Hard working, dedicated attorney!
After my father and I were involved in an automobile accident our life has changed. We contacted Maggiano, DiGirolamo, & Lizzi. Mr. DiGirolamo helped us to the right path of getting the care we needed. Having been through this tragedy, we had many questions and concerns. Mr. DiGirolamo and his staff were always there to answer. My father and I are truly blessed to have such a hard working, dedicated attorney by our side.

Five-Star + Attorney!
Christopher DiGirolamo represented me for an auto accident. It was a complicated case due to several factors, involving multiple doctors, procedures, surgical centers, and finally surgery and rehab. While not the largest case he ever had, it was certainly a challenge! He and his paralegal did an excellent job of keeping all the facts, paperwork and personnel involved straight. Chris was in regular contact with me and my husband, the insurance companies and my doctors. I always received a response if I called or emailed. All these are things I would expect from an attorney. What sets Chris apart, however, are attributes that go beyond the minimum required to "get the job done." His passion for his profession... It's apparent Chris has a love for the law and justice. Not once did he need to consult with someone else - his knowledge base is vast - and he knew the answer to any question we asked right away. At no time did I ever feel he was rushing through my case just to settle and move on. Chris sets very high standards for himself to be sure he is not just doing all he can, but going that extra mile. His dedication to his clients... If I needed to see him, even if it was not something regularly scheduled, he always made time to see me. If I had a question, Chris would always contact me quickly or be sure his paralegal got me the information I needed if he was unavailable. When I emailed him, he always emailed me back. He often stayed late at the office or came in on a Saturday to accommodate my work schedule. When I didn't understand something, Chris would review it with me in a different way until he was sure I was clear on the subject. He forged relationships with my doctors if he didn't have previous experience with them to be sure I was getting the care required. His compassion for what his clients are going through... I can't emphasize enough how important this characteristic was to me. Through most of the time my case took, I was upset, crying, feeling defeated. It was a scary time for both me and my husband. Whenever we met with Chris, he presented a positive attitude even if the news wasn't great that particular day. This was a huge comfort to me. Chris is not only professional and polite, he's personable, sympathetic and empathetic when that applied. He understands, and is a decent, caring person in a world where we hear lawyers advertising on TV how good, quick and efficient they are. I don't want that. I want someone who is going to take the time and effort my case needs, but you also get the "warm fuzzy" with Chris. In summary, Chris DiGirolamo ranks among the best of the best. Passionate, professional, dedicated and caring. He resolved my case in a manner that was more satisfying than expected. He is an amazing person and I would highly recommend Chris and his firm in a heartbeat. I wish I could give him 10 stars.

Excellent attorney & support staff
Chris DiGiralamo was an excellent advocate in my negligence case. His confidence, professionalism and kindness made this difficult process easier for my husband and myself. The same for his support team. Marisol Suarez was always there via phone, email or text helping me to navigate the difficulties of Workers Comp in addition to the negligence case and Karen Sanchez, who recommended the firm to me, was invaluable in helping with video & pictures. I thank you all here, publicly, and recommend this firm highly for any legal needs.

Thanks Lawyer DIGIROLAMO.
Thank attorney, you have given me hope, even though in these years my situation was not the best, I have received fair treatment, and I have never been in danger of leaving my family adrift, Marisol, her secretary I had always aware of my case, she was always my support also her words of encouragement were always a plus during this time, in general their professionalism, humanity and perseverance there given me peace and hope for better days.We went to the court and I'll be receiving a weekly payment for several more years, when we'll go back to the judgement again, but with Mr. DiGirolamo as my Lawyer I feel very confident and Im sure my future don't be to dark and my family will no be alone, thanks to Mr. DiGirolamo.

Christopher DiGirolamo of Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi was great!!
I used Christopher DiGirolamo for a workers comp case. I was told by everybody that I didn't have a case. I was referred to Chris, who not only took my "unwinnable" case, but felt he could get me a fair settlement. He was good at explaining what the process was in a way I would understand and kept me informed along the way. His courtesy and professionalism always kept me at ease. He explained to me what my options were and helped me make the right decisions for my case. Chris and Marisol Suarez responded to emails and phone calls in a timely manners. From a few meetings with him, Chris was able to get all necessary information and he quickly, knowledgeably and professionally closed my case getting me far more than I expected. He fought for and got the maximum amount the judge recommended. I would highly recommend Christopher DiGirolamo for the professionalism and diligence shown to me during this process.

Our Lawyer, Mr. Christopher DiGirolamo, is the best!!!
We could not have been blessed with a better firm to represent our case. Mr. Christopher DiGirolamo, of Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi, P.C., was our attorney, and he and his team were extremely competent, professional, friendly, accessible and simply a joy to interact with. Other attorneys were not optimistic at all about a positive result. Yet, Mr. DiGirolamo took our case despite the odds and expedited a favorable outcome. He cared so much, worked so hard and always kept us in the loop on the status of the case. His staff are incredible as well and so nice, polite and respectful. We highly recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal representation. You won't regret it!!!

