Paul and Adam earned my trust and respect.

As a business owner/executive with a complex financial estate, I relied on Paul Panico and his firm to protect the interests of my business and its 30 employees. Their understanding of complicated financial data and legal issues was invaluable. They selected the right outside experts and formed the right team. I appreciated their realistic approach, skill, expertise and sound advice. In my career, I work with many lawyers in other practice areas. Paul and Adam earned my trust and respect.

Now I refer anyone I know that needs a family lawyer to him.

I can’t thank my friends who referred me to Paul enough. It’s bad enough when your marriage ends, but then going through a divorce, especially with an overly difficult lawyer on the other side, can be even worse. We’ve all heard the horror stories. Luckily I had Paul to guide me through it. My family and I benefitted from having the right lawyer. Now I refer anyone I know that needs a family lawyer to him.

I feel that my issues and concerns have been taken to heart.

I am a current divorce client of Attorney Panico. I feel that my issues and concerns have been taken to heart. After years of a bad marriage, it was nice to be listened to and treated with respect. Paul and his staff work my case as if it is their own situation. Although we’re not millionaires, there have been significant hurdles throughout the case. I feel as if they are fighting on my behalf and using the tools and resources available to them to advance my interests.

I found that Paul and his team were looking out for my best interest.

I sought legal representation from Paul for my divorce. My spouse, a prominent surgeon, was very aggressive and changed counsel many, many times. During this experience, I had to learn patience for a system that does not always run very quickly. I found that Paul and his team were looking out for my best interest and protecting me throughout and after the case concluded. I am currently in a post-decree matter and back with Attorney Panico. While I hope that I do not have to keep coming back as the years progress, I know that Paul, Adam and Beth are there for me to uphold the divorce agreement.

I would highly recommend Attorney Adam Eliot.

Removing myself and my son from a toxic marriage was the hardest choice I ever had to make, and I was frightened. Adam worked with me relentlessly and patiently. Adam is intelligent, thorough, kind and understanding. He was extremely busy, but always made time for me and kept me informed. He always had the best interest of my child in mind. What I valued most about him was that I could call him whenever I got really upset during the divorce roller coaster ride, and Adam was always the calm in my storm. He had a knack for reducing complicated issues down to the essential explanations and offering the concise advice I needed to help me get through the day. I would highly recommend Attorney Adam Eliot.

- Nicole D. - Westerville, OH


I felt fortunate and grateful to have Adam on my side.

Adam was a force wrapped in kindness. He guarded my rights and when my ex refused to be reasonable, his trial skills enabled me to get a favorable settlement. Seeing his work and my ex’s lawyer on display side by side in the courtroom, I felt fortunate and grateful to have Adam on my side.

Paul and hia staff are truely the best in Ohio. True class acts who have shown time and time again how much and how far they will go for their clients. I highly recommend Paul Panico. By far a class act bar none.

- Rick Trussell


Paul Panico cares about his clients.

Paul Panico cares about his clients. He's a good combination of kindness and toughness. He is currently handling a divorce filing for me, and the one attribute of his that I think permeates all of our interaction is his sense of fairness.

- JO-ANN DAVIS


He seemed to be a true client advocate

I consulted Paul Panico regarding my divorce. He was professional, genuine, and compassionate. He proffered practical advice and provided options how to navigate this unpopular process. He seemed to be a true client advocate

- Roman Kovac


I'm very happy with the outcome.

The first time I consulted with Paul Panico I hired him right away for my case. My divorce was very difficult but Paul made everything very easy and settled any troubles we had in a timely manner. He put many hours into my case and treated every matter that would come up like his own. In the end I got to keep my house and all of my possessions and I get to see my child anytime I want. Paul fought for what I wanted through the divorce and I would recommend him to anyone with any legal matters and I have recommended him to many people. He is a very professional man, family orientated, and will fight to no extent for his clients. I'm very happy with the outcome of my divorce case and will always strongly suggest him to anyone. I spoke with many other fathers and I believe that Paul Panico is one of the best attorneys anyone could ask for with any matter.

