Outstanding Representation
When we were hit by a drunk driver while sitting at a stoplight on a Sunday evening, we had no idea how many medical issues we would have to face from the impact. It was Christine who came to see us and from that first meeting, we knew we had someone special in our corner. Christine and her staff were always available to answer any of our questions or concerns. Through our many conversations she was always positive and reassuring. She knows how to navigate all the legal, medical, and insurance issues involved in a personal injury case. Christine negotiated an extremely beneficial settlement for us, and we highly recommend her.

Christine Lasalvia WAYYYY exceeded my every expectation. I will never forget the call I received from her regarding my settlement. Christine gave me a number that blew me away, she went on to say if we stick to our guns (in so many words) we could settle for even more. It couldn't have been more than a couple day's later she informed me of an offer we BOTH should consider. Personal injury like all lawsuits take time, they require patience and fortitude, in it to win it. Christine doesn't know this but I was practically in tears when she quoted me my final settlement. I thanked her wholeheartedly. holding back emotion, trying to stay cool because I NEVER expected anything close to the amount. She is an approachable, easy to follow, seasoned counselor who gets it done. With experience and a conquering drive, there is no one better. I enthusiastically recommend Christine Lasalvia to represent anyone going through a time as sensitive as a personal injury.

Settled case several other lawyers walked away from
I fell and broke a bone three years ago at a restaurant I frequented for many years. Because I did not allow immediate recording of my statement, the property insurance company ultimately declined to cover anything, even medical bills my own insurance would not cover since it happened on another's property. I spoke to several lawyer friends and other PI firms who all said my case would go nowhere; and with them, it may have. Without much hope, I was referred to Ms. Lasalvia who at least listened to the entire story. While I knew I may get nowhere, she gradually went through every step from requesting an initial settlement, then filing suit, gathering documents, eliciting details, coordinating depositions and even had the case scheduled for a hearing and trial. A very fair settlement was reached, I won't retire on it, but bills were covered and the outcome was more than anything I expected. She was persistent, professional, kept me informed (which is not always a strength in the legal community) and provided great advice on how I should approach my case and what reasonable expectations should be. I am grateful to have been a client and will refer others often.

Christine is the best at what she does. She will go that extra mile to make sure that you are satisfied as a client. She is very fair and fights for her clients. I wouldn’t trust anyone else other then Christine with any type of personal injury case. She also has an excellent as well as caring staff; Always keeps you informed as well as updated on your case at all times. They’re the greatest!!!

I was very pleased with my attorney Christine Lasalvia. She always kept me informed of what I needed to do to help her with my case. I was pleased with the outcome of her hard work because it was a difficult situation and she was very successful in getting me a nice settlement.

Excellent experience
I just recently had a case finalized by Christine after it sat with another firm for two years with no action. It was a highway speed, serious collision (life flight) with the other party being at fault. Once it became Christine's case, I was very happy with the speed at which things started happening. This lady is very knowledgeable, aggressive, and thorough in every aspect of the suit from beginning to end. She was very pleasant in all of our dealings, and has great connections for any kind of expert medical opinions someone may need. We talked about expectations early on in the proceedings and I was happy with where the case would likely be resolved. Ultimately, she ended up beating my initial expectations which was the best possible outcome. If I were ever in need of a personal injury lawyer again, I wouldn't hesitate to contact Christine.

Not Recommended!
I hired La Salvia two years ago to handle a car accident claim. The other party was cited as being at fault and I sustained neck and back injuries as a result. Christine refuses to accept the fact that the Cleveland Clinic does NOT write reports and their doctors DO NOT testify in court. She was told to hire an expert witness which in my case she refused to accept that fact. I had to release her from the case before she damaged my claim and my reputation with the court.

Response from Christine Lasalvia November 4, 2019
I respectfully disagree with this comment. I work with the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and obtain reports on behalf of my clients on a regular basis. I have also called Cleveland Clinic doctors as witnesses at trial. The decision as to whether to provide a report is up to each individual doctor, but it does sometimes take patience and perseverance. I work hard to obtain medical evidence for all my clients.

Bad Experience
I was introduced to Christine by a prominent Cleveland PI attorney who pursued my case and then decided to park it with someone less experienced and with fewer resources than needed as he obviously decided it was not as lucrative when his partner listened to facts I had shared earlier. The case was complicated and frustrating with multiple accidents, complex injuries (including TBIs), and the oddest pair of defendants ever. Christine was generally good natured and supportive, but she did not seem to have the resources to do the case justice. She ultimately walked away less than a month before the first case needed to be file without ever really giving a good reason. The case filecwhen it found a new home was missing not only detailed medical records but yearsxof tax returns and other items. It is still hard to understand what happened. I think she might be fine for a simple PI case, but I would look for an attorney or firm with more resources and a verifiable record if your case is more complicated. And expect to do 99% of the work.
