IT IS IMPORTANT TO BOND WITH YOUR FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY.

I  just want to be known as a straight shooter. Most of these cases settle down and finish, from point "A" to point "B", this is a process. During the process you need someone who believes in honesty, has integrity, and can be ruthless in moderation. Sometimes that is what it takes. You can benefit from a unique semi boutique experience. Rosemarie is well practiced and capable.  We each know the others cases and you benefit from two different perspectives. The goal is to educate our clients on the law and the legal process, in order for them to assist in the case and make informed decisions. Get it done. We have broad experience in high conflict, high asset and income cases with foreign and domestic business valuations. We also represent the less complex cases our fellow citezens. We can handle our own appeals for our clients, with many favorable reported decisions.

 

I am a dedicated father, parent of three, and husband to my partner. I coach for the kids and raise money for Autism Awareness. One of my twins, was diagnosed very young, now he is a miracle of early intervention, fully integrated and on honor roll. No stranger to hardship.

 

We can encourage you through this process and show you the way, but you have to take the walk. The impact of a divorce, and sense of loss can provoke every emotion. Individual counseling for you is always helpful but not required. We are here to keep your eye on the ball and push this to a conclusion.

Fully Vested
Jeff, Was a complete attorney. From the in and outs, to court preparation, to speaking with me daily, to guiding me to good decisions, to handling every step of the entire process, and being tactfully aggressive, Jeff was brilliant!!!!

Simply The Best in the Business!
I was referred to Jeff by a female friend for whom Jeff had secured custody against a hostile ex husband. She raved about his work ethic, his communications to her and his superior court room results. I retained Jeff, unaware that my ex would drag out a four year divorce while hiring, and methodically firing, 4 attorneys. Throughout the divorce "train wreck", Jeff remained patient, strong and focused. Somehow, he also managed and counseled me through the 4 year tribulation. The divorce ended in a very acceptable settlement along with custody. He is a dominant strategist and, when necessary, his courtroom performance is second to NONE!

Prevailed every time!
Jeffrey worked on my child support case over a four year period, and as each appeal and new motion was filed by my ex, he methodically shut him down. Countless hearings where Jeffrey worked hard to win each time. I truly appreciate his dedication to my case, and the confidence I had in him to prevail made a difficult time more bearable.

Exceeds expectations.
Sometimes expectations are exceeded. This is one of those times. My words came easily as my preparation was to think about Jeff and how he impacted me. Chances are many of us like the feeling of being “in control” of our lives. Hiring a lawyer is a clear signal that we find ourselves no longer able to control the outcome as we may desire. We need HELP. Do we still want to be in control? Of course. Meeting Jeff D’Amore was most fortunate and beneficial for me. Jeff has a unique ability to communicate that you are still in control. This is your case. Jeff is here to guide and counsel you! This was my life but I needed the legal guide. He made that clear. He did that by listening more than talking. He asked intelligent questions. This made it clear he HAD listened. He gave me a broad picture of what we would face. We spoke of his experience which gave me confidence I would be well represented. We did not waste time. We went to work addressing the facts in law that would result in more equity and less exposure for me. It was a strong feeling that soon we would resolve what I was unable to resolve on my own. The issues were complex, the dollars in play significant by most measures. It was not in any way easy or uncomplicated. We consulted several experts. Through it all, never did he cause me to be ashamed or embarrassed for the mistakes I had made before this all started. We focused on what we were DOING to resolve the issues. If you have already decided on an attorney, they are like doctors; it’s smart to get a second opinion. You may choose Jeff and have a superior experience.

Compassionate yet strong lawyer
Jeff handled my divorce after my 25 year marriage ended. He was communicative and helped me get everything I was entitled to. If you are looking for someone that has your best interest, knows the law, and can get the job done, then Jeff is your lawyer!

Eliminating alimony stress
Jeff was great. Kept me informed and let me know what all the options were for modification of alimony. He was upfront every step of the process. I would highly recommend Jeff to my friends.

Excellent work
I should have consulted and hired Jeffrey immediately when my wife contacted her lawyer. He pointed out some key considerations from prior cases that would have completely altered my approach and would have prevented some painful problems in what is a heart wrenching situation.

Review for Jeffrey D’Amore
Jeffrey is a fabulously and professional divorce attorney who got the job done. He guided me through the whole process and he followed up on letters, emails and phone calls almost immediately. Jeffrey worked hard for my divorce and so did Charlene, I would highly recommend Jeffrey too anyone going through a divorce.

Positive, Professional and Effective
I met with Jeffrey D'Amore to handle my divorce case and from our first conversation he was positive, professional and proved to be effective. I appreciated his frank, realistic advise and the help of Charlene Griffith paralegal to prepare my case. Jeffrey communicated and worked confidently delivering an excellent outcome.

