  • Why I know Mike Detommaso is a great family law attorney.
    In 2010 I was introduced to Mike DeTommaso regarding my divorce from my non working outside of the house wife of over 16 years. It was probably the most difficult time of my life. I had three young children and all I wanted was to make this as easy on them as it possibly could be. Due to my ex wife's attorney and his desire to extract as much money from the situation they could , the process of finalizing my divorce took almost four years. That being said, Mike DeTommaso was fantastic through out the entire ordeal. There were many times over the four years of my divorce where I became very emotional and angry and all I wanted to do was to fight back at some of the demands from my ex-wife and her attorney. Mike would always calm me down and help me see things through the legal eyes of the system even if I disagreed. He showed me what was worth arguing for and he made sure that we were fighting for what was right and not just for emotional victory. Mike would point out the areas that he felt we would win and he made sure that he pointed out the areas that he didn't think we would win. This is why I know that Mike is a great attorney. He would say " I know you are emotional and angry and if you want to fight it I will but, I don't think we will win this argument and I don't want to have to charge you for it" Mike gave me great legal advice and recommendations during the entire process and highly I recommend that if you ever need any form a family law council that you call upon Mike and his team. You will be very happy with the outcome. Jeff Durr

  • Michael Is the BEST
    After only a few meetings, Michael De Tommaso was able to terminate my alimony payments. He's direct and delivers on his promises.

  • A Tough Experience Made Better
    Unlike many of Michael's clients, my pending divorce was not particularly contentious, and there were no issues regarding custody. However, that did not mean that everything was going to be easy. When I met Michael, I was immediately impressed with his desire and ability to listen and ask the questions that pertained to my open items and concerns. His responses were direct, to-the-point, relevant, and guided me through the process. The issues actually occurred when my ex-wife's attorney wanted to change agreements that she and I had reached amicably and had documented in our MSA. After several months of this, my ex-wife actually asked me if Michael could finalize the rest of our paperwork and guide us through the end-legal process. With his usual aplomb, Michael handled the finalization of our divorce, in the same amicable manner that we had aspired to since we opted to end our marriage. What does this mean? Michael is terrific at handling the most complex of cases, and those that just require guidance and solutions. I recommend Michael and his Firm with no hesitation, and my recommendation to anyone starting the process: Be prepared, have questions, know your asset base, and tell Michael your goals. No one will do a better job in ensuring your goals are met.

  • I knew they would do everything within their power to ensure that I obtained a fair and equitable settlement.
    I am writing this review before my divorce has been settled because I am so impressed, I can't wait any longer to write my review. I contacted DeTommaso Law Group after a failed attempt at Collaborative and being stalled in the litigation process with another attorney for a year and a half. If I had contacted them at the beginning of my divorce process, it would have taken months instead of years. I worked with Kevin Lauterman and Michael DeTommaso. What an amazing team! Kevin was compassionate and is an incredible communicator. Emails were answered within hours and I was involved every step of the way. Michael immediately initiated the appropriate Motions and issued subpoenas to obtain missing Discovery. His no-nonsense approach accomplished more in a few months than my previous attorney had accomplished in years. Their intimate knowledge of marital laws, legal decisions, and my "rights" inspired confidence. They knew I was on a tight budget and they were extremely fair with their billing. My divorce was the hardest thing I've even gone through, but they made it as painless as possible by being compassionate and professional. Most importantly, I knew they would do everything within their power to ensure that I obtained a fair and equitable settlement.
    Additional Comment: My divorce is finally over after almost 4 years! Micahel and Kevin were the best thing that happened to me during this extremely and stressful process. I can't thank them enough.

  • You'll want this guy on YOUR side!
    "Merciless, yet tactful"… Mr. Michael DeTommaso represented me to gain full custody of my son and a motion for order to enforce litigant's rights, both were a win/win! I went to Mr. DeTommaso because he came highly recommended by his fellow peers as being aggressive/merciless to get the job done, yet tactful to use the "strong arm" only when needed. Michael's "no-nonsense" presentation of the motions gave me an obvious advantage going into court and superb conclusion before the Judge! "You'll want this guy on YOUR side!"

  • I really have nothing but the nicest things to say.
    I would like to thank Michael J Detommaso for him for helping me through my divorce and difficult time. While going through my divorce with an attorney I felt was not looking out for my best interest I decided to hire a different attorney. I contacted Michael Detommaso and from the moment I first spoke to him until the end of the process he has been a pleasure to work with. I am grateful to have a lawyer like him as his firm in my corner. He was responsive, a straight talker to the point, kept me in the loop and always returned my calls. He provided me with superb service. I really have nothing but the nicest things to say about Michael Detommaso and his firm. I highly recommend him. OVER ALL GREAT SERVICE

  • Made me feel welcome like I was their top client and they were always available to me.
    I had the pleasure of hiring Michael DeTommaso as my lawyer to help guide me through my divorce in 2011. A divorce is one of the most emotional and stressful situations a person can go through, especially when children are involved. Choosing the right person to be your lawyer is critical to dictating the outcome that will set the stage for the rest of your life. I am pleased to write here that I made the right choice. The first time I met with Michael he set me at ease with his professionalism, competence and approachable manner. From the first phone call, Michael and his entire office made me feel welcome like I was their top client and they were always available to me. Every time I came in to meet with Michael I was never rushed, he always allowed for as much time as I needed to talk through the matters at hand. He was smart, took control and was a leader in the back and forth between lawyers. he never let me make an emotional decision or send any emotionally charged correspondence. We acted as a team to get it done... and his level of attention and responsiveness was critical to my well being during that stressful time. There is nothing worse than going through a divorce where every day feels like a week as you wait to hear about the fate of your financial situation, the custody of your children, who will get the house....so a phone call that is returned within a few minutes or hours instead of returned in a week or longer makes all the difference. I have since witnessed friends who have gone through divorces and I have I cringed as I see the experiences they have had with their lawyers not responding for weeks on end. Michael and his staff turn things around quickly and make accuracy and responsiveness their top priority. I never had to wait more than an hour for Michael to respond to an email I may have sent or a phone call I made even on weekends. He was always reachable and responsive. He has a deep knowledge and vast experience with Divorce law and was full of sound advice and helped me manage my emotional state as I tried to make the best decisions for my situation. Michael also did a terrific job making sure to review the settlement agreement from every angle and loophole to protect my best interests. I have since recommended him to friends and family and will continue to do so.

  • I was very pleased by the service provided by Attorney Michael DeTommaso.
    I was very pleased by the service provided by Attorney Michael DeTommaso for filing annulment case of my daughter in 2007. My daughter remarried and enjoying a very happy married life with a handsome husband and 2 lovely kids. I am approaching Michael for divorce of my son for a similar service. I recommended him to my contacts.
