I understand the suffering families experience during divorce and have a passion for helping them through these difficult times. Divorce is one of the most difficult steps that anyone will ever have to take in life. The process has a profound emotional and financial impact upon everyone involved. Not only does divorce sever a couple's legal status as "married" and all of the benefits that flow from it, it necessitates significant real and personal changes in the lives of everyone involved whether anticipated or not. I am committed to helping clients through these difficult times and help them transition to better and happier lives.

I would highly recomend this attorney
On one hand, Toni is a tough, no nonsense, "make it happen" type of attorney. She dealt with the other attorney with a very firm hand and refused to compromise on what I felt was right. On the other, she is very empathetic and caring. She took the time to listen to all of my person needs and concerns. She kept me informed of all of the developments in my case and never made any substantive decisions without consulting me first. I obtained an excellent result and we are still good friends today. Toni is a brilliant attorney and one of the most woderful individuals I have ever met.

Antoinette Lerandeau
To those of you needing a tough and empathetic attorney for a family law case, look no further than Antoinette Lerandeau. She has the family court know-how and understanding of the law to bring comfort to an otherwise awful experience. She helped me to not only get everything I was asking for in regard to custody and support, but she also empowered me with confidence that the struggle would be worth the end result. And when you hire an attorney at Lerandeau & Lerandeau, you get the knowledge and support of the whole group. Custody and support cases are not easy, but Antoinette and her staff accompished everything they promised -and more importantly they accomplished everything I requested. I highly recommend Antoinette to any family law case.
