Case Evaluation
Excellent service for our college student! When our college student found himself in need of an attorney we looked around and found a few attorneys that were less expensive, but we were very happy that we chose Bob Masella. His knowledge and expertise were invaluable and his office did an excellent job of keeping us informed since we live out of state. They made our son feel comfortable and informed every step of the way, too, and it was so nice to know that there was someone there to help him through his situation since we couldn't be there. We couldn't have been more pleased with the service or the results.
