Lonardo & Jacovino
I hired Bonnie Lonardo and Janice Jacovino for a name change due to a typographic error made on my birth certificate. This was my second experience with hiring a lawyer in my life. Both lawyers were very professional. On our first meeting, they explained the whole process and time frame with me. Within 2 1/2 months I was able to get my name change. I would recommend them to anyone needing a lawyer specializing in family practice.

Compassionate, Caring Legal Professional
Compassion and concern - items that are not generally associated with the legal industry. Bonnie uses these tools first! Answering questions and helping to level the field is extremely important while in foreclosure and these services come first from this office. We are confident of successful resolution with Bonnie on our side!

Helped save our home from foreclosure
Bonnie was recommended to us by a real estate agent that we had called regarding a rental home since were considering letting our house go to foreclosure. Bonnie was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and guided us through the whole process with patience and understanding. Answered all questions and was honest and forthcoming about our chances to save our home. She made it all very easy and painless and we got a loan modification that was just finalized this week. Would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help staying in their house. She truly was a blessing for us!

I hired Bonnie and Janice to assist me with my bankruptcy and I could not be happier. They were professional, honest, and very knowledgeable. Throughout the process I had numerous challenges/ questions and not only did they answer my questions, but they helped me through a very tumultuous time in my life. Indeed they know how to "build relationships." I know that if I ever need legal help again I would definitely call on Bonnie and Janice at LJ Law. I am very thankful to both of them.
