  • Vincent Louis Ditommaso

    Ed and I worked together as co-counsel on a complex class action. After getting the class certified and defeating a motion to dismiss, Ed worked with me at a mediation to settle the case with each class member receiving substantial monetary compensation. Ed is a very smart and experienced lawyer who works hard for his clients and well with co-counsel. Our firm has referred complex legal malpractice matters to him and consults with him on legal ethics issues because of his substantial experience and competence in that area.
