Ms. Westlake was easy to talk to and was 100% professional! She answered all my questions and concerns. When I would call she would get back to me quickly! I was very impressed as to how she knowledgeable and efficient she was with my case. I would definitely refer my friends and family to call upon her!
Jean Marie handled my personal injury/medical malpractice case. Approximately 5 1/2 years ago I had a routine surgery which left me with a permanent injury and terrible pain. After 3 corrective surgeries and losing my business due to my inability to work, it was then, that I sought the counsel of the De Francisco law firm and Jean Marie Westlake.
Jean Marie was extremely responsive, and very honest. After being in the business world for 27 years, I have had the opportunity to work with many different attorneys. Never have I met anyone quite like Jean Marie.
Prior to the trial, Jean Marie handled everything. She studied my medical history and every aspect of my case. During the trial, she accurately depicted my experience and relayed my 4 to 5 year journey to the jury. When something did come up with the opposing counsel, she maneuvered expertly and efficiently and as a result, we succeeded. Jean Marie fought for me and my future in a fair, accurate and balanced way.
Although Jean Marie cannot restore my health or take away my pain, she did secure my future. I am now able to seek and afford the medical treatment that I need with no worries on how the bills will be paid.
With highest respect, I recommend Jean Marie for any personal injury or medical malpractice situation. I thank Jean Marie and the De Francisco Law firm team for standing with me during this most difficult time. They are truly the finest!
Jean Marie is a member of the well oiled machine at DeFrancisco & Falgiatano law firm. Jean Marie co-counseled on our lawsuit which was long running and complicated. What a prepared and planned ahead person. Our suit involved voluminous records, multiple plaintiffs, and Jean Marie never flinched. Whether it was a question over the phone, countering the appeals or finding that one piece of paperwork during testimony/examination, she never floundered. Unflappable. Jean Marie is well informed and if she doesn't have an answer, she gets one to you ASAP. A stickler for detail and a penchant to get it done, Jean Marie gives you a strong feeling of comfort that all is being handled. The team work between Charles Falgiatano & Jean Marie Westlake is like a well oiled machine, hopefully for many others one that lasts for a long time.
I would most certainly recommend Jean Marie! She always made sure that we were kept aware of everything through out the case, nothing was a surprise. She is very honest and loyal to her clients. Me and my husband worked with her closely for two years and I am glad that we got the chance because I felt very comfortable with her even through a whole trial process! I can not thank Jean Marie enough for her services! Also the best part is I still stay in touch because she was in our lives through the hardest of times and I will always be greatful. She is the lawyer that you need for all of your troubles, she was even great with my children.
