    • I recommend James Riotto.

    As a Paramedic my driving record is very important in maintaining employment. Mr Riotto, was quick and effective in mitigating my traffic violation. He was able to reduce the points to an acceptable limit for my employer and allow me to continue practicing as a Paramedic.

    • I recommend James Riotto.

    James Riotto was able to assist me in a traffic matter in a manner that exceeded my expectations. He remained attentive to my concerns and was wonderful with his communications. I never once had to worry about what was going on with my case as he demonstrated I was in very capable hands. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of his services. He was very pleasant, knowledgeable and exceedingly easy to work with. Thank you so much Mr. Riotto for your assistance.

    • I do not recommend James Riotto.

    If you don't have the money to pay out of pocket to give this attorney and you have him as your public defender attorney than you must beware of him, especially if he is handling your parole violation incarceration case and if you have already an existing criminal felony and can't pay him privately, He comes off as biased. I'd recommend you seek out other attorneys for consults. He doesn't return calls or keep you informed even if the parolee grants their permission to consult with him.

    James is the best! I had some tickets from when I was a teenager and 20years later needed help taking care of them. Not only did he take care of them but exceeded my expectations. I had no additional points given to me and the fines were not too bad. I will recommend James to everyone I know. thank you so much!

    • I recommend James Riotto.

    Thanks for getting my two tickets reduced to a single parking ticket with no points! What sold me was that you did not do any hard sales, answered all the questions I had, and also warned me of potential negative consequences when fighting the tickets. The process of supplying you the necessary information was quick and simple. The communication was superb and someone at your office always responded to my questions within several hours or less. Overall, I had a great experience hiring my first traffic lawyer.

    I was traveling from my home in Michigan through Rochester to Boston. I got a ticket for speeding near Rochester which I thought was undeserved. I called the Law Offices of James Riotto and was walked through the process or handling the ticket and what to expect. Mr. Riotto called me with the results and I was very happy. He and his staff were always friendly, informative, and very responsive. I made the right choice and wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

    When I got an inane ticket for not using my turn signal, Mr. Riotto was the first attorney to show up in an online search of available attorneys in Monroe County, and there's no surprise why. From what I saw, Mr. Riotto was highly qualified and more than capable to handle anything I might need him for. I did a little bit more searching, but it was clear that Mr. Riotto was the best attorney in the area. When the smoke cleared and everything was said and done, Mr. Riotto could not have done a better job. Instead of getting points added onto my license that would drive up my insurance for the next decade, Mr. Riotto got the ticket reduced to a simple, incredibly affordable fine. I am highly pleased with his level of skill and professionalism, and I know in the future that if I ever need an attorney again, I will not hesitate to call Mr. Riotto. When you need an attorney, I hope you call on him too.

    Jim handled a DWI and several other related matters for my son, and did an outstanding job. Jim kept us well-informed, was very responsive, professional and knowledgable . The outcome Jim achieved was better than we expected, and I would highly recommend his firm! I didn't have to think twice about where to turn when I later received a traffic ticket myself...thanks Jim!

    I met Mr. Jim Riotto on a Saturday morning when I needed support and help - from the moment he was immediately available and took my call until the last meeting we had Jim's guidance and professionalism were outstanding. His knowledge and experience are second to none and he is obviously respected in the court room. Without hesitation or question I would recommend Jim's services to anyone who would need any type of representation. This man is a friend as much as he is outstanding council.
