An individual who is seriously injured due to the negligence of another person or company experiences severe life-altering consequences. That individual is a different person than he was before suffering his injuries.

Our legal system cannot lessen the pain, trauma or physical and emotional turmoil the injured person experiences. It is only equipped to hold the responsible party accountable for their negligence. Awarding the injured person monetary damages is the only way our legal system can attempt to make the injured person whole.

I am committed to having my clients’ voices heard by insurance companies, judges and juries. I have extensive legal experience as a prosecutor and civil litigation attorney. If an insurance company is unwilling to settle my clients’ injury claims fairly, I want that company to know I am willing to go to court – to go the distance – for my clients.

Cellino & Barnes personal injury attorney Denis Bastible was featured on WGRZ Channel 2 News in Buffalo after he helped a family secure a substantial confidential settlement after an Iraq War veteran was ejected and killed while riding a Western New York roller coaster.

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.
