In the law enforcement profession, we hope to never have to need an attorney, but one night at 11pm when I arrived at work, I found an envelope in my mailbox indicating that my agency was investigating me. The first phone call I made was to the Legal Defense Fund, and as luck would have it, Attorney Gambaccini was the lawyer handling the emergency calls to the law firm at that time.
From that night on, Attorney Gambaccini was extremely helpful in offering a different perspective on the situation I was being investigated for. I believe that with his input and guidance at each step of the way, he helped me navigate through waters that proved to be extremely challenging at the time.
It turned out that the first investigation that Attorney Gambaccini helped navigate me through was just the beginning. Over the course of the next few months, I would come to depend upon Attorney Gambaccini's feedback and knowledge many, many more times.
Through the numerous (and I mean numerous) phone calls that the two of us had, Attorney Gambaccini listened like a friend and offered help as I needed an attorney to do. A year has passed since having to utilize Attorney Gambaccini's expertise, and since successfully helping me with with my ordeal, I can say that I still keep in contact with Andy. I wouldn't hesitate in reaching out to him in his official capacity should I ever need legal assistance again in the future, but am happy that I get to keep in touch with him as a friend at this stage in my career.

Andy was intorduced to me by another member of his firm. He has helped me through some difficult situations, including a civil suit. The case was dismissed without further action. He went out of his way to keep me informed and placed my mind at ease on many occassions. He is always courteous, professional, and extremely helpful. He has taken the time to speak with me on other matters, including both job related and personal. In my position, I have the opportunity to work with numerous attorneys in the public and private sector. He is an outstanding lawyer and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I was first introduced to Andy through the MPA's legal defense fund. I needed the assistance of an attorney with a civil service employment issue. Andy and his associates at Reardon, Joyce and Akerson worked tirelessly towards my case. Andy kept me up to date with constant communication. His knowledge of the law, particularly of the civil service process, was impressive. Even though I was just one of his many clients, I felt a level of personalization between he and I that made the whole ordeal more manageable. I would strongly encourage anyone questioning whether or not they should sign up for the legal defense to do so. You never know what life will throw at you next and having the legal defense fund makes that uncertainty more manageable. I would have never guessed that one day I would have needed the assistance of the legal defense, but I am glad I singed up for it.
I would highly recommend Andrew Gambaccini and his colleagues at RJA for any of your legal needs. I know they will treat you will the same respect and dedication that they gave me.
