Client Reviews

We were very fortunate to find Mr. Malatesta to handle a potential job loss after 22 years in a public servant role. He had a great strategy and handled the matter efficiently. We are very grateful for a positive outcome. We highly recommend him!

Krista L.

Frank is an excellent attorney,with a very family like approach. He makes you feel completely comfortable, which enables you to tell your truth. I hope I never need a attorney again..but if I do I’m most certainly calling on Malatesta Law Office. (His paralegal Melody is an absolute sweetie pie.)

Taiya Moore

Frank went up against a juggernaut of a large financial company ( complete with a large team of lawyers on staff ) - Frank won my case ! Not only did he get my job back, he was able to negotiate backpay for me too. Mr. Malatesta is as genuine as they come , very fair with pricing - the level of care...

Taryn Liberatore

Mr Malatesta made a difficult process very bearable. His confidence and knowledge of the labor law field gained my confidence since the beginning of his representation. I would recommend attorney Malatesta to anyone that is looking to be represented by the best!

Dominique Cumins

Frank did a great job on my case. Frank has always been there to answer my questions and put my mind at ease with legal questions that I have. Frank makes me feel like an individual and not a case file number. I definitely recommend him to everyone.
