“The absolute best attorney in NJ!”

5.0 stars

Posted by Kris

“It was the absolute best positive experience working with the Tormey Law Group. The team provided me superior quality service, and he got me the result I wanted. He is extremely knowledgeable and fantastic in court. He made me feel completely relaxed and insured that my needs were met. Everyone at the Tormey Law Group made me feel as if I was their #1 priority and that everyone was invested in me and my case. They were easily accessible, got back to me quicker than I could ever anticipate, were aggressive in court and most importantly, got the job done. Travis, his associates, and his staff are the quality of a law group that anyone would want when hiring a family law attorney, and I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is in need of an attorney!”