Smart and personable attorney, highly recommend
I highly recommend Mr. Christopher DiGirolamo if you need a personal injury attorney. I did not want to pursue a lawsuit but unfortunately I was injured in an accident and I was not getting better. Visiting doctors and going to physical therapy was time consuming. The last thing I had time or energy for was the paperwork and recordkeeping necessary for the case. Thankfully Mr. DiGirolamo's staff helped to manage and organize the paperwork. They were also very sympathetic and knew how upset I was with the whole situation. I am very grateful to Mr. DiGirolamo for all of his hard work. He settled my case so we did not have to go to court.

Best lawyer ever.
I was in a bad motor vehicle accident on 8/01/14 and have permanent back problems and the accident cost me a career. From the very first time I met Chris he was attentive and sympathetic to my problems. Chris has always taken the time to focus on me when ever I needed him to. Chris did things with my case I never dreamed possible. Chris and his staff went above and beyond to make me feel like a member of there family. I wish I was never involved in the accident but I am unbelievably happy that I got to meet Chris and his staff. They made a horrible time in my life bearable. Chris and his staff set the bar extremely high.

The best lawyer you will ever find
I was stuck with a no win case. I went to many lawyers and they all turned me away saying there was no chance I would ever win. The statute of limitations was almost up and I had basically given up and lost hope. Then I met Chris DiGirolamo. He and his team looked over my case and decided to take it. I was in shock that after all of the lawyers I met with who told me I had NO chance of winning that I found the one lawyer who believed he could win it for me. Chris fought for me the entire way and went above and beyond for me. The lawyers we were fighting against basically laughed at us for even trying to sue and said we had no chance. Fast forward to now and they're no longer laughing because we won. Chris is the only lawyer who had the confidence to take my case and the skill and passion to back his confidence up. The entire lawsuit was seamless and painless for me as all I had to do was go to his office for 2 hours for the deposition. Chris kept me informed the entire way and not only did he keep me informed, he listened to me as well. Whenever he would tell me something he would also tell me what direction he was trying to go with it, what his next step was going to be, and then would ask if I felt comfortable with everything. At one point he had gotten me a settlement offer that was amazing. I couldnt believe we got that high of an offer. Even the other lawyers that originally declined me were in shock when they found out that we got a settlement offer for that high of an amount. We declined the offer and Chris got me WELL OVER triple that amount. Chris would keep up with my family and things that didnt pertain to the case and was genuinely interested in how things in my life were going. Not only do I call Chris my lawyer but I also call him my friend. I can not recommend Chris DiGirolamo enough. Chris did what no one else could or would even attempt. I am proud to be able to call Chris my lawyer and my friend because I know that if I ever need any legal assistance at all I have nothing to worry about because I have one of the best lawyers in the business.

Workers comp/car accident
I would highly recommend Chris DiGirolamo. I was involved in a major car accident while working for a transportation company. He is competent, knowledgeable, patient and compassionate. Chris is professional but very human with a big heart. Marisol is very pleasant and helpful with a lot of patience. She goes above and beyond. She always immediately returns my calls and emails if she is not available. I know my case was not Chris' largest case but he and Marisol worked on my case as if it was the largest case in the office.

My Experience
Mr. DiGirolamo represented me during a workman compensation case and was quite helpful in bringing about a fair settlement to the case. His attention to my case and knowledge of the law made for the entire process to be handled in a timely manner. His helpful staff remained in contact with me during the entire event. I'm glad I had Mr DiGirolamo as my attorney and will seek his council in the future should the need arise.

Workers Comp / Accident Injury
I cannot speak more highly of Chris DiGirolamo and Mariso Suarez! They have provide me the care and attention to my case that is above and beyond what I expected. Marisol, has been there to help with all of the paperwork surrounding the case and even worked with the insurance companies claims team to get me an extension of physical therapy treatments that went past the ins. companies normal amount for this type of injury. Chris has worked diligently throughout, first getting a great resolution for me on the Workers comp case in the NJ Workers Comp court. Then he went above and beyond to find an appropriate attorney in the state were my accident occurred who will be able to represent me on the injury claims against the parties where the injury occurred. I highly recommend Chris and Marisol, I don't believe you will find better to help you.

Car accident
When I met Chris about my case, he was able to tell me in detail how the case would proceed. I was especially satisfied with the office staff, especially Maricol, who was responsible for scheduling and answering my questions when Chris was unavailable (e.g. In court) The case was concluded with my complete satisfaction. There were no surprises.
