Practice Areas

Motor Vehicle Liability

Our firm represents corporations, businesses, and individuals in motor vehicle accident claims involving serious injuries and fatalities.  Our familiarity with motor vehicle and commercial vehicle No-Fault laws and coverage issues allows us to chart a clear course and strategy for our clients.  Our firm's partners have successfully tried cases to verdict and have handled appeals establishing new legal precedents protecting our clients' interests.  We serve as panel counsel for several insurers, government agencies, and third-party administrators.

Premises Liability

We represent property owners, businesses, and individuals on premises liability claims and lawsuits.  We have obtained favorable determinations for our clients for conditions that were minimal, open and obvious, or unreported. 

In addition to general tort liability claims, we have expertise representing commercial entities in local, state, and federal court for claims of discrimination under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and equivalent local and state statutes.

Commercial Litigation

The attorneys at Johnson Liebman, LLP are experienced litigators and have favorably resolved contract disputes arising from nonpayment, failure to provide services, and other forms of contract breach.  We work with our clients in the first instance to prepare valid and enforceable contracts in order to prevent future litigation.  However, in those unfortunate circumstances where contractual obligations are not met, we are committed to assisting our clients in successfully recovering monies or obtaining non-monetary remedies, such as specific performance or injunctive relief. 

Real Estate
The New York real estate market is dynamic and evolving. We have represented foreign governments in embassy purchases, corporate clients, and individuals in negotiating contracts for acquisitions or sales of commercial and residential properties. We have assisted various brokers and their clients in the successful negotiation of bar, restaurant, commercial and residential leases throughout New York City. We are conscious of each client’s bottom-line and ensure cost effective, streamlined representation leading to expedited closings, which is the reason we are the preferred counsel for many brokers, businesses and landlords throughout New York.

Wills & Estate Planning

We have assisted various clients in the planning of their Estate, including the preparation of Last Wills, Living Wills, Health Care Proxies, and Power of Attorney documents.  We have also represented clients in probate proceedings, including petitioning the court for letters of administration, executing small estate affidavits, and litigating probate disputes.  On the occasions when estate matters have become contentious, we have litigated such claims and always seek a resolution that does not overtax the estate assets or family relationships.  We appreciate what is most important to our client during these challenging times.

Coverage Issues

Cases involving insurance coverage issues require specialized knowledge and sophisticated strategies.  We have successfully litigated various coverage issues on behalf of our corporate and individual clients.  Our partners’ in-house insurance experience greatly assists our clients in the preservation and recovery of assets.  Allow us to review your claims and advise how we can assist you in the protection or recovery of assets.
