Litigation, Trials & Appeals

Long Island Law Firm: Litigation, Trials and Appeals

At Campolo, Middleton & McCormick we believe that the most effective way to negotiate on your behalf is to always be prepared to go to trial. We will immediately develop a targeted, strategic approach to your case and will individually handle your matter from inception through trial and appeal. Our attorneys have substantial trial experience in complex commercial and business litigation, federal, state and local courts, including Delaware Chancery Court and Delaware Supreme Court, as well as before state and federal regulatory agencies, representing individuals, businesses and municipalities in a vast array of legal matters.

Campolo, Middleton & McCormick’s attorneys have significant appellate experience, handling hundreds of appeals and oral arguments in both State and Federal Courts, from the Appellate Divisions to the New York State Court of Appeals and the United States Second Circuit Court of Appeals. We recognize that results achieved early in a case by motion practice or later at trial are only worthwhile if they can be upheld on appeal. We have the experience to successfully handle a matter through appeal.
