Thank you for the best “first accident case” I’ve ever had… I was referred to Fetterman and Associates by a coworker from a previous job I had. Once my car was totaled out, I contacted them. Not only were they friendly and understanding - they took over the whole process which helped me. I was stressed and panicking about it all and thankfully, I didn’t have to worry as the process began. I had no idea what I was doing or going to do. I am glad I chose them because everything was a breeze for me. They are kind, respectful, responsive and great to work with!

The entire staff in the Fetterman office are available always to help. No matter what time of day I called or left a message I have always received a call back. I was made to feel like one of the family and treated with respect and dignity. The lawsuit was handled quickly, professionally, and with all bases covered. Whenever I had a question or needed help the staff was there to make sure that everything was done accurately. The positive attitude of the entire staff made me comfortable and assured me that all was done accurately.

Looking for a good team they are the way to go… I was referred from a family member to seek advice due to my accident. I was contacted back the same day I called over the weekend. I experienced great service from Fetterman and Associates and my lawyer did an awesome job with closing my case. I appreciate what they went beyond to help my case and was very professional. Thank you Mr Cavataro and Sylvia.
