I have been practicing law for over 30 years. My office consists of two lawyers, myself and Abe Omerhodzic. Also we have three paralegals, a nurse and an accountant. We are located in Cheektowaga New York five minutes from the Galleria Mall. I was past President of the New York State Trial Lawyers in which is was in between Albany and Buffalo fighting for changes in which benefit our clients. I teach continuing education for many lawyers. My favorite part of the job is the "chess like moves" each side makes during a trial. I have gotten my claim to fame from the results i've gotten during trials. Throughout the years my firm has helped thousands of hardworking individuals get the compensation they deserve. I am the type of person who will get to know each of my clients personally and go out of my way just to make your life easier. During cases there is a lot of paperworks and complications between insurance companies. My staff will take all that stress off your back and solve each problem in a timely mannor that works for you. If there is anything you think we can help you with please just give us a call. If we are unable to help you with the type of issue you have, I can surely point you in the direction of someone who specializes in what you need. At my office the client comes first and unlike my completition we will work with you 1 to 1.

Rich and staff were very professional and courteous throughout my personal injury case. The staff was very helpful filling out paperwork and getting all of my documents to the insurance company.

Scan me, gave me the wrong information about how much I owe medical
How does your attorney make more money than you on your own settlement? Never heard that in my life. He is a con artist and told me false information. I asked him five times. How much do I owe my medical before I settled he told me amount and it turned out to be six times more.
