Excellent lawyer
No-nonsense, straight to the point and very professional… these are the words I would use to describe Vince Citro, Mark Horwitz and their entire legal team. From my first consultation to the end of my case, I was always well informed and thoroughly explained every step of my federal case and the charges I was facing which can be very complicated not to mention overwhelming. I was in good hands, despite the fear and the stress I felt very confident having Horwitz and Citro by my side. I could not be happier with the outcome of my case. Vince Citro is extremely efficient and professional with a lot of experience in the federal system. He was responsive to my phone calls and emails and always available to answer questions.
