My legal team was patient and very professional. At first my expectations were unrealistic but Raymond help me to stay focused... It was a long arduous process up's & down's... He gave me 100% of his time, all the time.. It's been 6 months since my case settled and I am truly happy with the settlement.. In the core strong case won... This was an experience I will never forget.. Raymond Panzarella is hard working & honest.. I highly recommend him as a personal injury Lawyer...

Excellent Defence Attorney
This is honestly the best attorney in Southeast Arizona. I have hired him twice, hopefully won't again but he's a true lifesaver. Twice for me.
