A Different Kind of Law Firm

Tardiff & Saldo has built a firm that embraces multi-disciplinary excellence. Our lawyers and associates are proficient at both transactional law & litigation, which is what matters when you’re choosing who to rely on for counsel. There aren’t a lot of shops who can claim this, but we’ve mastered it.

In most cases, a lawyer who doesn’t like the confrontation of the courtroom will go into transactional law. Similarly, lawyers who excel in the courtroom don’t do transactional law because “that’s not where the money is.” We believe that to be the best at one, you have to be really good and well-practiced at the other.

So at Tardiff & Saldo Law that is what we look for in our partners and associates. Our ability to think “outside of the box” drives all of our major decisions, benefitting our clients, and allowing them to get back to more important things…their family, their business, their life.
