Above and beyond to say the least! Attorney Christian Petrucci is an unparalleled, informative and experienced professional.
First of all, I will start off with this.. Attorney Christian Petrucci and his staff are top-notch professionals. I posted my situation here on Avvo, and within 5-10 minutes it was answered. The most informative and helpful was Mr. Petrucci's answer. He offered his help to me and wanted me to contact him so that we could discuss in more detail over the phone. I called him the following day confused and extremely stressed out over my situation, but by the time we ended our First 45 minute conversation I was relieved and informed. What really surprised me were the words he left, "If anything else happens, I don't care what it is; doctor's appointment, meeting at work, work calls you, if you have questions etc, call me right away." (I have not paid him anything at the moment I write this much deserved review.) You want to talk about confidence and instantly feeling like I had someone on my side of the *court*? I'm relatively young and inexperienced with things like this, however I am no fool. Attorney Christian Petrucci is on his "A" game. He is extremely informed, experienced, intelligent, punctual, patient and professional. Literally, everything he said and knew was confirmed and came to fruition. I am no longer feeling worried as though I was a victim, and now know I have a much better grip with my comp claim. I know without a fathom of a doubt I can pick up my phone, call him and have my concerns dealt with; expeditiously and properly. His paralegal was and continues to be most pleasant and informed herself. She was professional and thorough with me and the details of my situation. She relayed messages and communication back and forth whenever either of us were busy. I may add again, the topic of payment and or money was never brought up. I am still dumbfounded at the quality of service I received for something I haven't paid or worked for.. Now I can focus on my health and personal life, focus on recovering and no longer stress over my situation. That alone, is priceless to me. He graciously continues to work with me and wants me to constantly keep him in the loop as to the details of my particular case. I would HIGHLY recommend Attorney Christian Petrucci's services (And his Paralegal) to anyone seeking help related to his line of work. I can assure you personally that you will not be let down!

Much more than just an attorney
Christian is wonderful all around. My husband was injured at work, and not only did Christian walk us through the process, every step of the way but he also went over and above to make sure my husband never lost his dignity. He was EXTREMELY informative no matter the question that was thrown in his direction. His office arranged doctors appointments, handled all the paperwork, and kept in contact on a regular basis. Christian never turned us away if we needed him, even to the extent of calling us while on vacation! We couldn't have gotten as much as we did had we chosen someone else. I HIGHLY recommend this man. He is a blessing to any client who hires him.

Excellence in workers comp law with a deep sense of compassion
Mr. Petrucci is the rare professional who not only has knowledge and experience in his field, but compassion for his clients. He consistently returned my calls and e-mails promptly, and answered my myriad questions thoroughly, and completely. We discussed all of my options, and once we agreed on a course of action, he aggressively pursued my bottom line, fought for it, and won! The compassionate side of him made a very unpleasant situation manageable, and ultimately ended with a satisfactory conclusion. I highly recommend Mr. Petrucci for any workers comp matter with no hesitation, and high kudos. In case you are wondering, we are not related :)

Successful resolution to difficult workman's comp case
Christian assisted us in a difficult workman's compensation case. He was extremely helpful in securing all the pertinent facts and presenting them in such a way as to achieve settlement. It was a contentious situation. He kept us informed and educated as to the options and guided us towards positive resolution.

Very Knowledgeable Philadelphia WC attorney
Christian represented me in my worker's compensation claim with the highest level of professionalism, yet maintaining a very personable relationship. He was readily available to answer any questions that arose throughout the process, often answering the phone himself. E-mail response time was almost as immediate. The way Christian handled my claim displayed what 20+ years of dedication to worker's compensation is able to do. I would recommend him to anyone seeking representation for this subject matter.

"Bravo-Zulu" my friend
It would be an honor and a pleasure to write my testimonial review on the esteemed law practices of Mr. Christian Petrucci. He was actually referred to me by another good attorney. If you ever had to go through any kind of litigation process in your life before. You know that it can be a long, daunting, and stressful process to say the least? The hardest part is trying to convince another person that you are correct about the issue. When, I was first contacted by Mr. Petrucci it was like walking through a field of sunshine. I immediately felt that finally there was a ray of hope at the end of the tunnel. He was able to see both sides of my issue and represent me with the fore-cite, knowledge, passion, and truth to get the job done. But, I think most importantly the dedication representing me and my case. His attention to detail is unmatched in my eyes. Mr. Petrucci keeps you abreast in your case as it progresses up to the very end. He stay's in constant communication with me on a daily bases via, the internet, phone, etc. and he never not once hinder from that task either. I think in today's modern age, communication is a key factor. Without it, a person will be totally lost in the mist of what their doing. If you ever have need of a Workers' Compensation Attorney or any attorney for that matter. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Christian Petrucci, ESQ. He will fight for the needs of all his clients. I will never forget him for his outstanding service. He is truly a "friend" and an "outstanding" attorney. There's a saying we have in the military.."Bravo-Zulu"...Meaning, well done my friend, well done.
