    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 suberb legal writer and a tiger in the courtroom - a consumate 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, Marias 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 less 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.

    I worked with Maria Testa of Testa and Pagnanelli from October 2015 to March 2017 for my custody proceedings in Philadelphia. From my initial consultation, I was convinced that I had made the right choice. Maria was knowledgeable, calm, and very sympathetic. Being a mother, herself, she really understood how to combine the human side of these proceedings with the legal side. In addition, Marias communication and organization is unparalleled. She would reply to every email I sent (and there were many!) within hours if not minutes. No question was too small. She truly understood my side of these proceedings, and, moreover, knew how to turn my hopes into actionable motions that gave results.
    I would recommend Maria Testa and Testa & Pagnanelli to anyone and want to thank Maria for her dedication to me and my daughter.

    Maria Testa has been my attorney since 2014 when she handled my divorce. I knew from our initial consultation that she doggedly determined, highly intelligent, irreproachably honest, and most importantly, she knew the law. These were the qualities I wanted in an attorney.
    Maria was wonderful,in the courtroom and out. She was empathetic, kind and always responsive to queries and concerns, days, nights or weekends.
    I have referred Maria to several friends, the highest form of praise, with equally stellar results.
    To this day, I consider her my friend.
    To anyone seeking legal representation in the area of family law, I highly recommend Maria Testa at Testa &Pagnanelli, LLC.

    Enrico Pagnanelli represented me in an ugly custody and relocation battle to save my triplet sons. He was amazing through the whole process. He is a no-nonsense type of lawyer who is very knowledgeable about family law. He is completely amazing!! He was completely prepared for every manipulation thrown at us. He ruled the courtroom, and he saved my babies. I brought them home that very day! Thank you so much Enrico!! I definitely recommend this amazing attorney! If you are fearful, heartbroken, or fighting a tough battle, this is the man for the job. He knows his stuff, and he truly cares. He is not a push over, and I am forever grateful for the joy he has brought my entire family! Please give him a call. You wont regret it!

    I turned to Enrico after a year and a half of being disappointed and misrepresented by different lawyers. I truly thought I needed to just give up. After talking to Enrico, he promised he would be by my side and truly represent me. And that is exactly what he did. He kept me in the loop weekly of any progress, answered all my calls and emails promptly. He was always willing to fight for me. And I can say he definitely did exactly what he said he would. He got my divorce final and a fair custody order in 6 months. I cant thank him enough. He was truly a godsend, always there for me, fighting for me in court, the first lawyer Ive met that had my best interests at heart. I would highly recommend Enrico. He is professional and willing to be your advocate!!thanks Enrico, youre the best!

    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 cant 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 Id feel guilty if I didnt 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.
