Bar None
Natalie and her paralegal are bar none. I have heard from several others of their frustrations with their attorneys. Attorneys that do not communicate, attorneys that get nothing done yet keep asking for more money. Attorneys that do not fight for the paying client, but on the contrary, seem to be favoring the opposing side. None of these were the case with Natalie. She and her paralegal were caring, empathetic, reassuring, intelligent, professional, extremely knowledgeable, and if that weren’t enough, made me feel as if I were their only client the entire year+ that I worked with them. They never made me feel like I had asked one too many questions or that their very busy schedule was beyond their taking the time I needed. Natalie always communicated within 24 hours and 99% of the time, responded the same day. She was continually working on my case to move it forward. She was always a step ahead of me, consistently communicating what the next steps were. If I asked her a question, I never got a short, pacifying answer. She not only would answer my question, but explained the law around the answer, what our options were, and how to move the case forward. She was impressively creative in the ways she came up with to handle each issue that arose in the divorce process. When Natalie said she was going to do something, she did it. Without fail. I don’t believe I could have ever gotten better representation than I did with Natalie. She fought for me as if she were fighting for herself. She conducted herself in a highly professional and knowledgeable manner before the judge and with the opposing counsel. I could not be happier with the outcome – an outcome I wouldn’t have come close to obtaining had I not been represented by her. Honestly, I haven’t one negative thing to say. Natalie is the whole package and then some. I will forever be so grateful that Natalie represented me. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Best Law Firm
I was in a very difficult situation when I had to reach out for legal help. Natalie M. Ceroni and her team got recommended to me and I,m very pleased that she and her team was representing me in my case. From beginning to the end she explained every step in detail, supported me in making decisions and advised me step by step. Choosing her and her team in representing my case to the court was the best ever happened to me. She was fighting for my "Right" from day one. Thank you Natalie M. Ceroni. I highly recommend Natalie M. Ceroni in Family, Child custody and or Child support issues.

We are forever grateful for you! Best Attorney out there!!!!
Natalie and Stefano Ceroni are two of the most Extraordinary Attorney’s I have ever met! I have worked with both of them in two separate child custody issues. They were amazing from the beginning, experienced and extremely caring and compassionate. In my most recent situation I worked with Natalie; during trail she was fierce, direct and to the point. I needed an attorney with a strong voice, powerful, not afraid to get up there and state the facts and fight for my rights and child’s rights. Natalie understood my position and was able to convey that very clearly to the Judge, which resulted in the judgment for me. Natalie guided me through what I thought was the impossible at the time, a very rough and heart breaking family case to go through. We battled this case for almost 2 years, and within those two years I had to work with DCS, best interest attorneys, numerous detectives, and a handful of different city police departments. The only reason I got through this trail was because of Natalie Ceroni and the support of her husband Stefano Ceroni. Natalie’s efforts will have a profound effect on me for the rest of my life and more importantly the life of my child. I am so grateful she represented and guided me through this very challenging, rough period of my life. I sincerely hope no one ever goes through what I did, but if child custody issues fall upon you I would highly and without hesitation recommend Natalie and Stefano Ceroni; they are the Integrity team! I cannot thank you enough! Stephanie O.

Not what I wanted to hear, but u have to respect honesty and integrity in a lawyer.
Things did not work out for me, and I was told some things I didn't want to hear. I thought something she did was unfair. I have learned ,since then that she was within her rights, and instead of getting mad, Mrs. ceroni clarified it for me in a very professional manner. I gave her a 5 for being an honest lawyer with integrity and a willingness and want to help her clients beyond just the dollar. This is coming from someone who didn't hear what they wanted to hear and didn't get what they wanted. I think I should give her a ten instead of the five because of her honesty and integrity.

Great working with Natalie through my premarital representation
Natalie and her husband did a great job working with me through all the details and signing of my documents and explained every step of the process. She kept following up and ensured I got the needed documents singed. Thanks for all the help.

