When the newspaper where I was employed and I were frivolously sued for libel, Mr. Scoccimaro worked tirelessly to defend both myself and my employer against a $10,000,000.00 lawsuit.
Mr. Scoccimaro proved the events reported in the news article were in fact, not libelous at all, and that one of the persons mentioned in the article was indeed a public figure and had appeared on local news stations numerous times as an official representative of the city.
During this time, I was extremely grateful that he was on our side in this matter. After seeing him in action, I remember thinking, "Thank goodness he's with us and not against us."
The case was dismissed. Mr. Scoccimaro not only defended us, but defended the First Amendment in the process.
My publisher selected Mr. Scoccimaro as a defense attorney in this matter because we knew his reputation as a fierce advocate would be our best chance at dismissal of the lawsuit. We knew of his solid belief in the First Amendment and our right to free speech. We reported on many of the cases in which he defended his clients, both civil and criminal, and so we also knew how tough he could be.
Since that time, Mr. Scoccimaro has been appointed to serve as Associate Judge for the Municipal Court of Albany, Georgia. While he no longer defends criminal cases, he still represents his clients with the same amount of enthusiasm - as if their very lives depend upon it.
A lot of lawyers say, "We represent the little guy." Ralph Scoccimaro doesn't just represent the little guy, he FIGHTS for the little guy.
When in search for the BEST look no further, Ralph Scoccimaro has all the qualities needed to help you win your case. Mr. Ralph Scoccimaro worked very diligently to resolve my case. I was involved in an auto accident and sustained many life long injuries that greatly effected my line of work. Due to the extent of my injuries I was out of work for a long period of time. I realized I had to do something to recover the money i was losing by not working as well as the money I would continue to lose in the future. Not knowing who to go to for help a friend recommended Mr. Scoccimaro to me. After meeting with him and his staff I knew I had made the right choice. I had no worries about what was going on with my case because he kept me informed. He is a man of high integrity and he is very knowledgeable. He won my case and I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney.
I am a CPA, and have worked with many attorneys in the past. I had a very complex and difficult case against a large wealthy corporation. Mr. Scoccimaro had to fight their large national law firm that was being paid by the hour to harass and defeat me. I could never have afforded to pay by the hour for this level of representation. He took my case on a contingency fee basis, so I only owed legal fees if he was successful. In the end, he won a confidential settlement for me for which I was VERY pleased. I not only would use Mr. Scoccimaro again, I would highly recommend him.
