Trustworthy and Caring
When we wanted to create wills after our first child was born, we immediately sought the help of John Giuffré and his team (even though this is not his primary area of practice - he was highly recommended to us by family members and friends). Mr. Giuffré and his team were incredibly kind, patient, and professional. It was clear from the start that they cared about us and our kids, as well as the process of drafting and finalizing wills that will ultimately serve our family well. Mr. Giuffré helped us understand what we needed to include and what we didn't, and he and his team guided us each step of the way. Overall, we had an excellent experience with Mr. Giuffré and his team, and we strongly recommend them!

Tough advocate but compassionate attorney
Mr. Giuffre was a pleasure to have on my side. He made sure that all of my medicals bills were covered. John made sure that my voice was heard and even took my case to court. I feel that he and his team worked very diligently on my case during the past 2 years.

Best of the Best
John and his staff are the best legal team that I know. My case went from the other side wanting to dismiss to me getting the highest settlement allowed. John and staff updated me every step of the 3 1/2 year journey toward settlement. Every document was explained; I was accompanied by John for every deposition; someone was sent to accompany me for every dr visit. As I said above...the best of the best!

Lucy, thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure working with you. All of our reviewers have given us 5 stars. I would add that each of you were 5-star clients: you were responsive, willing to take your lawyer's advice, and patient with a process that often takes years to get fully compensated for serious injuries. It is a privilege to be the voice of the injured.

Wonderful, Inspiring
John has been my attorney for many years, handling a variety of matters for me, my family and my business matters. John's office is professional, attentive and most important experts in what they do. I cannot recommend a professional more highly than John Giuffre and the Giuffre Law Offices.
Response from John Giuffre March 26, 2020
John was and continues to be a pleasure to work with. We are now on the second generation of clients as many of our clients have children and grandchildren who we are privileged to represent. John is another 5-star client who has paid us the compliment of referring friends and family. I am grateful for his review and, more importantly, for his friendship for over 40 years.

The REAL deal and he cares so much.
When I first contacted Mr. Giuffre, I was very nervous and just had gone through a traumatic car accident and well, didn't really trust anyone at that point to help and protect me. However, from the get go, Mr. Giuffre made me felt at ease. He never wavered, he never lost hope, he never gave up, he accompanied me at every step of the way and reassured me I wasn't alone. I never even knew lawyers like this existed, let alone people. However, Mr. Giuffre really is the real deal. Not only is he nice and sweet as pie but hes smart and has lots of wisdom, something that goes along way. I am proud to say that Mr. Giuffre was my lawyer and I truly got the best one there is. Thank you Mr. Giufrre for all you have done for me and all of your colleagues. Thank you for protecting me.
