Client Reviews
★★★★★
I highly recommended Law office of Zorrilla and Silvestrini, they are always there for you. They help me in the most difficult moment. Excellent service and very professional team. I will always be grateful for everything they did for my and my family. Rosalynn R.
★★★★★
After having several bad experiences with different attorneys, from never having a call returned, to having the opposite outcome of what was promised, I was fortunate to find them. I had a stress free experience, having a positive outcome after being told by at least 3 attorneys (and paying for it) that I didn't have a case. I STRONGLY recommend them! Juanita R.
★★★★★
It is the first time in my life having a meeting with a lawyer to seek advice. Angel Silvestrini, Esq. made me feel at ease, was on time, very clear in his explanations and put my mind at ease. He pointed me in a direction and helped me find the compass. May God continue to bless him. Nadine S.
