Rest assured Tuorto Law is on your side
If are in need of a attorney in the Asheville area look no further,Anthony Tuorto is a brilliant lawyer. I was arrested on a serious felony charge, from my first meeting with Mr.T i felt that he was passionate about my defense. I was kept well informed of every aspect of my case and the legal procedure, He's professional, knows the law inside and out and is well respected by his peers, he truly puts time and effort into getting you the best possible outcome in your case. I will be forever grateful for Mr. Tuorto and staff for all they did for me

Exemplary
Planned a strategic approach, accurately predicted results, case dismissed with good cause; in the end (a year-long battle), even recommended for dismissal by the DA. Tuorto is clearly respected, he dominates the room when he enters, and radiates a calm confidence in both poise & speech. Shows genuine concern for the client, proper informative support, prompt & courteous service across the board. Very professional in all aspects. Tuorto truly knows the system from the inside out (see his work history & other reviews).

Exceptional, 10/10
Attorney Anthoney exceeded my expectations as a lawyer. In fact, he managed to get all of my charges dismissed at court. I could not be more happier with the outcome. He is very personable and makes sure all your concerns and questions are addressed. He made this process go as smoothly as possible, and I was assured he would do a job well done. His assistant, Madelyn, is extremely helpful, caring, and friendly. She was always on top of things and was very organized. I cannot thank Turoto Law enough. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!

Good guy, great results
Anthony is one of the best attorneys I've ever had and I've had quite a few. I had multiple charges from 3 different incidents including 1 felony, 1 misdemeanor, and 4 misdemeanors. All were dismissed except 1 minor misdemeanor. This was amazing considering I already have a record. Not only was he great at his job but he was also the most pleasant lawyer I've ever had. Truly passionate and caring about my situation. Most lawyers I've had are condescending and smug but Anthony was a lawyer I actually looked forward to taking to. He is definitely my go to guy and God forbid I get into anymore legal trouble he will be the one taking care of it.

Best thing I ever did was hire Mr. Tuorto
This is by far the best legal experience I have ever had and with exactly the results I was hoping for. Mr. Tuorto handled my case professionally and I didn't even have to make a court appearance. While I was busy with my day job he was busy getting tickets thrown out on my behalf. If a police officer makes assumptions without proof and hands you a bunch of tickets don't stand for it! Lawyer up! Professional, timely, reliable contact, informative meetings and phone calls, great follow up.

This guy is on the ball!
I bet you will come to recommend Anthony Tuorto as I am doing now. He is professional and friendly. He listens carefully to understand quickly. He takes your input and follows through on what he says . In our case, he got the best possible results. Though I hope I never need to hire him again, if I ever do need another lawyer I will certainly call on Anthony.

First time experience that couldn't have put my at more ease
This was my first time having to deal with a legality problem and I was incredibly stressed about it. Luckily I had the pleasure of working with the Tuorto group on my case. Throughout the entire process I was told of my situation as well as possible outcomes, kept up to do throughout the entire thing, and called with the great news quickly that we had won! Everyone in the office was very kind and really there to help in any way. Not knowing much about law and my options I feel much safer knowing in the future if there were any troubles of any kind I would know who I could turn to, even if for simple questions. Everything was very very simple, I went in to sign my paperwork one day and Mr. Tuorto was very nice, professional and made me feel like his confidence in my case could let me feel confident in it as well. Alongside of Mr. Tuorto, he had an incredible staff, one of which Ms. Anderson was constantly available for any question I may have as well as being another to keep me up to date as well on my case. I do not wish upon anyone to have to deal with such things as court appearances, traffic violations, fines, etc. but if you are dealing with such, Tuorto law should be your first call. Especially if you are new to it all, as I was because I had no idea what my next steps were and they laid it out very easily for me. Not only did my case completely get dismissed, I didn't even have to go to court that day!!! I would have had to take a day from work, go down to the court room (which I would not have known where to go), wait and try to discuss my case on my own. With Asheville expanding and growing rapidly, police force is as well on more of a patrol than ever to keep the safety and things such as lack of seat belt, speeding, lack of registration, etc. are very quick reasons for a hefty fine now. If you ever find yourself dealing with anything of the sort, Tuorto Law should be your very first call. Thank you so much for helping me with my case and saving me a tremendous amount of money!

The Best Attorney Ever!
Anthony Tuorto is a miracle worker. This last summer, I was arrested on my first offense. While it was nothing serious, my reputation and clean record were in jeopardy. Not only did Mr. Tuorto help me get the charges dismissed, but he was also emotionally supportive during a trying time. I am very grateful, and would recommend him to anyone needing legal assistance.

Friendly and Professional with an Ideal Outcome
The Staff at Tuorto Law (Anthony and Madelyn) are both friendly and professional. Anthony was sympathetic to my situation and very thorough in helping me better understand said situation, my options, and the possible outcomes. Thanks to Anthony, my case was resolved with the ideal outcome in my favor, and I didn't even have to set foot in a courtroom. I highly recommend Mr. Tuorto for legal services. He is on your side.

Excellent and Compassionate Attorney and Staff
I hired Mr. Tuorto for a case in which he handled completely to my satisfaction. He is very professional and a compassionate man that out shined all of the other attorneys that I observed, including prosecutors and attorneys present in the courtroom. His courtroom demeanor was again very professional and noticeably gained the respect of all of his peers. His support staff was very informative and did exactly what they said they would do on all accounts. This is a very impressive attorney and I can say that having worked with over two hundred attorneys in a variety of capacities.

A great attorney and great person
I highly recommend anybody reading this review to hire Mr. Tuorto. Anthony is the best attorney i've had and I am extremely lucky to have hired him. I'd like to start by saying that he worked really hard on my case and was able to have my charges dismissed. Mr. Tuorto is extremely knowledgeable and very proffessional. Also I would like to say that he genuinely cared about me and my case and was always really nice and polite with me even if at one point i was hard to work with. All of these qualities together he makes for a top notch attorney and one great person. I want to thank him again, he has improved the quality of my life with his hard work and I will always be grateful.

Looking for courtesy and professionalism in a lawyer?
Anthony Tuorto is an outstanding lawyer in Asheville. I was new to the area and had a little mishap with the law. Anthony took and looked over my case from start to finish. The professional legal advice he was able to give me was superior. My case was dismissed and will also be removed from my record. His trustworthy, straight forward approach, and gentle demeanor, is why I chose Anthony to represent me. He did a great JOB!

DUI dismissed
His knowledge of the law is insurmountable he can dissect a case upfront and give you honest advice on the expected outcome. He is very quick to respond during the process.

Anthony Tuorto
I have nothing but positive things to say about Mr. Tuorto. He was extremely professional as to how he carried himself, and how he operated. I was always informed immediately about things happening in my case, and am 100% percent satisfied with the outcome. Hopefully I will not need another lawyer but if I do Mr. Tuorto will be the first person I call.

A Life Changing Experience
August 2013 I arrived at Minick Law Firm scared to death. Anthony was the attorney recommended to take my felony case. His professional and concern let me know immediately I had the right attorney. Anthony worked my case for 9 months and in May all charges were dropped. I will always be thankful that I chose this law firm.
