John helped me and my family through the medicaid process for a loved one from beginning to end. John was always there for us, promptly returning our calls, emails, etc. John was knowledgeable, efficient, compassionate, kind and understanding. He was so easy to talk to and we felt that he was honest and sincere and had our best interest at heart. We also felt that the advice John gave us was the same as he would give to his own family and that meant alot to us. I would recommend John Virdone in a heartbeat.
A LAWYER WITH GREAT CONSIDERATION AND EVEN BETTER KNOWLEDGE
When I consulted with John Virdone, I was touched by his considerate attitude and knowledge of what I was dealing with in my ex-husband's belated challenge to my divorce decree. Mr Virdone was honest in his concerns about my case and encouraging of my making my own decision about proceeding. He was masterful in teasing out the documentary evidence required to prevail in my cross motion and I'm grateful to have sought out his legal representation.
Excellent attorney with ethics, integrity and a heart
I recently had the displeasure of enduring a highly contentious and difficult divorce against an extremely bitter, unrealistic and deceptive ex. The process was painful but John made it manageable and fought hard to win the best possible outcome with a court system riddled with apathy and bias. John was highly knowledgeable, thorough, tenacious and dedicated. Pretty much everything you need in the person tasked with fighting a battle that can impact the remainder of your life.
I highly recommend John to anyone looking for the best possible outcome that can be attained

I was expertly represented during my divorce. John took the time to fully listen to my concerns, and gave me his undivided personal attention. I hope that you don't have to go through divorce, but if you do, use JOHN VIRDONE.

John Virdone is simply put - a great litigator. My reason for saying this is that he is always exceedingly well prepared when he steps into a courtroom to advocate on your behalf. He knows "THE LAW" and he uses it to his client's best interest. My custody case was a very complicated matter, and he handled it masterfully. His attention to detail is on par with anyone's.

These attributes combine to make him a very formidable advocate to put forth the best representation that one might reasonably expect. Mr. Virdone's firm is the quintessential embodiment of professionalism. [..] I attended St. John's law and I am not without knowledge of the workings of the law. However, Mr. Virdone always advised me of what would be best for my child and me during an extremely difficult proceeding.
My calls were always returned swiftly - no matter how large or small the issue. Moreover, the level of true human care and compassion afforded me and my particular situation by Mr. Virdone was truly heartfelt and reassuring. Everything concerning the actual adjudication of my case was handled first rate. [..] My case became landmark case law in the area of Family Law in The State of New York, and […] it has affected so many other families in this state and beyond. Mr. Virdone did not disappoint in his most adept handling of this legal matter. Moreover, I had retained other counsel prior to Mr. Virdone handling this custody proceeding. I would be kind to say that this prior firm had made a shambles of the prospect of my ever having custody of my child. The immediate respect shown Mr. Virdone in court is a direct reflection of the thoroughness and toughness that he and his firm are well known for. Truly, at the end of the day, I felt I had not only won the right to raise my child as I see best, but, I also gained a friend- and was part of a larger sense of family.
Mr. Virdone and his firm are fundamentally some of the most fair, skilled and decent people that I have ever had the distinct pleasure and privilege of knowing. I unequivocally recommend Mr. Virdone to anyone in need of THE BEST legal advocacy available. Period! I realize all of this is high praise, but this is all happily the case as it is. As I said in another sense earlier, you will never be disappointed in retaining John Virdone as your attorney.

You see, I have had other attorneys and firms represent me. So, my humble advice is go with THE BEST - and leave the rest. A word to the wise should be sufficient.

I'm a returning client of Mr. Virdone, my new case is support modification. I just injured my foot which require surgery and a 3-4 month recovery time. My ex an I do not talk at all. Communicating with the court is impossible (phone just rings) to inform them of my injury and I may not be able to send my support. Called John and he took care of everything. Told me to just rest and get my foot better. I always show up for (I reside in Maryland) court too fight for my son, John made my wife and I feel assured he will make sure the magistrate understand my injury has sideline me.
John's interpersonal skills reveal an attorney who cares ...
John Virdone has represented me for more than eight years, primarily in the areas of family law, landlord and tenant matters, and real estate practice. Without reservation, I can state that his legal acumen, litigation skills, and negotiating techniques are masterful. As a certified paralegal, I am often in a position to judge an attorney's skill level. John has an outstanding grasp of the law. This is no more evident than in his superior motion practice, comprehensive legal research, and remarkable history of prevailing in complex cases.
Moreover, John's interpersonal skills reveal an attorney who cares deeply about his clients' welfare. His compassion is the foundation upon which the attorney-client relationship is built. Time and again, I find that this foundation reinforces the ease of communication so necessary when matters become complicated or require sophisticated analyses. John has the unique ability to explain without resorting to legal jargon which many clients may find difficult to understand. Likewise, when a matter is fraught with emotion, John has the resourcefulness needed to reassure and encourage. It is a great relief to know that one's attorney is a source of trust, confidence, and well-grounded hope.
John Virdone is simply an outstanding litigator.
John Virdone is simply an outstanding litigator. He represented me in the Queens County Family Court in a highly contested grandparent custody/visitation matter that was on going for more than two years. My case was exceptionally difficult. Many attorneys before Mr. Virdone failed to apprehend the legal issues at stake; however, Mr. Virdone patiently worked through my case. As a respondent, and a parent, I was devastated and felt lost and alone. However, when I hired Mr. Virdone, he helped me overcome the complex legal issues in the case involving: ACS, Police investigation, order of protection, and forensic reports. His knowledge of family law is superb and his preparation for the trial was flawless.
During the trial, Mr. Virdone nailed the issue regarding of this particular grandparent's intrusion into the life of our family. She made a false report to the authorities that my new husband was abusive to my child and then later on attempted to obstruct my husband's petition to adopt my child after the authorities found no wrong doing. Mr. Virdone's sharp cross-examination questions made the forensic psychologist reverse his prior recommendation and to now recommend that future visitation should be limited and supervised. His cross-examination of the forensic expert shifted the Judge's perspective to limit the existing grandparent's visitation. The outcome was that the other party requested to settle for much less visitation; even before the trial was over. I am fully satisfied with the result.
John is the most trustworthy of them all.
John is a man of integrity, skill and knowledge. He represented me in a viciously contentious custody matter involving parental alienation and he did an outstanding job. As an attorney myself (corporate law), I have met hundreds of attorneys in my 25 years of practice; John is the most trustworthy of them all. Before John came into the picture, I hadn't spent a Christmas with my sons in six years and my family was kept away from them by my ex. I am looking forward to a holiday homecoming with my sons and family, which includes their presence at my ailing mother's 75th birthday party. John made it happen.
