I hired Al on a recommendation from "Legal Shield".
When I interviewed him, he told me move-away cases were one of his specialties.
I later learned that he knew very little about move away cases, and was more comfortable with negotiating settlements than he was with litigating custody trials.
Al was indeed very good at the negotiating table with my ex's attorney, but his performances in court both time we needed to appear were embarrassing.
Additionally, after 6 moths and nearly $30,000 worth of billable hours reviewing all of the material for my case, Al allowed himself to be intimidated by opposing council, and insisted he needed 6 more months to prepare for a proper trial.
I fired Al after that, and hired another, similarly priced, attorney. With no new material and less than 6 weeks of preparation that attorney was ready for trial - and won me 80% custody an the right to move across the country with my child.
If Al had any idea what he was doing, my case would have been settled for a fraction of the cost, in a fraction of the time.
DO NOT hire him if you plan on going to trial.

When I came to Al I was desperate and scared. I knew nothing about divorces spousal support or child support. He explained everything and detail to me walked me through every bit of the process. Everything I needed and wanted is what he acquired for me. He was kind compassionate and caring. Al and Maria have been incredibly nice and Incredibly attentive. I cannot begin to say enough good about them. I would recommend them to everybody. I now have the spousal support and child support that I requested and there have been no problems anymore. Thank you Al and Maria.

My son is a full time college student who is currently a client. This Firm/team did everything plus more than we expected. My son was able to not only get a court ordered Paternity test, new birth certificate and has had his son on his life now for the best 4 months of my sons life. The care and concern, willing to work within a students budget, well that just icing on the cake. Words can't express this family's gratitude

From my consult with Al to all our hearings I have always felt like priority! The lawyers had an amazing opportunity happen for my son to travel to the Olympics with my during the Rio games. Along with having a great knowledge of the law and being great people. What more could you ask for? I reccomend provinziano every time a family member or friend ask for advice.

Mr. Provinziano has to be the most compassionate person I have ever met. With his help my wife was able to get the child support she deserved and was able to keep her child here. He has been the best lawyer I've ever hired to represent my family. Look no further than Mr. Provinziano. Tough and will fight for you.

Alphonse Provinziano is the best family law attorney I have ever engaged. I am a retired paralegal with over 30 years of experience with many of the largest law firms in Los Angeles. My personal legal issue involved some unique, complex, and diverse circumstances that included business and family matters. Mr. Provinziano guided all aspects of my case through the pre-trial hearing. During the Court hearing lunch break, Mr. Provinziano hand drafted an eleven-page stipulation that was accepted by all parties thus settling my case. Due to his exceptional lawyering, expertise, and wisdom, he won a half-million dollar award based upon a rare set of issues. Mr. Provinziano is motivated, assertive, and attentive to the issues of his client. He is also accessible, and practiced in addressing the fears and concerns of his client. I continue to retain Mr. Provinziano and I hold him in the highest esteem.

