Throughout the entire process I felt well-cared for – as though mine was the only case the firm was working on – as Robert always got back to me right away.

I would and will highly recommend YOU (and of course Julie!) to anybody in need of assistance.” – Mindy V.

“Robert Crivello of Cannon & Dunphy did an excellent job with my case. I was badly injured in a motor vehicle accident. Robert was very attentive and very empathetic as I worked through my recovery. He worked very hard to get me the maximum settlement possible. I would highly recommend Robert. He was very professional, very attentive and very patient answering all of my questions (and my husband’s!). If you have been injured and need legal counsel, Robert would be an excellent choice!” – Sandra W.

“Cannon & Dunphy were fantastic for us. I was a passenger in a vehicle that was hit by an inattentive semi-truck driver on the interstate. My friend and I were lucky to survive. I had a broken back and contusions, had to undergo a spinal fusion surgery, and lived in a back brace for 8 months. Pat Dunphy was highly recommended to me by several friends in the legal profession, and Pat did not disappoint. He and his staff, especially Elma, took care of every detail – they managed medical bills, for instance. Robert Crivello stepped in when it came time to litigate the case because my injury was incurred outside of Wisconsin. Everyone was patient with all of our questions and they facilitated a settlement of the case that was very fair. While the accident itself was a horrible experience/trauma to have to go through, I can’t say enough how grateful I am to the Cannon & Dunphy team for helping us through it. I highly recommend this firm!” – Mary W.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Attorney Robert D. Crivello and his support staff over the last 3 years. His expertise, sensitivity, and attention to detail have been demonstrated since day 1 of the auto accident. My mother and I were referred to Attorney Crivello through a family friend and we could not be more thankful for that referral to Cannon & Dunphy, S.C.  Legal recovery is meant to make an individual whole again, however this cannot be accomplished without advocates such as those at Cannon & Dunphy, S.C.  My mother and I never felt confused, unvalued, detached, nor dissatisfied with regard to the settlement process/outcome, and for this we say Thank you!” – D.A.S., B.T.S.

He was a wonderful advocate for our daughter and we could not be happier with all of the hard work and time he devoted to her case. I have always felt the greatest compliment is a referral or recommendation and I can guarantee I will always do both if I ever know of anyone who needs a great attorney at a great firm! Looking back, we are so thankful to have contacted Cannon and Dunphy, and getting to work with Attorney Crivello!” Brian O.

She expressed how personable they both were and her confidence in their abilities.” – Tod K.

“Robert Crivello was my first experience with a lawyer and he made the experience a fantastic one. Attorney Crivello represented my son in a complex case regarding a canine attack. He was well versed in both current laws and knowing what my family’s needs would be during a very difficult time. His approachable and winning demeanor made our family very comfortable. He and the staff at Cannon & Dunphy S.C. were seemingly always available to answer any questions we had at such a chaotic time of surgeries, hospital stays and doctor visits. My impression of lawyers is forever changed because of the compassionate attention given to my son’s needs! I would recommend Cannon & Dunphy S.C., specifically Robert Crivello, for any and all personal injury needs.” – Stacy H.

But, I am reassured to know that if there would be a problem, you are there. It has been very nice working with you and I wish you well personally and professionally.” – Mary S.

He worked tirelessly for me, even though my case was smaller than he may be used to. I received excellent advice along the way, and the outcome was far greater than I expected. Mr. Crivello is a dedicated, intelligent and kind person. I never doubted I chose the right attorney and law firm.” – Patricia W.

“Thank you for your excellent representation in my personal injury claim. It has been a genuine pleasure to have your expertise, counsel and guidance. I am very pleased with the result of your efforts on my behalf. Throughout these many months you have, at all times, been professional, articulate, detailed, compassionate, personable and supportive in every way needed. I cannot thank you enough for making this difficult, protracted and, at times, distasteful process tolerable. Your knowledge and expertise; your patience explaining each and every step; presenting scenarios; risks and/or benefits; answering my questions; was an enormous factor in ensuring that each discussion and choice I made was fully informed and made with complete confidence. As busy as I knew you were, I never felt rushed or that you were not giving my every concern, large or small, your complete attention.” – Mary K.

“I was involved in a car accident that resulted in injuries,. My team of attorneys could not have been better. I was pleased with the way I was treated from the minute I walked through the doors at Cannon & Dunphy’s offices. I was treated with respect and kindness by their staff, and without out their expertise, my case would not have had the same outcome in court as it had. They respected me, my feelings and beliefs throughout every step. Never was I a number to them. I cannot speak highly enough of Sarah Kaas and Robert Crivello. Thank you, your reputation speaks of your hard work and the job you did for me.” – Kathy R.
