I had a great experience at Mauro's firm - I was rear ended by a driver and they handled all the details of my case and I never felt like I was an afterthought. My case was resolved quickly and efficiently and I was very satisfied with how I was taken care of at every step of the process which is a wonderful feeling given that I was in a lot of physical pain. The staff at the office are very friendly and inviting, I always enjoyed being in the office. They carry themselves with professionalism and were very thorough with all of the details of my case throughout the process. I will definitely hire them again if I'm in the unfortunate situation of having to need a lawyer in the future.

It's crazy how all these reviews are bad about the attorney and his office. I had a car accident and they handled my case prompt and professionally got me a Dr and handled my case fine. One thing these bad reviews don't understand and they make it seem like they were the only client they needed to attened to i knew i was one of many many many cases they were handling. The bad reviews are from money hungry clients who think they need to cater to them. I would definitely recommend this office and this attorney they know what they are doing
