A friend told me about Mr. Romanowski. I checked him out on the internet, and saw that he was very well versed in LT issues and did a number of seminars on the topic. I was in a very dysfunctional same sex relationship and was now looking to divorce. There would be an inevitable dispute over the custody of our children and whether they could be removed from New Jersey against my wishes. At the time, the samesex marriage issue was still up in the air in NJ. We were married in Massachusetts. ey to my hiring decision was that I was told he was a very unassuming guy with tremendous expertise with divorce/child custody. When I first got him on the phone, we clicked. I knew I had the ideal lawyer for me and my kids. I think of him as a scary smart teddy bear. He’s fanatical about reading, writing, teaching and practicing family law. I am a teacher myself, so I get his calling. Mr. omanowski is direct, friendly, accessible and grounded. ou can tell he likes walking around in his own skin. He is soothing to talk to. He’s really big on listening. His staff is excellent, and mirrors his caring attitude. I don’t think he would have it any other way. When I call in, Curtis and his staff dive on my phone calls and emails. It was almost as if I was their only client. Always felt very important. It was such a huge relief knowing they were in my corner believing in me. I never went to sleep wondering if my attorney was taking care of everything. That feeling was priceless for me. My exwife’s lawyer was kind of nasty and talked a mile a minute. During one meeting in court, Curtis told her, “I strongly recommend decaf,” and everyone broke out laughing. He is a master at conflict resolution. His timing is impeccable. He never comes across as anything but lighthearted, but he is serious as a heart attack when it comes to knowing his stuff. Every time I called into the office, I was treated as if whoever answered was getting an unexpected call from a close friend. If I had a question, the answer was a phone call away. I never hesitated to call the office. My calls were always welcome. His entire staff was motivated to give their all to help you succeed with your case. They treat you as if you’re their only client. Curtis and the rest of his firm never “take their eye off the ball.” I take great pride in being a coach. Curtis has just what it takes in that department. He makes you want to go out there and win He was a serious competitor throughout my divorce. Just when you feel hopeless, a conversation with Curtis to “regroup” and stay focused gets you right back on track and keeps you encouraged and to not wanting to give up. It may not happen overnight, but when it is all over with, you will feel like it was all worth it for you and your kids. If you’re already searching or getting ready to seek out the ideal lawyer to fight to protect you and your family’s best interests, you can take it from me that Curtis omanowski is the best in the business. I’ll be eternally thankful, not just for Curtis’s guidance and caring through this highstakes contest that involved the most difficult life challenge I’ve had to bear, but for the excellent outcome. Everything I had hoped for and even more.
Curt’s a “top shelf” professional. A real thinker/doer. A close friend and colleague told me about Curt, and I couldn’t be more grateful. I myself am a psychologist and I often testify all across the country as an expert witness, so I’ve seen a lot of trials, depositions and trial lawyers at work. None better than Curt. Curt is painstakingly thorough, but he has a very gentle, lighthearted manner about him, so he was quite disarming with my ex and her lawyer during our several negotiation sessions. There’s a funny old saying that applies: He could tell you to go to hell and you’d look forward to the trip. My wife and I both thought we wanted to do a collaborative divorce. My colleague (he’s a lawyer and a psychologist, who also handles collaborative divorces) told me not to waste my time interviewing lawyers, because Curt was the man to go to. My friend taught with Curt at a continuing legal education program back in the mid90s geared to lawyers and mental health professionals involved in handling family law disputes. He told me that Curt introduced the collaborative divorce concept to New Jersey and that he also one of the cofounders of the overall concept. He was even interviewed on TV about it. Okay, I was sold. When I first met with Curt, he did a case assessment for me and waived me off the idea of using the collaborative law model. He told me my wife had a good lawyer and that he was confident that we could bargain things to a good finish without bothering with any models per se. He added that local lawyers were still using the mutual recusal pact idea, which Curt criticized years ago as potentially unethical. I have a 2003 Ohio State Law Journal article written by Professor John M. Lande entitled Possibilities for Collaborative Law: Ethics and Practice of Lawyer Disqualification and Process Control in a New Model of Lawyering, where he specifically references Curt’s work on the subject. True to his word, with Curt’s help, my exwife and I both settled our case on terms we both felt to be quite acceptable. And it sure didn’t involve a cookiecutter solution, but one which was customsuited to our particular and highly unusual situation after a very longterm marriage and highly complicated income and asset picture. Notably, both my ex and her attorney shook Curt’s hand and even kissed him on the cheek on the day we put the divorce though. We made it through what could have been a very rough divorce, and we split as friends
My situation was quite difficult. My ex and I were trying to resolve things with a paralegal we knew from our religious center. Next thing I knew, I was getting notice from the paralegal’s lawyer employer, challenging me with annulment and deportation. This was crazyMr. Curtis and his team have helped me to ring my case to a correct outcome y their knowledge and professionalism. During the complete case they cited many eamples when needed. Mr. Curtis made sure I understood everything, he eplained many times to me in nonlegal terms too so that I had complete clarity aout where the case was currently and what is comingup in my case. He and his team always looked for ways if the case could e settled through mutual agreement etween me and my ehusand, so that my money is not wasted in unwanted trials. Mr. Curtis and his team strongly elieve in resolving the case through mutual agreements and winwin outcomes, if there is a possiility which is remarkale I feel. His demeanor had een outstanding through the case, during the case he was aggressive when needed and calm and composed otherwise. He is not only a wonderful lawyer ut a great reader of human minds His presence net to me in the court made me feel highly confidant and very relieved. ven though my case ended without a trial, ut the way he prepared for all the legal proceedings, I am sure we would have won the trial if the situation would have arisen. I recommend his work with asolutely no reservations.