Al and Maria handled my divorce perfectly. The entire office is streamlined and professional- yet caring. I hired Al in January and was divorced in April. My case wasn't a big money case but it was complicated by my ex filing bankruptcy during our separation. Ultimately his bankruptcy delayed my life for over a year. I was forced to file an adversary action against my ex as a creditor to enforce our separation agreement and hold him reasonable for all domestic obligations- because of course he stopped complying with our agreement and visitation literally on the day he filed for bankruptcy. He moved to a lower paying job and basically transformed to a deadbeat dad on the day of filing. After I secured a judgment in bankruptcy court (which took 6 months) against my ex I researched lawyers for months till I found Al. He was the only family law lawyer who seemed to actually understand my case and knew exactly how to handle it. I only had to explain myself once and he knew exactly how to handle my case- and he did exactly what he told me he would do. He was aggressive and firm. Maria worked on all my paperwork under Al's guidance. She was great. She is very bright and knew what she was doing. She would call me with questions and really understood my position and attitude. My goal was not fueled by revenge or bitterness- she understood that. I just wanted to be divorced and get whatever I was owed. Period. And I wanted was my ex to attend counseling (he started acting very bizarre in front of the kids which was not shocking to Al or Maria as I guess that is normal for some people) and see his kids in healthy settings. With both of them together I felt so comfortable about my case. Every single call or e-mail was answered promptly. All my forms were filed correctly and on time. Opposing counsel did not seem nearly as organized or confident. Al and Maria got me more than what I wanted. Not just that but they correctly predicted the actions of the judge and opposing counsel which ultimately played in my favor and saved everyone time and money. They cut right to the point, avoided all the delays my ex tried to extend, and literally did not leave court until I was divorced, happy and finally had an enforceable judgment. Literally both Maria and Al came to court for my first and only time. We stayed all day from 8-3:30pm negotiating to get exactly what I needed. Al and Maria asked for and got me and my children what we needed to live and survive this. They were very aggressive and sought out only the best for us- things I did not even think of. Even when I would say just forget it- or offered to give in Al would not let me. In four months of preparation and one day in court my 2 year drawn out divorce was finally done. My ex literally avoided all responsibility and purposely delayed our divorce- he tired anything to not support his kids or attend counseling with them to re-establish a relationship. I left court with a judgment enforcing my bankruptcy judgment that my ex acted like was unenforceable. Al made OC see exactly how the law was on my side and I was entitled to all back support and domestic obligations. We were even able to get counseling ordered for the benefit of my children that my ex must attend. He organized a very responsible visitation plan. Al never once faltered or wavered to just go to court and let the judge order all back monies when OC tired to make me negotiate items that were already settled in the bankruptcy judgment. I tried to be organized and concise in all communications and that helped all of us with organization. I kept my communication brief and gave detailed typed notes. If you're looking to save money that is what you should do- BUT don't hire a "cheaper" lawyer. I knew I could call or email everyday if I wanted- but of course I did not. The billing was very fair and I feel I got more than I payed for. I am literally able to breathe again thanks to Al and Maria. They literally saved my life.

My name is Frank and I am a client of Mr. Provinziano. I hired Mr Provinziano as my attorney because I felt the judge case was against me from the start. She wouldn't let me speak, wouldn't allow Any of my evidence in, nothing. But Alphonse and his team turned my case around. They jumped on my case quickly, they were caring and very professional throughout the entire process. They made me feel like my own family was fighting for my rights as a father. Not only did Alphonse turn the tables in my case, he got my time with my son increased to more than triple what it was before. I have so much more time with my son now, I'm beyond happy. I would recommend Alphonse Provinziano as an attorney to anybody who needs help with the judicial process. Thanks again Al!! Your the Man!

I just have to say that WOW! As someone who's had to deal with many different attorney's for various issues throughout my entire life....Alphonse was probably the most accommodating and the most positive experience I've ever had with one.
After searching through and meeting with a variety of lawyers, we decided to take the plunge and hire Alphonse to take care of my wife's custody issue....we were extremely lucky to have him on our side throughout the entire case.
My wife's custody case was one that we previously thought wasn't going to be a simple one that is until we hired Alphonse and his team who did an amazing job keeping on top of everything and quickly resolving the case.
We owe him a great deal for significantly reducing the custody time sharing of our children from a neglectful and manipulative former spouse.
Alphonse does EXACTLY what you'd want an attorney to do, they take care of literally everything for you from Start to Finish and keep you updated throughout the entire process. He and his team were able to not only get the exact result that we wanted, he was able to get us much more than we previously thought possible!
This isn't some slick overpaid downtown lawyer....He's an extremely down to earth attorney who has a family of his own and understands exactly what you as the parent want and knows how to get it.
The 1st day of court, he himself showed up and was able to quickly adapt to what the judge wanted us to do while still getting us precisely what we wanted.
This is the guy that you want to take care of your sensitive family related issues. I can't recommend him enough!

We hired Mr. Provinziano through my work. My fiancé is going through a child custody/move away case. We have hired 3 lawyers in the past with little to no results from them. We gathered evidence and did all the work for our previous lawyers and still got us no where. One of them basically told us to give up the kids and accept the move. It was heartbreaking. The first time my fiancé and I talked to Mr. Provinziano he sounded like a very genuine person. The past lawyers we had sounded like...well like lawyers (Ruthless, greedy, and not caring whatsoever) He definetly made a good impression on us and did great in court last week! He knew the law very well. With trial coming up we feel that we are in good hands with him.
