Ed is admitted to practice in North Carolina.
Why He Loves Being a Part of SeiferFlatow: “What I have noticed that distinguishes us from other firms is our willingness to take on cases just about anywhere in the state. A lot of firms are afraid or unwilling to commit to taking on neighboring counties. We have developed excellent reputations in other counties; we have made great relationships with other attorneys and DAs. We get a lot of credit when speaking to other attorneys about our ability to reach beyond what others can or are willing to do. We are not just Charlotte attorneys (though we love our city!).”
Arcangela Mazzariello began her career as a political poller working on presidential campaigns across the country. Putting off her childhood aspirations of being an attorney as long as she could, she finally got down to business and went back to school. She graduated from St. Joseph’s College and City University of New York Law School at Queens College. Arcangela began her legal career as a prosecutor at the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office in New York City in the Domestic Violence Unit.
While visiting a friend in Gastonia, North Carolina, she saw a house that she knew she had to buy. The next thing she knew, she was studying for the North Carolina bar exam and has been here ever since, though she still prefers sauerkraut on her hot dogs.
While starting her career as a criminal defense attorney, a false arrest led to the birth of her first civil case - one that resulted in a $23 million verdict for her clients. Since then, she has tackled many false arrests, abuse of process, wrongful terminations, etc. As a matter of fact, for the past 22 years, Arcangela has been known as the attorney to see when no one else will listen.

Plaques on the wall, published papers, and high-profile cases don't necessarily mean you have the right attorney (though we do have those things). You need someone who is willing to tenaciously fight for YOU and go the distance. At SeiferFlatow, our team becomes your team for the duration of your case and beyond.
We know that clients come to us during stressful times in their lives, often overwhelmed and anxious. We will handle your case with professionalism and attentiveness, while communicating with you every step of the way. We will be honest with you about the likely outcomes and work with you to tackle what's ahead.
Staying current with changes in laws gives us an edge in the courtroom. We work through every scenario and work out a formidable game plan for each likely scenario so we, and you, are prepared. This approach means we will also be realistic with our clients and advise them on what's best for their outcome, not ours.
