5-star service
I had a one-on-one consultation with this lawyer recently. My experience has been a lot more than expected. What I like are the following. 1. Making an appointment is straightforward. They promised to call back and they did at the exact time. 2. Michael is very friendly and patient. I appreciate that so much because I can talk much more openly with him like I would with my friends. He is a good listener and very respectful. 3. The fee is pretty reasonable. I feel like I owe his office more than what I paid for for the amount of time that they spent on my case. I had a great experience with this lawyer and I appreciate the service this office provided.

Great experience
Mr. Salorio and his staff were great. Any doubt we had we could bring it to them and they were always answered. They definitely made a difficult and nerve racking situation easier. Mr. Salorio deserves my highest recommendation.

Thank you for allowing us to serve you. I'm happy to hear that you were satisfied with the customer service provided by my staff and I, and that we were able to help calm your nerves. Filing for bankruptcy is often very stressful for our clients, and we do our best to put our clients at ease. As I tell my clients, you're retaining me to stress out and worry for you. :)

The only Attorney to step up and answer my question
He was willing to offer his advise., After I shared my information he was quick to diminish my stress & confusion and inform me my case in fact had already been dismissed.

Takes care of client
Attorney Salorio was recommended by another attorney to handle Chapter 13 cases. He provided counsel and worked hard to complete case. More importantly, he took time to listen to concerns and answer questions.
Response from Michael Salorio March 20, 2019
I'm very pleased to hear that you were happy with the outcome of you case. Ch. 13 bankruptcies are tough cases to see through to completion, and they're very stressful on our clients. I do my best to minimize the stress load on my clients by making myself available to answer any questions and concerns. Thank you for the review.

answer to a prayer
I was worried about getting a competent lawyer who understood immigration law because I am very aware of shaddy and over priced do nothing folks who are wolves in this field, but Michael who I know personally was a gem he is very capable and very competent and walked us through all the requirements and was able to speak clearly about what was needed and what was expected of us to get our family member legally immigrated. I believe Michael is the best and I have all the respect for his work.

Bankruptcy
I was referred to Michael Salorio by an attorney named Edgard. The moment I sat down with Mr. Salorio I felt really confortable in explaining my situation with my debt. He clearly explained in detail how he would be able to help me in resolving my bankruptcy. He made sure I qualified and gave me the appropriate paper work to work with. He worked really fast my process and was able to complete my bankruptcy in a timely manner.
