Received payment for services but did not do anything. Terminated all contact. Missed over 10 appointments made. The paralegal/secretary refused to book appointments after a certain period of time. Missed the deadline of my appeal. I hired a new attorney. However, the delay not only caused negative effects financially, but had had an adverse impact on my career.
Donâ€™t Hire This Law Firm!! They canâ€™t even do a simple speeding ticket!!
Alright I hired this Law firm for a simple speeding ticket, paid them good money to get this taken care of so it wouldnâ€™t show on my Insurance. I mean it's so simple that even the stupidest Lawyer should be able to handle it, right?? But not Luke Ciciliano, he didn't even do anything with the ticket. Never kept me informed or sent me any information on it at all.
So about two weeks after hiring him I called his office and gave the person who answered the phone my case number. They told me that it would all be taken care of and that they would inform me if I needed to do anything.
Now this was back in May of 2010.Two weeks ago (June, 2011) I receive word that not only has no one token care of my ticket but I now owe $400 and have a warrant out for my arrest. So I of course call the law firm and leave an â€œUrgent Messageâ€ which is what the secretary called it for him to get back to me.
I have now been calling this Law firm for over two weeks with no response and have even sent them over 3 emails through this site and thro his email address that the secretary gave me.
I guess that after they receive your money they have no reason for them to do anything for you at all, including taking care of what you pay them for in general. I also think its funny how all the secretaries in their office can only leave a message for them and not able to help you at all with anything else. Man I sure hope he doesnâ€™t pay them a lot case they are pretty much useless.
If you pay this law firm any money at all donâ€™t expect to get anything in return but headache. I mean if they canâ€™t even take care of a speeding ticket. How can they handle anything else?
Out of all the attorneys I have known who handle family law matters I would recommend Mr. Luke Ciciliano. What I appreciated from Mr. Ciciliano the most is that he was always available to take my phone calls and listen to me. He is an excellent attorney and I would recommend him first to any of my freinds or family members. I will also be retaining Mr. Ciciliano for any legal matters of my own that may arise in the future.
Luke Cicliano was extremely knowledgeable concerning child support laws and knew what to expect in my case. Luke was able to discerne what amount of support was expected by the other party and by the judge and settle the matter quickly and easily. Luke was able to explain to me what to expect and was always calm, collective and in control of handling the matter with the defense as well as the judge. I appreciate Mr. Ciciliano's help in this case and will use his services again in the future when needed.
Luke Cicliliano has been a real breath of relief in a family law case that has dragged on for the past three years. He is my 3rd attorney on this matter, but the first to really get the job done! He has made himself available at all hours of the day and night seven days a week. Ready with legal advise on my personal situation whenever I may need it. He is never in a hurry to get off the phone, spending many personal hours returning calls and answering reassuring emails. I wish I would have found him three years ago! While most attorneys are clock watching minute chargers only caring how much money they are billing for the time spent on your case, Mr. Ciciliano actually takes the time to be sure you understand what is happening every step of the way and exactly what you are being billed for. I've had an attorney that would charge me just for leaving a message with the secretary to have the attorney return my call. I would never get a call back, but I could always rely on a bill for leaving the message. Mr. Ciciliano will actually call me,even on weekends, to be sure I am comfortable and I understand all that is going on and going to happen in court. He has always been honest and forth coming, even if it was not the answer I was looking for, he always told me what to expect, what I should do and what the outcome would be, and he was always proven correct. He has handled my case in an extremely timely fashion and is well rounded enough to have been able to help me on a matter aside from my family court case in the justice court. If I ever need to obtain an attorney again in the future for any type case I definitely know the lawyer I have on speed dial.
I use Him last year and He took care of My ticket and i didnt even have to leave work. They stayed in contact with me every step of the way, IF ever you need help with a ticket or warrents i would call Luke first.
Thanks for every thing
Luke helped me with my divorce. He was very knowledgalbe and kept me well informed during the process. I feel that his services were well worth the fees I paid. He was very fair and affordable. I would strongly encourage to use Luke in any legal manor. DH
I have used Ciciliano more then once and have gotten everything taken care of with no worries and satisfied results, tickets were reduced with no points and no traffic school.
I will use them again.
I hired Luke as my divorce attorney. He filed my case with the court, but did not keep me informed on what was going on throughtout the case. Everytime I called he was either not available, scheduled conference calls that had to be rescheduled several times or would not return my calls. He never even called me on a scheduled conference call because he claimed he lost his phone. I made numerous attempts by text, phone messages and no response. My hearing had to be continued due to his negligence in responding to the opposing attorney and not working on my case. There several weeks that he didn't even show up for work. He just left my case hanging.However, he had no problem making sure he got every payment installment from me. Horrible attorney who does not look after his clients best interest.
I contacted Luke to file my divorce paperwork. He was affordable and the divorce was uncontested and simple so I assumed all would go well. I was wrong. As the say goes, you get what you pay for. Luke provided me with the appropriate paperwork, I completed it as needed and returned it to Luke. At this point, months go by as I wait for my divorce to be finalized. Tired of waiting, I called the office to get an update on the status. I did not get a call back. So, I called again. No call back. This because the regular routine for a week or two. After several weeks, Luke finally called and I was told that the paperwork was held up due to some changes the court required. Ok, fine...Luke was going to send the revised documents and I would sign them again. So, I waited, and waited more and the revised documents never showed up. Again, I began to call Luke and his office. They were nearly impossible to reach. When, I finally did speak with Luke, he said he must have emailed the document to the wrong email address and would I repeat if for him and I was promised the documents in 3 hours. Ha... 5 days later I still do not have the documents. Again, I begin calling over and over and finally reach his office receptionist who sets up a phone conference call for Sunday at noon. I thought that was an odd time but I accepted. The time of the call comes and goes and no call from Luke. I called him, left a voicemail and still no response.
Luke is like that contractor you hire to build a deck add-on to your house. You pay him upfront, he buys the materials and begins working. Your backyard is a disaster and the deck is unusable and half complete. You call and call and never get an answer and now you have more of a problem than you did before you even started. Thats what its like working with Luke. Enough said.
