"I learned about Ms. Mills by hunting on the internet for a domestic violence service provider in Gadsden and learned that although the local shelter had closed its doors temporarily, she was on its board. I began to pursue her." "...she was extraordinarily helpful, very concerned about the well-being of our client and her baby, and readily agreed to assume the Alabama representation...." "Ms. Mills quickly became an indispensable part of the team of lawyers working on Ms. ...'s case...working pro bono." "One of our law graduates accompanied our client and her baby to the court appearance in Alabama. She described Ms. Mills' excellent preparation of our client and a witness the evening before the hearing, and her extraordinary trial work, which included direct examinations of Ms. ... and the good Samaritan as well as a devastatingly effective cross examination of Ms. ...'s abusive husband. The decision Ms. Mills obtained was far better than anything we would have received in court in New York City. Words are inadequate to express the depth of Sanctuary's gratitude for Ms. Mills' generosity, compassion, and exemplary pro bono services."

"Greg Cusimano and Betsy Wells were extremely helpful to me in finalizing the estate of my late husband, Colonel Donald P. Kelly, Jr. Greg and Betsy were kind and understanding at a time of great sorrow for me and for my family. I never felt pressured to do any of the required documents to settle the estate. They showed great patience toward me as I filled out the many documents required to finalize the estate. I would highly recommend the firm of Cusimano, Roberts & Mills, LLC."

"The law firm of Cusimano, Roberts and Mills has represented me personally and my business for many years. I have known Greg personally for over 25 years. Their attorneys have assisted me in several business decisions. We consult with them on a regular basis both personally and professionally. They are an integral part of our business. I look forward to a continued relationship for years to come."

"From the moment I arrived in Greg's office my eyesight was amazed and fully engaged with the plaques, awards, trophies, magazine covers and books with Mr. Greg Cusimano's name on ALL of them. If an attorney was a rock star, Greg would clearly be BONO of U2. The level of his success was formidable and intimating and INSPIRING. I became less concerned with what all he had won/earned and more intrigued by how he won/earned them.
When you study successful people, you learn that people have different motives for success. Some are out to prove their capability, their worth. Some are trying to win over the love/acceptance of a father. Some are selfish with their success and would not share a morsel of knowledge with you for fear you might rival them. They are the ones who enjoy being a HAVE and look down at the Have Nots and keeping them there! Greg Cusimano does not fall in any of those categories. He is a brilliant, simple, humble man who truly likes people. All people. His father was an immigrant, and not just a heinz 57 immigrant thrusted into the Melting Pot of the New America. His father was Sicilian. A family where determination was as important as the homemade marinara. For with any deviation of those recipes, failure would be the certain outcome. Greg remembers stories of his father speaking of the great injustice and discrimination of KKK members burning crosses in his yard. Greg remembers being Catholic, Italian, Sicilian as a child in America. A child in the SOUTH! Gadsden, Alabama.
So Pop recognized early if he wanted his son to be successful, or even have a half of a chance on the equal playing field, he would have to have guidance. Greg paid attention when his Pop said, "You gotta be faster, you gotta be smarter, you gotta be better, when you're Catholic and Sicilian.
As a young man Greg had the opportunity to see truth, and beauty, discrimination and the ugliness of hate. The bitterness of broken hearts wronged by the greedy rich. And the decent successful families torn down by the greedy hands of charlatans.
Law has changed a great deal over the years. Greg continues to fight the good fight. To speak his vision of the idealist, and of windmill chargers who are not afraid. Charging ahead in what appears to be a delusional world for an impossible dream. It is the man of principle like Greg Cusimano who will continue to charge the windmill and defeat evil. It is my belief when Greg Cusimano walks into his office and the morning light from downtown Gadsden casts it shadows on the dozens of plaques and trophies, I think he sees the faces and the files that brought that recognition. It is the people he has helped, and the lives his determination and commitment changed that he is most proud of in his lifetime of achievement. The families who's lives were brought meaning is what truly motivates Mr. Greg Cusimano to keep charging Windmills."
