Every time I paid my bill in full he would say he forgot to charge me for something and bill me for more.. Mr Colella would have me meet with him... and then say he worked on my case 3...4...5.. days after that meeting@ $200. per hour $1600. a day.. But Mr Colella would only have the notes that he took during his meeting with me.... I ask him about that and he said "It's up here " "Pointing to his head..$ 42,000 later( which was paid in full) (and at this point my wife had not even been on the stand yet)Mr Colella stated his wife had recently left him and he couldn't concentrate ...He wanted to quit... stating .." I deserved better since he couldn't concentrate".. Truth is he drained me financially..Two weeks after Mr Colella quit me he was back in court right back to work..STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN.!!

I had this attorney represent me over 20 years ago when I got divorced. Recently, I applied for my percent of my ex-husband's military retirement, as per the divorce, only to find out he had NEVER filed the paperwork. I contacted him in early May 2011, trying to clarify the situation, and he was very rude and short with me on the phone. I sent a copy of my divorce to him as per his request, and then received a call from him a few weeks later. Again he was agitated and rude, insisting that I had to have other papers, and he would have to check the files in Bath,NY. About 2 weeks later, I received a letter from him stating I had to pay $1200.00 up front before he would file the form that I needed--refused to even speak with me about payments. ( I recently became disabled, and my monthly total income is less than $1500.00 a month.) I then contacted another attorney in the area and that attorney has agreed to file the paper for less than 1/2 of Mr Colella's price AND will also take payments.
