I cannot say enough about Schackow and Mercadante. Brian Schackow was always in contact and kept both me and my husband informed. He was also a great support with giving me the encouragement on all of my physical therapy before and after knee surgery. It would be impossible to imagine having been able to do thhis without out. Laloni, Legal Assistant to Brian, was always available as well with e-mailing updates and listening to our concerns. Dealing with a local firm is by far the best. All of the interaction I had with them was professional and timely. They were also warm and gracious. Brian consistently gave me updates on how my case was proceeding. It is wonderful knowing an Attorneys office of this caliber is available to all of us in Gainesville FL. I will recommend Schackow and Mercadante to anyone in need of a Personal Injury Lawyer.
