Atty Alioto has worked as Guardian ad Litem, Mediator, and Arbitrator on my custody/placement dispute. He has not been afraid to dig deep for the truth, even ordering a counselor for the kids and parents to end the he said she said that pervaded the situation. By doing so, and working with the counselor Joe has been able to see things for what they are, not the picture that has been painted by an attorney representing their client. The legal process takes time, it is not easy, and often is not fair but I've learned Atty Alioto will dig in his heals and work to find the truth in the situation which I cannot say has been my experience prior. Eventually the hidden dirty little secrets people hide come into the light if given the opportunity, Joe makes that happen. Our placement/custody issues have truly been sad for and hardest on my kids. Thankfully Joe is keeping the kids safety and well-being front and center.

Agreed to take my case and worked with me for over 6 months in a child custody case. Right before we were set to go to court he came to me and told me he was too busy to continue with my case. Originally, I spent over a month doing research to find him. Now, I was in the situation where more research, more time off work and more financial loss was inevitable. I would not recommend this attorney. I was devastated, as I put so much trust in him to get me through one of the toughest times in my life just to be let go right when I needed him the most.

Attorney Alioto was incredibly professional and truly did his best to make sure the case I was involved in was mediated fairly. The result was such that each side was content and understood the reasoning of the final decision. A real stand-up man. I wholeheartedly recommend his services.
