Practice Areas


Our lawyers have developed extensive experience in the defense of litigated claims ranging from personal injury and property damage to professional liability, civil rights and discrimination claims. We promptly initiate a thorough investigation and work closely with our clients to formulate the best defense strategy. We attempt to dispose of every claim we can at the initial pleading stage. If settlement is the best option, we provide our frank appraisal and work with the client to effect the desired result to minimize our client's ultimate risk. We are always mindful of the need to handle every claim in the most expeditious and cost effective manner possible and work closely with claims professionals to achieve this goal.

An important component of Gunty & McCarthy's AV-rated defense includes the area of general negligence. Vehicular, premises and other personal injury claims are critically reviewed and often dispatched in the early stages of pleading and exhibit presentation. When necessary, intensive fact investigation is undertaken and cases readied for dispositive motion and trial practice. Successful verdicts and judgments include automobile property damage and personal injury, noxious fume inhalation and common slip and fall complaints.
