Couldn't be happier!!!
Nothing goes fast, but Michael and his team were able to settle my case for way more that expected. I couldn't have been happier with the outcome, compassion and patience that I received. I would gladly recommend him to anyone in need.

Great Attorney!!!
I had an unfortunate, possibly devastating, situation occur. Mr. Colarusso was able to turn that around to a positive one for me. He is kind, genuine, professional, extremely knowledgeable, supportive, and will fight for you. If I ever am in need of an attorney again, I know exactly who I will go to! Thank you Mr. Colarusso.

Working With Michael Colarusso
Mr. Colarruso handled my case very efficiently, and I didn't have any complaints in any areas. He is very bright, organized, and a good communicator. It's refreshing to work with someone who respects you and does what he says he is going to do. I would gladly work with him again - although I'm hoping no one else crashes into me.

Highly Recommended
We would highly recommend Mr. Colarusso to help you with your personal injury case. He steered us in the right direction, gave great advice and was able to get a reasonable settlement for us. He answered all the questions we had and responded to emails quickly. He definitely knows what he is doing.
