Great Attorney, Great Communicator
I was nervous about the process of having a lawsuit. From the first phone call all of my concerns were eased. My Attorney Charles was extremely responsive and kept me updated throughout the entire process. Even though I had A LOT of questions he took his time and made sure I was satisfied with everything every step of the way. I would highly recommend Karpf,Karpf & Cerutti. (Especially Charles)

Professional and personable
I contacted and consulted with William Sipio about a potential case against my employer, and he was very confident that he could make something out of my claims. I hired him and proceeded with the lawsuit process. Every step along the way Mr. Sipio was very forthcoming, honest and always had my best interest in mind. He contacted me every time a crucial step was made in my case, and he was always available when I contacted him. His office staff are also very friendly and attentive, and we're always able to answer my questions. This was the first time I ever had to work with a lawyer in my life, but the process was smooth and not as time consuming as I thought it would be thanks to this firm. Would definitely recommend.

W. Charles Sipio
I needed an attorney for a personal legal matter. I was referred to Mr. Sipio. From our first conversation to the day of settlement(in my favor), I knew I was in good hands. Charles is a great listener and he doggedly pursued the facts involving my case. His written communication is some of the best I have seen. Charles has a great command of the law and associated precedence. I highly recommend.

Surefire Representation
Mr. Sipio tactfully negotiated my unemployment settlement. As a result of his expertise and diligence, I saved several thousand dollars. He was consistently available to address my questions and concerns regarding the case. I was reassured by his prompt, knowledgeable responses. I would highly recommend Mr . Sipio's services.

Charlie represented me in a matter in Pennsylvania. He is a competent legal professional that demonstrates excellent organizational and analytical skills. He can comprehend complex matters and has persuasive communication skills. However, most importantly, Charlie puts the needs of his clients first. He understood my concerns and reassured me with transparent updates throughout the case. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Reliable, knowledgeable, and professional
As a professional myself, I truly appreciate Charles expertise and thoroughness as an attorney. I had to change attorneys and it wasn’t a good feeling knowing that I had to find someone better to take over, but thankfully Charles made it such much easier to work with an attorney. I wish we had worked together from day one and I highly recommend his services.

Contract Drafting and Negotiation
Mr. Sipio did an outstanding job drafting and negotiating a lease for me. He was extremely knowledgeable about contracts and how they play out in litigation, thus making him even more qualified to draft a beneficial one. He was timely, easy to talk to, comprehensive and very understanding. During the negotiation process of the lease his advice was prudent, well thought out and had good foresight. He was able to see the bigger picture and give better advice because of it. There were two other lawyers involved with the negotiation (for the other parties) and he had a discernible ability to read the situation, as well as the other attorneys to produce a most ideal outcome. I would highly recommend Mr. Sipio to anyone seeking an attorney. He is well versed in many areas of law and seems to be constantly striving to further improve his knowledge base and skills--a quality that I greatly admire in any professional. From our experience working together I can confidently say that I trust him and his advice implicitly. To that end, I would not hesitate to contact him in the future should I require any legal advice/services, no matter how large or small the issue. My previous experiences with attorneys have left much to be desired but now I am pleased to say that I have found my attorney for life!

Fearless, Relentless, Aggressive..the Pit Bull of attorneys:)
Charles Sipio, of Kolman Ely and Assoc, has represented me over the past 2 yrs in a wage discrimination case against the city of Philadelphia. He won!! He is relentless!! He knows how to win and makes sure his clients are fully satisfied. He is always available to answer any questions day or night. He's takes no prisoners. Straight to the jugular. He is definitely the PIT BULL of attorneys. I highly recommend Charles Sipio for all employment discrimination cases. If you want to win your case, have Charles Sipio and his firm represent YOU...
