What Clients Are Saying

“After my car accident, I needed a lawyer to try to collect the compensation I thought I deserved. I was very upset and had no idea where to turn, so I asked a friend who said, ‘Call Mike Beatrice.’ He knew Michael’s office was located nearby, plus he had a stellar reputation as a defense attorney. My neighbor was right: Michael calmed me down and, more importantly, we won the lawsuit! Thank you, Michael, for all your help and your patience with my questions and concerns.”

– F.P.

What Clients Are Saying

“After my father-in-law died, his will was challenged by some family members so we needed an experienced attorney who knew how to handle a difficult situation. Frankly, if our family hadn’t found Mr. Beatrice, I think we still wouldn’t be speaking to one another! Since then, my wife and I have hired Mr. Beatrice for other legal services too.”
