Malapero & Prisco LLP has extensive experience in the defense of Labor Law and construction accident litigation, insurance coverage, general insurance defense including motor vehicle, premises liability and products liability, property damage/subrogation and Workers' Compensation defense services.

Legal Expertise in New York and New Jersey

Malapero & Prisco LLP offers its legal services in the five boroughs of New York City, as well as Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess and Orange Counties, the Federal Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the State and Federal Courts of New Jersey, and the United States Supreme Court.

Each of our partners has over twenty-five years of litigation experience. Our seasoned associates are fully versed in trial practice, alternative dispute resolution, administrative hearings and appellate procedure. Our paralegal staff is skilled in trial preparation and file management.

Defense Strategy

As a foundation to building successful relationships we strive to establish a sound tripartite partnership between the firm, our clients, and the claims professionals. We are dedicated to the early formulation of a defense strategy in concert with the client and the claims professional. Each case is assessed by a partner and an initial defense strategy is developed within thirty days.

Malapero & Prisco LLP realizes litigation costs are a prime concern to clients. We offer a range of tested, cost-effective strategies, which are tailored to each client's needs. We attempt to resolve disputes in a manner which is practical and efficient from a business as well as a legal perspective. We aggressively pursue early evaluation and settlement where appropriate on a cost-of-defense basis. If litigation is required, we will work with the client to determine the process best suited to their needs, be it motion practice, negotiation, mediation, or taking a case to trial.

Billing

Our practice is conducted in accordance with the Recommended Case Handling Guidelines for Insurers, as promulgated by The Defense Research Institute. We have the flexibility to coordinate billing with all electronic billing formats. Our billing conforms to the Uniform Task Based Management System as required. Billing cycles are tailored to meet the individual needs of our clients.

    I have known Joe professionally for about 25 years. He is an excellent attorney, who zealously represents his clients within all ethical boundaries, while remaining fair to his adversaries. He is well-respected by his peers. Joe is also one of the most intelligent attorneys I know, yet he remains humble in all of his accomplishments.

    I have not had a great deal of experience with Jennine. During the pendency of the cases we have handled together I find her to be knowledgeable, interested in obtaining the most favorable outcome for her client and reasonable. She has never given me reason to think she would do anything that was not well within the ethical bounds of her practice. She is pleasant and competent.
