Thank you letter from client

Dear Gentlemen,

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.

I am so grateful for the compensation we received. This will give us the opportunity to do some positive things in his memory, and for the first time in 18 years I have a sense of closure and the peace of mind that we did everything we could to see that there was some form of accountability.

Ross, Stephen, I really can’t thank you, and your entire staff, enough for caring so much and seeing to it that the sacrifice my late husband made was not in vain. You and the members of your firm are personally responsible for taking what was a horrible tragedy and transforming it into a legacy that he would be very proud of. You have my deepest respect and admiration.

Kindest regards,


Thank you letter to attorney Stephen C. Ciocca

Words cannot express how much I appreciate you taking on my case and helping me out so significantly! Thank you so, so, so much!! Have a wonderful week!

Thank you letter to attorney George R. Gridelli

Dear Sirs:

This letter is to thank your firm, specifically Mr. George Gridelli for representation that was above and beyond what I expected to receive. Mr. Gridelli was clever, extremely professional, comforting, and always kept us informed during the process. It was apparent to me that he cared about the outcome almost as much as I did. His style of representation was impeccable, classy, and he cleverly executed every facet of the case.

I was proud to have him as my lawyer. We felt comforted by his portrayal of experience and knowledge. Throughout the trial, Mr. Gridelli spent his evening hours preparing for the next day. He was protective, well prepared, thorough, convincing, and always accurate. I could see that the jurors had respect for him and what he had to say. Even the defense attorney, insurance adjuster, and judge complimented his strong, classy representation, and show of experience.

Mr. Gridelli did everything he promised and more. He comforted me when I was worried, and fought hard for me. He was my friend. I have already recommended a co-worker to Cellino & Barnes and will speak very highly of Cellino & Barnes when asked about my case for years to come, because of Mr. Gridelli. Mr. Gridelli is truly an asset to your firm, as he is a terrific person and attorney. Thanks for excellent representation.

Sincerely yours,


Thank you card from client

Dear Mr. Goldstein

Although this card is rather small, the “Thank You” isn’t small at all…You will never know what this money has meant to us.  It does not remove the affects of the stroke, but makes things somewhat better…

Thank you letter from College Scholarship Recipient, Connor S. Himes

Dear Mr. Cellino and Mr. Barnes

I wanted you both to know how excited and truly appreciative I am to have been selected to receive the Cellino & Barnes Scholarship…Your investment and vote of confidence in me is not something I take lightly. My scholastic endeavors are a top priority, while my service through various community and church organizations is truly my pleasure.

After receiving a visit from Ross Cellino, Mr. Quigley’s class sent a special thank you with a photo, which said…

“Extra, Extra Read All About It!

Mr. Quigley’s class has been awarded the Cellino& Barnes classroom scholarship in the amount of $250.00. On December 11, 2007, Mr. Cellino hand-delivered a check and mouse pads for the class. Way to go Mr. Quigley’s class!”

After receiving a college scholarship, Nicholas Debbins wrote…

“I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the scholarship you have given me. I’ve thought about all of the hours I would have to put in at McDonald’s to make that much money. It just amazes me. You’ve given me much more than just $1,000. You’ve given me about 200 more hours to study this semester. Your generosity is simply astounding. Thank you…”

Unsolicited letter from an actual juror…

“I recently had the opportunity to serve as a juror on a trial in which the plaintiff was represented by Robert Schreck of Cellino & Barnes. I wanted to let you know how impressed I was with his outstanding performance in the Court Room.

The respect he displayed towards his client, the Jury the witnesses both on the sides of the Plaintiff and the Defense, the Defense Attorneys and of course, Judge Lane, was overwhelming…

…I found Mr. Schreck to be absolutely brilliant…”

Letter from Cornerstone Manor…

“We here at the Cornerstone Manor wish to thank you for coming in on December 18, 2007 to provide a special Christmas fun gathering for our women and children. Everyone who participated enjoyed frosting the cookies, the carolers, and of course the visit from Santa Claus bearing gifts. We also appreciated your help with the cleanup…”

Thank you letter from a client to Stephen Ciocca

“I’m writing to thank you for doing such a great job winning my trial. I am very grateful to have met you and have you as my lawyer. I cannot imagine finding anyone better….”

College Scholarship winner Kylee Shaffer wrote…

“I want to express my deepest gratitude for selecting me for one of the recipients of your scholarships. I am very grateful for your outreach to young adults in the surrounding area…”

Thank you letter from a client to Brian Goldstein

“I am sorry I haven’t written this to you sooner, but I have not been able to think of the words to express my gratitude to you. “Thank you” just doesn’t seem like enough…”

Thank you letter from a client to John Lavelle

“Hi John,

I just wanted to let you know that I received the envelope with the final paperwork and check. I wanted to thank you for all your help through the last couple of years and for being patient with me. Now, if you allow me, I’d like to keep your information should I ever need again of your services as a lawyer. I had a great experience being represented by you and would also recommend you to people that may need your help. I wish you a very nice holiday season and the best for 2015! “

Thank you letter to Personal Injury Attorney Daniel Aiello

Cellino & Barnes
Dear Sirs,

My car accident in 2015 changed my life drastically. My cognitive function was hugely impaired. The headaches were quite severe. There was a ray of hope when I contacted Cellino & Barnes. Every one of my phone calls was met with reassurance; I felt supported beyond measure. Although I don’t ever want to be in this predicament again, I will say that my attorney and his team made the process a great deal smoother than I ever imagined. I am beyond grateful for their caring manner, their legal prowess, and their attention to detail.

Now that I possess the final settlement check, I can put this event behind me. I have a sense of closure and peace of mind. Thanks to the efforts of this dynamic team, I have peace of mind. If I ever need an attorney again, Cellino & Barnes will be my one and only contact. I shall recommend your firm highly without reservation.

I remain eternally grateful


Cellino & Barnes

I just wanted to say thank you for everything that you’ve done to move this along. You have always responded so quickly to all of my calls and emails (which have been getting more frequent, sorry!), and that has been so reassuring. I’ve never once felt that I was “just another case” to your team. I can’t imagine having to go through this with anyone else.

Thank you so much!

My Friend!

I hand-delivered the signed Settlement Statement today.
Thank you very much for your outstanding representation.
Have a Wonderful Memorial Day Holiday, and an absolutely Delightful Summer!
