Is your office currently open during normal business hours?

As of March 22, 2020, our physical office in Melvillle, New York is not open, in accordance Governor Cuomo's Executive Order that all non-essential businesses close. But, our staff and attorneys are working from home and have full access to computer systems, files, email, and phones. We continue to provide all our regular legal services. For Covid-19 related services we can assist with, please visit our Covid-19 legal services page.

Are courts of law still open in my area? Will my court date be rescheduled? What if I can’t come to court because I’m sick or quarantined?

State courts are closed. Federal courts are open, but operating with restrictions. No in-person conferences are taking place in any Court in New York (with some exceptions likely not applicable to your case). Most cases and deadlines, including New York's statute of limitations, have been put off. For issues related to your case specifically, please contact us.

Will scheduled depositions, mediation, arbitration, or settlement negotiations occur as planned?

Most scheduled dates are adjourned. Expect that any date of which you are aware, has been adjourned. We will advise you if there is an upcoming date or deadline which has not been adjourned.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
From my personal experience, Matthew Weinick has always managed to go above and beyond as an attorney. While handling my case, he was very professional, supportive and reassuring. It was easy to see his devotion in bringing me justice from day one. I saw how invested he was which motivated me to take the stand and fight for my rights. I am extremely grateful that he agreed to take on my case and I could not have asked for better legal representation or consult. Ariel Kaygisiz

Matt Weinick is an excellent attorney. With his assistance I was able to get exonerated from false allegations against me. Sara
★★★★★
Mr. Weinick is the utmost professional. I called him for help with an employment issue and I was in his office the next day for a free, almost hour long, consultation. I ultimately retained him for his services and his professionalism continued, he is extremely talented and well versed in employment law and he answers emails immediately, he even emailed me a few times to check on how things were progressing. I cannot thank Mr. Weinick enough for his help, and I wouldn't hesitate to call him again if necessary. Hopefully there will be no need, but in today's employment landscape you never know. Thanks again. Tom Orlik
