I retained Mr. Caturano regarding a family matter. I found his behavior less than professional. He procrastinates and in my opinion has a shaky understanding of legal issues and strategies. I ended up reporting these problems to the state Bar Association. I highly recommend that you do not retain Mr. Caturano -- there are much better attorneys available.
Joe is by far the best attorney out there. As for the other bogus review by a made up name, they were obviously confused. I have had such great representation by Joe. He is very conscientious. He always responds immediately to any of my concerns. I don't know how I would have made it through my divorce without him.
Besides lacking a 'bedside' manner, his advice is questionable, and his responsiveness is non-existence. For example, Caturano failed to inform me of the outcome of a significant hearing in my case for several months , and then only after I persisted. I was never able to establish any rapport and did not like his habit of talking past me, rather than listening at least occasionally. He often made unilateral decisions without consulting or informing me. I did not get the feeling he was very interested in my case or in law in general for that matter but was simply going through the motions. I had the impression he didn't spend much time on my case, or that he had a solid understanding of the issues and a firm grounding in the field.
Maybe it was a bad fit, a high powered corporate litigator doing family law stuff, which would be as much his current firm's fault as his. In any case, if you are looking for a responsive, collaborative, and 'empathetic' attorney; beware, Mr. Caturano is not the attorney for you.
