Working as a lawyer for 10 years has given me the ability to recognize a skilled attorney when I see one. My experience as Solimano Law's client was undeniably rewarding. Diego and Zoe clearly understood my concerns and objectives, and advocated on that basis. Intelligence, transparency and greatness, that's what you want when you need a lawyer to defend your rights. Highly recommended!

I don't often give 5 star reviews, possibly because I am far to detail oriented, however if there is a Law group in this city that deserves 5 stars it is Diego and his firm. Throughout the entire process he did not waver. His experience, professionalism and integrity are what really stood out and I confidently recommend that you want Diego standing next to you at the end of your trial.

They made me feel extremely comfortable, and took the time to explain all the necessary points to me so that I understood them. It turned a really horrible situation into one that had me overwhelmed with happiness!

Thank you again guys!
