Messaged on further appeal
I reached out to Mr. Russo through avvo on how to proceed with an appeal on a employment issue. Mr. Russo took the time to read the court decision and offer his opinion at no cost to me. I would recommend Mr. Russo’s law firm and would use them if I have a issue in the future.

Best in the Business
Peter is the utmost professional. He has helped my family on several occasions and I have been so impressed by his vast knowledge of all aspects of the law. He will point you in the right direction and counsel you as to what each next step will entail. He is also very heavily involved in Community organizations and has given his time and dedication to Jump Street for over 15 years. A true professional and gentleman.

I wish to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to Attorney Peter J. Russo and his colleagues at the Law Offices of Peter J. Russo PC for their hard work, expertise, persistence, dedication and expert advise throughout the course of my legal proceedings. Attorney Russo is a superb attorney who is always willing to listen and provide excellent counsel throughout the most trying times of my case. I was extremely impressed by the way he handled opposing counsel -- with the utmost professionalism -- always working in my best interest! I will always be grateful to Attorney Russo for the kindness shown me during this ordeal.

Gives new meaning to "Time is of the essence"
Peter got to work right away, he dove right in only asking relevant questions to my needs. He got back to me quickly, he also provided reasons for each item he advised me on and was not afraid to tell me his opinion nor did he hesitate to remind me about any risks that I was taking. THIS GUY IS AWESOME!!!

If you need Council for an unemployment case, Peter Russo is your Lawyer.
I was recommended to the law offices of Peter Russo from another restaurant employee. I had an unemployment case do to being fired over false statements from a customer, and my employer took his advise without questioning me. Peter reviewed my case , and didn't take long to realize that I defiantly had a case. We went to the hearing. My employer brought 4 witnesses with him to testify. It was just Peter and Myself. He reviewed the facts, and objected to all of their falsehoods. It didn't take long for the referee to realize who was in the right. I very much appreciate everything Peter and his firm did for me. He and his firm were worth every CENT!!!! I highly recommend him.
