John Emelio is the founder of ILS, and this is his personal story of how ILS began.

John's Story.

Hi, my name is John Emelio and I am the founder of ILS. I would like to share with you what inspired me to start this service.

In 2008, my parents went to Italy for a vacation. While there, my father was struck by a motorcycle while crossing the street and suffered serious injuries. The next day I was on a plane to Italy not knowing what I would find.  When I arrived at the hospital, no one attending to my father spoke English, and my father was still waiting for surgery. We were desperate.

The US Consulate in Naples gave us the name of a law firm that we could contact for help. The attorney we called came to the hospital right away and took charge of the situation. Having been born in Chicago, he was fluent in English and commanded the respect of everyone with whom he interacted. His friendly, confident manner was of great help to us. He advocated on my father’s behalf with the doctors, the insurance company, the family of the motorcycle rider, and the local police.

Thanks to the diligence and competence of this attorney, my father received the surgery he needed and arrived home safely. The attorney also negotiated one of the largest personal injury settlements ever awarded by the insurance company.

My desire now is to help others in need of legal assistance in Italy to receive the same competent and personal care from this firm that my family received.  Whether you are an individual or a business in need of assistance in Italy with trusts and probate, inheritance, personal injury, real estate, civil litigation, family law, or debt recovery, we can connect you with premier legal assistance in Italy.
