Our lawyers and staff recognize that each case is unique. We provide each of our clients with the legal service, counsel, and support that best suits their individual needs. In all of the hundreds of cases we have handled, we have made sure to give each client the information they need to make the right decisions for their situation. We view our legal representation as a partnership in which we work with our clients and not just for them.
While we are skilled and aggressive trial lawyers, we understand that often out-of-court settlements are in the best interests of our clients. We strive to resolve most legal disputes through negotiation and arbitration, thereby avoiding the cost and uncertainty of a trial. We are here to protect our clients' rights, interests, assets, and livelihood.
We routinely represent clients in New York and Connecticut state courts, as well as the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York and the District of Connecticut. Peter Tilem is a former Senior Prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office.
