Testimonials"I retained Kathy Tomeo on a referral from a friend who described her as a "Shark". Kathy was anything but a Shark in person but was definitely on point and all business when it came to arguing my case. Kathy has a tremendous amount of experience with family law. We discussed my goals and presented options which allowed us to develop a plan based upon her experience, knowledge and what the court would allow according to the Law. Kathy was always honest with me and never gave me false hope as to what to expect as the decision is always up to the Court. Kathy researched similar cases to mine and sighted case law, which we believe, help the Court render its judgment.
Kathy and her assistant Brianne always treated me with respect. The communication flow was ever constant either in writing or via phone. Brianne worked extremely hard on my case and helped me understand the process and what to expect. I was never left to feel alone and a bother during this entire process as there were never any "stupid/dumb" questions. Kathy and Brianne were a great team to work with during one of the most stressful and emotional times in my life. I have recommended Kathy Tomeo to friends and will use her again in future judgments."

"In all of the dealings I have had with Ms. Tomeo these past years, she's always had my best interest and has kept me well informed of all the proceedings. I never felt left out. I was always part of the decisions made. I feel she is an exceptional attorney, it's too bad more are not like her!"

More Testimonials"I was incredibly fortunate to have Kathleen Tomeo represent me through my divorce. Her knowledge and expertise in the field of family law was far superior to any other attorneys I interviewed prior to me retaining her services. Kathy and her amazing team were always at the ready when situations would arise that I did not know how to handle. She listened to my questions and concerns with an open mind and always had the most effective and logical advice for any situation I was dealing with. She is extremely well respected throughout the courthouse and, more importantly, in the actual courtroom. Kathy always took a personal interest in not only how the results of my case affected myself, but how they affected my immediate family. Her professionalism, compassion and expertise is beyond anything I could have ever hoped for and I am grateful for having her on my side. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know that is in need of her services."

"When getting a divorce, I first hired an attorney I found online. After a several weeks following up and finding he had done nothing (not even filed the paperwork) I was referred by a friend to Kathy Tomeo. What a find! Kathy and Brianne were very knowledgeable, responsive and efficient. They never dropped a ball and their fees were more than fair. You will not find a better team out there."
