Down to Earth Honest attorney
I hired Mr. Garofalo strictly based on his reviews and I could not have made a better choice. Being a Canadian resident and dealing with US courts may sometimes pose a challenge and incur mounting legal bills. Mr. Garofalo was very inexpensive and he properly explained the details of how our case could go and he was on the money. He negotiated two violations that would cost my son 8 demerit points and risk losing his licence down to two parking tickets and no points lost. We handled everything over the phone and he saved me lots of travelling expenses. If you are in need of a great lawyer do not hesitate to use Mr. Garofalo especially if you are an out of town offender and need legal representation.

thanks mr. garofalo
I hired Mr. Garofalo recently for a first-time offense. I was really nervous and kind of scared about the whole process. he was reassuring, down to earth, conscious and fair with his fees. I was happy with the outcome. I would certainly recommend if you need some legal advice/assistance in the Saratoga County area.

Friendly and prompt...
I had gotten a speeding ticket. Called around for quotes and Mr. Garofalo was by far, the most reasonable, with everyone else wanting $500 or more to retain their services. He gave me a quick consult over the phone, said I could see him the same day in less than an hour. I spoke and the in person consultation was painless. Said he knew the local court system well and could have things handled next Tuesday (from Friday). I paid him his fee and he contacted me on Wednesday and had gotten my speeding ticket reduced with no points. Simple, meet to sign some final paperwork and he'd follow up in a month. I would highly recommend, he's polite and professional without being unapproachable.

Best possible outcome
Greg helped me out on a DWI charge. I have never been in any sort of trouble ever, so this really made me freak out. Mr. Garofalo listened to me, reassured me, and completely explained the entire process as well as all outcomes. In the end, he was able to get an offer for me of a DWAI - a traffic violation. I’m young and in my last semester of nursing school and Greg understood how important it was for me to not have a criminal charge on my record. Not to mention, he is absolutely the most affordable attorney in the area and I promise you are not sacrificing quality because of that! Would recommend 10000x over, a very genuine guy

Trustworthy and Effective
I am very happy with the service that I received from Mr. Garofalo and the outcome. He represented me for a speeding ticket. I hired him based on the positive reviews. I live out of state and do not know how I would have managed otherwise. I highly recommend him.

Professional - worked hard to deliver results
My son needed local representation and we hired Attorney Garofalo. He guided us through a difficult situation, which was made even harder being so far away. He was patience and professional, achieving a better than expected result. I would highly recommend him.

Made a stressful event easy.
Mr. Garofalo represented me in a DWI case. I entered his office anxious and after a consultation, I felt much more confident. The charges were reduced and the outcome was just as we discussed. Thank you.

Amazing experience!
Contacted him one morning for a 80 in a 65 ticket and I was in there that afternoon for a consultation. Super quick and professional, straight to the point and I like that.

Small business owner in Saratoga
I received a ticket for a expired inspection on my work vehicle. I needed a mechanic for some specialized expensive repairs so needed more time to get the inspection done. Greg helped me get this taken care of with little effort on my part. He was professional and very personal about my situation. I ended up with no fine and no visit except to send in proof of new inspection.
