Experience you can rely on
If you were recently involved in a car accident or have suffered from a personal injury or the wrongful death of a loved one due to the negligence of another, you may be entitled to compensation.

If you have been injured while on the job due to a work-related injury, you may be entitled to cash wage benefits and medical care. New York State Workers' Compensation law provides that workers who suffer permanent injuries at work involving the loss of use of body parts are entitled to a schedule of payments. Death benefits are also available to the survivor's of a worker who dies as a result of a compensable accident or occupational disease. There are strict rules on the timing of workers' compensation claims, thus it is prudent to consult an attorney immediately if you have been injured or became ill on the job.
We handle residential tenant evictions and represent landlords only. If you own real property and have a tenant who is in arrears in rent, causing a nuisance, endangering other tenants, or holding over after the lease term, we may be able to assist you. We handle evictions throughout Western New York and are proficient in manufactured home tenant eviction law as well. Call today to see if we can help.

"I worked with Ms. Proto for an eviction case. Throughout the entire process, she was a fantastic partner. She was responsive, a good communicator, empathetic, and efficient. That alone was worth five stars. But if I could give a sixth, it would be for going above and beyond: more than a year after the case was closed, she went out of her way to help my previous tenant with a record issue with the court. I highly recommend."

"Rose took the time to answer all my questions and was very patient and thorough. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a lawyer."
