I have experienced first hand how devastating a serious injury can be for individuals and their families. When I was a teenager, I was a passenger in a catastrophic automobile accident that forever changed my life. Despite the years of rehabilitation and the permanent scarring, my most painful memory wasn’t physical; it was of the strain that the financial uncertainty placed on my family. I’ll never forget the concerned look on my parents’ faces as they sifted through the mountain of unpaid medical bills.

Because I was fortunate enough to be represented by Cellino and Barnes in connection with my injury and therefore collect fair compensation, I was able to go on to attend college, where I majored in business and was twice elected as the president of the student government representing over 17,000 students. Here, I was drawn to public speaking and developed a passion for helping others. I enrolled in law school and quickly became a member of the university’s National Trial Team competing against the best law schools in tournaments from coast-to-coast.

Following law school graduation, I declined an offer from one of the nation’s top corporate law firms and decided to instead pursue my life-long dream inspired by my own experience: to work as a trial attorney on behalf of injured individuals. I joined a prestigious trial firm in Manhattan, New York, where I focused on construction accident claims and trial advocacy.

I am now a Managing Attorney at Cellino and Barnes, one of the largest personal injury law firms in the nation. At Cellino and Barnes we share in a collective goal: to zealously represent each client and make client service and satisfaction our number one priority. I joined this law firm because I know that Cellino and Barnes has the resources and the experience to achieve maximum results for every client.

Having personally experienced the consequences of a life changing injury, I know how important it is to have an advocate willing to fight for you. I take professional pride in providing zealous advocacy and personal service to each my clients and strive to alleviate the uncertainties that flow from tragedy.

Client Thanks

I would like to thank your firm for representing our family on behalf of my late husband. This whole process was, at times, difficult for us and sometimes painful. But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
