I was referred to Mr. Lacilento by a woman who leads pro-parent (anti-DCFS) advocacy groups and she's proven to know her stuff, without a doubt. Art has been described as a fighter many times and having seen him in action, there is no question that that is exactly what he is. After hearing all the atrocious lies and twisted truths about me as presented by the opposing counsel, I didn't think my daughter and I had a chance in the world at having the allegations dropped. He proved me wrong. He's AMAZING. LET HIM DRIVE. He knows what he's doing and everyone in these courts knows and respects him. He had me and my family's best interests at heart at every turn and I believe he will do the same for you.

I believe in the First Amendment, especially when consumers are truthfully warning other consumers about potential unprofessional works. I would not recommend as my experience was simply unfavorable.

Hands down simply the best. I had the most difficult time in my life in dealing with CFS. After meeting and talking with Art I knew right away he was going to represent me. I retained Art and he did the best job an attorney can do. The outcome was very good. He even went out of his way to contact my criminal attorney and gave him some guidance which was very helpful because I felt my criminal attorney wasn't doing his job. I praise Art for going out of his way and doing that me. If you are going with another attorney PLEASE just give Art a call and meet with him before you do so. He will represent you very well like he did for me. Arts prices are reasonable compared to other attorneys I spoke to. The last thing I would like to add is the office personal is great and very professional. GOD BLESS YOU GUYS.

First, I would like to say if you are reading reviews for an attorney such as Art, that you are probably feeling worried and have some very difficult times to work through. Rest assured that you do not need to Search anymore.
I understand how this feels and was there as well, I spent hours and days researching and reviewing lawyers to find the most skilled help I could. I had two previous lawyers and I truly wish I had Art and his expertise to begin with. The law he specializes in requires a truly unique knowledge, a heart of gold, and a man that will fight for what matters the most!
I was terrified and in the most difficult time of my life. I was blessed to find Art as a referral from another attorney, Shaun McMillan.
There is nothing more important in this world than my family. I spoke to Art and his wife Susan at length prior to retaining. I felt comfortable and entrusted them throughout this process and they were with me every step of the way, with a true dedication and focus to me as a client and my needs.
Art is a fighter, and he is a kind man that does not allow anyone to push him around. Like many other reviewers have said, if he believes in you he will fight for you.! Also, he is honest and will tell you the truth. If he knows you are wrong he will tell you. I cannot say enough about the integrity and compassion this firm exudes. Art is the best attorney I have ever had and the only attorney I will ever need to retain!

As a Veteran of Iraq during combat operations in 2004 and again in Afghanistan during the Spring Offensive in the Helmand Province I was given a very low probability of maintaining my family intact from numerous lawyers regarding my case involving Child Protective Services. I have an arrest record to include substance abuse and alcohol problems in my past along with questionable incidents related to my post traumatic stress disorder that were all being used against me making it difficult to obtain custody of my 23 month daughter. When I came across Mr. LaCilento and his legal team they provided me hope again, he was persistent and never settled for less and sure as hell fought tooth and nail for my toddler to come home to me. Mr. LaCilento not only managed to aggressively attack those attempting to further tarnish my image as a father but he managed to have my toddler back to me with full custody. Mr. LaCilento is worth every dollar, after all you get what you pay for. Mr. LaCilento doesn't waste time neither does he sugar coat things and his honesty is what I admired the most. He provided me with the possibilities but he also demanded that I keep my word and focused on my recovery. A lawyer who actually cared about my wellness and provided me with positive reinforcement has forever made his name in my prayers. I wish Mr. LaCilento and his legal team the best along with his son who I pray that he carries on his father's strengths and accomplishments. Thank you Mr. LaCilento and please continue to help us Veterans and our families.

This team is lacking the enthusiasm, compassion and it seems they lack the logical expertise needed to handle the case. There's allot of good reviews on here yes however this team didn't satisfy me.. Unlike some dramatic reviews here people should know that using an attorney is not a movie. I felt my future ex husband alone couldn't destroy there stance on my divorce. I walked away feeling this was more about money than helping me and my children.

I hired Art over a year ago. Him & his team sue & virdie have been a blessing in mine & my childrens lives. I have had everything from familt to civin & criminal court. Art has been there 100%. Trust me when i say a lot of court dates. Art has won every single case. He is an amazing man i can never thank him & his team enought. God has blessed me with them when i had no family to turn to for help. This law firm is now a piece of my heart i consider them a piece of my family forever. My advice if you have a case big or small Art is the man. He doesnt take you're money to fail. He goes in full force 100% everything hes got & more to win you're case. I have great respect for this man

All i have to say about Art is that if you are told by anyone else that it is impossible to win your case, they are lying and Arthur Lacilento will prove it! When he walks through the hall ways of the courthouse i swear its like a walking hurricane parting the red sea!!!! EVERYONE professional literally steps aside as he walks by and when any DPSS social worker sees him walk in they know instantly its over and they are gonna lose!!! ARTHUR LACILENTO IS A BIG EXAMPLE OF AN ANGEL OF GOD!!!! I will be hiring him for myself soon after seeing what he did for a friend of mine after i referred them to him!!!
Arthur, i look forward to seeing you soon!!

I had been trying to adopt a child I had for ten years but social services and lying social workers kept it from happening. I finally hired Art and not only did he get the adoption closed but he got a restraining order against social services for us. He was so amazing and trustworthy that another family member of mine has also recently hired Art. He is an excellent attorney, a Christian man, a family man, and full of knowledge in his area of law. He is worth every penny we spent on his services.

I reached out to Art for some advice involving my four children and a very vindictive social worker. I had a hearing the next day, things were not looking well and my attorney had a family emergency. I was honest and open that I had already retained an attorney and was simply seeking advice. Art, had no financial incentive to help me, none whatsoever, I was just hoping he'd offer me some advice, as I'd heard he was the top dog in fighting Social Services. He asked me what time my hearing was, what courtroom it was in and told me he had to be at the same court that day and would meet with me. He took the time to offer me advice several times throughout the day. Spoke with the attorneys, argued on my kids behalf out in the hall and all out of the goodness of his heart. I've retained many attorneys over the past eight years, as a result of my husband's death. I've yet to meet one attorney who truly had no financial gain and cared enough to help. I took the time to write this review because this is an attorney who actually is passionate about what he does and who cares about protecting the families caught in this awful system. All four of my children were returned home that day. Art, you are a true crusader for justice and a man who cares about the families caught in this ugly system. On behalf of myself and my children, a big thank you for renewing our faith in the concept of an attorney who actually cares about the children he fights for......
