Great resource for family law and estate planning
Lissette Crescimone was an incredible resource for family law as well as trust and estate planning needs. She was extremely knowledgeable on all the issues we raised. Not only did Lissette work hard and provide time-sensitive assistance, but she was always professional. I’d highly recommend Lissette.

Ms. Crescimone is worth her weight in gold!
Ms. Crescimone is worth her weight in gold! From the very first time I called her office I felt a sense of ease speaking to her as I had so many questions and it was a very emotional and difficult time and wasn’t sure who to trust. I had consulted with a few lawyers who took forever to get one the phone for a brief consultation with very poor bedside manner , and a good friend had recommended Ms. Crescimone so I called. She answered every email, text, and call on the same day. She represented me throughout my entire divorce and negotiated a settlement far more than what I even planned to ask for. She was litigious when she had to be and compromising at other times. In the end we didnt have to even go to trial and she saved me thousands in doing so. I’ve seen friends debilitated by long drawn out divorces and the stress and financial distress it causes. Having a good lawyer on my side fighting for me and my children was so reassuring and a breath of fresh air. I am in a good place now thanks to Lissette Crescimone and she will be my forever attorney, that is for sure.

Response from Lissette Crescimone March 30, 2021
Cristina, Thank you for giving me the opportunity to help you through your divorce. Like I told you when we first met, I am a huge advocate of negotiating before litigating. It's such a more useful tactic that better serves my clients in not dragging out an already taxing divorce experience and in preserving funds for all parties involved. I commend you for being brave and trusting my advice. Co parenting can be a long road, but I am forever in your corner. Wishing you and your family continued success!

The BEST
The absolute best resource for estate planning, divorce- just family law in general! She answered all my questions thoroughly and in a way I could easily understand. She walked me through a messy divorce with grace and ease and then helped me revise and update my will and trusts! I would recommend this lawyer to ANYONE!!!
Response from Lissette Crescimone March 30, 2021
Ms. Carolyn, it was my pleasure to work with you. People often find divorce challenging enough that they can't tackle the other legal needs implicated after finalizing a divorce such as creating or updating their Will or Trust or general estate planning documents. I'm so glad I could service you and I hope you find some peace knowing that your children will be forever protected through your estate plan. Wishing you continued success!

Awesome Attorney
Attorney Crescimone is awesome in taking her time to answer all questions and concerns regarding our case. After calling numerous attorneys regarding a divorce and other issues, she returned my call the same day which indicated her dedication and professionalism, so we hired Mrs. Crescimone. Very resourceful as well with a vast amount of information and network to help you in just about any situation. Very happy with her taking her time to answer my questions and confidence she provides. Honestly, most attorneys would not answer simple questions Lissette gladly did patiently. Even with something ad delicate as a divorce I was able to move forward confidently knowing my Attorney, Mrs. Crescimone was looking out for my best interest. Highly Recommended.

great guidance
Lissette is the attorney that is handling my case with the law office of Juliana Gaita. Lissette's articulate response and sage advice have helped me figure out where to go next with my case. I highly recommend this law office.
