Dear Mr. Trichilo, I would like to take this opportunity to express my extreme gratitude and appreciation for all your hard work and relentless effort and persistence in pursuing a positive outcome in my legal battle. It was one of the hardest and most emotional situations I have ever been in, and I felt throughout the process you went over and beyond the call of duty to resolve the matter as quickly and fairly as possible. Your confidence and assurance helped me tremendously in coping with the process, yet you were always truthful and forthright. I was always kept in the loop and was educated and informed throughout the lawsuit. Your patience and professionalism were impressive, but your sincere caring and concern were what really set you apart from most attorneys. You couldn’t have been more thorough and accurate, especially since this was complicated and complex in that you had to deal with. Overall, you are truly an anomaly and I will be forever grateful to you. Though I hope no one has to go through what I went through, I will certainly highly recommend you and your law firm if anyone is looking for a top firm.

Ben went above and beyond for me. I had a pretty bad injury and I had never been through anything like this before and he was always there to answer any questions or concerns we had through all of this. When you go through what went through it gets to be a little overwhelming but he was always there to talk me through every step of this process. I always felt like I was his only case (I know I wasn't) but he did anything for me and figure out what we needed to move forward. He had the best team working for me also!!!!

Mr. Trichilo handled my workers compensation case from start to finish.
From day one and throughout the two plus years Mr.Trichilo made me feel like his number one client. He handled all the fillings and correspondences in a timely and professional manner while at the same time keeping me updated on the case as it progressed.
At the end negotiated a very favorable settlement.
