We are a boutique law firm that has fought zealously to achieve positive results on behalf of our clients with a diversity of needs. While the majority of our work focuses on the areas of medical malpractice and personal injury law, we serve clients with needs in the areas of Election Law, Article 78 proceedings, attorney reinstatement, contract law, pardon applications to the Governor’s office and criminal law. We have represented a wide array of clients that include corporate and business leaders, elected officials and political candidates. Mostly, however, our practice depends on everyday people that are victims of negligence, or otherwise, have special needs that this office will devote itself to.
Many of our cases have proven to be newsworthy. This includes: the horrific experience of a rape victim whose pleas to the District Attorney’s Office (and the public) went unanswered prior to our involvement; the extreme mismanagement of a client’s liposuction procedure by a doctor who performs conveyor-belt surgery, utilizing unsanitary practices; the violation of the civil rights of students and school administrators by the Department of Education and certain elected officials; the gubernatorial pardon of a resident alien with a troubled past who turned his life around.
We also were successful in attaining the release of Judge Phillips from confinement to a nursing home during the final year of his life – who was being detained against his will due to political intrigue,, and attained the unanimous approval of a panel of Judges in the Second Judicial Department for the reinstatement of John O’Hara as an Attorney. Indeed, the subcommittee that considered Mr. O’Hara’s readmission issued a stinging rebuke of the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, and recognized the actions of District Attorney Joe Hynes as tantamount to a political prosecution.
Both Partners of this firm have considerable experience in trying cases from inception – with the selection of a jury, through verdict. We also have attained considerable experience in Election Law – enabling us to assist political candidates to obtain a spot on the ballot in the most politically-entrenched state, favoring incumbents, in this country. The Partners have also been successful in several cases on behalf of the Sikh community, as well as other religious or cultural groups, where the rights of its membership has been thwarted.
Recently, we achieved $3 million dollar and $1.45 million dollar settlements in two separate medical malpractice cases. We have achieved verdicts on behalf of clients ranging from $382,000.00 to 1.8 million-dollars. We recently settled a case involving a dog-bite for $125,000.00, and another “slip-and-fall” that occurred in a New York library for $145,000.00.
We have argued cases within the five boroughs, as well as Westchester, Nassau, Rockland and Dutchess Counties – including the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court (First and Second Departments), and the New York State Court of Appeals.
We stand by the motto that this firm will fight for a client’s rights for as long as it takes for justice to prevail. The firm will also seek restraining orders against entities, or individuals that are, in some way, harming the everyday people that seek our help.
The Partners of this firm have also handled sexual harassment and various other employment cases, including Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) cases for both Plaintiffs and Defendants, on behalf of small business owners and individuals.
No case is too large or too small – and we will try everything in our power to create a “fit” of our talents to suit the needs of your case.
