The following are letters and testimonials from past and current clients of our firm.
Alex fought tenaciously for my interests
Upon meeting Alex, I was received with a warm greeting and immediately felt right at home. As I explained the situation of my divorce, Alex asked clear concise questions that helped him gain insight that separated my emotions from the facts. Through his immediate attention, within days (and my choice), I was able to serve my ex wife with divorce papers. It was an agreement that was spot on in defending my interests. To my amazement, my ex wife and I both signed the agreement within 10 days. Not only were all my needs met but my wants as well. Through over 20 years of legal experience, Alex does his work with confidence, tenacity, and his flawless preparation has brought him to the top of his profession. When I felt at my worst, Alex fought tenaciously for my interests and got the results that I needed. Alex wouldn’t settle for anything less, and neither should you.
Efficient, patient, companionate and trustworthy.
Mr. Sklavos’ office has all the experience and knowledge of a large firm, with the personalized attention that only a small firm can offer. He is prompt with phone calls, on top of my matter, extremely competent and prepared. He also showed a genuine compassion for my situation and needs. Mr. Sklavos is an excellent attorney.
Efficient, patient, companionate and trustworthy. Divorce is traumatizing and when I hired Alex because 2 friends recommended him (a man and a woman), I found him and his assistant to be most helpful and knowledgable. In a matter of a few months I was signing my settlement in court. I highly recommend Alex
…compassion, respect and patience.
Mr. Sklavos has represented me well with compassion, respect and patience. Mr. Sklavos is quick to respond to your concerns, is well versed in divorce law and will do what it takes to protect your rights. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a divorce attorney that is no nonsense and gets the job done no matter how complicated it may be. He will fight for you. He is extremely reliable and has an exceptional knowledge of the clients he represents as well as his opponents.
Thank you Alex
also includes his heart.
My Wife Marilyn and I are pleased to say that Alexander Sklavos not only gives his clients excellent representation, but also includes his heart.
he’s a lawyer with compassion
Alex Sklavos is an extremely rare commodity in the legal profession; he’s a lawyer with compassion, who fights vigorously for the rights of children and his client. I came to Alex, after I was divorced, with a very contentious situation. Two previous lawyers failed to protect me & my children yet, succeeded in charging me hundreds of thousands of dollars, Alex immediately took my case to insure my children were safe and well taken care of. I went from being an abused ex-spouse, without much monetary support, to Alex getting me an order of protection, which ultimately ended in my being awarded sole custody of my children. After years of fighting with my ex,
I now have peace, my children are seeing a therapist, they are starting a prestigious private school in the fall and a monetary settlement with my ex is nearing a close; none of which would have been possible without Alex standing up for us. After seeing my ex-husband run circles around 2 other lawyers, Alex got results like no one had before. He stood up for the rights of my children and me and never once backed down. He walked me through each and every legal step in the post-divorce process, he explained the ins and outs of the Judicial system as well as his strategies for achieving our goals. He knew all the players and was obviously respected by the Court and co-counsel. Alex Sklavos stands out amongst matrimonial attorneys as a example for the rest to follow.
…I have never needed to look any further.
In the past ten years being an employer for over 150 employees and dealing in the ever changing financial markets. I have had to deal with numerous different levels of legal counsel and I have had to deal with many attorneys, but back in 2005 I met Alex and ever since then I have never needed to look any further. Alex was able to help me with almost every legal aspect of representation and if it was outside of his realm of expertise he would not stop until he found the right attorney to partner up with him on the case.
He is aggressive, always there for you, and unlike 99% of attorneys out there today, he has integrity which goes along way when you put your trust and business into the hands of an attorney like Alex.
…always looking out for my best interests.
I want to take this time to thank you for handling my divorce. I am well aware that at times I was not easy to deal with. You were always professional & handled everything always looking out for my best interests. You are an asset to your profession. I would have no problem recommending you to anyone I knew that needs legal counsel. I wish you and your family all the best.
I knew I would be in for the fight of my life!
Alex, I remember the first day I went to see you I was scared actually in fear for my life. I was married for 9 years had a 1yr old daughter and was existing in a physically and verbally abusive marriage. What was worse was that my then husband was in law enforcement and I felt completely helpless. I had attempted to leave many times before but somehow got talked back into the downward spiral, I was told by him on several occasions that he would “destroy me and keep my daughter”. I believed him.
I knew I would be in for the fight of my life! I needed to find someone who would understand, listen and care what would happen to both myself and daughter. Yes, it is very easy to find an attorney look in the yellow pages there is name after name of lawyers willing to take your money and show up at court, but I found so much more in YOU Alex.
When we sat down for our first meeting I recall how intent your facial expressions were leaning over the conference room table to hear my sobbing voice, you never interrupted. You asked me what I wanted, what was most important to me to have after the divorce was over. (Which was sole custody of my daughter) Sitting with your yellow legal pad writing down everything and like a seasoned General formulating your battle plan.
I’m sure at the time you could have never realized what a huge part of each other lives we would become. Nearly daily phone calls constant court dates, meetings with law guardians and the general counsel you provided at such a vulnerable time in my life. You always came prepared ready for anything that got thrown at us by my ex-husband 5 different lawyers. We became one of the first test cases for Suffolk County’s Integrated Domestic Violence Part melding both family court and criminal court related to divorce and domestic violence. We fought many battles and we won the WAR!
You never lost faith in my strength to overcome the obstacles set before us. The move from my marital home to and apartment, with sole custody of my daughter, the order of protection, the panic alarm place in my home, the fight to retain my Nursing degree as my own, the near foreclosure of the martial home (since my ex decided not to pay the mortgage), the sale of the home, my last will and the closing on my new home…
I would have to say that you are one of the 10 most important people in my life and I thank GOD for all the support, care and council you have selflessly provided. I no longer consider you my lawyer but my friend. Mere words can not express the gratitude I feel. Thank You for believing in me, fighting so hard for Nina and I, without you my life would not have the zest and quality it does now.
Thank you Alex for all you have been to me and continue to be. Your most loyal client/friend Christine
…a rare combination.
Alex, I needed to thank you for all the assistance to myself and my clients on various legal issues. As you know in my thirty years in the financial industry I have dealt with numerous attorneys and I have found you to be both extremely professional and understanding. This is indeed a rare combination.

…a very trying time in my life…
Dear Alex; During a very trying time in my life you were there for me every step of the way, My divorce was difficult to get through but with your aggressive manner in handling my situation it was clear to me that I made the right choice to have you as my attorney.
The best attorney on Long Island

Alex was with me every step of the way through my nightmare of a divorce. All I ever wanted was joint custody of my little girl and Alex made a promise to me from day one that I wouldn’t lose my little girl and I had a strong case. Read More
