Lindsey is great! She helped me gain joint custody of my 2 daughters. She knew my case just as well as I did. She was always prepared and right on point every time. I’d highly recommend!!! Thanks Lindsey!


She represented me during a very hard custody battle and I am forever thankful for her and how hard she worked on my case. I cannot recommend Lindsey enough!


Lindsey represented me during my custody dispute. She was always very responsive and offered great advice. She handled herself well in court and always conveyed my thoughts effectively. She was very supportive during an extremely difficult time. I would highly recomment Lindsey to anyone needed a family law attorney 


Oliver Loewen

Cristan Landry
I had the pleasure of working with Attorney Lindsey Dulkis Patten for my divorce. She walked me through everything I needed to know for the proceedings as well as reminded me of things to keep in mind for my and my daughter’s future. Her main goal was to make sure things were fair and taken care of for my 5 year old. She responded quickly to all my emails even the foolish ones. She made me feel comfortable and calm while assuring me it would all be ok. She was able to finalize everything during the first hearing with the judge, no pretrial needed! Not to sound corny but if you’re looking for someone authentic and willing to work hard for what’s jus (especially when children are involved) she’s your lady! 


Barry Swift

Attorney Jean Porcello-Guisto is driven by her intense professionalism, honesty and desire to provide her clients with the best possible outcome for whatever the issue at hand may be! If you are looking for honest, compassionate and aggressive representation the folks at Porcello Law Offices are, without a doubt, the people you need to contact. Barry Swift, Salem Ma 


Joe Unni
Reflecting on my experience with Porcello Law Office, I can honestly say it was a positive one. I really believe that the whole staff had my best interests at hand and never once felt that my concerns were not considered. They were patient with my questions and answered with concise, easy to understand language all while being aware of what their services cost, thus keeping costs in mind. They represented this dad as diligently as they represent moms. I would 100% retain their services again were I to need them.
