  • Rebecca is the absolute best!!
    I hired Rebecca in August after wasting thousands of dollars on a dishonest lawyer who really did not care about me or my son. Rebecca represented me better than I could have ever imagined. She is an advocate who really cares and who will keep you informed, who will fight for you and be the voice that you need to represent you! Rebecca is the absolute best!!

  • Rebecca is beyond a lawyer!
    Rebecca is beyond a lawyer! She helped me and my finance get full custody of both of our children in what was a very complex and complicated situation in a very short period of time. Rebecca was always available, reliable, gave great advice, and was a "Jedi Knight" in the courtroom. I highly recommend Rebecca for custody matters - no matter how complex. I also recommend her for PFA and eviction matters. Can't thank her enough!

  • She was kind and fair yet firm when I needed her to advocate for me.
    Rebecca was more than my lawyer. She was my advisor throughout my whole divorce process from child custody, child support and finally equitable distribution. She knew the laws throughout the entire process. She was kind and fair yet firm when I needed her to advocate for me. Divorce is already so stressful, especially when children are involved but thankfully I had Rebecca by my side advocating and giving me ethically sound guidance. I couldn't imagine my children and I getting through this ordeal without her support and guidance. Rebecca was easy to reach by email, text or phone during the day and even after hours. If you are looking for a kind, passionate, ethical advisor then Rebecca is your lawyer!

  • She was always available and willing to help me with understanding the legality of everything.
    I was extremely satisfied with the services that Rebecca Kolsky provided me with on my difficult legal custody case. She was very passionate, understanding and caring through the entire process. She was always available and willing to help me with understanding the legality of everything from beginning to end. She was very fast in response to any questions or concerns that I had and available via e-mail to me, always!! A complete 5 star. I highly recommend Rebecca to anyone needing legal counsel. She is amazing in the court room. She definitely gets the job done!

  • Rebecca is a credit to her profession.

    Rebecca represented me in a child support case. In the initial free consultation she told me exactly what my options were, what to expect in the process and what the possible outcomes were. She negotiated with my daughter’s mother and tried to settle things before the conference. But my daughter’s mother was asking for more money than Rebecca thought she would get in the conference so, without rancor, she told my daughter’s mother we should do the conference. Rebecca arranged it so I didn’t need to be there and, as it turned out, I didn’t even have to join by phone. The conference was over within 15 minutes with a result that was exactly what she had told me to expect. Long story short, in Rebecca I found a lawyer I could trust and who represented me in exactly the way I wanted to be represented. She had my back and was effective without being divisive. Rebecca is a credit to her profession.

  • I want to emphasize the level of compassion and care I felt with every interaction I had with Rebecca.
    After having wasted money on an awful, heartless, money-grabbing lawyer at a different prestigious law firm I was feeling thoroughly dispirited. Thankfully a kind friend recommended Rebecca to me (after consulting a large group of her lawyer friends). From the get-go Rebecca was refreshingly professional whilst also being incredibly kind and understanding. She took the time to really understand the details of my somewhat complicated case and held my hand throughout the daunting process. I always felt like I had a strong ally in my corner advocating for my needs and for those of my child. Everything was dealt with in a timely manner, with Rebecca always paying careful attention to my changing circumstances ensuring the path we were on worked best for me. I want to emphasize the level of compassion and care I felt with every interaction I had with Rebecca. I will never forget how much she changed my life for the better and will be forever grateful for her amazing empathy as well as her sheer strength in standing up to my spouse's lawyer for me. She is the best and I 100% recommend her.

  • She knew what needed to be done, legally and personally.
    I was in a very sudden custody crisis and, in consultations with lawyers provided through my employer, I found many very impartial and dismissive. I sensed no confidence and figured this would be the norm from any lawyer I went to for help. I figured I would be on my own, learning how things worked as I went, while figuring out how to optimize dispassionate legal help. Then I found Rebecca! She knew what needed to be done, legally and personally. she listened, she empathized, she broke down every step and explained each option clearly. Knowing that time was an issue, she worked late to make sure everything was filed the next morning. Hiring her was the first breath of relief I found in the midst of that crisis and I am so grateful for her, and all of those who pushed me in her direction.

  • You will not regret hiring Rebecca and once you see her in action you will be grateful.
    Court, Custody, and lawyers are all very intimidating but when you have Rebecca in your corner, you know she will advocate for you as if you were her closest friend. She cares about me, and most importantly, my children. If your expectations or requests are unlikely, she will be honest with you. She does not waste your time or your money. She works for every penny and is relentless in her efforts to achieve the best outcome possible for her client. I am forever grateful that I am lucky enough to call her my attorney and would recommend her to anyone in need of an advocate who will know your case and fight for you. The woman will sacrifice sleep for days because she cannot rest unless she knows she is fully prepared to represent her client in court. You will not regret hiring Rebecca and once you see her in action you will be grateful that you were smart enough to choose her to represent you.

