Mr. Riezenman assisted me during the most difficult time in my life. He treated me with the utmost respect and kindness and I always felt that he had my best interest in mind. During meetings that involved especially emotional topics, Mr. Riezenman managed to keep everyone calm. He is a fantastic lawyer and I highly recommend him.
I had just went through the worst thing that could have ever happened to me, my wife wanted a divorce. Michael Walter Meyers was a God send. He was compassionate, caring, and professional, he made me laugh at a time when I just wanted to cry. He was on time with everything he said he would do and he got me a fair settlement. He did not allow me to make emotional choices that would affect me for the rest of my life. I am glad that Mr Meyers was my lawyer, I had interviewed two lawyers before I met Michael they were horrible!!! I am so glad I chose Mr Meyers as my Lawyer.
I can't thank Katelyn enough for working with me during my divorce. She was professional and very understanding through the whole process. The office staff was always knowledgeable and were always there to answer any questions regarding my case. I will always be grateful to Katelyn for her hard work and dedication. I was satisfied and I will high recommend Katelyn and the firm.
Debra Welsh was hired to work on my brother's behalf on his divorce case. She was amazing. And by that, I mean she was super conscientious, responded to emails and phone calls promptly (usually within 1 or 2 hours), and was extremely knowledgeable! She walked us through each step and let us know what to expect next. She was patient and most accommodating. The case is almost finalized and she's done an outstanding job from day one!!
Katelyn handled my petition to modify custody in Suffolk County Family Court from beginning to end. She was honest, knowledgeable and courteous. She promptly returned my phone calls and thoroughly answered my questions. My daughters and I were extremely happy with the outcome and we have Katelyn to thank for that.
My initial consultation was with Clifford Petroske in March 2015 and he told me to not give up, so I didn't. Clifford Petroske, Mike Meyers and their wonderful team helped me settle my “after divorce" family court custody case which involved custody of two children. EX was extremely spiteful, lied and did everything to try to make my life miserable. This included using unethical tactics to try to make me give up and constantly dragging the case on and on. I never allowed myself to give up and this law firm gave me the confidence to be strong in pursuing what was in the best interest for the children. This law firm helped change my life and the children's lives for the better.
Debbie was a great addition to the Petroske Law Firm. She was assigned my case from the lead partner and quickly familiarized herself, showing strong leadership. She was extremely diligent, detail-oriented, maintained an open line of communication and kept me abreast of any issues arising and needing attention. She was pragmatic and ultimately worked out a settlement , thus avoiding a protracted and painful litigation. I was delighted to have her as my attorney over the last few months.
Cliff represented me for a continued period of 7 months and was pragmatic from the onset when discussing my case. He clearly outlined the risks and opportunities and made himself available when required. His experience and wisdom were definitely put at work. He showed his willingness and preparedness to take my case to trial, although his team eventually was able to extract a settlement, which avoided a potentially protracted and painful litigation. I was pleased by the quality of the work provided by Cliff and his well-qualified team.
During the process of dealing with a very difficult divorce he kept focused on what was in my best interest. Ryan is very competent lawyer and is genuinely interested in helping his clients. He has the ability to be judicious in the application of the law and considers the effect upon peoples lives, so his heartfelt convictions keep the process balanced. After the agreement was reached Ryan continues to offer help, and has become more than my lawyer, I consider him my friend.
Some of the many qualities one looks for with an attorney is professionalism, realism, knowledge and effectiveness. Cliff Petroske has all of these, moreover, he surrounds himself with excellent staff, which in my view speaks volumes about the person. Petroske and his colleagues achieved more in 10 months than my previous lawyer in 3 years!
Going through a divorce is not only difficult, painful and expensive.....it is overwhelming....Ms Welsh was great about explaining all the details in a way I can understand them. She constantly had to deliver news that was unwelcoming, as it is in most divorces. She showed compassion, empathy and managed to "cool" me down. She was very reachable, which to me was comforting and important, I never had to wait long for responses. This process is long and at times excrutiating....and Ms Welsh was my calm in my "personal" storm. She helped me "see" reason time and time again in very unreasonable circumstances. I would highly recommend her services.
There simply are not words strong enough to describe how highly I recommend Mr. Meyers as an attorney. Faced with a complicated divorce case and an ex-husband who was determined to try to manipulate the legal system, I came to Mr. Meyers after having my previous attorney mishandle my case, leaving me facing an uphill battle. Mr. Meyers handled the transition with ease and immediately after meeting with him, I knew I was in good hands. Mr. Meyers is an extremely brilliant attorney who knows the law better than other attorneys practicing twice as long as he has. He is able to break down intricate legal matters into easy-to-understand language, and was always able to put me at ease in the most overwhelming situations. In addition to astutely handling the multifaceted aspects of a complex custody case, Mr. Meyers is quite genuinely the most compassionate, caring attorney you will ever meet. He has guided me through me some incredibly difficult times during my divorce and custody case, and treated me with patience, kindness, and understanding every step of the way. If you hire Mr. Meyers to represent you, I can assure you that you are in the best hands to handle your legal matters. You will never find an attorney with more integrity than Mr. Meyers, nor will you find someone better equipped to handle the most complicated cases or aggressive opposing attorneys. Thanks to Mr. Meyers, I got the outcome I had hoped for in my case. He believed in me even when there were times that I didn’t believe in myself, and pushed me to get the outcome I deserved. Every day that I look at my daughter as she grows up, I will be forever grateful to Mr. Meyers.
