Here is a review from one of the many satisfied clients of the Tormey Law Firm LLC:

“Exceptional Attorney”

5.0 stars
Posted by anonymous  
“I hired Tom Ercolano after a horrible run in with DCFS. I hired him and he truly is the reason I came out of this mess intact. He took care of all of my concerns, explained everything regarding my case that I did not understand and he put my anxiety and nerves at ease. He was calm, cordial, professional but at the same time made me feel like a friend. I could not be more pleased with the results of my now CLOSED case. For anyone looking for an attorney to handle their case I highly recommend hiring Mr. Ercolano.”

Former Deputy Attorney General

During his years as a Deputy Attorney General, Tom tried countless cases for the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (formerly DYFS), conducting Order to Show Cause custody hearings, case management conferences, pre-trial conferences, child abuse and neglect fact-findings and termination of parental rights trials. Tom learned what it takes to manage an extensive caseload and develop effective case strategy. He also worked with expert witnesses including pediatricians, psychologists and psychiatrists. In addition to developing his trial advocacy skills, Tom also wrote numerous appellate briefs for DCP&P and presented oral arguments before the Appellate Division.
