Integrity + Service ×Caring = A Successful Journey
Those are words that unfortunately are not necessarily equated with Attorneys and Law Firms. Billable Hours +Twisted Concepts = Success is how people view the legal arena..but not here. These are people helping people in a humane way without the arrogance and unapproachable flare that some law firms pride themselves with. Things are explained in simple terms so that the client can make an informed decision. Mr. Lucchese and his staff never made me feel like I called too much or asked too many questions. And they won't take a case if it is not their expertise. There's another quality. ....honesty. You can't go wrong with people you can trust.

Caring and Knowledgeable
Lucchese & D'Ammora, LLP, was referred to us by a firm in C.T. during the very traumatic and confusing time after the multiple-car accident in which we were involved. Bob came to our home and explained the process - something neither of us was familiar with. Throughout our case, he kept us up-to-date and guided us without fail. Bob is not only very familiar with the legalities of a case such as ours, but he also took the lead when multiple parties were involved. Based on our experience, we can say with certainty that Bob truly cares for his clients. We unequivocally recommend Mr. Lucchese.

AWESOME Lawyer that will Fight for what's RIGHT!
Bob is what I call a "Blue Collar Lawyer" the reason why I say Blue Collar is because he speaks to people on their level and doesn’t confuse you with legal mumbo-jumbo!!! Bob is extremely knowledgeable and gave me Perfect advice on my back injury… it was like he knew more than my own Doctor! I would recommend Bob to all my friends who need someone who will Fight for the Best Outcome in any Legal situation. If you’re looking for someone to get you the Best Outcome, then Bob is your Guy!

Proper title!
I met Mr. Lucchese for the first time back in 1990. His then firm was referred to me by another firm. He ask so many questions like a machinegun! sharp to the point. No fluff. Firm but polite! I knew that I was in the right hands. Yes, thank God and Robert we won my case. In the years to follow, if I ever had a legal question and or some sort of case he was right there. I'm proud to call him my friend.
