I initially hired this attorney for a collaborative divorce. Once it was obvious there would be no colloboration between my ex-wife and I , I should have run. David is a nice guy, if you want a nice guy who will basically agree with everything your spouse's attorney wants, he's your man. Once it got down to the nitty gritty, I had to come up with protections to write into the agreement and instruct Mr. Salvaggio how to proceed. For this he charged Me his fairly high hourly rate. The first time we had to appear in court, he sent his assistant who was an hour late which meant instead of the Judge hearing my case first, we were sent to the back of the line delaying me by 3 hours. Of course David charged me for those extra hours, though to be fair after arguing with him he knocked off those hours. Truthfully, he knew what happened and he never should have charged me. As I said, if you and your spouse have everything worked out, he's probably a decent pen pusher but if your heading for a contentious divorce, RUN from this attorney.

David and his staff are caring, warm, friendly and extremely knowledgable in their field. My calls were returned in a timely manner if David or his staff were unavailable to me at the time I called in. David explained to me in terms that I would understand what to expect in my legal process and made a very difficult situation a little more bearable knowing I was in good hands. David genuinely cares about his clients and it shows in his business work ethic. I'm truly grateful to have had David represent me and would recommend him hands down!

David did a great job of listening to my concerns and suggestions. He was very open and receptive to any ideas I had. He gave me the best advice for each aspect of my divorce process. I always felt he respected my wishes and had my best interests in the forefront of my settlement.

David Salvaggio charged me nearly $10,000 for a simple divorce case. He quoted me $3k to $5k initially but when I got billed, it far exceeded that amount. He did not have to collect any evidence, I did it already, he had to write 3 letters and appear in economic mediation. I went to fee arbitration who admitted he over charged me and he was forced to pay back some of the funds, admitting that he double charged. Lucky thing I checked my bill. He way over charged and then double charged. DO NOT USE THIS LAWYER!

I was this attorney's client. Not only me, my family members and my friends all felt this attorney did not protect my interest enough. He barely provides straight and clear answer to you problem , that is why I had to pay extra council fees to get more legal info while He was handling my case at the same time. Since he is very slow and hard reachable, it becomes very slow progress in your case. He was not doing things efficiently, which means you can end up getting a very high bill compared with other attorneys' service. I do not recommend this attorney at all.

Mr. Salvaggio spoke to me in such a way that I felt a real concern for my situation. He explained how we should proceed in a way that I felt confident that he had his hands fully around what was happening in my case. His responsiveness was fabulous! Everyone in his firm were helpful as well. Would highly recommend Mr. Salvaggio's professional help.

After a great deal of research to find the best New Jersey divorce lawyer for my situation, there was no doubt in my mind that Mr. David Salvaggio and his law group would be the right choice for my complex divorce case, and I was right. I received the best legal advice and representation I could ever have wished for. The divorce proceeded without incident, and I received everything I wanted in the settlement including the custody arrangement, which I was not willing to budge on.
I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Salvaggio. I told him during our first conversation that I wanted an attorney that would care as much about my case as if he were my father in that courtroom. I know it sounds funny, but I got that. I cannot thank him and his law group enough for working so hard for me and my child. We can now start over with peace of mind.

The Salvaggio Law Group provided me with excellent advice and representation when my former wife initiated an inappropriate process in the Morris County Court. The research conducted by the firm and the level of preparation that went into my defense in this complex situation, involving three different jurisdictions, was outstanding. The case was dismissed.
Throughout the very stressful process, I found David and the members of his firm to be very empathic and reassuring.
I would recommend the Salvaggio Law Group to anyone seeking family law counsel in Morris County.

As always, your attorney is only as good as you let him be. Being truthful and honest and having full disclosure with your attorney is the key to any successful result. David is a straight shooter. He never mislead me and on many occasions took the time to explain the ins and outs of child custody and what to expect. As I read the Morris County Bar Association's Code of Professionalism, I can without a doubt state that Mr. Salvaggio exemplifies the very core at the heart of this code. He is a trusted professional who truly cares about his clients and not just the bottom line. As a client who has needed Mr. Salvaggio's assistance over the last 3 years, it has been a long journey, but not one without great rewards. My 3 year old son’s future success in life will ultimately be the end result of Mr. Salvaggio’s hard work and dedication to excellence.

I have worked as a financial professional on several divorce cases with David. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and hard working. He genuinely cares for his clients, and gets superior results in all of the cases that I have particpated in. I would highly recommend him.
