Good lawyer
I was in a bicycle accident in Seattle. The road had a sand patch in the bike path. The city and the construction company tried to wear us down by dragging things out but Pino stuck with me through thick and thin. We ended up getting a better settlement than I expected. Everyone at the office was friendly, efficient and low key. I feel that I could not have had better representation.

Backed the little guy against the insurance company
When I was involved in a motor vehicle accident, Pellegrino was incredibly helpful getting a resolution with an opposing insurance company. Because I did not have insurance on my small motor scooter, the other driver's insurance company tried to claim I was responsible for the accident. Pino agreed with my take on it, and fought hard to get them to take responsibility. Through negotiations, he was able to get exactly what I wanted, my vehicle to be repaired and my missed work compensated. I couldn't have asked for more and would definitely recommend his services to anyone involved in a similar incident.

Fast, Knowledgeable and Repsonive!!!
I was in a car accident and Pino and his team made a nightmarish experience better than tolerable. There service, knowledge and compassion were outstanding!! Specifically: -They kept on top of and made sure all my medical bills were paid on time without me writing one check. - They kept me informed of the progress of the situation at all times. -They were always available and answered the phone when I called. -Finally, they were able to get the case settled and closed in less than a year. Outstanding people and Outstanding Service!!

Certified and Official.
Armed with a top notch law firm already and in the midst of a David and Goliath type legal battle. We reached out to the Law Firm of Pellegrino L. Certa, not just for his legal expertise but for also because of his excellent ability to work under press in any and all situations. I wish we had him back home in the big apple....

Determined and Honest
Pino Certa was a professional all the way. He was able to work me through my case and give a clear view of what was happening step by step. And the day of the decision Pino was determined and focused on getting results beyond my expectations.

Motorcycle Injury Accident Was Well Handled
After a free initial consultation I was comfortable with the experience and level of dedication. I was pleased with my choice as the case proceeded efficiently. The witness follow up was thorough as was all record keeping. I never felt that I had difficulty contacting the office if needed. At settlement there were no financial surprises and since my case was several years ago, I am confident that the additional experience has only made an excellent legal representative even better.
