If you are looking for the Best Dam Layer look no further than Christina T Novajosky @ O'Malley & Langan Law offices
If you are looking for the Best Dam Layer look no further than Christina T Novajosky @ O'Malley & Langan Law offices My name is Joseph M. Percoco and this is not another B.S. Review story. As a long term driver and valued employee of Fed Ex freight making over six figures a year who never once took a vacation in over 10 years and has earned yearly safety awards as a safe driver with zero accidents where I would have to drive 648 miles each day awoke one morning not able to return to work and was denied unemployment by my employer and was also denied workers compensation. I can not go into detail as this is an ongoing case but I must tell you that I was turned down by other prominent law firms and was told that this case would be to hard to win and they were not interested because the amount of man hours that would have to be put in would be grater than the end result. My case was rejected by Lenahan & Dempsey , Merwinw Hanyon & Kaspszyk and a handful of others that you see on T.V. When I met with Christina she told me that the case was in fact very complicated but she was up to the challenge because for her Righteousness is more Important than Money & Trust and honor will always be placed above the Dollar. Christina beat Fed Ex's hired gun every single time in court winning me unemployment, workers compensation and Social Security disability. At one point I actually felt bad for Fed Ex's attorney as he was getting frustrated and chewed out by the judge. Christina is not only one of the best attorneys she truly cares about her clients, Christina would call me at home on her days off to see how I was feeling and if my wife and I needed anything. She was always there to return my phone call or email. If not for Christina Novajosky at O'Mally & Langan we would have lost our home that we worked so hard for.
