Highly Recommend
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!!!

I was impressed with Christopher. His honesty is so refreshing. His advice was spot on and when we first consulted him he told us he would research our situation and did so extensively . He made himself available for all my phone calls and I truly felt he had our best interest at heart.

Outstanding A+ service
I consulted with Mr. Berlingieri over a claim for possible discrimination, false advertisement of pay, and unpaid wages. During this consultation the lawyer was fully transparent and non-biased while discussing my options to resolve the issue. He was very polite and personable when I interacted with him over the phone or through email. He really made me feel comfortable the entire time, and he never made it seem that he was too busy for me, or my claims were unimportant. I really loved and appreciated how quick his turnaround time was to address my questions and concerns.

Great experience with Christopher
Christopher was an excellent partner in helping me through every step of my legal case. He was extremely responsive and transparent throughout the entire process. Dealing with any type of legal issue is stressful but Christopher helped put my mind at ease. He presented various options for my case and did not pressure me into any options I was not comfortable with. My case had a positive outcome and he was resilient in making sure I received a rightful settlement. Everything was quick, seamless, and straightforward.

AMAZING Lawyer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Attorney Berlingieri answered my inquiry from a legal website. I knew from the first correspondence with him I had found the PERFECT lawyer to represent me in my unemployment case. He kept in touch with me and constantly updated me on the status of my case. If you have an unemployment case you want to win and have the best attorney represent you, call Christopher Berlingieri

Thank you Attorney Berlingieri
I hired Attorney Berlingieri for a employment-related case. Attorney Berlingieri was easy to talk to and always made sure my questions or concerns were addressed. The diligent work he produced for my case, his ability to communicate, showing he cared about helping other people and his knowledge of the laws for my state are just a few reasons why I would recommend him.

Incredible Resource
I was referred to Chris from a lawyer that I know and trust who had worked with me to successfully sue a company and I'd switched counsel to pursue additional lawsuits. The process was seamless and professional and he was an incredible resource for employment claims from unpaid wages, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, and retaliation. His legal counsel gave me closure and distance. I would refer him to any interested parties. Thank you.

Lawyer, Warrior ... Warrior Lawyer
I hired the legal services of Christopher after consulting with other lawyers and after having paid another lawyer ... however, 15 minutes into a conversation with Christopher and I knew he was the lawyer that I needed, wanted and must have for my case. He went to war for me and his due diligence was the difference in winning! I can’t say enough about his legal expertise, his ability to litigate and his ability to get the job done! I fully recommend him!
