"The following is some feedback of my experience of having Tally Vanounou as our lawyer for my daughter’s case. My daughter was injured in a training session involving a treadmill. This case was a lengthy and difficult process for my family. The first time we met Tally she was honest and upfront and explained to us that this would be a lengthy and difficult case and that she was willing to take it on. This injury was very difficult for me as it involved my daughter’s health and Tally was very understanding and sympathetic to the challenges my daughter and I were going through. Tally did extensive research and was extremely resourceful in coming up with evidence to prove our case. She was thorough and kept in touch by sharing information and next steps. Her assistance Alejandra was very supportive and helpful as well. Anytime I had questions or was frustrated about the case both Tally and Alejandra were just a phone call away and ready to answer any questions I had and lend a listening ear. This was extremely reassuring as I was always aware and informed of our case. Two years later our case was resolved and we settled for an amount that was beyond our expectations. Our case was settled in mediation and Tally really put up a fight to ensure that we were offered a fair settlement to provide for any future medical needs my daughter may have. Tally is a lawyer who will support you and be honest and give you clear and accurate advice. She is persistent, hardworking and strives for your best interest. Tally to us has become not only our lawyer, but a compassionate sincere person and friend who still keeps in touch concerned about our daughter’s health and well being. Thank you Tally for your kindness, your determination and dedication to our family and our case."


"I was 15 years old when I got injured and my parents and I decided Tally Vanounou would be our lawyer. From my first meeting with Tally she was very understanding and compassionate to everything I was going through. When I had to attend discovery I was really nervous, sad and upset and Tally sat beside me to make sure I was okay. She always explained to me what was going on and acknowledged the way I felt. Tally gave me a heads up on the questions and advised me to just be honest and to be myself. She was always really nice and kind to me which really meant a lot. Tally always gave me her support and made it known to me that she was there for me anytime if I had any questions. Thanks Tally for everything."


"Once I decided to pursue legal action (after my motor vehicle accident), I interviewed several attorneys.  Most were not really interested in my minor injury case. Tally was actually recommended to me by another legal firm and I knew immediately she was right for me:  she was the only one to empathize with me as an injured person needing legal help.  From the beginning Tally has demonstrated the right balance between professionalism and compassion.   She has always shown concern for my well being and pushed to get support for the appropriate assessments and treatments.   She is friendly and accessible as is her supporting team.   Tally is a determined, aggressive lawyer yet she sets sound, realistic expectations.   During the process, she provided legal counselling and personal coaching to ensure I was prepared for the next step or event. For example, prior to the mediation event, we sat and discussed what would happen, what I should be prepared to say or to hear, what to expect if we did not settle the case, etc..   In the end, we succeeded in settling the case and it was a huge relief for me.

I would recommend Tally as legal counsel because she offers knowledge, experience and drive along with compassion, warmth, and understanding.  An unbeatable combination!"

Thank you,

"When I was hit by a truck a few years ago I was recommended to the law offices of D'Angela Fox Vanounou. From the moment of my first phone call to my case finally being settled recently all of the staff at DFV Law have been exceedingly patient and kind. Everyone made sure to explain to me the full extent of my options regarding benefits as well as being extremely honest about the course my case would take. They were extremely professional and made sure not to promise anything that they didn't believe they could deliver on. I appreciated more than anything how promptly they responded to questions that I had either by phone or by email.

At every step of the process, I had a representative of DFV law by my side making sure I was getting treated fairly by insurance company. Tullio D'Angela was an immense help during the process as well as simply being a warm, friendly person I could speak easily with. Not only is he an adept lawyer, he was also just a sympathetic person when I needed that. He took the time to fully explain how the process worked, set very realistic expectations for me and set me at ease. As someone who's never had any sort of dealings with the law before it was very comforting to have such a capable lawyer at my side, but also just a kind person who can explain things to me in non-technical terms.

I have no doubt that the lawyers and support staff at D'Angela Fox Vanounou are some of the best at what they do, as well as extremely warm, kind and personable individuals. To everyone there, support staff and lawyers, thank you for fighting on my behalf to bring this situation to a resolution and settlement that I believe is fair to me. "

No one wants to suffer the consequences of a car accident and a resulting concussion.

I’m so grateful that after my accident a friend recommended I contact Tally Vanounou at D’Angela Fox Vanounou LLP. The professionalism and responsiveness of her team and their commitment to service made managing the legal maze unproblematic. I remain deeply impressed with the skill, understanding, and sensitivity that Tally’s team brought to this unfortunate ordeal.


