Top Choice!
I wanted to take the time to say thank you to Ms. Christine Burke and her team at Karpf, Karpf and Cerutti. I had a employment issue due to politics in the State of NJ. After searching for the right attorney and getting turned away time after time, I was ready to give up. I had no more fight in me. That day I chose to give up, I had a rep from the firm call me and set up my appointment. I missed the appointment due to just being tired. I continued to be discriminated against at my place of employment. I recieved a 2nd appointment. I have never met a more professional and compassionate team of lawyers. THANK YOU ALL. After taking all my information they stepped in another room. I was praying! Once they came back and said they would take my case I almost cried like a baby. Due to their hard work and diligence my case settled fast. I was even granted my position back as well. So when the other lawyers play politics. Karpf, Karpf and Cerutti wont. Thank you all again. Ms. Burke you are a blessing in disguise. I appreciate you.

Excellent representation
I had a very good experience with the attorneys at Karpf, Karpf and Cerutti. Christine Burke was savvy, professional, responsive, sympathetic, but realistic, and provided excellent guidance and representation. She was able to resolve matters to my satisfaction and I really enjoyed working with her. Andrew Olcese also provided excellent representation. I was very glad to find these folks. Thank you!
