Testimonials | Insurance Agency Bergen County NJ

“I have been a client of Gregg DeVasto of the Merwin & Paolazzi insurance agency since 2000. My parents were clients before me. My insurance requirements and demands have been quite unique over the past 15 years. Gregg & Mike Merwin and the other members of the M&P organization have stepped up on ‘many occasions’ to both meet my insurance needs as well as exceed my support expectations as a customer. I have now expanded my policy to include both of my children whom are now driving and I know they, like me and the rest of my family, are in great hands with M&P”
