New York Appellate Attorneys

Fighting for clients involves being prepared to take appeals when there are adverse decisions which affect the client. Over the years The Fitzgerald Law Firms have perfected many appeals and won hard-fought victories at the appellate level.

In Henry v. City of New York, The Fitzgerald Law Firms’ appellate counsel convinced the Court of Appeals to unanimously reverse a decision of the Appellate Division, 2nd Department. Because of this case, the statute of limitations for infants is tolled until they reach majority or age 18.

Lugo v. LJN Toys, Ltd., another Court of Appeals case, is the seminal case on toy safety in the State of New York. The Fitzgerald Law Firms’ appellate counsel successfully argued this case before New York’s highest appellate court.  The court held that the manufacturer could be held liable for the injury to a child when the specimen shield of “Voltron – protector of the universe” was thrown by another child.

In Gomez v. New York City Housing Authority, The Fitzgerald Law Firms’ New York appellate attorneys were able to successfully convince the Court of Appeals to reverse the decision of the Appellate Division, 1st Department. As a result, plaintiffs in a premises security case can prove that the assailant was an intruder by circumstantial evidence.
