From the start you took what I consider a complex system and explained it in a very comprehensive manner. From day one, you led me through the process and you were always extremely accurate with the anticipated results. Your guidance was thorough and you prepared me in a manner that made me comfortable and confident. Your response to my calls and emails was very timely and I appreciated that I never felt rushed in our communication. Furthermore, your very flexible and accommodating manner was truly appreciated with my restricted schedule. I applaud the manner in which you – and your efficient paralegal, Linda – handled all aspects of my case. The end result further testifies to your fine ability to lead and advise – although always allowing the decisions to be mine. I thank you and will recommend you in a heartbeat given any opportunity. My sincere thanks to you and the very reputable firm you represent.
The biggest thing about having Michael as your attorney is if you have questions, he makes sure he explains it in detail so you can understand it. There is a lot of attorney talk that people don’t understand and can’t decipher. Michael breaks it down so you can understand it. He’s a great guy. I recommended both my brothers to him. They are both super happy. He’s a great guy and he gets results. Linda was there when I first started seeing Mike, about 15 years ago. She takes care of you. She does a thorough job and if she can’t answer something, she lets me know that I need to talk to Mike. But, she knows a lot.
I was fortunate to have hired Attorney Michael Colonese in an employment case. Michael and the team of Cassie Jameson and Linda Slonski worked tirelessly to find a resolution. They provided emotional support to me when I felt overwhelmed and, at times, defeated. The legal advice they gave me was in language easily understood, concise and honest. They never made me feel I had to “settle” but wanted what was best for me. If anyone ever asked me for a competent and caring lawyer’s name, I would be happy to recommend the team of Michael Colonese, Cassie Jameson and Linda Slonski.

I frequently refer clients to the attorneys at Brown Jacobson on matters involving workers’ compensation, litigation, and other areas in which I do not practice. When I make these referrals, I do so knowing that my clients will get advice of the highest caliber. I am consistently impressed with the collective knowledge and skills of Brown Jacobson attorneys and they are always extremely responsive to my clients’ needs.
He takes his time with you. He’s very personal. When you sit with him, he doesn’t have a computer typing while you are talking. He looks at you. He talks to you. He’s listening to you . When you get there, you feel like they care. You are not just a number. You are a person and they are going to do the best for you.
I was referred to him by another friend who fell off a roof and broke his ankle. My friend told me Michael would take care of me, and he did. He always returned my calls, He was very prompt. I didn’t have to wait weeks to hear from him. They even called when they didn’t have information just to let me know they were still working on it. Just to let me know I hadn’t been forgotten and left on the side the way I was feeling before I called Michael.
I referred my brother to Michael. He had a conveyer break both his legs. Michael looked at the case and told my brother he didn’t need a lawyer because his employer was doing everything that they were supposed to. Michael didn’t charge him any money. It was very nice of him.
I love the way he is with us. He always listens. That’s what I want with an attorney. When you suggest something, he says, ‘It’s up to you.’ He gives us a chance to think. He says, ‘You can decide later. You can call us back.’ They are very accommodating to whatever you need. Plus they are punctual. Whenever I have an appointment at their office, I never have to wait. I love that the service is excellent.
