Best Law firm in the area!
Michael Quatrini and his paralegal Lisa submitted my initial application for disability and it was approved on the first try. They were always available to answer any questions and I'm certain they will do anything they can to assist you. This law firm goes above and beyond when it comes to the personal touch, being available, and doing anything they can to keep your anxiety to a minimum. The people who work for this firm understand what the people coming to them have been through. They really strive for providing the best and most personalized service. This is also one of the few law firms that will start a claim for Social Security Disability from the beginning...most aren't interested in you until you've been denied. You still have to provide all of the information regarding health issues, education, and work history, but once you've provided that information, they'll take it from there. The attorneys each focus on a specialty, and the departments work well together. This means they can effectively and efficiently coordinate multiple cases, such as disability and workers compensation. They bring years of valuable experience to the table. I would highly recommend this firm for anyone filing for Social Security Disability or for anything else that involves injuries, disability, etc! Thank you Michael and Lisa. Your efforts are very much appreciated. I'm grateful, and will always turn to you guys for this type of help.

VETERANS AGENT ORANGE CLAIM
I contacted Michael after five years and numerous denials, he reviewed my claim and medical records and determined that most of the data in my file was overlooked. He filed a High Level Review with the Department of Veterans Affairs and I was awarded the correct compensation and disability ratings that I had been denied in the past. I would highly recommend Michael and the Quatrini Rafferty with VA disability benefits claims.

Awesome Job
Over all was a very smooth process considering it was with the Social Security Department. Lawyers office handled everything though the initial claim, the denial, and the hearing where we won. Was a pleasure to be represented by such a nice firm.

Worker's Compensation
Michael is fantastic at what he does. I had never had occasion to be involved with a compensation case, and Michael always stopped and took plenty of time to explain every step of the process. He never talked over me or down to me; he talked with me. There was never a time where I thought that he did not know what he was doing. He checked and double-checked things, he always got back to me when I had questions, he told me everything I need to know. An honest and good guy, Michael made sure I had everything I needed every step of the way and he made the two-year process much less stressful. I would absolutely seek his counsel again.

Best disability lawyer!
I initially contacted Michael Quatrini for help with my social security claim, because I personally could not navigate the paperwork side of things. I came into the office where they gathered the necessary information and within one week, yes, one week I had my full social security disability! they were very kind and respectful while asking questions about my disability, ptsd. I'm an OIF army infantry combat veteran. Michael asked how I was doing with the VA. I told him how I was struggling and that the VA kept denying or putting me off. I was beyond hopeless and was ready to give up on a 4 1/2 year appeal for my ptsd. Michael took over my va claim. Within a few months he had me standing in front of a BVA judge! Something that I alone could not accomplish in over 4 years! It took 9 months before they made a final decision on my case. 100% disability! 70% ptsd 30% unaployability. He even got the unaployability backdated to day one of my claim. This greatly impacted my back pay on my claim. Michael kept me well informed through the whole process. He understood my disability and was very accommodating. He was very approachable and always made the environment comfortable. This was huge for me since I could barely go out in public. What Michael Quatrini did for me can't be explained in a review, because not only did he help end my financial struggle, he has changed the future of my family. I know now that my 4 children and my wife will have the life they deserve. My children will have opportunities that I never had. For that I am forever grateful. I will recommend Michael to anyone. Honestly if you are on the fence about using him, have Michael call me and I will tell you my story and answer any questions. Michael is more a friend now than just my lawyer.

Veteran's Benefit Claim
After years of struggling to negotiate the V.A. Claims System with poor results. Mr. Quatrini & his firm took on the case. He thoroughly researched the medical data & the support info supplied by former servicemen supporting our claims. The very same info the V.A. had either denied or ignored for many years. He skillfully presented & resolved our case with positive results. I would refer Michael & his firm to anyone needing legal assistance.

Following an injury at work, we were applying for disability and were referred to you. With the help of Lisa, your firm enabled us to sort through the many details involved in the application. We were treated with respect and are grateful for all the questions you answered and advice you gave. Thank you for helping us through a difficult situation. You were professional, as well as genuinely concerned. We highly recommend your firm. We were fortunate that we found you, and would call upon you again if the need arises.

Highly Recommended Social Security Attorney
Although my benefits were granted several years ago, I am required to complete various forms/questionnaires each year. The Social Security questionnaires can be very intimidating. Michael recognizes the obstacles/difficulties that I face everyday and helped me put my limitations into words. Michael’s understanding & compassion allowed me to answer all questions while retaining my dignity. Michael has represented me since 2010. After speaking with Michael for 5 minutes, I realized Michael’s knowledge & expertise along with his intuitive nature make him wise beyond his years. Michael consistently replies to all my calls/emails & his staff has an in-depth understanding of the law and are capable of answering many of my questions & concerns. I have and will continue to highly recommended Michael V. Quatrini.

Michael allowed me to relax a bit during this stressful time - I always felt that he had things under control and always had my best interest at heart. Questions that I had were explained thoroughly and were responded to within a short period of time. His compassion put me at ease and his complete dedication to my case was obvious.
