Couldn’t have chosen a better attorney to handle my crazy divorce and my ex, Sylvia is on the ball! – Majestic E.
My divorce became final in 2019. I didn’t write a review at the time because I just didn’t want to deal with another divorce-related thing! But that also allowed me to live with my marital settlement agreement (MSA) for a while before giving my feedback. And honestly, I can’t recommend Sylvia Costantino, Esq. (and her practice) enough. Going through a divorce sucks…no matter the circumstances. But throughout the process, I felt like Sylvia achieved the perfect balance–she was always fighting for me (i.e., “getting fired up” on my behalf!) yet she also remained professional, didn’t get caught up in the emotion and was able to focus on what was in my best interest.
I’ve now lived with my MSA for almost two years and there is no doubt in my mind that I got the best settlement that I could have. Period. She even added in language that didn’t seem like a big deal to me at the time but that’s proven to be extremely important as I’m living with the MSA.
No one sets out to get divorced….and I had no idea what the divorce process entailed. Nor did I understand the long-term impact of some of these issues. But Sylvia does and she fought for me and protected me in my MSA…and I am beyond grateful to her. 10/10 recommend. – Debbie M.
I was referred to Sylvia by a close friend who had nothing but the best to say about her. At the same time, another friend highly recommended her . . .and then another. All within a week.
When going through these life changes you need someone you can trust, is an expert in their field, and who cares. Sylvia has been all of these. I will refer to her any friend who is need of her guidance and expertise. – Martin Z.
I interviewed several attorneys before selecting Sylvia based on her knowledge and responses to my questions. She focused on the relevant issues and didn’t ask for information that didn’t advance the case.
I hired Sylvia to defend me against my ex’s divorce filing. It was a tenuous and prolonged battle which was very stressful but working with her and her team helped to keep me informed and calm. She identified areas of asset ownership where we had strength to negotiate and areas where we may need to concede.She kept me abreast of her communications with our adversary and worked with me in preparing responses to the numerous challenges presented by the opposing team.
With her extensive experience she knew the system, opposing counsel and mediator which allowed us to move forward in a favorable position.
She’s a good attorney but an extraordinary individual and I’m glad that I chose her over the other 2 attorneys I interviewed first. – Mike.
I have recently retained Sylvia’s services for my divorce. Sylvia helped me make the hardest decision of my life into one of the easiest decisions of my life. I have been married for over 25 years so this decision did not come easy to me. (Actually, long time overdue). I told Syliva what was happening in my marriage and she reassured me that I was doing the thing as it’s not a healthy environment for both my daughter and myself.
One of the hardest parts thus far was picking up the phone and allowing myself to be as vulnerable as I was to Sylvia. She’s compassionate, kind and considerate. She allowed me to “vent “ while I’m sure she had more pressing issues to deal with then me as a New Client.
No one gets married to get divorced but if you find yourself needing a reputable, understanding and fact finding attorney, I strongly recommend Sylvia and her team of experts. – Barbara F.
Sylvia is a powerhouse; offering her abilities to those who find themselves in a heartbreaking and sensitive situation. We will be forever grateful for her service and good heart. – Linda P.

After interviewing several attorneys, a friend recommended Sylvia. I know I made the right choice when I retained Sylvia. Sylvia and her staff are very professional, very experienced and diligent in their work. Divorce is both a legal and emotional process…Sylvia was truly concerned with the well being of me & my son in every possible aspect of my divorce! – Rosemary S.
Sylvia Costantino’s professionalism and genuine compassion guided me through the most difficult time in my life. Without her invaluable expertise and assistance, I would never have “survived” the unfamiliar court processes. My heartfelt thanks to Sylvia and her wonderful staff for all they have done to help me. – Ann B.
I recently retained Sylvia to handle a high conflict complex family matter where the other parent lived out of state. Sylvia was 100% in control and on top of the matter and was always available and immediately responsive. If you’re in need of a family law attorney that will take the time to understand your specific situation and then navigate you through the process to achieve your objectives, Sylvia is the one for you. I’ve already referred a friend to her. – David K.
The process of divorce can be very complex and stressful. Sylvia has helped me navigate both the legal and emotional side of issues that arise in custody and support. She has guided me but also allowed me to have a voice in the process. Her office staff is professional, helpful and responsive. Highly recommend. – Heather O.
Razor sharp ~ on point and caring attorney all in one ! Highly highly highly recommend !! – Kayla S.
Sylvia was able to navigate through my high conflict divorce with professionalism, always keeping the interests of myself and my children a top priority. She was ALWAYS meticulously prepared in court, her motions were clearly researched and direct and when she was working on my case, she made me feel as if it was her top priority. No one wants to be in the situation where they need a divorce lawyer, and the process takes an extreme emotional toll, however, I would not have wanted anyone else in my corner except Sylvia Costantino. – Alisa F.
