Our attorneys have litigated and successfully tried to verdict claims against professionals in state and federal courts. We have also represented professionals before the NYS Board of Regents, the Office of Professional Discipline, the Board of Professional Medical Conduct, the Insurance Department, and accreditation boards of health care providers and insurers as well as a wide array of regulatory agencies in New York State.
