Gave Me a Sense of Reassurance

I’ve had a lengthy experiences of issues with my sons mother over the years and during that time I have met with several lawyers in an attempt to find one who will answer my questions in detail. Mr. Petrelli sat with me and went into great detail on how to best attack my situations. He made me no promises but also gave me a sense of reassurance by helping me look up other cases that pertained to mine. Not to mention his staff was also very helpful and welcoming. I would highly recommend him to any who are in need.

— Daniel Dougherty

This firm was on point from my initial contact. I have a busy, stressful job and the idea of dealing with not only my divorce, but choosing a lawyer was stressful. I was able to book my appointment online and even pick the attorney I wanted to meet with. I chose to meet with Melinda and I am so glad I did. From the initial consultation, she listened, was empathetic, and laid out an action plan. The minute I retained she jumped into action. I felt confident with her by my side and she really got me results. Even when Melinda wasn’t available, her paralegal Donna was so helpful. This firm really knows how to help clients through a difficult divorce. I highly recommend this firm!

— Jessica Parker

I found their level of sympathy and flexibility to be remarkable

Petrelli Previtera will give very personalized consideration to your case, no matter the complexity. I came to them with an uncontested divorce from an uncooperative spouse and they were attentive and communicative at each step of the process. Having never dealt with the legal system before, I felt informed about what was happening and what I could expect, and confident in the firm’s ability and intention to represent me well.

I found their level of sympathy and flexibility to be remarkable, especially at the end of my case and during a period that coincided with some changes in the firm. I was impressed with their professionalism throughout this time and would gladly recommend them to anyone in need of honest help with family law.

— Matilda Leary

We Were Very Pleased

We were very pleased with the good service and efficiency that we were given for obtaining my husband’s divorce decree of many decades past. I was also happy with Mr. Steve Kozitzky’s kind and personal manner as the person who I spoke with and who answered my emails to my initial queries. And, Ms. Katherine Lyons obtained the decree in a timely manner. From our experience, we are happy to recommend Petrelli Previtera.

Regina is very professional and a very caring attorney. So happy she’s representing me!

— Doug h

I have met a few lawyers in my life and I can say that meeting the lawyers from this firm was truly a great experience. The moment I exchanged words with one of the lawyers here, I then knew that this law firm was exactly what I was looking for. Diana was the best attorney for my case. It’s been a year since my separation from my now ex, I finally decided to settle and work on the divorce. It was quite an ordeal and the experience of working with my attorney was fruitful. The issue of child support was resolved effortlessly and professionally. What I also like about her was that she was very responsive, reassuring and very cooperative. Walked me through from start to finish. Even all the questions I had were answered well and with honesty. I am definitely recommending her and this law firm to anyone looking for a reliable and skilled lawyer.

— Gary S.

Highly recommended, Thomas made a huge difference in my family’s lives. He helped us with a complex child support involving multiple states, and my difficult ex. Every step of the way, I felt well-advised and secure in his competence. He and his excellent staff provided clear and quick communications. They also managed a last-minute curve ball with grace and skill. Their strength and compassion supported me through what could have been a difficult and confusing battle. With him on our side, I felt confident that we made the best decisions.

— Irene Morton

Hiring Thomas would be a great experience. He was so calm, professional, well mannered, and super understanding. Divorce process is a very stressful process, but with the help of Thomas everything went really fine. Thanks a lot!

— Sharon Powell

Fighting for a child custody isn’t an easy battle, but I’m so happy I’ve got the best attorney in town. My husband was telling lies just to secure a restraining order that would throw me out the house and would hinder me to see my child, position himself to get the custody of our child. It was the most devastating moment of my life of being a parent and leave me no choice. A very helpful friend referred me to Petrelli Previtera law firm and Attorney Regina Tuchinsky took my case and represent me at the court hearing. Atty. Regina won the Dissolving of my Restraining Order without a fuss and I am home with my daughter after! Highly approved!

— Amanda S.

I’m so glad that I’ve found the right one for me at Petrelli Previtera. I’ve worked with Attorney Melinda Previtera and she guided me through the entire journey. Not only she was straightforward, she also sweet, kind, generous, and very compassionate with me. I found her extremely knowledgeable and 100% honest. She was efficient with all the settlement process and kept me a with a minimum cost. Life isn’t always fair, but at least having her in my corner, felt even better. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!

Never thought that consulting legal expert is hard. Especially if you don’t know where to turn to or who’s the best in that field. Luckily, a friend of mine suggested Petrelli Law. So I went into their office and noticed that they have friendly staff, even the lawyers are approachable too. So I went ahead and told them my problem. Tom gave my advice on what to do next and everything has fallen into place. It was not an easy route, but everything went well after. Thank you Tom and Petrelli Law. You are the best.

Thank you Thomas for giving your all on the child support case. I asked my ex-husband for support but he just ignored my calles and he wont even talk to me in person so I hired Attorney Petrelli to work on legal matters. The case went to court because my ex-husband refused to give the proper child support. We had a few court sessions and my ex-husband was forced to give the child support. Thanks to the perseverance of Attorney Thomas, our case won.

— Katie Fletcher

My wife was terrible to me. She was stubborn and irrational. My lawyer was great. He stayed level headed when opposing lawyer and wife did not and when I did not and because of his demeanor and experience, we came out on top. Great communication throughout. I am recommending him and his team to everyone that has some money, some kids and needs a good litigation team.
