General Civil Litigation

Our attorneys have decades of experience in handling general civil litigation; David Smith alone has over 35 years of experience in general civil litigation.

Our office frequently represents family members who are being sued by nursing homes or assisted living facilities for costs associated with caring for their loved ones. We also commonly represent family members who are sued by the local County Department of Social Services (or Human Resources Administration in the 5 Boroughs) for Medicaid benefits paid out during their loved ones’ lifetimes. There are often reasons why pursuing a claim against these family members is not proper, but these proceedings are frequently initiated anyway. If you ever find yourself in such a situation, consulting with experienced and knowledgeable attorneys with experience in this area will allow you to defend yourself and protect your interests.
