We have been advocates in the Hudson Valley area for five decades for hundreds of people just like you. We represent injury victims, consumers and workers and use our experience and dedicated, personalized service to provide each client with only the highest quality legal representation. Our firm is a small boutique operation that is committed to one thing: YOU, our client. You will not get lost with us.  We are right there with you every single step of the way. You never have to worry about being just a number in a big firm and handed off to an attorney with little to no experience. Both attorneys at Forrester & Calderin have more than 70 years of combined experience handling cases of serious injury and death as a result of car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, premises liability, boating collisions, or just about any other losses that happen as a result of negligence. 

Unfortunately justice is not automatic, even when it is clear that your injury was caused by another person's carelessness. In order to protect your legal rights, a number of issues must be carefully considered and addressed. We promise to:

• Comply with various time deadlines.
• Maneuver through the insurance company mine-field.
• Preserve and compile evidence to prove your case, and present it in the most favorable light under the applicable law.
• Take advantage of all benefits afforded under various laws and insurance policies.

Often these issues are very complex and errors can be costly. If you make a mistake, such as missing a legal time deadline or notification requirement in an insurance policy, you could lose your right to make a claim. If you say the wrong thing to an adjuster, it could do great harm to the value of your claim.

Those are just a few reasons why proceeding without legal advice is a risky choice. The system is stacked against someone who is not represented by an attorney. Remember, insurance companies are in business to make money, and they do this by trying to pay you as little as they possibly can, and sometimes nothing at all. That is why insurance companies have their own lawyers on staff, and why they train their adjusters to work the system to their own best advantage.

We have focused on serious personal injury and wrongful death cases involving negligence for a combined 70 years. We believe this is our best opportunity to serve the people who share our community when their lives are compromised.

We strive to make every client happy by following our five founding principles:
▪ We will never make you a promise that we cannot keep.
▪ We will treat you with respect.  We work for you.
▪ We will consistently communicate with you, return all of your phone calls and respond to all of your emails.
▪ We will provide you with personalized representation. We realize each client and each case is unique. 
▪ We will leave no stone unturned in working to get you the most compensation for your injuries.
