We Work Harder!
Some attorneys "specialize" in one area of law, but life is never that simple. An employment case may have a personal injury aspect, or vice versa. Clients benefit from the overlap of our diverse backgrounds. They also benefit from the extra effort we we put into the front end of the case: exploring all defense strategies, exhausting insurance sources for an auto accident claim, helping clients find doctors who will treat them for later payment.
We work for out-of-court resolutions when they meet our clients' needs, but we are experience trial lawyers willing to go all the way to a jury -- or beyond. Bell, Shivas & Fasolo, P.C. has taken three cases to the New Jersey Supreme Court, and we won all three: in employment litigation, criminal defense and municipal law.