- Jon Chandler


Paul is a wonderful attorney he truly cares about his clients.

Paul is a wonderful attorney he truly cares about his clients and their well-being he is very professional and knows the law what I loved about my experience with Paul and his team is that they really try to help people come to an agreement rather than having to drag things through court also the judge will come right to his office and you can sign off on papers so that you don't have to be humiliated in court rooms I definitely recommend Paul

- Susan Rawlings


I am sure that I will be using his services in the future.

I used Pauls services for a case that came about after my divorce and have used him several times since 2013 pertaining to my ex husband. He has been great to work with always upfront about what he thought and helpful with any questions that I had. I am sure that I will be using his services in the future.

- Jessica Stoke


Years of experience and goes above and beyond expectations.

Mr. Panico truly shows his years of experience and goes above and beyond expectations while getting you the best results possible. He is very professional and caring when it comes to his clientele. He is very knowledgeable and will help you reach your goals in your custody disputes.

- Christopher Cox


He is attentive, compassionate, forthright and professional.

Paul represented me in a child custody case. He is attentive, compassionate, forthright and professional. The only promise Paul made to me was that he would represent me to the best of his abilities. He delivered on his promise and met my expectations. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a 1st Class Family Law Attorney.

- Andrew Fox


Paul was being magnanimous.

When my wife of the time abruptly left me it truly tested my sense of trust. At 1st I thought our mediation was successful, having the court knock on my door told me that honeymoon was over. I then had to find an attorney myself. I interviewed many, and all were very professional, however Paul struck me as actually humanly concerned with my case. He took a long time for the 1st visit (at least an hour if not more) to talk me through the process and as I remember with no obligation to continue on or pay for this time. I found him wise and confident but without the hard edge I was expecting. He made the point that this will be over at some point and IF we can find a fair solution, all will win, most importantly our shared daughter. I really did not think he was going to be my attack dog to destroy my X nor was he interested in this role. Despite the temptation for the hurt I felt to want someone that would “go after my X” I did sense the wisdom of his views. Now my wife hired exactly the opposite, yep she had the attack dog. I remember our 1st meeting among us all, how Paul brought the opposing consul to meet me, and how he gave me the limp fish handshake and would not look m in the eyes. Paul was being magnanimous. Opposing consul was being as you would expect. He took the opposing consuls attacks with humor, dismissed them quietly and expertly with past cases he knew of and kept me (a very Irish guy) from losing my cool as I was being so insulted by the oppositions condescending and rude behavior. Paul earned my trust over time, I never felt concerned for what the end result would be. In our final meeting we had reach what appeared to be an unsolvable impasse and as everyone else seemed ready to dig in and fight to the death, it was Paul’s cool nature that kept alive the communication until there was a solution that arose from the open mindedness he gifted us all, he TRULY saved this from getting ugly and ½ hour later our case was settled. A week later I felt good, I had no “blood on my hands” nor did I lose anything that was not affordable in the realm of mutual and reasonable compromise and most of all I ended up with shared parenting which of all things was my most important goal. Now 2 weeks on I feel even better about the end result. If I can think of a character that best describes Paul is Columbo, that old detective on TV that because of his gentle nature many would underestimate. He did not help me win my case, he help my X and I win our daughter’s future In the best win win for all and by doing so made me the better man!

I’m over all pleased with Paul’s services.

Paul recently handled my case on helping me get custody of my two kids. Paul was a lot of help always available to talk or help even in emergency situations. Always in the best interest of my kids even. I literally had custody of my kids within the month of Paul’s help. I would like to think my case ended quicker then what I’ve heard of many other people as went through. Mine was all over in under a year!! I’m over all pleased with Paul’s services. I have and will continue to refer Paul to my friends or family. Paul’s 20 some years experience definitely pays off when in much need situations!!

