Would give 6 stars if I could
Chris was empathetic, detail oriented, consistent and provided great advice in my legal conundrum with a former employer. Even more important, he was able to secure a great outcome despite dealing with a very difficult counterparty. I would strongly recommend retaining his services.

So pleased with and grateful for Mr.Berlingieri
Mr. Berlingieri is a hardworking, thoughtful and compassionate lawyer. He took my case and fought for me for me and my case until the very end. He always kept me in the loop, explained what was happening and fought hard for the best outcome we could get. If your looking for a lawyer you can trust, make you comfortable and fight for you he is the one and the best option. I’m so grateful for him!!

Civil Rights Case
Christopher heard my complex case and took it on confidently. He believed in me and had my back from day one. Extremely responsive and very diligent attorney. He made me feel like a priority every step of the way and took the time to explain any uncertainties I had along the way. He fights for what is right. This attorney is a shark which I highly recommend.

Excellent service
Chris was a great attorney. I got fired from my job for refusing a mandatory medical procedure. He was on my side the whole time. He fought hard for me and gave me updates along the way to keep me informed. I was more than happy with his service and the outcome. I strongly recommend him.

Legal expertise, energy and authenticity
I normally don’t write reviews but this one for Chris is important to share. I consulted with Chris on in depth conflicts during litigation and in collaboration with my counsel to help achieve a particular reality for resolving my case with co-plaintiff regarding strategy. Chris was exceptionally generous with his knowledge and time. He won’t BS you or waste your time. Chris is energetic, passionate and authentic; rare qualities in todays legal scene.

Excellent
Attorney Berlingieri has always remained professional and committed to my case, very prompt with communication and helping me navigate through my legal issues with a multiple billion dollar global industry where I felt little and unfamiliar he made me aware and let me know help was only a phone call away. Will definitely hold onto his number ( Hopefully it won’t be needed) but always good to have.

Christopher was amazing to me. I cannot tell you how fearful and overwhelmed I felt with my situation. He listened, he was reassuring and very quick with helping me. Christopher was available to answer all questions I had. I highly recommend contacting him.

I wish there were more than 5 stars!!!
Chris was referred by a very close friend that told me he was extremely cautious when recommending someone but knew from the first day he met Chris that he would be extremely successful. Chris took the time to explore all the details of my case in a very careful and thoughtful manner. I in turn made sure that I was as honest in the events leading to my employer dispute. He went above and beyond my expectations and did not ask for an exorbitant retainer like many attorneys would do in a case like mine. We both made sure that we were respectful of each other as well as my prior firm. The whole process has lead to an outcome that is beneficial to all parties involved. Fair and Just. What else could anyone ask for when working with an attorney in an employer/employee dispute. At the end of the day I wish my former employer success in managing my former clients, and know that Chris will continue to serve his clients and have incredible success as well. I am so lucky to have Chris as my attorney!!!

Chris took my case when every one else rejected it. Christopher is by far the best lawyer I have had...and believe me I have had a lots of them. Christ dedicated, understanding, and Goes above and beyond. No one has ever fought for me like Christ has We just won our case last week .

Believe me you want Christopher berlingierie on your side. He will not let you down. A true angel . Thank you for being you. For your dedication. You really are a God sent. You inspired me Christ and I'm in awe. Ami
