My sister survivor Clara Balcacer-Colon, who is battling CANCER was insulted in the worse way by her attorney!! Terrance Annese screwed up the paper work for her part of her ex husbands pension. This attorney is located in Medford, NJ.

I quote my sister "HE" told our sister survivor of Police Officer Involved Domestic Violence and of Cancer!!! He called her a Latina piece of shit, he told her to die already!!! This man did this to our sister survivor. When will idiot like this get it...We do suffer by the abuse of our ex but....It is unethical to continue to treat us like we are worthless.

I accompanied my daughter because she heard the same advertisement on the radio....First we sat for several hours waiting for a sales person. For a 2013 mini van with 41,000 miles and no alarm, cloth seating and the vehicle fired back, would you believe they wanted $23,000 dollars for the van. Shame on this dealership and your false advertisement. I must applauded my daughter, because her friend advised her Buddy Matt, to have her older brother George, run the car through Kelley Blue Book and the car was only valued between 18,000 - 16,000. I am so proud of my daughter....Mami did not raise no dummy!!!
