Over 90% of our full-time practice is devoted to providing bankruptcy assisting to individuals or small businesses.
This firm consists of the owner, Attorney John D'Amato, and one 3 assistants. We belive that providing our clients with close and continuing access to the firm's attorney while limiting the number of assistants that work on the case (generally only one assistant will help Attorney D'Amato with the case)will provide the best results for the client in all cases.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?
We are a small office which can give personal attention to your bankruptcy needs. We care about our work product and belive that, in many instances, a client will be better served by receiving the personal attention of the law firm owner, rather than an associate attorney of the firm.
