The best attorney in Town!
The best attorney in town! Paul took my case for a relocation with my teenage daughter. The case was hard because my ex husband refused to give me permission to take my daughter to another state. The attorney fought very hard to win and he did! Very responsive, professional, kind, and reasonable. Im glad that I found Mr. Paul Gentile. Strongly recommended.

Great lawyer
Mr. Gentile helped me 3 times over the past 15 years with divorce and custody issues. He is a very experienced attorney. Most of all he is understanding and easy to work with. I would never hire any other attorney beside Paul Gentile.

Very bad experience with this lawyer
I hired Paul to help me with my divorce , he is very expensive and I paid him way too much and he didn't do anything. He never calls with the updates and when I call he is never in the office and he will return my phone call after couple of days with no further info . He took couple of months just to file my divorce and then nothing . I got tired of it . Please be very careful , think twice before you hire him .

Response from Paul Gentile September 21, 2016
It is unfortunate that the client's spouse and attorney did not respond to our requests. We file the petitions in a timely manner and do everything we can to move the case along. Our hourly rates at $225 are lower than most attorney's rates. It is difficult to control the other party and their lawyer so occasionally a case is extended beyond our control. We are willing to discuss any issues with fees and try to be available as much as possible when not in court.