Child Support Modification, Child Emancipation, Private School, State of Arizona Title IV-D
I am very satisfied with the service and expertise that Natalie provided during my experience engaging her to represent my Child Support Modification case with the State of Arizona Title IV-D Program. My case was an entanglement with the State of Arizona Title IV-D Program, emancipation of my oldest daughter, remaining Child Support obligation to my youngest only son, and the intractable Children’s mother’s position regarding Private School. Throughout the many years of dealing with my Children’s mother on such issues as Child Support and Child Visitation I have had marginal experiences with several attorneys. Not so with Natalie, from the state she took a personal approach with my case, and clearly apprized me of the realities of the possible outcomes. I was included and advised in all major decisions with my case, and more importantly should my case go in front of a Commissioner what might be the possible outcomes. Natalie worked to get the best possible results given the difficulty of working with the Children’s mother and the restrictive and structured State of Arizona Title IV-D Program. My case was ultimately settled without resolving to a Commissioners whimsical decision. In final closing, Natalie returned phone calls and emails in a timely manner, treated me with respect, was considerate of my finances, and provided valuable strategies that ultimately resulted in a satisfying compromise of a Child Support obligation that I am able live within. Without question I would recommend Natalie as a very qualified and competent Attorney. Scott

Competent and Helpful
I used Natalie for my pre/post divorce counsel. She was extremely realistic and helpful at every step during my divorce. Her timely response to my concerns and questions during and after my final disillusion of divorce are most appreciated. I trust her judgment and her recommendations. I feel that she is very interested in doing what is best for her client and will not nickel and dime you in the process. She is easy to work with and does her due diligence to fight for your rights in Family Court. I highly recommend Natalie to any person finding them self in the unfortunate position of litigation for family matters.

WOW!
After having many missteps in the family court arena I felt that all was lost and that I would be relegated to uncle dad status for eternity. Then I met Natalie, she worked with me to get a plan together and she left no stone unturned. Court filing were always done early and with exceptional legal references and style. Phone calls and email were always returned within a day even on the weekends. I felt before we went to court in the hallway that no matter what happens in the trial I was more than please with what she had done for me. In the courtroom she took it to a whole other level. Her demeanor in court was sharp and well executed and had a complete handle on the room from the judge to the opposition. I know have my son 50 percent of the time and he is getting a great education, in no small part to the efforts of Natalie. In this crazy court system that we have, having Natalie Cerone on your team is a must have. If you are looking for: Drive Vigor Professionalism Will to Win Knowledge Hire Natalie before your opposition does you don't want to go against her.

Amazing!
I am extremely grateful to have had Natalie as my attorney in a very unpleasant divorce/child custody case. My ex-husband and I did not see eye to eye when it came to the best interest of our infant child. My biggest concern was my child's safety. Natalie devoted her time and efforts to achieve that goal in doing what was best for my child. Natalie was always accessible to answer all questions and address concerns. Natalie is very professional and knowledgeable. I always felt comfortable having her by my side in court. She was really the best advocate I could have asked for. I would highly recommend Natalie Ceroni.

Natalie is a life saver!
I was going through a very hard time with the split up of my family and I wasn't on top of my game with all the court chaos. I met with Natalie And explained my situation and she gave me the best and worst situation, but never promised me anything she wasn't 100% sure about. She kept me up to date on court dates and things I needed to do for my case. She was very concerned about my case and had a passion for what she was doing. There were times I would not get things done for progression of my case because I was overwhelmed with all the drama. Natalie gave me advice and hope to move forward and not quit and to keep pushing forward. I ended up getting what I was asking for and cant be more happy with the outcome. I've already recommended several friends to Natalie and couldn't of asked for a better job!

Natalie is a blessing to anyone dealing with family law matters in the state of Arizona
I would highly recommend Natalie Ceroni to anyone looking for assistance with family law. I believe Natalie is a blessing to anyone dealing with family law matters in the state of Arizona because unlike other family law attorneys she geniuely cares about your case. What sets Natalie apart from other Attorneys is her integrity, responsiveness, and professionlism. My case was extremely compelx and Natalie never lost focus on the facts and always communicated with me to ensure I was up to speed on everything. I hope to never have another family law matter but if that ever occurs I know without a doubt she is the person I would hire to represent me.