- Chris Reynolds


I will gladly recommend Paul and Adam.

Paul and Adam were my saviors during the time of my custody issues. They were very caring and honest throughout my entire case. I was extremely fearful while going through the court process, but they always assured me that things would work in my favor! There was never a moment I questioned the direction my case was going. If any family or friends ever need a child custody attorney, I will gladly recommend Paul and Adam.

- Stevie Valentine


I am very impressed.

I have only had an initial consultation with Paul but so far I am very impressed. He is professional, knowledgeable, and genuinely cares about the outcome of my case.

High Caliber Family Lawyer

High Caliber Family Law Representation from a Professional, Distinguished, Courteous and Dedicated Attorney who puts Clients First! I was so skeptical at first since I've never retained an attorney before. I've worked for attorneys, so I know how some of them can be. Since Paul was so much more responsive than other attorneys, I was willing to pay his higher-than-average hourly rate-- especially after he made it clear that he wasn't going to retire off me and if it was justifiable, he'd balance the scales. Also, 29 years of experience is invaluable when you're trying to negotiate with unreasonable opposing counsel. I felt like I knew Paul my whole life after sitting down with him for our initial consult 10 months ago. He listened to every excruciating detail I had to give him and took great notes. It was obvious he wanted to make sure I was fully protected going into the ordeal. I had NO idea the opposing counsel we were going up against would sink so low not only in professionalism, but in just supporting a fair & positive outcome for the best interest of our child. Paul and his long-time Paralegal kept me abreast of every trick, delay and dramatic inject opposing counsel added to the mix. With magistrates failing to show and numerous month-to-month hearing "pushbacks" (opposing counsel would purposely wait until the day of court or close of business the day prior to present their offers), it became a game of attrition for opposing counsel. She was hoping I would just "settle" and drop the contempt against my ex-wife who kept my daughter for nearly three months without even notifying the court or modifying our agreement. Long story short, opposing counsel was able to drag this relatively simple case out for ten months at the expense of our child, the valuable time of the courts, the court guardian ad-litem and her own name. Paul argued for the best interest of our child and for a timely, fair outcome for both parents despite all of the petty drama stemming from opposing counsel. Approximately 8 months of hearings (or lack thereof), I had spent thousands on two attorneys (including court guardian ad-litem) and couldn't take much more. That's when Paul worked with me to make sure we got through this ordeal together. He was a man of his word and provided the legal protection, arguments and filings needed to ensure that I got 50/50 custody of our daughter and significantly more time with her. I wish I would have retained him back in 2015! If you need an attorney who WILL fight for your rights as a loving parent when you're going into a scary legal situation and you want a legal professional who WILL respond to you promptly, Paul Panico is your best bet in Central Ohio. Take it from me, a guy so skeptical to ever retain legal help in the first place. It's worth the money to establish your self as a parent for many years to come!!!

- David Bartholomew

It'll be the best decision you make!

I cannot describe in words how much Paul Panico and his team has done for me. To be honest, I chose Paul to fight my custody case because I couldn't waste anymore time interviewing lawyers. I later discovered that this spur of the moment decision was the best decision in my life. Beth at the front desk has always been a warm ray of sunshine whenever I called. This sweetheart always made me feel that everything would be ok and every issue was urgent. Beth never blew off my feelings or what I had to tell her. I was nervous when Adam would come to represent me because I felt that Adam didn't know my case like Paul. Let me tell you, I was 100% WRONG! Adam is very intelligent and an effective litigator. He is not very social like Paul but he is very strong in court. He represented me very well when Paul couldn't make it. Adam is silent but deadly! Everyone collaborated together on my case so that everyone was up to date. This was something I didn't know or expect but came to a surprise when I discovered how Paul kept everyone informed. Paul always knew how to keep me calm and stay positive. Paul is the only lawyer I can say that actually cares about people. He would call to checkup on me to make sure I was doing ok and if I needed anything. What lawyer does this!? Paul and his team doesn't look for a payday, they have loving and caring hearts. I didn't feel like I only had a legal team on my side. For almost three years, I felt like I had a family by my side. Many times I would call crying because of what my ex would do, Paul and his team were there to listen and help ease my worries. When my case ended, I was given the best advice rather than continue fighting and them getting more money. They told me the deal on the table was the best option even though it meant their job was finished. They weren't looking for more money, I feel Paul and Adam told me what was in my best interest. I took their advice against my own feelings because I trusted them with all my heart. I won my case because of them. I am a guy that won my case in a state that favors the mother because I had the best darn legal team on my side. Thank you very much to Paul, Adam, and Beth for always being there for me! If I didn't have to move 2 hours from them, I would keep them on my side fighting my ex from her vicious attacks because there is no one I would ever trust more! If you want the best legal representation, choose Paul and his team. It'll be the best decision you make!

