I was injured in an accident and retained Mr. Garruto as my attorney based on a few referrals of people that I hold in high regard and it was an excellent decision. Mr. Garruto has a vast understanding of the law and guided me through the complicated legal process step by step and made it very easy for me. He was always available for my questions and concerns and I was able to concentrate on healing while he was handling all the legal aspects of my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Garruto to anyone that would require similar legal representation.

Andrew is an excellent attorney. He explained all legal ramifications and was extremely attentive to every detail of my case. I highly recommend him.

Andy Garruto is an excellent and most importantly an effective attorney. I waited for my baby's pictures for over 2 years and once Andy got involved I received them in a matter of couple of months. He is down to earth, professional and dependable. He would check with me often ( and from the time stamps on the emails I don't know if he ever sleeps - he is always accessible). I know he had more important cases than mine but I was treated as if I was his number one priority. Overall it was a great experience I would highly recommend his services to anybody!

I found Andrew to be proficient at his craft. He was thorough and well versed in the facts of the case. He stayed on top of things and responded quickly to any of my concerns.

Andrew represented me very well and settled my case. I was pleased with his services and would recommend him to everyone. He’s definitely a 5 start lawyer.

I have had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Mr. Garruto a few times over the past several months.
I was immediately impressed by Mr. Garruto's friendly persona and quick thinking. After providing just a few basic facts about my situation, he had already presented several potential avenues to take regarding my case. He was very familiar with the law surrounding my issues and how to best deal with them as he has had considerable experience in the area of personal injury settlement and litigation. Mr. Garruto was able to spot issues that had never even occurred to me a proved to be much more accurate in estimating the potential damages and value of my case.
Mr. Garruto carefully explained the potential course of action, the role he plays, and the role I was to play during the settlement/litigation process. Though I did not engage Mr. Garruto in his professional capacity (for reasons completely unrelated to his ability), I felt very comfortable having him as a representative and will certainly turn to him if the need arises in the future. I have no doubt his experience and client dedication would prove invaluable.
More than any other attorney I consulted regarding my claim, Mr. Garruto appeared to be the sharpest and was the fasted to respond to my inquiries. Despite keeping busy, he takes to the time to explain his thoughts and provide support for his conclusions.
I would certainly recommend that you meet with him to discuss your potential claim.

Andrew was the perfect lawyer for my case because going into it I was extremely terrified of the entire process. It made me anxious and I know I drove him, his staff, and my parents NUTS about it. But every SINGLE time I had a question or felt uneasy regarding an aspect of the case, Andrew was RIGHT THERE either in person or on the phone at 10pm talking to me about it and calming me down! He is extremely professional and what I mean when I say he is a "no frills" kind of guy is that he will not sugar coat anything for you. Maybe because I also do not sugar coat things for people is why we got along so well but when it comes to lawyers you definitely want to deal with someone who knows what they are doing (ANDY ALL THE WAY!) and who doesn't sugar coat responses to you or the plaintiffs. I hope to see you again Andy, just not for legal business :-)

I have had two awesome experiences with Andrew Garruto and staff. On my first encounter, I found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. I felt welcomed right from the door. When my name was called, I walked in the office and there was Mr. Garruto with his hand extended for greeting. He offered me a seat. As I sat down I found the client chairs were very comfortable and relaxing. My visit was just a few days past my accident therefore I was in pain and feeling really nerves and confused. Andrew began talking to me making me feel very comfortable and made it easy for me to explain my story. By the end of our meeting, I felt like I had known this man for a lifetime. His attention to detail, his analytical skills and creativity, his research abilities and professionalism, his public speaking were ALL impeccable! As I sat in the court room, I smiled within knowing I chose the best to represent me! I trust Mr. Garruto will all my legal affairs. I'm sure if you make you initial consultation with Andy you won't want to go anywhere else!

Andy was a wonderful lawyer and guide throughout my personal injury case, due to a car accident. As a 20-something, I knew very little about insurance companies, handling claims, dealing with other insurance companies, etc. He was helpful and patient in dealing with my case. He was honest with me and answered any questions (no matter how silly they sounded). He's down to earth, realistic and puts you at ease during stressful/annoying times. Andy's staff was also extremely helpful, responsive and attentive to my case, questions, and concerns.

I cannot say enough about the integrity and professionalism of Andy Garruto. He represented me during a very trying time in my life and absolutely came through for me. He believed in my case and worked tirelessly for me, treating me with respect and compassion every step of the way. I would recommend Andy in a heartbeat and would be more than happy to speak with anyone about my positive experience with Andy who may be in need of his services."
Posted by Vita
Over the years, Andy has handled several cases for me and I couldn't be more happy with him and his staff. Andy takes the time to explain all possible situations you may face, treats you like an equal and leaves decisions up to you. His integrity and that of his staff's is top notch. You'd be hard pressed to find an equally approachable, honest and more sincere attorney. I recommend seeking his advice before dealing with any legal matter.

I sought legal counsel from Mr. Andrew Garruto, with the law firm of Garruto & Calabria, regarding a vehicle accident I was injured in. Throughout my legal case, Mr. Garruto exemplified excellent communication, research and professional skills. His analytical and attention to every detail were evident. Mr. Garruto listened to my concerns and answered all my questions with ease and understanding.
Mr. Garruto continually kept me abreast of all developments. His professionalism is outstanding.
His office staff was knowledgeable, compassionate and helpful.
I was very pleased with the outcome of my case, and would employ Mr. Garruto in the future

Mr. Garruto is an outstanding personal injury attorney. I have had the pleasure of knowing him for years and can say, without a doubt, that he is an ethical attorney, zealous advocate and compassionate practitioner. I, unequivocally, recommend him.

I have worked with Andy on many occasions and feel he is one of the most diligent, compassionate and intelligent members of the legal profession I have come across. He is worthy of being most highly endorsed both as a lawyer and, more importantly, as a person.
