I used Joe DiPietro for a divorce settlement . He was outstanding in his efforts and work product. I recommend him without reservation.
Mr. DiPietro contacted me through a legal internet match site. He seemed competent so I hired him to represent me in a family law matter. It was one of the worst mistakes of my life. He made legal mistakes that cost me thousands of dollars. He overspent my retainer by $20,000, and did not tell me until after the fact. He showed up for court looking like he had not slept for days. He made mistakes in Court that resulted in my having to pay another $10,000 to opposing council. The court case that ended up costing me $46,000 in legal bills was unsuccessful. He later tried to overchahrge me again. Since the VA Bar does not adjudicate fee disputes or legal mistakes, I tried to work with his malpractice insurance attorney to get a settlement, but was unsuccessful. Mr. DiPietro seems only to be concerned with making money at his client's expense. Do yourself a favor and avoid this attorney like the plague.
Mr. DiPietro represented me in a difficult and complex divorce proceeding. He is an excellent attorney and provided me with the representation and counsel that produced a final settlement agreement, which resulted in me not having to pay any additional alimony or support to my former spouse.
While Mr. DiPietro's legal expertise is beyond question, I was particularly impressed with his personal attention to my case and his dedication to me as his client. He was available day or night, and he ensured that I received the representation necessary for a fair and equitable settlement of my divorce. Joe and I not only have an attorney-client relationship, but we have become friends. I have total trust in his abilities as an attorney and as a person of the highest reputation and character. I can recommend Mr. DiPietro without reservation.
