Cindy Salvo is great!
I have used Ms. Salvo several times in the past to handle FDCPA/TCPA defenses for me and she always does a wonderful job. Cindy is dedicated to getting the best outcome for my company and goes above and beyond to resolve matters for us.

In my experience, NJ's best
In my opinion, which, unfortunately, is based upon much experience with lawyers, I would recommend Attorney Cindy Salvo as New Jersey's best. I had the good fortune to find Attorney Salvo when I desperately needed a real pro to file an appeal of an extraordinarily unfair court order that had been granted when I was acting pro se. The lower court had paid no attention to my arguments. Cindy took the case, listened to the facts, did the legal research, wrote an excellent fact-based and law-based appeal, and won a reversal of the major part of the trial court order. Cindy does what an attorney is supposed to do - she actually does the work required to do a good job - no short cuts: she listens, (this is where her psych degree comes in handy), she reads the file, she researches the law, she communicates, and she takes timely action. Cindy gives her clients their best chance at justice. Cindy is honest and bills in a reasonable manner. I would highly recommend Attorney Cindy Salvo.

Excellent Attorney and Person of Character
Cindy Salvo handled my lawsuit against my bank perfectly. My bank allowed theft of over $57,000 from my account and was extremely arrogant. They refused to refund my money despite me following their procedure to the letter. I was referred to Cindy by another attorney. Cindy took my case and beat the bank so bad they ended up refunding all of my money and even paying all of my attorney fees! Like anyone, I don't wish to have legal troubles. But if I do in the future, and the issue falls under Cindy's scope of practice, I will DEFINITELY use her again. I would HIGHLY recommend Cindy to anyone. If you want an attorney who works hard even until midnight or later communicating with you, who shows genuine interest in you as a client, and who will stick with you until you are satisfied with the outcome, hire Cindy. I am so happy with Cindy Salvo's level of performance I call her Salvo the Great!
