Alex C. Turnello
My name is Alex Turnello, and I’m an associate attorney with Martin, Harding and Mazzotti. There is no amount of money that can compensate people for some of these injuries and, you know, we do our best but, you know, at the end of the day, it’s these people that are gonna be having to live with that for the rest of their lives.
So, what matters most to me is establishing good relationships and rapport, and getting to know the clients, and being more than just their attorney. You know, being someone that they can lean on, you know, they can ask you questions as a counselor and they can also ask you questions as a friend. You know, I wanna be able to speak with the client and let them know that I’m interested in their case and I’m interested in them and their life as well.
I’ve got a lot of passions outside of work. My main passion first and foremost is soccer. So even though I didn’t become a professional soccer player like I wanted to, I still pretend, you know, I’ll throw the USA uniform on and get out there and, you know, hack it around a little bit. I also spent a lot of time with my dogs. We go hiking, camping, any traveling I enjoy. And, of course, getting to spend time with my girlfriend and my family is always on the top of my list.
Yeah, it’s very exciting to get to work with people that share your same values and that was immediately something that I picked up on with the firm that these are people that care more about making sure that the clients’ lives get pieced back together as best as they possibly could. And a lot of times when you’re dealing with personal injuries, you know, you can’t make the injury better in some cases, you know, the fracture will heal, but a lot of times, there’s lingering pain, there’s arthritis. And so getting to do the extra things to try and, you know, make that client’s life that much better, it’s something Martin, Harding and Mazzotti strives to do, and it’s something that I see every day in different ways.
