We went to court several times and we won

I went through a difficult divorce this year and Peter handled it very well from start to finish. My ex was not nice! It was a lengthy process (10 months), we went to court several times and we won. I would recommend this lawyer to anyone who is considering divorce. - RENEE

Peter Cedeno, trustful and understanding, the attorney you want on your side

During a terrible and confusing time in your life, it is always smart to have the best on your side. Mr. Cedeno did that for me, he made sure all my questions and concerns were tended to. Anyone going through a divorce knows how scary and confusing it can be. I recommend that if you're going through a difficult time that you turn to Mr. Cedeno. He truly is trustful and understanding, the attorney you want on your side. - LORENA, BROOKLYN

Delivered on what was discussed and promised

I would definitely recommend Peter as a divorce lawyer to anyone who asks. I was going through a very ugly separation and felt I needed to get advice on how to proceed with a divorce. Peter's advice and counseling provided me with the expert information I needed. My biggest concerns were a property I inherited before I was married and access to my two kids. Peter not only secured these for me, but also negotiated a few other things that I was not considering. All in all, this firm provided me with expert help at a time that was very traumatic for me and I would highly recommend them. - XAVIER

Attentive and fought vigorously for my rights

Mr. Cedeño really helped me get out of a jam. He was attentive and fought vigorously for my rights. Exactly what I needed at a vulnerable time. - SUSAN

I was impressed with the knowledge that he possesses in his field

My experience with Mr. Cedeño was a very pleasant one. I didn't retain his services because I haven't resided in New York long enough to file for a divorce and my husband unfortunately resides in Florida. Nevertheless, the services rendered during our meeting left me very impressed with his kindness and compassion. More importantly, I was impressed with the knowledge that he possesses in his field; a very well-rounded man. Sometimes we base our reviews on our own personal negative circumstances whether because of a fallen out relationship, child custody issues or another legal issue that didn't turn out to what our expectations were. We therefore point the finger at the attorney and forget that there are laws that, whether we like it or not, we often have to abide by them. Yes, I know they don't always turn out in our favor. We forget that they are not just lawyers, they are human beings and just like us, they experience good and bad days in their everyday life; it is easier to put the finger at someone else rather than accepting responsibility for our own actions or our own misfortunes. Peter Cedeño is an outstanding attorney, a man dedicated to his field. I am happy to have received his services and hope that when the time comes, I have someone like him to represent me. - VENUS VLASINE

Highly recommend him to any one in need of a divorce attorney

Peter Cedeño is an extraordinary matrimonial attorney!! He is very knowledgeable in his field and a very well-spoken man. If it weren't for his expertise and his knowledge of the court system, my divorce would have been a total nightmare. I highly recommend him to anyone that is in need of a divorce attorney. I was going through a very bitter divorce process and he fought for my rights against all odds. Always took the time to address my concerns and made himself accessible to me. I must say that I am very pleased with the outcome of my divorce process and more importantly in matters where my children are concerned. Peter's work ethics have my sincere respect and admiration. - ERNESTO