Forget the Rest, Go with the Best!

These People are Real Attorney's. Forget the Rest, Go with the Best! Simply Amazing.

Panico law gets results.

I really appreciated Paul’s approach of being a nonsense attorney. He is straight forward with the entire process. In my initial meeting with Paul he laid out my case and explained what he felt the results of of case would be and he was dead on. Throughout the entire process Beth (Paul’s paralegal) was refreshing to work with. She was always willing to answer any questions I had. Panico law gets results. Thanks again Paul and Beth for all your support during this difficult time in my life.

- Brian Davenport


Excellent and professional lawyers.

- Pamela Howell


Paul R. Panico and his team are the best in town.

Paul R. Panico and his team are the best in town or around Columbus Ohio. Paul is professional, responsive and has a commanding stand in court, if needed in court, he is there for you. What I like about Paul is his personality and professional experience which made our case easy to solve in our favor. Without Paul I am 100% sure that I would loose the case. He has been very helpful getting my case going to the right direction. Paul will responds to any questions and concerns quickly and honestly to the best of his knowledge. If you need someone who fights for the best of yours, I would say go with Paul R. Panico and his professional team.

- Mohamed Farah


Professionalism through the roof!

Paul wasn't even hired by me for my case and he went above and beyond what any lawyer in the area would do. Didnt ask me for fees and he was straight forward and direct in finding what best fit my case and me. Professionalism through the roof and cared for my sotuation as if i didnt just meet him 10 minutes prior via phone. When the time comes that i need to hire an attorney for my case he will be the first and last call i make.

- Hayden Smith


It was a pleasure working with Panico Law!

He really cares about his clients.

This was by far the best experience I have ever had with a lawyer in my life. He actually proved me wrong. I thought he would be a typical lawyer (take your money and run) Nooooooo that was not the case! Not at ALL WITH HIM!!I He really cares about his clients. I can honestly say that from the bottom of my heart. And most of all...He will get you results. I truly recommend his service to anybody who is looking for an attorney. from me definitely‼

I would recommend Paul Panico.

Paul took the time to speak with me directly in person and via zoom so he could fully understand my circumstances, my goals, and my timeline. He also showed me several other possibilities and paths that we could take to improve my position and outcome. I would recommend Paul Panico I would come back again for future needs as well.

- Greg P.


I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Paul was great to work with! He is so calm and easy going and always knew how to calm me down and get me to laugh when it was getting too stressful for me. When Paul was busy and I couldn't get a response, I could always go to Beth (his paralegal) and get an answer. They are a great team. I would use them again in a heartbeat and would recommend them to others.

- Jackie Miller


I was very happy to meet Paul.

I was very happy to meet Paul. He was incredibly helpful and informative.He understood my frustrations and handled it with such class and professionalism. I would recommend him to anyone. I am so grateful to him and his team for doing their jobs with such heart.

- Samuel Amos


He always put my interest first before his wallet.

Mr Panico made me feel at ease the moment we met. I don't think I would have wanted anyone else to do my divorce. Between himself and Ms Beth. I always knew what was going on with my case in a timely fashion. He was also very reasonable with his prices. He always put my interest first before his wallet. I would always recommend him to anyone going through a divorce.

