Awards and Distinctions

Mr. Auricchio has earned a number of distinctions during his legal career.

“Probably the coolest thing I have ever had happen, and it does happen once in a while, is when a client’s mother comes up and gives me a hug after their child’s case is concluded.  I’ve been really fortunate to get some really great ones,  from mothers that are relieved and grateful.  I highly recommend accepting hugs from clients and their families.  Even Dads.  It’s just a really great feeling to know that you’ve made a difference, and the client realizes it.” -Jamie Auricchio
