Hear From Clients

“Doctors aren’t always right, and they certainly got it wrong in my case when they dismissed and ignored my symptoms. When my heart attack was left untreated, the doctors’ mistakes nearly killed me. I’m glad I turned to Friedman, Domiano & Smith. Your team guided me through this legal battle and helped me get restitution.”

– Marshelle Patterson

“Unsafe conditions at my workplace caused a brick wall to collapse leaving me injured and unable to return to work. Worker’s Compensation didn’t even come close to covering my losses. Your team at Friedman, Domiano & Smith went above and beyond to help me attain compensation beyond what Workers Compensation paid.”

– Steve Killeen

“FDS pursued our case with compassion and took the time to take our calls and answered all our questions. We are truly grateful to Marco Bocciarelli for his efforts and are delighted with the outcome of our case.
Thank you so very much.”
