Honest and Professional
I had a consultation with Daniel Serratelli about a tenant who stopped paying rent. Mr Serratelli advised me of my rights, prepared me for what action I could take against the tenant, and pointed me in the right direction. Mr. Serratelli was honest and professional and made me feel like my issue was important to him. I felt comfortable and secure in my case thanks to Mr Serratelli's advice. I would recommend Mr. Serratelli to anyone who has legal needs. Thank you for all the help.

Great Lawyer
Great guy & lawyer.. I was extremely nervous in my custody hearing but Mr Serratelli told me what to expect & what he was going to try to do & it went exactly as he stated. I respected him so much I decided to use him for my divorce proceedings & this was one of the best decisions of my life, very conscious of his clients & always have your best interests in mind!!

Even as a kid and teenager, Dan was always a good, honest, decent person; it comes as no surprise to me that his career took a path of representing and standing up for others.

Excellent work!
These guys were great. I had a 30 Mile over speeding ticket, careless driving and a failure to signal. First time we went to court the prosecutor didn't want to cut me a break. Daniel and Anthony explained my options. They never passed judgement and we decided to proceed with trial. At the end I was very happy with the outcome. Thank you guys for everything! My family and my pockets appreciate it. Keep up the excellent work. Highly recommended

Very Impressed!!!
Mr. Sarratelli is an honest, very experienced, down to earth straightforward type of man. The first time I walked into his office to discuss my case I was a bit nervous after walking out I felt a lot more at ease. He broke down to me what to prepared for. Although the process took some time as they all do, each appearance I was honestly more and more impressed. The final out come was greater then I expected. I said to myself WOW is this a miracle? Then I realized that in all reality he is just an amazing, focused, confident attorney that will always deliver what is beneficial for your best interest and out come. Staff also was very kind and always on point with calls as well as preparation. MOST importantly very affordable. Mr. Serratelli will be the only attorney I will ever recommend to friends and family if the are ever in a jam mostly because I will never steer them wrong!

Very professional and nice.
Mr. Seratelli was very professional in his representation in court. He was upfront about what I should expect from his representation. The result of the legal issue was more than what I expected. Mr. Seratelli is highly recommended. I've dealt with many attorneys and this guy is someone I plan on keeping a long and good relationship with for future matters.

Best Lawyers In Town
I was looking for a law firm to handle my case. My case was a bit sensitive due to the fact I have a medical condition that's difficult for me to get around. When I made the call they were very courteous,comforting and professional. One of the lawyers there named Anthony went above and beyond for me helping me get through the case and I can't thank him enough. I would definitely recommend this law firm.
