Cellino & Barnes Reviews



“When my car was rear ended, I was scared and in pain. I called Cellino and Barnes and I was transferred to Igor Grichanik who took care of my case. Through the entire case Igor kept me informed, answered my questions and quickly returned my calls and emails. Igor got the case to settle for a higher amount than the amount that was offered by the insurance company. I definitely felt in good hands with Igor Grichanik and Lisa Meyer. I want to thank and express my gratitude to Cellino and Barnes and specially to Igor for the professionalism and excellent representation.” -Ana V.


“Amazing! Stephen Ciocca and Diane Hirsh we’re beyond helpful. They actually made me feel like I was their only client. Returning emails and phone calls almost immediately.

“I’m surprised to read these negative reviews especially the ones that indicated that the person did not identify themselves.
My experience was great. I called when I was involved in an accident about a year ago.  I was on a bicycle and was run over by a pickup truck.  The attorney I spoke with was very nice and suggested we should meet in a few days – I told him with my injuries that would be difficult and he said that his plan was to come to me!  All through the process they were honest and communicative, keeping me well informed.
My case was settled for the maximum amount, just as my lawyer told me it would be.
My experiences were great.” -Penny C.



“I was in a terrible accident with an uninsured driver, when my auto insurance finally settled with me it became a bit of a struggle with the state. My lawyer Sandy Fazili was always quick to respond to calls and emails. Himself as well Ross Celino were very sympathetic to my plight and went above and beyond to make sure I received the most compensation possible. Although the series of events that put me in their law offices was awful, I couldn’t be happier with quality of service I received and the overall outcome. I am so greatful I made the decision to seek representation from the law offices of Celino and Barns and found so a wonderful and knowledgeable lawyer in Sandy Fazili” -Jake D.



“Ms. Aybike took my case when no other lawyers would, due to me being in the gray area of a motor vehicle accident. Alma kept me up to date with the proceedings of my case. Aybike & Alma is an awesome team, this group was my best choice!!” -Princess L.



“If your looking for quality, Aybike Donuk Esq. is amazing! Thorough from beginning to end. She is hands down thee best personal injury attorney. She kept me informed of every detail of my case, never made me feel small or unworthy of her time. She truly cares and listened to all of my questions and concerns. She made herself available to me, and when, if ever she wasn’t her paralegal Alma was right there to pick up where she left off. She put me first and I was so shocked that all of my expectations were met and then some! She fights for you like it’s for her own mother. You would think you are her only client! I hope I never need her again but if so she’s the first call I’m making. Don’t overlook this hidden gem! Get you an Aybike!” -Shana M.

“I normally do not write reviews however I fell & it was suggested I contact Cellino and Barnes. I emailed them with details as calling sometimes gets lost in translation. I was contacted almost immediately by Jordon Finkelstein. He explained in detail why I did not have a case. His response was explained in detail & very easy to comprehend. I had further questions & he responded again with answers. Jordon was respectful & sympathetic to my injury. I regret that I don’t have a case as I would love to have had Jordon handle it. He was so straight forward, precise & kind. If I ever have an injury in the future, I would definitely contact him. My correspondence with him was just email but I would bet he would be terrific in person.” -Sheila D.

I was not looking to get rich, I only wanted  recompense from what was taken from me due to inability to work….which I had/have been doing. Still am.

Fantastic attorneys….they actually listen, stick around and answer question. Nothing else for me to say other that Cellino gives back to the community like you would never believe.” -Julie C.

This man gave me a life changing experience and re-newed my faith in humanity. The arbitrator personally walked out to where I was with my attorney, shook my hand and said in all the years he’s been doing this he had never seen anything like it, his words were “its nothing short of a miracle ” the miracle was sent to me in the form of this wonderful attorney. Thanks Robert for your faith in my truth and in your abilities. Mine and my sons life have been forever changed.” -Nora D.

“Two years ago my daughter’s vehicle was struck in Doylestown, PA. Rott was making an unlawful left turn and had underage passengers with him. My daughter suffered serious cartilage damage, and her car was totaled. Foolishly, we trusted the authorities and the insurance companies to do the right thing. [The driver’s] family proceeded to remove him from any legal responsibility whatsoever (although morally this coward will bear the shame forever), and then the insurance companies refused to honor the claims for medical costs. When we started getting dunning letters, a year afterward, I contacted Michael Cooper at Cellino & Barnes. Frankly, we didn’t give him much to go on. But he took action, and he recovered a modest amount that has helped to settle the outstanding debts. For his services he retained only a relatively small amount. Thank you, Mr Cooper, and may God bless you. Justice doesn’t always look the way you expect.” -Michael A.



“Wonderful From Intake to Settlement. Highly responsive and patient. Attorney Aybike Donuk and Her Staff Alma Mesa were highly professional and polite.

My attorney Aybike Donuk was very knowledgeable” -Elaina K.

They (and my lawyer, Jordan Finkelstein) were supportive in so many ways: helping me navigate the complicated red tape of no-fault law, finding me medical providers when I was injured and traumatized and with no idea how to get care, and helping me negotiate a fair and speedy settlement. Jordan was also a compassionate source of emotional support in dealing with the aftermath of a car accident. I really couldn’t have asked for a better law team.” -Yasmin M.



“Great experience. Professional team. Lawyer was upfront, honest and returned emails and telephone calls in a timely manner. Happy with settlement! Would recommend.” -J.W.

All of what I should expect and what would happen next and each part of the process was explained to me in simple terms . In addition, I was fully supported in making the best decision for my personal situation. After being hit I was unable to work and had to recover from surgery for several months. But I didn’t have to worry Celliano and Barnes helped my get all the out of work wages I was eligible for to Sustain myself without a regular paycheck. They also kept every promise made to me about my final award . I felt completely confident with Cellini and Barnes. I would recommend them time and time again.

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.
