What Our Clients Say About Our Services

Melissa Gencarelli helped my friend and I through a car accident case that happened last year. My friend and I have never went through such a long process, however Mrs. Gencarelli had helped us through it all as we did not have any knowledge on the process. She was outstanding; she took out the time for us to understand everything without going further, she worked with us and kept this process stress free from our college courses we were taking through the process. I admired that the most from her because she understood me. Being a first generation college student and dealing with an unfortunate event in my life could of jeopardized my performance in class, however she did the best she could to help and I am so grateful for her ambition and work ethics. Thank you again Mrs. Gencarelli. You'd be sorry to pass her up to represent you.
