Residential Property Owner Defense Attorneys Serving New York City and the Surrounding Areas


Professionalism and Experience in Handling Residential Premises Liability Cases

Homeowners and owners of multiple dwellings face liability lawsuits when someone is injured on their properties. Property owners are required to maintain their properties in a reasonably safe condition and up to code, and many accomplish this. When an accident occurs and a plaintiff brings a personal injury claim, property owners need solid legal representation.

At the law firm of Jeffrey Samel & Partners, our New York City-based lawyers have over 30 years of experience in defending residential property owners against frivolous lawsuits brought against them because of the perception that they or their insurance carriers will provide compensation regardless of fault or harm done. We have defended owners of many different types of residential properties, including:

  • Single-family homes
  • Duplexes
  • Apartment complexes
  • Condominium buildings
  • Cooperative buildings

Lawyers for Clients With Apartment Buildings and Condominiums in Westchester County and Long Island

Single-family homes are subject to different laws than multiple dwellings and our attorneys understand these differences.

Our goal is to resolve our clients’ lawsuits as quickly, efficiently, and inexpensively as possible. When there are legitimate claims of liability, we use alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, such as direct negotiation or mediation, to resolve cases with a minimum of inconvenience and expense. If this is not an option, our attorneys build solid defenses based on facts and legal precedent to counter the emotional triggers many plaintiffs’ lawyers routinely utilize in their pursuit of undeserved compensation.

We have represented residential property owners in cases involving these and many other issues:

  • Dog bites
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Snow and ice
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Missing or defective handrails
  • Uneven carpeting, mats or other surfaces
  • Inadequate security
  • Violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

We have achieved many successful verdicts and work repeatedly with many clients who are pleased and impressed with our excellent representation and quality service.
