difficult case with a great outcome
Many other lawers would not have taken my case, because they believed that the outcome would be good. Vincent understood that I had suffered greatly, and deserved a chance for legal justice. The case took about 4 years to complete, with vincent and his collegues working constantly on my behalf. In the end the results showed the hard work vincent and his staff worked for me.

Considerate & Patient
I had never been in an automobile accident and a family member recommended Mr. Petrosino. He was kind, considerate and explained everything that was going to happen. He made a difficult situation easier for me and handled it professionally and expeditiously.
