Drunk Driving Accident? We Can Help.

At Marciano & MacAvoy, we strive to provide our clients with the kind of individual attention that just isn’t available from large law firms, ones often staffed by dozens of inexperienced junior associates. We don’t off-load our cases, and our clients won’t get lost in a bureaucratic system.

We understand how serious injuries can affect your life, and the last thing on our minds is becoming another burden. That’s why we only offer our legal services on a contingency-fee basis: you pay us nothing until we secure compensation in your case.
