Wish I would have called Peter sooner
I spoke with Peter, after other attorneys had refused to take my case. He was very knowledgeable and understanding towards my situation. He didn't shy away from going up against an employer that scared the other attorneys. I have been very pleased with all of his work and commitment towards my case this far. He is professional, helpful and very easy to communicate with.

Small Business Help
Was very responsive and quickly took care of drafting documentation for a small business. Did more than just check the box to get a task done, Peter also provided guidance and information on recent laws to be aware of when hiring and training employees which was greatly appreciated.

Settled Case
I hired Mr. LaSorsa to help me with a discrimination and sexual harassment suit. He was always available to talk and answered all of my questions thoroughly. Eventually, my case was settled. Mr. LaSorsa made sure that during this entire process I was kept informed, and up to date with my proceedings. I now feel like I can finally move on with my life, and I would highly recommend him.

Nice Advice and Consultation
I called the office and was able to speak directly to Mr. LaSorsa and he was able to provide insight into my situation. Although, I didn't hire him it was only because he was able to clarify my situation without the need to his firms help. I appreciate that he didn't try to take my money and was helpful and considerate. Thank you.
