Attorney Jonathon Zitney Rancho Cucamonga California Malpractice Firm Lost

Had a bad experience and then I come to find out I am not the only one. I wish I would have saw these reviews before hiring this lousy firm with their bad advise and rude ways. Attorney Zitney was the absolute worst attorney I have ever, ever dealt with. While I don't mean to be prejudice but there seemed to be a handicap of some kind like he was "slow" and could not speak confidently. Very reclusive and isolated and not very professional. Extremely passive and order taker for the firm he assists for and offered little to any value. I found that there were excessive hours billed by the firm for the work performed. I reported Mr. Zitney and the Pittullo, Barker & Associates to the Calfornia State Bar Association and my local attorney organization. A big fat waste of money.

ATTORNEY P. TIMOTHY PITTULLO Mr. Pittullo: So I'm asking for a brief continuance to find another attorney who can more adequately than me represent her. I can't do it, I'm not capable.

THIS ATTORNEY CHARGES $500 AN HOUR AND STATES ON OFFICIAL COURT TRANSCRIPT IN ORANGE COUNTY CALIFORNIA STATING " I CAN'T DO IT I AM NOT CAPABLE" TO A FAMILY LAW JUDGE IN ORANGE COUNTY CALIFORNIA. A MALPRACTICE CASE WAS FILED Mr. Pittullo: I'd requested to have a continuance so that my client can get another attorney. I cannot effectively represent her at this point. The Court: Your request is denied. We are in the middle of a hearing at 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon, cross-examination of the respondent. At pg. 67, Ins. 13 - 15 of the transcript Mr. Pittullo explains that he is incompetent: Mr. Pittullo: So I'm asking for a brief continuance to find another attorney who can more adequately than me represent her. I can't do it, I'm not capable.

Don't be surprised when people call you a dirtbag for being a dirtbag. This victim has every right to call these guys sleezebags because they are.

This happens over and over again and ALL attorneys in California are dishonest dirtbags who do nothing but collect big rewards and the judges do their part in making sure that they make idiotic decisions that make no sense so that the litigants have to "pay" their good ole boy buddies a nice chunk of change before they make their decisions. It's no secret who this Pitullo guy is, he does have a rep already.

Pittullo is a lazy ***. He sees clients to take retainer then one if his secretary/paralegals does the work.

He doesn't even a sign the deed half the time, they do. He's always late to meetings, late to court and arrogant with everyone.

His wife Barker is a real piece of work too. Lousy attorneys and should be disbarred.

#1109066

Tim Pittullo is one of the worst attorney's in Rancho and his sidekick Jonathon Zitney is right behind him. Married at the hip in dirty deeds. A plague to society.

#914787

You can tell how obsessed this reviewer is of Pitullo so much so that he/she appears to keep track of him. In fact, don't be surprised if he/she has written multiple reviews of him pretending to be different people with different stories and in different websites. Get a life!

Awful Attorney

I hired the Law firm of Pittullo and Barker and had a really bad experience. I do not recommend them. They were always distracted with other things and Ms. Barker could not remember my case details and kept fumbling through her memory. The other guy in the firm Mr. Pittullo his her husband and he got on the phone with me a few times and gave cookie cutter answers that didn't even seem to relate to my case but I think he thought I was someone else. I went to another law firm to have my issues resolved. I cannot recommend this firm.

It is my opinion that Tim Pittullo is one of the worst family law attorney's in california. With all his malpractice cases and financial issues it is a wonder he still is in business. Jonathan Zitney is an attorney that works with Tim and he is awful.

Agree. The guy is shady.

He is always involved in lawsuits against clients and his partners and former partners. He will stop at nothing to destroy people and is self-destructive with his substance abuse issues.

#1499019

The worst divorce attorney in the history of california divorce attorney's!

#1107263

This was the WORST legal experience I ever had. *** doesn't begin to describe Pittullo's work.

#962700

Pittullo had four malpractice cases going on the same time. He lost them all.

In one suit he was found negligent for approximately $320,000. He no longer carries insurance. He will lie his way though any court, fabricate and twist all facts. He lies to judges and has no ethics when it comes to conducting himself with other attorney's.

His office has high turnover and poor quality staff with very bad reputations. There is only one inexperienced, unprofessional junior attorney that works with him and he he has a very, very bad reputation across the county and is known as a puppet for Pittullo. The firm has no credibility or respect by other attorney's. They back-date letters to send to other attorney's.

The do illegal spoof calling. They will lie in court. How they conduct themselves is like scrappy pawn shop owners selling whatever they can for money.

Money is the only thing they care about because they are full of debt and have severe financial issues. Consumers should be aware they don't have your best interest at heart.

#960578

I had a very bad experience with Attorney Pittullo and the staff. i would never hire him again.

Consumers are correct he is a bad attorney. What attorney do you know has been arrested repeatedly and has had 4 malpractice cases over 18 months? If an attorney is good they don't get sued.

It is pretty clear that the repeated issues are the sole responsibility of Mr. Pittullo himself.

Agree. This firm is the worst.

Jon Zitney and Tim Pittullo are like twins. One can't do anything without the other and Tim taught Jonathon Zitney everything he knows which no doubt will continue to haunt clients for years to come.

