What Our Clients Say About Us

Your search stops here. Call them you will not regret it! Reegler & Tornese helped me with a dissolution of marriage. I personally worked with Larry Tornese, he provided professional and knowledgeable service. He took the time to first understand all the intricacies of our case and then explained each step of the process. I appreciated that he gave me detailed guidance of each step in layman's terms. Our initial consultation was very informative, he presented via phone conference what to expect from state requirements; child related issues, time sharing, child support and equitable distribution. When we concluded the consultation I knew I wanted to work with him, he made me feel like he had my best interest in mind. As we progressed through the process, I felt very comfortable and he continued to impress me with his professionalism and experience. He provided drafts of each item to be submitted to review so that my spouse and I could take our time to decide what best suited our situation. He was very responsive to answer any questions I had. He has so much experience that he could provide real life examples of similar cases and usually answered my questions before I was able to ask. Let's face it, divorces are not easy. I am extremely pleased with the time and support he provided me during such a difficult time. In the middle of an epidemic Reegler & Tornese made it very convenient to remain safe. I was pleasantly surprised that everything was done electronically or by phone. Even the parenting course was offered virtually through video conference. They were organized and did a great job of keeping me up to date with the status and next step throughout the process. They were timely with the case filings and entire process took less than 3 months. I am extremely satisfied with the competency and care provided by Reegler & Tornese. I would highly recommend them. If I ever have family law matters to attend to, I'll never think twice about going back to Reegler & Tornese."

"Divorce is never easy, regardless the circumstances. But working with Larry Tornese, through my entire process was phenomenal from start to finish. Any question, doubt, issue I thought I had he had a solution to. He made sure my best interest was at hand along with my families, and I could not feel more comfortable with an office to handle my case. I’d recommend him to anyone I know. Trusting, knowledgeable and being sympathetic to my concerns and fears and being on top of every detail is what definitely set him apart for me. I’m forever grateful this chapter to my life is closed, and grateful I had a lawyer like him to make sure I had everything I needed to accomplish the best resolution."
