Review Joseph Rutigliano

  • Very happy

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Harry

    I had some tough times a few years ago and fell into serious credit card debt. Mr. Rutigliano was able to help me with several lawsuits from a company that bought my old debt. I was very happy with the way everything turned out and with the personal service at this firm.

    I have been using Mr. Rutigliano for several years. He has been an excellent attorney. He is professional, knowledgeable and thorough. He has always provided solid legal advice and is a trustworthy advocate to have representing you in whatever the legal matter requires.

    Mr. Rutigliano saved me over $2,000 in property taxes this year. I thought what he was telling me was too good to be true, but he did what he said he could. I couldn't be happier!

    My property assessment was lower this year with help from Joseph A Rutigliano. I had four different attorneys try unsuccessfully to do what this lawyer did for me. His office is professional and very welcoming. Very thankful.

    Attorney Rutigliano recently helped me with a first time home purchase. It was very easy to let him guide me thru a very long, dreadful process. As a first time home buyer I had no clue how hard it is to actually close on a home. I was very happy with my choice of attorney. Highly recommended.

    I was referred to this attorney by Hyatt Legal Plans to create a will, living will, and power of attorney. In the beginning, Joseph Rutigliano talked to me on the phone directly, and was very helpful, answering all of my questions in a kind and professional manner. However, right after I gave him my information to put in my will, that's where everything started to fall apart. He was very clumsy -- he put other people's names as my child's guardians, meaning he basically copy-pasted other people's information into my will, or used another person's will as a template to create mine. He was pretty responsive in sending me an amended/corrected will, but at the same time it seemed like all he cared about was creating another will for my wife to add her as his client. After all of the corrections were made on December 18, 2014, he emailed me saying he'd be on vacation for the holidays. It is now February 4, 2015, and he still hasn't replied to any of my emails. I called Hyatt Legal Plans today, who then called his office. Only then his assistant called me later today in an annoyed tone of voice to set up an appointment to notarize my will. She said office hours are 9AM to 5PM, so when I said I'd visit at 9AM, she then said "but I might not be here at 9." This was right after she told me their office hours. After that she said I needed to bring three strangers as witnesses to notarize my will, and that they couldn't help provide witnesses themselves. All of my other colleagues that used Hyatt Legal Plans were able to complete their wills and have them notarized at their lawyers' offices (who provided witnesses for them) within weeks! This is taking me two months (including 1.5 months when I got no responses from them at all), and I'm still stuck in a position where I have to ask three of my friends to take a half day at work just to get my will notarized because obviously their one-person office is closed on the weekends. I definitely do not recommend Joseph Rutigliano. I really regret doing business with them.

    Joseph A Rutigliano’s response: “I try my best to take client suggestions and criticism seriously. That being said, this review is spiteful and silly. This particular client took great offense to the fact that I had a vacation scheduled and was not available at his convenience. I suggested he have a notary witness his signature if he needed it signed right away then never heard from him again until months later. The law requires three witnesses to a will. Those witnesses cannot be people who take under the will for obvious reasons. That is the law, they are not my rules. They don’t have to be strangers (like I said, spiteful and silly) but they must be people you are not receiving anything under the will. I believe my positive reviews speak well for my office.”

    You can always count on Joe. He takes time to explain everything carefully and make you feel comfortable no matter what the situation. You are comfortable because you know that Joe works arduously to present you with a favorable outcome. He is patient, persistent, aggressive, articulate and a fabulous writer. Joe gets the job done and he is pleasant to work with as well!

  • Joe Rutigliano-honest, hard-working attorney

    Joe has handled various legal work for me over the years, including but not limited to, home closings, landlord- tenant, and tax appeals. His advice has been dead on, and I am very satisfied with his professionalism and promptness. My closing and tax appeal were completely painless. After handing off all pertinent information, I just sat back and Joe handled everything. His guidance on my landlord/tenant situation has put my mind at ease, and helped the situation tremendously.

    Joseph is an extremely competent, thorough, and honest attorney. My experience with Joe is that he will always does whatever it takes to do it right for his client. Joe has handled several closings for me, one of which took more time and effort than what would normally be expected. But Joe took the time and effort to work through all issues in order to get the deal done.
