I was in the middle of talks with my school district, with another lawyer, whom I was not happy with. I reached out to Ms. DeCrescenzo and her colleague, as well as herself, immediately contacted me! In the meantime, I let her know we had come to an agreement with the district, she said she was happy to hear it and if I ever needed them they are there! So sorry I didn't find her sooner!

My lawyer is simply the best ever. She is an attorney that cares and puts her best foot forward, in order to obtain an successful outcome for her client(s). I am so pleased with the way the firm is handling my case, they keep me informed every step of the way. The level of professionalism has surely met my expectations and thus far, I am certain that all will work in my favor; under the representation of my attorney and the firm.

Gina DeCrescenzo is both extremely knowledgeable and compassionate when it comes to her clients. Her understanding of Education Law, a highly specialized field of practice, is exceptional, and her client service is remarkable. I highly endorse and recommend her as a strong advocate for her clients.
