Thorough, Knowledgeable And Great Legal Advice
I consulted Mr. Dalimonte in regards to a potential lawsuit involving a former employer. Mr. Dalimonte listened to me and was very prompt and thorough in his research. He explained the law to me in detail, reviewed my options, and gave me the peace of mind I needed. I highly recommend Mr. Dalimonte in any legal matter.

Best Attorney in the Nation!!!
To say that John Dalimonte saved my life is an understatement. I thought that I was completely screwed -- but somehow I was lucky enough to get referred to John. Other lawyers go to John for advice -- why wouldn't you want that lawyer to represent you?? He got me a huge settlement that saved me and my family. To top it off, he's a great guy -- and I never thought I'd say that about a lawyer!
