We have a feeling that if you are here reading this bio, you’re not looking for academic qualifications; you are looking for the right attorney for you, your personality, and your circumstances. So, let us be the first to say, welcome! We encourage you to get to know your attorneys on a personal level.
Who Is Carmen When He’s Not Being an Attorney?
First and foremost, before all else, Carmen is a family man. Carmen often features his family in our newsletters. He’s shared stories of how he and his wife Marjorie met, and how she convinced him it was time to open his own firm in 1998. He’s shared stories of his baby girl going off to college, and her dream to be a doctor. He’s shared about growing up in New Jersey, working his father’s garage and learning all the tools he needed to succeed. He’s shared stories of cooking traditional Italian food with his mom. He’s shared his most exciting news in recent times: the birth of his first grandchild, a sweet little girl named Konnor and soon after, his first grandson, Karson. As the years go on, he will continue to share stories that give us a glimpse into the person he truly is, not just the attorney we all know. However, if you’d like to know what kind of attorney he is, don’t just take our word for it. Read one of the hundreds of reviews that people have left him here.
What Is Carmen Passionate About?
If you know Carmen, you know he is passionate about a lot of things. He gives back often—to his community, his employees, and his loved ones. As a member of the Christian community, Carmen feels he has a moral obligation to help those in need. Carmen has mentioned time and time again that the reason he became an attorney, and specifically a personal injury and bankruptcy attorney, is because he loves to help others. It’s this drive to help that makes him a natural volunteer, something he has done most of his life. It’s even something he’s ingrained in his own children.
Carmen and his children often volunteer at The Midwest Food Bank, which is why he chose it for his Passion Project. The Midwest Food Bank is a volunteer- and faith-based national food bank. Established in 2003, their mission is to share their love of Christ by alleviating hunger and malnutrition locally and throughout the world.

Carmen believes that when people volunteer, everyone in the community prospers. This is why he has encouraged all of his employees to participate in The Dellutri Law Group, PA Passion Projects!
