Ralph handled my family affairs with such professionalism and clarity that I would recommend him to others. Not only was he responsive, but I felt like I was in safe hands. I can't recommend him enough.
Our family worked with Ralph to resolve urgent visitation issues. He had the breadth of knowledge to not only help us advocate for our child, but to become more proactive than we had previously been when trying to help her on our own. He is professional and thorough, and we had every confidence after having screened other family lawyers that we had chosen the best.
I've relied on Mr. Santoro to provide good, safe and sound legal advice for years. He is prompt to return my calls, respectful and thorough. He doesn't like to lose.
Ralph was able to provide accurate and timely advice to me. He always gave me several options and the risks with each option. He always followed up my questions with a quick text or email. If he could not answer right away he would let me know when he would get back to me and he did.
He is easy to talk to, down to earth and made it easy to discuss a difficult topic.
Ralph gave me great advice about how to accomplish my goals, but better yet, he gave me some other options to consider that I had not previously considered. I would refer him to
anyone I know who needs legal advice or representation. He is a great advocate both in deciding how to act, and a great representative once one chooses their path.
He dragged out my case telling me to trust him. Then messed everything up at the end. He made decisions that affected my case without consulting me or explaining the consequences of his decisions. Do not trust him! When it comes to your child, this is NOT the attorney you want.
I respect Mr. Santoro very much! He was honest and direct with me from the very beginning. He could have easily beat around the bush like the everyday lawyer; however, he focused on facts and law. He was thorough, knowledgeable, direct, aggressive, and confident. He counseled my Move Away request (which is not an easy thing to be granted) and I was granted to relocate to my home state. I would recommend this lawyer to anyone who is looking for a lawyer to fight for what they want.
Ralph Santoro says what you want to hear but does not deliver. He has no respect for judges or his clients. I do not recommend this attorney or his firm. I advise you to find someone who is not trying to make a name for himself but knows the law. The only thing he did for me was bill me a lot of money and put me in debt.
A week before my family court hearing I was extremely upset with how my case was being handled by my previous attorney. I thought it would be an easy case but after my ex started making false accusations towards me along with his girlfriend and friends of theirs, I knew I needed a lawyer who was aggressive. From the first day I spoke with Mr. Santoro I knew everything would be ok. He is extremely knowledgeable with family law and made the most stressful time of my life a lot easier to deal with. He was well prepared for my hearing after such sort notice and still got me the outcome I wanted. The only thing I regret was that I did not hire him sooner.
Mr. Santoro helped me out in 2011 as we fought a move-away. He was conscientious and responsive. He worked hard to make sure he understood all the nuances of my case, and he aggressively represented me. If you want an attorney who you will be honest with you and someone you feel like you'll be able to relate to as you work together, Mr. Santoro will be a good choice.
