    • I do not recommend Philip Castrovinci.
    • I hired Philip 1-3 years ago.
    • Philip handled my Marriage / Prenuptials matter.

    He never returns phone calls - I use to look at my monthly phone bill to see how many times I would call his office to find out what was going on - he would take weeks to call me back, and most times he would have the secretary do it, leaving a message that he will return my calls shortly, but never does, until I have to keep calling again. He promises the moon but when the opposing party seems to remain difficult, he sways over to their side trying to convince you that unfortunately you will get nowhere - this is the easy way out for him. He thought that by giving my matrimonial home over to me, which was laden with financial debt and basically a money pit of which I could never afford, was a great deal for me and was actually insulted I didn't grab this offer. When my ex refused to pay his court ordered child support obligation, this attorney started advocating for him by telling me that contractors after all are having a hard time with the economy. I told him my ex is working making good money, as he always did. Then he recommended I hire a private investigator. When I did, Mr. Castrovinci still said that wasn't good enough because I didn't hire them for months at a time, following my ex for weeks on end. He knew I could never afford that and he also did not recommend I do that at the beginning. He always gave the other side mostly what they wanted, then came back and said that I can't expect much more because they won't settle.

    • I recommend Philip Castrovinci.
    • I hired Philip 1-3 years ago.

    Mr Castrovinci represented me in a case. He stayed in communication with me every step of the way. He accepted a payment plan and never made me feel like I owed him anything. Mr Castrovinci is a great Attorney, honest, non Judgmental, ethical and really cares...

  3. Find a firm that cares - this one does not

    • I do not recommend Philip Castrovinci.
    • I hired Philip more than 3 years ago.
    • Philip handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Phil Castrovinci has no interest in settling a divorce case. If your not a high roller your case goes to Matt Mady. Matt, is easier to speak with but just as unlikely to settle your case. This firm has chewed through $13,000 with no result. They work very well with the attorneys on the other side - which causes one to wonder who's interest they are representing. I now represent myself but will consider hiring an attorney from another firm. This firm does not care about your personal situation. It's a sign you up and bill you $1,000 a month firm ... for as long as you can bear it. My advice is to stay away and try someone else...
