When looking for trial counsel, please consider Hagelin Spencer LLC. Our law practice is litigation intensive and results oriented. We are full time trial lawyers who know people and know the law. We have substantial experience in complex jury cases. Our rate of success is the envy of our peers. We hire for character, communicate with honesty, and compete with intensity. Our clients tell us they like us. We like and respect them too. We treat our clients the way we want to be treated.

The firm maintains an extensive litigation practice in automobile liability, municipal liability, premises liability, products liability, insurance coverage, malpractice liability, appellate practice, and arbitration.

We have offices in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Garden City and Jersey City. Our practice takes us throughout New York State. We actively participate in all State, Federal and local courts. We are large enough to handle the largest corporate clientele, while small enough to personalize every assignment. Our support staff is top shelf and highly motivated. Our offices are modern, efficient, tasteful, and accessible.
