Trial Attorneys

The Graber Law Firm is regularly called upon by other attorneys to take over litigation matters which have reached the hearing or trial stage. Many attorneys take on disputes with an eye towards negotiation and settlement, but are uncomfortable continuing to handle the matter once it becomes clear that persuasive argument before a judge or jury will be necessary to achieve a great result. In fact, many attorneys have never picked a jury or argued before a judge. We are acutely aware of the stakes involved when going to trial. We always try and indentify opportunities for favorable settlement with an understanding that efficiency, expense and predictable results are important to our clients. However, when appropriate, we do not shy away from trial and will always be ready to win in court.

We have handled matters including:

  • Commercial litigation
  • Construction litigation
  • Breach of contract litigation
  • Real estate disputes
  • Business litigation
  • Preliminary injunctions and restraining orders
  • Breach of fiduciary duty claims
  • Administrative hearings
  • Article 78 proceedings
  • Partnership disputes
  • General contractor/subcontractor disputes
  • Class action defense
  • Employment, nondisclosure and noncompete litigation
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)/labor law litigation
  • Civil RICO
  • Mechanic’s liens
  • Shareholder oppression actions
  • Arbitration and mediation
  • Appeals in federal and New York State courts

The firm also engages in select transactional work, drawing on its litigation experience to draft strong agreements which proactively anticipate scrutiny in the event of a dispute which ends up in court, including commercial leases, general business agreements, construction and employment contracts.
