Amazing and the best choice
Stefano was a complete godsend for my divorce and custody case. He was very honest, knowledgeable, provided me with so much guidance and was very patient with my millions of questions. He is very detailed, professional and the best man for the job. I could not recommend anyone more than Stefano and his wife Natalie.

FELT LIKE FAMILY BECAUSE TRUST IS A MUST!
First off I want to start off by saying Stefano was the 3rd attorney we hired for our case so keep that in mind when you think about how much clean up he had to do from the other two attorneys mistakes. I am normally not one to say anything negative about other but when it come to your family, choosing a family law attorney is so crucial and can really effect the future of The ones you hold closest to your heart! I CAN NOT STRESS THAT ENOUGH! please do your research! Had it not been for Stefano we would have never seen our granddaughter again! We raised her since the day she was born until just 2 months shy of 6 years old. Some may say this should have been a easy case but after what our first two attorneys created on top of our granddaughter being moved out of state it was a very detailed case that had to have a massive amount of detailed oriented attention. I come from a family of attorneys though they are all out of state so finding an attorney that did the job to my expectations was I would say hard to find but we found him! I can say with all my heart I truly felt like family had my back! That he was my family fighting for what he knew was right! Another thing I want to point out to whom ever is reading this when you have a good attorney you will understand the saying “don’t stress, your attorney will do the rest” there are so many things in family cases that you can not shut off emotions too. It is just impossible, it’s your family! Your kids, your grandkids, your wife, your husband and so on. So the key is to find an attorney who you feel peace and comfort with that you can trust! We as a family found that in Stefano! He did all he could to take every precaution to protect us along with Save as the max amount of money like I said I truly feel like my brother was standing there as my attorney! You can’t get better then that, you really can’t! We got more then what we had originally even asked for and how he did it protect us all for future relationships. Family law is hard it is crappy no matter what the case is! You see sides of people you could never imagine even have. Stefano reminds you of that keeps you humble and truly looks at all angles so you can have a clear picture of what you want long term and short term. All I Can say is if it wasn’t for Stefano and who he is as and attorney and as a man our family wouldn’t be in the place we are! I am on of the biggest mamma bears out there and he passes my approval with flying colors! I know this is just one review but we heard about Steffano from another friend who had all odds against him so that’s why went to that close friend because I knew whoever won his case I would give a chance to look my case! THANK YOU Ceroni law firm for bringing our family peace and happiness again!

You Want Stefano Ceroni on Your Team
Stefano is an excellent Lawyer! I met Stefano under the circumstance of a divorce where I found out some unfavorable things about my marriage. The Ceroni Law Firm came highly recommended by a friend and they over exceeded my expectations. Stefano made sure I understood every part of the process, even explaining it multiple times over the course of our time working together to make sure I felt comfortable. He went above and beyond to make sure I understood my rights as a wife. Stefano’s attention to detail throughout the entire process is what earned us a favorable settlement. Another positive quality he has is the ability to connect and communicate well with the opposing lawyer and court staff. The most important thing about Stefano is that he genuinely cares about his clients and it shows every step of the way.

Exceptional Integrity and professionalism
Stefano supported my case for two years. In every interaction, Stefano was extremely knowledgeable, empathetic, patient and provided me with much needed guidance. I don't know what I would do without him. I would highly recommend Stefano and his wife Natalie. They make an amazing team and they restored my faith in attorney's. Sometimes Stefano would tell me what I did not want to hear but ultimately he understands Family law and knows how Judges think. My case turned out exactly how Stefano predicted. I recommended Stefano to my other friends that needed Family attorney and they are both extremely pleased with Stefano just as much as I am. Highly, highly, highly recommend.

The Most Professional, Honest, Knowledgeable, and Truly Empathetic Attorney you can hire!!!
Stefano has settled 2 cases for me now... The first was a very complicated divorce involving children and the second was a Stipulated Order to change custody and parenting time. The divorce would have been a nightmare if I did not have the right man for the job. Stefano was prepared and extremely professional throughout the hearing. I was terrified of the potential outcome and I walked out of the court room feeling like I had won in every category in question. We ended up settling and if it were not for Stefano I don't think settling would have ever been an option, but because of his preparedness we essentially won and had the leverage to ask for more than what would have been granted otherwise. I have to mention the most memorable of events during the custody battle. At one point I had a 2nd case simultaneously for a fictitious domestic violence trial. I ended up winning this case additionally, although Stefano was not part of that case he showed up on his own personal time on a Friday afternoon to lend his time, support, and knowledge of the events to testify if needed on my behalf. We did not end up getting the opportunity to use his testimony, but he was there off the clock because he is a person that actually cares about his clients and has their best interests at heart. More recently I consulted Stefano for the Stipulated Order for Visitation and he was able to address the issues and keep me out of the court room again and I got everything I wanted in Settlement and unexpectedly more than I had asked for again due to his knowledge, expertise, and advice.... Unfortunately for me I have had my fair share of counsel in the past and I thought I would never trust an attorney again and thought the majority of attorneys were out for themselves. Stefano reestablished my Faith in the Justice system and If I ever need anything in the future I will absolutely use Stefano. I go out of my way to tell people about my experience and I would recommend his services to anyone regardless of the circumstances. If you need an Attorney and want an Attorney that will go out of his way to help you than you need to hire Stefano Ceroni.... This man is amazing at his profession and above all else he is honest and sincere!!!

Superior excellence!
The unfortunate experience of divorce was very trying and an emotional roller coaster. Stefano was very receptive to my feelings and assisting me through the process being sure to explain all the details of what was going to happen in mediation and court. I would highly recommend Stefano to any person especially if there is a financial burden as he was more than willing to work with me to get through this process fairly and saving money at any avenue.

Great results from a great attorney
I met with Stefano regarding the father of my child who is MIA. He was very informative and responded to my request for a consult almost immediately. He was quick to get a meeting date set up and I didn't have to wait weeks to get in. It was only a couple days. He answered all my question and took his time. He didn't make me feel rushed at all and wasn't watching the clock non-stop. Stefano tells you the truth and gives the run down of the worst and best case scenarios. He is not one to automatically demand that you must go to court. He was honest and let me know that court was not necessary in my case and it could be resolve out of court.

The Best Choice
After dealing with multiple lawyers it was refreshing to find someone like Stefano to represent my case. He was very responsive from start to finish to all of my questions, concerns. He also took the time to educated me throughout the process on what should or should not to expect. Very much involved in my case which showed dedication and integrity and made me feel he really cares about my matters. Very well presented my case on court as well, confident, prepared and knowledgeable. Very easy to work with . If you need a reliable lawyer who is really looking out for the client best interest He is the best. From me and my family Thank you for everything Stefano ! God Bless you

Trustworthy, Communicative, and Hard Working
I retained Stefano as my attorney to resolve an issue regarding a disagreement between my son's father and I. He was extremely helpful in not only laying out the facts of my case, but very suggestive in different ways that we could try to resolve our issues outside of court. He was very blunt and honest with me and did not waste my time in or out of the office. He was very quick to respond to any questions that I had, and pointed me in the direction that was able to ultimately satisfy our case and resolve the issue at hand. If you want an attorney who will work hard for you and be honest with the expectations, who will not waste your time or money, then go to Stefano. I would recommend him to any friends or family in need of a family court attorney and will definitely use him again for any further issues that might arise.

Gnehm Divorce
The one change I would ask for is to provide advice in terms of what would you recommend if it was your sister or mom? The decision to settle versus fight for what was right still haunts me, if I did the right thing.
