John Massaroni, Esq. 1954-2017

John graduated from Draper High School in 1972 and from Siena College in 1975; he received his juris doctorate from Pace University Law School in 1979. John was a successful attorney in the Capital District for almost 40 years.

Some of his many professional accomplishments include: 2000-2001 Strathmore's Who's Who Leadership Achievement Award; President's Award from N.Y. State Trial Lawyers Association (twice); Membership in Million Dollar Advocates forum; President of Capital District N.Y. State Trial Lawyer Association. In addition to his career as a trial attorney, John was an authorized NFL Player's Association contract advisor. Throughout his distinguished career, John obtained numerous substantial jury awards for his clients.

When John was not advocating for his clients, he was busy pursuing his passion for acting and cooking. He was a member of the Schenectady Civic Players Group and appeared in several local productions. His love of cooking culminated in the opening of the restaurant Mio Vino in Altamont, New York, which received critical acclaim. John also enjoyed weight-lifting, spending time with his daughter, spending time with his three dogs, and watching his favorite show Seinfeld. John was also Paul DeLorenzo’ s beloved Godfather.

John will be deeply missed.
