Christopher DiBella is the founding partner of DiBella Law Offices, P.C. Few attorneys are able to understand and relate to the hardships accident victims suffer. Chris remembers vividly as a child receiving the call no one ever hopes to receive, that his older brother was involved in a life threating car accident. He remembers the impact the accident had on him and his family.
Chris recalls the stories about his grandfathers who immigrated to the United States with nothing and were forced to work in abhorrent conditions with little to no regard for their safety. He recalls the needless injuries his father suffered as a laborer in the construction industry.
“My background has given me a better understanding of the real impact accidents have victims and their families.”
Path to the Law
As the first generation in his family to attend college, Chris’s father pushed him on the path towards law school very early on. Chris recalls his father coming home from a hard day’s work on the construction site with a 400 page legal textbook for him to read.
His parents saw the legal profession as a place that one could have meaningful and profound impact on behalf of others. Early in his career, Chris fought on behalf of employees who were fired or laid off. He went on to serve the community as a prosecutor in district court. Chris understands that the practice of law is and always has been about the people.
“Listening and truly caring about my clients is the most important tool a lawyer can have.”
