Worth the price
I am going through a very difficult custody battle, and Mr. Rovito has been beyond helpful in ending the manipulation and prevention of a equitable resolution. He very quickly shut down the lying by the opposing body, and has helped me to get my daughter back. I am going to continue to use him going forward and I would recommend him to anyone that wants a no-nonsense bulldog on your side.

Divorce lawyer with great communication skills. Excellent with numbers. Respectful, honest and approachable.
Michael Rovito helped me through the most trying time in my life with patience, kindness, honesty and professionalism. When I first met Michael for a consultation I stressed the importance of hiring not only a “good” communicator but a “great” one. He did not disappoint. Communication was always front and center. Michael returned my emails and calls in a reasonable time frame. He addressed my specific needs and concerns reducing my anxiety. In my opinion what sets Michael apart from other attorney's is his superior ability in the field of numeracy. He is swift with solving number problems, estimating and noticing patterns which I believe to be imperative when trying to settle a divorce. When opposing counsel brought in an accountant to dispute an issue Michael knew exactly what to ask. It was evident that Michael was not intimidated in the slightest and his financial background was obvious. I have witnessed great divorce lawyers that are mediocre with numbers. It’s not enough. They need to be in the realm of outstanding. Michael will work hard for you. He is approachable, calming and respectful. I will miss his witty personality and will always be grateful for making a stressful situation more manageable.

Within less than 24 hours of our sudden deadline superhero Attorney Rovito came to our rescue
On this occasion, words fall short of being able to adequately and sincerely express our most heartfelt gratitude to Attorney Michael Rovito on behalf of myself, my family and my team. He is our hero. He is not only an attorney of exceptional talent, he is, as well, a gentleman of great quality and thoughtful consideration in every sense of the word. His stellar professionalism and remarkable sense of duty left upon me an impression that not only shall I not easily forget but I will, hence forth, continue to remember as future legal projects present themselves to me and I am in need of exceptional talent to see them through to victory. If one can view the crisis, the legal situation that we presented to him, as the final battle in a long war that would ultimately determine and hold the fate of others in his hands with this singular moment, attorney Rovito went above and beyond the call of duty and what was required of him to provide clarity and remedy in the midst of chaos and ultimately give us the victory we long had sought. He carried out his work with not only military-like precision but with the utmost care and attention to detail, qualities of which I value highly. Our story of meeting attorney Rovito in itself was a miracle, and here I must pause to give credit to the most wonderful and incredibly talented Sandra Eckard of MacElree Harvey. Had it not been for Ms. Eckard's effortlessly fast thinking and flawless coordinations, we would have not been connected to attorney Rovito in time. The matter for which we sought the assistance of Attorney Rovito was extremely time sensitive with what seemed to be a nearly impossible deadline. The very Monday night before our deadline was set to occur on Tuesday, we received an unexpected call from him late in the evening after business hours and he stayed up that night to assist us and make all assurances that we had what we needed for our deadline early the next morning. It is with my highest regards, I reccomend Attorney Rovito as an extraordinary attorney for any legal needs or projects you may have forthcoming. You are in exceptional hands. Attorney Rovito - that night, when you stayed up for us, when you achieved what seemed to be the impossible, at that moment when hopes seemed lost, you changed forever the lives of myself, my family and my team and forever altered the course of our forthcoming history, our future. It is my wish that on behalf of myself, my family and my team, you will do us the honor of accepting our most sincere thanks and our gratitude to you for the service, the victory, the miracle, you bestowed upon us and brought to us. We commend you sir and we wish that you shall achieve all the goals you strive to achieve during your legal career, not only for yourself but for your clients, your firm, your family and your community at large, which we have no doubts that you will. With my most sincere regards and respects, A

There is no other way to to explain attorney Rovito except to say he's brilliant. His ability to negotiate and litigate is unsurpassed. He is witty and friendly, but make no mistake he turns on the fire if things get to that point. Attorney Rovito is the man you want in your corner, and if you are on the opposite side of the equation, prepare to be dismantled.

Made a complicated situation much easier.
My case had a lot of moving parts and pieces, that evolved over time when Michael took over my case. He put everything in order and by priorities which streamlined my case also being conscious of keeping my cost down. Also, he puts a lot of attention to the details always taking the time to review all the briefs and correspondence. Would highly recommend Michael to anyone!

I would definelty hire Michael again in all future legal situations, 6 stars if possible
A Must READ!!! I was filling for divorce after being a stay at home mom with 4 children many years. I was lost, scared and confused. Michael immediately made me comfortable, safe and out for Me and my children's wellbeing. He handle both my divorce as well as custody of the children. in which with his hard work I got everything I wanted in personal property, full primary custody, alimony and child support. He knows the laws very well. always available to me when I had questions and concerns. But on another note, I still go back to him with legal advice in other circumstances I've come across since then. If you want true legal representation Michael Rovito is the lawyer, not only a need but you want on your side. One word EXELLENT!!

An attorney who has your back!
Michael, met and consulted with me regarding my soon to be divorce and educated me on my options that I could take in the course of seperating / filling to obtaining a final decree by the court. He left no stone unturned and was extremely thorough in making sure all of my assets were protected and also assisted in coaching me on what I should be doing to protect myself in the interim until seperation was achieved, as well as letting me know where we were in the process toward filling a final divorce settlement and receiving a decree. Within 90 days I was granted a decree of divorce, and he had my back the whole time through this most difficult time I had ever faced in my life. Most people think they can do this on their own, but there are way too many things that can be overlooked, and without the right wording / legal terminology in your settlement agreement, you could leave yourself open to future litigation/backlash/loss. Michael went through and explained each and every line of the settlement agreement and why it was important to word and structure it that way. In this time of darkness and pain from the loss and betrayal of a loved one, it is of the utmost importance to have someone thinking and looking out for you. Michael did just that for me and I highly recommend Michael and their firm.

Maybe a Fine lawyer, but not your advocate
Michael might be a good lawyer, but he is clearly inexperienced and did not acts as my advocate. He took his lead from opposing counsel and pushed me to agree with whatever they wanted. When I raised this issue he treated me more like opposition than a client. I did not feel like he was my advocate or supported me. I hope this is simply his inexperience, but right now I wouldn't recommend him to anyone.
