About The Firm

Garbarini & Scher, P.C., founded in 1962, is one of oldest defense firms in New York City. For more than 50 years, we have defended thousands of cases alleging medical malpractice, professional liability, labor law violations, product liability, civil rights violations and personal injury. We believe our longevity is a testament to our manner of practice. We care for our clients. We are aggressive in litigating defensible cases and are respected as skilled trial lawyers. We also have a highly regarded appellate practice. On the other hand, when a matter should be settled we bring years of experience to the negotiation table and can often close liability matters at a minimum in settlement payment and litigation costs.

Our clients never lack knowledge about the status of their matters. We pride ourselves on open lines of communication in many forms. Reports are issued in timely fashion, inquiries are answered promptly and our attorneys are always available by e-mail or telephone. We value close working relationships with our clients.

Every attorney at Garbarini and Scher maintains an active caseload and oversees the day-to-day conduct of those cases. We only hire attorneys who are seasoned litigators. This allows our clients to be assured that any attorney handling a matter has years of experience in civil litigation. In addition, all cases are supervised by a senior partner who monitors the status and strategy of any particular case under his or her auspices.

Finally, we understand the expense of litigation and charge competitive rates for our work. Our commitment is to provide affordable and quality legal services to our clients that ensure their satisfaction.
