Top Star Business Trademark Attorney
I hired Attorney Sciglimpaglia after a friend at a wedding referred him to me. I was in need of a business attorney who could handle my trademark applications. Robert was extremely knowledgable and was very receptive. Down to earth and very friendly. He processed the application and answered all my questions during the process. Very pleased with his response time and knowledge with federal trademark law. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs his assistance with business law.

A Gem in the Legal Field
I had the good fortune of finding Rob after I had been working with attorneys who didn't understand the intricacies of Workers' Comp law. There was so much I didn't know about the process of being an injured employee. I was scared and in the dark on important protocols and procedures. The world was spinning around me, and when I hired Rob, clarity came into view and my anxieties started to wane. There wasn't a question he couldn't answer. Rob stayed by my side as a steadfast partner for two years as we navigated complicated injuries and a third party suit. I was emotionally devastated by how my employer responded to my accident, and Rob met me with so much compassion and care. He wasn't just my lawyer, he was a sage guide and partner during uncertain times. He looked out for me in every way a person could. He helped pick me up after the loss of the career I loved, and helped me to look forward, not back. If you hire Rob, what you will find is an honest and dedicated attorney who is a truly good man. Any e-mail I sent with a question or concern was returned immediately, and he always made time for me on the phone. I endorse Rob with a full heart and am truly grateful for everything he has done for me, legally and beyond. If I ever need an attorney again, I know exactly who to call.

Review of Mr.Robert J. Sciglimpaglia, Jr., attorney-at-law
From our first conversation, I felt that Rob Sciglimpaglia could be the lawyer to help me. I had a complicated W. Comp case and had researched countless lawyers before contacting Rob. He didn't promise the moon, nor did he discourage me with potential doom and gloom. He would receive a percentage of whatever settlement he was able to reach. We communicated by phone and email. Before I hired him, I sent him piles of paperwork - and after reading through it, he said he thought he could help .It took many months to finally reach a settlement - the opposing attorneys were very difficult such that I understood the final $ amount was the best that anyone could have achieved. I was kept informed throughout the process. Rob was professional, knowledgeable, kind, personable, helpful, and - always reasonable with his encouragement. The final thing that needs to be mentioned is that apart from his excellent legal skills, this is a good and kind man. It had become clear that the final $ result was lower than we had hoped for --and it was equally clear that the opposition was resolutely and stubbornly sticking to it. Mr Sciglimpaglia agreed to lower his percentage so that I would get a little bit more money. (He knew about my tenuous financial situation.) Never have I come across a lawyer that would do such a thing when absolutely not required to do so. Anyone in need of a W. Comp attorney would do well by hiring him. I have no doubt that he is just as competent in the other areas in which he works. However, I do not have first-hand knowledge of these and therefore cannot speak definitively of them. I would hire Rob again if I had the need - and surely this is the highest kind of praise.

Excellent Well-rounded Attorney. It gives me great pleasure and privilege to give this Review on Atty Robert Sciglimpaglia (Rob)
Professionally, Rob is well qualified and personally, he is compassionate, honest and (most importantly) very reasonable and protective of his clients. I have found Rob to possess very sound judgement in legal matters. So, he is a very good Consultation (and referral) Attorney, as well. I have known Rob for over 20 years now and he has represented me in almost all areas of legal practice, particularly Real Estate and personal injury - in which he excels. In one Settlement Agreement (where Rob represented me) even the presiding judge characterized him as "a good family man". Therefore, I feel Rob is very trust worthy. I would never take any legal decision or, put my signature on any legal document without consulting with Rob.

EXCELLENT ATTORNEY - THE BEST
He is honest and real. He is effective and efficient, excellent at what he does, because he knows what he is doing ~ whether it is real estate, foreclosure, contract law, personal injury, worker's compensation, or other legal concerns. I have hired him several times. When I need an attorney, he is the first I think to hire because he is the best there is.
