Hi, I am Matthew Lerner. The purpose of this Blawg is to provide a forum for those people who would like to discuss the interesting issues that arise concerning New York civil law. Unfortunately, work responsibilities prevent my colleagues and me from discussing at length those cases that we find interesting. Hopefully, you can find the time to read my posts and add to the dialogue.

Being an attorney has been a labor of love for me. I have been an attorney for just under eight years, graduating from the University of Buffalo School of Law in 1999. After law school, I served as a court attorney for the New York Court of Appeals. My years at the Court were inspiring. During my time with the Court, I acquired an interest for appellate practice and insurance law, among other areas of law.

I am partner at the Albany, New York office of Goldberg Segalla LLP. I specialize in appellate practice, construction law, insurance coverage and defense, and products liability. I have successfully argued appeals in all four Appellate Division Departments, the New York Court of Appeals, and the United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Enjoy my Blawg.