I cannot be more pleased with my experience with Clifford Petroske and his staff. While being both professional and personable, they were able to get me the results that I was seeking with my child support case in a reasonable amount of time. Should I encounter another issue in the future that requires legal representation, I will not hesitate to reach out to Cliff again.
When looking for a divorce lawyer, I wanted someone who I felt confident in and trusted. Someone who would take the time to explain all the legal terms, and answer all the questions I had. Ryan always made me feel like I was taking to a friend, who had my back, in a situation where I felt very vulnerable. I would highly recommend him!
Ryan was amazing in a very sensitive situation for myself. His guidance and professionalism is an asset that I would highly recommend to everyone. He was clear and understanding from the beginning to the end. I almost hated for it all to be over because he was a pleasure to have by my side. His demeanor was brilliant and always one step ahead of the opposition. Everyone at the firm, from the receptionist to the lawyers were sensitive to the nature of my proceedings. I truly thank them all!
Ryan was the attorney for my support and custody hearing. He was fantastic, patient, and knowledgable. Ryan's colors really fly with mediation, compromise, while still being stern and in the best interest for child and client. I have reached out to Ryan at all hours, days, court dates, with all calls/meeting returned in a timely fashion. I will be utilizing Ryan for all future court appearances and attorney related events.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Petroske and his staff for the excellent legal counsel they provided me during my divorce. It was an emotional and trying time in my life but Mr Petroske helped me through it all. He explained the law in detail to me and explained what both me and my ex were entitled to regardless of what or who caused the divorce and whether I liked it or not. There was no blowing smoke up my ass and promising me the world while all along reaching into my pocket for more money. Because of this I felt like I could trust Mr. Petroske from day one. Throughout the divorce the trust was always there and Since I was well informed and not mis-informed I was able to get my divorce resolved and finalized in a reasonable amount of time which enabled and helped me to move on with my life. In conclusion, If you are looking for an honest lawyer that specializes in divorce and separation, I would highly recommend Mr. Petroske. You will get a lawyer that is not looking only to get in your pocket but is looking to make sure you get a fair shake going thru the legal system.
For anybody looking for professionalism and hard work ethic this is the attorney to hire. I had the opportunity to work with Cliff and Molly, who worked diligently on my case always getting back to me right away with details and solutions. It's very reassuring to know the people who are working for you and with you are giving their all especially on such important matters. I want to Thank you for a job well done.
I am very thankful that I had the opportunity to have Cliff Petroske and his staff represent me during my divorce. Cliff's knowledge, compassion, attention to detail and attentiveness helped me greatly as I went through one of the most difficult periods of my life. I will never forget the calm professional demeanor and class Cliff showed during the entire process. Simply said I think Cliff is a wonderful trusted divorce attorney with a great support staff and I recommend him highly.
Going into this whole experience I was extremely anxious and worried about choosing a lawyer and had no idea how to even go about selecting the right one. After meeting with quite a few and leaving even more unsettled, I met with Ryan and immediately my doubts were put to rest. From the beginning, Ryan eased any anxieties I was feeling about the entire divorce process. He made an overwhelming process seem quite simple and painless as each step of the way he was very informative and patiently guided us through it. Put simply, Ryan "cares". I didn't want to be another "case" being pushed through the court and Ryan made that possible. He stayed on top of everything and made sure to address any concerns I had as well as kept me in the loop. I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone looking for a dedicated, caring professional!!
I contacted Cliff after doing some internet research looking for a lawyer who was knowledgeable in the processing of QDRO's. From our first meeting, I knew Cliff was the one who would be able to assist me through the challenging process so I would be able to retire. Cliff and his team worked together with my employer and were able to expedite the processing of my QDRO through the courts. What I liked about Cliff and his paralegal Colleen who worked together with me, they were very knowledgeable, professional, readily accessible, kept me informed and went above and beyond what I expected! This law firm is top notch and I would highly recommend them. I am forever grateful!
More than three years ago I started on a horrible journey of a painful and nightmarish divorce. From my first consultation with Cliff I was given hope and comfort. Over these past years I have truly felt that Cliff and his staff have been by my side, fighting this battle with me and for me. Cliff has an incredible team working for him, which in turn has been working for me. They are professional, compassionate, highly educated and go over and beyond to help you. I am nearing the end of this very trying time in my life and it is with complete gratitude that I thank Cliff and his team for getting me through this. If you or anyone you know have ever been through a divorce you know the horrible toll it can take on you emotionally and financially. It is because of Cliff that I am emerging from this divorce with a favorable outcome and an excitement for my future. There is no lawyer out there that will fight harder for you.
