Our attorneys know that most people who were cheated out of money, can't pay hourly fees to an attorney, so our commercial litigation lawyers, regularly take commercial cases on contingency, so you have no out of pocket costs. Our law firm's philosophy is that the inability to pay up front, should not prevent you from recovering the money that you were cheated out of.   


Our experienced New York trial lawyers also handle criminal defense cases and we have won numerous stunning dismissals and not guilty charges on behalf of the falsely accused. With our extensive trial work in personal injury, police misconduct, medical malpractice and products liability, our lawyers have a well rounded background that can prove essential in winning a criminal case and getting a not guilty verdict.  Our diverse background gives us the ability to challenge scientific and medical evidence because our trial attorneys have a thorough understanding of medicine, forensics, engineering, and video evidence.
