Firm Overview

New York City Legal Malpractice and Copyright Law

In February of 2005, experienced attorneys Matthew F. Schwartz and John Ponterio formed Schwartz, Ponterio & Levenson, PLLC. Each had been practicing law since 1992, successfully handling hundreds of cases. They were soon joined by associate attorney Brian Levenson.

At Schwartz, Ponterio & Levenson, PLLC, we have broad experience in all areas of civil litigation. In our work in every area, we marshal the resources of our entire firm in each case. While we have the experience to help our clients in all manner of disputes, we have devoted specific focus to legal malpractice and copyright law.

Matthew Schwartz has been involved in legal malpractice litigation for nearly 20 years. John Ponterio has been representing legal malpractice plaintiffs for the past 10 years. Together, they have helped people stand up to their former lawyers in cases involving issues of missed deadlines, unresponsive or incompetent attorneys, and ethical violations.

Brian Levenson handles copyright law issues at the firm. Brian has completed a wide variety of entertainment deals on behalf of artists, writers, producers and copyright owners and successfully recovered substantial sums in unpaid royalties from major labels and performance societies.

The lawyers at our firm are well-respected members of the New York City legal community, and get much of their business from referrals. They are members of the New York State Bar Association, the New York Trial Lawyers Association, and the New York City Bar Association.
