Gloria R. & Luciano A. Lama

A FAMILY TRADITION: In 1948, his pen-pal from Ithaca, NY, Gloria Salino, bought a round-trip airline ticket to Rome to meet him. After a whirlwind romance, the two were married, and after six months, she convinced the young attorney that it would be best for the two to go to the U.S. to raise a family because of the state of war-torn Italy. They sold the return airfare, and with the money, bought two tickets on the ship Nea Helen for the voyage from Italy to New York City.Luciano worked days at Morse Chain, nights as a waiter at the Clinton House Restaurant, and attended Cornell Law School.He became a consultant to Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, and in 1960 founded the L.A. Lama Insurance Agency, serving Central New York until 2005. The L. A. Lama Insurance Agency is now part of First Niagara Risk Management.Luciano A. Lama’s love and respect for the law was the inspiration for the founding of the LAMA LAW FIRM, LLP in 1995.
