Scaffidi & Associates was founded in 1985 on the simple yet vital principal 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 by providing innocent victims 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 both 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.

For our transactional, business, trust, and real estate clients, we fully understand that navigating the legal system can be complicated and confusing.
