The VLP is excited to announce that Darren Digiacinto is this month’s V.I.V. – Very Important Volunteer.
Darren has been practicing law for 13 years; he has a bankruptcy/insolvency practice and handles civil litigation in the areas of business, construction, and real property. Since becoming a VLP volunteer in early 2020, Darren has already taken on two direct representation cases.
Darren attributes much of his success to his support system: his fantastic wife, two crazy dogs, great parents, and a team at Winston & Cashatt with whom he loves to work. Darren sees volunteering as a way to give back to those who haven’t had as much, or any, of the support and opportunities that he has enjoyed.
It was a “no-brainer” for Darren to take on bankruptcy cases for the VLP because “It is evident that one of the major purposes of the Bankruptcy Code is to allow honest debtors a chance at a fresh start, but not everyone who needs a fresh start is able to navigate the process on their own.” With assistance from volunteers like Darren, they can successfully get through the bankruptcy process and move on with their lives. According to Darren, the results for these clients can be life-changing.
Thanks, Darren, for all your hard work and for the life-changing impact you’ve had on VLP clients.
