 Mr. Filiberto is also an experienced litigator with significant Court experience in jury and non jury trials.

While there is a very structured set of procedures in the litigation process, those procedures can change with the twists and turns of a case, and change in ways you don’t anticipate. Good litigators are prepared, and not easily rattled by the unexpected. For many lawyers and clients, it is their goal not to go to trial. In fact, most issues filed in court conclude in settlement. Once in the courtroom, however, a lawyer who is a litigator is crucial to the success of any case. A litigator, such as Mr. Filiberto, has a refined skill set combining oratory skills with legal analysis and cross examination skill, all gauged to convince a judge and/or a jury of his client’s position.

 If you have a matter you feel may need a litigator, or if you find it smart to start with a lawyer that has the skill set to litigate your case if necessary, don’t hesitate to call today.

Mr. Filiberto also consults with the profession on Mental Hygiene Law matters, Grievance matters, CPL 330.20 matters and represents both clients and the profession in Legal Fee Dispute Arbitrations.​
