Hire him! You won’t regret it.
Always answers calls personally on first ring. Worth the wait if you show up in his office as his 24/7 work ethic is right before your eyes. This man works harder than any other attorney I have encountered. Mr. Pisano yielded excellent result - three times insurance offer. Serious attorney, attentive, high energy and fast paced.

Mr. Pisano fought my insurance company for seven years. He has extremely experienced certified trial attorneys working with him. The insurance company wouldn't settle which was not a concern for Mr. Pisano who picked a jury and tried my case to verdict. He convinced a judge to try the case all over again after the jury came back with a ridiculously low verdict. I couldn't believe it! Mr. Pisano tried the case all over again receiving a very large verdict from the second jury. He then convinced the doctors to waive significant portions of their fees so that I was finally compensated. He doesn't quit until his client's interest are fully protected. I would highly recommend this lawyers to others.

Professional to the Extreme!
Unreal energy! The amount and quality of legal work this individual handles is incomparable. He never stops pushing on behalf of a client, regardless of the size of the case. Today I received the amazing news that Mr. Pisano convinced a panel of three judges to reverse a trial judge's ruling, which of course means I will receive the settlement I was always entitled to. I am told that most lawyers would have not even tried to win my appeal.

Took risk that other lawyers would not
Apparently you cannot file a claim against a city in New Jersey. At-least that's what I was told by two other lawyers, before contacting Mr. Pisano who just said "come on over to my office". Inside of ten minutes he dictated formal notices on my behalf which apparently preserved my rights. Within days he hired an engineer to establish the negligence of the city and contrary to the advice of the un-energetic lawyers I first spoke to, Mr. Pisano was able to obtain a large settlement on my behalf, which is having a long term positive effect on my finances. More people should be aware of this man as he refuses to advertise, but out works any other attorney I am aware of through unreal energy and enthusiasm.

Tough, innovative and amazing outcome
I was in a serious accident, which brought about the need for two surgeries. I was unaware that my policy only allowed a $15,000.00 maximum settlement. As I was traveling on a work related assignment, Mr. Pisano convinced Judge that my employer's automobile policy afforded me additional coverage under a new statute. Wow! What followed was a huge binding award, which the insurance company was forced to immediately pay. What a great lawyer!!!! Fast and expeditious beyond belief.

Bluntly candid efficient to the max
Lien machine like no other. Takes your call, often on the first ring. Minimizes inconvenience. Personally communicates steps in your case often in the evening, so as to give adequate time. Pushed my case out to trial in record time at which time the insurance carrier paid out the entire 250,000.00 policy. Very entertaining if not charismatic guy. Looks, dresses conducts himself at all times like the top tier professional that comes to mind when thinking of the ultimate lawyer. Energy level of this guy is incomparable.

Amazing outcome!!
Mr Pisano settled my case for an incredible sum of money, approximately eight years ago. To my surprise my sixteen year old daughter who occupied my car when the accident occurred began displaying significant jaw symptoms somehow, mr Pisano was able to locate a great expert, proved my daughters claim and obtained another large settlement. He never did not return or take my calls throughout these cases. I don't understand how anyone good criticize this amazing lawyer

Takes care of details
Mr Pisano won a very large award for my uncle over twenty years ago. I over heard him talk about his work ethic, never anticipating that I would ever need his representation. That changed the night my car was flipped over in an intersection accident as a result of a drunk driver. What startled me was the realization that my own insurance company attempted to discourage my doctors from treating me. Mr Pisano successfully arbitrated my medical care twice and ultimately forced the insurance carrier to pay out the entire 300,000.00 insurance policy within fourteen months. Never unavailable, with an amazingly up beat optimistic attitude. True professional charismatic advocate for his clients. Nothing gets by him. Nobody blows a deadline with him involved. Clients who find their way into his office, grow to realize that few individuals in any field operate at his level. Simply impressive in all aspects. See for yourself.

Turned my terrible personal injury experience into a blessing in disguise!
In March of 2013, I was attacked by a large dog, who ripped the lower half of my face apart so badly that it had to be reconstructed by a plastic surgeon. The whole experience was more traumatizing that you can possibly imagine, and left me out of work with huge medical bills. John came to see me in the hospital the night of the surgery (which was 6 pm on a Saturday!) to discuss my case. He gave me hope, so I hired him. Over the next year and a half, Mr. Pisano worked tirelessly on my case, making decisions that I felt were absolutely in my best interest. The case finally settled in September of 2014 (which is when he originally told me would probably be the time we finished up) and I ended up with a large settlement. I was finally able to pay off all the bills that kept piling up from not working. (I ended up with very bad PTSD, so haven't been working.) My cable had been shut off, my power about to be disconnected, and I was facing eviction. I was also able to continue the medical and psychological care needed to heal from this event. I couldn't have done any of that without his hard work. Mr. Pisano is brilliant. He is fast, sharp, knowledgeable, and professional. He did SUCH an amazing job with my case. The entire time he was working on my case, I really felt he cared, and made the best decisions for my case. I highly recommend him. He's wonderful!

