Thomas E. Mulinazzi, Esq.
My divorce was the most stressful period in my life so far. However, working with Mr. Thomas Mulinazzi was probably the best part of it. He is truly an outstanding legal mind. First, he calmly listened to my story in details and then devised a clear roadmap to achieve my goals. Second, he anticipated possible reactions from the other side and then planned and executed accordingly. That helped a lot to close the case quickly. Third, he promptly and diligently replied and answered all my questions and emails. Fourth, his billings were clear and reasonable. Fifth, his calm demeanor and clear guidance were very assuring to me. In the end, he also gave me some advice on how to get back to normal life after such an ordeal. I am glad that I worked with him.
