What Our Clients Say

about Paul H. Townsend

Partner at TT&N

When you have a lawyer recommended by a nun you cant help but feel like your on the right track and from the second I met Paul, I knew he was the man for the job. He was straight forward, honest and understanding. With his sense of humor and confidence he able to put me at ease through some incredibly difficult times. Because of his years of experience I felt he had a handle on every aspect of my case and having two young children that was incredibly important for me. He really cared for me and my family beyond what I believe any average, everyday lawyer would and for that I am truly thankful and feel deeply in his debt.

about Dominic A. Tomaio

Partner at TT&N

Dominic is not only an excellent and very knowledgeable lawyer but also a fair and outright nice human being. He has a straight forward approach, can argue very well in front of a judge and has a sense of realism of what is achievable. Dominik is wonderful to work with and very efficient. Unlike many other divorce lawyers, Dominic is not trying to ignite conflict to generate fees. I fully appreciated his help and would recommend him strongly to any of my friends. In my experience with divorce lawyers, he is a rare "find".

about Laurie L. Newmark

Partner at TT&N

I found Laurie to be supportive, authoritative, decisive, strategic and compassionate. My divorce was lengthy and difficult with complications that Laurie handled with professionalism and dedication beyond words.

There a difficult life passages that one would not want to journey alone and this journey was a step for step, side by side process that has left me a stronger person with a hopeful future.

I would gladly speak to her expertise with anyone.
