Pictured is Fiona, a Miniature Schnauzer, that recently joined Mr. Young's household. Sanford F. Young established his New York City law firm in March 1978 after gaining experience at a prominent Park Avenue law firm after graduating with honors in the top-ten of his class at Syracuse University College of Law (May 1976).
He laid the foundation for his current practice by recognizing the need of his peers, individuals and business for the services of an unusual and dedicated attorney who could bring a fresh perspective to complex and difficult cases that often overwhelm other attorneys.
Mr. Young is consistently called upon by other law firms, individuals and businesses to provide them with candid and meaningful second legal opinions, reorient their strategies, handle appeals and take on complex litigation matters that other lawyers may prefer not to contend with.
The hundreds of cases he successfully tried, appealed, and settled after they were abandoned by other attorneys, who found themselves in over their heads, earned Mr. Young his well-founded reputation as a "lawyer's lawyer."
