This is a review from one of the many satisfied clients of the Tormey Law Firm LLC:

Exceptional Attorney”

5.0 stars
Posted by anonymous
“I hired Brent Dimarco after a horrible run in with DCFS. I hired him and he truly is the reason I came out of this mess intact. He took care of all of my concerns, explained everything regarding my case that I did not understand and he put my anxiety and nerves at ease. He was calm, cordial, professional but at the same time made me feel like a friend. I could not be more pleased with the results of my now CLOSED case. For anyone looking for an attorney to handle their case I highly recommend hiring Mr. Ercolano.”
