He knows his business
Angelo is sharp and thorough. He walked in the courtroom and told the DA what he wanted to happen and it happened. He is highly respected and well known in his field. He's been around a long time and his fees are exceptionally reasonable. I would not hesitate to use him if you're looking for a good 'gift of gab' attorney. He was a blessing to me. I plan to refer him to others.

Great lawyer!
Angelo was great. He was very open with his communication and was very on top of the paperwork. He always showed up early for hearings, and continuously advocated for the best outcome for me.

He represented me for a case where the bank released unauthorized funds that belonged me and he got quick results. We won our case!
