Let’s Work Together

Best attorney in Oswego County! Mr. Lanza will go well above and beyond what he should have to for his clients good, bad or indifferent. Many people immediately pass judgement on a person because of something that person HAD TO DO by Law without knowing the entire story. Please don’t pass judgement on something or someone until you know the WHOLE truth. Stand up for what you believe in even if you stand alone! Thank you @Sallanza for the amazing work you do. I am sure you are never told enough how much you are appreciated!

Very supportive and fought hard for my family during a difficult period. Easily reached when most attorneys are not. Mr. Lanza was upfront from the first meeting and followed through with everything he said he was going to.
