Biography

Matthew Lerner concentrates his practice on appellate advocacy, insurance coverage litigation, construction worksite injury and general litigation. Many professional achievements highlight his career and continuous recognition by his peers is testament to his tireless efforts to stay at the forefront of the practice of law.

Upon joining the firm, Matt helped to defend an international manufacturer against a nationwide class action. Today, he is the Chair of the firm's Appellate Advocacy Practice Group, recognized for its vast appellate experience. The New York State Bar Association recently presented Matt with its Sheldon Hurwitz Young Lawyer Award in recognition of outstanding contribution to the practice of law in the field of insurance.

He has successfully argued appeals at New York's highest court, all four Appellate Division Departments, and the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. He has also authored amicus curiae briefs for a national non-profit organization that represents American and international product manufacturers.

Prior to joining Goldberg Segalla, Matt served as a confidential clerk for the New York State Court of Appeals. His experience in the unique procedural requirements of the state's highest court enhances the vast experience of the firm's Appellate Advocacy Practice Group.

Matt is publisher of New York Civil Law , one of the first blogs dedicated to New York civil law, providing frequent updates on current legal events in New York, New York appellate issues, insurance coverage and defense issues, labor law and tort law issues. The blog also contains numerous case summaries and links to published court decisions.