Highly recommended!!
In such an unfortunate situation, Natalie was still great to work with from the first meeting until everything was finalized. She was extremely responsive, always kept me informed, and did everything she could to help me through the process. There was never a time where I was concerned that she was not looking out for my best interest, and I felt that I could trust her advice and suggestions. I would highly recommend Natalie and their firm.

Amazing Lawyer!
Natalie was everything you could ever want in a lawyer; proactive, thorough, attentive, and fair. This is just to name a few great qualities, but I could go on and on. Nobody wants to deal with court and family law issues, but she made the whole experience pretty painless and smooth. She was very clear about reasonable expectations, and never once did I have to follow up and check in. She was always on top of my case, calling me to make sure everything was in order and prepared. She was amazing!

She gives lawyers a good name! The best family lawyer in Scottsdale!
I can't say enough good things about Natalie Crosby-Ceroni at Korbin Steiner & Marquis. I have a difficult, what seems to be never-ending family court case that used to keep me up at night. It doesn't anymore. Natalie and the whole firm got my back. Family Court is emotional. And I'm an emotional guy about it because it involves my son. I'm pretty calm now that I have Natalie on my side. She's wicked smart, and can see beyond the emotion and BS in all of the paperwork. She's keen on reading the Court, the people involved and like a world class chess player seeing the next move before it happens. She's looking out for me, and my son, and oddly enough from my prior experience with lawyers, she looks out for my money, which is nice since I'm not the Bill Gates of Family Court. It is the best money I've ever spent in my life, and the first time I've looked forward to handing over my hard earned dollars to a lawyer, and I've had a few! I can honestly say that I am more than happy having Natalie and the team at Korbin Steiner & Marquis as my, and my son's, advocates in this complicated, sometimes nasty ongoing process. Even though I don't know the final outcome, I know that I've dramatically improved my chances of fairness in an unfair, confusing, complicated and sometimes horribly unjust system "when you're doing it yourself". She sticks up for my rights, navigates the process and tirelessly works on my behalf. She gives lawyers a good name! If I'd had Natalie on my side before my families life would be exponentially better...We're well on our way now that we've found her. You can't go wrong with Natalie and the team at Korbin Steiner & Marquis. They have a deep bench when it comes to experience and talent in all facets of Family Law. And most importantly, they're real human beings that care to understand what you're going through as a litigant and parent.

You need to make your own decisions
I hired Natalie after going through a few lawyers who talked a good game, but fell apart in the court room or couldn't be found when an emergency came up. Natalie never actually took anything of mine to trial, so I can't speak to her capabilities as a litigator. She helped settle outside court on some issues including child support, which went my way, but with the evidence I had, it is hard to imagine it could have gone any other way. My concerns about Natalie came later when I brought continuing and repeated violations of orders by the other party to Natalie, including unauthorized delays on reimbursement. I feel that all I received from Natalie was a song and dance about how yes, my ex was violating multiple orders multiple times. Natalie claimed she believed it wasn't worth the risk to take in front of my judge. When I pressed her to file anyway, Natalie claimed there was some kind of ethical issue. I cancelled her representation. I then took reimbursement issues to court myself pro per. Our case was put in front of a commissioner, who quickly hammered the other party. The resulting minute entry was rather calm, but the court recording shows the commissioner's words to my ex were anything but...a complete win on my petition, including costs and a full payment of all funds outstanding, which I hadn't even asked for. The commissioner also clearly warned my ex that similar bad conduct would be viewed very dimly by the Court, and she could expect to be sanctioned. Looking back I am very disappointed that Natalie gave such bad advice...and I am very glad I ignored it. I could have been stuck continuing to put up with the constant harassment. Instead, by trusting my gut after years in court, I received everything I asked and more. My ex has been given another stern, clear warning on the record...ready for next time she decides to play games at my and our kids' expense. I'm also disappointed that Natalie never made the suggestion of taking issues in front of a commissioner rather than my judge. Natalie's view seems in hindsight to have been very black and white, yes or no, rather than a crafted strategy. Natalie advertised herself to me as being tough and ready to advocate for me, but in the end I feel she just doesn't have what it takes to deal with a case as contentious as mine and a female opposing party as willing to violate orders as mine.
