Protecting Personal,
Civil and Consumer Rights

Williams Cuker Berezofsky’s clients are the victims of individual, corporate and governmental wrongs. The firm represents plaintiffs in complex litigation, ranging from environmental and “toxic tort” cases to medical product cases; from negligence cases to actions for false arrest or sexual harassment.

In particular, we have devoted our practice to protecting:

People who are harmed by environmental contamination, exposed to toxic chemicals at home or at work, harmed by pharmaceutical or medical products, or injured in accidents; and

People who are victimized by discrimination or harassment, denied their right to privacy, penalized for whistleblowing, or subject to police misconduct or false arrest; and

People who are deceived by consumer fraud and unfair business practices, or wronged in a managed care or HMO dispute.

At Williams Cuker Berezofsky, we are dedicated to helping our clients attain the safety, security and compensation that they deserve.
