I was really worried about going through a divorce. I shopped around and met with quite a few lawyers before I met Mr. Caturano. I knew right away that he was the right one. He helped me through every step of the process. He always kept me informed about exactly what was going on and while I could never know what to expect from my ex, I always knew that Mr. Caturano would handle it. He always called me back right away and responded to my e-mails very quickly. I don't know what I would have done without him. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate Mr. Caturano. A divorce is never easy to go through, but he made it much less painful. If you need anyone to deal with a divorce (or child custody) case, call him!
Mr. Caturano handled my custody dispute for me. While I understood that it was going to be a difficult process, Mr. Caturano worked hard to achieve the results that I wanted. He always explained what was going on and what I could expect in terms that I could understand. I found him to be very responsive by always answering my questions very quickly via phone, e-mail and in person. He was also very efficient. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.
I could not have chosen a better attorney. Joe was there for me every step of the way. I needed someone to handle my divorce and child custody matters and he always knew what to do. He was so professional. He kept me focused on what was important when I started to let my emotions get the better of me. He always responded to my phone calls and e-mails right away. I ended up with results better than I could have hoped for. I will be forever grateful to Joe.
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.
