What our firm can do for you
Our firm can handle a wide range of matters for you, your family, your business or your municipality. Practice areas include:
- Personal injury — We understand the stress and uncertainty that follows an injury. Our attorneys are constantly mindful of this when providing responsive and zealous personal injury representation for those injured through negligence of all types, including vehicle accidents, construction accidents, products liability, premises liability, medical malpractice, and hospital and nursing home negligence.
- Criminal law — While all criminal allegations are serious, we are very experienced in representing those charged with federal crimes, which tend to be more complex than comparable state crimes. Whether you are facing federal or state criminal charges, our experienced criminal defense attorneys know how to protect your rights, ensure a fair trial and seek the best result possible under the circumstances.
- DWI defense — A DWI can result in costly fines, loss of driving privileges and incarceration. Our attorneys work to minimize the potential legal penalties and damage to your future by building an aggressive defense in your case.
- Municipal law — Our attorneys have a very strong concentration in municipal law issues. We represent many governments and municipal boards, including defending governments and municipal officials in federal and state litigation. We also represent individuals and businesses that must appear before public boards on matters involving zoning, planning, land use and other municipal law issues.
- Civil litigation — Our civil litigation team takes on such challenging issues as civil rights defense, Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) claims, commercial law, construction law and personal injury litigation.
- Commercial law — Having served Orange County and Rockland County for more than three decades, we know the local business community, and the local business community knows us. Companies of all types and sizes throughout the area continue to rely on Burke, Miele & Golden to provide practical solutions for formation of companies, contracts, litigation and other commercial law needs.
- Construction law — During our more than 35-year history, and now located in Goshen and New City, Burke, Miele & Golden attorneys are well-known and well-versed in all areas of construction law, from bidding, contracts/subcontracts, and lien law, to the prosecution and defense of construction litigation in both federal and state courts.
