Damian Albergo is a life-long resident of Bergen County.  On July 16, 2018, Damian started Albergo Law Group, LLC, a boutique litigation firm.  For 18 years, Damian practiced as an associate and then partner at Cole Schotz P.C., one of New Jersey’s largest and preeminent law firms. Having handled complex and high-profile business litigation matters throughout his career, Damian launched the Albergo Law Group in Hackensack, New Jersey to serve the New York City Metropolitan area. To provide an array of services for his clients, Damian has associated himself with skilled practitioners in other practice areas, such a personal injury law, bankruptcy and real estate. At Albergo Law Group, LLC clients receive big-firm expertise at small firm prices that can be structured based on the size of the case. And unlike many lawyers who don’t promptly return their client’s calls or emails, Damian believes excellent client communication is the bedrock of a great attorney-client relationship. No client is too small and every client has a direct line to Damian on his personal cell phone or through email, which he checks daily.

We understand that lawsuits can seem scary and expensive. At Albergo Law Group, we believe that clients who are involved in their cases at every step have more trust in their lawyers and the system compared with clients who never hear from their lawyers. For this reason, we consult our clients regularly and provide them with the best facts and recommendations to make smart and careful decisions. No lawyer can guarantee success, but we guarantee you will always be listened to and know what we are doing to achieve your objectives.

Definitely a go-getter
I worked for Damian for 10 years and he always exhibited professionalism. He has a knack of cutting to the chase and gets the work done with confidence and ease. He truly is an amazing smart attorney. I not only worked with him but he has helped me with personal matters which was favorably in the end. If you need an attorney, Damian is your guy.

Highly Qualified & Experienced Litagator
If you have a need for a litigation attorney, Mr. Albergo is one of the most highly qualified and experienced litigators in the NJ/NJ area. We have had the opportunity to work with Mr. Albergo on multiple occasions and he has demonstrated incredible skill and competence in every matter. He lays out realistic goals and expectations, keeps his clients up the date as things transpire and is very diligent about follow up. I would strongly recommend Mr. Albergo to anyone in need of a litigation attorney.

I am in a complicated litigation mess with an ex- business partner. I have retained, since the beginning of 2018, several different attorneys throughout this BATTLE with no success and constantly have been on defense. A dear friend referred me to Damian just recently. Damian has been a game changer and put me on offense for the first time in a very short period of time. His knowledge of the law, attention to detail, sharpness, and fighting attitude for his clients is just what one needs in these complicated matters. Peace of mind is priceless; Damian gives me just that.

Superb lawyer
Damian represented me in a contentious litigation that ended in a successful buyout of my former business partner. I have hired many attorneys over the years and Damian was the best by far. Damian is not only an aggressive litigator in court, but behind the scenes he provides calm and rational legal advice designed to accomplish the client’s goal for the least amount of money. Unlike many other lawyers, Damian is easily accessible by phone or email and clients always get his personal cell phone number. I highly recommend hiring Damian.

Damian represented me in a complex shareholder dispute. He rolled his sleeves up and dug right into the issues at hand and crafted a strategy that achieved an excellent and definitive resolution. He was always miles ahead in strategy and expertise . He most definitely understood the issues at play and was doggedly determined to produce victory. This is definitely his game.

I have used Damian several times. He is a workhorse and gets the job done. His knowledge and experience is obvious once you see him in action.

Damian was knowledgeable, precise, fair, and extremely responsive in his defense of a lawsuit brought by a large medical facility regarding a large sum of money they believed was owed to them but had been deemed satisfied by our insurance carrier. With his extensive knowledge, determination, and a well crafted letter citing specific areas of the law, the lawsuit was promptly dropped. I would highly recommend Damian to anyone seeking representation in his area of expertise.