After my accident DFV Law put me in touch with health professionals to guide me through my recovery and handled my case promptly with great care. The level of professionalism, empathy, and kindness displayed by Tally and her team is truly above and beyond.


Trust: A firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability or strength in someone or something.

Trust is a virtue that is usually earned between people over time and experience. Having found myself dealing with the fallout of a motor vehicle accident one can only reach out blindly and hoped for the best. So, I reached out and I received the best.

From our very first meeting with Tally Vanounou I was struck by her directness and her sincerity. Moving forward every action she took on behalf of myself or my family only strengthened my trust in her.

Tally’s’ accessibility is huge proof of her sincerity to my well-being. It’s hard to build faith in a person if you can’t communicate with them and Tally was always there, ready and willing to explain, council and most importantly encourage me. This would apply also to the staff Tally has around her. Always responsive to my inquires and always kind and patient with my ignorance of all things insurance.

These were important as the case proceeded but Tally’s abilities as a lawyer were clearly evident through the successful settlement of our case. She has insured that I can continue with my recovery and that it can be done at a safe and healthy pace. A great feat in a what many know to be a tight-fisted industry.

What will always stand out in my mind though was when I experienced a physical or mental setback in my recovery Tally’s’ involvement was immediate. If there was nothing she could do in a legal capacity she would take the time to speak, share and reassure not only me but just as importantly my wife. Not 9-5 Mon-Fri, but at the moment the crisis was upon us. Her empathy to my frustrations of recovery were uncanny and receiving supportive emails from her, out of the blue, in those dark moments completely changes your perspective. You see that is where the difference lies, lawyers can handle your case but only sincere caring people can help handle emotions. Tally did both.

It’s so very difficult to encapsulate everything we have journeyed through in a couple paragraphs but the reality is this. I hired a lawyer, I gained a true friend and I would be confident to give her anything, at anytime and anywhere because I trust her entirely. No one has earned it more.

Our thanks forever Tally

I just to thank you again for representing me yesterday in the mediation and handling my law suit. It was very kind of the mediator to pass along opposing counsel’s comment that your opening argument made an impact on their decision to settle. It’s always good to hear that! If the opportunity arises for me to recommend your services, please know that I will!

I don't know how I would have got through this whole process over the past 3 years if it wasn't for all of you.

- Laya, you fought really hard on my behalf and I will definitely send people your way if they need a lawyer
it is much appreciated

- Dawn, you were especially nice and very informative when I had questions.

- Vince, I only met you once or twice at the beginning but you are the one who started the process and convinced me that I was in the best hands.

I am definitely one HAPPY client

Thank you for your hard work


Thanks Tullio. You helped me get back on my feet after losing so much. Hugs from your friend always.

My family met Tally during a very difficult time in our lives. Without knowing anything about the legal processes involved in a situation like ours, Tally showed our family kindness and support throughout the entire experience. Tally went above and beyond and we couldn't have put the lives of our family in better hands. I endorse Tally without any reservations.

As a single Mom of 3 boys, being unable to work due to an injury sustained in a car accident was very stressful. I resisted the idea of getting a lawyer and attempted to navigate my insurance coverage alone. It made my life very overwhelming. When I finally decided to get help, I contacted Ms. Vanounou. She and her staff were so warm and welcoming that I knew immediately I had made a good choice. I know that I wouldn't have been able to heal and recover from this without the support of D'Angela Fox Vanounou LLP.

I have wanted to express my gratitude for months now since our settlement and I have struggled to find the words to express the impact that you had on my life. I have read testimonials that others have written about their lawyers and you are all of that but so much more. Yes, you did an amazing job as my lawyer, fighting for my rights, for the allowable compensation as a result of the serious and permanent injuries I sustained from my accident.
I am fully satisfied with the settlement I received and knowing that my future medical needs will be taken care of.

What most people, including myself, don’t realize when they are choosing their legal representation after their accident is that this person is about to become one of the most important people in your life from this point until your file is closed and while the final compensation is important to make sure that your needs are taken care of, for many lawyers this is their ONLY concern as it is how they make their money.

I always knew that you were different, starting with your regular emails just checking in on me, your responsiveness to my erratic and panicked phone calls and emails with questions, but even that can all be explained by a really effective lawyer “just doing her job” well. It wasn’t until meeting others that had been in accidents and hearing them complain about how difficult it was to communicate with their lawyers, even to get a response by email, that I realized how good I had it. You are definitely the exception, not the norm in the industry!

