Attorney Profile

A co-founder and partner at Muscato Dimillo & Vona, George V.C. Muscato divides his practice between plaintiff's personal injury and wrongful death litigation and criminal defense matters. From the firm's office in Lockport, New York, he represents clients throughout Niagara and Erie counties, including Niagara Falls and Buffalo, who have been harmed in cases involving motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, defective products and premises liability. Mr. Muscato's criminal defense practice includes state and federal misdemeanors and felonies ranging from driving under the influence and drug possession to manslaughter and other violent crimes.

After receiving a Bachelor of Arts from Canisius College in Buffalo, Mr. Muscato pursued his legal education at the University of Akron School of Law, graduating in 1972 with his Juris Doctor. He then spent a year as an assistant district attorney with the Niagara County District Attorney's office before entering private practice. This experience has enabled Mr. Muscato to anticipate the strategies that prosecutors will use in criminal trials. He is admitted to practice before all New York state courts, as well as before the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York and the Supreme Court of the United States.

Mr. Muscato has long been active in his community. A former president of the Lockport City School District Board of Education, he serves on the board of directors of Eastern Niagara Hospital.
