Port Jefferson, Long Island Civil Litigation Attorney


At the Law Office of Richard J. Kaufman, we provide legal representation for plaintiffs and defendants throughout Suffolk and Nassau Counties in many types of civil litigation matters. Thanks to Mr. Kaufman’s more than 32 years as a Suffolk County litigation attorney, we maintain a high success rate in both prosecuting and defending civil litigation cases which have included commercial litigation, real estate litigation, contract litigation, tort litigation, estate litigation and FINRA litigation, among other general litigation matters. Our results reflect such a high success rate in both prosecuting and defending cases that oftentimes have been referred to our office by our colleagues.

Mr. Kaufman has litigated matters involving millions of dollars, and disputes involving more than one hundred million dollars, including business transactions, white-collar crimes, trust matters and corporate shareholder litigation. Mr. Kaufman has litigated against billion-dollar corporations, insurance and financial institutions, individuals and local and state governments.

At the Law Office of Richard J. Kaufman, we realize that keeping a client abreast of the strategy and decision-making process relating to litigation is the key to building a successful claim or defense. Clients not only get involved in the substance of the matter but also, most importantly, the budgeting and risk/benefit analysis which is of the utmost importance to a client’s bottom line.

The Law Office of Richard J. Kaufman prides itself on practicing preventive and non-litigation measures. Utilizing Mr. Kaufman’s broad transactional experience, every attempt is made to coordinate practical considerations in the drafting of agreements and contracts so as to minimize the possibility that future litigation will occur or the severity of its effects if it does. Thus, inclusion of alternative dispute resolution clauses are recommended and the use of such alternatives as arbitration or mediation are employed where appropriate. Likewise, the ability to skillfully negotiate is viewed as a powerful tool on behalf of the client.

However, if events require, our office is willing to forcefully litigate the matter and has the ability and experience to take the case through trial to the appellate process as necessary, with each step consulting with the client as to strategy and taking into account the efficiencies and costs.
