Are You A Victim Of Legal Malpractice?

It is rare to find an attorney willing to file a lawsuit directly against another attorney or a powerful law firm. Perhaps understandably, most attorneys are reluctant to sue their colleagues. At Schwartz, Ponterio & Levenson, PLLC, however, we have staked much of our careers on holding fellow lawyers responsible for their actions.

Schwartz, Ponterio & Levenson, PLLC, represents plaintiffs in legal malpractice litigation; that is, we only help people who have been victimized by the errors and misdeeds of their former lawyers. Our practice extends throughout the New York City metropolitan area.

We Understand Your Frustration

People come to us with tremendous frustration caused by their former lawyers. They wonder how they can get justice within the very legal system that seems to be stacked against them. Some people go as far as to believe that their former lawyers were somehow in cahoots with the other side, that there was a payoff, or that their lawyer took a dive.

We have never, in all our years of experience, seen a case in which this was true. The truth is invariably that the attorneys were negligent and failed in their duty to provide competent representation.

Initially, our clients are often wary about trusting another lawyer, and we work honestly and assiduously to earn their trust. We dedicate our entire law firm to helping people through their cases and getting them the restitution they deserve.
