. After hours and weekends are not uncommon to receive a phone call or e-Mail from one of the staff members. Greg and his team have also worked all hours of the day and on weekends. There is no 9-5 schedule for the attorneys of LaMonaca Law.
Over the course of my divorce/custody matter, there have been twists and turns that even Greg and his staff had not experienced, but had anticipated. One of the best attributes Greg has is in his preparation and planning. Greg prepares for multiple scenarios and always has a plan A, B, C & D. As for my case, I am sure he has reached plans E and F, no kidding! Bottom line is that Greg is prepared for anything.
I am not sure just how many clients LaMonaca Law has, but I am made to feel that I am their only client.
If you are fortunate enough to be represented by LaMonaca Law, you will know the depth of their determination to fight for your cause and see your case through to the ending you envisioned.

Greg was a consummate professional throughout my entire custody case. We walked away with exactly what I asked for and could not be more pleased with the outcome. Highly recommend.

As I read through all of the 5-star reviews on this site, I nod my head as I could write those exact words myself. I don't know how Greg does this for so many clients as I too, thought I was the only one!
I was divorced in 2005 and since went through some extremely nasty allegations, with children suffering parental alienation syndrome and hostile aggressive parenting from ex-spouse and family. I had gone through several recommended and popular (i.e.: WIP advertised) law firms over the years, as well as pro-se representation and had essentially given up, resigned to the fact that "Fathers have no rights". I happened to stumble upon Greg through my research on PAS and HAP. All I can say is that I wish I had found him 10 years ago.
First off, I was shocked when I call the listed number and asked to speak to Greg LaMonaca... "Speaking" That simple attention and first impression carried on through the entire engagement. Greg listened intently, understood and empathized. He was laser-focused on my goals and went over and above to achieve all of them (and then some). He saved the only remaining relationship I had with my youngest of three daughters. He put her and my relationship with her above everything else and did not back down. His staff is great!
I would not hesitate for a second to engage with Greg again and highly recommend.

Remove “YOUR” fears and take control of your future with The Law Offices of Gregory LaMonaca!
My emotions were running rampant, my fears of losing everything I worked 20 years for was controlling my every thought, my hopes were fading and I was a mess. If it was not for Greg and his staff who knows where my family would be now. As soon as you walk into his office and meet with his team your mind and concerns are put at ease. My previous lawyers made me feel somewhat inferior but Greg made me feel like part of his family and that he was going to fight for our rights like only a family member would. Every time I called I got a call back within 30 minutes, every question I had was answered, every concern I had for my family was removed. On day one, Greg clearly laid out the strategy and the path we would be on during my case. It took almost a year and everything he said was accurate. Each bill was clearly itemized and reflected my own records. Additionally, to my complete surprise, as my case ended I received a note from Greg. He had hand written a personal message thanking “me” for trusting him and his team with my case. He expressed some very personal thoughts about our family that made me cry tears of joy. He really knew all of us on a personal level as only a family member would. I often pull out that personal note and reflect on it to bring me back to center. He was thanking me? I owe him and his team the upmost of THANKS.
If you need a family law firm do not hesitate to call Greg and his team. You will quickly realize you did the best thing for yourself and your family the minute you walk into his offices and meet his team. His passion and knowledge for the law shines through! He is a very special person.

Greg LaMonaca and Melissa Towsey have given me hope.
I have three children, work full-time and have an average job as a computer programmer. I live in Chester County, PA.
Through the hard work and dedication of Greg and Melissa, I was able to get primary custody of all three children. I have close to 90% custody. It was not a miracle. It was solely because of Greg and Melissa that the children are as happy and healthy as they are now.
At times, I felt like they treated me as if I was their only client. They responded to every single phone call and email, even if it was in the evening. I was going through a high conflict divorce with a very hostile person.
Although I was very upset and pessimistic, they kept an unwavering focus on what was best for me and the children. They remembered everything about our lives, inside and out. They were both so empathetic and optimistic. Both in court and in conversations with me, they kept reinforcing that I focus on what is best for the children and to let all the little things go.
The children can now have a normal childhood because of everything they have done. We will always be indebted to them. I look forward to the day that I can call them and tell them how the children turned out. They really are the best.
I wasn't sure where to post a review like this, so I figured I'd start here.

