The task of choosing a attorney to represent you and your legal matters is a stressful endeavor. When great results are achieved from a professional attorney who is also a humble one, it is only proper to share that experience so That Others May find great results. Mr Gerald Salerno lawyer tourney at law hit a homerun for me and I'm elated. If and when the need arises for professionalism I will definitely be calling him.
Gerry is the shining example of a 'best of class' professional, deeply experienced, caring and knowledgeable attorney. For the first time in twelve years we had a predatory client who demanded ten times the value of the software we developed for him. He was harassing us and threatening with a big lawsuit, so we made a frantic call to Gerry and he immediately put us to ease with his deep knowledge of our options.
Mr. Salerno is the best lawyer I know. When I first started with my divorce I represented myself, then tried Legal Aid which did not go so well. Years started going by and nothing was being done. I was stuck representing myself again and then I was introduced to Mr. Salerno. All my stress went away from Day 1. Everything went so smoothly. My ex-husband’s lawyer asked for a deposition and my stress and anxiety went so high I was on the verge of a breakdown. Mr. Salerno was so confident that ever would be ok and it was! At last I was divorced and I received everything I asked for during mediation. Please consider hiring Mr. Salerno, you will not regret it!
Mr. Salerno answered his phone early on a Sunday morning and agreed to meet later that day. I was pleasantly surprised and grateful. He listened, gave advice and decided to take on my complicated case. In fact, it ended up being three separate cases and he did not hesitate at all. His rate was extremely fair. All three cases are still open, but he is working on all of them simultaneously and diligently. He always answers all my questions without fail and keeps me informed and updated. He is a lawyer that really cares about his clients. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney. Thank you so much for everything!
5 STARS!!! I approached Attny Salerno with a high conflict alimony case, and he not only graciously walked me through the process, he answered all my questions/texts very quickly and even offered encouragement along the way. This guy is the real deal... I've honestly never interacted with such an empathic and down to earth attorney before... My only regret that I didn't find him sooner...
Mr. Salerno was a God-send for my case! He was thorough and articulate in gathering information and representing the best interests of me and my children in a very touchy divorce/custody case. I was witness to his high level of integrity and tenacity during my trial. I highly recommend Mr Salerno . I am very happy with the outcome of my case.