I used another attorney for my divorce and a few years later my ex-husband decided he wanted to modify/change our agreement. Sylvia was highly recommended to me and I have been very grateful that she became my attorney. I have had a very long drawn out case with what seems like endless trips to court, including to the appellate division. Sylvia has worked tirelessly and stayed upbeat throughout encouraging me through this very difficult time. Sylvia promptly responds to my calls or e-mails. Her staff is always very supportive and professional.
Sylvia discusses with you what your best options are with knowledge, compassion, caring, and dedication. I now cannot imagine getting through this without her, I have been fortunate to have her represent me. If you need a family lawyer she will work tirelessly getting you through the process and will be at your side every step of the way.
Thank you Sylvia! – Mary K.
Sylvia Costantino was extremely helpful and knowledgeable when responding to my legal needs. Sylvia returned my initial phone call for assistance promptly and provided me practical answers to my legal questions. Sylvia is honest, easy to speak with, and provided me with thorough advice.
As a divorced single father, I was overwhelmed with the entire divorce process. Sylvia was able to alleviate my concerns and help me comprehend my legal options.
I highly recommend Sylvia for legal service. I felt much more informed and relaxed after speaking with her and I am thankful for her guidance. – Robert C.
Sylvia and her staff (Jessica, Colleen, and Kim) were professional and extremely helpful in a time when I had a lot of questions, they were very patient and understanding. I would highly recommend Sylvia and her staff. – Howard B.
I had retained Sylvia Constantine back in 2010 for my divorce. From the moment I stepped into her office both herself and her staff made me feel very welcomed. I felt a strong sense of professionalism along with compassion. Divorce by no means is ever easy, but she helped keep the process very smooth, but most importantly Sylvia helped me keep a clear head not only for myself but for my daughter as well. I had recently retained Sylvia again for some unfinished business regarding the divorce and one again her professionalism shines through. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a divorce lawyer. – Gigi C.
Sylvia truly cared about me during the most difficult time in my life. She is also a force to be reckoned with and I highly recommend her to anyone going through a divorce. – Elizabeth A.
Going through the process of getting a divorce has been one of the most difficult and emotional processes I could ever imagine going through. From day one I struggled with how my life would be affected and, more importantly, how it would affect my daughter. I can honestly say that Sylvia has helped make that process as smooth and painless and it could possibly be. She is completely understanding and sympathetic to my cause while selflessly fighting to help me in my quest for quality time with my daughter. Her experience and passion to achieve the goals we set forth together provide a comfort level that can not be put into words in a time when you need it most. She genuinely cares about her clients which I’ve seen first hand in her tireless efforts to make this as seamless as possible for me. She has been such a joy to work within a time when I needed it most and I can’t even begin to imagine where I would be without her.
Thank you Sylvia….from the bottom of my heart. – Brandon C.
Sylvia Costantino and her staff were astounding from my 2016 initial consultation through the recent final hearing!
Sylvia and I began the process with her fully educating me on NJ divorce options. It was determined divorce by Bed and Board was my best option. Divorce was such a painful and difficult experience, I was so grateful to have Sylvia alongside of me. Sylvia is so compassionate, understanding and easy to talk with about all my concerns. She is extremely dedicated and put 100% effort to my case. Several times she contacted me outside the scoop of normal business hours; late evenings and weekends. Sylvia showed care in every aspect of my case and constantly strived to move matters along and accomplish our set goals.
The administrative staff was continuously in touch, keeping me informed of deadlines, necessary documents, etc. My calls and email inquiries were promptly responded to and answered effectively.
Jessica, legal support staff, also worked on my case. She represented me at one of the court hearings and I was fully satisfied and impressed with her knowledge and ease of court handling.
Sylvia also represented another family member and a close friend. Both cases were more complicated involving children and Sylvia obtained favorable outcomes. Both have endlessly thank me for recommending Sylvia.
Having several attorneys in my circle of family and friends, I can easily attest to the professionalism and expertise of Sylvia and her law firm.
Sylvia Costantino is First Class and the only family law attorney I could ever recommend!
Thank you Sylvia! – Dianne Z.
I just wanted to write and say how happy I was to have Sylvia as my lawyer. Going through my divorce and other issues, she was always there, responded quickly, her staff was great and did whatever she could to get me the information and help I needed. She was professional and right to the point. She also had great concern and empathy for my situation. It was a long process and she made it easier. Going through a divorce especially with children involved can be emotional and draining, she helped each step of the way. She put 100% effort and hard work into my long drawn out 2-year case. She stuck with it till the end and still continues to follow up and help guide me. She did an amazing job and looked out for the best interest for me and also for my daughter. I want to thank her over and over for all she has done. I would highly recommend Ms. Constantino to anyone I knew looking for a lawyer dealing with any family situation! – Laura C.