Greg LaMonaca is an amazing attorney. There are no words that can quite describe my gratitude to Greg LaMonaca for his professionalism, expertise, work ethic, and candor. Ever since our first meeting, Greg made me feel he genuinely had concerns about my case, wellbeing and family. Throughout the process of my case Greg was very candid with me in regards to the possible outcomes. He also gave great advice and inspiring words of encouragement. Greg is reliable, trustworthy and not to mention his attention to detail and follow up is impeccable. Greg is the definition of a remarkable attorney. I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to meet and have Greg represent me in gaining more custody of my daughters. Thank you, Greg.
For anyone in need of an attorney who truly cares and who will fight for you, I strongly recommend Greg LaMonaca.

Mine has been by all accounts, an exceptionally complex, lengthy, and painful divorce. Mr. Lamonaca and his associates and staff have been guiding me through this process for the last 2 1/2 years, and I am now beginning to see some glimmer of daylight. I certainly wish I had been represented by him from the outset.
Throughout this most painful ordeal, Mr. Lamonaca and Mr Welsh have been steadying and steadfast counsellors and advocates. They have shown an ability to think outside the box when necessary, and have a wide network of outside experts to call on. My ex-spouse has employed a technique known as Parental Alienation Syndrome, about which much has been written. Greg was familiar with this from our very first conversation. I cannot but believe that had he been my attorney from the outset, I would not have been deprived of my children. He is everything a great attorney should be; professional, honest, ethical, wise, and wholly and completely worthy of the trust of his clients. Truly one of the good guys. He has more than earned my trust and gratitude. While my experience with the family court system has been disillusioning to say the least, Greg has been a beacon. God bless him.

Greg LaMonaca had recently asked me to provide input of my expectations of his law firms’ services in representing me with my divorce and custody case. As I sat in front of my computer while I thought of what I wanted to say, the first thing that came to mind was where I would be and what state my life would be in had I not come across the LaMonaca Law firm while searching for a family law firm on the internet.
The LaMonaca law firm was the third family law firm that I had retained. When I first retained an attorney, I actually choose him because I thought my case would be one o0f the “easy” divorce and custody cases, amicable as people would say. And, because his office was five minutes from my home. When I realized that my divorce/custody case was not going to be amicable, I retained another more experienced family law firm only to find that my divorce/custody case was headed for uncharted territory and the law firm representing me was not up to dedicating the time and attention my case needed. Having one attorney working on my case was clearly not going to suffice if I wanted justice for my child and myself.
That is when I made one of the most important phone calls I can remember. I first spoke with Larry Welsh and instantly felt a feeling of relief because he let me explain my current situation regarding my case as well as my legal representation, which I was not happy with. Within two days of that phone conversation with Larry, I had an appointment to meet with him and Greg LaMonaca. After that initial meeting; I retained their services to represent me.
I do not think that anyone on the staff, and certainly not me, thought my divorce/custody case would have developed into what it is today. From having to deal and contest with different organizations and attorneys, to finding new ways to obtain critical information that normally would not be available, to thinking outside of the box, to working countless hours to prepare for the unknown and have multiple plans of attack to be ready for anything, Greg and his entire staff have far exceeded my expectations in their services and representation of me.
What has impressed me most about the firm and its representation of me is not the legal knowledge and professionalism, which the entire staff clearly has, it has been the way I have been treated and communicated with by the entire firm. From Christina and Pat when they answer the phone to Greg, Larry, Melissa and Kristy being available at just about anytime I need their services. And, I am sure that there are others that have been involved that I am not even aware of. Greg and his staff always find the time to communicate with me, not taking days to get back to me. That in itself is a huge comfort as there has been so much uncertainty involving my case. To put it simply, Greg and his staff have made me feel like I am their only client.
I have never had any legal issues, never had the need for an attorney. Now, I find myself in the fight of my life to save my child from emotional and psychological trauma as well as clearing my name of some horrific false allegations. My life has completely changed in the last 21 months as I have lost my wife and child, my job of 13 years and my home that my daughter grew up in. I am in the process of starting my life over again. This is a difficult ordeal for anyone to have to go through and Greg has been supportive and understanding though it all. Most important, Greg has believed in me from the very beginning. Greg has not only given me legal advice, but advice on life itself while I go through this very difficult time. I am not just a client; I never have felt like just a client. Greg and his staff have made me feel like part of their family. That feeling is invaluable.
To you and the entire staff at the Law Office of Gregory P. LaMonaca;
A VERY BIG THANK YOU
