Certilman Balin Attorneys

At Certilman Balin, our priority has always been our clients.  We understand that the practice of law is a relationship business.  That’s why we do more than work for you.  We work with you.

Since 1965, we have been doing what we do best:  serving the Long Island community. During this time, we met many people who became longtime clients, and many became lifelong friends.  These relationships have grown and have helped us to develop diverse areas of practice, expanding our reach nationally and internationally.

We advocate for our clients.  We also support their philanthropic endeavors.  We understand the importance of giving back to our community, and we realize our clients helped us to become Long Island’s second largest full-service law firm.

But don’t let our size fool you.  We pride ourselves on that small law firm atmosphere.  When you need us, we are here to help.  We make you our priority and respond promptly.  When you have a legal issue, we apply our collective knowledge to ensure the best possible outcome.

Your success is our success.
