Why Sal?

Pawcatuck native and longstanding community attorney, Salvatore (Sal) Ritacco, has announced his intent to serve as probate judge for the Southeastern Connecticut Regional Probate Court District 30.

This year, Attorney Ritacco is celebrating ten years in practice. The Law Office of Salvatore Ritacco, LLC recently relocated his office location to 149 Liberty Street in Pawcatuck, CT.

Sal’s decision to run developed from the counsel and encouragement from the late Honorable Paul Cravinho. “Paul felt I had the right temperament for the job and he told me so,” Sal explains. “He wanted me to run to help the people in southeastern Connecticut like he did, and I hope to continue his legacy in probate.”

One specific concern Sal hopes to address if elected will be to find ways to better protect the elderly and their families by having a forum for local attorneys and the court to discuss navigating the probate court process. “The probate process involves serious issues that require full-time attention—whether in cases of adoption, conservatorship, guardianship, or probating an estate. I want the community to know that I am committed to giving each individual full-time attention they deserve. It is my goal to be your friend in Probate."
