    I am blessed to have him as my attorney. He is my 4th lawyer. The others have left me feeling abandoned, and broke with minimal results. Mr. Palmisano has great integrity and values. I witnessed him work hard to get a good result. He is aggressive and will not give up. I have seen the impossible become possible. Miracles do happen!

    Mr. Palmisano came highly recommended to me and he did a great job handling my very complicated divorce. He returned my phones calls and kept me focused on what was important for my child and I. He always took the time out to listen to me and what I felt was important even if it wasn't in the long run. I would recommend him to anyone who is going through a divorce and has children involved because he knows what he is talking about and will do his very best for you and your children.
