Nick F. De Martino relocated to Coral Gables, Florida after practicing law in New York for over 11 years. He is now a Commercial Real Estate Broker. His now deceased wife, Jean De Martino, wrote a book, The “Baby Lenore” Adoption Case: Strangers to the Blood, (1994), available through Amazon.com, about their experiences adopting two girls from the same adoption agency in Manhattan. One of the adoptions led to a highly publicized custody case which traversed the courts in New York and Florida and the United States Supreme Court and eventually changed the New York adoption law.
