Defamation Case
John was excellent in all categories and we got immediate satisfaction after all the initial work was done. However, his advise, based on his experience, was even more valuable. It is refreshing to know those victimized by libel/slander/defamation by unscrupulous competitors on the Internet have some recourse.

Excellent, efficient, cost effective
I had an issue with GoDaddy not releasing a domain name I owned in an old account. I tried for 2 years to resolve the issue with them to no avail. Some lawyers would not take my case since it was too small an issue. John and his team were happy to help, and with a single letter and the right contact he was able to have them respond immediately. Within days I had my domain name and the issue was resolved. Highly efficient, cost effective, and nice to work with. I highly recommend him!

Great Lawyer
John is the best attorney I have used in quite some time.. His willingness and unique view made us victorious in a twitter lawsuit brought by a corporation.

Effective and Trustworthy
Saved my company and our reputation. I was informed by several attorney's that the review left on a website would be nearly impossible to remove. John's brilliant expertise and direct action had my case finalized it a very short time. The review was removed and a letter of apology from the poster was more then I could have imagined. I highly recommend Mr. Di Giacomo and his firm.

A+ Attorney
I have had the pleasure of not only having John as an attorney on my own personal matter, but have had the pleasure of working with him professionally. He is an extremely intelligent, hard-working, understanding and top-level attorney. John has a strong business sense and offers practical solutions to the problems of his clients. Not only would I recommend him to others, but would seek him out should I need additional legal assistance in the future.

Domain Name/Trademark Dispute
As a mid size online business owner I have dealt with legal matters in various countries over the past 15 years. I must say that John's work was the most efficient and exceptional in my corporate history. John not only got us an excellent outcome in our legal matters but he did it with excellent online tracking tools and systems. The process was smooth, quick and very important to me, he was a great listener. John injected a perfect combination of our ideas and his to formulate a winning decision. I highly recommend his services. He is personable, responsive and knows this industry inside and out.

Domain Name Lawyer that clearly knows what he is doing
John is an extremely skilled attorney that is familiar with Internet law but what makes John unique is that he possesses the mind of a practical businessman. John's experience as an attorney familiar with domain name disputes becomes self-evident to anybody that is fortunate enough to find John as their attorney. From the beginning, John informed me on the strengths and weaknesses of my claim pursued through either the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) or were I to pursue my claim through a UDRP arbitration. The legal analysis that I received from John came with a candid assessment of the financial costs of a particular strategy and also a summary of the probability of my success. During the course of the litigation, John oftentimes offered alternative suggestions on how we might choose to proceed that showed me he has a very clear insight and deep level of familiarity with Internet law. Finally, and most importantly to me, I received an amazingly high level of client service and dedication that when it was necessary to speak with him on short notice and at late hours in the evening, John was always available. I cannot say enough good things about this particular attorney.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I first had the pleasure of meeting John at his prior firm, where his work struck me as excellent. When he struck out on his own, the work product (of course) continued on an upward trajectory. John's work is something to be proud of. His professionalism and ethics leave nothing to be desired. Well, one desire - that he has the opportunity to inspire other lawyers to his excellence in the tangible and intangible traits that make one a credit to the profession."
