McConville Considine Cooman & Morin, P.C. is a full service law firm based in Rochester, New York, that has been providing quality legal services to businesses and individuals for over 30 years.
The firm first opened its doors in 1979 with four attorneys and two support staff members. Throughout the years the firm has had many distinguished "alumni" attorneys who have served the community in a variety of governmental capacities, including a United States District Court Judge, several state and local judges, and a New York State Senator. From our firm's modest beginning, we have carefully grown to include over a dozen attorneys and a full paralegal and support staff. The firm is large enough to provide the necessary expertise in a broad range of practice areas, yet small enough to allow us to provide prompt, personal attention to our clients.
Our experienced lawyers handle transactions, strategize business opportunities, solve problems, prepare estate plans, negotiate deals and litigate claims. We have been where you are before and we draw on that wealth of experience to guide you through your legal issues. Our attorneys are accomplished in their fields, having lectured frequently on a wide variety of legal issues. We also work hard to keep abreast of the ever-changing laws and regulations that affect our clients.
Our clients are diverse. They include individuals, numerous manufacturing and service industry businesses, local governments, health care professionals and provider groups, facilities and associations. Although many of our clients are located throughout Upstate New York, we also represent clients in Downstate New York and New England. We also serve as local counsel to a many out-of-state clients and their attorneys who have litigation pending in Western New York courts.
We understand that while you are dealing with serious legal issues, you do not have an unlimited budget with which to achieve your legal goals. We have chosen to maintain a cost-effective overhead structure, deliberately maintaining our office in an historic office building. We have also invested in state-of-the art communications and case management technologies that allows us to work efficiently while still providing the highest level of service. These choices are reflected in our fees and expenses, resulting in cost savings for our clients without sacrificing the quality of the work.
We welcome the opportunity to work with you. Please visit our Practice Areas pages to learn more about our areas of practice, or contact us at 585.546.2500 for more information.
