    Joe was an incredible help when I needed it the most. He guided me through the entire process, answered all my millions of questions, kept me calm when I needed it, and was overall very patient and understanding. When you find yourself in a less-than-ideal situation that's scary and traumatizing, it's important to have someone by your side that will not just guide you, but offer you comfort as well. Joe and Aimee did just that. Thanks so much for all your help! Read less

    Attorney Paletta helped me tremendously during one of the most difficult times in my life. He and his staff helped me to understand each step of the court process and relieved me of a lot of stress that comes with any court proceeding. His paralegal, Aimee, was great to work with, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful with any questions I had between hearings. Before each important event, I was given all the details I needed so that I was as prepared as I could be. I am very pleased I chose them. Read less

    Mr. Paletta was referred to us when our son (age 21) was arrested for drug possession in Pennsylvania while we live in NY. He and his staff were responsive and very helpful. He successfully negotiated an outcome that held our son accountable in a constructive not destructive manner. On a personal note, Mr. Paletta and staff were supportive and sympathetic to frantic parents who had never dealt with a family member significantly in trouble before. Read less

    I hired Mr. Paletta to represent a very close friend of mine who was extradited to PA. Mr. Paletta was very aggressive and communicated at the very beginning how he would handle the case, as well as the anticipated outcome and got the charges reduced and my friend out of jail just as he said he would. His paralegal, Aimee Toth, was very friendly, professional and quickly responded to my numerous questions, phone calls and emails. I would definitely recommend Mr. Paletta to others. Read less
