My custody case sadly went on for over two years due to four changes Of judges which was completely out of his control. During that time the staff was nothing but amazing and supportive… They are completely approachable and friendly. Mr. Castrovinci is professional, knowledgeable, concerned and to me the most wonderful attorney there is. Yes it's expensive, but that's how it goes unfortunately. If I had to do it all over again hands-down this is the only attorney I would use, I had complete faith in him and I am beyond happy with the results. I highly highly recommend him!

I have used this firm for the past 4 years. It started out with all these promises of taking care of me with my divorce. When they found out how much money i made, they dragged my divorce case on for 3 1/2 years. It was a nightmare. They actually pushed the divorce to go to trial, without settling, to charge even more money. My ex wife was trying to get more than she was entitled to, so that caused major problems as well, but my own attorney didn't care about me, only how much he could get out of me. The divorce finally ended and then i had a custody dispute, and a child support dispute once i gained custody of my son. They actually charged me another $5000.00 for a custody dispute that never happened. My ex signed off on the custody papers before going to court at all and the firm took all of the money and gave some lame excuse about not giving me any refund. I'm currently taking them to small claims court. Stay away from these scammers. They don't call you back in a timely manner. It took me 2 weeks to get a call from a girl in the office, after i said it was an emergency. Phil hasn't called me back in 10 months after giving them over $70,000.00. Divorce is hard enough, don't ever call these people.

If there was less than one star, I would give it. Sadly, Phil is not an attorney I would recommend. I hired him to get through a rather acrimonious divorce and after hours of billed consultations he suggested I file order of protections and call the police. This only escalated the situation and of course added to the times I needed to speak to them. Upon further investigation, I learned there are several concerns associated with this firm including some very serious accusations. With a simple google search, one can find out quite a lot about the people Phil represents and the cases he has had personally. Besides, billing for a lot of money, and for every little thing, the extra advice Phil offers will cost you a lot more time, money and issues with your ex that are just not necessary. Be careful of calling too much and be careful of advice that just doesn't sound peaceful.
