BETTER (NOT) CALL SAUL! UNSCRUPULOUS ATTORNEYS & ACCIDENT VICTIMS

 

Has an attorney or ANYONE who is an agent for that attorney (paid by the attorney) contacted you within 30 days after you’ve had an accident, asking you if you need a lawyer?  If so, you are being approached unethically and the attorney is in violation of the rules that govern their conduct.  If this occurs, you should avoid retaining that attorney who has demonstrated a propensity to violate one of the most important rules governing attorney ethics.  Here is the relevant New York rule:

“DR 7-111 (22 NYCRR 1200.41-a) Communication After Incidents Involving Personal Injury or Wrongful Death

(a) In the event of an incident involving potential claims for personal injury or wrongful death, no unsolicited communication shall be made to an individual injured in the incident or to a family member or legal representative of such an individual, by a lawyer or law firm, or by any associate, agent, employee or other representative of a lawyer or law firm, seeking to represent the injured individual or legal representative thereof in potential litigation or in a proceeding arising out of the incident before the 30th day after the date of the incident, unless a filing must be made within 30 days of the incident as a legal prerequisite to the particular claim, in which case no unsolicited communication shall be made before the 15th day after the date of the incident.”

It is a good idea to contact your local Bar Association or go online (AVVO or  Super Lawyers) to find an attorney who can be trusted and will not break the rules!

  • "Lenox Avenue attorney Carmen Giordano is honest, experienced and determined to win. He and his staff consistently provide incredible customer service and a solid commitment to serving the Harlem community."  -Daniel “Dapper Dan” Day

Mr. Giordano quickly and efficiently collected pertinent information and was able to obtain a judgment that I considered most satisfactory. I have continued to ask Mr. Giordano to represent us in domestic and some international matters. I know that I can rely on his legal advice, and I deeply appreciate his personal warmth and genuineness whenever I contact him."  -Larry Dumain

  • "Recommend Carmen Giordano?” You cannot “recommend ” a friend, you have to experience the warmth the caring, the true concern to help you with your problem . It’s an “experience ” to to hear the sound advice and how to proceed with a dilemma. Yes, Carmen is a true “trailblazer”, a “template ” for other attorneys, in his total concern for his client/friend and how to help. He is also very well supported by his staff."  -Peter Grinenko

  • "Carmen is an OUTSTANDING Lawyer. This guy really gets things done! I never met a lawyer who put in so much effort and hardwork into their cases .

  • "I have been very happy with the work Carmen has led on my behalf. He is responsive and completely reliable and trustworthy. I know I can always depend on him to make sound recommendations on my behalf. He knows the law from A to Z and stays current on changes in the law whether it’s estate planning, employment issues or legal matters for same-sex couples. He has as comfortable style which helps clients be at ease and he always takes the time to explain concepts and implications so we can arrive at informed decisions together."  -Jack T

  • "Mr. Giordano is honest, trustworthy, efficient, thorough & caring. He is professional & personable. He truly cares about his clients. I highly recommend him."  -Kim

  • "Carmen Giordano is the embodiment of everything you would hope to find in a lawyer; he is trustworthy, sincere and knows his stuff. He comes highly recommended from such a vast cross-section of people–from mutual friends at the National Action Network, to clothing designers and music producers. Having experience in such a variety of areas makes Giordano one of the most well rounded attorneys I know. I wholeheartedly recommend him because unlike some in his industry, he really looks out for you. And from the times I have been in his office, he truly represents everyone from the falsely accused in Harlem, with nowhere to turn, to big shots, including top musicians and an occasional judge."  -Michelle

  • "I highly endorse this lawyer. He has great integrity and very broad experience in litigation. He has had great success in achieving excellent results for his clients; provides vigorous and reliable representation to each client; and has excellent judgment in assessing the merits of a claim."  -Margaret King, Attorney

  • "Carmen Giordano came to my rescue when I needed it most. I was a passenger in a taxi that crashed, leaving me badly injured and unable to work or take care of my 3 children. The taxi company tried to downplay my injuries and my losses. But Carmen fought for me every step of the way in this complicated case. He understood my lost wages, and understood the strain on my family (he’s a father too). He made sure the judge understood it, too. By the the time he concluded his eloquent opening argument, the defendants quickly settled. I remain extremely grateful to Mr. Giordano."  -Lauren
