Areas of Practice


Garvey & Associates handles all matters in bankruptcy from the simplest Chapter 7 no asset case to the most complex litigation with the largest of banks and creditors trying to foreclose on your family home in a Chapter 13 case or a zealous IRS or secured creditor asserting a lien over your business assets in a Chapter 11. We aggressively represent our clients faced with bankruptcy matters.

Criminal Defense

Drunk driving, white collar crime and drug offenses are nothing to be taken lightly. When you have been arrested, every move and word spoken can have a detrimental effect on your legal defense. What you need is experienced counsel who knows the ropes and can protect your legal rights at every step of the way. The difference can mean your freedom.

Personal Injury

Preventable accidents injure a substantial number of people each day in New York. While these accidents can occur in almost any way imaginable, they all have one thing in common: if they are caused by the negligence of another person, victims are usually legally entitled to compensation for the losses they incur as a result of their accident. At Garvey & Associates, we are qualified to handle cases arising from any type of accident and regularly represent both plaintiffs and defendants in personal injury litigation.


The prospect of losing one's home can be daunting. At Garvey & Associates, we have the experience to fight the banks on our home court. Errors by banks are abundant and we find them. We have the experience and know how to save your home and provide you with a loan modification that you can afford and deserve.

Estate Planning

Caring for the next generation is a complex matter for those without a will or estate plan. Trusts are often the answer when it comes to asset protection and often times, a simple will accomplishes a lot. Don't forego these important family decisions. When you don't have a plan, the state enacts theirs for you, and you may not like it! Health care proxies are not an option for the sick and elderly. Contact us now for a free family consultation.
