Highly Recommended
Mr. Polari's experience was evident throughout my divorce case. I live several hundred miles from Ray , so he handled my case over the phone and via email . He was clear about how I needed to proceed and was always responsive to my questions about the case. He worked diligently , with insight, patience and understanding from the very beginning until the final paperwork was filed . I can unequivocally recommend Ray Polari.

Great Lawyer
I hired Ray after my ex wife filed to take all my visitation as she had re married and had a new child and meeting me half way so I could see my kids was to much of a burden on her new family. Ray argued successfully to get us into mediation and found a mediator who was incredible. thanks to Ray and his hard work I was granted more visitations with my kids then I had before my ex filed. I can honestly say that Ray is not just a great Lawyer to have on your side but also is a good man.

Caring and professional
Mr. Pollari is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He was very compassionate in his profession. I hired him as my attorney in a divorce case involving many aspects. Without Mr. Pollari's expertise my case would have been an absolute tragedy. I have and still recommend him to anyone going through or even thinking about divorce.

Attorney Review
I was fortunate enough to find Ray Pollari as an attorney regarding my divorce case. Mr. Pollari was handling the divorce case long distance as I was out of the country. He was professional, prompt at returning my phone calls and excellent at keeping me informed of the progress of the case I found him easy to do business with and would highly recommend him.

Divorce failure
Terrible experience- never did what he said he was going to do. Always seemed to make mistakes in favor of my ex very crucial mistakes. Never addressed issues like CS correctly even when I had $0 income and ex had all of our income and was receiving it under false pretense to which Ray was aware. Never felt that anything that I said was of importance often leaving out viable facts pertaining to issues with my case. Was not doing what I asked of him as far as settlement offers. Took him three months to finally put something together to send over on a counter offer after I had been asking for three months and wanting to avoid a trial all together if possible. In court would not remember crucial information with me correcting him on many of them. Spent almost a year with him and got nothing accomplished other than him taking my money and time. Terrible experience all together. Tells you what he thinks you want to hear at the time you are consulting with him but does not follow thru on any of it. He messed up and didn't follow thru with setting up a trial date so when I termed him and hired another lawyer my case was delayed by another 5 months. Thanks to his many many mistakes I am now on my 3rd attorney and two and half years later still have not had a settlement or trial.