Curt is getting to be a bit of a divorce and family law icon in New Jersey. I’m a Certified Matrimonial Attorney myself and carry his new treatise on the child custody, support and protection, “Relationships Involving Children” around with me often. I’ve attended Curt’s seminars, probably going back to the mid-90s, and he’s about as hard-hitting as they come. I started out having another family lawyer in my office represent me in my own gut-wrenching divorce. When we started getting close to trial, I decided I’d better get Curt to represent me, since he’s known to be one of the best trial lawyers in the business. Maybe only a handful of divorce lawyers in NJ rise to Curt’s level of excellence when it comes to trial advocacy. The stuff that he just knows off the top of his head – case law, evidence rules, and trial technique – is just amazing. It seems as though every time I pick up the New Jersey Law Journal, he’s publishing another excellent article. I actually keep a separate folder for all his comments on Bar Association’s family law list serve. For all his erudition, he’s probably one the most down-to-earth, entertaining guys I know. In my opinion, you couldn’t hire anyone better. - Bill
I will start by saying that Curtis J. Romanowski is an exceptional attorney and has helped me tremendously. After meeting with Curt, I immediately felt a strong sense of trust and loyalty. Curt was empathetic to my situation and truly wanted to help me. Mr. Romanowski is compassionate and caring yet strong spoken and courageous. EXACTLY what I needed. Curt and his entire staff were absolutely wonderful. The entire team has an impeccable work ethic and were there to assist me in everything I needed. They made me feel important, like my case was their first priority. They were always available and able to answer my questions. I was never ignored or pushed aside. Curtis J. Romanowski and his staff are exceptional, going above and beyond what is expected. I cannot say enough about Curt and his staff and I highly recommend Mr. Romanowski if you are looking for the best available lawyer. Curtis J. Romanowski is a clever, experienced, honest, hard-working attorney that will do what it takes to get justice.
Mr. Romanowski exceeded my expectations as he successfully helped me fight off the demands of my ex-spouse and her counsel during our divorce. Throughout the process, he was always very professional and provided me good sound advice. After having consultations with other attorneys, I selected Curt because of his straightforward and direct approach to my legal situation as well as his experience and knowledge of the laws and processes. He was always very patient with me when I would bring him a list of questions and concerns that he would clearly explain and address. Mr. Romanowski and his office staff were very responsive to my calls and emails. I am very happy with the outcome of my divorce thanks to Mr. Romanowski and his staff.
I am very thankful that I had the opportunity and pleasure to have Curtis by my side for one of the most difficult things any person has to endure in their life. Curtis was a careful listener and provided not only excellent legal advice, he provided an outlet that enabled me to discuss every detail to make sure that all decisions we made together were for the best interests of everyone involved when necessary. His knowledge is vast, his associations are top notch and his work ethic is first class. Paired with an incredible staff, my experience was one that would certainly make me recommend his firm to anyone dealing with the same situation. I consider Curtis a good friend as well as an outstanding lawyer.
He was great. My third lawyer. My ex made about 17 or more dyfs complaints and a domestic violence complaint against me. My prior lawyer got the dv complaint dismissed but he wasn’t a custody expert like Curtis. The trial was already in progress when I hired him. The judge wouldn’t grant any adjournments to give him more time to prepare. He worked around the clock and started by cross examining one of the experts who had already written a detailed report. Curt’s case was primarily focused on parental alienation. He did great cross exams of both experts and a stunning written summation. I am finally happy with the results and my daughters are old enough to know they were played by their mother.
I had a god awful case that started with another judge who referred it to arbitration that didn’t work with one of the top retired judges and I was represented by a top lawyer. It went nowhere and the case was temporarily dismissed. We had over a hundred investment properties. All sorts of untrue allegations against me. We worked it out. I think my husband’s lawyer was intimidated by Curt and the Monmouth county judge clearly liked him. When we were waiting another lawyer was arguing her case and the judge said jokingly that Mr. Romanowski was in the courtroom. This was right after the first volume of his book came out and the comment was taken lightheartedly as intended.
Mr. Romanowski represented me several times On my divorce he filed a complaint with an order to show cause because my husband was buying stuff and covering expenses for his girlfriend who had the same last name as me. We are all Vietnamese and there are a lot of common last names. The judge had us in and my husband started to cry to get sympathy. The judge told him this was a very serious matter and did he understand that. The divorce went very well for me. Many years later my husband hired a lawyer to come after me. We went to his deposition at the law center and Mr. Romanowski told him I had nothing to say because he didn’t comply with the rules. Nothing after that.
