Edward J. O’Gorman
Offices: Elmsford, NY
Edward specializes in the practice areas of construction occurrences, premises liability and insurance coverage. He was the first attorney in New York State to prevail in a “trivial sidewalk defect” argument at the appellate level. He was also the first attorney in New York State to prevail at the appellate level that a pit bull canine breed is not “inherently dangerous.” Both decisions reversed trial court decisions.
