DSU Celebrates Our 10 Year Anniversary

DiNicola, Seligson & Upton, LLP started its business of providing efficient results to its clients ten years ago today.  At that time, we knew that we had a great group of loyal clients and that we could provide excellent legal advice to our clients.  We did not know ten years ago that we were starting our new business in the worst recession in decades.  However, through our loyal client base, we not only made it through those difficult times, but have prospered.  We could not have done this without our great clients - so we thank our clients for their loyalty for the past ten years.  Over the past ten years, we have represented hundreds of clients in thousands of matters, in dozens of states throughout the United States.  We have represented clients in state and federal courts, in arbitrations and mediations, and have represented clients before dozens of administrative boards and authorities.

Our mission statement established in 2008 remains the same today, has driven us each day for the past decade, and will drive us each of the following days - Efficient Results.  Our core philosophy has never changed -- provide great legal advice at a reasonable cost.  That philosophy got us to where we are today, and will not change.  Our core clients in the construction industry, the alcoholic beverage industry, senior living industry, and hotel industry are the reason we established DSU and the reason we have prospered over the past ten years.  It is with the utmost gratitude that we thank those that helped us achieve this milestone. 

Once again, we thank our clients, colleagues, and our vendors, many of which have been with us for ten years, for helping us achieve this milestone.
