Trish had our child's best interest at heart and was genuine and reassuring during our custody case. As our adversary was making wild accusations, Trish never once wavered, stuck to facts and procedures, and attained the results we hoped for, and more. She truly is a professional that has honed her skills to be the best, keeping children the forefront of each case. I am happy to say as a result of Trish's work our child has flourished since the custody arrangement took place.
“I recommend Joseph “Bud” Murphy. I hired him six to twelve months ago and he handled my Divorce / Separation matter. Bud came recommended to me by a friend, and was I glad that she referred him. He was very professional, protective, and knowledgeable. Not knowing how the whole divorce process works, Bud was the perfect guide to help me navigate through the stresses, with some humor too, which made me much more comfortable. Bud’s advice was always helpful and he is a straight shooter, telling you things that you may not want to hear but need to. Bud didn’t make me feel like he was my lawyer but that he was my friend. I would HIGHLY recommend Joseph “Bud” Murphy to anyone that is looking for a great divorce attorney.”
“A divorce is a stressful time and having a knowledgeable attorney on your side makes a big difference. Joseph took the time to ensure he understood my concerns and did what he could to minimize the issues. Even when everything appeared to be going wrong and I was ready to give up, he was a strong advocate and kept me focused on the end goal. Through multiple court hearings, mediation sessions and email threads there was a consistency that was reassuring. Joseph is clearly well respected by other attorneys as was evidenced in his interaction in the court house sessions. Hopefully I never need to avail myself of his divorce services again but would gladly recommend him to others.”
“Thank you Tricia for all your kindness, hard work, patience, understanding, and being able to make it possible for me to be free! You are truly my hero in so many ways. I look forward to chatting with you in the future whenever it may be! Have a wonderful day!”
“Going through a divorce is an extremely hard experience. Having the right person represent you makes all the difference in the world! From knowing that the legal advice you are receiving is coming from someone who is fully knowledgeable in the many facets of family law, to as importantly, knowing that person can be trusted! I was fortunate enough to have both in Joseph ” Bud” Murphy. Bud is a consummate professional, while also lending the supportive shoulder that was very much needed at such a difficult period in my life. I always knew that no matter the time of day, I could always depend on Bud! He was never too busy to answer my emails, to take the time to explain the process of what needed to be done, and ALWAYS worked for my best interest! He brought a humanity to the table, always showing caring and respect in the most difficult stages of a long and treacherous divorce! As an attorney, he is top notch, but to surpass that as a human being would be difficult! Yet Bud does that with ease! Rarely, do you hear people say that their divorce attorney is their friend, but because Bud cares about his clients, and their children as people, he goes out of his way to show compassion, as well as, provide the best legal representation available! There are not enough positive accolades that I could be stow upon Bud! He truly is a master at “putting his client’s first”, which can be a rare commodity in any spectrum of business today. He made sure that I was protected, and fought for me to have the most positive outcome in a very contentious divorce. Bud’s degree of professionalism is unsurpassed and he is truly there for his client every step of the way! No attorney could be more committed to his client’s welfare! If you find yourself in the unfortunate position of needing a family law attorney, I would highly recommend Joseph “Bud” Murphy. He is the best of the best! I will be forever grateful for his kindness, knowledge, professionalism, and continued diligence on my behalf!”
“Tricia, You are an excellent lawyer! I’m very happy the way you handled my case. Our communication was great and you always answer my calls and my emails. Sometimes, very late in the evening. You put a lot of passion in my case fighting for my rights and because of you I have HOPE to start a new life.”
“Joseph Murphy is a very knowledgeable, honest lawyer that provided me with the tools and resources to be a success on my awaited court date of emancipation. Mr. Murphy could’ve easily charged me a lot of money to handle my case, but was honest by advising me that I had enough evidence to triumph in my case. Mr. Murphy’s positive advice and guidance assisted me to conquer my case and gain emancipation. I highly recommend Mr. Murphy to anyone who’s looking for an educated, honest, and fair lawyer.”
“Thank you Tricia for all your support and hard work while handling my divorce. I’m not sure I could have gone through with it if you had not been there with me in the beginning.”
"I met Patricia Cistaro when she was a senior associate attorney working for a large family law practice in New Jersey. During my initial consultation with Patricia, she advised me of the requirements to support a viable alimony modification case. I was impressed with her expertise and candidness, so when I felt it was the right time to petition the courts for alimony modification, I sought out Patricia and found that she had started her own practice. I engaged Patricia to represent me in a motion to modify or terminate my alimony obligation due to a significant change in circumstances, my approaching retirement age, and my ex-wife’s suspected cohabitation. Patricia provided valuable guidance to me with regard to obtaining evidence and providing documentation that I needed to support my case. She communicated with my ex-wife and espoused the benefits of trying to reach an agreement of modification without the necessity of filing a costly motion. Patricia communicated to my ex-wife the date we intended to file a motion with the court if we were unable to negotiate a modification. Just before the expiration of the deadline, my ex-wife gave notice of her imminent marriage and shortly thereafter signed a Consent Order that officially terminated my alimony obligation. During Patricia’s engagement, I received "big" firm legal expertise and experience, but with a comfortable "small" firm closeness. Hopefully, I will never need to engage the services of a family law attorney again, but if I did, I would hire Patricia Cistaro without reservation."
