Five stars are not enough!
Carlo and his staff - Ashley and Rebekah - are absolutely outstanding! Carlo is one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Carlo, Ashley, and Rebekah have been truly kind, respectful, helpful, and easy to work with throughout the whole process. They actually managed to make a difficult situation enjoyable! I knew I had stumbled into something special right from the beginning when I was able to have a consultation with Carlo within hours of my email through their website one evening. I was very frustrated with the situation I was in before reaching out to him, but Carlo took the time to answer all my questions and concerns and make me feel a whole lot better. Carlo was also extremely accommodating and willing to work with me through some hiccups in my case. Carlo and his staff were easily reachable, very approachable and very down to earth. In addition to this not being my first trip down the bankruptcy road, I also consulted with a few other lawyers and had even hired someone else before reaching out to Carlo but his process was far superior to all the others' which was why I chose to move forward with him... it made a huge difference in the end and the kindness of Carlo and his staff make me extra glad I switched! Carlo, Ashley, and Rebekah... I can't thank you enough for everything you've done for me so far! I look forward to continuing the process with you on my side.

ATTORNEY CARLO SABATINI
On a scale of 1 to 5 and 5 being the highest score, in my opinion, Attorney Carlo Sabatini and his firm members earn a 5 plus rating. During my adult life, I have worked with many lawyers for business and personal matters and I can honestly say that Carlo has outstandingly impressed me beyond all those other lawyers. My initial meeting with him convinced me that I had made the right choice in choosing Carlo for my legal matter. He is extremely knowledgeable with the law, he is down to earth in explaining it in plain English, and he genuinely shows his compassion for the client. He does NOT sugar coat advice to the client or give any falsehood concerning their case, but he does give clear and concise advice and instructions all within the boundaries of the law as the process proceeds forward. Additionally, I can attest, that Carlo or his firm members WILL return your calls and emails in an acceptable time frame. I emphatically recommend without any hesitation, Attorney Carlo Sabatini and his firm for anyone that needs their professional and highly experienced services.

So thankful to have found him!
I had been considering bankruptcy but I didn't really know where to start or if I was even eligible for bankruptcy protection. I was nervous even to call to schedule a consultation but Carlo and his staff were amazing to deal with. He explained everything to me and immediately put me at ease with his confidence and obvious expertise in this area. Carlo and his staff made a difficult and embarrassing situation much easier to deal with thanks to their patience and open lines of communication. Every step of the process was explained to me and they were in constant contact to ensure that things went as smoothly as possible. I highly recommend him and am grateful for his knowledge and compassion.

Thorough, Respectful, and Helpful
After an unexpected job loss, followed by major health issues, my husband and I faced the very devastating reality of Chapter 13 bankruptcy. We were overwhelmed and embarrassed but thankfully we found Carlo Sabatini to lead the way. Atty. Sabatini spent countless hours with us individually and behind the scenes on our case to be sure that everything progressed smoothly, even when our bankruptcy proved to be more involved than we initially expected. Accepting that you need help, filing and the entire process can be scary and overwhelming. It's critical to have an experienced attorney on your side. We are grateful that we found that in Carlo Sabatini.

Carlo was very knowledgeable in preparing several cases against unfair debt collection practices. After securing funds on my behalf each time, he and his staff have always been available for any follow-up assistance I required. I highly recommend him for his expertise and dedication to completing each case in a timely manner.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Mr Sabatini was very helpful regarding my case. His knowledge of the Bankruptcy laws were very impressive. He and his staff were very helpful and guided me through all the paperwork that was needed to file. Along with the credit counseling course needed by law to file, I learned many things in regard to how to handle collection agencies and how the whole process works.

Carlo helped me more then words can dicribe When I first met him I thought that he was cocky, but in fact it was confidence. His brutal honesty scared me to the point of listening to him. He helped me save my home and in fact may have saved my life. I was so consumed in my debt I let depression in. Now I have my home and my life and slowly rebuilding my credit. I would recommend Carlo and his team . Thank you for everything.

