-Julia Ashirova, Google Review 2013

"Mr. Scardigno did an excellent job handling my case. It was unique in a way since the DWI complicated and correlated with my other cases at the Federal and Family Courts. He was very professional about every step of the procedure. As the matter of fact he showed that he was taking matters personally in despite of a cap we agreed on. He put much more effort and time into it then his job has required. I am sure that the outcome would be much worse if it was not for his outstanding performance."

-Grace Williams, Google Review 2013

"I can unequivocally and wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Luke Scardigno as a lawyer. His honesty, kindness, and dedication to truth and the best possible efforts to represent you are clearly evident. I cannot say enough about what a thoughtful and good man he is. Always reachable and responsive to questions and concerns, he will be at your side from day one, and even after your case is resolved. He truly cares about you as a person, not just as a client. You will not be disappointed. He is an excellent lawyer in every respect."

-Shah Ali, Google Review 2013

"I was charged with a DWI. This was something I did not take lightly, I felt as if my life was ruined due to my poor decision. Some don't realize just how much this offense can cost you. It can cost you your driver's license, your job and even your freedom. Luke Scardino cared about my case and the outcome of it. Thanks to Mr Luke's hard work and knowledge of the law, my charges were dropped. I couldn't be more thankful.

Mr. Luke, Thank you so much! I really appreciate it."

-Brian Wilder, Google Review 2012

"Mr. Scardigno handled my false arrest case with the utmost professionalism. Mr Scardigno responded promptly to phone calls, emails and text. I felt that i had his eyes and ears and not just another case on a court docket.Most of all he was enthusiastic about the case. When, presenting my defense, he was LITERALLY the most VOCAL attorney in the court room; and it was only in the pretrial phase. I could only imagine how he is during trial.

During one of my most dire moments, in which my job was jeopardy, Mr. Scardigno got my case completely dismissed.Unlike many firms and public defenders, He just doesn't plead your case, Luke is actually interested in presenting the best possible defense. Affordable, attentive, and understanding, you cannot go wrong with Luke Scardigno."

-A Google User, Google Review 2012

"Luke Scardigno is very professional and knowledgeable of law and indeed caring and considerate to his clients. Luke walked me all the way throught my idv case even allocating pointers on how to deal with the other party in a mature manner. Luke is one of the best persons an person can meet. He wears many hats and always makes sure his clients are satisfied. Thank you Luke for everything and may God Bless you always."

-William H., Google Review 2012

"After Reading the other testimonials it doesn't seem like there's much to say about Mr. Scardigno that hasn't already been stated, so I'll leave you with what I came away with on a personal level during my interaction with him:

I interviewed several attorneys to represent me on this case because I wanted to ensure the best possible outcome. In the end, I realize how fortunate I was to go with my gut feelings (which were overwhelmingly positive) and retain his services after our first meeting. The first thing I noticed was his promptness; he always arrived either a few minutes early, or right on time. I found him to be an great listener, as he took the time to get to know me and learn about my situation. He was, fair, charismatic, honest, calm, and most importantly, he was knowledgeable.

I walked away from this case thankful, relieved and extremely satisfied with the way Mr. Scardigno represented me. I would not hesitate to call him again (which will hopefully be no time soon) and I highly recommend his services to those who are looking for an above average experience. Luke, thank you for a job well done! Sincerely, William H"
