Firm Overview

Behman Hambelton LLP is a mid-sized, regional litigation firm representing clients throughout New England, New York, and New Jersey.  While we approach all client matters with an eye for opportunities to obtain as prompt a favorable resolution as is possible, we also design a litigation plan for each matter to prepare it for trial, if ultimately necessary.  We have found that having a trial game plan for each litigated matter right from the outset actually serves to expose the weaknesses in the opposing party’s claims and leads, in many cases, to the settlement of such claims upon terms that are very favorable to our clients.

Should resolution by settlement not be possible, we are nevertheless fully prepared to take the matter to verdict.  Our experienced trial attorneys have developed a reputation for excellence in litigating matters in both State and Federal Courts on behalf of insureds, insurers and self-insureds, as well as individuals and businesses, concerning an array of complex legal issues.  In particular, we have achieved uncommon success at trial in the defense of such clients in matters involving liquor liability, premises liability, product liability, motor vehicle liability, construction site liability, professional liability, environmental claims, contribution and indemnity matters, declaratory judgments involving coverage issues and the defense of bad faith claims. We are also experienced in general commercial litigation and have strong family law, trusts and estates, probate litigation and workers’ compensation practices.

In addition to our proven track record of winning cases at trial, we believe it is our communication and reporting abilities that set us apart from other firms.  Our attorneys work very closely with our clients, whether they are individuals, claims representatives of insurers or managers of businesses.  Our attorneys are trained to involve the client decision-makers in every material aspect of a litigated matter.  We have found that this approach is the best avenue to achieve a good, cost-efficient result in every matter.  We take pride in excelling in all areas of practice, with client satisfaction our paramount goal.
