Client Reviews

Went looking for a lawyer everywhere....No one seemed to be able to take our case until we came across Gary Pacella. He is a very caring lawyer who just wants to help people. I hope we never need a lawyer again but if we do, I pick him.

Janet L.

Attorney Pacella, You did more then I could have expected. Although I hope to not see you again, because that would mean I have legal problems, I would highly recommend you to other people who do. Thank you- for all the guidance and support you gave to me.

Susan O.

Attorney Gary Pacella was the first lawyer I have ever needed to contact, and I was unsure and intimidated by the entire process. He is very professional and kind, he explained everything he was doing and going to do in a way that I understood exactly what it meant. He took me step by step through...
