Above and beyond.
Mr. Stango is representing my son in a rather complicated case . He has gone the "extra Mile" so far and very impressive is a possible positive outcome based on the "spirit of the law rather than the letter of the law" . Mr. Stango was always available , even after hours , offered suggestions and above all, he would listen; simply said, he made this case "his own". He took a great deal of stress out of the whole situation. Yes, he is an attorney I TRUST ! Should I need representation in the future, Mr. Stango would be the one I would call.

I am overwhelmed thinking my young daughter will be doing jail time. We trust the legal advice Mr. Stango gave us. My daughter and I are very confident in his representation of our case. I am sure going to court will give her the future she deserves. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Professional and caring
Hands down one of the best lawyers I've had. He was court appointed and was still very professional. He genuinely cared for my case and made sure I was helped. I got my case dropped after a court ordered class. Outstanding lawyer, recommend 10/10