The (first) moment I knew that you were really special, that you cared about the person and not just the “file", was when you called me one Saturday after receiving an email from me. I’m not sure if you will even remember it, but you must have picked up on something I said because you called me right away and I’m not sure I would be here today if you hadn’t. I confided things in you that day that I couldn’t even tell my own family because I had become so isolated. You became a part of my inner circle that day and helped to coordinate the care that I needed. You are an integral part of the reason that I am standing here today and while I can never have the life I had before the accident back, because of your help I am continuing to work towards healing and finding my new path.

With you I feel I got the best of both worlds, someone who fought until the bitter end to advocate for what was just compensation, for my rights as an insured person and to make sure that I was protected from the bullying tactics of the insurance company, as well as a kind, compassionate, empathetic soul who was able to hold me up through the really tough process of navigating the insurance system while recovering from an accident.

Tally, you are a very special person and the work that you do to advocate for people who can’t advocate for themselves at a time when they are vulnerable, in a system that is complicated and in my opinion unjust, is such important work. I hope that all of your clients realize how blessed they are to have you in their corner.


You’ve done such a great job representing Hillary and I really appreciated you taking the case when most law firms thought it was too complex and above the average knowledge of a personal injury lawyer.

Thank you for your hard work, your dedication and always keeping Hillary’s best interest at heart. I must say, it was very refreshing to deal with someone as ethical, caring and passionate about what they do. You made things go easier than I had anticipated and your thoughtful guidance was truly appreciated!

You and your team were always a phone call away when I had questions and now looking back I can’t imagine what we would have done without you.

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction! I am very impressed with your practice and will gladly refer family and friends in the future.



I am delighted to recommend Tally Vanounou as counsel in personal injury cases.

My own case involved a significant injury from a fall from my roof. As my lawyer, Tally had to deal with complex issues of personal fault and roofing technicalities. I couldn’t have been in better hands. She took great care to have me understand the complexities of the case and the process of mediation in which I would be involved. At the mediation itself, her presentation of my case was clear and strong, and her handling of the negotiation was effective and transparent. I was especially impressed by her mastery of the technical problems involved, which, quite frankly, would have left me bewildered without her patient explanation. I should say, too, that Tally, along with her staff, could not have been more gracious or more welcoming at their offices. Finally, I should note that my wife and I were very pleased with the settlement won – a good deal higher than friends in the legal profession had predicted.

Dear Tally,

I want to thank you very much for the manner in which you and your team handled my Personal Injury Claim.

Last year on September 18, 2013 I was unfortunately knocked unconscious by a driver while crossing a pedestrian crosswalk near my home. As a result, I had sustained serious personal injuries. After two weeks my sisters were advised to retain a lawyer. Their lawyer, Andrew Fine, with whom they have been dealing with for many years regarding real estate and wills, referred us to you.

Your initial visit to me at the hospital, even though I was in a considerable amount of pain and discomfort, made me confident that I would be in good hands with you as counsel, and you assured me that I did not have to worry about anything.

From my initial contact, you and your team have been extremely caring, kind and compassionate in recognizing all of my needs. Some of these included the close monitoring of my stay at the hospital, rehab facility, a temporary stay at a senior’s home, arranging for the inspection of my home and making minor changes to ensure my safety there. All of these needs required professional expertise and your choices were quality ones which helped in my recovery process. In addition, you made an excellent choice of an occupational therapist who continues to monitor my home care and transportation needs.

Insofar as dealing with the authorities and insurance matters, I felt that you and your team ensured my interests were considered and looked after in a very capable, caring and efficient manner.

I really appreciate everything you have done, and again, thank you.

Fatmata Kamara

Dear Tullio,

I would like to take this opportunity (on behalf of my Father) to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for all your (and your team’s) hard work and relentless effort in obtaining a positive outcome in my father’s legal battle.

No doubt it was one of the most emotional situations my family has ever been in, and I felt throughout the process that you (and your team) went over and beyond your duties to resolve the matter as quickly and fairly as possible.

Your confidence and assurance helped us tremendously in coping with the process, nevertheless you were always truthful and forthright. I was always kept in the loop and was educated and informed throughout the lawsuit. Your patience and professionalism were impressive.

You couldn’t have been more thorough and accurate, especially since this was complicated and complex in that you had to deal with the language and long distance barriers.

Again, I would like to thank you for all the amazing work you performed.
