Down to earth, professional, communicative
I hired Attorney Altieri on the recommendation of a friend. I was involved in a motor vehicle accident, and Attorney Altieri helped walk me through the whole process. He's a really nice guy, very smart, and personable. Instead of having to fight with the insurance company, he handled everything and negotiated a good settlement for me. Highly recommend.

Brian Altieri Is an Outstanding Lawyer
I highly recommend Brian Altieri for anyone in need of legal representation. I was involved in a workplace accident 2 1/2 years ago. Brian worked diligently and effectively to secure weekly workers compensation benefits for me. There were challenges from the insurance company, as they were not originally willing to pay weekly benefits. Brian did a great job communicating these challenges to me, and he fought the insurance company until they agreed to dispense weekly payments. Brian also fought for me when my employer attempted to swiftly discontinue my employment as a result of my inability to physically meet the demands of my job. He communicated effectively with my employer to make sure that I was being treated fairly. Brian demonstrated a very friendly and confident attitude about every aspect of the case. His style puts the client at ease. He allows the client to understand the specific challenges that a case may present. Brian's experience and competence in dealing with his clients employers, opposing legal counsel, Dr's, and representatives from the insurance companies made me feel confident that my case was moving in the appropriate direction at all times. If you are a client of Brian Altieri, you are in good hands. Brian is extremely skilled in all matters of professional communication. In addition to fighting for and getting me my weekly workers compensation payments for 2 1/2 yrs, Brian was able to settle my case for a lump sum payment which was more than I could have hoped for. Overall, I am extremely satisfied and pleased with Brian's effort and results. I recommend anyone who has been injured at work to consult with Brian Altieri.

Brian went above and beyond as my attorney. He made himself always available day and night for any questions or concerns I had regarding my case. He made me feel like I was his most important client. I recommend him to everyone. You won't find a better or more caring attorney anywhere, period.

Attorney Altieri was one of the best I have dealt with! A very important aspect of this industry is communication in my opinion. He would keep me constantly in the "loop" of what was going on, even if there was no "new" news he would call me up to check in. I appreciate this type of customer service and wish every one had this approach. He was also very personable and clearly was interested in my personal situation, I did not feel at ANY point in time that I was another "file" in his filing cabinet. Do yourself or loved ones a favor and schedule a consultation with him and see what he has to say!
