“As Steve and I reflected on the past year, we began to talk about the people that had an impact on us and/or our lives. Your name came up. We began to talk about our experience with you.So we started thinking, wouldn’t it be nice to let you know how we felt about our experience with you during Steve’s workman’s compensation case? First, we have to acknowledge that we do not think anyone could have handled Steve’s case any better than you did.
With the confusion that circles around the workman’s comp., you were able to guide us through the process with the utmost compassion, humor, respect and knowledge. From the day of the injury up to the current day – through the ups and downs, we have met and been helped by some amazing people and you are certainly one of them. Thank you for helping us through our challenges and never making us feel that our questions were not important, or that we were not important. You were never too busy to take our phone calls as situations would arise. We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate what you did for us.” -Steve and Terri
“This letter is to thank your firm, specifically Mr. William Crossett and Mr. Joseph Stainistreet for representation that was above and beyond what I expected to receive. Mr.Stainistreet was clever, extremely professional, comforting, and always kept us informed during the process. It was apparent to me that he cared about the outcome almost as much as I did. His style of representation was impeccable, classy, and he cleverly executed every facet of the case. It was very difficult to find An Attorney to handle A Longshore Labor Law case. My Sister and myself called countless Law Firms and even called New York State Bar Association and they had no idea what Longshore Labor Law was? I was very fortunate to have found MCV Law. I was proud to have Mr Crossett as my lawyer. I felt comforted by his portrayal of experience and knowledge. Throughout this experience, Mr. Crossettt spent his evening hours preparing for the next day. He was protective, well prepared, thorough, convincing, and always accurate. Mr. Crossett did everything he promised and more. He comforted me when I was worried, and fought hard for me. I have already recommended a co-worker to MCV Law and will speak very highly of The Firm when asked about my case for years to come. Mr. Crossett and Mr Stainistreet are truly and asset to your firm, as they are a terrific Legal Representation. Thank You. Sincerely yours, Joanne “
