Great lawyer and an amazing human being
I was very familiar with the firm's name, Buttafuoco and Associates having heard of them for over 20+ years on New York Radio but didn't have need of the services until my wife's mom needed legal representation. Unfortunately, she fell and broke her hip in the nursing home she was living in a few years back and even more unfortunate, it was an accident that really could have been avoided, sparing her surgery, months of pain and a really long recovery process. We weren't surprise when the nursing home and their attorneys wanted to settle quickly and I'm glad we didn't give in. Buttafuoco and Associates advised us not to accept their offer and they fought hard and got mom and much better financial settlement. Big thanks to Dan Buttafuoco and his hard working team of counselors, you guys are super lawyers and even better family to us.

Personal Injury
At first got a contact right away from this lawyer. Then it seems like the lawyer was just too busy and only respond through text. I was injured in a rear end accident and was told after signing an agreement that someone would call from Colorado that he partnership with. I already contacted another lawyer and I went for Dan because he said he would and could help. I was being honest about saying I wish he didn't waste one week clearly because I didn't have enough to cover money for insurance when it wasn't about money and just need help with the injuries. Anyways. After being clear about my email, was told I was being "nasty" when I never used cuss words and only being honest just because I said "stop wasting my time" and there was so many gap conversation everytime I ask questions and wasn't given the answer after asking it a few times. I was told he only deal with "big cases all over the state" I'm a believer, I don't tolerate such name calls and mockery.

Response from Daniel Buttafuoco April 10, 2021
I tried to help this young lady free of charge. I did some investigation and contacted the insurance company. When I discovered there was insufficient insurance I told her I could not help her. She then accused me of "wasting her time" when it was actually my time that was wasted (I didn't even mind). I tried to explain this but she got angry with me. I am sorry we were unable to help you with your situation and wish you the best.