Professionalism, Integrity and a real desire to get your Divorce finalized
Working with Jeff has made a difficult situation (divorce) into one that is much less stressful. Finding the right divorce attorney who has YOUR best interests in mind is difficult. I was lucky enough to be introduced to Jeff from my business attorney, who I trust implicitly. Jeff was able to get my divorce negotiated and finalized in just a few months. This was not an easy task! His konwledge of both the law and the Palm Beach County system is second to none. I don't think you will find another group that knows how to navigate the local legal landscape that you can trust like Jeff D'Amore. I highly recommend.

Child Custody Settlement
Mr. D’Amore and Charlene were very professional and to the point. After two previous attorneys that worked to string things out and run up the bill with no favorable outcomes, Mr. D’Amore was quick in strategy and results. I wish I had been fortunate enough to have had him as my attorney during my divorce. It would have save 5 years of unnecessary stress and cost. I now have custody of my kids and all in the world is right.

Unwavering discipline
Going through divorce is difficult. Going through a highly contentious divorce can be a nightmare! This was my reality. Jeffrey D’Amore and his highly experienced legal team went above and beyond the call of duty to fight for my best possible outcome, and in the end, that is exactly what I got! Jeffrey faced 4 different opposing counsels, multiple mediations, long discovery sessions, several hearings, and a full day in trial on my case. Opposition was tough, and there was no reasonable settlement in sight outside of the court room. People say 95% of divorced couples settle outside of court, but unfortunately my case fell in the 5% category. I knew we had to be well prepared for my day in court, as there were a lot of complexities and I was coming out of a 21-year marriage. Jeffrey’s extreme attention to technical details, his knowledge of the law, and his unwavering discipline to defend my case dominated the multiple opposing counsels he was challenged by. Jeffrey over-communicated, was well prepared, was assertive and strategic – but most of all, his instincts were eerily accurate! He called the outcome ahead of almost every hearing I had to go to, not to mention the oppositions every move! His arguments were well orchestrated, and his written defenses were masterpieces. Jeffrey puts your mind at ease, but at the same time makes you fully aware of what your “best day” and what your “worst day” looks like. I can honestly say, I got my “best day” - and nothing in between! I owe it all to Jeffrey and his skilled legal team, and I am so relieved I had him to defend my divorce case. I know the outcome on my case could have looked a whole lot different if I hired the wrong attorney. Anybody can find a good attorney, but if you want an excellent attorney, hire Jeffrey D’Amore. Don’t rely on karma!

One word: Stellar!
I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Mr. D’Amore took a personal interest in getting to know me and understand my needs. He always kept it real and was upfront about what I could expect. No call or email went unanswered. To him, I was a person and what I needed mattered. Divorce is a difficult, invasive process, one that changes you, and at times can be quite overwhelming. But I learned that it doesn’t have to be... not if you have an attorney like Jeff on your side. In the end, we won a just and fair ruling.

D'Amore Law Firm
My husband walked out with no word or warning after being together for almost 20 years and moved to another state. When I first met Jeff, I was a literally a “train wreck”, absolutely devastated and in denial that this was the end of my marriage. As time went on going through the process of divorce and trying to get my life back on track, Jeff was my “rock”. He was there every step of the way with his support, professionalism and expertise. D’Amore Law Firm got me through one the worst times of my life and would recommend them to anyone. I could ramble on more, but read the other reviews – they are all true and spot on!

No need to look any further!
Going through divorce can become one of the the most difficult times in your life. I was not going to allow that allow that to happen to me. The first question I had was how do I find an attorney that I can trust. Someone that would demonstrate the utmost of ethics, someone that would do what was right for myself and my children. The answer was simple, lean on friends for a referral. As I asked one name kept on coming up. The attorney's name was Jeffrey S. D'Amore. Ironically a friend that was going through a divorce whose husband was a local divorce attorney also referred me to Jeffrey. After our first meeting I understood why I was referred to him. He set realistic expectations based on the law not emotions. He also kept my my emotions in check. When I got emotional he had the ability to instantly redirect me. Although the process wasn't fun, i came through it and was in a much better place. Michael S.

Truly the Best!!!!!
I had been through 2 other lawyers in my divorce and Jeff was the third. I had given up hope on finding closure. Jeff was the only lawyer that truly was there for me and my children. He is the only lawyer I could ever trust . He has values and morals hard to find these days.

Knowledgable, empathetic and supportive
Mr. D'Amore just finished my divorce. It was a very complex case as my spouse was suing me for lifetime alimony. He was able to get us to settle and I saved me a huge sum of money. His court room demeanor is excellent and has the respect of the judge. He kept me informed through the entire process as well as listened to my concerns. Highly recommend!!!!