- Queen 9773


Paul is up front, honest and looks out for the best.

Paul Panico has represented me for all of my shared parenting plan and child support negotiations. Paul is up front, honest and looks out for the best interest of both you and your children. I would definitely recommend him (& have to friends and family) to anyone looking for a family law lawyer they can trust.

- Justin Gray


I’m happy that I can move on with my life in peace.

My divorce has been finalized and I feel so relieved! Panico Law Group really helped me navigate through the confusing paperwork, and were always there to answer questions (which were numerous!) that I had. Things I liked about Paul and his group: free initial consultation, professional, kept me up-to-date, easy to deal with, good listeners, understanding, good price. I can’t come up with any negatives. I thought my divorce would be cut-and-dry, but my ex-partner and COVID complicated things. Paul helped me wade through everything, and I always felt confident knowing that he was representing me. I’m happy that I can move on with my life in peace. I’d highly recommend Paul’s services if you need a divorce.

- Ryan Kell


Mr. Panico is very professional and knowledgeable.

Mr. Panico is very professional and knowledgeable. He was able to guide me through the process in a timely manner and answered all my questions. I would recommend him to anyone looking for legal assistance.

- Jeralyne Padilla


He is very knowledgeable and professional.

I found Paul Panico online when searching for a lawyer to help me with my child custody situation and noticed all the positive reviews from other clients of his. I’ve never had to deal with this before and didn’t know what to expect, however Paul helped ease my mind from the very beginning. Anytime I had a question or a worry, I could reach out directly to Paul and he always responded in a timely manner. He is very knowledgeable and professional. We ended up winning my case and I couldn’t thank Paul enough! I would highly recommend him to anyone needing assistance with custody of a child.

- Kayla Stevens


10/10 recommend!!!

I called just to ask a few questions about a custody issue and Paul was more than helpful. Simply seeking legal advice has been hard for me as some attorneys want money before they do anything for you at all. Paul was more than happy to help answer all of my questions. That being said I will be contacting him in the future if need be! 10/10 recommend!!!

- Hailey Carroll


You get what you pay for!

When it became necessary for me to lawyer-up, Panico Law Group has the reputation and experience I was looking for! My ex had already made a conflict of interest stigma with every divorce attorney in my area, so was forced to look outside my small town, and I feel certain I could not have made a better choice retaining Adam Elliot. My case was long, and complex, drawn out more by the inefficiency of my local court system. Sound advise and knowledgeable guidance became the norm, throughout my 4 year long journey to prevalence. I have been impressed with the common sense and wisdom Adam carries and imparted to me. He represented me as a woman, as a mother, and as the defendant the case. He is a highly intelligent man, who exudes humble confidence, which always kept our dynamic extremely professional, while still treating me an equal, with high regard for my journey and my desired outcome. You get what you pay for, so I didn’t fool around with anyone but the best! You shouldn’t either.

- Erin Kyae


Thanks Paul for your representation.

Paul was extremely responsive and professional in my divorce case. As an executive, it was extremely important that I picked the attorney that could best represent me and my situation. He managed to keep the divorce out of the courts and moved the process along in a timely manner. Highly recommend him !! Thanks Paul for your representation.

- Joyce Bohl


I always felt I was in good hands.

Navigating my divorce was a challenging experience to say the least, but I was supported and guided every step of the way by my attorney, Paul Panico and his assistant Beth. With the daunting task of hiring a divorce lawyer, I knew I would need someone with the right combination of knowledge, compassion and integrity. Paul and Beth were professional and caring and always quick to respond. I always felt I was in good hands. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Paul Panico for the legal expertise, compassion and understanding of the many complex facets associated with divorce.

- Felicia Quick


We have been so blessed to find him!

