When clients select Cellino & Barnes to represent them in their personal injury cases, they have the right to expect an attorney who has extensive trial experience, as well as experience in dealing with insurance company representatives.

As a senior trial attorney for a Fortune 500 property and casualty insurance company, I learned the inner workings of the insurance business, and how that industry accesses and resolves liability claims. This experience is particularly crucial in the evaluation and preparation of each case I handle.

I was selected to lecture judges who attend the New York State Magistrate’s training course, as well as lecturing fellow attorneys on continuing legal education through the Bar Association of Erie County’s Negligence Committee. As a result, I have been recognized as a leader in civil trials and legal jurisprudence.

The team approach at Cellino & Barnes insures maximum results for our clients, and the highest success for our firm. Keeping in mind our responsibility to be our clients’ guide and protector in the legal process, we are available from the onset to the conclusion of each case to address each client’s particular needs or questions.

Cellino & Barnes,
Just would like to give a HUGE Thank you to Jack Murrett for taking our dog bite case and doing such a great job! I had 2 lawyers previous to him and they didn’t want to do any work to prove defendants were negligent. But, Jack stuck it out and followed through with all leads and won the case. I also sent other lawyers that I had a thank you card for dropping the case; because I ended up with a great lawyer!
Thanks Jack!

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.
