Civil Litigation

Civil litigation may involve disputes between individuals, businesses, non-profit organizations, municipalities or a range of other entities. At McDermott & Mandery, LLP our attorneys provide aggressive representation in civil litigation matters in Long Island and New York City courts.

Our attorneys have represented clients in both the New York State and Federal court systems, and in various arbitration and mediation forums. Our office regularly represents both individuals and business owners in civil disputes. Our clients have included not-for-profit companies, condominium associations, medical and dental practices, various retail establishments, sales organizations, computer consulting companies, insurance companies, environmental engineering companies, accounting firms, and real estate companies.

Facing a contentious dispute or lawsuit can be a very chilling situation. Our attorneys can provide you with the guidance you need to understand the litigation process, so you not only understand how to protect yourself or your company, but also can make sound business and financial decisions in deciding how to proceed.

We will explore with you the facts and law applicable to your situation, explain the types of damages and remedies available through the courts, discuss potential outcomes, and candidly discuss with you the cost-benefit of continuing litigation versus settlement. In addition to representation in court, we may be able to assist you in resolving disputes, outside the courtroom.

We will continually discuss and evaluate with you the “cost-benefit” of litigation, both at the beginning of your case and as the case progresses.

When bringing or defending a lawsuit, strict time limits apply, so quickly contacting a lawyer is vital.
