I consulted with Joe Carasso regarding a severance agreement from a former employer. Joe was gracious, thorough and practical. Based on his advice I was able to negotiate better terms in the agreement. His fee was competitive but affordable.
Joseph Martin Carasso has been our lawyer for the past ten years. During that time he has performed numerous duties such as negotiating television production contracts, addressing right of publicity claims and assisting in our acquiring Errors and Omissions insurance policies.
Most importantly, Joe listens patiently and gives thoughtful legal advice to help us avoid problems. He is a trusted friend and ally who has provided the needed support during those tough times when you need a lawyer.
I met Joseph Martin Carasso 20 years ago while we were both volunteering for a charitable organization. We quickly became friends. At the time, I was fighting my health insurance company for refusing to pay for a surgery I was originally told would be covered. Mr. Carasso wrote a letter to the insurance company that made them reconsider and pay for the surgery. You can only imagine what a relief that was! Since that time, Mr. Carasso has drawn up my Last Will and Testament as well as contracts for my theatrical production company.
I believe that I have inside knowledge of his talent and skills as a lawyer because I also worked for him for approximately 10 years as his legal secretary prior to becoming a nurse. He is honest and direct with his clients. He genuinely cares and wants the best for them. He is also highly intelligent and articulate, and knows NY Law, whether it concerns estates, divorce, or contracts, just to name a few of his specialties.
Although I no longer work for Mr. Carasso, he has continued to be a great friend and the person I go to for legal advice. I highly recommend his services.
I obviously highly recommend Mr. Carasso. My divorce case was extremely long and difficult. I fired my first lawyer because she was more of a social worker and did not realize how much my ex-wife wanted to fight. I am so thankful I switched to Mr. Carasso. Not only did he work diligently on the case, but he actually cared about my well-being as a person. If you are looking for an honest lawyer, whose top priority is winning the case and not lining his pockets then you should put his name on the short list for possible attorneys.
