He was on top of things throughout, always patient and empathetic. When things got tough he was a strong defender and he had embodied my situation when I needed him to do that.read more

I retained Attorney Anthony Sokolowski for my very difficult and complicated divorce and custody case. Anthony was not... only knowledgeable but personable and I never felt alone throughout process. Anthony was always honest and genuine with me, he was always available and made me feel safe in the fact that he was fighting for my and my child’s best interest. I worked with Anthony for over a year and this held true throughout entire time. We ended with getting what I asked for and the best possible outcome for myself and my child.I highly recommend Anthony Sokolowski for any family law needs.read more
