Feeling Potected
Michael Pescatore enabled me to finally feel protected when he represented me in a Civil Construction Law Suit. He took over the case after I had a bad experience with two other firms. Mike did an amazing job as he was knowledgeable, conscientious, and thorough , along with many other professional qualities . He educated and guided me through depositions and a mediation involving me against 3 opposing attorneys. Bottom line, due to the fact that I trusted him and felt protected I was able to relax which resulted in me walking away satisfied with my settlement and the feeling that Justice prevailed as much as it could have under my particular circumstances.

Skilled Litigator
I retained Mike Pescatore for a case that I was personally involved in last year. I needed an attorney that had experience in commercial litigation and could handle a file through trial, should the case not settle. As an attorney myself, I was pleased to receive status reports on a weekly basis and always kept informed of what Mike's strategy was going to be. I could not be happier with the outcome and I believe that the case settled early because our adversaries knew Mike was skilled in the courtroom and was prepared to present the case to a jury.

Outstanding attorney
Mike is an excellent attorney and always kept me informed as to the status of my case. His presentation to the Court was flawless and we got an excellent outcome based on his knowledge of the law and his courtroom skills. I would highly recommend him, especially for municipal cases.