  • Thank you again Mr. Enrico for fighting and having your clients best interest at heart.
    I never write these reviews but after my experience with Mr. Enrico, I felt compelled to do something and share my experience. I was falsely accused by ex whom I broke up with of a form of abuse. I first consulted with Mr. Enrico whom immediately asked for texts even though I was not his client at that time and stated he would read through them and take time out of his busy schedule and give me an assessment of what I was facing. Mr. Enrico returned my call within two hours and basically stated this was a false PFA that should not have been given and gave me advice on how to move forward even if I wasn't going to retain him. The obvious choice I retained him went into court and through his great knowledge and stand firm approach with the petitioner attorney he was able to let them know we would stand firm and not accept any deals due to me his client committing no form of abuse towards the accuser. Because of Mr. Enrico approach the petitioner attorney was able to convince his client this matter was a lost cost and to withdraw their PFA which will be completed this week. I thank Mr. Enrico for his help and stand firm approach and will recommend him to family or anyone else whom I know if they are ever an a unfortunate matter as this and the future and recommend him to you whom reads this review. Thank you again Mr. Enrico for fighting and having your clients best interest at heart.

  • Rebecca is personable, easy to talk to and a great communicator.
    Rebecca is personable, easy to talk to and a great communicator. I have witnessed how she treats her clients first hand and she is a true professional. Through what can be a difficult time, Rebecca remains calm and levelheaded, which is extremely important in her field. I am lucky to work hand-in-hand with Rebecca to help our clients meet their goals.

  • Great attorney.
    I hired Mr. Pagnanelli to handle my divorce. He had been referred to me by a friend who is also an attorney, but who practices in a different area of law. Mr. Pagnanelli did a fantastic job in handling a complex divorce, a very contentious custody trial and our various support proceedings. He was fair and upfront with what to expect in the divorce and with what tactics to use in achieving results. Mr. Pagnanelli told me from day one that his goal was to settle the case and not run up the bill. He was true to his word. Unlike most attorneys, who in my experience try to file motion after motion when a simple negotiation can resolve the case, Mr. Pagnanelli actively sought to negotiate a settlement from day one and I really appreciate his work. Great attorney.

  • I HIGHLY recommend Ms. Testa if you need a top-notch professional!

    Maria is an outstanding attorney who puts the needs of the client first. She has an excellent knowledge of family law and is always available, even on weekends and at home after the birth of her baby. She is honest, compassionate and knows the system. She treats the client with respect and always has time for questions or concerns. I could not go through the difficult circumstances of my divorce without Maria.

    These women have helped me through some very challenging times. I have the utmost respect for them. I wish them the very best and am certain that they will achieve their goals through hard work and compassion."

    I secured Ms. Testa as my divorce attorney after a strong recommendation from a previous client of hers. Immediately, upon meeting her for the first time, I knew I wanted to secure her as my legal representative. For her firm's reputation and high caliber of performance, I found her to be more than fairly priced. Not only is she timely and responsive, but she is well-known and respected in the court system. She is articulate and detailed with every filing she has made for me, and she is very good at explaining complicated legal issues so that I can understand them. Her knowledge of divorce law is impeccable, and when I've gone to court with her, you can see the good rapport she has with fellow lawyers, court personnel and Judges. I should also mention that her success rate has got to be amongst the best because she has won every argument I've had in court and I've been the defendant! My mind is at ease with her as my attorney. I HIGHLY recommend Ms. Testa if you need a top-notch professional!

  • Excellent attorneys.
    Excellent attorneys. I highly recommend Mr. Pagnanelli. He is ethical, reasonable and extremely competent. I hired Mr. Pagnanelli to clean-up the mess created by my previous divorce attorney. After wasting years getting no where in negotiations with my prior attorney (and thousands of dollars), it took Mr. Pagnanelli just a few weeks to quickly and efficiently end my divorce on good terms. I was very happy with the result and with his effectiveness in negotiation.

  • She is the best and I’m so grateful for her.
    Rebecca will fight for your children and you. She will make you feel like you have your best friend standing next to you. She had me so relaxed and ready. I have spend so much money on lawyers that did not care and did not want to fight for my children then I meet her and she was ready. She answers all your emails at a timely manner and will meet with you days before court and talk on the phone the night before. She is the best and I’m so grateful for her and what she did for my children in court. Hire her and you will not be disappointed at all I promise you.

  • Maria is definitely the one to call.

    Maria is refreshingly fierce in court - she zealously, steadfastly and most importantly, SUCCESSFULLY protected my interests in a very nasty divorce. She came well-recommended by my general counsel when I was faced with a divorce - and that recommendation was well justified. Her communication is excellent, often I got a reply within minutes of emailing her. She was always willing to answer questions, offer constructive advice on dealing with any issue that arose. She made it her business to be well-informed about every aspect of my case.

