Practice Areas

Professional Liability Defense

For more than thirty years, Widowski Law Group attorneys have successfully represented physicians, psychologists, nurses, dentists and oral surgeons, hospitals, and laboratories in high exposure malpractice actions and wrongful death cases in state and federal courts, including a long track record of successful verdicts and appeals. We have extensive experience defending catastrophic injury claims such as blindness, neurological injuries, HIV/AIDS, cancer, anoxic brain injuries, paralysis, obstetrical and gynecological injuries, and complications of bariatric, renal, urologic, ophthalmic, orthopedic, cardiac, and plastic surgery. We represented physicians and hospitals in federal Multi-District litigation involving drugs and medical products (Vioxx, Medtronic implantable cardiodefibrillators, and silicone breast implants). We currently represent multiple parties in Byetta and Januvia lawsuits, including the federal Incretin-Based Therapies Products Liability Litigation. We counsel clients regarding product recalls such as orthopedic implants. We are sensitive to the needs of physician clients, and understand the effect of lawsuits and trials on their practices; that is why we aggressively seek early dismissal of cases. We have obtained dismissal of many cases outright, before trial, with aggressive use of pre-trial summary judgment motions. Please refer to the “Developments” section of this website for recent decisions and verdicts.

In addition to representing healthcare professionals, we also have decades of experience in litigating other professional liability claims, including directors, officers, accountants, financial professionals, and attorney malpractice cases.

General Liability Defense

Our attorneys have broad experience representing insurers, property owners, and municipalities in the defense of personal injury claims, as well as Labor Law, construction, premises security, and intentional tort actions. From escalator and elevator hazards, to employment claims and civil rights cases, Widowski Law Group attorneys provide creative, proactive defense solutions from discovery through trial.


Professional Licensing and Discipline

Our attorneys have represented many physicians before the Office of Professional Medical Conduct and in government investigations, as well as psychologists, dentists and oral surgeons before the Office of Professional Discipline. We fully appreciate the implications of these investigations on a physician’s career and livelihood. We have access to experts in every medical specialty, assuring our ability to present the strongest possible defense. We work closely with our clients to navigate the entire process from initial notice of investigation, through interviews, hearings, and any appeals.

Commercial Litigation

For decades, we have represented the FDIC in its corporate and receivership capacities, as well as directors and officers, attorneys and accountants. We represent public companies, individuals, and closely held corporations in real estate litigation, construction litigation, unfair trade practice matters, employment matters, federal civil rights claims, and breach of contract actions. We regularly litigate in the Commercial Division of New York Supreme Court. We are uniquely qualified to provide quality legal representation at a reasonable cost, with a level of personal attention only available at a firm of our size.

Real Estate

We represent owners, developers, and tenants in all aspects of sophisticated real estate transactions including acquisitions, dispositions, development, finance, workouts, and leasing. Our clients include public and private companies, government entities, and high net worth individuals.

Compliance and Governance

We have more than thirty years of experience advising public and private companies on corporate compliance and governance, internal investigations, litigation management (including supervision of outside counsel), and enterprise risk management.
