Meet Attorney August N. Santore, Jr.

I have been practicing law for over 20 years. I am a former muncipal prosecutor, current private practitioner and court appointed attorney for indigent defendants. I have handled over 6000 cases in municipal court as a public and private attorney. I am very diligent, straight forward and have an excellent reputation in the practice of law. My clients refer me constantly and I earn those referrals by working very hard for each and every client to secure the best possible results in every case.

I was raised in a family business which instilled hard working self-employment values. I have many different skills that have been honed since I was a teenager working with my family on large projects all over the world. I have built homes, run my own companies successfully and handle a spectrum of issues with great competence.

Most importantly, I know how to interact and relate well with all people. Cases are about people and facts. They are stories. I listen to the facts, tell you my brutally honest assessment and go to work to get my clients the best results based on the circumstances. I am persistent.

I have added to my team and my other attorney Thomas J. Dooley, Esq. is a former State Police Expert in Forensic Chemistry. He knows the science and is on your team when you hire our firm. I have significant experience in DUI defense, traffic matters, criminal defense, real estate, business formation, business sales and acquisition, zoning issues, wills and litigation.
