Great lawyer for real estate transaction
James represented me as seller's attorney and was very helpful throughout the entire process: He moved quite quickly in the background preparing all the necessary paperwork, dealt with presented contracts efficiently, fought with the buyer's counterpart reasonably but fiercely, and lastly he is very responsive to my many questions. Would definitely recommend and hire him again!

Helpful Information
Im currently experiencing problems with my landlord and the health department. James contacted me promptly with great legal advice that the average attorney would charge for. He was patient and allowed me to discuss in detail regarding my concerns. The typical attorney speaks over you and at times can come across as arrogant. Thank you James.

First Legal Challenge ever, Best lawyer for the task
I encountered a very stressful challenge with my landlord and struggled to find a lawyer who would take the case. Emails to other lawyers who were recommended by friends went unanswered. I was about to give up and give in to the unfair demands presented to me by my Landlord when I came across Mr. Caporrino’s information online. Right away, he gave me the courtesy and decency of replying to my initial email and suggested I come in for a consultation. I was very nervous as this was truly my first legal challenge ever. Despite the convoluted nature of my case, Mr. Caporrino took on the role. Over the span of 8 months, he worked diligently to ensure I received fair treatment and negotiated a settlement which resulted in the end result I desperately wanted. I could not thank him enough. Although I never want to experience draining court legalities ever again, I know I can trust Mr. Caporrino and his expertise should I ever need. I highly recommend him.

Would Recommend
We hired Mr Caporrino to represent us, the tenants, in a tenant-landlord dispute. He was very willing to discuss the case in detail over the phone and was able to put the landlord on the back foot- catching them out for having filed to comply with the law in a few instances. He gave us confidence in where we stood.

Real Estate Purchase
After receiving a number of referred attorneys from our realtor in relation to our real estate purchase, we decided to do our own research and found James. James was extremely responsive and looked out for our interests at each step (something we were afraid we would not get from the referred attorneys). A number of issues and delays occurred due to other parties and circumstances, but James efficiently managed all of them for us. James showed his extensive experience in real estate transactions and provided practical advice. We would highly recommend James for any real estate purchase.

Highly Recommend! Fantastic Attorney!
I am a Realtor at Coldwell Banker and have worked with many attorneys over the years, I can tell you James is one of the best. When my clients work with James, I am confident that he will represent them with the utmost professionalism and they will be taken care of. Though he has a staff, he is available and right on top of every issue that occurs and speaks to you first-hand. I highly recommend James!

Excellent Representation
Mr. Caporrino was our lawyer when my fiancé and I decided to sell our home. The sale was not straightforward by any means. There were a lot of hurdles we had to jump through - between easements, everchanging closing dates, title companies changing their policy from one day to another etc. James was extremely through and present through every hurdle. He always made sure to hop on a call and explain the situation himself which made every complication so much easier to deal with. In the end, his attention to detail and knowledge of real estate law helped us tremendously in finally closing the sale. I would recommend this attorney to anyone.

Personal attention with a great lawyer.
I consulted with Mr. Caporrino about a Notice of Motion for Judgement. I was required to respond in writing in the form of a certificate of affidavit in a tenant landlord case. I didn’t know what or how to reply via a certificate of affidavit and needed a lawyer to do this. I was also out of state when I received the motion and only had a few days to find a lawyer to prepare a response. My consultation with Mr. Caporrino was four days before the response was due. I needed to respond to the notice of motion within 2-3 days, at most. Mr. Caporrino said that would not be enough time for him to prepare a viable response. I was obligated to reply and felt like I was “up the creek without a paddle”. He suggested that I write a letter to the court asking for an adjournment. I asked how would I do that and he gave me clear step by step clear instructions on how to file and upload a letter on e-courts. That same day I prepared a letter. I emailed him back and forth with issues and questions and he answered all of them. He also told me to email my letter to him to review to make sure it would acceptable to the court before uploading it. With his guidance, I uploaded the letter to the court just in the nick of time. The judge granted my request for the adjournment. I then retained him to prepare the certification of affidavit. My case was a bit complex and he was very thorough, direct, no BS, methodical. He knew the details of my case after one sitting and was better prepared than other lawyers that I’ve hired. He was knowledgeable, proactive and prepared, unlike other lawyers I’ve hired who, when it came down to it, were not prepared and totally dropped the ball. Your case will not be passed along to an associate attorney who doesn’t have the experience that was expected and thought you were paying for by a law firm you hired. In today’s landlord-tenant courts, you can’t anticipate how a judge will rule, but you should have a lawyer to fight for your rights. The personalized attention you receive from Mr. Caporrino is paramount, in my opinion. I was very satisfied with his approach and how he handled my notice of motion. I wish I would have found him sooner. I absolutely recommend him and would not hesitate to hire him again.

Integrity and diligence with a human touch
James was my attorney in the year 2008. Over a decade I have known him. He concluded my recent contract this year despite the pandemic challenges the world is facing. In this fast-paced digital age, human sensitivities are lost due to a transaction-oriented mindset. James Caporrino has all that it takes to be sensitive to getting the job done with the human touch. I trust him and he will my first contact on all my legal matters.

Awesome Attorney
This man is awesome at what he does. He will give you honest straight forward answers as he listens to your legal matters. He provided me with more confidence than I already had about my legal issues. He takes notes and is a real professional at what he does. He is not an attorney that’s their to take your money. He is an attorney that’s there to handle and or advise you on your sensitive legal matters. Thank you Mr. Caporrino!!! I will be looking for you to represent my family and I on future legal matters.

Courteous, professional and sincere
I had a landlord/tenant issue and consulted with Mr. Caporrino for some information or to represent me, he gave me vital advice that assisted me with my case. He also directed me to agencies in my area that would be able to assist me without a cost. I wrote him multiple tedious emails and he took the time to respond to all.

Lawyer James Caporrino was ever ready to take our case to the time was very limited. He is patient ad detailed and welcoming.
My husband and I hired Lawyer James Caporrino and he was very helpful. Though we contacted him in a very limited time for our case for which we were being sued for wrongfully, he took the case and worked on it in a timely manner. At the end of the day everything went well to our favor more than we even expected. He knows his work and he is a very brilliant Lawyer in our opinion. Every step he took in handling our case was well explained to us in a timely manner and that kept us informed about our next step. This was very helpful. Hire Lawyer James Caporrino for your case and you will testify great about his great job done.

Affordable and Efficient. Landlord/Tenant Issue Resolved.
Mr. Caporrino was successful in resolving our dispute with our landlord (outside of court.) He was generous with his time both during our phone consult and during our in-person meeting. Mr. Caporrino responded quickly to our e-mails and immediately worked on addressing our issue with the landlord. We were relieved to have found a personable and trustworthy lawyer after interviewing several in the area. We highly recommend his services.
