If you read any reviews before you hire this law firm, please take the time to read this one! I so desperately wish I had instead of just trusting a close contact referral. I had hired Anne Vecchio in March of 2021. It is February 2022 now as I write this. Back in March of 2021 she had helped me to file for full custody of my son. It was a straight forward case, I just wanted a parenting agreement in writing, as well as obtain child support. Over the summer we worked on getting the parenting plan straightened out, something the father and I worked on together with her advice of how to word some things. This was finalized in October of 2021. I also had completed my financial affidavit back in August of 2021 and sent that to the law firm. She then told me she never received these items. Fortunately I had made copies before I mailed them. I made copies again, and sent them certified mail this time in October 2021. Starting in November 2021, she had both parties financials, as well as the signed and initialed parenting plan.
In November she continued the case in court, same for December and January. I never received an answer as to why. At this point TOO much money had been spent and I was getting frustrated that such a straight forward case had been continued so many times, when we had the papers done and finalized by October 2021. Mind you, every month another statement would come between $100-$300 when basically nothing had been worked on.
Finally in January of 2022, I had fired Anne as my lawyer and she filed to come off the case. At our court date on 02/10/2022 the judge acknowledged her coming off the case as my attorney, and I went to file my motion to appear without counsel going forward, as well as submit the financial affidavits of BOTH parties. Something that should have been done by Anne back in November of 2021. When I was filing, I asked if the parenting plan had been submitted (which she said it had been 10 minutes prior in front of the judge).. and to no surprise, no record of our parenting plan was in the court system. So I filed that myself as well. It's also not a good look when the woman behind the window asked who my attorney had been, and the look in her eyes when I named Anne Vecchio.
Basically, if you want to waste thousands of dollars, and get your court cases continued over and over... go with this law office. As a single mother when I originally filed, I am very disappointed of how I was taken advantage of by this law firm.
