Power of Attorney/Living Will
During a very difficult time in my life when both my elderly parents were critically ill, Rocco was referred to me to obtain the necessary legal documents necessary for me to have as their caretaker. As difficult as this time was for me, Rocco demonstrated a great deal of compassion and understanding which contributed to making it easier for me to deal with my situation. His affable demeanor was one of his many attributes. He took care of preparing all the legal documents I needed to assume legal responsibility for my parents. I would highly recommend Rocco Ricobono as a trusted, highly ethical lawyer who has earned my respect following the values of his faith and commitment to his vocation.

Absolutely Amazing Attorney!
I have known Rocco Riccobono for nearly twenty years. Over the years, I have contacted and consulted with him dozens of times on a variety of legal cases. Each time, Rocco paid careful attention, asked important questions, and gave me wise and trustworthy advice. I have *absolute* trust in his judgement not only based on his wide range of expertise and knowledge of the law but also because of his sensitivity to the needs and peculiarities of each and every single case I brought to his attention. Occasionally, I simply needed honest advice and that is exactly what I got. Other times, it was based on Rocco's solid advice and hard work that I achieved my end goal in every circumstance that demanded legal intervention and was able to successfully navigate the intricate web of our legal system (not easy, so watch out, this can often be an extremely slippery slope!!). If you are looking for an attorney with integrity, intelligence, and long-standing experience who can deliver what you expect of him without disappointment and without the excessive or hidden fees many other attorneys so shamefully hand over to you, then this is your guy! Time and again Rocco crafted splendid legal briefs chockfull of excellent points; he represented me and was successful filing motions on my behalf--time and again that led to my winning my case. To give some examples, one involved a very complicated and sensitive medical situation wherein I had lost fifteen thousand dollars; for me, that sum represented years of my savings. Rocco fought hard on my behalf and recovered the *entire* expenditure; those "lost" funds were promptly returned to me thanks to Rocco's intervention. Another case involved my landlord: although this is outside the immediate scope of his expertise, there too, it is thanks to following Rocco's advice that I was able to win my case against a landlord who had defrauded me for nearly ten years.

Highly recommended lawyer
Rocco Riccobono was a beacon of hope to my family and I at a time when our world came tumbling down. Rocco had provided legal advice and guidance during this difficult situation. I found him to be experienced, responsive, knowledgable and honest. While working with Rocco, I felt as though my situation was in adept and trustworthy hands, and he did not steer me wrong. I highly recommend Rocco to anyone seeking legal representation. He is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and unique needs at hand.

Caring & Professional Attorney
Rocco Riccobono was a saving grace to our family. We consulted with him after our attorney no longer provided us with the support we needed to advocate for our then 9 month old son. Our son had lead poising and within two months after hiring Rocky we settled our case with more compensation than we first thought was possible. Rocky is extremely caring, hands on and goes above and beyond to assist you in acquiring a great settlement. We highly recommend him to anyone struggling with a personal injury matter.

Phenomenal Attorney, Great Person, Relentless Advocate
Mr. Riccobono is an excellent lawyer. He represented me in a personal injury case during one of the toughest times of my life. Rocco not only helped me put the pieces back together, but he also ensured that I would be comfortable moving forward. He is extremely professional, talented, and sincerely cares for his clients. After this experience, I would not think about retaining any other attorney.

I recommend Mr. Rocco Riccobono
My name is Nick. Mr. Riccobono had represented me, as plaintiff, in a case of medical malpractice, and after an extensive legal battle had won the case. During all that time he proved himself to be highly professional, knowledgeable and punctual. I recommend him.

Finally! An honest and trustworthy lawyer at an affordable price!
As a real estate investor and broker for nearly 20 years, I have dealt with my fair share of lawyers. When I was sued by an employee of a contractor on a job, Rocco put me at ease and assured me I had very little to worry about. He was right. I had nothing to worry about and I never lost the case. What Rocco expected would be the likely outcome happened just as he anticipated and his proposal never went over budget. I am grateful to have Rocco on my side and I personally, and highly recommend him.
