My entire legal career has been at Cellino & Barnes, focusing on representing injured people.  Since joining Cellino & Barnes in 1998, my goal has always been to get the best possible result for each of my clients. I achieve this by knowing when to take a case all the way to trial and when to settle. Whether it's an injury from an automobile accident, a fall, or a dog bite, I will not accept anything less than what my clients fully deserve.  In every case I handle, I strive to develop a personal relationship with my client so that I can fully understand how the injury has affected his or her life. As a proud father, I understand how an injury to one family member can affect the family as a whole. It is with that personal knowledge that I am able to help each client through this difficult period. I realize that all personal injury cases are different, and that some are more catastrophic than others. However, each client deserves - and receives - the same effort, attention and respect from me.  I take great pride in being a member of a firm that focuses solely on representing injured people against insurance companies. It is through that focus that I have developed the skill and knowledge to go head to head with the insurance companies on a daily basis to get each client what he or she fully deserves for an injury.  Education  1998 - Licensed to practice Law in New York State J.D. earned in 1997 - University of Toledo College of Law/State University of New York at Buffalo Law School B.A. earned in 1991 – John Carroll University Experience  Trial attorney, Cellino & Barnes (1998 - Present) Honors and Professional Organizations  Erie County Bar Association New York State Bar Association Western New York Trial Lawyers Association Member of Million Dollar Advocates Forum Presidential Who's Who Community/Military Service  Nativity of Mary Parish Council (2006) Soccer Coach (2002 – present) Nativity of Mary Home School Association (2001- present) Personal  I reside in Clarence with my 4 children – Christopher, Gabriella, Isabella & Nathaniel.   [Attorney D'Amato represents clients in auto accidents, slip and fall, labor law and more.]  Practice Area(s) Auto Accidents  Bicycle Accidents  Boating Accidents  Broken Bones and Fractures  Burn and Scar Injury Cases  Dog Bites  Drunk Driving Accidents  Serious Injuries  (Primary)  Slip & Fall Injury Accident  Spinal Cord Injury Cases  Wrongful Death  Education
