At Doremus Kantor & Zullo in Burlington, Vermont, we offer a variety of legal services. Many of our clients have used us for more than just one legal issue. Personal injury clients have come to us regarding a divorce matter and clients who come to us for a real estate transaction may be seeking estate planning or probate help.


When selecting an attorney, we have found that clients want the following attributes we possess:


Doremus Kantor & Zullo is a family-style, general practice law office that offers an informal, non-corporate setting. Client relations are our primary concern. Many come to us after experiencing a rough or traumatic incident or event in their life, including divorce or an accident. Our attorneys communicate with them and identify their specific needs, bringing a level of compassion and legal experience that few firms offer.


Our lawyers cover a wide and diverse age demographic. Some are seasoned litigators practicing law for the better part of the past thirty years. Others are new, eager, and interested in incorporating cutting-edge technology to help run our office and build your case. All of our attorneys do not bill clients for services that they do not need. If we feel that you do not have a case, we will let you know that immediately.


Even in the midst of a global economic recession, the United States continues to be a land of opportunity for many different people from around the world.  Immigration policies can be very difficult and confusing waters to navigate. 


While bankruptcy has a long held stigma in American society, the unfortunate reality is that many honest, hard-working and responsible people are left with no choice .  Health care bills, mortgage payments, car payments, credit card debt - all of these burdens can leave good people paralyzed and frustrated.

If you are unable to make ends meet day-to-day, then bankruptcy may very well be your best option. You'll get to have a fresh start, and your credit score can recover after bankruptcy much more quickly than you think.
