    Mr. Riotto offered prompt, professional services. I never met Mr. Riotto face-to-face but I can assure the reader of a professional which met all our expectations of competence, affability and courtesy. All matters were addressed to our expectation. And his career as a former trooper gave me a sense of confidence dealing with our motor vehicle accident and related issues.