#1109061

Tim Pittullo and Jonathon Zitney are two of the worst attorney's in Rancho Cucamonga.

#1107266

Guy should retire he is so bad. Damaging workmanship.

#956783

Everyone knows Attorney Timothy Pittullo has issues with multiple malpractice cases, not paying his rent and having to go into foreclosure, being arrested for being under the influence, pushing a female attorney, fist fights with other attorney's and a slew of serious other issues. The only way to stop the continual preying on innocent people by this guy is to let people know the side of him that he keeps hidden. If people know they would make better choices.

#878496

Let's see. We should hire an attorney who has a police record and doesn't pay his bank loan.

And let me get this right, we should pay him $500+ dollars an hour to give us advice on family law when he is divorced, can't manage his finances and takes monies without paying his loans, took small business association government money but didn't pay it back and defaulted on the US citizens and has issues with his peers.

PT Barnum step right up to this circus clown.

Anyone notice that his name is PT Pittullo?

Consumers need to wake up.

Mr. Pittullo and his sidekick Mr.

Zitney are one of the worst legal teams out. Their work was really over-priced and of poor quality.

#963621

4 malpractices cases in recent years. 2 arrests.

1 physically abused/pushed/laid hands on a female attorney in court. $439,000 paid out to a victim of a negligence suit for failing to protect a minor. Millions in over-billing clients.

$2 million in foreclosure debt. Countless number of victims he abuses verbally, physically, financially and emotionally.

#870697

This guy has a bad reputation far and wide. How the California State Bar hasn't nailed him yet is a mystery.

Just a matter of time as there is a long list of complaints. I knew someone that worked for him that they said there was always constant trouble with clients, malpractice suits against him - several at a time even. There were big time financial issues.

One of the junior attorney guys was always in court trying to get Pittullo off for being arrested, it was something like being drunk in public or under the influence and then there are all the rumors about him fighting with other attorneys. He's a mess.

#859458

wow! that's a big mistake and found guilty of negligence and working out a settlement shows ya they know they are guilty and didn't do their job and meet the standard of care for their clients.

This guy has something like 4 additional malpractice cases against him for the last several years plus foreclosure on his property, appointment of a receiver by Rabobank and arrested for being under the influence.

All public record. I heard some guys talkin that he is being investigated by the California State Bar.

Over-billed. Money-Hungry. Shoddy Work Quality. Public Arrest Record.

Thank goodness someone is finally suing this guy. I hired him and fired him as he continually over-billed me and was nasty. He was late to court and did not prepare my case like he should have. He does not like being questioned and thinks he is the "king of the hill". He has a very bad reputation throughout town and beyond. He has money issues and had to have a receiver assigned to a building he owned that went into foreclosure as he was not making the payments. He also had issues with being arrested.

Agree.He is always involved in lawsuits against clients and his partners and former partners. He will stop at nothing to destroy people and is self-destructive with his substance abuse issues.

His current/past law partners at Schwartzberg & Luther APC are involved in a lawsuit with him and Jonathan Zitney. His previous partners had nothing but issues with him

#1145712

Beware this attorney is now working out of Schwartzberg & Luther APC. Bad reviews, bad service, unethical and slimy.

#1107268

Reported P. Tim Pittullo and J. Zitney to the California State Bar formal complaint division.

#992148

Many, many victims of P. Timothy Pittullo.

His legacy is one of creating pain and suffering and taking excessive money. How wonderful to reflect on the end of a career knowing all that you have in your life is build on the back of victims and that non of your peers respect you and you have been arrested and have had numerous legal malpractice cases.

What a disgrace upon humanity. Loser.

#991838

Reported him to the California State Bar and Attorney General Office.

#963616

I had a similar issue. Reported him to the California State Bar.

They told me they are keeping a long list of complaints. They have had attorney's, clients, past employees and court employees coming forward for years with complaints.

It is only a matter of time. There are also numerous consumer watchdog groups monitoring him and the firm.

#956786

This guy is known throughout California as having a terrible reputation. He's slippery and knows how to manipulate the system and is not afraid to twist the law, his words or evidence just enough so that he gets what he wants.

He has no issue with crossing the lines repeatedly and gets away with it because no one tracks all his inconsistencies. He lies. He tells his clients to lie. He is sloppy with his work and does as little possible to get by.

He does not prepare for court, hearings or meetings. He does not remember details of cases as he is juggling too many and does not care. He makes everything more difficult and painful. He drinks and takes medications and is out of touch with social skills.

He is NOT a successful attorney and is disrespected by hundreds of peers. He is laughed at, mocked and everyone that works for him or associates themselves with him is mocked as a bottom feeder attorney. He keeps a young attorney working for him because the guy can't get a job anywhere else due to his reputation.

He's a bottom feeder of the attorney world and so is everyone he is associated with. Disgusting that anyone would lead their life so out of integrity.

#927402

Very helpful. Thank you.

#900742

This guy has a bad reputation far and wide. He is one of the worst attorney's out there with multiple malpractice cases.

His financial issues are known throughout Rancho Cucamonga, he treats clients and other attorney's poorly.

He pushed a female attorney and he generally does not like women and has a drinking issue. His law firm partners left him within a short period of time.
