Ongoing
So far Mr. Quiñónez have done an exceptional job trying to get my daughter and I the peace that we need. This is an ongoing case and there is no victory for anyone! The kids always get the worst of it. But with Mr. Quiñónez attention to detail and dedication, the interest of the child is what will prevail at the end.

Very Efficient Staff!
I had a great experience with Carlos as my attorney even though I was out of state. He and his team set up everything with me remotely by phone and conferencing. Very efficient, they ultimately achieved the outcome I hoped for.

Custody for dad.
Ok, let me get the blunt part of the whole custody process out of the way first: it is not cheap, it is not quick, you need to be convinced of this, foremost. Also you need to be very involved with your case and your proof and every detail. There is no other way to do this, you're going against the system; to do this you need to be very invested, involved and you need one of the best guys out there, Mr Quinonez. What I liked about him is that from the beginning he told me I had a case and took me in, he'll be honest about your chances. Be patient. It took me 3 years to get to this; this is not an easy process and sometimes court dates get moved and/or court dates are too far in-between, this is not a fast process, Family Court is overburden as it is, be very patient and although you will be billed only for the time used on your case, you know the money is being used in a productive way, and although it isn't super expensive, you need to be ready. You got to know, your case is not the Court's or Mr. Quinonez only case, but at least he and his team will accommodate your questions or comments in a timely manner, either by the MyCase app/site, by phone or you can schedule a meeting with him. This guy is very dedicated. We sometimes worked on getting ready on off hours and even weekends. Can't stress this enough. Be involved with your case. Mr. Quinonez will learn almost every detail of your case by heart, but ultimately you are the one providing him with the "ammunition to go to war" of sorts, this way he will have a much better way of doing the "lawyer thing" with facts, statements, text messages, pictures, videos, any kind of proof..he's very smart and intuitive, but you need to feed him of all these things, that should be obvious. Don't lie. Mr. Quinonez is empathetic, I got the feeling he has to believe in you and your case in order to take it. I feel that's a good thing, seems like a principle thing, not a money thing. Do not try to produce false evidence, it will be counterproductive and may affect your case deeply. Mr. Quinonez comes to life in the court room. He has a quiet demeanor, he's not overly aggressive, but he doesn't need to. In court you will see how all those things you gathered up for your case and him, come to life on how he exposes them and links them together; his intuition and how he gauges the Judge, the other party and my evidence and even myself, frankly impressed me a lot. In a nutshell, he will fight for you and your cause, he will be very dedicated and smart and compassionate.

Very satisfied
Mr.Quinonez gave me the impression of an honest and no nonsense professional. He was kind and apologized for the treatment I received from his staff. I liked that he did not criticize his staff, that to me showed class. I am very much considering hiring Mr. Quinonez. I want someone to fight for what I feel I fairly deserve, not a hothead.

Perfect Attorney
Mr. Quinones and Yvonne have helped us through some very difficult family issues and did not hesitate to take us before the judge to get our case expedited. They are always very quick to respond and provide advice regardless of if it is in our favor or not. This is my second time using Mr. Quinones and I wouldn't think of using a different attorney. He is always my first choice if the need arises.

Mr. Quinonez helped us straighten out our mess
Even though there were some discrepancies in our leasing contract, we were able to finish the eviction process with someone who was renting our house, thanks to the help of Mr. Quinonez. He got this mess straightened out for us. We are very happy with his help.

Mr. Quinonez took great care of my case
Mr. Quinonez took great care of my case. You can see the effort he puts in. The night before I had to appear in court, he made sure to call me to go over everything one more time and make sure all my questions were answered. I was very satisfied with his work. My case worked out in my favor and everything turned out great!
