Our Workers Compensation Client Recommendations

The following are reviews and recommendations of actual former workers compensation clients recently handled by New Orleans Legal:

I Met Peter and My Case Turned Around Immediately.

I strongly recommend Peter Diiorio for anyone who is injured and needs a smart, hard-working attorney who cares about them and their case.  When I first met Peter, I had already been working with another attorney on my workers' compensation claim.  I had suffered serious injuries, but was unable to find relief from my prior attorney.  In fact, he told me there was nothing that could be done.  Then I met Peter and my case turned around immediately.  Within 8 months I had received a tremendous settlement, due to Peter's hard-work, determination and attention to detail.  My case involved complicated workers comp issues such as an MSA medicare set aside and disability issues, but Peter was able to thread the needle and allow me to make a substantial recovery.  It wasn't just about how much I recovered, but also how Peter handled my case that was so refreshing.  He would always take my calls or return them right away.  He always treated me with the greatest amount of respect and professionalism.  I knew from the way he treated me that he really did care about me and my case.  He always took the time to walk me through the process and answered all the questions I had.  Peter is an extremely knowledgeable attorney who cares about his clients and looks out for their best interests.  I am so glad that we met and I chose him to take over my case.

Peter Delivered the Results I Needed When It Really Counted. 

I strongly recommend attorney Peter Diiorio of New Orleans Legal.  When I first talked to Peter, I had just been badly injured in a car accident and had a broken leg.  I could not even walk.  I could not work, and had lost my car.  I was in a real bad spot, and my claim had been outright denied by the insurance company. I talked with Peter on the phone and he was very compassionate and understanding, and came over to my house to meet me in person.  Once we met and Peter started representing me, he got my situation turned around very quickly.  Peter saw that I got the medical treatment I needed right away.  In fact, everything that the insurance company and other attorneys told me couldn't happen, began to happen.  What Peter told me would happen, began to happen.  Anytime I needed to talk with Peter, he was always available to talk – 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.  I would text his cell phone and always get a prompt response.  In less than a year, Peter recovered a six figure settlement for me.  In my time of need Peter really came through for me big time.  I would recommend Peter Diiorio to anyone injured and needing an attorney.  Peter is a real attorney who actually cares.  He was with me very step of the way.  He is honest, hard-working, compassionate, extremely knowledgeable, smart and always available.  And Peter delivered the results I needed when it really counted.

Peter Diiorio is a Hard-Working Very Accessible Attorney. 

I would highly recommend attorney Peter Diiorio to anyone in need of civil representation.  Peter took over my workers compensation case when other lawyers said I did not even have a case, even though I was badly injured.  Within nine months he recovered a six figure settlement for me.  Peter is a hard-working very accessible attorney. He is also a very smart attorney who sees angles that obviously the other attorneys did not.  I am always grateful that I met Peter and that he got me the results that he did.  He and his staff treated me as if I were the only client they had.  I highly recommend Peter to anyone who needs someone to handled their case quickly and very successfully.

Putting Our Clients First

Putting our clients first also means we have a strict 24-hour communications policy, wherein our clients’ phone calls are always returned within 24 hours, if not sooner.

A Proven Track Record of Success

We have successfully recovered millions of dollars in settlements for our clients in personal injury claims, auto accidents, and insurance claims. The reason that our opponents settle our clients’ cases for full value is because they know we prepare all our clients’ cases for trial from the start. In fact, we are known for not being afraid to take cases to trial, and thus our opponents know they are in for a fight when going against our clients.
