Adam D’Antonio is in private practice in Garden City, focusing on elder law and guardianship, trusts and estates, and bankruptcy. He first worked with Nassau/Suffolk Law Services as a law student. Since his admission, he has been involved in the Nassau VLP Bankruptcy Clinic and the Advanced Directives Initiative, as well as the Suffolk Pro Bono Project’s Social Security/Disability program. Over the past ten years, D'Antonio has assisted on 53 VLP pro bono matters, volunteering over a hundred hours to needy clients.
During the past 13 years of association with the NCBA, D'Antonio served as a board member and a chair of the Membership and Community Relations Committees. He was also among the first group of recipients of the Access to Justice Award for pro bono service. In 2019, he received the Board of Directors Award for Outstanding Service to the NCBA.
D'Antonio feels that “serving as a volunteer attorney is extremely rewarding because we assist individuals who would otherwise be intimidated by or prohibited from seeking legal advice due to the inability to afford consultation fees. These people are often overwhelmed and confused. It’s a wonderful feeling to see their concerns ease after a consultation.”
D'Antonio believes that we will begin to see more COVID related concerns as forbearance and foreclosure moratoriums come to an end. “The next few months would be a great time for new attorneys to become involved with the program. “
