In his 30-plus years in practice, Greg Haegele has established himself as an outstanding trial lawyer and litigator, recognized as one of New York's best by the peer reviewed publication "Super Lawyers." He has successfully recovered millions of dollars for injured clients through negotiation and trial. During the Great Recession he tenaciously fought to prevent banks from foreclosing on homeowners, turning oppressive delinquent mortgages into healthy, affordable loans.

Mr. Haegele begins to prepare your case for trial on that very first consultation because he knows that the best resolution comes from being in a position of strength. He can direct you to excellent medical professionals to help you heal after an injury and demand that those responsible pay for the damage they caused. He is empathetic, personable and sincere, and clients and other attorneys turn to him again and again based on the solid results he gets.

"When you retain me we become partners. Your role is to begin to recover while I immediately begin fighting the insurance company or bank and their attorneys, getting your case ready for an eventual jury trial. This way, we negotiate from strength. The Latin phrase used by the Ancient Romans was Si vis pacem, para bellum: "If you wish for peace, prepare for war."" - Gregory P. Haegele
