Civil Litigation

We handle civil litigation from pre-pleading investigation through post-judgment enforcement proceedings.
We periodically collaborate with lawyers and law firms on an of-counsel basis to handle specific aspects of litigated cases, such as briefing or arguing appeals or motions, drafting pleadings, or appearing in court.

Appeals and Major Motions 

We brief and argue appeals and major motions in civil and criminal cases. 
For example, we were recently engaged by another law firm to brief a trial-level motion in federal district court in the Eastern District of New York to challenge the constitutionality of a special condition of probation which was imposed upon a criminal defendant who pled guilty.  We challenged the condition on First Amendment and Due Process grounds.  We succeeded in getting the condition struck as unconstitutional.

As other examples of the wide range of issues we have addressed, we have briefed and argued contract issues relating to leases, guaranties of payment, statutory interpretations, estate and trust issues, medical malpractice issues, open default motions, "Blakely" issues (on the questions relating to the constitutionality of criminal sentences imposed under the United States Sentencing Guidelines, in the wake of the United States Supreme Court's June 2004 decision, Blakely v. Washington)

Our experience in appeals and motion practice includes working for judges in both federal and state courts. 
Allan Pearlman is a former Staff Attorney for the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. 
He is also a former Senior Court Attorney for the New York State Supreme Court in New York County, at the historic courthouse at 60 Centre Street in Manhattan. 

In both Courts he researched legal issues on appeals and motions that the judges needed to decide. He advised the judges for whom he worked on the applicable law land how it applied to the case at hand.
