    • I do not recommend Thomas Farinella.
    • I hired Thomas more than 3 years ago.
    • Thomas handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I hired him for a Child Visitation case because he was local to where I live and he specialized in Child Custody cases. He missed a Hearing date AND a Trial date. I also had to file for Bankruptcy during the Child Custody case. I paid him and he filed the paperwork incorrectly and it was dismissed. I had to file the bankruptcy myself several months later AFTER the Bankruptcy Court notified me of the dismissal.

    • I do not recommend Thomas Farinella.
    • I hired Thomas more than 3 years ago.
    • Thomas handled my Landlord / Tenant matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Non Attending Lawyer - Despite impressive verbal presentation lack of performance and attendance in court made necessary a replacement attorney. Lawyer failed to contact disputing party, failed to answer a civil lawsuit and failed to show up for court case as promised. Never returned fees he demanded as prepayment and was reported to disciplinary committee for misconduct. Also never showed up for his own case for a fee refund and has outstanding judgement.
    Unfortunately lack of diligent work approach makes this lawyer a poor choice despite intelligent manner, education, and well spoken demeanor. Hope I can get a refund someday.
