“During a terrible and confusing time in your life it is always smart to have the best on your side. Mr. Cedeno did that for me, he made sure all my questions and concerns were tended to. Anyone going through a divorce knows how scary and confusing it can be. I recommend that if your going through a difficult time that you turn to Mr. Cedeno. He truly is trustful and understanding, the attorney you want on your side.”
“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.”
“Mr. Cedeño was definitely a competent lawyer that fought for my rights during a difficult time. He was knowledgeable and was always accessible when ever I had any questions or concerns.”
