Major Home Renovation
My wife and I hired Brian Battaglia to represent us in a terrible law suit against a contractor who ruined our home and cause major flooding issues, during a major remodeling effort. We ended up, based on contractual agreement, going through mediation with the contractor and their insurance company. Brian was great, extremely professional but truly cared about us, did not miss any details in presenting the truth and the facts, and managed the opposition in a professional, calm manor. Outcome: We were fully compensated for our legal fees and the insurance company agreed to have the problem, caused by the contractors, fully repaired. Brian was outstanding in his representation of our problem, I would definitely use him again if we ever needed an attorney again.

He was refered to me by an old friend....
He was referred to handle a case for me. Since, I can ask for any legal advice, done as it was promised, on time, my phone call being answered, calling back even after office closed for hours, He is THE guy I can count on anytime.

I have utilized Mr. Battaglia's services since 1988 in several areas of expertise, both in business and private dealings. He is always patient, responsive, timely; and very good at keeping me informed and up-to-date on my cases by both phone and mail. I think "trustworthy" would be a key trait that would have me recommend him to others.