Sharp and fast
I am so happy with Mr Pisano's representation. I agree with the other reviews. He takes or returns all calls. Each time I inquired about something that I believed should be done, I learned Mr Pisano already did it. 1 year after my case settled, an unreasonable Doctor, that dropped the ball on submitting my bill to insurance, filed suit against me, Mr Pisano jumped all over the problem and counter sued, the Doctor. His fee was already earned, but he enthusiastically cleaned up this unfair conduct of the Dr. Great guy. True gentlemen. His loyalty is to his clients.

Doesn't back down
I had a tough case with real injuries, requiring three surgeries.,Mr. Pisano was hit with more aggressive tactics by the insurance company than I ever foresaw. I was experiencing financial problems, which caused my insurance to lapse, when the accident occurred. Despite a law that said I could not sue, Mr Pisano was so innovative, that court allowed my case to proceed and I received a large award, that compensated me and covered all of my dr bills. This man is the real deal .

Warp speed
John filed my lawsuit 3 days after my accident occurred. He succesfully fought my own insurance twice when medical care was denied. What really impressed me was his unwillingness to consider delays. It is almost as if he takes the last syllable in his name literally, when deling with the insurance companies. My case got to the trial phase in fourteen months which I am told is incredibly fast. Problem was there were no judges available. Instead of falling to the back of the line, Mr Pisano negotiated an agreement where three retired judges heard my case and got me a huge award. Overwhelmed, if not thrilled. But for Mr Pisano's tactics, my financial situation would not be anywhere near as good as it now is.

Outside the box
I don't know how Mr Pisano does it, but he takes every call. Two lawyers declined my case. I utilized lawyers in the past, which is why I know his streamlined can do attitude is so unique. He personally went out and found two witnesses that backed up my version of my case and ultimately got State Farm to pay out it's entire 100000.00 policy. what a turn around! One of a kind aggressive lawyer

Verdict 8 times the offer
He takes small and large cases and develops them with equal energy. The chief judge told Mr Pisano to take 10000.00. mr Pisano stood up to him, tried the case and got me 80000.00 from the jury plus interest. Somehow the trial was actually stress free. Mr Pisano's upbeat entertaining personality carried the day .

Aggressive and fast
Mr Pisano gave me a half hour of his time so as to educate me as to why a case I wanted to pursue was not worth the effort. I was so grateful that I insisted that my sister utilize him for a very serious injury matter. he overturned the insurance carriers refusal to pay for her surgery and achieved a large settlement in fourteen months truly impressed

Great attorney
Mr. Pisano handled a very unfortunate matter involving the loss of my father. At the outset he was warm and caring in dealing with the trauma that my family was going through. Simultaneously he was as aggressive as you can get. Mr. Pisano filed the suit the same day that we selected him as our attorney. He also immeidiately hired an outsanding engineer to prove the cause of the accident and a top financial expert to prove the severe financial loss that my family endured. He got us top dollar at an incredibly fast pace. I sincerely recommend Mr. Pisano.

Great Litagator
I interviewed two other lawyers before meeting Mr. Pisano and immediately concluded that he was the right lawyer for me. He actually filed my lawsuit during our initial meeting. True to his promise, he took or returned every one of my calls during the amazingly fast 14 months that it took for Mr. Pisano to get my case to trial. I was also amazed at how he obtained cooperation from all of my doctors so as to prove my case.

Thrilled with results
Mr. Pisano somehow managed to take every one of my telephone calls during the two years he represented me with respect to a serious personal injury case. The insurance company used ridiculous tactics to try to dismiss my case which Mr.Pisano fought every time. I will recommend Mr.Pisano to all my friends and family.

Great lawyer! Great person to deal.
I actually terminated a lawyer and transferred my personal injury case to Mr. Pisano. Immediately I experienced a dramatic improvement in communication and the pace of movement of my case towards trial. My case settled for more then I ever expected. Great lawyer and great person to deal with.

Fast and Efficient
Mr. Pisano filed my lawsuit immediately, upon agreeing to represent me, instead of like several lawyers who have represented my friends. The results were outstanding. He kept me informed every step of the way, which culminated with jury selection.

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"John Pisano is, without question, one of the best personal injury attorneys in the state of New Jersey. There are very few attorneys who handle cases as well as Mr. Pisano. He takes a no nonsense approach to his practice to ensure that he gets the best results for each and every client. His law firm is truly unparalleled in that way. He manages every case with exceptional expertise. He is a seasoned attorney having handled thousands upon thousands of personal injury cases with outstanding results. There are countless personal injury attorneys in New Jersey, however, finding quality representation is vitally important for clients to have some peace of mind after sustaining injuries in an accident. I have worked with Mr. Pisano and have seen first-hand how his representation is far superior to that of other attorneys. Attorneys of this caliber are few and far between. Mr. Pisano is surely one of the best."