After half a dozen initial consults, from local recommendations to law school professors, to heads of major firms, all fell short in knowledge of what I had already researched to be the leading case law for our family. Across New Jersey and 1 into New York, I was finally blessed to have found Curtis Romanowski. He was an anchor in a difficult storm. Within a complex, cutting edge family law case, he provided the highest level of knowledge (he wrote the book) and well laid out, logical planning. He and his staff were also fiscally sensitive and above board. Thankfully, we now have the adoption of our beautiful daughter. We will forever be grateful.

Curt represented my daughter the year before he represented me. I live in California and the other side served me by throwing a fedex envelope in my driveway. I ignored it. The next thing you knew, I found out I was divorced and that my retirement account was affected. He made a motion to set the entire thing aside because he said a necessary certification was not completed and that it prevented the judge from getting jurisdiction. A year after the divorce wentthrough, it was reversed along with the retirement plan damage. This left me in a great negotiation position. Thanks.
He handled a domestic violence case and a divorce for me several years ago. He told me my violence case was very weak, but I insisted on it. He suggested we take the divorce to a blue ribbon early settlement panel. We got a good result there. My husband is worth a lot of money and I don’t work. We had a long marriage and didn’t get along for years. He started balking on the day we tried to put the divorce though and the judge said he didn’t think there was an agreement. Curt said, okay, let’s set up for trial then. We settled and put it through after lunch.
Mr. Romanowski handled a domestic violence trial against my ex in Union County. She actually had witnesses come in in disguise. The judge would not hold up my complaint. She actually scratched holes in my mom’s face and said they were self-inflicted. I brought it again with further problems in Monmouth County. Curt came off summer vacation to try it. He examined the legs off my ex and with internet views of the guy who was threatening me. Later, she retained a lawyer, but the judge said that she was already examined. We settled on terms very good for me.
One can’t comprehend the full impact of divorce and custody particularly when just starting down that road. Having Mr. Romanowski and his team representing me during this very rough time was my good luck that honestly made a tremendous difference in my life and the health and well-being of my child because of the outcome. You really can’t put a price on that and you won’t fully appreciate his services until it’s over and you begin to look back and consider what could have happened differently.
Curtis in an attorney with a strong track record and in depth expertise of family law in NJ. He is a lawyer who is an experienced negotiator who puts things into context, listen well and serve the law with the best interest for his client. In my situation the resolve of my divorce was favorable yet more importantly it helped my ex-spouse and I figure out a negotiated settlement that enabled us to move forward and protect our children in the process. To this end - I thank Curtis and his team.
Top notch family law attorney. Did a wonderful job securing my interest across the entire divorce and child custody process. Curt and his staff were a wealth of knowledge about the process and were able to answer all questions and gave superb counsel at all stages of the proceedings. Successfully dealt with multiple attempts by the adversary twist the process in favor of my ex. 5 star rating from start to finish.
I had a tough case. I am self-employed and my wife used to do the books for my business. She hired a smart ass lawyer up where we lived and he had a lot of political juice. Didn’t matter to Curt. He pretty much plays the ball where it lies. Pressure doesn’t get to him at all. I really don’t understand why people go with inexperienced professionals on a price basis when the stand to lose big.
I used Mr. Curt Romanowski for my case and I must say, after all of the attorneys I had contacted, Curt made me feel very comfortable. He was very attentive and knowledgeable and handled my case with professionalism. He helped me through one of the toughest times of my life and I am very grateful to have had such a wonderful attorney on my side.
Mr. Romanowski was really on point with all the information he provided me on a new custody arrangement that I am going to have with my ex. He went above and beyond to send me similar cases as well so that I understood all areas of what I was trying to do. Very pleasant and quick replies via email. Definitely a pleasure working with him.
He handled a removal case for me many years ago before he was an authority. He did a great job. The judge issued a tentative decision that was not in my favor. I was frightened and annoyed. Mr. Romanowski opposed the tentative and the judge was impressed with his argument. I was able to relocate with my children.
I wanted to change my parenting since we were both kids when we had our daughter and the mother was staying with her family and I had a bad apartment with bad work hours. Things improved, I got married and we live in a good place with regular hours. My exes lawyer was a gigantic ass and Curt won for us.
He took me through a trial and did very well for me. It was a multiple day trial in Middlesex and he has another one in Middlesex another in Morristown and still another one in some other county going on in the same time frame. I say this because it felt like I was his only client.
Curtis J. Romanowski is an amazing attorney! Very knowledgeable. Pays attention to detail. Quick with emails and phone calls. Everything you would want in an attorney. He keeps you updated every step of the way. I could not be more pleased with the work he has done for me.
He did great for me. My ex was crazily aggressive and his lawyer did nothing to calm him down. Mr. Romanowski did. We settled on very favorable terms for me but now my ex isn’t complying and Mr. Romanowski is ready to retake my case after better than ten years.
My case was crazy. My husband was a porn addict and probably had venereal diseases. I had problems of my own and had problems seeing. The other lawyer was attacking me and Curtis politely put an end to that. We settled and things are okay.
