    Attorney Profile

    I am a partner here at Black, Lyle & Habberfield, LLP and have been with the firm for 20 years.  My first 3 years were as an associate and the last 17 have been as a partner.  Our office is located in Olean, New York and we handle plaintiff's personal injury cases in both New York and Pennsylvania.  I am admitted to practice in both New York and Pennsylvania and our office location along the NY/PA border provides the opportunity to serve the citizens of both states. As I am a native Pennsylvanian (hometown of Sheffield, PA), I look forward to handling cases in my home state.

    Our law firm is unique in our area as we focus our practice on plaintiff's personal injury claims.  The cases we handle for our clients include injuries caused by car crashes, slip or trips and falls, construction accidents, dog bites, dangerous property, nursing home abuse or neglect and medical malpractice. Our firm will handle these cases from start to finish and you will know your lawyer on both a professional and personal level.

    We are happy to review your potential injury case free of charge and are willing to travel to your home or medical facility to discuss your case.  We have handled cases all across both states, including in their Federal Courts. We employ three full time Registered Nurses and a full time Private Investigator to make sure our client's cases are handled in the best possible manner. We look forward to serving the needs of our clients to the very best of our ability and experience.
