Excellent Service
Declaring bankruptcy is an embrassing and humbling experience; sharing your personal information with a stranger makes you feel very vunerable. I was so pleasantly surprised to find you and everyone on your staff very professional and knowledgeable. My e-mails and phone calls were returned in a timely manner. I sensed that my best interest was the goal. Thank you and your staff for making this experience stress free.

"Honest, Responsive, Excellcent & Affordable Service"
August 18,2014 Dear Mr. Dellutri, My husband and I want to thank you and your incredible support team for all of your time, advice, concern, and the reassurances you have given us with our case. Not knowing what to expect, we kept waiting for the sky to fall, but, thankfully, it never did (as you indicated it would not). We were also impressed over and over again on the quick responses to our questions and can't say enough about the professionalism your group gave us. In particular, please know that Ashley, Alaina, and Ronnie were outstanding and dealt with each of our concerns promptly. You are a lucky "boss" to have such a devoted team and they represent you well. ​ I also enjoyed reading your articles you wrote on the web network and found your arguments very informative. My husband and I are relieved to have gone through the process and we are grateful for the quick and honest answers to our questions. Thanks, again. Sincerely, Anita K.

Thank you
I wanted to say Thank you so much to Attorney Carmen Dellutri, David Lampley, Lauren Horton and Ronnie Fedorczyk. They were all amazing through my bankruptcy. I never had to wait more then a day for a call back and my questions were always answered in a way that was easy for me to understand. I was extremely upset that health issues brought me to have to file, but the Dellutri Law Group made me feel so comfortable and never looked down on me. I would recommend if anyone has questions to contact them. Thank you again.

I’m a hard to please with high expectations professional
It’s not always easy to meet my expectations. I believe the way we learn to be better and do better is through constructive feedback and almost always have some. That was not the case in my experience with Dellutri Law Group. My initial interaction with David Lamply was so incredible I contacted the office staff afterwards (who also was very friendly and kind) to share how impressed I was. David was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, but the outstanding qualities were his humility and compassion. Interactions with other attorneys while vetting was an arrogance and put off attitude. David was very pleasant and just the opposite. Nicholas Paul was very personable, attentive and efficient. Lastly, Carmen Dellutri, called after our business simply to ask if we were satisfied and if there was anything they could have done better. He displayed a true humility and eagerness to learn of ways they could improve along with a genuine concern that my experience exceptional. Yes, yes, Carmen! It was an exceptional experience.

If I could give 10 stars I woud
Not only has Mr. Dellutri been helpful during this crucial time, but he's been an angel on earth. He doesn't represent us but he has guided my fiancé and I in every step. We have created a relationship even though he doesn't represent us. Their office is amazing!

You just never know what life is going to throw at you. We’ve had some hardships and Carmen, Ronnie, and team have been right there to help. Financial difficulties are tough and embarrassing but you never felt like a bother and never made to feel ashamed. Ronnie was always quick to answer our endless questions and was soo kind. If you are having financial hardships, CALL them. You’ll rest easier knowing that you have a plan.

They did everything and more to make sure my problems were solved. I was a nervous wreck, I couldn’t sleep because my bills got bigger and bigger. I didn’t even want to answer my phone. I was nervous when I went to them, but right away they made me feel at ease. I can sleep and I can breathe again thanks to the Delutry group. Thank you so much for all your help.

Weight has been lifted
I have used Dellutri law firm twice now, that’s how much I trust and respect the people who work there. David Lampley was thorough, helpful and always ready to answer my questions. Nicholas Paul guided me step by step with the process, always there when I needed a question answered and quick to reply. They all made a stressful situation much easier for me and gave me a sense of relief. Through the past few years I have recommended the Dellutri law firm to two of my friends and they, too had very positive experiences. I would not hesitate to tell anyone looking for legal help to call Dellutri!

happy client
i chose Dellutri Law Group after first going to another law firm, the first firm treated me as though they were doing me a favor and showed little respect, I left that office and would never return. I then went to Dellutri and meet with David Lampley , who treated me as he really wanted to help and did show me respect . The outcome was more than I expected and I am extremely happy with the Dellutri Law Group

Professional and Courteous! A firm to trust
I came in for a consult today looking for legal advice and I came out with much more. Carmen took his time to explain the process to me and although my case wasn’t part of his specialty he did refer me to someone who could take care of me. Carmen and Casey helped get all my paperwork done and ensured that I was taken care of for the next person. If I ever find myself in need of more legal advice I will definitely come here again. I recommend to anyone in need!

When you are in financial distress, physical and emotional pain, it can be difficult to think clearly and make good decisions. For me, it was a horrible place to be. Going through health issues, resent medical surgery. Attorney Carmen Deluttri treated us with dignity and respect. Through the process we Had different personnel assisting us, calls were answered, VM were returned. Deluttri Law Firm made the bankruptcy process very smooth and painless. Bankruptcy can seem very scary and a lot of things associated with bankruptcy can be confusing, Attorney David Lampley with Dellutri Law, made the process simple and straight forward. Also, paralegal Teresa Campoli was very helpful and friendly. explained things in terms We could understand. Also Ronnie, was very helpful in getting our file together. We have been through this process many years ago in another state. At that time the attorney’s involved took advantage of us as well as many of their other clients. I can honestly say Dellutri Law and it’s staff on the other hand have been the complete opposite, they were extremely helpful. They were reassuring, knowable and effective. Dellutri made the process so much easier and gave us peace of mind in a stressful but successful outcome. We selected Dellutri Law from recommendations, reviews and online referrals. If you are thinking of hiring an attorney, I would highly recommend Dellutri Law Firm without reservations.

A Firm You Can Trust
Back in 2020 I found out that I had lost a car accident case that would leave me with a massive amount of medical debt and credit card debt. Additionally I was in the middle of preparing to relocate for work and sell our house. I was facing depression and stress with no light at the end of the tunnel. I contact The Dellutri Law Group among many other local firms. I quickly received a call back from Casey Byrus and we set up an appointment. We met with David Lampley to discuss my situation and options. We were pleased with David's plan but I still reached out to other firms to get their opinions. I met with the Bankruptcy Bodyguard and Zinn Law where I was told that I could not file Chapter 7 and that I could be committing fraud, that Chapter 13 would be my only option as well as the other attorney not wanting to touch my case since I was moving out of state. I did not just want to go with Dellutri because its what I wanted to hear, I wanted to make the best and most logical choice. My wife and I had another meeting with David to re-discuss what the other lawyers told us and he reassured us that we could file Chapter 7 and be fine (Side Note: My theory on the other lawyers pushing people into Chapter 13 is that they receive a set payment by the court for 3-5-7 years while you are on a payment plan to repay debts so its in their best interest to push Chapter 13. Its set profit for them). We decided to go with Dellutri and it was the best decision we made. Casey was always there to help and showed us support the entire way. I was able to file alone without including my wife and we were able to sell our home, keep the profits and settle with repurchasing some of our assets back in the end. I highly recommend them to anyone that might be in a similar situation and are feeling trapped.
