The Law Offices of Schackow & Mercadante, P.A. proudly serve the Central / North Florida residents of Gainesville, Lake City, Palatka and Ocala.
With all the choices for lawyers out there; among the ambulance chasers and people who make the process a fiendishly, and above all unpleasant experience, there is a shining gem of a law office. The lawyers and staff at Schackow & Mercadante are professional, courteous and above all treat you like the person you are. You are not a number, you are not just a paycheck, but you are a friend, a guest, dare I even say, a family member. The case I brought to them was a motor vehicle accident, I was wrongly accused of being the at fault party. Luckily enough, I have a dash-cam that captured it all. Not only did I go into court to contest the ticket (of which I was acquitted), but I had a whole TEAM of lawyers and law professionals to defend me. I felt like I had won before we even stepped into the courtroom. After this I had to become well again from the injuries I had sustained and recuperate the losses I was now beleaguered with. Once again, Mr. Schackow and his team rose to the occasion and after having surgery I am pain free for the first time since the accident and it is worth more to me than anything else and all returning to a sense of normalcy. The advice I give to potential clients is this. Stay positive, be patient, GET A DASHBOARD CAMERA it may save you and above all focus on becoming well, they have your case in hand and will make sure you get the best and fairest treatment. I would DEFINITELY hire them again.
