My case was very complicated. I had consulted with two other attorneys who passed on my case. The second referred me to Don Calaiaro. Don agreed to meet with me for an hour which stretched into almost three hours. I went into that meeting with the weight of the world on my shoulders, I left with hope. His professional manner and obvious knowledge cut through the complicated process. Before I had left his office he had given me directions and contacts to start the process, and he filed the first of many motions. Throughout this entire process which is still ongoing, he has been able to answer my questions, and give me reassurance. His staff has been professional and extremely helpful. A lot of attorneys advertise and "talk the talk". Don walks it! He is an honest man in a profession that is confusing to those of us outside it.

From the initial phone call to discuss our situation Don focused on the facts of our chapter 11 case and guided us through a specific plan. His extensive background and knowledge of the Chapter 11 process immediately eased our overwhelming situation. Not only does Don bring experience he is helping us gain control, achieve our goals and live our life to the fullest. We highly recommend him.

We highly recommend Donald Calaiaro. He has the experience and knowledge in bankruptcy law for positive resolution in the most difficult cases. After almost two decades in business, we were faced with tough decisions when we sought Don's legal consul. He exceeded our legal needs including challenges with federal audits. Don was the segue to a new beginning. We appreciated his guidance in such difficult times.

Don has an encyclopedic knowledge of bankruptcy law, but he is no ivory tower academic. He understands the practicalities and nuances of business. There is no lawyer more tenacious than Don in a legal battle. I recommend him to anyone contemplating filing bankruptcy without reservation.
