Practice Areas

We dedicate much of our time to representing children who have been injured by lead poisoning. We have sued dozens of negligent landlords in Erie, Monroe, Onondaga, and other Western New York counties. We have carefully prepared cases to bring about settlements that will make a difference in the lives of these children. One recent successful outcome is listed below:

A Rochester landlord’s insurance company agreed to pay $310,000 for the benefit of a 13-year-old boy who suffered lead poisoning in a Sullivan Street house when he was a toddler. The landlord defendant in the case was a sophisticated rental property owner who had received notices about lead hazards existing at several of his other properties before the poisoning of this child. The settlement money has been structured to provide the client with future lump-sum payments through young adulthood.