Dedicated and honest
Carlo was very friendly and easy to work with. He explained everything to me about my case in ways that I could understand and answered questions honestly. Carlo was dedicated to my case and even went out of his way to reach out to me after his office hours. Carlo and the staff at his office are very personable and make the often intimidating act of going to see an attorney a comfortable experience. I would recommend Carlo to any of my family and friends.

Thank you to you and your team for your professionalism
Bankruptcy is never something you want to do, but sometimes circumstances leave you with no other option. Carlo and his team were there with us and for us every step of the way offering guidance and making the process smoother than we'd ever have thought. The communication and assistance received from everyone at his office was exemplary. We could not have asked for better care. They made us feel comfortable with what we had to do and questions were always addressed immediately. We cannot thank Carlo Sabatini and his team enough for the best experience possible even when it was not an experience we wanted to have. They are top notch and we do not hesitate for a minute to recommend them to anyone needing the services they provide.

Simply the Best in NEPA
I came to Carlo distraught, in debt and needed advice on my options. He guided me on what was right for myself and my family. He and his staff were professional, discreet, thorough and respectful. Above all he made me feel at ease during an extremely stressful time in my life. All terms and specifics were explained in detail and if I had any questions they were always answered quickly. I am extremely happy that I hired Carlo and his firm and recommend him to anyone who needs needs a debt/bankruptcy lawyer.

Thank you!
Attorney Sabatini and his staff were fantastic. Bankruptcy is a term that I never expected to have to personally use. It was terrifying to be honest. I work in a law firm myself, but this was also embarrassing and a long process with creditors calling our phones of the hook and letters constantly coming. From our first consult, we knew exactly what to do, the process, the time frame and the outcome. There was not one email or phone call unanswered. Thank you Attorney Sabatini and staff for making a very stressful situation be one of great relief in the end.

Review of Carlo Sabatini
In searching for an attorney to advise me on my legal situation, (potenial bankruptcy), I selected Attorney Sabatini out of the phone book, not knowing anything about his background or skills. As we proceeded through my case, I realized early on that this was an excellent choice. From the beginning, Attorney Sabatini prepared a plan and course of action to steer my case to a successful conclusion. He made sure all deadlines were met an all paper work was filed on time. He was always reponsive to my questions and concerns. His advice and overall knowledge of his legal specialization allowed me to achieve and end result to my case that was most favorable. I would highly recommend Attorney Sabatini to anyone that may be in a similar situation that I was.

Review for Carlo Sabatini
Carlo is a wonderful, strong, and dedicated lawyer. Upon reaching out to Carlo and his team about my case, I found out that the case itself had a larger appearance than just being annoying. The case was something that was a daily annoyance to me and I thought that there was nothing that I could do to stop it except to ignore it. Carlo and his team quickly instructed me that I did have a case and that there was something that I could do about the situation. He and his team helped me understand the case and what exactly was going on. They explained everything in detail and answered any questions that arose. They explained the terms, the situations, and even the people involved. Carlo always kept me posted and included in the daily activities of the case, even when the details or new developments seemed insignificant – I always knew what was happening. Carol never made a decision without first contacting me and discussing the pros and cons of the decision. He made himself available to me at all hours of the week. Since I had a strange work schedule it was hard to be available between normal office hours. He would make himself available after office hours and even on weekends to accommodate me. It was the same way with phone calls – whenever I was free to call, he made himself available. He was diligent in his research, finding out every little detail about those involved in my case. He knew who I was up against and my odds against them every step of the way. He kept me calm and collected during the whole litigation process. I found that Carlo and his team were there for me whenever I needed their assistance, just like a good friend. Carlo Sabatini is a wonderful lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer with his specialties. If I ever have an unfortunate situation arise that I need a lawyer again in the future, there is no doubt in my mind that the lawyer will be Carlo Sabatini. I am very thankful for all of his help to end my case on a positive note.
