Shafer Partners is the Downstate New York and New Jersey member firm of Your House Counsel®, the National Consortium of Highly Regarded Insurance and Corporate Liability Defense Law Firms.

We provide the best defense possible, while working within company guidelines and maintaining a cost conscious attitude towards defense – without sacrificing quality. We believe that the best way to contain costs is to resolve cases as quickly as possible, whether through settlement, summary judgment dismissal or determining where insurance coverage may be owed by others.

Our lawyers work in and out of the courtroom to achieve positive results, believing that a good legal defense requires careful analysis and direction from start to finish. All matters are evaluated at appropriate junctures of the litigation, so that resolution can be considered at each step of the way. We maintain close contact with company representatives to make sure that our plan is your plan.
