“I am so happy to have chosen this firm to represent me during this tedious and difficult time after my car accident. I instantly felt that I was in the hands of more-than competent, friendly, and professional staff. Melissa Torres was my assigned case manager and I was so impressed by her communication with me during this whole process. I was in the care of Attorney Brian Malamud. When I tell you he went over the details and possible outcome scenarios of my case with a fine-toothed comb, I am not kidding. The attention that was given to me from start to finish was more than exceptional. Thank you Wolf & Provato!””.
