Homes are for closers
My experience with Mr. Gallo and his office has been an absolute pleasure, as my family and I benefitted from his expertise, exceptional efficiency, and care throughout the home buying process. From the beginning of our home search, to contracting, and through closing, Mr. Gallo detailed the steps we needed to take to secure an agreeable purchase and confidently guided the process amongst all parties until the home's keys were in my hand. Vincent Gallo educates and elucidates, instills confidence, puts his client first, and gets you to the finish line.

FIRST CLASS SERVICE
Mr. Gallo! I've been using his services for a long time. I needed Mr. Gallo to save me from myself a lot of times! And he came through EVERYTIME. Would never work with anyone else in real estate dealings and the field knows about him and how good he is for his clients.

A lawyer that tells you what you need to know.
Mr. Gallo may not necessarily be the lawyer you want, however, he is the lawyer you need. His bedside manner leaves something to be desired but you don’t go to a lawyer to hear want you want to hear. You go to Mr. Gallo because he tells you what you need to hear. For this reason, I choose Mr. Gallo every time.

The best in the business
I have known and worked with Vincent Gallo for 40 years, and can honestly say that you could not choose a better attorney for your deal. He protects his clients' interests from contract to closing.  Vince knows how to simplify the deal and avoid any unforeseen pitfalls, while making sure his clients understand all aspects of the transaction.  From title search to closing, the firm of Vincent Gallo has everything under control; so much so that the other attorneys have come to rely on the accuracy of his closing statements.  I will always be grateful to Vince and his entire staff.

Great Attorney
Mr. Gallo handled a Real Estate Transaction for me (Sale of Property). He handled this in a very professional manner. Walking me thru the process step by step, making sure I understood the entire process. If you are looking for an honest and capable attorney Mr. Gallo should be your choice.

The best. You need look no further.
We’re well acquainted with Mr. Gallo and his firm, so we can speak from the head and the heart. Vince’s experience and attention to detail are legendary. He becomes familiar with every aspect of a deal and nothing escapes his notice. His integrity is beyond reproach. There are no shortcuts. Working with his handpicked team, you can be sure that everything is checked, then double-checked, to ensure that it’s done right. In the last fifteen or so years, Vince has handled three closings for us: two sales and a purchase. We recently completed that second sale. Each deal was a little different, but Vince and his team got each closed without drama. Like most people, real estate closings are outside our everyday experience. Vince always had us fully prepared. He provided guidance and support, upon request, or as he perceived a need. It was a great boost to our confidence, when entering an arena not our own. Most of all, Vince is tenacious in defending the interests of his clients. He always made sure our deals went smoothly, but when the inevitable bump in the road arose, no one involved had to wonder whose side Vince Gallo was on. Special mention must be made to Vince’s Paralegal, Taylor Murphy. She was unfailingly available, providing fast and accurate information, and getting the answers to any questions we had. They work together extremely well. The Gallo team is one we’ve known and trusted for many years. There simply aren’t enough good things we can say. If you need a real estate attorney, look no further.

Best Attorney on Staten Island
Vincent Gallo was my selling attorney. When you hire him, he makes you feel like you are his only client. He answers your calls immediately although staff is always available to help as well. When you have to make sure it’s done right, Vincent Gallo is the attorney you want on your side.

Great experience!!
Mr Gallo and staff are thorough, professional and we felt taken care throughout the sale of our home! We were weary but sold our home without a realtor and were successful since Mr Gallo was representing us.

The best real estate attorney on Staten Island!
Vincent Gallo represented me on both my real estate sale transaction on Staten Island and then on my New Jersey purchase transaction. The sale transaction started off with another attorney who, unfortunately, really screwed up my sale. I panicked. Gallo was them referred to me by my brother, Gallo jumped in, swiftly, he completely resolved the mess created by my prior attorney on my sale and both deals closed with no issues. I swear I didn't sleep for a month before Gallo got involved. And he was really fair as to his legal fees because I realize with all the added work he had to do, I wouldn't have been surprised if he banged me out and he was really very fair and reasonable. It was obvious why people say that he's the best real estate lawyer around. He really knows the law and he was in full control. I saw that for myself. I will be recommending him highly. Yuen Chen
