Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Salvatore Joseph Sicuso

    I have known Jane-Robin since I started practicing over 20 years ago. I used to oppose her in many cases when I represented strictly insurance companies and industry. Back then I knew I would have to be on my "A" game, at all times. She is bright, knowledgeable, and an excellent litigator. That said, she knew when to settle a file and a fair number. I am sure that she served her clients well over all of these year. Now, we stand side by side to help the injured and the wronged. I happily endorse this lawyer, as she has all that you would expect from a great advocate. Knowledge, skill, ethics and expertise.
