The law firm represents businesses and individuals, with very simple, to difficult and complex, needs. Many of the law firm’s clients begin their relationship with the law firm because of bankruptcy or bankruptcy-related concerns, and then remain with the law firm because of Mr. De Caprio’s expertise, and ability to guide them through everyday matters. Clients who are creating new businesses, buying or selling existing businesses, winding businesses down, negotiating leases, and with general corporate and commercial matters, have sought the law firm’s advice. The law firm has successfully handled real estate transactions and real property litigation, divorce and family law concerns, criminal defense and personal injury cases, defamation and tort cases, and estate planning and probate concerns. The law firm possesses a comprehensive law library, keeps its technology state of the art and its resources up to date; and colleagues consult or refer their more difficult cases to Mr. De Caprio.
When not practicing law for his own clients, Mr. De Caprio serves as the elected Village Justice of the Village of Haverstraw, Rockland County, New York, where he presides over criminal actions, including domestic violence, sexual assault and DWI cases, landlord-tenant proceedings, village ordinances, and small claims.
