Black, Lyle, & Habberfield, LLP


Call : 716-373-1920




Over the last 50 years our firm has earned numerous, substantial verdicts and settlements for our clients.  We have outlined a few of the results we have achieved below. Please keep in mind that prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.


At Black, Lyle & Habberfield, LLP we limit our practice to handling personal injury cases in New York and Pennsylvania.  Our attorneys and staff have all been intensively trained in these cases and can  provide you with the best results possible.

In addition to our qualified and experienced paralegals and secretarial staff, we employ nurses and an investigator to help handle the issues that arise in personal injury litigation.  To assist the attorneys in working through the sometimes difficult process of determining how and why an incident or injury occurred we employ a full-time investigator.  In addition, the medical aspects of our clients’ cases can be quite complex so we also have two Registered Nurses on staff to aid both the attorneys and our clients with their understanding of the injuries suffered.
