Passionate and Driven
I was represented by Mrs. Carminati for a protection order and with her support, long hours, and hard work, I was granted a permanent restraining order which included my kids. Her safety for my children was important and she guided me every step of the way. I would highly recommend Mrs. Carminati to anyone who needs a voice in court. She is very professional and straight forward as well as kind and caring.

Tough and smart!
I had a nuisance suit filed against me that didn't make any sense to anyone. The opposing lawyers and his client were bullies and mishandled and mistreated me, and then acted unprofessionally with Guigi by with holding financial disclosure information, and misrepresenting income on a sworn financial statement. Guigi advised me to do the right thing on my/our behalf for the case despite the intimidation tactics. She is amazing how smart she is and how determined she is to do what's in the best interests of her clients. Guigi is a mother of four young children, she travels a lot, is busy with several cases at a time in different cities. I really don't know how she does it! I totally admire and respect her, and would recommend her as a litigator to anyone who wants to come out on top!

What a pleasure to work with
Giugi is wonderful to work with. She delivered drafts of the contracts well ahead of schedule and our follow up call was smooth and collaborative. I really appreciate that she takes the time to educate and turns things around really quickly. I look forward to working with her again.

Any plaintiff is in good hands with Ms. Carminati. She is an advocate both inside and outside of the courtroom for civil rights and the voices of the down-trodden."
