Amazing person service
Jake and his team have been a godsend in a terrible and terrifying time in my life. I was referred to him by my friend's mom and he truly handled my case with ease and got me the best outcome in a scary situation than I could have asked for. He not only made the process easy but offered sound advice that went above and beyond what is required for a lawyer. He really wants the best for his clients. I couldn't have asked for anyone better.

Excellent service totally recommended
Mr. Cecere was very attentive and to my calls and inquiries relating to my personal injury case. He kept me informed on what was occurring with my case and did not just hand over my case to a paralegal. His experience and knowledge help me obtain a very favorable settlement. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a good and effective personal injury lawyer.

Poised and honest Jake Cecere
Jake Cecere has shown me what it means to have the right attorney by your side. He remains calm and professional. He just won his 3rd auto accident case for me on 7/24/22. He believed that I was not at fault for the accident and remained strong on his questions for the defendant made him stumble with nervousness. The judge saw right through the well rehearsed statements made by the defendant as elaborate and not factual. He took a picture at the road where the accident happened. It spoke a thousand words. "The Bus" a passenger bus traveling to the left of a passenger car. That was the award winning picture. GREAT JOB!

Car Accident
I wanted to thank you for the excellent work you and your team did as a law firm. I am blown away by your integrity and all the hard work you’ve done. Your legal expertise and professionalism went above and beyond my expectations throughout the course of my case. It was a pleasure to work with attorney Jake Cecere. Mr. Cecere is a very attentive attorney who pays attention to details, listens to his clients and gets to know the case he is working on. Mr. Cecere is significantly more skilled and works very hard to ensure the success of your case. He was always prompt returning my calls and kept me up to date and informed. Mr. Cecere and his team are pretty detailed oriented, organized, flexible and friendly. I was extremely happy with his services. I would highly recommend Spigelman & Cecere, LLC to anyone looking to hire a personal injury lawyer, car accident, or wrongful death attorney. Thank you again Mr. Cecere!

Personal Injury Settlement
Jake saw me through the end of what had been a three year journey to pursue an injury claim from a motor vehicle accident. He was easily accessible, friendly, and helpful throughout the entire process, always answering any questions I had in a timely and thorough manner. Thanks to his work, we were able to settle my case without much fanfare. I highly recommend Jake to anyone looking for a personal injury attorney in the DMV.

Couldn't Ask For More
Jake was everything I could ask for in a lawyer. He's responsive, communicates your options well, and is honest when giving you the pro's and con's of your choices. As a client, you want someone who will help you understand the process and the likelihood of the different outcomes. Jake does all of this and more. If I ever need a PI attorney again, I would turn to him again without question.

Outstanding advocate
Mr. Cecere helped out on an insurance case where members of my family were hit by someone w/ inadequate insurance. He was informative, kept me aware of the areas that were subject to interpretation as well as giving us clear expectations as to what was likely to occur. Mr. Cecere thought of avenues to pursue that were beyond our expectation and did a tremendous job looking out for our interests, but also looking out for justice. We could not have been more than happy with his service.
