Cambareri & Cambareri law firm to absorb Robert Durr’s firm, move to larger space

By Journal Staff


SYRACUSE — The Syracuse law firm of Cambareri & Cambareri, LLP is absorbing the law practice of Robert A. Durr and will be moving to a larger office space down the street at the end of May.


Durr was recently appointed the new Onondaga County Attorney by Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney. He will start in his new position on June 15.


Attorney Stefano (Steve) Cambareri, partner and co-founder of Cambareri & Cambareri, says the assets his firm is taking on include Durr’s clients and their legal matters — to the extent that his firm gets permission from clients — as well as some physical assets, including technology equipment.


Cambareri & Cambareri was started in 1999. Steve and his brother, Dom Cambareri, are the firm’s partners.


One associate attorney from Durr’s practice, Louis Elliott, is joining the Cambareri firm, as well as one support staff member. Steve Cambareri said the additions come at a good time because he is in need of both. 


Cambareri says his law practice and Durr’s share much of the same focus, including criminal defense, DWI, vehicle and traffic offenses, and personal-injury cases. 

Durr’s practice also handles matrimonial and family law work, Cambareri told CNYBJ, an area of practice his firm had always referred to other lawyers. To help handle those matters now, Cambareri says the firm brought on a new attorney, Lisa DiPoala Haber, as of counsel.


With the new additions, Cambareri says his firm now has three attorneys (including the two brothers), three support staff, and one of counsel. Its current office at 305 Montgomery St. is about 1,600 square feet, he says. The new office at 217 Montgomery St., to which the firm is moving on May 29, has double the space with 3,246 square feet. Cambareri told CNYBJ he expects his firm’s revenue to also double in the next year.


The move to the larger office space was spurred mostly by the addition of Durr’s law practice, which is located at 103 E. Water St. Durr’s law office will remain open until the end of May, according to Cambareri.


He says Cambareri & Cambareri was originally making plans to merge with Durr’s firm, but Durr’s appointment as county attorney forced those plans to change.


Cambareri says he and Durr have been friends since they worked together in the Onondaga County District Attorney’s office, which Cambareri says he joined in 1991.
