Firm History

For over a decade, Catalano Gallardo & Petropoulos, LLP has earned the confidence and respect of its clients, the bench and the bar through the quality of its work. In 2004, the Firm’s founding partners left a large Long Island litigation firm with one objective in mind: to form a firm grounded in the goal of providing the best legal representation to its clients. The practice quickly grew from three enterprising attorneys to a sophisticated litigation firm boasting state-of-the-art technological capabilities.
