    Highly Recommended!

    We hired Mr. Bompiani for a criminal case. He is worth every penny plus some. I found Mr. Bompiani, not only to be caring and professional, but also extremely knowledgeable and aggressive during the trial!!! I was so pleased with the way he conducted himself throughout everything. We definitely appreciated his kindness and support during the difficult trial.

    We can't say enough about him

    We recently watched Mr. Bompiani try a case involving charges against a good friend of ours. He was incredibly professional, knowledgeable and persuasive. And the best part is, he won! He knows what he is doing and we are so thankful for him. We highly recommend him.

    Incompetent, Negligent, Dishonest, Arrogant, and Insensitive

    I selected Mr. Bompiani to handle my divorce based on the positive ratings that were posted here on AVVO, which do not reflect the actual quality of services that he provides. I retained him at the end of January and since our initial consultation, he has been minimally invested in my case. Shortly after retaining him, I sent him an email containing details and questions about my case. It was evident that he did not take the time to review this information, as he asked for it later. On the rare occasion that he did respond to my questions, he provided very brief, indirect responses.

    Mr. Bompiani also did not complete tasks in a timely manner, if at all. He indicated that he would be sending me a form to sign and return to his office, but I did not receive it until nearly two weeks later. I asked him to keep me informed of any actions that had been taken, but he never contacted me. Although he claimed to have sent a letter to my spouse's attorney to indicate that he would be representing me, I received a letter from my spouse's attorney a month after retaining Mr. Bompiani indicating that he had received no such letter. Mr. Bompiani did not have the decency to apologize, even though his negligence undoubtedly made me look uncooperative and irresponsible to my spouse’s attorney.

    Mr. Bompiani’s staff is also essentially useless. Each time that I called his office, I spoke to a different receptionist, each of whom would inform me after asking who I was and putting me on hold that Mr. Bompiani was in court. I imagine that they would have his schedule and know prior to putting a client on hold whether he was in the office. I also asked to speak to his assistant multiple times, but was repeatedly told that she was unavailable. I never had any of my calls returned.

    After receiving the letter from my spouse's attorney, I attempted to reach Mr. Bompiani for two days to express my dissatisfaction and to request that my retainer be refunded. Mr. Bompiani eventually sent me an email stating that I could expect to receive a refund check by the end of the week, but it is one week later and I have yet to receive it. He has since offered to do a PayPal transfer. What kind of attorney accepts payments or provides refunds via PayPal?! And why would he offer to issue payment via PayPal if a check had actually been issued? I informed Mr. Bompiani that I would not accept the refund via PayPal and wanted confirmation that I would be receiving the refund via check, to which I received no response. When I texted him today, he texted back defensively for several minutes, but failed to offer an explanation for his lack of response. Ironically, this was the most responsive that he has ever been since I became “his client.”

    I am at a loss for how he has managed to obtain such glowing ratings. Divorce is a traumatic life event, and he seems to have lost sight of what it is to be an honest, compassionate human being. He was quick to take money for services that he failed to provide. The fact that he has sufficient time to post on Twitter, Instagram, and other social media outlets on a regular basis adds insult to injury. If you are seeking a responsive attorney to handle your divorce or any legal matter, I strongly recommend against Mr. Bompiani. Judging by other reviews that are listed here, I wonder if I would have received more attention if I had committed a heinous crime. It appears that he only devotes his attention to cases that will make him look good, especially when he is currently running for District Judge. In a recent post from Pittsburgh Post Gazette, he stated that the new District Judge will “need to show a great deal of commitment and responsibility, fundamentals that are a cornerstone of his law practice.” Based on his “handling” of my case, I beg to differ.

