Awesome Job!
I hired Gina approximately 3 months ago. She helped me get custody of my 2-year old daughter. She also got me child support. My ex said he would never pay me, but the money is already coming directly out of his check. I don't know where I would be without her. Thank you, Gina. You really helped me out of a terrible situation.

A Huge Relief!
I am STILL going through a bitter divorce that involves custody, child support and alimony. Until hiring Gina and getting to know her, I truly felt alone in this whole ordeal. My two children are my life and my ex has been spending all of his time, energy and money on trying to make our lives miserable. I'm sad things have gotten to the point that they have but she has been there for me EVERY step of the way. Gina is a busy woman (but that's a good thing!) and she still makes time for me and all of my questions, worries and concerns. She is informative and reassuring. The legal system is a sticky thing to navigate and I highly recommend someone like Gina to guide you through the process and represent you. I have so much on the line here...& Gina herself, is a mother and understands things from the legal aspect and the actual "family" aspect. I wouldn't want anyone else representing me at this point. I am thankful for her professional advice and for the times where I just needed some encouraging words and reassurance. It has been a priceless experience thus far. Thank you Gina...

Will never go to anyone else!
It's been a couple years, but I HAD to come back and leave a review about the outstanding help I received from Gina Famularo and her associates. Had been through several attorneys, thousands of dollars and over 9 years of custody battles to try and get at custody of my son. To be honest, I was about to give up, when my wife came across her on Avvo, and boy was I glad we took that last chance. From the very first phone call (I am in a different state so dealing with Interstate custody issue ) I could tell this is an area that she is passionate about, and her honesty, aggressive approach, and professionalism was exactly what I needed. I especially appreciated her honesty when at times it was not what I would WANT to hear, but what I needed to...After taking her advice, and having her represent me in our several court appearances including our final trial hearing, she helped me finally win primary custody of my son. I wont ever be able to thank her enough. Thanks to her, my son is thriving and doing well here with me. Thank you!

Divorce
Although my divorce has not been finalized, I’ve felt protected and heard. Handled all of my anxiety’s and insecurities with patience. They continue to make sure that not only my case is going in the right direction but checks on my well being.

The Best of the Best
I am still going through a though divorce. But I don't want to wait until it ends to leave a review for this awesome outstanding lawyer. She is the best of the best. I interviewed 3 lawyers before hiring Gina office for my complicated case. The reason I choose Gina. My friend at work recommended her she won full custody of her daughter's ...but that was not the only reason when I walked in to the office of Gina everyone was nice welcoming and supportive. In every way. From the receptionist to the paralegal Moly to my lawyers Gina, Kristie and Colleen. Everyone is amazing. They are honest they were straight forward with me of what they can do what I should not expect. That kinda honesty is hard to find. I admire them. They understand my anxiety and the fear of losing my kids to their abusive dad. They do everything anything possible to do to get you the best result you need to move on to a new chapter in your life. Divorce is expensive and it is normal lawyers paralegals need and deserve to get paid for their hard work. It's worth every penny I paid. If in the future I need their help I will do it in heartbeat. I still have a long complicated case due to my kid's father who is trying everything to make it difficult on me. But Everytime I walk in to court I walk out winning because I have Gina, Kristie and Colleen by myside. Your client Khadija

Excellent Attorney
I interviewed several attorneys before I came to Family Law Matters. The first time I met with Gina, I just felt like she understood what I was going through and how to help. She took a very complicated, horrible situation and got it resolved in court. Even though it was a situation she hadn’t dealt with in the past, she kept fighting for my kids and I and was able to win every time we went to court. She and her staff always went above and beyond my expectations. I never had to worry about any part of the divorce process while I was a client. The office took care of everything and kept me informed the entire time. There is no way I could have done any of this myself. They are experts at family law and the court system.

Spousal support modifications
Thankful we hired a lawyer from this firm Atty. Kristie Bergamo. We were hoping Gina will handle our case but was assigned to another lawyer. All our fears disappeared because Atty.Bergamo is a great lawyer.

Skilled Lawyer
Gina and her legal team helped me when my last attorney dropped me right before trial. I was set for a trial I did not want in the first place. I felt hopeless until I walked into her office. The receptionist were cheerful and amazing. My consult was scary but honest. I took a leap of faith hiring her and, honestly, it paid off. We went through this two-day trial and Gina was as aggressive as they come. She tore my ex a new one. Now, the trial is over and my judgment is stamped. They even brought be in at the end and gave me my judgment as a team along with a champagne bottle. Never had an experience like this before.

Look no further!
Ms. Famularo’s firm is amazing, for lack of a better word! Our case went exactly as we wanted thanks to Ms. Lemming! The entire staff was always available, honest, professional, protective and always on point! They gave great advice to us every step of the way and ensured my daughter’s safety and well being. I couldn’t be more satisfied with every aspect of their firm, from B’s helpfulness and understanding, Gina’s expertise, Scottie’s protectiveness and fierceness and the courtesy of all of the paralegals and receptionists. I have had several attorneys in the past and never had an experience quite like this! Thank you, thank you to everyone at Family Law Matters!

The greatest
I hired Gina to help me with a divorce. Gina and her team of attorneys and staff were caring, compassionate and efficient. They negotiated a fair deal for me without even having to go to court! I was so nervous about the whole process but they broke it down for me step by step and answered all my stupid questions. Even though getting a divorce is stressful, they made me feel comfortable with the process.

Good Attorney
I retained Gina to modify my current custody and support orders. I was very pleased with how she and her team handled my case. They returned their phone calls as promised and always kept me updated. My paralegal was very well informed and helpful. They did a good job on my case and I am happy with the new orders I got.

Great Attorney
I retained Gina approximately 7 months ago and I could not have made a better decision. Her staff was amazing and professional. They always reminded me of my appointments and court hearings and answered my questions promptly. Her paralegal is amazing. Gina told me what I should expect during this stressful process and she was accurate. She told me about my judge and prepared me well before my hearings and mediation. I owe everything to her. Now I can move on with my life and still have a strong relationship with my kids. Now I just have to wait for the judgment to be finalized. Thank you Gina.

Best lawyer in town!
I definitely recommend this attorney office to anyone in need of excellent legal help! Gina went above and beyond, she even met with me for the first time after hours because my work hours didn't permit me to come any other time. She and her team were sensitive to my needs, caring, fair, always returned my calls and emails in a timely manner, and they fought for me when I didn't know how to do so for myself.

Thank You
I hired Family Law Matters to handle my custody matter after my ex took me back to court to try to get full custody of our 11 year old son. My ex filled my son with all kinds of lies about me and refused to even talk to me. Gina was able to convince the judge that the custody order shouldn't be changed. I would have lost Tyler forever if I didn't hire Gina.

Great Lawyer!!!!
Was served with a packet of false opinions about a year ago the day before a meeting. Gina was a great help in keeping it to the facts and working through the adversity the other attorney and her client were throwing at her. She doesn't look to drive a wedge further in-between divorced parties just to make a buck. I feel that Gina really cares about her clients.

Gina and her staff were wonderful. They helped me move on with my life. I cannot thank them enough. Without them, I would still be stuck fighting with my ex and losing sight of what is truly important, my kids. I am happy with the result and I am ready to move on and enjoy my life with my children. I would recommend her to anyone who is going through a divorce. She is truly the best.
