  • John William Nelson

    Mr. Salata is a fantastic criminal lawyer. He knows his stuff inside and out. He is one of the folks I send referrals to and I would recommend him in a heartbeat. He is also a wonderful member of the legal community, and a testament to the professionalism of the bar. When I had a criminal case I took and had questions about procedure, tactics, and what to expect, Mr. Salata took the time out of his busy day to speak with me and mentor me. Multiple times. He is not just a great lawyer for his clients, but he is a great colleague to his fellow lawyers.
