Helping those in need obtain the
justice they deserve.

Two decades ago, Steven Palermo began his legal practice with one objective: to help those in need obtain the justice they deserve. It was not long before he was taking on huge corporations and billion-dollar insurance companies, fighting for just that.

Early on, he learned that the field of personal injury law was one that required laser focus – it was the only way to navigate the huge companies who viewed his clients as nothing but a number on a page, but had seemingly limitless resources to fight against paying them what they deserved. Steven has since devoted all his efforts to the aggressive practice of personal injury litigation, and it is a strategy that works. He has helped hundreds of clients regain their lives after devastating personal injuries.

The Law Firm That You Hire Matters

If you are injured you will have a choice of many different law firms. But not all lawyers are equal. There are various skill levels and styles among the different lawyers out there. Some smaller law firms operate as a general law practice meaning your lawyer may not only be handling personal injury law, but they will also be handling various types of other cases such as family law cases, real estate closings, and criminal law cases. We feel it’s always better to find a lawyer that concentrates on personal injury law. There is an immense amount of information to understand in any one area of law. Injury law is no different. That’s why our Riverhead injury lawyers only handle personal injury cases.

Some of the bigger national firms you see on TV are available in our area. These firms generally have offices in more central locations such as New York City. They are not as convenient as our firm which is located right here in Riverhead and their lawyers may not have the same level of experience in the courts of our County. Further, these firms often employ numerous lawyers and you never know who will be representing you from day to day. At our firm, you will always have the same lawyer and every time you call, the person on the other end of the phone will be familiar with your situation.

Trusted Personal Injury Lawyers in Riverhead, NY

We don’t just take cases and wait for the phone to ring with a settlement offer. We aggressively investigate and then litigate your case in court. It is the only way we know of to get an insurance company to treat you fairly and offer full compensation for your injuries. If an insurer thinks that your attorneys are not ready for trial, they will never offer you full and fair compensation. That’s why every case we handle is fully prepared as though it is going to trial even though the vast majority of claims will settle without a trial. It’s this trial-ready strategy that allows our Riverhead personal injury lawyers to get the results that we get.
