The Best Lawyers in America© has named Goldberg Segalla partners Thomas F. Segalla, Albert J. D’Aquino, and John P. Freedenberg each a 2019 “Lawyer of the Year” in their respective locations and practice areas. The publication recognizes Tom as Buffalo Insurance Law Lawyer of the Year, Al as Buffalo Legal Malpractice Law (Defendants) Lawyer of the Year, and Jack as Product Liability Litigation (Defendants) Lawyer of the Year for 2019.
