Sandy a Very pleased client
I recently had an unfortunate incident at a medical facility and retained Santo Riccobono and his firm to represent me. Santo is not only a compassionate person but is one of the most honest hardworking attorney's I know. His knowledge of law and his professionalism is outstanding, He really fought for me and made sure I was compensated very well for my injury. Most importantly since I myself have a very busy schedule, Santo always kept me informed and whenever I called him and if he wasn't available at that moment he made sure to always returned my call within a couple hours. I will recommend him to my family and friends, as I know they will be in good hands. Thank you again Santo for everything.
