“I would definitely recommend peter as a divorce lawyer to anyone who asks. I was going through a very ugly separation and felt I needed to get advice on how to proceed with a divorce. Peter's advice and counseling provided me with the expert information I needed. My biggest concerns were a property I inherited before I was married and access to my two kids. Peter not only secured these for me but also negotiated a few other things that I was not considering. All in all this firm provided me with expert help at a time that was very traumatic for me and would highly recommend them.”
“Peter Cedeño is an extraordinary matrimonial attorney!! He is very knowledgeable in his field and a very well spoken man. If it weren't for his expertise and his knowledge of the court system my divorce would have been a total nightmare. I highly recommend him to any one that is in need of a divorce attorney. I was going through a very bitter divorce process and he fought for my rights against all odds. Always took the time to address my concerns and made himself accessible to me. I must say that I am very pleased with the outcome of my divorce process and more importantly in matters where my children are concern. Peter's work ethics have my sincere respect and admiration.”
“I went through a difficult divorce this year and Peter handled it very well from start to finish. My ex was not nice!It was a lengthy process (10 months), we went to court several times and we won. I would recommend this lawyer to anyone who is considering divorce.”
