Testimonial
“My experience with Richard Serpe can be summarized in two words, “absolute trust.” I came to Mr. Serpe on the advice of a friend after a car hit me while riding my motorcycle. I immediately sensed that Mr. Serpe was an extremely capable and professional attorney whose sole objective would be to look out for my best interests; and that’s precisely what he did. He was candid and thorough when discussing the circumstances of my case and always ensured I understood the legal process and what to expect next. His advice was invaluable and enabled me to reach a settlement that fairly compensated me for the injuries I sustained and provided me with financial security. I would not hesitate to contact Richard Serpe again if the situation necessitated it; I would recommend him to anyone.”
