“My wife and I, have worked with Vito for more than 15 years in estate planning, trusts and related legal services. During this time he has provided excellent advice. He has shown great concern for our needs and desires in establishing the estate plan that completely reflects our desires. He has continued to help us update this plan according to changes that have taken place in our lives. During a nasty dispute dealing with my father-in-law’s estate, done by another attorney, Vito provided my wife with both legal council and emotional support. He worked out a settlement in favor of my wife. We can heartily endorse him and trust our estate to his guidance.”
