Q. What separates Denlea & Carton from other law firms?
A. A winning culture isn’t just a mindset; it’s a chemistry forged over decades, in the crucible of courtrooms across the country. At Denlea & Carton, we epitomize creative intellect and aggressive advocacy. We have a passionate and unrelenting will to win. We’re experienced trial lawyers, not paper litigators. Our clients require fearless strategists, who fight to ensure a meaningful return on their investment. It’s the reason we enjoy contingency (and alternative) fee engagements, where we share the risk (and reward) of prosecuting a case with our clients. We’re particularly sought after by clients who have a high stakes dispute they can’t afford to lose.

Q. What aspects of your firm makes clients seek your representation?
A. Denlea & Carton’s Commercial Litigation practice represents business owners, entrepreneurs, professional service companies, partnerships, and corporations in a myriad of industries. We pride ourselves in learning the nuances of your business and then crafting an approach that resonates with a judge and jury. We believe effective advocacy starts with compelling storytelling. Every dispute has a protagonist and an antagonist, and requires a strong narrative and cogent story arc. Our ability to communicate (both in writing and orally) in a clear, crisp, and concise manner is one of the hallmarks of our success and has contributed to our recognition by US News & World Report as one of the Best Law Firms for Commercial Litigation.

Q. Does your firm have a primary focus?
A. Denlea & Carton has always prided itself on being the go-to law firm for those with a dispute that cannot be resolved through traditional means of negotiation. As Westchester’s premier litigation boutique, our focus remains singular: litigating disputes to their resolution, whether through mediation, arbitration or the judicial system. Our lawyers have served as federal law clerks, local prosecutors and trained at prestigious Manhattan firms and bring their collective experience to help win your dispute.

Q. How do you measure your firm’s success?
A. Denlea & Carton measures its success by the quality, not quantity, of the matters it handles. We measure success one satisfied client at a time. While we’re humbled to be recognized annually by our peers and various ratings agencies, perennially selected as New York Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers, National Trial Lawyers and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates, it’s the simple thank you, smile, tears (of joy) or client embrace at the end of a hard-fought, successful outcome that is the best barometer of our success.
