Mario Palermo represented my husband in a semi truck accident. Mario was the best choice for us looking back. Mario was always attentive to our concerns, prompt in keeping us informed about the developments of our case. We knew that of course he had other cases, but we always felt as though he gave us his full attention when we needed him. Trust me when I say that he is the best! I trust him implicitly!


Mario is a very good lawyer. He was very consistent and patient with my case– he really tried to get the most money he possibly could get me for my pain and suffering. Even though it was a really hard time in my life, I look back at the whole thing with fond memories because with Mario’s help, it turned out okay. I would definitely recommend Mario for your personal injury lawyer.
