'We practice the kind of law that gives the poor guy in the street the keys to the courthouse.' It's not a slogan, 'It's our philosophy.'
Over twenty years ago Cefalo and Associates began as a small law firm, but has grown into one of the largest personal injury law firms in Northeastern Pennsylvania serving an 18 county region surrounding Wilkes-Barre and Scranton. The office is located in West Pittston, Mike Cefalo's hometown. 'I grew up 500 yards away from my office,' he says.
The firm’s six lawyers and support staff handle cases such as auto and truck accidents, slip and fall injuries, medical malpractice, workers' compensation, and defective products. The firm also handles cases involving swimming pool, airplane, and boat accidents. All of our attorney's give free consultations and free legal advice. If you can't come to us, we'll come to you.
'We don't want lawyers with Wall Street backgrounds; we encourage them not to apply. I'm not impressed with degrees and certifications. We don't even hang our diplomas on our walls. I don't hire diplomas to work here. I hire people.'
Mike Cefalo wants his clients to know that he and his attorneys are completely loyal to them without any distractions or other interests. 'We've never represented any insurance company and never will,' he says, 'We are fiercely independent of insurance companies.'
At Cefalo and Associates it's all about people. 'We are always looking for ways to help people. We do more than just represent our clients, we take care of them.' So if you’re injured, call us. We’ll take it from there.
