A Word from a Client

My husband was seriously injured in an accident. It left him a paraplegic without bowel or bladder function. For nine months he lived in a rehab hospital. We had absolutely no experience with attorneys – never needed one before the accident. The best decision we made was when we called John Mattiacci. I can’t even remember the first two weeks during his surgery and hospital stay. Needless to say, we were overwhelmed. Between going back and forth daily to the rehab hospital I was too stressed to think about legal matters. John eased our minds. He led our fight, taking the stress away from me. He was so helpful in explaining how the entire process works. He handled everything while I concentrated on helping my husband heal. John gave his all to our case. His heart is as big as his mind. We could feel his genuine compassion for our family. As an example, in one of our court conferences, after John presented, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room (including the other side of the table). If we ever have a legal matter in the future, it will be John Mattiacci that we call. We could not recommend him more highly.
