We represent clients in a broad range of commercial and civil litigation practice areas in the federal and state courts, including commercial banking litigation; mortgage foreclosures and other real estate matters; general contract disputes; commercial and residential landlord/tenant, shareholder and partnership disputes; disputes with governmental agencies; administrative law, estate and Surrogate Court litigation; lender liability matters; construction matters; and marital/family law. We provide the benefits of a full service litigation law firm without the high overhead or bureaucratic overkill of a large firm. A primary source of our business has been referrals from other law firms who recognize our firm’s expertise in litigation matters.
