Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation

A civil lawsuit typically involves one person or party pursuing financial compensation from someone else. These cases may involve the claim that one party is responsible for the personal injuries a person suffered, a breach of contract that caused financial harm to a business, or situations in which a party owes money that has not been paid on time or in full. We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in civil litigation, and we will do everything we can to resolve your matter successfully. While we will work to help you negotiate a settlement out of court, we are fully prepared to argue on your behalf in courtroom litigation.

Civil Rights Litigation

Civil Rights Litigation

Defending against criminal charges can be difficult enough on its own, but in many cases, defendants are also the victims of illegal actions by law enforcement officials. Fortunately, those who have been unfairly targeted or suffered harm due to their race, sexual orientation, religion, or other factors can take legal action to hold police departments or city or state governments responsible. We can provide legal representation in cases involving excessive force and other forms of police brutality, illegal search and seizure, wrongful arrest or imprisonment, cruel and unusual punishment, or other civil rights violations.

Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense

The deck can often seem stacked against those who have been arrested and charged with a crime. No matter the nature or severity of criminal charges, having the right defense attorney on your side is essential, and you will want to work with a strong litigator who has experience helping clients achieve success in criminal cases. We can provide you with the defense you need against state and federal charges, including DUI, drug possession, drug conspiracies and trafficking, money laundering, white collar crimes, and juvenile charges. We can also assist with major crimes such as murder, grand larceny, or fraud that can result in lengthy prison sentences, as well as sex crimes that may require a person to register for life as a sex offender.

Divorce and Family Law

Divorce and Family Law

Legal situations involving spouses or other family members can often be complicated and emotional, and to achieve success in these cases, you need to work with a qualified, dedicated, and compassionate family law attorney. We will fight to protect your financial interests when getting divorced, including addressing the division of property and determining whether spousal support should be awarded. We can also help divorcing or unmarried parents resolve disputes over child custody, address relocation requests by one parent, and ensure that child support is calculated correctly. Following the end of your divorce, we can help you enforce a divorce or child custody order or pursue modifications based on changes in a family's circumstances.

Religious Corporation Litigation

Religious Corporation Litigation Religious Corporation Litigation

When disputes arise among the clergy, trustees, or members of a religious organization or other non-profit organization, determining how to resolve these matters can often be a complex undertaking. In these cases, the decisions made will be based on the organization's by-laws, New York's Religious Corporations Law, and any other applicable state or local laws. We can help you determine the best ways to handle these matters, and we will work to find a solution that meets the needs of all parties involved. While we will do everything we can to negotiate an agreement, we can also help you understand when litigation may be necessary, and we can provide legal representation inside the courtroom.

Appellate Practice

Appellate Practice Appellate

If a criminal trial or civil lawsuit resulted in an unfavorable judgment, you may still have legal options. In these situations, you may be able to file an appeal based on errors that occurred during the trial or because the law was applied incorrectly, and you may ask for an appeals court to overturn the decision or order a new trial. However, appellate courts follow very different procedures than civil or criminal courts, and you need to work with an attorney who understands how to handle these types of cases. We can ensure that the correct motions are filed within the proper time limits, and we can prepare appellate briefs and make oral arguments in appellate court to demonstrate why the decision in your case was incorrect.
