Frank J. D’Amico, Sr., A Professional Law Corporation, was founded in 1954 when Mr. D’Amico returned from the Korean War after serving as judge-advocate general officer. In New Orleans, Mr. D’Amico has long been recognized as a paragon in the field of personal injury law. He has successfully tried numerous cases, ranging from those involving severe brain injuries, to serious burns, product liability, roadway hazards, 18-wheeler incidents and motor vehicle wrecks, among others. Mr. D’Amico is highly regarded by colleagues Ellen C. Badeaux of Covington, and Mark Mueller of Austin, Texas. According to Badeaux, “Frank has seen and done it all in personal injury. He is an encyclopedia of car accident cases. There is no one more knowledgeable.” Mueller has called him “a legend and a role model.”
