Cardelli Lanfear P.C. recently celebrated its 24th year anniversary.
The firm has approximately 30 employees covering the entire State of Michigan and beyond.

Although the firm is perhaps best known for its trial successes, a trial success is a product of excellent oral advocacy, accurate analysis of difficult legal issues, reliable counseling on how to approach legal issues, and confidence to persevere until the best possible result is achieved.

Although we are trial lawyers, our attorneys present a wide array of experience in the areas of insurance defense, insurance coverage practice, employment, professional liability, auto negligence, property damage, product liability, workers compensation, medical malpractice, professional malpractice, toxic tort, subrogation matters, appellate litigation and ERISA and health and welfare plans.

Congratulations to Thomas G. Cardelli, who has recently been inducted as a Diplomat in the National Board of Trial Advocacy, which is an American Bar Association approved Legal Specialty Practice Certification Association. Mr. Cardelli is one of only several attorneys in the state of Michigan who have this distinction.
