Karpinski, Stapleton, Galbato & Tehan, P.C., provides quality and cost-effective attorney representation of individuals and businesses in pre-litigation negotiation and in-court litigation of lawsuits. Our client’s best interest directs our approach as litigation can be stressful, costly, and time-consuming. Therefore, negotiation, legwork and cost-management are just as important as courtroom skills in making sure that a lawsuit doesn’t burden your life or your business.

However, some disputes cannot be settled or fairly resolved without the intervention of a court or other third party. We handle general civil litigation matters in all New York State and Federal trial and appellate courts, as well as alternative forums such as arbitration and mediation.

We have considerable litigation experience in Contract Disputes, Business Disputes, Commercial Leasing Disputes, Real Estate and Land Disputes, Tax Assessments, Land Use and Zoning issues and Public Sector matters. Further, we are experienced in Estate Litigation in Surrogate’s Court related to will contests, trust disputes, beneficiary claims, fiduciary liability claims, estate and trust mismanagement, and probate matters.
