Legal and Professional Liability

Smith Sovik defends legal malpractice claims for lawyers and law firms all over New York State. In fact, many of our opponents turn to us if they are sued – which we consider to be one of our highest compliments.

Our firm also defends architects, engineers, accountants and other professionals against malpractice claims and lawsuits.  We’ve had the privilege of defending professional malpractice claims for CNA, Liberty International, Argo, AIG, Travelers and numerous other insurers.

I cannot recommend Deb Salvi (or Smith Sovik) more highly. Deb proactively handles her files and provides thorough reporting in a timely manner. She is an excellent negotiator whether she is in a mediation or handling settlement negotiations directly. Deb’s experience handling all types of cases is demonstrated in the amazing results she obtains. Deb is simply the best.