Paul is awesome! I’m so relieved we found someone who isn’t trying to take us for a ride and get as much money as possible from us. We haven’t officially had to hire him yet, however I’ve actually asked if we could pay him (with how many times I call him asking him questions I’ve started to feel bad) for the advice he gave us due to a custody matter, but he is so kind and has said multiple times he couldn’t knowingly take our money when he hasn’t done anything (even though he has by giving us advice about our case at least once a week). He truly does care and he truly is a great person. We have been so blessed to find him!

You are truly Amazing!

Thank you Paul and Beth for your support.

Paul and Beth have been wonderful and caring in my case. They have been understanding and "As a matter of fact". I am truly pleased with my decision on choosing Paul and his staff to represent me. Paul has been extremely calm, confident and patient with me and my concerns about the divorce. I know that the stress of divorce is rarely an easy situation to go through. Pauls Demeanor has made the situation comforting for me. I had to make changes on my part to trust and allow Paul and his team to do their job.

I had NO idea the opposing counsel we were going up against would sink so low for their client-- not only in their professionalism, but in supporting a fair & positive outcome for the best interest of our child.

With magistrates failing to show and numerous month-to-month hearing "pushbacks" because opposing counsel would purposely wait until the day of court or close of business the day prior to present their offers. This is because the more months that passed, it became a game of attrition for opposing counsel hoping I was just "settle" and drop the contempt against my ex-wife for refusing to let me see our daughter for nearly three months without even notifying the court or modifying our agreement.

Paul Panico and his whole legal team are very knowledgeable.

Working with Panico Law as our Columbus divorce lawyer as been great all the way around. Paul Panico and his whole legal team are very knowledgeable, responsive, and capable of handling any family law cases that come their way.

- Chris Baker


I am forever thankful!

Paul and his team were amazing from start to finish. I simply cannot say enough. I contacted many local family law attorneys and heard the same thing, pay for a 1 hour consultation so we can discuss, then they all gave me the same generic conversation. Paul stood out from our first call, he actually listened to what my situation was instead of just trying to book the 1 hour paid conversation. Not only did he actually listen to what I had to say, but gave me a response that the rest did not. I knew then, for such an important aspect of the life(the most important) Paul was absolutely who I needed. He was great at keeping me in the loop during the process(during Covid) and every single piece of guidance and advice given was spot on. I cannot express enough how much He helped change the direction of my family. I am forever thankful and would recommend Paul and his team to anyone and everyone!

I’d highly recommend Panico Law Group.

Paul was recommended to me by a friend, and I’d recommend Paul to you. I engaged Paul’s services for a divorce. I wasn’t sure what to expect because of my situation, but I felt reassured and confident after a free consultation. Everyone at Paul’s office was professional and knowledgeable, and they were always happy to explain something when I didn’t understand. They made the paperwork easy, and, knowing that I had Paul representing me, I had peace of mind. Despite COVID throwing a wrench in my timetable, Paul helped everything on my end go smoothly and quickly. Finally, after months of delay from my ex-partner, the divorce was finalized and WHAT A RELIEF. What a weight off of my shoulders. And Paul even gave me a courtesy call later that day to see how I was doing. Paul’s price is fair and the services are absolutely worth it. If you are going through a divorce, I’d highly recommend Panico Law Group.

I would recommend him to anyone going through a divorce.

Mr Panico made me feel at ease the moment we met. I don't think I would have wanted anyone else to do my divorce. Between him and Ms. Beth, I knew exactly what was going on with my case in a timely fashion. He was very reasonable with his prices. He always put my interest first before his wallet. I would recommend him to anyone going through a divorce.

Responded in a timely manner.

I found Paul Panico online when searching for a lawyer to help me with my child custody situation and noticed all the positive reviews from other clients of his. I’ve never had to deal with this before and didn’t know what to expect. Paul helped ease my mind from the very beginning. Anytime I had a question or a worry, I could reach out directly to Paul and he always responded in a timely manner. We ended up winning my case and I couldn’t thank Paul enough! I would highly recommend him to anyone needing assistance with custody of a child.

