Will the Coronavirus pandemic affect my case?

March 30th, 2020

The Coronavirus has impacted the lives of all of us, and you may have some questions about how the virus will affect your case:

First of all, Dolce Panepinto, P.C.is open.  We are continuing to work on our client’s cases.  We have the resources and structure to weather this storm. Our lawyers and staff have a dedicated plan in place that will allow us to continue serving our client’s and their needs.  Our client’s cases will not be put on hold, instead our lawyers and staff have been working every day making sure that we continue to take care of our client’s needs.

The Coronavirus has led to the courts in New York State closing, what does this mean for my case?

While it’s true that the courts are closed, there are many things that can be done on your case that do not involve the courts. For example, trial preparation and case preparation happen outside the courtroom.  Our lawyers are continuing to prepare our client’s cases so that when the courts re-open, we hit the ground running.

What do I do if I have more questions?

Part of our job has always been to answer your questions and help with any concerns you may have. That has not changed, we are ready and willing to help.

If you have any questions, call us at 852-1888, contact us here on our website or reach out to us on social media.

Dolce Panepinto works to hold rich and powerful accountable at UB

October 23rd, 2017

        Dolce Panepinto has joined the fight to hold the rich and powerful accountable at University at Buffalo.  A legal team is requesting that a nonprofit corporation that develops residence halls for UB, make their financial records public. The State Supreme Court has been asked to force the University at Buffalo Foundation Faculty-Student Housing Corp. to release annual budgets and other documents related to the nonprofit organization.

“Taking cases, which help empower people, whether construction workers or students, is our firm’s mission,” stated Sean Cooney, a partner at Dolce Panepinto.

Why you need to VOTE NO!

September 26th, 2017



A lot is at stake this November for workers all across the state. New Yorkers will have the opportunity to vote on hosting a constitutional convention. The purpose of this convention is to write a new state constitution or revise the existing one. However, if this happens it could lead to many problems for workers and their families. Labor regulations are already under attack in Congress, and it is crucial that we keep state protections for workers. Currently our state constitution gives workers the right to fair compensation and the right to unionize. We need to ensure these rights stay ours and VOTE NO in November.

These are just some of the groups who will be voting against the convention:

  • Environmental Advocates of New York
  • Equality New York
  • New York State AFL-CIO
  • New York State Alliance for Retired Americans
  • New York State Professional Fire Fighters
  • Strong Economy for All Coalition
  • Working Families Party
  • NYS Public Employees Federation (PEF)
  • Western New York Area Labor Federation
  • New York Professional Nurses Union (NYPNU)
  • Buffalo AFL-CIO

If you have any questions or concerns about the upcoming vote please call Dolce Panepinto at 716-852-1888.

We are here to fight for workers’ rights.
