Client Reviews

Lehman and Pastino represented me in my auto accident suit… I received PERSONAL attention from Lehman and Pastino…they travelled with me to my doctor's appointments, completed all my paperwork, and clearly explained all my options. They treated me like a PERSON, not just a client. Their knowledge of the law was precise and "on the money." I would recommend them for all of anyone's legal needs.
Michael Pastino was my attorney for my lawsuit I had when I was in a really bad car accident. The office of Lehman & Pastino where great. Not only did they win my case, they helped me after my husband suddenly died… They are both wonderful attorneys and go out of their way to get you through your case even if it has nothing to do with your case. I would very much recommend them to anyone who needs an attorney.
Kelly Murphy
Lehman & Pastino represented me after two separate auto accidents. They are very knowledgeable and professional. Lehman & Pastino settled both of my accidents and kept in constant contact as I recovered from my injuries. I highly recommend this law firm and would definitely hire them to represent me again in the future.
