personal injuries claim against a wax company that burnt my legs
John is without a doubt one of the top Personal Injury Attorneys in the country I had a serious issue with personal injuries to my legs after using a faulty wax product that badly burnt my skin and I found John on Avvo. I had an offer by the company in relation to my Personal Injuries Claim and I felt the company where not rewarding me to the full extent of my pain and the agony I went through , having been off work and additional damage to my bath tub . Following Johns legal advice I consulted the company once again and they offered a substantial amount more of a settlement in relation to both my injuries and the damage to my bath tub. John is an all rounder - charismatic, extremely knowledgeable in Personal Injuries Law and more than happy to take a phone call or an email with a great responsive rate and an always cheery demeanor. In matters such as this it is often hard to know what amount of money is sufficient in a settlement and the parameters by which to set the value of a claim, I had made several mistakes including initially agreeing to a ridiculously low initial offer but thanks to Johns negotiation skills my settlement was satisfactory and a lot greater.

Trustworthy & Knowledgeable
Mr. DeProspo handled my car accident case a few years ago. The case was settled within a short time and I was very happy wit the results. I highly recommend him for any personal injury matter.

Excellent Personal Injury Lawyer
John Deprospo has great depth of experience in his field: personal injury claims. On several occasions he has made the difference for me by giving honest and trustworthy advice. He is very pleasant to work with, unlike some of the more gruff attorneys in this field. That said, he doesn't sugar-coat advice either. Which is good by me. I would rather hear the truth from someone knowledgeable like him than go around in circles. By doing so, he has saved me a lot of energy and time. Would highly recommend him.

Happy with the results
Mr. DeProspo represented me when I slipped and fell at the Westchester Galleria Mall. I badly sprained my right knee. He was able to get a settlement from the insurance company for the mall. Mine wasn't a big case but Mr. DeProspo took it and got me a fair settlement.
