    Kevin was invaluable in helping me finally obtain a settlement, where my previous attorney completely failed through inaction. Kevin possesses all of the assets necessary for success; knowledge and skill, but also honor, dignity, sincerity and a dedication to the client's case. What I appreciate most was that Kevin always contacted me until the case was settled, even after the settlement, and always returned my calls. I cannot believe my good fortune in finding the him to represent my claim. I highly recommend Kevin to anyone who is looking for an attorney a cut above the rest.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

At Black, Lyle & Habberfield, LLP we limit our practice to handling personal injury cases in New York and Pennsylvania.  Our attorneys and staff have all been intensively trained in these cases and can  provide you with the best results possible.

In addition to our qualified and experienced paralegals and secretarial staff, we employ nurses and an investigator to help handle the issues that arise in personal injury litigation.  To assist the attorneys in working through the sometimes difficult process of determining how and why an incident or injury occurred we employ a full-time investigator.  In addition, the medical aspects of our clients’ cases can be quite complex so we also have two Registered Nurses on staff to aid both the attorneys and our clients with their understanding of the injuries suffered.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Ask a friend, family member or similar professional in the business for a referral. Advertisements on TV, Radio and the Internet are fine but, a referral from someone you trust is by far the best way to go.
