Does your firm only work with clients who are located on Long Island?

My family member is homebound; do you meet with clients in their homes?
Yes, we do. We know that it can be difficult for some people to leave their home, so we are happy to schedule consultations outside of the office.
I live in Connecticut, may I use your firm?
Unfortunately, no. In order to practice law in a neighboring state, an attorney must obtain separate license to practice in that state. Our firm currently has attorneys who are licensed in New York and New Jersey. However, our firm has a network of attorneys who we can refer you to in every state.
