About Gaetano

Learn Gaetano’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    Our firm has over 60 years combined experience working with clients who have suffered a physical or emotional injury. We handle vehicle accidents, construction injuries, defective product, medical, dental or podiatric malpractice, slip and fall, dog bite & other injury cases. We gather evidence, calculate and present claims for damages. We also defend clients who are accused of causing personal injury, and help navigate the insurance claim & no-fault process.

  2. Divorce and separation

  3. Appeals

  4. Medical malpractice
    I know of no other firm located in Richmond County that handles Medical, Dental and Podiatric malpractice claims. Like with all of our other cases, we take the time to personally serve your needs. If you believe you or someone you know was injured or died as a result of malpractice, call us for a free consultation.

  5. Social Security & Disability

I left my law enforcement career as a SWAT team sergeant after nearly 12 years with the NYPD and Boca Raton, FL police department to attend law school.  Like law enforcement, I saw law practice as a way to stand up for the rights of people who didn't have either the knowledge, skill or ability to stand up for themselves.  


In private practice, I can do just that.  I can help clients navigate difficult situations involving personal injury, contract disputes, property disputes, surrogate court or other litigation matters. Moreover, our firm's litigation experience has provided us with the knowledge to anticipate potential areas of conflict and make us better able to help you prepare legal documents such wills, living wills, trusts, those documents needed to start a business, transfer real estate, and just about any other matter from which a dispute may arise.  The firm has over 40 years of combined experience in these and other areas, and we have licensed attorneys in New York, New Jersey, Washington, DC, and Maryland. 


I look forward to being able to help some of my law enforcement brethren with their legal issues, and, just as I did as a law enforcement officer, help anyone else who needs or thinks they need legal assistance.  


Feel free to contact me with your questions at and ask for Guy.  If I can't help you, I can help you find someone who can!

"Although I am an attorney with many years experience, I turned to Avvo for help with a procedural question. I got several responses, but Gaetano's was far and away the best. He was also extremely responsive, courteous and helpful when I emailed with a follow-up question. Curious about him, I took a look at some of his answers to other people's questions and I was very impressed. The advice he gives appears to be clear, straight-forward, concise and smart! I would not hesitate to recommend this attorney, and I will undoubtedly call on him again myself when I have questions within his expertise."
