Greg Soriano, if you need a lawyer he is the one you need!
Greg and his staff are the best! Very professional in every way. I sat down with Greg and told him that my wife wanted a divorce. He took the time to go over everything I needed to know before I hired him as my attorney. After talking with Greg I hired him and his firm to represent me in my divorce. Because of Greg's experience I was able to get my divorce with out the expense of going to court. He was able to get me everything I was asking for including keeping my pension. I can't recommend Greg and his staff enough. Hopefully I will never need an attorney again, bit if I do Greg will be the first one I call. Thank you and your staff for all you did for me.

Mr Soriano made a difficult situation bearable.
Mr. Soriano was very patient with a long drawn out divorce proceeding that ended up being resolved with a separation agreement. He and his staff were great to deal with, and made a difficult situation bearable.

professional
Mr.Soriano represented me during the ending of a long marriage. He was a good listener and was professional in all dealings with the court system. His assistant Jennifer was always friendly and helpful as well, and I would highly recommend Greg to friends or family if they were in need of a competent attorney.

Divorce attorney review for Greg Soriano
Mr Soriano was recommended to me by a mutual friend. I had never had a need for an attorney before , especially in a contentious matter. From our first conversation he made me feel at ease and assured me that he would take care of my matter. Any time I called he and his staff were very professional at calming my fears and making me feel that they were doing what I needed to take care of my case. Since we were 400 miles away we handled the biggest share of communication by e-mail and phone and the staff was always quick to respond. Of course, I didn't feel that I got everything that I wanted but he tried to keep my costs down and was very fair in billing. I would use him again if I ever needed help.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Soriano has been my child custody/parenting time attorney for over ten years. Sadly, I have been involved in an on-going battle, which has required an enormous amount of time and energy. Greg and his people have always been there for me not only with expert legal advice each and every time I am taken back to court, but with kindness and genuine empathy. Greg truly cares about doing what is in the best interest of the child. He is well-respected by his peers, judges and court staff. Bottom line, your representation does matter and you would be smart to hire Greg Soriano.

Senior Judge
I am now a retired Circuit Court Judge. While on the bench I had hundreds of attorneys appear before me. Greg is the best domestic relations attorney I dealt with. I hired him to represent me in my domestic relations case.

Exceptional
I have been in an ongoing Family Law battle for over 8 years. 3 years ago Greg Soriano took over my case. He efficiently and effectively put an end to the back and forth court battles. He genuinely cares for each situation and makes very clear what your rights and legal options are. His staff is wonderfully comforting, and very accommodating to sticky situations and circumstances. The best attorney/ law firm I've worked with by far, couldn't recommend Mr. Soriano and his staff more.

Cares about his clients
Mr. Soriano is one of a kind. He is extremely experienced in family law. I hired Mr. Soriano for a high conflict custody and parenting time case and he prevailed. What impressed me about Mr. Soriano is how thoroughly he knew my case and how professional he is. It is definitely important to choose the right lawyer whether you are going through a divorce or a modification proceeding. You won't find a better advocate
