We happened upon Attorney Lou Dagostine when doing some internet research to find a lawyer who specialized in New Home Construction issues. From the very first phone call (which was returned promptly from an initial, brief email inquiry) Lou took the time to listen to our concerns (really hear and understand what we were saying). We were educated on what our options might be and advised that his goal is to handle our situation without us incurring unreasonable costs. His primary goal was to try to avoid litigation if possible, while negotiating a fair and reasonable settlement. Lou certainly held true to his word. We paid a retainer fee and received monthly invoices detailing the time spent on our case. We were kept well informed of the progress he was making, without having to request updates. It was extremely rare that I would contact Lou as he would reach out to us when something additional was needed, but kept the communication and progress going with the Respondent. Lou’s confident, yet personable demeanor is carried forward during negotiations leading to results in an extremely reasonable time-frame. Our case was settled without litigation (although he made it quite clear to the opposing party that he would file the law suit tomorrow if need be) and within the amount of our initial paid retainer in less than 5 months. Considering we’d been trying to handle the situation ourselves for more than 2 years, this result is incredible.
We are so happy to have stumbled upon Attorney Dagostine and his firm. As each lawyer in the firm specializes in different areas we intend to contact Ciulia & Donofrio, LLP for all of our future needs, such as having a Will prepared, which is something that we have been avoiding, but with the comfort level that we have experienced working with Attorney Lou Dagostine of Ciulia & Donofrio we have no reservations whatsoever.
