Practice Areas

Our attorneys at Smalline and Harri have been practicing law for more than 25 years. In an effort to best serve our community, we limit our law practice to the following types of cases:

Personal Injury:

Our experience representing victims of all types of personal injuries gives us the leverage to fight for the maximum compensation our clients deserve for their injuries. At Smalline and Harri we represent people suffering injuries from construction accidents and defective products and we fight to recover monetary damages for families whose loved ones have died as a result of someone else’s negligence. We seek additional services for children with special needs and disabilities and we have met with marked success representing clergy abuse cases. Contact us to speak with experienced attorneys who will go the distance to bring justice to your situation.

Brain Injuries:

Traumatic head injuries, whether outwardly apparent or hidden, are the serious results of many types of accidents. When these accidents are the result of someone else’s negligence, the New York brain injury attorneys at Smalline and Harri are here to help victims fight for compensation for their injuries.

Spinal Cord Injuries:

The back and spine are crucial to completing almost every movement or action throughout the day. When the spine is injured, the victim’s life may be significantly, negatively altered. Smalline and Harri‘s spine injury attorneys have the experience and skills to fight for the compensation needed to ease the stress of the injuries caused by a serious back injury.


Sometimes, marriages end. This can result in numerous legal complications, not to mention stress and heartbreak. At Smalline and Harri, our divorce attorney utilizes mediation and alternative dispute resolutions to guide you through your divorce with dignity as well as help you and your partner seek amicable resolutions that best serve your long term goals and the long term goals of your children (if any). Contact us for a more personal approach to divorce representation.

No-Fault Divorce:

New York has become the final state to officially adopt the no-fault divorce legislation, and the divorce attorneys at Smalline and Harri can help you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse settle financial and custodial issues without the pressure of proving fault.

Child Custody:

During a divorce, children are always greatly affected. When parents can not mutually decide how to divide custody of the children, our child custody attorneys can represent the interests of one of the parents as well as the children during mediation or a trial.


Bringing someone new into your family is a very joyous occasion. However, it can also be stressful because it involves significant legal issues. Our attorneys at Smalline and Harri would be honored to guide you through this uplifting time in the life of your family and provide legal counsel to ensure that your family is prepared for a new addition.

Automobile Accidents:

Our approach with regard to auto accidents is to truly understand what happened during your accident through eyewitness accounts and auto accident experts when needed. At Smalline and Harri, we take the time to understand the facts and we prepare every case as if it were going to trial. This has given us a solid reputation in the community for being tough auto accident litigators.

Truck Accidents:

Truck drivers must adhere to strict rules and regulations while on the road, but these rules are sometimes broken. Negligent truck drivers that do not follow the rules may cause devastating accidents which severely injure or kill other drivers. These drivers and their families deserve compensation for their suffering, and we will fight for them.

Motorcycle Accidents:

Motorcyclists have a distinct disadvantage on the road compared to other drivers due to the size of their vehicle. Because motorcycles are significantly smaller than cars, they are more difficult to see coming. This can result in a catastrophic accident and serious injuries to the motorcyclist. At Smalline and Harri, we have the experience and skills necessary to fight for the maximum compensation possible for a motorcyclist’s injuries.

Workplace Accidents:

Some jobs that millions of Americans perform daily can result in serious injury if the right safety precautions are not followed. At Smalline and Harri, we represent workers in third party liability actions that have been injured as a result of others’ negligence. In these cases, we thoroughly investigate what happened and build a trial-ready case on our client’s behalf.

Construction Accidents:

Construction is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. As such, many workers are injured on the job as a result of faulty equipment or another person’s negligence. We will fight for the maximum compensation possible beyond workers’ compensation for those injured on construction sites.

Premises Liability:

Sometimes people are harmed because a property owner or business owner did not maintain adequate safety (e.g. not providing adequate lighting, security, or snow removal). If you’ve been harmed because someone else was negligent by failing to act with proper care, contact us for professional personal injury representation.

Slip and Fall Accidents:

Property owners, residential and commercial, have an obligation to repair or warn their guests of potential hazards on their property. When they fail to do so and a guest is seriously injured after a slip and fall accident, the owner can be held liable. At Smalline and Harri, we are dedicated to fighting for the maximum compensation possible for personal injury victims.

Medical Malpractice:

Our extensive experience working with doctors and medical experts gives us greater insight into medical malpractice cases and provides us with a solid knowledge base when working with individuals injured as a result of medical malpractice.

Birth Injuries:

The birth of a child should be one of the happiest moments in a parent’s life. Unfortunately, some health care professionals fail to act upon warning signs of a distressed child, and birth injuries are the result. Our New York birth injury lawyers work tirelessly for compensation for the family of a child that suffered birth injuries as a result of a health care professional’s negligence.

Real Estate Law:

Buying and selling real estate can be very stressful to even the most seasoned seller or buyer. At Smalline and Harri, we want to help ease the stress and protect your rights during the transaction.
