About me

I  am  an attorney with approximately 25 years experience whose practice  emphasises personal injury actions, for example, auto accidents, wrongful death claims, insurance disputes, negliigence by municliple agencies (sports arenas, etc.) and governmental authorities such as police and sheriff's' departments.  This is not an exhaustive list of my practice areas; for examples I have handled cases against multi-billion dollar international corporations, and successfully prosecuted sink hole claims against one of the country's  largest insurers. During the course of my career, I have litigated and/or tried numerous and varied cases to successful outcomes. I have personally prosecuted appeals when the facts and/or lower court ruling require such action: My appeals have resulted in reported cases contained in compilations of District Court opinions. Please feel free to forward specifics about your case for my personal review, they may satisfy the requirements for a legal suit which falls within my area of experience-- you won't know unless you ask.  I will promply respond to your inquiry.

    I endorse this lawyer. We worked together on a medical malpractice case which was quite traumatic for the plaintiff and he took great care to get her the best recovery possible, which was quite substantial in a defendant-friendly county. Mr. Saffioti has a pure passion for the law and the provides, from what I have experienced, the truest definition of "zealous representation."

  • John David Robinson

    I endorse this lawyer as being a very capable veteran of complex litigation. As opposing counsel, I have seen his first hand representation of his client for several years. This includes all steps of the litigation process from the presuit preparation thru legal pleadings, discovery, depositions, court hearings and mediation leading up to trial. I have no reservations in recommending him as effective counsel for his clients.
