The attorneys at Cilenti and Cooper are unique, genuine lawyers who go above and beyond. They treated me like family. I trust them to protect me and I am very pleased with the results in my case.
Maria C.Yonkers, NY
I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My attorney fought hard for me and explained everything from beginning to end. I think the advice they provided was great and they worked hard to obtain a successful outcome faster than I thought possible.
