  • Peter Arcadio Romero

    Sal is a consummate professional. Among both employee and management labor and employment law attorneys, Sal is considered an authority --indeed, the "go to guy"-- on cases involving the payment of commission wages. I hold him in the highest regard and highly recommend him for employers and employees who seek quality representation.

  • Constantine G. Dimopoulos

    Sal's knowledge of employment law is stunning. He not only cites recent cases to discuss how the courts seem to be trending, but he discusses the dissenting opinions as well. An unreal knowledge of his area of the law...combined with a sensible, practical view of each case. In addition, he is known in his practice area and the respect he gets from opposing counsel really brings about an exceptional result for his clients.
