Two leading Capital Region law firms join forces to better serve clients



The partners at Dreyer Boyajian and LaMarche Safranko Law announced the merger of their two firms, to become Dreyer Boyajian LaMarche Safranko, Attorneys at Law (www.DBLS.com).

“The merging of Dreyer Boyajian and LaMarche Safranko Law brings together two firms that share a common philosophy to always put the client first.” Donald Boyajian said.

William Dreyer and Don Boyajian’s long list of high-profile cases includes the successful defense of former New York State Senate Majority Leader Joseph L. Bruno, the representation of injury victims including the mass E. coli outbreak at the Washington County Fair, the capsizing of the heavy freighter Stellamare in the Port of Albany, as well as the successful recoupment of tax dollars for Saratoga County municipalities affected by PCBs in the Hudson River.

George LaMarche and Andrew Safranko, the founders of LaMarche Safranko Law, have become the go to team in the area of criminal law. LaMarche Safranko Law has successfully defended scores of clients accused in all New York State and Federal courts. They are often called upon to represent law enforcement officials under investigation or accused of misconduct. In the field of personal injury litigation, LaMarche Safranko Law has been at the forefront of advanced advocacy on behalf of injured pedestrians and cyclists (www.PedBikeLaw.com). The firm has a proven track record of large settlement awards and trial verdicts on behalf of clients who have suffered severe and catastrophic injuries. LaMarche Safranko Law has consistently been named in US News, Best Lawyers and Best Law Firms, as well as Super Lawyers.

“George LaMarche and Andrew Safranko are two gifted and talented attorneys who have great passion and have achieved great results for their clients.” said William Dreyer.

Donald Boyajian is the Capital Region past president of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association. William Dreyer is a recipient of the New York State Bar Association Award for Attorney Professionalism and is the past president of the Federal Bar Association of the Northern District of New York.

Dreyer Boyajian LLP recently celebrated its 30th anniversary of practice and has been a leading advocate for clients in the areas of personal injury, federal criminal law, governmental investigations, class actions, mass torts and business litigation.

“Bill Dreyer and Don Boyajian are successful attorneys because they are passionate about their cases and care about their clients; they are exceptional lawyers and Andrew and I are honored to call them our partners.” George LaMarche said.

The merger brings together the expertise of highly respected and experienced attorneys across different generations. Together the members of the new firm bring over 110 years of combined experience to their clients.

“Our clients will have an even stronger team behind them and the confidence of knowing that they will have every advantage for a successful resolution of their case and will achieve every bit of justice they deserve.” said Andrew Safranko.

The new firm will operate out of its combined current offices in Albany, Clifton Park, Saratoga Springs and Plattsburgh.

James Peluso and John Dowd have also been named partners in this merger. Mr. Peluso will head the firm’s mass tort team while Mr. Dowd will head the commercial litigation team.
