He is the best!
Mike has been my attorney for 8 long years. I have a very difficult case and he has fought for me to get the benefits I deserve. I trust him with all my heart. He is not only your attorney, he is your friend. He explains every step he takes with your case. I'm so glad I chose him to represent me in this difficult case.

Mike Ippoliti is very knowledgeable about the laws for the state of Delaware. His medical experience was very helpful in my case due to the levels of physicians involved.

Absolutely Outstanding Attorney
Michael Ippoliti provides way above average legal services, one reason being because he truly does care about the welfare of his clients. When he is on your side, you have nothing to worry about. He is a high-energy individual who he will keep working extra hard for you until he has achieved the goals that have been set for your case. He is a terrific negotiator, with a brilliant mind. I have come to know him quite well and have put my full faith and trust in him to resolve my legal problems, which have been very challenging and complicated. I am sure that when he took on my case, even he had no idea just how difficult a case it would turn out to be. But that did not scare him off. Quite the opposite, he devoted more time and expertise in order to resolve the issues I was dealing with. I have never heard of any other attorney being so caring and devoted to his clients. He is absolutely THE BEST!

Michael represented me on a work injury, and made sure I received all the benefits I was entitled to, and explained things to me so that I understood them completely. He is kind when he can be, and aggressive when needed. I trust him completely.

Michael R. Ippoliti: Your Fichting Chance to Win Against Workers Compensation
Michael is a lawyer that has not forgotten where he has come from. He can relate to the average person and understand the many life changing events that can occur with a workers compensation case. He listens to your concerns and will not brush you to the side. Michael is very personable and will put you at ease. Even though he comes across as a friend sitting in your backyard, he is ferocious and relentless when it comes to your case. He is not afraid to fight the opposition or the Labor Board. Michael is calculating in his maneuvers to give you the best possible outcome. My case is complicated and ongoing. I have been very satisfied with Michael Ippoliti after four plus years and glad I chose him to represent me after interviewing several other attorneys for my case.