    EXTREMELY POOR IN EVERY ASPECT

    Our daughter picked Attorney Bompiani to handle her divorce. Be aware that this rating means very little for this attorney. He said that he would take care of her in her divorce but never did what he claimed he did. He was to send out a letter to the attorney of her husband and after a month still had not done so. After almost 2 months he has done absolutely nothing, including the letter to the other attorney. A divorce is a very devastating time in a person's life and when she obtained him for her divorce we were hoping that this would take the stress off of her and he would deal with all the things that needed to be done. However, after receiving the retainer he did absolutely nothing. He lied and said that he had sent a letter to the other attorney, when in fact none was ever sent. His staff is useless and apparently his assistant is unable to do anything. When you contact his office they brush you off and say that they will forward your message. This man has truly lost sight of what it is to be a honest , compasionate human being and has no feelings for the person that he represents. It's all about the HIM and money and nothing about the person. It's sad that he doesn't realize the personal toll that the circumstance is having on the person and what they are going through and then having to deal with his insensitivity. We have been fighting now to get our retainer fee back because he has done absolutely nothing, He has agreed to give it back and we have that in writing. This is a very insecure way of payment. It's ridiculous and I feel it's just another way of him putting off refunding us. We have contacted him almost every day because he never follows through on what he says he has done. It just adds to an already stressful time. It is very frustrating and aggravating to be treated in such a heartless way. The refund of the retainer is needed in order to obtain an attorney that will actually get this divorce moving. I gave him 1 star only because it would not allow me to give none.

    Too busy for you.

    I hired my Bompiani 2 years ago to help with an estate matter. He was fast to take my cash for retainer and then charge me for my free consultation. I haven't heard from him in 16 months. I've have called the office 4 times in the last 6 months along with several emails with no response. Don't waste your time here . He may be good but he's too busy to take care of ALL of his clients

    worst experience in my life

    If I didn't have to check a star, I would have left it empty, that's how bad of an attorney he was. Not to mention he asked me to do things and I would and he would never follow through. He cost me more then money! 95% of the time I had to go to courthouse and file my own paperwork. He wrote up a paper to have the other party to sign it. He never mailed it and I had to have the other party sign it. Needless to say when I tried to have the paperwork enforced, Bompiani NEVER took it to the judge to be signed, AND CHARGED ME FOR IT! Never returned my calls. 'Not even a secretary in the office to answer me or at the office if I needed help with something. To top it off, he never even met with me until the night before my hearing for 3 hours even after I called multiple time months ahead of my hearing! Definitely not enough time to prepare for a hearing! I lost A LOT of money, for nothing. Now I have to start all over, with a FANTASTIC attorney, and pay all over again! What a horrible person, attorney, with no heart at all! I WOULD NEVER REFER ANYONE TO HIM....DON'T FALL FOR IT!

He fights for the best outcome for his clients and he understand that a lot of things in this world doesn't make sense, but he helps you get through it for the better. He is a excellent lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone who is need of a excellent lawyer that cares.

    Cannot thank him enough

    I searched a long time for the right attorney who would fight for my case. After calling multiple attorneys, I finally decided to give Mr. Bompiani a call. He was the most personable attorney that I had spoken to. I put all of my trust in him and I couldn't be happier that I did. He genuinely cared for fighting for me and I was able to put my past behind me because of him. I would recommend Mr. Bompiani to anyone searching for criminal defense.

    Mr. Bompiani had my back from the start!!

    I was charged with some very serious crimes including aggravated assault and robbery. Mr. Bompiani aggressively defended me and we worked out a very favorable plea deal. Highly recommend.

    The best of the best

    Mr Bompiani is a class act attorney. He is very good at what he does and is a man of his word. Mr. Bompiani was kind enough to take my case out of the kindness of his heart, he represented me as a private attorney with no concern of payment at all. I would have been more than happy to pay that man thousands for his representation but he shook my hand at the end of my trial and said don't worry about it. The man got me off 3 major felony drug charges, he embraced myself an my family as if we were his own. We are very very thankful to Anthony Bompiani and if you want an attorney who cares more about the person than the dollar you will pick him as your attorney. If I could recommend any attorney to anyone it would be Anthony Bompiani, he's worth more than any fee you may have to pay to obtain him.....I am and always will be truly thankful to have had such good representation. Pick this man, he will help you with more than just your legal troubles. Most attorneys want your cash and are heartless, Mr Bompiani is a man of integrity and I thank him to the fullest for his kindness an legal services.
