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

Flawless attention to detail and relentlessly efficient
Vincent Gallo Law Office is extremely efficient at all matters related to home selling and buying. We used Mr Gallo in 2012 to acquire our property and it was a “no brainer’ when it came to selling it in Spring 2021. This was a flawless process from start to finish. Super efficient, no nonsense, and if you get your paperwork in correctly and on time you can expect the same level of extreme attention to detail and relentless dedication to doing things right. All the staff were courteous and extremely helpful throughout our dealings and we couldn’t have been happier.
