Verdicts & Settlements


Scaffidi & Associates was founded in 1985 on the simple yet vital principle: that everyone, regardless of circumstance, is entitled to equal justice under the law. Mr. Scaffidi began the firm after spending nearly a decade at a prestigious Manhattan defense firm, representing physicians and corporate defendants and trying their most serious cases. For more than three decades, the firm has succeeded in leveling the playing field in many legal areas by providing our clients with strong, tireless advocates and the same access to high-powered, quality litigators as those enjoyed by the defendants and their insurance carriers. Over that time, the firm has expanded its practice by utilizing their skills in the courtroom and the negotiating table to represent corporate, commercial, and residential clients, bringing that same level of commitment and zeal that brought the outstanding results for which they have come to be known.


At Scaffidi & Associates, we have a proven record of success and a well-deserved reputation for fighting for our clients every step of the way.

We have always believed that everyone is entitled to equal justice under the law and so we tirelessly dedicate ourselves to protecting the rights of our clients. For our transactional, business, trust & estate, and real estate clients, we fully understand that navigating the legal system can be complicated and confusing. We take the stress out of the process by explaining the various options and helping our clients achieve positive results.

The attorneys and staff at Scaffidi & Associates utilize leading technological advances in the office, in the courtroom, and on the road to achieve continued success for our clients. The hub for our technology-based system is our case management software, which incorporates cloud-based document storage (with enterprise-grade encrypted security) that allows our attorneys immediate access to case files from anywhere in the world, and a client portal that provides direct and secure communication and document transfer, via the web or mobile app, among our clients, attorneys, and staff.

In addition, with advances in e-signature capabilities, many of our clients, from Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan, or Staten Island, and out on Long Island, or in Westchester, Rockland, and Orange Counties, are now able to sign and return documents and contracts from the comfort of their home or office, using just a computer or mobile device, without the need to make a special trip to our office. In the courtroom, our trial presentation software allows for cutting edge presentation of evidence to the Judge and jury, an important tool in helping them to understand otherwise complex medical and evidentiary issues. The firm remains at the forefront of technology as it relates to the practice of law, and we are driven to provide the best possible representation for all our clients.

Regardless of the size of a case, we treat each client with dignity and respect and provide them with caring, efficient service. We handle the details of every matter so that our clients can focus on their day-to-day lives.

Above all, our mission is to deliver a satisfying client experience.
