A well oiled machine. Charlie & the staff at DeFrancisco & Falgiatano are thorough, comprehensive and determined. Our case was unique as there were two suits in one, voluminous records/files, jury mis-ques , appeals and judgement arguments. We were treated with care & concern, over a case that spanned YEARS. We were never told what we wanted to hear, we were kept well informed. We were impressed with the fact that many questions could be asked and answered by members of the staff, and if unable to do so, calls were returned expeditiously. Unfortunately due to the multiple defendants involved, and the complications of the case, there was a lot of grey areas which through their perseverance were enlightened, even rewritten. We believe the most impressive aspect of Charlie & his associate Jean Marie is that they keep the human element present, no matter how complicated or frustrating the case turned.
Taking someone to court can be a very intimidating process, but working with Charlie removes any anxiety. Charlie is knowledgeable, cares about his clients, and makes the the process appear seamless at the same time. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a lawyer.
When people discuss lawyers, they do not always have good things to say. They are the butt of jokes and ridicule. Charlie Falgiatano is the opposite of that. He was caring, knowledgable and made me feel like my case mattered. It wasn't about the money for Charlie, it was about his client and doing what was best for them.
Mr. Falgiatano contacted me personally and recruited my case. In the almost 2 years he represented me, he never met me in person, failed to return phone calls, did not respond to letters or emails and failed to perform 2 depositions in my case. He abandoned my case and waited until all of the deadlines ran out to inform me he was doing so. Due to his serious mishandling of my case, I cannot find another attorney to take it over. The damage he has done is irrepairable.
