A+++ Lawyers And Staff!!
I am very pleased with how I was treated at the Brown & Roberto Law Firm! My lawyer, Andrew Roberto, and his Paralegal, Lisa Basler, showed complete professionalism and attention to detail, when working with me on my disability case. They walked me through the process every step of the way and put my mind at ease by answering all of my questions. It was a lengthy process, but Mr. Roberto made himself available in office or on the phone when I had questions or concerns. Mr. Roberto took the time to prepare me for my case. I felt confident and assured by his belief in me and my case. By the way, I won my case! I highly recommend Mr, Andrew Roberto!!!!

Excellent lawyer you'll ever find!!
I have nothing bad to say about these wonderful people!! They are all very respectful, caring and friendly.. They are all very knowledgeable, understanding and they know how to get it done.. Attorney Mr. Andrew Roberto and his paralegal Mrs. Lisa worked with me on my case in getting disability benefits due to my chronic severe anxiety, panic attacks and my learning disability I had since I was a child.. The best decision I made was to choose them to represent me at my hearing!! They are the best!!! Take my word for it-- If anyone needs a trustworthy, caring and very knowledgeable lawyer, this lawyer's office is the right place!!! I said to my mom if I ever needed a lawyer for anything ever and he helps for a certain case, I will definitely choose Mr. Andrew Roberto again; even if I had to travel many miles, I will!!! They are that good, believe me!!!

Extremely Grateful for Andrew Roberto
I struggled with seizures for years and was denied my social security disability. I chose this office for their dedication and ongoing service to the Epilepsy Foundation. Andrew and his staff were extremely responsive and very detail-oriented making sure I understood everything involved. They expeditiously responded to all of my questions; they also explained all options available. His staff also helped me find resources I was unable to find on my own. I am certain I would not have received my benefits had I gone elsewhere or tried to continued to appeal on my own.
