I highly recommend the services of Attorneys Michael B. Cosentino and Peter Covo for all of your personal, family, or business needs. Michael's vast experience, knowledge, and expertise led to a most successful outcome under nearly impossible contractual deadlines and circumstances. Without Michael, I am 100% certain there would have been no resolution nor closure. Looking forward to working together on other matters.
