A Champion!
I appreciate how Mr Mazzela fought hard for me with my auto accident case, and was able to accomplish getting what I felt was deserved and more. Mr Mazzela was always available when I needed him during the process of my case. When there were moments that the odds seemed against us, Mr Mazzela was very encouraging and supportive with his "can-do" attitude keeping me in the game. I appreciate his services tremendously and would recommend him to help my friends or family in need.

This Lawyer is amazing! No question too big for the office just call!!
The minute I made my first appointment with Mr. MAZZELA I was nervous but the whole office made me feel comfortable and TIM MAZZELA made me feel right at home and I could tell him anything I had a very confusing case and it was very nervous and thought it would take A lot of work on my part but they take all the worry and paperwork and make you feel like you’re there number one client thank you so much to Mr. MAZZELA and all the others that work for him I love this office and I would recommend him to anybody with even a small problem that doesn’t seem like a lawyer needs to handle. They now feel like family to me and it didn’t take long at all to settle my case and it was painless and worry free thank you so much for having an office staff that is as kind as the attorney!

I got my life back.
My experience with Tim was nothing short of a miracle. I was t- boned on my motorcycle doing 50 by a careless driver. I contacted Tim the next day, and he immediately started the process of getting me where I needed to be. Within the first week I was heading to doctors/chiropractor appointments, getting thoroughly checked out, and was starting to get my peace of mind back. He handled everything that had to do with my case with professionalism and treated me with the upmost respect. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer than Timothy Mazzela!

Great Choice
If you're looking for an attorney who connects not just with facts but with you as a person, then search no further! Mr. Mazzela has handled car accident cases and other personal injury cases not just for me but my family members as well. He takes the time to connect person to person and also contributes to worthy community causes as well. Mr. Mazzela is family focused and does business well!

Tim is the best!
Tim helped me on my motorcycle accidents and I always recommend him to every friend i know. Not only is he a great lawyer he’s also a really good person. The office staff is always polite whenever you call in or enter the office. He always makes sure he’s available to you and it’s very personal and not like other places you go to where they don’t take any time or seem to care about your case at all and you start feeling like just another number. He makes you feel like family from the moment you meet him. He will always be the person i call for anything and has become a good friend over the years that i still keep in touch with whenever i have a question. Btw thank you Tim for everything you do and have done for me. -Peter C.

Pickup-Truck T-bones my car results in a back injury
On April 15, 2016, I suffered a tragic car accident. I was hit by a pick-up truck. The truck hit four other cars before making its way to me at 80 mph on a 35 mph road. The truck T-boned my Cadillac CTS, spun me off the road and caused my car to hit a light pole smashing my back rear door. I was very lucky and blessed the light pole did not hit my driver door; I fear I would have been crushed by the speed and the impact. I was referred to Timothy Mazzella through family members. They told me how hard Timothy worked and that he would not settle for less. I was told that Timothy frequently kept in contact and informed them of the case updates. I choose Timothy as my lawyer because of the communication and dedication he put in with my family members case. When I first met with Timothy, I felt comfortable and welcomed. I did not feel like a careless number to him; I was a person and a friend. He treated me with respect and gave his full attention and answered all my questions and concerns. Timothy always returned my calls and made sure my concerns where met. I honestly got very lucky choosing Timothy to represent me on my case. Timothy represented me and dealt with all the demands and heavy paper work I, myself, could not handle due to working conditions. The event that transpired on April 15, 2016 was not planned or expected but I’m grateful my family members introduced me to Timothy Mazzella. The person that hit my car was under the influence and stole the car that hit myself and four other cars. Today, I can say we won the case. I’m glad I choose Timothy Mazella to represent me, with the insurance company, and handle all of the legal paper work. I’m very happy to know if something like this happens to me again, I can always count on Timothy. Thank you,
