What to Expect When Hiring Our Office

The first appointment is a free consultation.  Once you decide to hire our office to represent you, you will be charged a retainer fee.  A retainer fee is an advance payment  for the future anticipated legal fees and costs, paid by the Client at the time our firm is hired, to be applied to the legal fees and expenses incurred and expended on your case as the matter proceeds forward in Court.  Our office sets its retainer amount after we discuss and determine the legal issues, legal strategy and anticipated litigation costs which are necessary to address your concerns and goals for the case.  If the entire retainer is not expended by the end of your case, the unearned portion is refundable.

As to the issue of legal fees and costs, virtually all legal fees are based upon the expenditure of time spent on your case.  The total cost of a case is based upon the amount of time spent on your case, coupled with the “out of pocket” or direct expenses, such as, court filing fees, expert witness fees and deposition costs.  Not all cases have all of these”out of pocket” expenses, however, depending upon the type of case, it is very common for most cases to have some type of “out of pocket” expenses.  You can also expect to receive an itemized bill, on a monthly basis, which will detail all of the time expended on your case, as well as all of the expenses incurred on your behalf.

Once we determine your case strategy, we will identify what documents and other information we will want you to compile for us to move forward in preparing the appropriate Court pleadings.  While you do not need to bring any documents with you to the initial consultation, if you have specific questions involving a prior court Order, bringing the prior Order with you will be helpful.

    Tony and his entire staff are phenomenal! Tony has gone above and beyond for my case, on multiple occasions. Not only is he an amazing attorney, he's an amazing person. During the most difficult time of my life, he fought for what was right and was ALWAYS there to answer my questions, explain things and even calm me down at times. I have, and will continue to, recommend Tony and his staff at every opportunity. I can't say enough good things about him! 8 Months after my last review, the custody case that Tony and Lisa have been fighting with me is coming to a close. And same as before, I can't say enough good things about Tony and Lisa. They are amazing, supportive, knowledgeable and so much more! Having the two of them by my side through all of this has truly been a blessing!

    We cannot rate Anthony Greco high enough. 5 stars does not begin to describe what you get when you hire the best, which is Tony! He continuously went after the truth, represented the truth in my case and after a 3-year-long custody and divorce battle, I won full custody of my son and received everything I wanted in the divorce. Both Tony and Lisa are superb lawyers who will fight for justice on your behalf. Tony is a pit bull in court and is impressive under pressure in the court room. We always felt that we had a strong team working for us and had our best interest and the interest of the child always. Tony is a fantastic person as much as attorney. When the stakes get high and highly emotional, he has a way of calming you down and also encouraging you. He's straight to the point, doesn't mix words and gets the job done. If you want someone who will swing for the fences when the going gets tough and won't quit fighting for you, Anthony Greco is your man! We look forward to continuing our relationship if/when something should arise where we need the best!

    I can not say enough about how great my experience with this firm. Lisa specifically was very involved with my case and helped to put me in the best possible situation to have the best possible outcome. Anthony was always accessible as well, and I felt like I had a team behind me. By closely working with them and following their advice, I ended up getting the exact outcome in which I hoped for in the very beginning. My experience with them was night and day compared to the firm I dealt with years ago.Brett

    Anthony Greco and Aaron Kenter are the most professional, hard working, hard fighting, take-no-prisoners attorneys I have had the honor to represent me. I came to Tony Greco desperately needing help with my child custody case. My previous attorney screwed my case up something horrible. My previous attorney was weak, and not very experienced with contested custody cases, or tough opposing lawyers and magistrates. However, my previous attorney was a very, very nice guy..the HELL with that!!!!! I needed a lawyer who was smart, fearless, knowledgeable and experienced with the heart of a tiger shark! Anthony Greco and Aaron Kenter are textbook definitions of phenomenal, dedicated attorneys who get the job done! Because of these two gentlemen... They won my case, I have my son, I have peace of mind. and they taught my ex a lesson she will never forget! If you ever need lawyers who will fight like hell on your side, make you laugh when you think there is no hope in the world of you winning, and have a long proven track record of winning tough cases... look no further then the law firm of Anthony Greco! I cannot begin to thank them enough for what they have done for me and my son!

    I met Tony and his team a year into a very ugly child custody dispute. I hadn’t been aloud to see my daughter due to her Mother making baseless allegations because she had a personal axe to grind for over a year at that time. The courts had done very little in spite of me jumping through every hoop they asked while paying an attorney for little or no results and my situation seemed grim. Tony immediately and aggressively litigated my case and my situation progressively improved from the day we met. Ultimately, Tony was able to negotiate through relentless action for my ideal outcome. I can’t thank Tony and his staff enough for getting back my daughter. I would highly recommend Tony to anyone going through a difficult and/or complex custody dispute.
