I am so glad that Joe was our attorney through a very difficult time. Let me start off by saying that Joe is a true Gentleman. The reason I say this is because as a gentleman he sees the person that he’s speaking with, not just the case. He listens and understands not just what you’re saying, but how you feel. His empathy is strong.
We had a difficult case where I was being sued by a person who was wronged, just not by me. Unfortunately, my name got attached to this conundrum and it was difficult to defend… Enter Joe. He came extremely highly-recommended by a dear friend who is also an attorney and would never have me work with anyone he felt could not properly represent me and ultimately bring this case to closure.
Joe kept a very close line of communication with me at all times even if it was to confirm that nothing has happened. While not all conversations gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling, he did explain exactly what was happening and next steps in the proceedings. I always felt comfortable that he was there representing me. It may me feel secure.
He is one of the finest attorney’s I have ever worked with and very enthusiastic about recommending him to anyone!

Joe represented me in a 3020-a case. Even though the cards were stacked against me, Joe remained positive throughout the whole ordeal. He was diligent, hard working and personable. The case involved many hearings and Joe was always prepared for what seemed like an avalanche of evidence against me. He countered with everything they came with and in the long run, he solidified a huge victory for me. I know for a fact that without his knowledge and expertise, I would have been forced to resign. I was put through misery for 24 months and I can say with conviction that Joe's tenacity paid off. It felt like my case would never end. I felt I was walking on egg shells for 2 years. I am happy that I retained Joe for his services and I am more than thrilled with the outcome. I highly recommend Joe to fight for you.

I was referred to Mr. Carbonaro by a very well known and regarded attorney I have a personal acquaintance with who had a conflict of interest with a pre-existing contractual relationship with the other party involved in my dispute.
Briefly, I was employed for approximately twenty years as a contractor with a company, who fell upon hard times. They initially extended the period between invoice submission and payment, then developed a trend of late payments. Next, I agreed to a reduction in compensation to assist the company as it struggled with emerging into a new media market. Late pays became no pays, and excuse upon excuse became insulation through employees or incommunicado as a modus operandi when past due payments were at issue. Hopeful to maintain the relationship which had extended approximately two decades, I was compassionate about the financial struggles claimed (learning of other contractors also being subjected to the same experiences) until such time that I had essentially worked without compensation for two years and was nearly spent out of my savings.
Mr. Carbonaro discussed my complaints, and provided a well-explained course of action and possible results during the pro bono consultation. I retained Mr. Carbonaro who allowed me a fixed fee if the issue was dealt with out of court.
It was, thanks to the diligence and persistence of Mr. Carbonaro as he faced the same evasions and delays I had described. After a "red-line" date was crossed, we communicated our intent to litigate, which lo and behold, resulted in a settlement. Of course, I allowed a reduced amount of about 25% to expedite the decision, and it still went to the last possible date, through no fault of Mr. Carbonaro.
Despite an unnecessary excess of communications with the offending party, Mr. Carbonaro held to his agreed fixed rate without complaint.
During the process, he was the voice of reason; yet, personable. He acknowledged my frustrations when I vented them, and maintained a steady stream of communication and near immediate response.
I would highly recommend Mr. Carbonaro based upon my direct experiences with him, dealing with a non-compliant and avoidant opposing party, with the right blend of directness, patience, and humanity.

Mr. Carbonaro consulted me on a case of mine.
I did my best to give him the relevant facts to it, but I am not a legal expert. Rather than pose insightful questions or comments on my case, he pointed out a common mistake in similar cases, that was not relevant in my case. I lost a few hours doing research to find this out.
When I asked for additional assurance that he would be able to handle my case competently, he replied defensively, including "Frankly I don’t like auditioning for cases. I’ve been doing this for 32 years and I don’t feel that I need to do that."
That made me feel disrespected. I do not recommend Mr. Carbonaro to others.

I hired him after I went through a tough time with another. He guided me through the process and was very clear and knowledgeable. He saved me time, effort, aggravation and money. He is the people's lawyer and will definitely look out for you. I highly recommend Mr Carbonaro

Joseph did a very good job for me with a claim I had to make on an employer. It was a delicate situation that Joe handled extremely professionally, with a keen understanding of labor law across multiple states. He was very persistent with the other party which ultimately led to a settlement I was satisfied with.
