Results and Value with Swift, Cost-Effective Resolution

Pillinger Miller Tarallo began in 2002 with a handful of lawyers representing insurance clients in New York. Since then, we have grown to over 108 attorneys located throughout New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. This successful growth comes by providing highly-experienced representation to our clients in all areas of civil litigation. Our primary objective is to provide our clients results and value with swift, cost-effective resolution of cases to deliver the most favorable outcome possible.

Our Firm is AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating achieved only by a select group of law firms nationwide after a rigorous screening process.

The attorneys at PMT have handled thousands of cases across numerous practice areas throughout the Northeast. Because of this, we are a leading “go-to” trial firm for insurance defense litigation. In addition, we have tried over 500 cases since the formation of the firm. Our approach to each and every case is to provide not only sound legal counsel but also to ensure excellent  client service. The foregoing principles have guided us over the years and have laid a foundation for our attorneys to build upon for the future.

What Our Clients Say


PMT is client focused. We make effective communication a priority and appreciate the sophistication of our clients. When it comes to the concerns of their business, we measure ourselves on our proactive performance. As a firm, PMT possess a team spirit philosophy and implements strategies to put our clients first. We are sensitive to their needs and concerns.

As a claims manager, the cases that I oversee are high exposure, complex with complicated legal issues. I recently had exactly that type of case where a young worker fell from scaffolding at a work site and died. We internally decided, like many other high exposure cases, that this case should be assigned to Pillinger Miller Tarallo (“PMT”), as my experience with them has been top notch. We assigned them to this case shortly after the loss to assist us with the post-accident investigation. Our client, along with our claims team worked with PMT during the investigation so that we would have a litigation strategy, should suit be filed. Once we received the lawsuit, the rest was easy. We agreed to a litigation strategy based on the PMT investigation, and PMT went to work on it. They quickly found the pressure points and were able to resolve the case very favorably at mediation. It is not just the large cases that they excel at resolving but I am very pleased with the consistent results that PMT has gotten on all our matters over the years I have been using them.

Douglas C. Millner – Claim Account Manager

As the Global Head of Claims, we go through a thorough vetting of law firms who we designate as “Approved Counsel”. The Law Firm of Pillinger Miller Tarallo was one of those selected firms. For 19+ years, they have been a trusted adviser and a firm which has demonstrated the ability to achieve desired results. They work as a team with our claim professionals to resolve cases and provide excellent communication during the process. It is because of this we believe PMT is a valued asset to our company by partnering with us to achieve the best results to our litigation management process.
