Our Mission

We have the resources to give your case the time and energy it deserves. We never pressure clients into accepting bad settlement offers. We are prepared to do whatever it takes to secure a maximum recovery for you!

Practice Areas

Personal Injury

For someone who is unfamiliar with the area of personal injury law, it can be a confusing subject. What are the statutes of limitations on the various types of personal injury cases and how to those change if it is a case brought against the government? Should I give any information to the insurance company or discuss the case in any way? The area of personal injury law can be a minefield that is impossible to navigate if you don’t have experienced professionals on your side.

Construction Accidents

At Sgarlato and Sgarlato, we have years of experience in handling a variety of Staten Island personal injury cases. We have the expertise you need to get the best possible results for your case. Whether your case involves a government entity or a private individual, you need to contact the expert Staten Island Personal Injury Lawyers at Sgarlato and Sgarlato because time is not on your side in a personal injury case.

Medical Malpractice

If there is one person people trust implicitly outside of their own family members it is their doctor. When that doctor recommends their patient go see a specialist, that patient also trusts the specialist implicitly. When a doctor violates that trust, it can be emotionally devastating for the patient. But more than that, it can also be fatal.

Legal Malpractice

It takes a special kind of law firm to be the legal malpractice attorney Staten Island residents and business professionals count on. But for many years now, Sgarlato and Sgarlato has been the legal malpractice lawyer Staten Island clients have been counting for honest and comprehensive representation.

Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are among the most common personal injury cases in the U.S. They can occur when fluids or ice cover the ground where people walk on. Slip and fall accidents can cause injuries to the back of the head, neck, and back. These injuries can be severe and can affect the overall quality of life.

Trip & Fall Accidents

Trip and fall accidents can occur due to uneven surfaces or objects on the floor. Broken sidewalks or poorly placed objects on the floor can cause a trip and fall that can lead to injuries to the front of the head or face, hands, arms, or elbows. These injuries could be severe and could affect someone’s overall quality of life.


Auto Accidents

Each year, around 1,000 people die due to an auto accident here in New York. Many more face an accident which leads to severe and lasting bodily injuries. Experiencing an injury due to an auto accident may cause a lot of pain, suffering, and confusion. Insurance companies can be unfair and your quality of life could be considerably affected.
