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.

We have had a great partnership with Smith, Sovik and, in particular, Steve Williams. Steve has delivered great results for us not only in Litigation, but also in handling EEOC charges as well as mediations and arbitrations which are a part of our Dispute Resolution Process. Steve is an extremely talented litigator; however, he also works hard to attain good settlements for us. His case evaluations are thorough and honest. It has been a pleasure working with Steve and I look forward to continuing our partnership.
