Selling my house was a little problematic. Michael Fedele and Robert Matozzo were the Dream Team. They were quick to respond to the problems and provided intelligent and common sense guidance. My options were clearly laid out. I would highly recommend this firm. They are topnotch!

Vivian and her team created a Revocable Trust for my mom several years ago and it protected my handicapped brother and gave mom great peace of mind. More recently, Vivian helped us with a complicated real estate transaction. Throughout the process she was proactive, responsive and most importantly, accurate and effective in her counsel and guidance. She was responsive and timely in her communications and gave clear and precise instructions and recommendations resulting in a (and I don't use this term lightly,) perfect execution of the process and closing. And just as important, my 91 year old mom liked and trusted her without question. I would recommend this team without reservation.

I’ve worked with Schneider Garrastegui & Fedele on a couple occasions and I could not have been more happier. We hired Mr Fedele esq to help with elder law concerning my father in-law and becoming an admin to an estate. Mr Fedele esq was very thorough in explaining every aspect of the case and what steps we needed to take. The whole process was extremely seamless without any interruption to our daily routine. When we had a question to ask, it was immediate. After having such a wonderful experience, my wife and I used them on 2 other occasions. We had Vivian Garrastegui help with a Medicaid application when my mother in-law needed to apply. We also needed a real-estate attorney when we were in the market to purchase a new home and again Mr Fedele made it happen! Even after completion of the cases, he always takes our call and helps us with any questions. I cannot speak more highly of this law firm!

Good, Solid, Timely Legal Help Became Necessary Little more than a year ago, I found myself in a desperate situation. My mom had become unable to care for herself alone in her home, and my brother and I could not provide her with the proper care and attention she deserved. With practically no options or resources to help my mom, a friend suggested I call the law firm of Schneider & Garrastegui. I could not be more pleased with the attention given to my mom's situation, and the great results that were achieved by the elder care attorney on her behalf. Thank you Schneider & Garrastegui for the help we needed to make sure my mom could live with dignity and in comfort.
