About me

Paolucci Law was started to give clients more personalized bankruptcy services.  Our firm specializes in Chapter 7 & Chapter 13 bankruptcy; it's all we do!  After working in a "volume practice," where clients are given numbers and treated as such, Dean knew there was a better way. Paolucci Law is that better way, where clients are treated with respect, loyalty and above all, with the personal attention to detail that is crucial in the legal field.