He is a highly intelligent man.

When it became necessary for me to lawyer-up, & my ex had already made a conflict of interest stigma with every divorce attorney in my area, was forced to look outside my small town, and I feel certain I made the best choice. My case was long, and complex, only to be drawn out more by the inefficiency of my local court system. Panico Law Group has the reputation and experience I was looking for, and my good feeling was only enhanced by the sound advise and knowledgeable guidance given to me by my attorney, Adam Elliot. Throughout my 4 year long journey to prevalence, I have been impressed with the common sense and wisdom Adam carries and imparted to me. He represented me as a woman, as a mother, and as the defendant the case. He is a highly intelligent man, who exudes humble confidence, which always kept our dynamic extremely professional, while still treating me an equal, with high regard for my journey and my desired outcome.

Panico Law Group to help me with my divorce.

Hiring an attorney is typically a stressful process, but Paul made it easy. He listens and he's respectful, but he has an aura about him and you can tell he has a lot of experience and is very good at what he does. Paul explained my options and the best course of action to take and I'm thankful that I was referred to him, I could not have made a better decision than hiring Panico Law Group to help me with my divorce.

I would highly recommend!

I hired Paul for my extremely contentious divorce. He and his assistant Beth made the entire process go as smoothly as possible. From our initial consult on, Paul always treated me with the utmost care and respect. He had my best interests at heart and truly helped me navigate through a challenging situation. I would highly recommend!

If we need anything I have no doubt who will hire!

Paul is awesome! I’m so relieved we found someone who isn’t trying to take us for a ride and get as much money as possible from us. We haven’t officially had to hire him yet, however I’ve actually asked if we could pay him (with how many times I call him asking him questions I’ve started to feel bad) but he is so kind and has said multiple times he couldn’t knowingly take our money when he hasn’t done anything (even though he has by giving us advice about our custody case at least once a week). He truly does care and he truly is a great person. We have been so blessed to find him! If we need anything I have no doubt who will hire!

Great Firm !!!

Great Firm !!! This is not one of the best human attorney that I know : . Extremely knowledgeable and respectful, Paul treat you with respect and kindness. Regardless of your creed, color, religion etc.... He’s not the type of lawyer that sees money first and your problems later. I personally felt embarrassed sometimes after receiving great advice from Paul for free. Also Paul always follow up with your phone calls. If you are looking for a divorce lawyer or any other problems you may have . Stop your search right now. Cause: you can’t find a better . I strongly recommended to you : Mr. Paul R Panico !

I will highly recommend Paul to anyone that seeks representation.

Paul and Beth have been wonderful and caring in my case. They have been understanding and "As a matter of fact". I am truly pleased with my decision on choosing Paul and his staff to represent me. Paul has been extremely calm, confident and patient with me and my concerns about the divorce. I know that the stress of divorce is rarely an easy situation to go through. Pauls Demeanor has made the situation comforting for me. I had to make changes on my part to trust and allow Paul and his team to do their job. I will highly recommend Paul to anyone that seeks representation. Thank you Paul and Beth for your support. Tom L.

Everything worked out in the end, and I believe the resolution we received was the right one.

I had the pleasure of working with Paul on a recent custody case. Paul took an incredibly stressful experience, hampered by distance, numerous time constraints, and Covid19, and made my life so much simpler. Paul's genial approach, calming nature, charismatic demeanor, and kind personality set the tone for every one of our meetings, hearings, and conversations. What was supposed to take 9 months, wound up taking 15 months, and not once did Paul lose sight of the finish line. I would have to reach out to Paul at times to ask for an update and sometimes communication was tough, but I knew his office was incredibly busy handling other cases just like mine. Everything worked out in the end, and I believe the resolution we received was the right one. I felt like I truly had a friend in Paul, someone who cared and respected me as a man looking out for his family. I would recommend Paul and his group to anyone looking that kind of genuine experience.
