Erlanger Law Firm typically handles lawsuits and represents people (plaintiffs) who have suffered damage from the conduct of others, whether through faulty products or dangerous/hazardous conditions. The injuries typically occur at construction sites, commercial buildings, home and work, and on city streets. We represent Executors of Estates (more than $1 million) in probate proceedings in New York City Surrogate’s Courts. And the Firm represents people whose reputations have been damaged (libel and slander) or civil rights have been violated or who are involved in disputes over contracts

From the moment you become our client, we will resolve your matter timely and cost-efficiently. The Firm accepts no matter unless we are prepared to bring it to a trial before a jury, if necessary. At all times, your goals and needs are our very highest priority.

The Firm’s strength is effective and personal representation. Our attorneys meet each potential client. Once you become a Firm client, only attorneys will communicate with you. Any client who has a lawsuit should be able to find out and understand what is going on with his or her case, at any time during the case, and be able to see case documents. The Firm commits that it will timely respond to your emails or calls.

If, after consulting with the Firm, you have a matter that is not within one of our practice areas, we will assist you in finding an attorney with the proper specialty.
