Attorney Minchella has worked with or companies for many years. During that period he has shown incredible knowledge of law and ethics. I would highly recommend him to a friend

Atty. Minchella represented my law firm and me personally when my ex-wife (also a lawyer) filed a lawsuit against me - years after our divorce was finalized and after a lengthy trial. What she didn't get from the state family court Judge, she tried to get by attempting an end run in Federal Court - claiming the lawsuit was a contractual claim pursuant to our former law partnership and thus "wasn't part of" the earlier divorce case. Needless to say, I was worried and thought I had seen the end of this woman's constant legal maneuvering and scheming. Plus, there was potentially millions of additional dollars at stake. Atty. Minchella stepped in and after a long fight, convinced the Federal Judge that the claim was baseless and contrary to the existing law. The case was dismissed and judgment entered in my favor. His legal skill and writing skill was top notch and impressive as I've been a trial lawyer for almost thirty years. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat.
