For more than forty years I have been representing  individuals against powerful opponents,  using innovative approaches to successfully litigate some of the most difficult cases in the profession, including legal malpractice, estate litigation and civil sexual assaults. My clients have included lawyers that have been sued, clients that are suing lawyers, family members involved in destructive litigation and individuals who feel the system is just not protecting them. I have been honored to be AV rated by Martindale Hubbel ( the highest rating for competence and ethics) since 1990 and listed as a Pre Eminent Lawyer in America in Civil Trial Practice since 2002.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Contacted Attorney's office after he answered a question on AVVO.
His office responded to my inquiry first thing in the morning. They were very prompt in answering my message. I would strongly recommend this firm.

A very good lawyer !
Clifford is very knowledgeable, professional,skillful and passionate. He is the best attorney that we know about. I had a very hard “slip and fall” case back in 2007. That case was lost in Arbitration. My husband and I contacted Clifford. He took over, and that case turned out to be a legal malpractice case . The way that Clifford handled everything put so much hope and confidence in us. He walked us through every stage of the process with attention to even the smallest details, explanations of every event and just plain cared about us as humane beings. No need to say, that going to a Court Room with jury is very hard, especially for people whose native language is not English but Russian. For four long days in that Court Room we were absolutely sure that we had the best attorney ever. And we were right, we settled the case before the jury went out. He is a very good attorney and a very good men. We would highly recommend him to anybody who needs the best attorney!
