Not Your Ordinary Litigation Law Firm

Celebrating the awards and acknowledgments of our firm’s partners

On Behalf of | Aug 25, 2022 | Firm News

There are thousands of law firms in New York, but not all of them offer the same caliber of representation. The best lawyers win cases, handle negotiations with confidence and give their clients the best chance of success when they go to court.

Professional organizations help members of the public identify the best lawyers for their circumstances in part by recognizing those who have done outstanding work in certain areas of law. Our firm is pleased to announce the continued recognition of our partners by numerous publications.

Our firm has received numerous recent accolades
