“I have always wanted to be an attorney, I have always wanted to help people in need. There is no greater privilege for me than being a part of justice being done. It is my belief that what we do and how well we apply our skills is the legacy of justice we leave behind for each and every one of our personal injury clients.”
– Steve Cannella
