Phenomenal *
Mr. Bert Miano has beyond superseded any type of expectation I could have ever had upon working with him. Through out the entire process, I not only felt he was always giving me his full attention but also compassion and full support. He is extremely knowledgeable and delivers in a way that helps you feel like you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I actually randomly stumbled upon him and beyond grateful to have an attorney that exceeds beyond his job and genuinely cares for you and your situation. I will be forever thankful and sing his praises for the endless support, efforts and time he gave me. If you want the BEST ATTORNEY and experience in already a trying time pick this guy !

Reviewi for Bert Miano
I have had many legal questions in the past several years that Mr. Miano was always able to answer to my satisfaction. I am not certain there is a dilemma he is not willing or able to approach with compelling results. I recommend him to anyone who has need for a competent, diligent, friendly and approachable attorney.
