Worst lawyer I have ever had! What a bad experience. Does not answer to calls and will only direct you to an assistant. I lost when it was a VERY EASY LEGAL MATTER; then I got blamed for all their negligence!
Here's the quick version: They recommended we post an illegal notice with a potential fine of $250/day, kept $600 without completing any work, and never responded to my email requesting a full refund.
More detail: It's possible we simply had bad luck with our service from David DiJulio and his firm, given the other reviews on here were the reason I even called them, but they told us to post an eviction notice illegally on our tenant's door, and then refused to refund $600 of a $1500 retainer after one 20min phone call where an associate told us we would "have to wait until David DiJulio is back in the office to get any answers." They charged us for "research" but never told us what they were researching.
David DiJulio took on a complicated case for us almost about 7 months ago. Throughout the entire process he, and his staff, have been extremely efficient. The whole entire law group cares about what their name is attached to, so every filing, motion, etc., has been done with intricate care. I love the fact that Mr. DiJulio is who we met with in out initial meeting, and is who we continue to deal with ever since. Everything is very personalized and one-on-one. His secretary Barbara is amazing, and replies promptly to any questions or emails you send her way, and trust me I have sent a lot! This law firm brings knowledge and trust, two of the most important things to us when we were choosing an attorney for our current case.
We have dealt with multiple lawyers in the past mainly for real estate matters, this might have been the worst experience ever. He said one thing during our meetings and did another. He did not show up for the hearing he was hired for. He kept stating we need to do this and do that, later I found that all that wasn't necessary . He just did it for billing purposes. He billed for over 40 hours in a span of 3-4 business days and this was all done after he knew he was about to get fired.
After having no success in dealing directly with a boundary dispute with my property, I got representation with David Dijulio and Dijulio Law Group. David was very informative about real estate law and my case. The firm was very prompt in writing letters on my behalf about the encroachment and in getting the other party to respond. Within a matter of a couple of weeks from Dijulio Law representing me, a settlement was reached regarding the boundary dispute. I am glad I made this choice for legal representation. Dijulio Law Group delivered and their billing for the services rendered was very fair.
I have been dealing with David over ten years and have found him to be extremely knowledgeable in everything we did. I have always respected David's opinion and frankness when it comes to the law and court system. David seems to do his best to keep the cases out of the court system but if he needs to go to court he handles it well.
If I heeded an attorney I would automatically go to this law firm.
David Dijulio and his firm have worked with me on numerous occasions and his office handled our cases efficiently, timely and were very helpful resolving difficult situations. We are pleased with their work and recommend them in the event you have a non-paying tenant in these tough times for landlords.
