Patricia Fernandez is a creative, thorough and professional divorce attorney. She is extremely skilled in handling the most complex cases. Pat helped me navigate through the difficult process of divorce. I am highly satisfied with the outcome and am grateful for her expertise. I give my highest recommendation to Patricia Fernandez and her team of legal and administrative professionals.
Divorce is a painful, frustrating and exhausting experience, made even more so when children are involved. Throughout the year that it
took to reach a final judgment of divorce, Pat Fernandez and her team were professional, aggressive and worked extremely hard to protect my interests and
those of my son. I am very pleased with the result and would strongly recommend them in the most complex and acrimonious cases. I rest easy knowing that
Pat and her team are there and ready if I need them again before my son reaches adulthood.
I have received the BEST legal council available at Pat Fernandez and
Associates. I absolutely loved working with Attorney Nicole Socci, she did not miss a beat and covered every detail. Her level of professionalism,
discipline and understanding kept me focused at all times. The support staff of Paralegals; Marie was so warm and friendly upon entering the
office. They took good care of all my financial and business issues with a smile and laughter. It was through a wonderful TEAM that got me through a
very difficult divorce; My life has just begun…… a new! Many Thanks.

I came to Patricia after consultations with several other attorneys who just couldn’t seem to wrap their brain around my case. Pat
helped me secure a settlement with all the stipulations I wanted, including full custody of my children, without the expense of taking our case before
the judge. I have come back to her each time an issue has come up with my ex-husband, and I have always felt glad to have her on my side. I wouldn’t
hesitate to recommend Patricia S. Fernandez & Associates to anyone undergoing a divorce, child support, or custody matter. She is excellent.
My partner and I, who were together 8 years, bought a house, but it was in her name. I paid for a lot of the expenses, including the
down payment, and made repairs to the house throughout our relationship. When we broke up, I told her I wanted my share of the house. She said because
it was in her name, I wasn’t going to get anything! Because of Pat’s help, we were able to mediate an agreement which allowed her to keep the house, but
pay me for my own investment in the property. One of the best things is that we kept it out of court and used a mediator. It kept down the expenses, as
well as the fighting.
Miguel has the perfect traits for a great lawyer in family court. He fought for me when needed and was able to shake hands with the other attorney
and make a deal when appropriate. Thrilled with his work and I highly recommend him.

I live in North Andover and needed a trusted attorney in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Patricia Fernandez represented me on two difficult
occasions and we won on both counts. Patricia and her staff showed high character and integrity. I would recommend her highly.
Nicole Socci is a fierce, but reasoned advocate for her clients and has an impressive knowledge of the nuances of family law in Massachusetts,
as well as a practical and institutional knowledge of the probate and family courts in Massachusetts. She is an excellent lawyer.

Attorney Nieves helped me out with my divorce. During this tough time, I felt that he had my best interest in mind. He explained everything
clearly to me upfront and throughout the process. He was available when I needed to reach him and he always took the time to take my call when needed. Mr. Nieves
was very professional, very knowledgeable and very precise and did things in a timely manner. Not sure what to expect when I started this process, I am glad that
I had him representing me and helping me through this. I will use him again in the future without a doubt. I was very impressed with his service and professionalism
and feel that he truly works for his clients in a genuine manner.

My experience with Patricia S. Fernandez & her staff was very positive, kind and constructive, considering the potential negativity of a
divorce/custody proceeding. Patricia helped me seek solutions that protect the custody and well-being of my infant child, and her counsel afforded me the
gift of having my life return to normal. Pat guided me in finding common ground wherever appropriate, but was always on my side and prepared to aggressively
litigate when necessary. She acted as an advocate, guide and protector, during one of the most difficult times of my life. If you need a hero, if you really
need someone that will stand by you and do the absolute right thing, then, you need Pat Fernandez.
I was represented by Nicole in the context of a separation from my fiance. She was incredibly professional, informed and her expertise about
the process helped put me an ease and made a difficult situation easier. She responded promptly and patiently answered all of my questions. I highly
recommended Nicole and the firm for family law.
When asked “what is the hardest part of the marriage” some people would say the beginning is the hardest. This is when everything is still new and you’re
getting the kinks out of your living situation and your relationship...
