Gerald Maggio - The Maggio Law Firm Inc Company Profile


Sadly, divorce law has attracted many practioners who are after big money to be made by taking advantage of clients, of their fear of losing everything, possibly even their children, and of their momentary desire to hurt their spouse by running up the bill unnecessarily high through a pointlessly protracted fight which is done by preparing and filing needless motions certain to be denied anyway.

Gratefully, consumers report The Maggio Law Firm and Gerald Maggio in Irvine CA as proven to be honest and compassionate in a way that saves them money compared to others, with the kind of empathy for their difficult situation that gives them peace of mind, and with better outcomes for his clients.

Consumers Cite The Maggio Law Firm in Irvine CA & Gerald Maggio For Better Results & Honesty With Clients

Emotions can run high in cases of divorce, separation and child custody. So many attorneys take advantage by indulging your fears or your desire to punish a spouse in order to run up a needlessly big legal bill. Unlike those, Gerald Maggio is especially known for being an expert in divorce matters who is also honest and seeks the best outcome for clients instead of the most billable hours. Gerry Maggio shares, "It's understandable how a hurt person feels like punishing their spouse by causing emotional or financial pain. But that's going to cost them a year or two of stress and unnecessary expense for the same resolution they could have gotten right at the beginning of the case. There's no sense in putting yourself through all that only to try to make a point. Divorce is going to have a cost no matter who you use but our way is to do only what's necessary on a case. We don't complicate matters or have them drag out by doing unnecessary things."

This was proven by multiple reports we received about The Maggio Law Firm, such as one from Rachel who reported to us, "About Gerry Maggio, he was great. He is not one to file pointless filings. I did run into that with my ex, how his lawyer would file things that he knew wouldn't get approved just to run up a bill. Gerry definitely does not do that. My case was very confusing. My ex filed in two counties at the same time so it was kind of crazy but Gerry was able to work with me on that and fix that. Gerry is a good one to choose."

With so many attorneys getting away with making work to increase their bill, why doesn't attorney Gerry Maggio just do that too? He says, "We're in demand such that we don't have to make a lot on any one case and our ability to save clients money while treating them honestly has created the good reputation that maintains the demand for our firm. I've been on cases where our client's legal bill is half the other side, despite us having done more work than opposing counsel."

 

That was reflected in consumer reports to us, like one from Paul who related to us, "I recently used Gerry Maggio. Gerry worked on my case for two years. I really, really liked his prices. The prices were really good compared to my ex's attorney. I definitely recommend Gerry."

While Gerry Maggio doesn't over-complicate your case in order to run up a bill, he does do everything necessary to get you the best possible outcome as reflected in consumer reports we received like one from Tracy who told us, "Gerald Maggio, I've used him for two divorces. He's amazing. The last one he saved me eighty thousand dollars and the first one he saved me a year and half of alimony. I only had to pay six months and even that wasn't that much. He's really good. He's a really good negotiator. He's a very nice man and very honest. He's very fair. He charges a fair price."

Preserving your financial well-being is only one facet of spousal and child issues. Another is the emotional toll it takes and many attorneys lack the ability or motivation to mitigate that, leading to many sleepless nights and incredible stress for you. In contrast, The Maggio Law Firm and Gerald Maggio is especially well known for helping you get though the emotions of your case due to Gerry Maggio's patience, his real caring for clients, and being a good listener.

Those skills come in especially handy for clients seeking him for mediation, like one recent couple whose desire for mediation seemed impossible due to their extreme acrimony. Gerry Maggio relates, "There was so much animosity between them I was surprised they were even willing to try mediation. Sometimes they got into screaming matches in my office and we'd have to separate them and talk to them independently but through multiple sessions, amazingly, we were able to get the entire case resolved to their satisfaction."

Despite Gerry Maggio's reputation for compassion, he's known to be tough and fight hard in the client's best interest like one with a complicated case involving division of assets including three business plus custody and more. He explains, "The spouse was horrible to my client and very contentious throughout. Ultimately we took it to trial and came up with a very good outcome. Justice was served because the spouse didn't get what they were asking for and in fact, the court didn't make any order for my client to pay legal fees. That spouse left with a lot of legal bills and expert bills because we let the court see that person for who they were."

Those kind of better results in challenging situations were attested to by consumer reports we received, like one from Andrea who told us, "With regards to Gerry Maggio, I highly recommend him. Very professional, wonderful result. I couldn't think of anybody better to work with. He helped me with two issues and both of them turned out wonderful. If you're looking to engage him then you couldn't do any better. I highly, highly recommend him."

Orange County resident since 1985, Gerald Maggio lives in Irvine CA with his wife of 25 years and their three teenagers. He was inspired to get into law while still in high school and soon after graduating law school he found his natural abilities a perfect fit for family law. When not at the firm he's active with his children, having been involved with Indian Guides and Indian Princesses, coaching baseball and soccer, and still attends two or three games every week to watch his kids play. Friends describe him as considerate and trustworthy, while clients know him as patient and always available to take their calls to answer questions.

So rather than be sucked in by someone taking advantage of your natural fear, pain, or momentary urge for revenge by racking up huge legal bills in an unnecessarily drawn out process, consumers pointed us to Orange County firm The Maggio Law firm and Gerry Maggio as the one proven to save them money and spare them emotional turmoil while getting them better results.

As put to us by Adrien in one of the consumer reports we received, "Regarding Maggio Law Firm, I had a very, very good experience with him. I just loved working with him. I went with him because I wasn't happy with my first attorney so I had dropped her and found him. I went in to a consultation and knew that he was my guy. I absolutely refer you to him. If you are thinking of possibly going with Gerry Maggio I would absolutely one hundred percent say to do it."
