Dear Valued Clients and Friends,

In light of the Executive Orders issued on March 20,2020 by Governor Cuomo (NY) and on March 21,2020 by Governor Murphy (NJ) we at Lester Schwab Katz & Dwyer LLP want to assure you that we are working remotely and will remain fully operational throughout the duration of this public health crisis. Until further notice, the most effective methods of communicating with us are email or phone, not the US mail. In the event that you need wire instructions or have accounting questions, please contact David Glicksman by email at Our hope is that this crisis will not be long. Regardless of its duration, however, we will continue to provide our clients with uninterrupted service. Your support, friendship and trust are so important to us as we get through this trying time together. We wish you all good health for you and your families.

LSKD attorneys have particular expertise in defending personal injury claims arising out of marine construction and other harbor work. We successfully argued to the New York Court of Appeals in Lee v. Astoria Generating Co., that New York’s plaintiff-friendly Labor Law was preempted by the federal Longshore Act in suits against vessel owners. LSKD attorneys also have particular expertise in maritime product liability cases in which the firm’s experience in working with nationally known experts can be dispositive.

Over the years, LSKD attorneys have:
