  • Salvatore Joseph Sicuso

    I have known Brett now for years. He is a fellow lawyer in my community with a stellar reputation. He is extremely well known and well like and respected in the legal community. I had an interesting case a while ago and he agreed to meet with me and offer help and documents which were extremely helpful. He did so without regard to his time or whether he actually benefited at all. Those documents and his brilliant legal theories made all the difference in the world in my case (and subsequent similar cases). He helped me and my client achieve a result that was not possible without him. Working together with him on that an other cases proves to me he is an excellent attorney (though I know he has a great reputation) and what being an attorney should really be about. Hire him with extreme confidence or send him a referral. You won't be sorry!
