    For over a year now I have trusted John DeGirolamo with my personal referrals. When John is on the case I know he will be well-informed, effective, efficient, and tough if necessary. He is also quickly establishing himself as an authority in the federal arena, recently authoring and publishing Plea For Mercy: The Anatomy of the Federal Plea.

    I endorse this lawyer. John is very knowledgeable in criminal and family law. He is always willing to help and enjoys helping his clients. He really went out of his way to help a client of mine in a family law matter that was approaching trial. He is a skilled trial lawyer and I highly recommend him.
