Bottar Leone, PLLC, is a nationally recognized upstate New York law firm dedicated to the prosecution and trial of medical malpractice, workplace accident, dangerous product, severe personal injury and wrongful death cases.
From our principal office located in Syracuse’s AXA Towers and through satellite offices in Albany, Binghamton, Rochester, Utica and Watertown, our experienced Syracuse injury attorneys and skilled support staff have, since 1983, served clients throughout the State of New York and the northeast United States.
Guided by the experience, principles and resolve of partners Anthony S. Bottar, a past-president of the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers, Michael A. Bottar and Edward S. Leone, each of whom are listed in The Best Lawyers In America® and Upstate New York Super Lawyers®, our legal team has helped thousands of patients, motorists, workers and consumers secure just compensation for life-altering injuries, disabilities and losses. In addition to the daily application of more than 100 years of combined legal experience, the Firm's accomplished and civic-minded attorneys hold leadership positions in bar associations, proudly support community organizations, and lecture, teach and publish annually on practice-related topics.
As established industry leaders, Bottar Leone, PLLC, is the only law firm in central New York featured in Newsweek and TIME, and listed as “first-tier” for personal injury litigation in the best law firms edition of U.S. News and World Report. We are also the only firm in Upstate New York to earn a 2014 and 2015 National Litigator Award™ from the Trial Lawyers Board of Regents, an honor considered one of “the nation’s most coveted symbols of litigation achievement.”
We are proud of our hard-earned reputation as one of the region’s premier personal injury law firms. However, we find greater satisfaction in knowing that our commitment to civil justice has changed the lives of our clients and, at the same time, played a part in improving upon the delivery of healthcare, the safety of structures, equipment, roadways and jobsites, as well as the proper design and manufacturing of pharmaceuticals, biomedical devices, and household or consumer goods.
While the Syracuse injury attorneys at Bottar Leone, PLLC are highly-selective in accepting cases, they do not retreat from meritorious claims simply because they are costly or challenging to prove. Our legal team makes this pledge to the community, and its clients, because our attorneys firmly believe that those who experience a loss due to negligence or malpractice deserve a skilled legal advocate and, when necessary, a day in court. Consistent with our conviction, cases accepted by the Firm are handled on a contingency basis – which means that we are not paid for our time unless there is a recovery.
While this website provides an overview of our experience, our history, the nature of our plaintiff’s only practice, our honors and awards, our dedication to the community, and our ability to resolve complex and aggressively-defended serious personal injury and medical malpractice cases to the satisfaction of our clients, it is not a substitute for a telephone conversation or in-person meeting with one of our attorneys about your potential case.
