I met with Mr. Falzone last week for a consultation at his Alameda office, which was most convenient for me. After our meeting I have no reservations about referring his family law practice to other locals. He was very welcoming, I'd almost say soothing in a way, as I felt a lot better leaving than I did going in.
He was able to answer all of my questions clearly without making me feel dumb for asking, and let me take more of his time than I expected. I'm not ready to hire him on retainer yet, but when the time comes, he's the guy I'll call.

I saw Mr. Falzone for help with a long-term child support issue. My child support has been in arrears for more than four years. I was concerned about my children and my relationship with my ex-husband. He helped resolve the situation and helped me get the child support arrears from my ex. This allowed me to assist my daughters with their college expenses. At every step, he explained my options and kept me informed. I was able to resolve this issue with a minimum of expense and his counsel helped to keep communication with my ex civil and direct. Until I worked with Mr. Falzone I was certain attorneys were only concerned with their retainers and generating bills. As the sole support for my daughters costs were a concern. I did my research and was fortunate to have him represent me. I was and continue to be very satisfied with his service and I strongly recommend Mr. Falzone for assistance in resolving marital and support issues. He cares about what is best for you and for your children. The fees I paid was truly a great value and money well spent. I had tried to handle my situation on my own without success. Mr. Falzone delivered, and he listened to my concerns.

Lawsuits of any kind are a nightmare. The best ones are where you get in and out of them as quickly and cheaply as possible. Frankly it doesn't matter if you are the plaintiff or defendant; lawsuits are bad from any angle in my opinion.
I used the legal services of Mr. Falzone this past year. He was so bright and smart and moved my legal situation along very rapidly with a kind and caring way. He was the second attorney I had hired as had fired the first one because I felt that the original attorney was deliberately making the case go slow so he could make more money from it.
Mr. Falzone came in quickly to the case and had a grasp of the case just from our initial half hour conversation and he took action immediately. He also worked to mediate the situation as he said it would cost less if both parties got along and were not going at this case as a way to argue more.
He is very smart, savvy and also knows how the courts work and the personalities of different judges around the San Francisco Bay. I think it is important to have a lawyer who gets along with people and tries to avoid nasty confrontations. That saves you lots of hours of their billable time and also lots of anxiety.
I felt he really cared about what I needed done and was on my side. I also felt like his fees were very reasonable and he was very open and honest and fair with his billing. I also felt like he really "heard me" and also was totally approachable on any subject regarding the case.
I not only thought he did a fantastic job on my case; I also felt he was a really decent, kind, understanding person; rare in these times! If you hire him, I think you are smart for doing that and lucky for getting him as your attorney.
I can't thank him enough for what he did for me.

I highly endorse this lawyer. Gerard is an experienced and dedicated attorney, but even more importantly I know him to be a generous and empathetic human being. A prospective client caught up in a divorce or custody dispute would be well-served by his affable demeanor, integrity and zealous advocacy. I refer clients in need of family law counsel to him without reservation.
