I’ve known Joe throughout most of my life, starting with grade school and high school. We played baseball and football together and were very competitive on and off the field. Joe carried that competitive personality into his law firm. He instilled those same qualities into his team of lawyers and support staff at Stampone Law.
It’s the “win” attitude that his firm insists on as they represent you – no matter how big or small your personal injury case may be. That is why my family, friends and I keep returning to the Stampone Law Firm. Specifically for Joe’s extensive knowledge of law and of course, that “win, win, win” attitude.
