Robert Previto

Attorney at Law

When your rights are on the line, experience counts. So do integrity, intelligence and determination.
Lawyers are too expensive, and legal proceedings too risky, to wonder whether your lawyer knows his way around the courtroom — or lacks the chops to go toe-to-toe with your opponent.

Educational Background

My Philosophy

“My philosophy is simple: ‘Suit the word to the action, and the action to the word.’  People come to lawyers for one reason only: to solve a legal problem. While it’s not always possible to forge a perfect solution, it is always possible to provide effective representation that achieves the best outcome possible under the given circumstances.” — Robert Previto, Esq.

“The key is understanding your clients, their wants, their needs; knowing the law and the facts and applying them to the best advantage. While we are accustomed to television shows where legal matters are wrapped-up in an hour, the reality is far more grueling.

My job is to guide my clients through the process with confidence and compassion, and give them the information, support, and representation they need to triumph over their own particular challenge.” — Robert Previto, Esq.
