Civil Litigation

It is beneficial for individuals to seek experienced legal representation when a claim or defense involves a civil matter because it allows them to make an informed decision regarding whether a case should be litigated or settled with the comfort of knowing that they have experience in their corner. With John’s experience he is able to counsel clients on the legal strategy that will best serve them based on his knowledge and understanding of the local courts and New York laws. Whether that strategy includes settlement of a dispute, preparing for litigation, litigation, or settlement during the course of litigation, John strives to meet each client’s expectations and goals through a strategy individually tailored to each case.
