I am a mediator and I have mediated several high damage and complicated medical malpractice cases for Ben. I have always found Ben to have to a firm grasp of all issues, he is always prepared, he has the utmost respect among his adversaries and he is a consummate professional. I would recommend the highest rating possible for him.

Ben represents his clients at the highest level of competency and demonstrates strong ethical attributes while doing so. I have been impressed with the results that he has obtained where he has persevered on behalf of his clients in situations where others would have accepted lesser results. I have personally spoken with a number of individuals that Ben has represented and they all have excellent things to say about him as well.

I have worked with Ben Salango for over 15 years now, both with him as counsel for a co-defendant, sometimes when our interests were aligned and sometimes when our clients were adversarial to one another. I have also defended cases where he served as counsel for the plaintiff. He is always extremely ethical, even when others have engaged in unprofessional and hostile behavior against him. His legal knowledge and analytical abilities are superior. He is a true asset to our profession.

Mr. Salango is one of the most competent and highly ethical attorneys I have had the opportunity to work with. He is also a highly skilled trial attorney. I would retain him to represent me and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends and family, especially for the most serious of injury cases.

Ben does a very good job of ethically and aggressively representing his clients. I have represented co-defendants along with Ben, and I have represented defendants in cases he has filed on behalf of plaintiffs, and in both situations, I have nothing but respect for the way he represents his clients.
