Estefanias’ case
Amy and her staff made possible for me win 50/50 time sharing with my lovely daughter . I am so happy and blessed I hired Amy as my lawyer. She is worth what she cost

Amazing Lawyer!!!
Amy was a great lawyer and took care of all my needs and concerns regarding my divorce very professionally and with lots of care. She provided excellent guidance throughout the process. What I appreciated most was that Amy recognized the need and desire to resolve my case expeditiously, but did so while also ensuring that everything was being done in the best interest of me and my child. I would recommend Amy without a thought to anyone in a similar situation.

The Perfect Package
Mrs. Cosentino wa truly amazing! I have actually recommended her to two other people. I never dreamed I was entitled to all that I received and she says I waited 5 years too long in coming forward! My husband told me, I’d never gets penny from him after he left me at the hospital dying. Wrong!

Amy obtained the outcome I desired. She was always available, essentially 7 days a week. She often responded within minutes, sometimes within seconds, via email to all of my questions and concerns. I recommend her without reservation. She was always punctual and professional.

Professional and Effective
I couldn't have been more pleased with Amy Cosentino's legal services. She was prompt, professional, and immediately effective. She made sure I understood exactly what she was doing every step of the way. I have recommended her to several friends and they have relayed similar experiences.

Amy is my family lawyer and she is the best.
Amy has represented me over the years when I have needed counsel on family law matters. She is the best in her field and I recommend her without hesitation or reservation. It would be a mistake not to hire her.

Understanding and Knowledgable
Mrs. Cosentino is a godsend. She helped calm my concerns and was extremely knowledgeable about our case and our options. She made me feel like a priority and took the time necessary to listen and help me understand what was going on and what I needed to do. Through her help the case against us was dismissed and I was able to keep custody of my beautiful daughter! She was worth every penny and was probably one of the few truly honest lawyers around. I would highly recommend Mrs. Cosentino!