We put our hearts and trust in capable hands when we hired Sylvia. She went beyond our expectations. Sylvia listens quietly, and you discover that you can trust her like you would a best friend or a family member. Sylvia had all the ammunition needed to win our case, and even the judge commented how impressed he was with her that she came before him so well prepared. Sylvia goes a step further and looks out for you personally. Even at this later date, we find ourselves still benefiting from her good advice. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had Sylvia represent us.

Sylvia Costantino has been my attorney for the past 4 years. She represented me for my divorce and continues to do so with on-going custody issues. My divorce was the most difficult, scary time in my life. I was filled with fear and questions. Sylvia kept me well informed of the process, what to expect and what not to expect, while never providing false hope. She takes the time to talk about the circumstances and truly understands the situation of the families impacted. She has an honesty about her that goes a long way. I know she has my best interest in mind, as well as the best interest of my children, which is most important. I have great respect for Sylvia and would highly recommend her for any family matter. – Alicia M.
Making the decision to get divorced wasn’t easy for me; choosing an attorney was.
I hired Sylvia S. Costantino, Esq., LLC. It was evident that Ms. Constantino truly cared about seeing me through this difficult time as quickly and easily as possible. To help with my procrastination, she prudently explained the dangers of remaining married to someone with whom you are not living with which allowed me to move forward. She showed the utmost professionalism and compassion throughout the process and gave my case the importance I felt it deserved. She was absolutely instrumental in addressing all of my concerns with extreme clarity and definition while her actions were concise, honest, and intelligent. She walked me through each step with extreme attention to detail and always took the time my case needed. Having her represent me was a tremendous asset and I would highly recommend her to anyone requiring a great attorney. – Darya C.
As everyone knows, a divorce can turn your family life up side down. I am so grateful that I found Sylvia. She was recommended to me by a friend and I can not thank her enough. Sylvia took on my case knowing that it was not going to be easy and that I was dealing with an extremely difficult man, who refuses to compromise. Sylvia has fought for my kids and I and has consistently proven to me that she is the right attorney for my case, or any divorce case for that matter. I have reached my wits end numerous times, feeling as if I hit a dead end with the court system, But she reminds me that I can not throw in the towel and quit. She shows me that she is persistent and gets results. I am extremely glad that she is on my side. She is what I call, “A shark in a guppie tank”. She not only represents me, she makes me feel like a family member. She is genuinely concerned for my well being and the welfare of my 3 children. I know that I hired the best attorney for the job. – Stephanie N.

Sylvia has been my Counsel since 2009, she has always demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and compassion both inside and outside of the courtroom. She is dedicated and attentive to her client’s needs and fully prepared, even for the unexpected.
I highly recommend Sylvia Costantino. – JillAnn P.
I recently went through a nasty divorce and went through two other divorce lawyers before finding Sylvia Costantino. She was able to get my case done and cut to the chase. Without her, I would probably still be going at it with my ex and spending my life savings doing it. In my book, having the right divorce attorney makes all the difference. Sylvia always called me back and answered my questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a family law attorney. – Jonathan B.
Sylvia has been great. Just by definition of divorce issues I can’t rate it 5 star as loved it. Divorce issues are terrible to deal with but Sylvia Costantino has been responsive and efficient. I would recommend her and have done so. – Wendy A.
Divorce is a very stressful and frustrating thing to go through, you need an attorney who’s competent and knowledgeable and who’d give you a good advice from the legal point of view and calm you down at the same time. Sylvia is that attorney who knows her subject from A to Z and who’s also caring and attentive to your needs as well. – Valerie S.
Sylvia Costantino has been a pleasure to work with. I retained Sylvia in February for my divorce and she is smart, sharp and is truly there for you every step of the way. My divorce has gone smooth and quick. She always returns calls and emails promptly and is immediatly on the case if there are any issues. Her staff too has been great to work with as well. I would definitely recommend.
– Courtney R.
At the beginning of 2013, As a single dad, I retained Sylvia Costantino to represent me for my son’s child custody case. Since I’m currently living out of state and with the distance of hundreds of miles. I initially thought it would be a nightmare retaining an attorney so far away. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how Sylvia Costantino worked with me over the phone and by email. Sylvia is extremely professional and knowledgeable concerning the issue of father’s rights. Sylvia’s knowledge and presence in the courtroom are of the utmost highest. I was more than a client she genuinely cared about the outcome of my case. She helped me get a fair and reasonable decision for my case. If the time comes when you need attorney representation and want an attorney that doesn’t back down and who actually cares about your case I would strongly recommend Sylvia Costantino. – Eric W.
