When I found myself lost and overwhelmed...
With one phone call & a matter of 24 hours my phone life was ripped away from me and I was left with the mess to clean up... As things unfolded and I realized I wouldn't be able to keep my head above water by myself I asked for recommendations for a lawyer from close friends and family. Mr. Cardinale was highly recommended and with every ounce of strength I could come up with I called to make an appointment. I spoke to him on the phone, learned what I would need to come up with in cash to start, and scheduled an appointment. I went in with the cash to retain him in my back pocket and tears in my eyes to the consultation. Mr. Cardinale right away was encouraging and understanding of my embarrassment over the situation at hand. I actually did not retain him that day, not because I didn't want to or didn't think he was the right guy for the job, but because he thought it was in my best interest to wait and not make a decision in the midst of the shock I was going through. That confirmed to me all the more that he was exactly the kind of lawyer I wanted to work with.
The entire time Mr. Cardinale and his staff were incredibly helpful, understanding, and gracious to me and my mile long lists of questions. They were consistently helping me to understand each step, preparing me for what was ahead, and never made me feel alone in the process. For me personally this was the best I could have asked for in a lawyer and their team. I was embarrassed, overwhelmed, and lost yet I felt completely confident that I could trust what they were doing.
I would highly recommend giving Mr. Cardinale's office a call.
