Construction (Labor Law)/Accident Litigation

OOH&D has been representing landowners, construction managers, general contractors, sub-contractors, and suppliers in litigations arising from construction project accidents at both the lower court and appellate level for over twenty years. Many of our cases involve plaintiffs who have suffered catastrophic injuries and therefore represent matters involving significant exposure for our clients. Our experience and skill allows us to effectively handle the advocacy required by this very nuanced field of law. We have also built a community of trial-experienced experts, to whom we turn in preparing our cases, so that we provide our clients with an exceptional and cost-conscious work product.

General Liability Litigation

OOH&D has been counseling and litigating on behalf of clients in all manner of general liability claims, many involving serious and even catastrophic injury, since the inception of the firm. Collectively, our attorneys have handled hundreds of trials in fields that include: premises liability, automotive liability, trucking liability, negligent security, property loss and elevator/escalator liability. We treat each of our cases with the same degree of care and diligence, regardless of the damages being sought, because we recognize that to our clients, each of our cases is critically important.

Automobile/Emergency Vehicle Litigation/UM/SUM Motorist Coverage/No Fault Litigation

OOH&D regularly defends actions arising from automobile, trucking and emergency vehicle accidents, including the defense of personal injury actions, UM/SUM petitions for arbitration, and defense of insurance carriers in the context of no fault litigation.

We have become an industry leader in the defense of no fault claims in both the arbitration and litigation forums. We appear in all jurisdictions in the metropolitan New York area and represent both insurance carriers and personal clients in this field.

Elevator Litigation

OOH&D has an established elevator/escalator team within our firm comprised of experienced litigators who are familiar with the technology and decisional law applicable to this field. OOH&D has extensive experience representing elevator installers, maintenance companies, property owners and managing agents in escalator and elevator accident cases, and we have achieved success on our clients’ behalf in resolving such cases as expeditiously as possible. For the last decade, OOH&D has also served as national counsel for The Peelle Company in connection with the product liability matters that arise from the world’s largest freight door system manufacturer and installer.

Municipalities & School Litigation

We represent municipalities and schools in a wide variety of tort litigation, including actions based on premises liability, negligent supervision, defamation/libel and attractive nuisance.

Insurance Coverage Counseling & Litigation

The firm regularly advises insurers and private clients on coverage positions arising under automobile, commercial, homeowner, umbrella, excess, and professional liability policies. The firm prosecutes and defends declaratory judgment actions arising out of insurance coverage issues and has done so in cases involving significant exposure to our clients.

Products Liability

OOH&D has extensive experience in defending product liability suits against manufacturers, distributors and retailers of: motor vehicles, medical devices, home and office products, industrial machinery, baby and child related products, elevator and escalator equipment, farming equipment and sports and recreational equipment. Our attorneys are both skilled and knowledgeable in managing the many complex issues that arise from these multi-party litigations, while always keeping in mind our client's best interests - maximizing the safety and marketability of their product and the preservation of their reputation in the community. Knowing how to balance these issues with an ongoing litigation is one reason why our experience could be critically important to your company.

Premises Liability

We represent owners, property managers, agents, contractors, and tenants in premises liability actions throughout the metropolitan New York area. Our clients include large real estate conglomerates with multiple commercial properties as well as residential homeowners involved in property disputes and premises liability matters. As a service to our clients, OOH&D regularly lectures clients on the prevailing law and the changes in the law in order to aid them in avoiding or limiting claims in the future.

Appellate Practice

At OOH&D, when an appeal is appropriate on one of our cases, we have experienced appellate counsel to handle that appeal without our clients having to pay to outsource that task. Our appellate practice attorneys are experienced in defending and prosecuting appeals in each of the areas in which they practice. We frequently argue cases before the New York Appellate Courts and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Medical, Dental and Ophthalmological Malpractice

OOH&D has been defending the interests of medical institutions, doctors, ophthalmologists, optometrists and other health care providers for over twenty years. Our attorneys have defended doctors in cases involving: failure to timely diagnose cancer and other medical conditions, misdiagnoses of medical conditions, lack of informed consent to perform surgery, medication errors, failure to properly interpret a diagnostic study, and emergency room errors.

Real Estate

In order to better serve the needs of our clients, we have attorneys on staff who are experienced in handling all aspects of residential real estate transactions, including the buying, selling and leasing of homes within the metropolitan New York area.

Matrimonial & Family Law

Aimee D. Drexler, Esq. has practiced extensively in the field of matrimonial and family law, and has gathered a great deal of experience dealing with a wide range of matrimonial issues, including pre-nuptial, post-nuptial, and separation agreements, custody and visitation issues, equitable distribution, spousal and child support issues, enforcement and modification proceedings, awards of counsel fees and experts fees, as well as matters involving relocation.

While a trial attorney, Ms. Drexler recognizes that amicable resolution of a matrimonial or family law matter often best serves a client's goals and interests. Toward that end, Ms. Drexler has substantial experience in the negotiation of fair and equitable settlement agreements predicated on careful and thorough attention to a client's case.
