Testimonial for Michele Bartoli Cain law firm
I want to advise anyone who has ever dealt with a law firm, that Bartoli-Cain Law was , to me, the most aggressive and perfect firm regarding my case. The knowledge of the dental procedures performed on me was unbelievable. Michele was prepared for any question or problem that was handed her. She was not only knowledgeable with the subject but treated me like a person and always very sensitive to my needs. I would recommend the firm of Bartoli-Cain to anyone who is seeking the "Best".

Tenacity and Professionalism Personified
If you are seeking a top-flight attorney to handle a dental malpractice suit, I strongly recommend you consider Michelle Bartoli-Cain. When I first considered filing suit for a dental injury I discovered Michelle and was immediately impressed by her professional approach to my situation. She thoroughly researched the unique aspects of my case and began a well planned approach towards achieving a favorable settlement with the defendants. I was aware that most suits settled prior to trial; however, my confidence grew with the realization that Michelle was prepared to go to trial should that have become necessary. As time passed I was referred to several expert witnesses who supported our assertion of negligence and characterized Michelle as a "tenacious bull dog" who probably knows as much or more about dental implant injuries than most dentists. As expert after expert expressed their very favorable opinion of Michelle's abilities I became more and more confident that we would prevail at trial or extract a generous settlement from the defendant. My faith in Michelle's abilities was substantiated time after time as I watched her during depositions. It quickly became apparant that she knew every aspect of my case and was much better prepared and considerably more knowledgeable about nerve injuries than the defendant's attorneys. Ultimately, my case was heard by a former Virginia Supreme Court Justice during non-binding arbitration and we prevailed after several days of negotiations. I received a very favorable settlement that included nearly all of my expenses and a six-figure award. It was a lengthy battle but at every step of the process my spirits were buoyed by Michelle's calm and professional approach. I can wholeheartedly recommend Michelle and support several professional publications' assertions that she is one of the best dental malpractice attorneys on the East Coast. Should you hire her you won't be disappointed.
