Fessenden Laumer & DeAngelo, PLLC can provide your legal options

Since 1984, the Jamestown based law firm of Fessenden Laumer & DeAngelo, PLLC has grown from three attorneys and three support staff to seven attorneys and 13 support staff.

This growth is directly attributable to its expanding personal injury, Social Security Disability and workers compensation practices over the past years.

“We are committed to building a law firm that serves the needs of local individuals, families, unions, and nonprofit organizations,” said Charles DeAngelo, a founding partner in the firm. “Our goal was to assemble a group of experienced attorneys, skilled and knowledgeable in many areas and the intricacies of the law. We wanted to provide area residents and organizations a local law firm with all the advantages, experience and technology of a larger city law firm. We are very pleased to have met this goal and are gratified that many people in Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Allegany Counties have chosen our firm for their personal injury and other legal needs, rather than leaving the area for legal assistance.”

The attorneys at Fessenden Laumer & DeAngelo PLLC have graduated from law schools throughout the northeastern United States, including Albany Law School, the State University at Buffalo School of Law, Cleveland Marshall College of Law, Georgetown University Law Center, and Syracuse University Law School.

The firm’s broad-based clientele includes families and unions in Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Allegany counties. Additionally, the firm is affiliated with numerous legal plans, including the following: CSEA Legal Plan, Employee Assistance Program through WCA Hospital, MetLife (formerly Hyatt) Legal Plan, New York State Teamsters Council Health and Hospital Fund/Legal Benefit, and the New York State United Teachers Plan.

The law firm is very active in community service and supports numerous community organizations. Fessenden Laumer & DeAngelo PLLC has served as counsel to many nonprofit organizations, including the Jamestown Vietnam Veterans’ Association, the Hunter’s Hope Foundation, Lakers Sled Hockey, Jamestown Area Midget Football, Jamestown Area Youth Soccer, Babe Ruth Baseball, and the Babe Ruth World Series.

The firm’s lawyers have also served on boards for and volunteered with local organizations such as the Jamestown Area Boys & Girls Club, CCYHA Sled Hockey Program, The Hunter’s Hope Foundation, Chautauqua Blind Association, Babe Ruth World Series Committee, The Reg Lenna Civic Center, Rotary, Optimists, Lions Club, Legal Assistance of Western New York, Chautauqua Youth Ballet, Chautauqua Lake Association, and Chautauqua County Humane Society.

The firm also represents injured workers in workers compensation matters as well as actively representing individuals seeking Social Security Disability benefits.

A broad array of other legal services are also provided including will, power of attorney, and health care proxy preparation, real estate closings, contract review, criminal court representation (including felony, misdemeanor and DWI charges), and civil litigation representation.

With an experienced staff of 13 and access to investigators and professional experts throughout the country, Fessenden Laumer & DeAngelo PLLC has developed a team approach to the practice of law specifically designed to benefit its clients.
