"Diplomacy is often key, but not at the expense of advocacy - I've thrown many lefts and rights both in the courtroom and in life, and ultimately, the combination that gets my clients results is my tenacity and the fact that I care!"

Nothing is more important to Joseph D. Lento than family, and he advocates for his clients not only with this philosophy in mind, but also in his heart.

"Only the strong survive, and when you or your family is faced with a challenge in life, ask yourself, 'Who will be fighting for you? An attorney who has fought and won hard rounds? An attorney who, no matter how hard the fight, has the heart to answer the bell?' Success is often hard-fought – I wouldn't expect it to be any other way. I drive hard, I go the distance, and the results I get for my clients speak for themselves!"
