You have a legal need. We have a solution. That is the great thing about being a full service law firm. No matter your concern, we can take care of you. At Stenger, Roberts, Davis & Diamond, LLP, we are small enough that we can give you the personal attention that you deserve. You don’t—under any circumstances—ever want to be treated like just another number. You are a person, and your case is unique. But we are large enough to bring a diverse group of talents to your case. You want a firm who will tailor its strategies to your needs, rather than approaching your case as if it fits into a template. Our dedicated team of attorneys draws its strength from working together to support each individual case.
When you have a serious legal issue, you need a law firm that has the resources and capabilities to competently handle your case, no matter the legal dispute. We rely on each other to build the strongest case possible—every single time. While you will have one attorney who is in charge of your case, all of our lawyers will be involved in some way or another. We believe strongly in the team approach. We all want to help you.
We have two offices in the Hudson Valley region of New York, conveniently located only 25 minutes from each other: one in Wappingers Falls and one in Poughkeepsie. We are 13 attorneys strong, each with different areas of expertise. This means we are accessible when you need us most. We practice in the following areas: personal injury, elder and estate law, family law, litigation, real estate, business law, and criminal/DWI defense. Call us today to speak with an attorney to find out how we can help you.
Have you been injured in an accident?
Life throws a lot of unexpected things our way, and when it does, you need a strong team behind you who will go to bat for you. Our personal injury attorneys represent people who have been injured, whether it is due to a car accident, truck or bus accident, motorcycle accident, medical malpractice, construction accident, or slip and fall. We also represent families who have been left behind after a wrongful death. We will defend your rights when others try to deny you of them. Insurance companies, trucking companies, medical giants, or other big-time corporations—they do not have your best interest at heart. We do. And we will get to work immediately, collecting and investigating evidence, interviewing witnesses, and preparing the strongest case offense for you and your case. Whether we settle or take your case to trial, we will be ready.
Are you considering getting a divorce?
If you are contemplating getting a divorce, there are many things to consider before you make your final decision. A divorce is not something to be taken lightly. You will need to sit down and take a long, hard look at your financial situation now and what it will look like in the future. You may think that a divorce is the best and only option for you, but an experienced divorce attorney can help you to identify your best course of action. There may be another option that suits your particular needs better, such as a legal separation.
Children add another set of issues to the picture. What will happen to them? With whom will they live? How will you support them financially? You have many questions; we have many answers. We will sit down with you and develop a plan for child support, custody, visitation rights, alimony (known as maintenance in New York), and property division. When it comes to developing a legal plan of action, we advise and you guide. We will always take into consideration your unique needs. We truly work for you.
Are you or a loved one in need of nursing home or other long term care planning?
As your loved ones age, they often become increasingly dependent upon you, and as your own life gets busier and busier, finding time to take care of them becomes harder and harder. It is essential that you begin thinking about what will happen to them and who will take care of them if you can no longer do so. More and more, people are entrusting their family members and dear friends to nursing homes for the care that they need. Unfortunately, this service comes at an exorbitant price, costing more than $10,000 a month in many homes in the state of New York. In-home care is another option that can be expensive. You need an attorney who is experienced in nursing home planning strategies that will preserve your family’s wealth as best as possible.
Have you planned for the future of your estate? Have you protected your assets?
Planning for the future is an essential part of growing up or growing old. The more prepared you are for the unexpected, the better you will be in the long run. At Stenger, Roberts, Davis & Diamond, LLP, we pride ourselves on our ability to thoroughly prepare a case so that we are ready for anything. We like to help our clients do the same. From trusts to wills to powers of attorney, our estate planning attorneys will determine the tools that are best for your unique situation so that your assets and family wealth are protected.
What is the civil litigation process?
We litigate cases in every aspect of our practice, but what does this mean? If we decide that your case should go to court, we will file a complaint through the New York courts in order to resolve a dispute. If you are sued, we will file an answer on your behalf and prepare an effective defensive case to protect your interests. For instance, let’s say your business has a dispute with another business or with a local municipality and you can’t resolve it. If the other party is refusing to cooperate, we may need to file a complaint through the court and therefore enter into the litigation process. This process will consist of the following stages: pleadings, discovery, trial, and potentially appeal. We will explain each step upfront, so that you know what to expect. If your case must go to trial, don’t attempt to go it alone. At Stenger, Roberts, Davis & Diamond, LLP, our litigation attorneys have made a science of preparation—which is just what you need as you face the rigors of the courtroom. Call us today to speak with an attorney about your particular legal need.
Our firm partners have been together for over 20 years. We therefore work together with the efficiency that can come only from an established system, refined through time. We have carefully selected each member of our team to best serve you and your needs. We are a team upon which you can depend.
