Gene is a great attorney, not only was he 100% correct in everything he told me that was going to happen in the courtroom. He genuinely cared about my case! I had an instant good feeling when I met him. He gives you the advice that an attorney should. I interviewed a few attorneys and if I would've followed their instructions I would've been completely let down. Not only did we win, we got every single thing we asked for! He handled this long overdue lawsuit with the knowledge one would hope for with his 31 years of experience.
He dominated the courtroom, shut down opposing council when she tried to lie and bend the truths! he presented the facts and got me what I deserved!!
Words cannot describe how happy I am that I went with my gut and hired him over the others I met with!! He doesn't beat around the bush, gives it to you straight and that is something every attorney should do! His office staff was great! Any question I had they answered it right away, especially Carmen!! Thank all of you so very much!!! From the bottom of my heart you have no idea what this means to me!!
The only regret I have, is not doing this sooner and finding Gene years ago!! If you want a smart, go getter that handles business quickly and doesn't mess around go with this man! You won't be disappointed!!!
Thanks again all of you!!!

If you need an attorney, hire Gene Cristiano! In my case Gene got me $750.00 in sanctions (the other side has to pay my attorney fees) because the other side was lying to the Court and not cooperating in giving his financial records. Gene argued against a continuance that the other side was asking for, won, and got an order that the other side has to provide all of his financial records to me within 20 days or the Court was going to sanction him again to pay for more of my attorney's fees. Gene is GREAT!!! I cannot emphasize enough how amazing this attorney is. I will recommend Gene to anyone and everyone I know who is in need of legal services. Gene is a fighter for what you want.
By far, the best attorney I have ever dealt with. He is honest from the beginning and straight forward. Gene tells it like it is. Thank you Gene for your hard work!

Gene Cristiano is a diligent and honest lawyer who consistently gives his clients 100%. His years of experience in law and mediation help his clients reach a resolution without needless hours in court. His personal attention and explanations help a client go through the difficult process of a divorce or custody matter as an informed participant. Gene looks at the whole picture for a client and continually seeks the best outcome. If needed, Gene is also a tenacious litigant who is not afraid to challenge and fight for his clients' rights and needs. I have referred many cases to Gene, confident that he will give the client the best service possible.
