Practice areas
  1. Trucking accident
    If you are involved in a trucking accident, you may benefit from the services of a trucking accident lawyer. Trucking accident lawyers know the dynamics of truck crashes and can identify and weigh all the possible factors which may have been involved. Tired truckers falling asleep at the wheel can cause trucking accidents, as can car drivers who abruptly change lanes without signaling.

    44 years, 50 cases

  2. Car accident

  3. Defective and dangerous products
    When you are injured by a poorly designed or poorly made product, or by a product that should have carried a warning label, you may benefit from the services of a defective and dangerous products lawyer. Many drugs, including the arthritis drug Vioxx and diet aids containing Phenylpropanolamine, are considered dangerous products, as are some medical devices (heart defibrillators) and ordinary appliances (space heaters). Asbestos and tobacco are also considered inherently dangerous.

    49 years, 75 cases

  4. Personal injury
    A personal injury lawyer works with clients who have suffered a physical or emotional injury, usually by accident or mistake. For example, if you are in a car accident or are the victim of a botched surgery, a personal injury attorney can help. They know how the insurance claim process works, they know what evidence to gather, and they know how to calculate and present a claim for damages. Many personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency basis, which means they get paid only if you do

I have used Greg for several cases. He is extremely professional, understands the issues and responds with advice I can understand. Negotiates a very fair settlement and is prepared to go to court if necessary, but as a last resort. I appreciated his openness and value his advice. If I have an issue in the future, I will go to him again.

Client re
I have been involved in an estate settlement for the last four years. It has been one of the most difficult and stressful times in my life. Greg and his staff always made me feel like everything would be alright. He would answer my questions. They responded to my case quickly. Overall I was satisfied with their services.

Compassionate and efficient estate settlement.
Greg Cusimano was extremely helpful to me in finalizing the estate of my late husband, Colonel Donald P. Kelly, Jr. Greg was kind and understanding at a time of great sorrow for me and for my family. I never felt pressured to do any of the required documents to settle the estate. Greg and his staff showed great patience toward me as I filled out the many documents required to finalize the estate. I would highly recommend the firm of Cusimano, Roberts, Knowles & Mills, LLC. Marguerite

"Greg is the epitome of a trial lawyer. He has been representing people injured by the wrongdoing of others since he got out of law school in 1968. Greg is known nationwide in the plaintiff's trial bar as a champion for the little guy. Fifty years from now, plaintiff's lawyers will be talking about the jury bias research that Greg and David Wenner conducted. I am proud to count him as a friend."

"Greg is not only one of the most respected trial lawyers in the United States, but he is also a gentleman of the highest order. In fact, he may be Atticus Finch reincarnate.
