Jerome “JD” DiMenna III began his legal career as a litigation associate at Silver & Kelmachter, LLP in New York City, primarily working with victims of medical malpractice and personal injury. During this time, he developed a reputation for crafting and then implementing legal strategies that brought personalized results for his clients.
Eventually, others began to take notice of his ability to solve complex problems in an efficient and creative manner. JD expanded these talents being named Vice President of Citibank’s anti-money laundering unit where his duties included the management of an investigatory team responsible for identifying and reporting suspicious retail bank account activities engaged in terrorist financing, human trafficking, money laundering and fraud. As his reputation for protecting corporations’ financial interests grew, he began realizing that he missed the personal interaction of helping individuals and believed it was time to refocus his critical eye to helping people protect and grow their wealth. After all, the whole reason he became a lawyer was to help people.
Taking the next step in his career he began transitioning back into private practice, specializing in wealth preservation, business development, and estate planning. He reached out to other professionals to help develop his new practice and was quickly recognized by Wiley Etter, LLC as a rising star. Wiley Etter, LLC identified that anyone who could vigorously protect a corporation would have the necessary firepower to advocate for families and small business owners.
With JD, you find a talent and ability to look three steps ahead from a unique corporate as well as personal perspective. This makes JD a force to be reckoned with. While JD’s focus has always been on crafting complex legal strategies, he now uses this talent to develop complex and specialized trusts to shield his clients from unwanted creditors and ensure that their wealth can safely grow.
