Prior to joining The DeLorenzo Law Firm, LLP, Mr. Dalmata was an attorney with Boies, Schiller & Flexner and his practice focused on complex commercial litigation and antitrust violations.  Mr. Dalmata also was a judicial intern for the Honorable Richard T. Aulisi, New York State Supreme Court.

Thank You for Our Son's Justice
We had a difficult and unique case (loss of sepulcher), and are so thankful that Cory took us on as clients, to help get justice for our son. He provided support and guidance on the case by getting us through tough decisions in order to ensure the best possible outcome. The case took a while to resolve, but he was there with us every step of the way, until completion. He was honest and informative, and went above and beyond in his preparation for the case. We now have the peace of mind that with Cory’s help we have done everything possible to honor our son’s memory.

Prepares well, argues well. Will use him for all my legal matters.
Even though Cory Dalmata and the DeLorenzo Law Firm specialize in personal injury cases, they handled a protracted child support/tuition payment issue for me. Opposing counsel would not contemplate reasonable negotiations and in court tried several methods to introduce extraneous information, get the judge to change rulings he made during proceedings and do end-runs around the judge's rulings by introducing supposedly "new" evidence. Cory was outstanding in his focus, knowledge of the law and applicable precedents. He was resolute in his negotiations with counsel and in command of his arguments before the court. I also felt that their fees where very reasonable and that the work Cory did was productive, worthwhile and always value added. I have since returned to the DeLorenzo Law Firm for other personal legal matters including contracts, new home construction and certainly will use them to start an LLCj later this year. I recommend Cory Dalmata and the entire DeLorenzo Law Firm without hesitation.

Cory handled my divorce and another very serious legal matter for me simulatneously. Through the entire process, he provided superb guidance and assurance while keeping me informed. Tough when he has to be and with a common sense manner, he and the DeLorenzo Law Firm are outstanding.

My first call for any legal issue
Cory has helped me with a traffic issue and a licensing issue. In both instances my concerns were handled in a timely and professional matter, with both results in my favor. I would highly recommend Cory and the DeLorenzo Firm for any legal matter requiring knowledgeable counsel.

Cory Dalmata is very professional and timely. The Fire District was in negotiations with a local and a major corporation, and Cory handled all the legal work for us. Everything was handled with the best interest of the District and we were extremely comfortable and pleased with his guidance and performance.
