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.

Kristin Norfleet is our primary outside counsel for our general liability claims in New York because she understands our business objectives and uses her legal expertise to advocate for Carrols in a manner consistent with our objectives.  Kristin has an excellent base of legal and business knowledge, and she works well with opposing counsel, courts and our carriers. Kristin has provided Carrols with excellent legal representation and working with her is a pleasure.