    Maria excels at research and brings an encyclopedic knowledge of the law to the table. At every turn of my divorce and custody case, she developed solid and well-considered strategies for dealing with the other side and she and her team handled every situation with finesse, professionalism and acumen. She is a superb legal writer and a tiger in the courtroom - a consummate professional. Additionally, while Maria is always a professional jurist, she also gets to know and care about her clients and the peculiarities of each childrens' case. This is a quality that not many attorneys have and I really came to appreciate it in Maria.

    Lastly but far from least, Maria's fees are extraordinarily reasonable - especially when you consider the level of service and skill she provides. I have paid other attorneys far more for far fewer results. Her retainers are both affordable and flexible, which is very helpful while fighting a divorce.

    All in all, she is a five-star attorney you can hire at a three-star price and I recommend her and her team without any reservation whatsoever. If you need a lawyer to help you in a divorce or custody dispute, Maria is definitely the one to call.

    Rebecca Kolsky floats like a butterfly but stings like a bee in the court room. She is aggressive and passionate. Hands down one of the top lawyers out there. Professional and Tactical are just a few of her assets. I give her 10 stars for bringing justice to my children and I we are Forever grateful!!

  • I will forever be grateful for the hard work she put in.
    I was at my wits end, near penniless after a year long custody battle only to be dragged into court again for unfounded, untrue and baseless claims in thinly veiled attempts to diminish my custody time. I contemplated defending myself in court but realized quickly that I was in over my head and that while it may be expensive, hiring a true litigator was my only hope. I prayed feverishly about it and started searching for lawyers in the area. Thank God I found Maria Testa and Testa & Pagnanelli. I can't possibly say enough good things about Maria. When I say from the moment she took my case I went from a nervous, downtrodden, near beaten former shell of a man to a confident and self-assured client in the matter of a few minutes; you would almost have to see it to believe it. Her command of the courtroom is truly awe-inspiring. I think she actually intimidated opposing counsel to the degree where any objection or attempt at offense was nullified before she got out of the gate (literally, I saw them stutter and stare at their shoes at one point). I felt at ease and even when I felt like the odds were severely stacked against a divorced Dad seeking equal custody; she never let me feel or see that I had less than a fighting chance. I was confident going in and out of the courtroom BECAUSE my attorney was Maria Testa. As kind to her clients as she is knowledgeable about family law, she became like family. So much so that if I have a daughter I'd feel guilty if I didn't at least consider the name Maria. In all honesty, I have never seen a more capable and relentless lawyer take on the pursuit of true justice the way she did. And I will forever be grateful for the hard work she put in.

  • Efficient. Aggressive. I highly, highly recommend him!

    I turned to Enrico after spending my entire savings on a larger and completely ineffective firm in Philadelphia with no results. After a year of no progress on my divorce, I was exhausted and angry. Enrico heard me out and immediately jumped into action with an aggressive approach. He was empathetic toward me, but operated with zero sympathy for the other side. It felt so good to have someone finally and truly be my ally! Anyone going through a divorce can understand how defeating and discouraging the entire process can be. I was at a point where I didn't want to fight my husband anymore - I just wanted it to be over, and I was conceding far too much. But Enrico went in swinging and demanded more for me than I ever thought to ask for. And he got it. He accomplished more in four weeks than the other firm had in 12 months. He let me make the final decisions, but always encouraged me to push for what I wanted and deserved. I came out with a fair settlement that I was very happy with.

    I always communicated directly with Enrico, and he returned my calls and emails with incredible speed. No frivolous invoices billing me for making photocopies or other ridiculous crap. Efficient. Aggressive. I highly, highly recommend him!

  • I highly recommend working with Maria!
    I can not say enough good things about Maria and her staff. I highly recommend working with Maria! She doesn't treat you like a client she treats you like a friend or family. She is very direct and honest about what you should expect and the best way to handle it. At one point I had expectations of my divorce that weren't realistic. She very kindly explained to me the reality of how the courts would handle that situation and what would be a more realistic request to get the results I was looking for with the least amount of stress on myself. Maria has a genuine desire to do what is right for you and your needs. She is everything you look for in an attorney, kind, caring, genuine, direct, and honest with her clients. She will also fight for you to gain what is right and fair. I am more grateful to Maria and her team than I could ever express

  • She gets the job done period.
    Rebecca L. Kolsky is an amazing family law attorney. She gets the job done period, makes you feel like family and even though she has many other clients, always takes the time to respond promptly and help in anyway she can. In the courtroom, as I stated above she gets the job done, she’s fierce and doesn’t back down. I’d highly recommend her any day of the week. She can certainly turn that frown upside down.
