  • Peter J Bartinik JR

    I worked with Stuart Carpey on a personal injury case involving a serious injury to the face, several smashed teeth, facial cuts, and surgery to repair the teeth and face. The case was hotly contested on liability. We also dealt with issues from a pre-existing related medical condition. The defendant was an odd bunch who required tact to deal with. Additionally, in order to present our best case we need cooperation from the surgeon who was located in Philadelphia (Stuart's home area), and Stuart was able to smooth him over to help ensure his cooperation and involvement. In all respects, Stuart was a pleasure to deal with, and an invaluable asset. We achieved a great result. The client was very happy. I highly recommend him.
