The Best in My Book!
I was in a terrible motorcycle accident in 2012 that resulted in permanent injuries. I found Scott Palumbo quite by accident in 2013 and was so glad that I did, as the original attorney I was with, lost his license to practice law! Right from the start, you could tell that you were dealing with a talented family man who is passionate about his work, and who has principals and integrity. I immediately knew that I was in capable, experienced hands, which instantly put my mind at ease after the experience I had with the prior attorney. Over the last couple of years I have gotten to know Scott & all I can tell you is that he is an exceptional "one in a million" professional and is a man of substance. He is detailed, trustworthy, provides expert guidance, informative through out the entire process, gets results and most importantly puts your interests well ahead of his own. I will always be truly grateful to both Scott and his extremely competent Legal Assistant Susan and consider myself very blessed for having found him.

Outstanding Attorney and Person
It was a privilege to have Scott Palumbo as my attorney. I was involved in a motorcycle accident causing hospitalization and rehabilitation. To find quality representation, I asked my mother to contact her friend who is the City Attorney of my hometown. She recommended that I contact Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo. To sum up my experience, everything went smoothly and I always knew what to expect. Scott took the time to answer my questions thoroughly and gave me a sense of ease. It was very easy to contact Scott when I needed something. I find Scott's character honest, knowledgeable, and confident. I am more than happy with the results. I highly recommend Scott to represent cases involving motorcycle accidents.

"the Michael Jordan of Trial Attorneys"
Hopefully you will never need the services Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo offer, but if you do you will not find better representation than Scott Palumbo and staff. He specializes in representing catastrophic and life changing injury cases. He is the Michael Jordan of Trial Attorneys, no joke. My case went 3 years and finally settled days prior to trial. During that time I watched Mr. Palumbo in front of the judge and was truly impressed at his ability to think 12 steps ahead of the defense. He is a family man with high standards and exceptional character. He is a straight shooter and will tell you how it is. He has great support staff that communicates very well and doesn't miss a thing.

Scott Palumbo won a multi-million dollar lawsuit for our case
My fiancé was in a catastrophic motorcycle accident in 2003. He was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury and was in a coma. I was not sure what to do. I was referred to Mr. Scott Palumbo by a family member. Scott accepted our case immediately. From the first time I spoke to Mr. Palumbo while my fiancée was in the hospital, Mr. Palumbo was able to immediately understand the facts of the situation and provide sound advice about how to proceed. I realized from the start that I was dealing with an extremely responsive and knowledgeable person and this gave me comfort during a very difficult time in my life. From this first conversation and over the next 7 years it took to resolve the case, Mr. Palumbo demonstrated a very strong understanding of the facts and law of this very complicated case. His knowledge of the law and court procedures was outstanding. He was always immediately available to answer questions or provide feedback via e-mail, phone calls or face-to-face visits. I would recommend Mr. Palumbo to anyone. Not only is he a great attorney, but is also a person that has a caring heart and has his clients’ best interests in mind.
