Mr. Maggio provides aggressive representation when necessary, while always balancing that with attempts to resolve legal disputes with minimal litigation and legal fees. He guides his clients through the legal process with the right combination of aggressiveness and professionalism to achieve successful results.
Gerry is a family man and understands the emotions that come with divorce. He will definitely tell you what reality is and won’t chase something that is unrealistic and costly.
A practical approach to emotional issues
Mr. Maggio’s philosophy in how divorce and family law cases should be handled is best said in his own words:
“There are attorneys who adopt a one-size-fits-all, scorched-earth approach to divorce cases that amounts to being overly-aggressive when many cases do not justify such approach, which only results in huge legal fees and an opposing party who now hates the other spouse or partner. I do not believe that such an approach is in most people’s best interests, although I do not hesitate to take an aggressive stance in a case when necessary. Instead, developing a customized, objective “legal road map” for a client and taking action based on that individualized plan is being a smart legal advocate for my clients.”
