Corporate Lawyer Testimonial From Pittsburgh Client:

“John Prorok, partner at Maiello, Brungo & Maiello, has been our corporate counsel and legal advisor since 2015. He handled all our legal needs since and provided crucial information and advice in related areas, such as in HR and COVID-19 matters. John is a very thorough and competent professional who always understands the interest of our company, and I do feel that we are in good hands. What I like especially about John is his ability to remain calm and focused in difficult or complex situations. For special cases, John has been involving other legal representatives from Maiello, Brungo & Maiello and the firm has been always very attentive, responsive, and proactive when it comes to dealing with our legal needs. I highly recommend John Prorok and Maiello, Brungo & Maiello as professional and competent full-service law firm.” – J.B.
