About Us
About Our Business
Our firm started in 1995 as a small general practice run by Daniel
Melucci.  In 1998 the firm expanded with the addition of Steven
Celauro and Jeffrey Sklar.  Over the years we have represented
hundreds of clients successfully.    We have obtained millions of dollars
in recoveries for our clients.  We have represented prestigious
corporations.  And we have volunteered our services,
pro bono, to
worthy causes such as our work with The Trial Lawyers Care Pro Bono
project to provide legal representation for victims before The
September 11th Victim Compensation Fund of 2001.

In the year 200
8 we moved our main office to our current location in
downtown Manhattan and opened our Long Island office.
 We always
encourage our clients to schedule an appointment and come to visit
us, though we often have someone come to visit our clients at home or
in the hospital if that is more convenient.

Currently, our practice is limited to Civil Litigation (primarily personal
injury and commercial
matters), Bankruptcy, Elder Law and Estate
Planning.
