This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Age Discrimination/Retaliation
Laura Mattiacci, Console Mattiacci Law, participated in my in my lawsuit during the trial preparation phase of my case in age discrimination and retaliation case against my former employer. Along with the my attorney, Rahul Munshi, she served as trial attorney in federal court in a jury trial, which ended with a verdict in my favor. Honestly, I was deceived by her sweet and gentle manner, with which I was familiar that was outside of the court room. The court room persona, which she embodied at the trial took me by surprise and I was counting my lucky stars for not having to be cross-examined by a skillful, knowledgeable and assertive litigator. Rahul Munshi was my attorney in the preliminary phase, the discovery period and the court trial, a four plus years process which ended in my favor. I highly recommend Laura, Rahul and Stephen, as one of the plaintiffs represented by Console Mattiacci Law because I got the support of the firm on "Team Ruth."

Client Review
I hired Console Law to represent me in a C.E.P.A. claim. Laura Mattiacci was a part of the team that represented me in court and she did a fantastic job. The trial took place over five days and Ms. Mattiacci was the lead litigator. During this process and the trial period she remained professional, engaged and very supportive of me as her client. My case is in appeal and Console Law is representing that matter as well. I would highly recommend Mrs. Mattiacci and the Console Law team.

Response from Laura Mattiacci June 14, 2013
We obtained a verdict of $1.78 million plus attorneys fees and costs, which should bring the total judgment to well over $2.0 million. The verdict included a unanimous jury award of $1.5 million in punitive damages.

Noise Violation
After I was wrongfully accused in a noise violation case Laura not only defended me she researched the illegality of the "animal house" law perpetuated by SIC police and other resort areas throughout the country! She was prepared to present her case (a guaranteed W) in NJ Supreme Court. Her legal dynamic was so feared the prosecuting attorney withdrew his charge prior to higher court and I was exonerated.

Response from Laura Mattiacci April 12, 2013
Representing those wrongfully cited for noise violations is not my normal area of practice. However, I took this case because what happened here was wrong. I believed the noise ordinance of Sea Isle City was unconstitutionally vague and arbitrary, leading many people to incur substantial fines without due process. After filing an appeal brief with the Superior Court of New Jersey challenging the law as unconstitutional, the Prosecutor withdrew the charges and the fine against my client was eliminated. - Laura Mattiacci

Laura is definitely the attorney you want in your corner!
She represented me in a Civil Rights/Wrongful Termination case and I can't say enough positive things about her. Laura was always professional, extremely well prepared and responsive. She was a tremendous advocate for my cause and never let any impediments imposed by the courts or opposing counsel to deter her.

Superb Trial Attorney
From our first session, it was clear to me that Laura's “art” was her ability to paint a picture about why I was suing to a group of eight strangers in whose hands my fate rested. And she did exactly that. In addition to these persuasive skills, Laura is a great coach, who worked tirelessly with me to present myself in the best light at my trial, and make certain these eight jurors liked and believed me, without hesitation. So, she knows the law, can tell your story with clarity and passion, and minimize your fear of the trial experience. What else could you ask for?

More Than Attorney
Laura was more then our Attorney, she representated us like a friend, she was always there for our million and one questions through out the case. She made us feel comfortable through out the proceedings and we always felt that we were in capable hands. Words can not express the gratitude, thankfulness and appreciation for all that she did for us by representing us. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who may need representation in an employment case.
