Municipal Defense

Quatela Chimeri, PLLC defends New York State municipal entities and their insurance companies during pre-suit investigation, active litigation, and negotiation. New York State's governmental entities can be held accountable for damages caused by the actions or inactions of their governing bodies or employees. The legal framework that governs municipal liability claims in New York is complex and often differs according to the type of claim and entity being sued. Our personal injury and criminal defense attorneys are experienced in handling legal challenges facing municipalities, their employees, and their constituencies, which could include:

  • Governmental Immunity
  • Tort Liability
  • Title VII, the ADA and the FMLA
  • Constitutional Challenges to Local Ordinances
  • State Actor Liability Under Section 1983
