My husband hired Mr. Zicolello to represent him after a motorcycle accident. He was struck by a food delivery vehicle that drove through red light. My husband sustained serious injuries to his right root, ankle and leg. We were encouraged to contact Mr. Zicolello by several members of our community. The office personnel was knowledgeable and pleasant. Mr. Zicolello was available when needed and worked hard to settle my husband's case. He was consistent, persistent, and never settled until we were satisfied. We "won" our case and were awarded what we needed to cover future medical expenses and past hardships we experienced due to the accident. I am confident that he would do the same for any client in his care.

I retained Michael Zicolello to represent my father after a disabling work related accident. Michael was easy to talk with and treated us like family. The case was long in the process as the company where the accident occurred dragged us through many delays. Michael kept us updated every step of the way. The case eventually went to court and found in our favor. The settlement was structured by the law firm so that my father had a consistent income until his death. I also retained Michael on behalf of my brother for the wrongful death of his wife when she was struck by a motorist while she was crossing a street. Michael immediately assisted and handled issues with life insurance and medical expenses that were needed. The case is still ongoing but he has hired investigators and experts and has settled what has been possible while seeking final damages that most likely will end up in court. Michael has provided all the legal support my family has needed arranging for investigators and filing all necessary documents and arranging and attending depositions. He has made the process easier by often times meeting with us in our home, with phone calls and email. He has certainly been present for all proceedings. He has provided advice and direction and general support. I can not stress enough how easy he is to work with. He is easily contacted and when he wasn’t in when we called, he returned calls promptly. He has explained the process and what he is doing for us. He has been patient with us in our grief and numerous questions providing sage advice and realistic answers. I have known Michael since 1994. Over the years he has been there for me when I have had other legal needs such as my will and drafting advance directives and answering legal questions for me as the need has arisen. I feel fortunate that these two life altering situations were handled by him with positive outcomes, but especially his sensitivity to us as a family in time of great need and emotional tumult.

I was badly injured and hospitalized two years ago, which shortly after leaving the military (12 years of active duty). We were confused and worried with what steps needed to be taken to ensure I was taken care of (medically, financially and legally). We sought out a few local lawyers, met with each to get a feel for who had the most concern for my case. By concern I mean genuine care of my well being both then when it happened and for future need. Mike and his staff by far exceeded not only every other consult, by my personal desires for what I wanted in an attorney. He was patient, sincere, kind, knowledgeable of exactly what was going on and what to expect - during the initial consult and throughout our entire time together as client and attorney. His demeanor was calm yet businesslike, confident yet controlled, concerned and professional.
Every time I called the office to speak to him or his staff I was kindly greeted and asked how I was doing, or if I needed anything else. I was always kept in the loop of what was happening with my case, my billers and the entire situation. Wether it was an email, a text, a phone call or a meeting, the entire staff at this firm are 100% on it. They are all professional and mean business but kind and caring. I never waited on return calls or information. After my case, Mike and I continue to have a relationship regarding my case (any future issues or problems were to develop) and for any other need. I have and will continue to refer this office, staff and lawyer out.
I am so pleased I met and hired Mike. He was able to get 100% of my settlement and it was done in a short time manner.
