Personal Injury

Each year, millions of people in the United States are injured in accidents. Many of these accidents are unfortunately caused by the preventable carelessness or malicious intent of others. The law protects those harmed by negligent parties and allows the injured to seek compensation for their suffering. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident resulting from negligence or intentional harm of others, you may be entitled to receive just compensation for your physical and psychological injuries.

Employment Discrimination

Federal, State, and City employment laws prohibit employers from discriminating against their employees based on their gender, race, religion, sex, disability, national origin, or age.  Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination.  These laws also prohibit employers from retaliating against an employee who complains about discrimination or harassment in the workplace.

Real Estate

The process of buying, selling or developing real property is one of the most complex areas of the law as they involve old common law and modern secured transactions as well as lending regulations. If you are a buyer, seller or land developer embroiled in a real estate dispute or would like to take precautions to avoid conflict, our real estate litigation attorneys can work with you to ensure your money and property rights are adequately protected against adverse parties and claims.  Whether you are a seller with misgivings about the purchase contract, a buyer with questions about title or a developer in a dispute with your current residents, working with a real estate litigation attorney is the best way to avoid and overcome conflict in a cost-effective manner. In the context of residential real estate, our attorneys can handle even the most unusual of problems. For instance, some buyers have run into complications with government entities over land use, requiring a land use appeal.

Medical Malpractice

It is not unusual for accidents to occur when undergoing medical treatment. However, when an injury results from medical treatment that deviates from accepted standards of practice, a medical malpractice lawsuit may be the only way for the patient to recover damages. If you have suffered serious injury at the hands of negligent doctors, hospitals and other medical professionals, you may be entitled to considerable compensation for your pain and suffering as well as future and past lost wages and medical bills.

Construction Litigation

Construction disputes can arise under a variety of circumstances, including breach of contract, insurance coverage, delays, and work stoppages.  When these issues develop, they can result in considerable costs to contractors, property owners, and developers alike.  While these matters often work their way through the courts, they can also be resolved through alternatives to litigation such as negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.
