Review
My name is Matthew Hammock.I just want people to know about the excellent representation I had from Attorney Cardamone.From start to finish I felt valued as a client.The staff also made sure I was valued.He is truly a super star attorney who has your best interest and back.No question you ask will not be answered in full and as a perk he explains things in a way you can learn something about law.His staff is second to none.I highly recommend Attorney Cardamone to help you with your legal affairs

WC case
My experiance with Mike Cardamone was great. I have turned to him after a long search for help while dealing with work related injury. Doing it on my own was causing lots of frustration and feeling helpless. Finding the right attorney who will take my case and understand me ( as I was so lost ) was a long process Mike was IT ! His expertise and willingness to help me to understand the WC process is beyond any words. His is simply GREAT ! Definitely GO TO person. He took my case to his heart and did a great job. Took time in his busy schedule to explain things to me, made sure I am in good hands, that was what I needed the most: feel that I am not alone, well taken care. We got a nice setttlement too. Michael, thank you so much for your help !

Best Attorney on East Coast
Michael Cardamone took me thru my case step by step.He kept me pre-informed of what to do in certain situations so that some insurance adjuster would not get over on me because of my lack of legal knowledge.Michael Cardamome cared about my health and future.And of course he litigated to win my settlement. Of more than I ever thought would be possible..If you or anyone in your family is injured while working there is only one Attorney. In Pa you want..Michael Cardamone.FORMER CLIENT DECEMBER 2012...MJR......

an advocate for injured workers
Following my termination from work due to a permanent work related injury and unable to perform the full duties of an R.N. I needed an advocate for injured workers, I choose Mr. Michael Cardamone, for his professional attitude, honesty and knowledge of the processes and procedures of the legal system as a major force in selecting him. It wasn’t about money but “how can I help you with your difficult situation”. He continues to support my case with positive advice through the maze of workman’s compensation issues reaching successful conclusions for my family and me. Thank You! Mr. Michael Cardamone…………..Earl

Michael is constantly getting favorable results for his clients and his clients absolutely love his dedication and service.
