Trustworthy Highland lawyer for civil, administrative and criminal proceedings

Quality legal representation is a duty I take very seriously. When it comes to injury cases and criminal defense work, I am:
  • Dedicated — I focus intently on delivering the best results possible under the facts of your case, but I am also determined to give you support and confidence throughout the process. My office is responsive to your calls and emails, and I keep you actively involved and informed throughout the course of your representation.
  • Experienced — I have represented individuals in civil and criminal court proceedings and before numerous boards and administrative agencies throughout the Hudson Valley for more than 30 years.
  • Professional — Colleagues familiar with my practice have helped me to earn a Distinguished® Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, a recognition of  my professional ethics and legal ability.
Legal matters are worrisome enough without your own attorney adding to your anxiety. I take the time to thoroughly explain all the aspects of the case to you in plain language.

Areas of Practice

Knowledgeable assistance for workers and employers in workers’ compensation disputes

If you have been hurt on the job in the Highland area, I can help you get the compensation you need and deserve to help cover your medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. I help injured workers recover workers’ compensation benefits as well as other applicable benefits, including Social Security disability and NYS retirement disability. I have a solid grasp of the medical issues involved in common workers’ compensation injuries and can engage with medical providers and insurance company representatives to accept your claim or reach a favorable disability settlement. When facts warrant a third-party negligence lawsuit, I can help you recover personal injury damages. I also have vast experience on the other side of workers’ compensation disputes. I am the only uninsured employer defense attorney in the Highland, New York area.

Capable trial lawyer for criminal defense cases and personal injury claims

Whether you’re facing jeopardy from an injury event or an arrest, you can rely on Peter M. Cordovano, P.C. for aggressive, determined representation. I have extensive experience with negotiations and trials arising from:
  • Personal injury cases — If you have been injured in a car accident, a slip and fall, or medical malpractice, our office will thoroughly investigate the incident and prepare a compelling case to get you the maximum amount of compensation available. When insurance companies know they are going up against a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury attorney, they are more likely to deal fairly right from the start. And if a satisfactory settlement can’t be reached, I am prepared to litigate the matter as far as necessary to provide my clients with the best outcome possible.
  • Criminal defense — If you have been arrested for DWI, a misdemeanor or a felony, you need a strong criminal defense attorney who can help you obtain the best result in your case. While no attorney can guarantee a complete dismissal of charges or an acquittal at trial, I can press for other positive results including a reduction in charges or a plea agreement that helps you avoid jail time.
When you retain my services for your civil claim or criminal matter, you get my full attention and my determination to fight for your rights.
