What is the Distasio Personal Touch?

The Distasio Personal Touch means we will take the time to fully understand your case and go the extra mile to represent you. This starts with making our team available for a free consultation any time or day of the week.
We recognize this is a traumatic time in your life. You or your loved one did not choose to be injured by the negligence of someone else. We cannot undo the pain and suffering you may have endured. We can, however, hold the negligent party responsible for their actions.

You deserve a law firm that will listen to your concerns and fight hard to make the person that did this take responsibility for the damages they have caused. We will always put your interests first. You will always be able to speak with a lawyer about your case. We will be your advisor and your advocate. You are our top priority.


We gather all the important photographs, documents, interview witnesses, and we gather all your medical records. While we focus on gathering the evidence to prove your case, you can focus on getting the medical care you need.

Once we have gathered everything needed and your doctor writes a report indicating you have reached maximum medical improvement, we will put a settlement demand package together and send it to the other side. In most cases, we can negotiate a settlement without having to file a lawsuit. If not, all is not lost. Scott Distasio is a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer, and if your case requires it, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf and go to trial when they do not offer enough to fully compensate you for your losses.

Injury victims receive a larger settlement with the aid of a qualified lawyer vs. going at it alone.

Only about 2% of all personal injury cases ever go to trial.

Not all lawyers are alike. Many have never set foot inside a courtroom. In fact, a lot of law firms hire us to try their cases in court for them.

Insurance companies only care about making a profit. That is why they went into business.


To do everything in our power to hold negligent wrongdoers accountable for the injuries and damages they have caused our clients.

Every team member of the Distasio Law Personal Injury Law possesses the following core values:


We have empathy for our clients struggles and are committed to making a positive difference in their lives. We know they are often bitter and frustrated because of what happened to them. We listen to their concerns and do everything in our power to address them. As a result, our clients want their family and friends to know that if they are hurt, we can help.


We constantly push ourselves to be our best, we focus on solutions, and we arrive every day inspired to make an impact. When necessary, we are prepared to arrive early or stay late to get the job done. We produce excellent work product on time with no mistakes or misstatements of law or fact.


We are fearless in putting our clients’ interests first and we are relentless in getting the best results for them without ever showing weakness.


We know that truth and honesty cultivate trust and trust leads to better communication. As a result, we are truthful with each other, our clients, and our peers. We have no tolerance for politics and hidden agendas. When we say something, we mean it.


We care about each other and don’t talk behind each other’s backs. We help each other when needed. We know that if we are loyal to the firm, the firm will be loyal to us.


I promise Distasio Personal Injury law will do everything in its power to provide you with the personal service and attention you expect in the process of holding whoever harmed you accountable for their actions.

What Our Clients Have
to Say About Us

Our Promise to You

We have our own set of rules here when it comes to communicating with and on behalf of clients. If we agree to take your case, you can expect the following from our team:

  • We will commit the financial resources and time your case deserves.
  • We will be proactive in providing updates on your case’s progress.
  • You will always be able to speak to a personal injury lawyer about your case.
  • We will always put your interests ahead of the law firm’s interests.
  • In private, we will advise you of the good and the bad so that you fully understand all the possibilities of your case.
  • In public, we will advocate strongly on your behalf and never show any weakness.
  • We will take your case to trial if it makes sense to do so.

Ultimately, we are here to listen and fight for you so that you feel confident in your ability to move past this challenging time.

As your legal representatives, our main priority is to secure the compensation you need with as little stress and delay as possible. Often, this means negotiating a settlement with the at-fault party’s insurer. However, we want you to know that our team will never shy away from taking your case to the courtroom.


We Want to Do What is Best for You and Your Case

Our lawyers have taken many types of personal injury cases to trial and won, from those involving car accidents to negligent security. If we believe it is necessary to file a lawsuit, we will let you know and leave the final decision up to you. Going to court does not change the fact that we work on a contingency-fee basis, so you will still owe nothing unless we win.

Supporting Our Community

At Distasio Law Firm, we believe in supporting our community beyond the legal space. When we’re not seeking compensation from negligent parties for our clients, we’re providing funds to college-bound students through our scholarships. The prompts we use center on topics we see impacting the community every day in our work.

For example, in our Distraction-Free Driving PSA Scholarship, we encourage applicants to create videos that educate their peers on the dangers of distracted driving. We also offer a Birth Injury Survivor Scholarship in which applicants can share their stories.

Our firm wants to reward students for their hard work and courage in the hopes of making the world a safer and more empathetic place for us all.
