I enjoy the interaction with my clients, helping them to achieve the best result for their circumstances.  My practice has grown over three decades because of them: their confidence and their loyalty.

What distinguishes our law firm is the high degree of success achieved at the trial level, the appellate level, and the business level.  Whether winning a multimillion dollar trial or appeal, or representng the business client in a transaction, the combination of determination, preparedness, experience and honesty has resulted in our achieving Martindale-Hubbell's highest AV rating for over 25 consecutive years.

I am both a litigator and a business lawyer, which gives me a perspective on a variety of legal matters which my clients respect and appreciate.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.

Proving That Justice Is Number One Priority
Very knowledgeable, considerate, and compassionate One being a character not always found in every attorney. When an attorney states not interested because a significant monetary gain is not involved, one is then forced to ask - why is that more of a priority than supporting and protecting the Rights of those who come to you for help - - like the oath doctors take, Do no harm. When consideration and compassion are removed from any matter/situation what really exists? Thank You to each and every attorney who responded to my question and a very special Thanks to Attorney Damadeo because you restored my belief that not everyone values monetary gains instead of Justice being the Priority so that it always Prevails.

Personal Attorney Review
Nick drafted and completed our wills and a number of other personal documents. He was extremely helpful in explaining every document and what it meant before we signed them. He's great to work with.

Excellent Results - Thank You!
From the first meeting, Mr. Damadeo did an excellent job of spelling out to me exactly the nature of my situation. He told me what he could do for me and he actually did what he said he was going to do very quickly and efficiently. Whenever I had a question he was always very good at getting back to me in a short period of time with an answer. The result of his work on my case is absolutely phenomenal... I could have never predicted such a successful outcome. I recommend Mr. Damadeo with the highest degree of confidence!
