2 cases. Great results.
Joe Marasco leads a fantastic team of PI attorneys. I have had two auto accidents (one quite serious, neither my fault), and this firm has made recovery from injuries possible for me. The settlement was large enough to cover my related medical care for the rest of my life. I highly recommend this firm.

Great Job
I could not have done it by myself. Only snafu was when I was in rehab and first filing was dismissed because no one showed for original hearing. That was really a blessing on disguise. Great final chapter.

Good results
I worked with one of the lawyers in Mr Maraco's office. The people that I dealt with in this office were professional and helpful. I had a disabilities case and they gathered the information from my doctors that was needed for my case to be properly judged. From my understanding, disability judges are looking for specific things that doctors may or may not know to give. Having a lawyer to ask the right questions streamlines the process.

Attentive to my case and reliable.
When Marasco & Nesselbush took on my case, they were very thorough. Gained all the information needed and were very prompt with calls. If I had a question, they were ready to answer. They were reliable, friendly and paid attention to detail. My case was wrapped up much earlier than expected. Would recommend them to anyone I know.

Attorney Review
I hired Marasco & Nesselbush to represent me through the disability process. My attorney was Amanda Briggs. She was professional, caring, attentive and well prepared. It was a long process, Amanda was always available to answer my questions and never made me feel as if l was just another client. Everyone at Marasco & Nesselbush were supportive and very knowledgeable about disability law and what the process would entail. I want to thank everyone there, with a special thank you to Amanda. She is a wonderful lawyer and advocate.

Disability/Social Security case
My lawyer is Jennifer. She has been compassionate, positive and very helpful from the start. She always kept abreast of the case at all times. She made me feel as though I am an important person to her. She (and others at the firm) are exceptional people and lawyers and I would definitely recommend this firm!!!

Marasco and Nesslebush lawyers for social security
I was disabled for 5 yrs and had an attorney who was no help at all. I found out about marasco and nesslebush went for one consult hired them to help me. Every 3 weeks without fail I received a call letting me know how my case was doing. I always got every question I had answered without fail. Within 4 months they won my case I received my money and was deemed disabled. If you would want a lawyer you can trust and get answers everytime but most important know they are there for you please look no further call marasco and nesslebush. Good luck and thank you to this wonderful team of lawyers
