New York Trial Attorneys Helping Victims of Personal Injury and More
Dupée & Monroe, P.C. is a law firm focused on personal injury, civil litigation, civil rights and criminal defense in the Hudson Valley region and New York City. Our firm has been serving Orange County and surrounding areas for decades, and our attorneys have over 40 years of combined experience in litigation.
Our mid-Hudson Valley office location in Goshen – the county seat of Orange County – gives us easy access to Orange County courts as well as New York City and trial and appellate courts throughout the entire Hudson Valley area. We also have attorneys admitted to practice in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and take cases in those states as well.
A Focus on Litigation
Some people, even though they have been injured in an auto accident or construction accident, or had their rights violated, are still reluctant to sue another individual or company in court. They may be worried about the cost or they may be intimidated by the judicial process, which is often unknown or unfamiliar to them. Others may feel that they are working well with the insurance company and trust the insurer to treat them fairly and take care of them.
It is very important to understand that when you have a claim against an insurance company, whether it is your own carrier or the other party’s, your interests and the insurer’s are at odds with each other. Insurance companies are in business to maximize their profits. The insurance company has an incentive to pay as little as possible on a claim or even to deny it altogether if possible. Our job is to represent your interests and your interests alone.
While it is true that we are trial attorneys, that does not mean that we never settle a case. The fact is that the majority of our cases do settle before trial, but filing a lawsuit and preparing for litigation is quite often the best way of achieving a satisfactory result. When we go up against the insurance companies, they know that we can and do take cases to trial and have a record of success winning cases in court. Our reputation as successful trial attorneys makes the carriers more inclined to offer a fair amount rather than risk a trial.
