In her 35 years at Clark, Gagliardi & Miller, she has achieved an outstanding track record for successfully prosecuting and resolving the claims of injured plaintiffs. Her individualized attention has resulted in many clients who are more than just satisfied. They recognize, and are grateful for her tenacity and caring. As one recent client wrote:

“Lucille, we can never thank you enough for all you have done for us. Not only as an outstanding attorney, but also your kindness and caring led us through a very complex and scare process. You are awesome and we will always be grateful.”

Another client wrote:
