Mary V. Harkins, Esq. brings her clients over 25 years of experience in all aspects of litigation. Prior to joining the firm, she was in-house counsel and then panel counsel at Travelers Insurance Company where she handled a wide variety of cases. Her background also includes work as a plaintiff’s attorney and she draws on that perspective in her current work.
At the firm, she focuses on depositions and preparation of cases for trial. She spends a great deal of time with clients and witnesses helping them understand and navigate each step in the lawsuit. It is this aspect of the job she enjoys most. As a former litigation instructor in the Paralegal Program at Queens College, she is adept at explaining the process in a clear and concise way. She is also supportive and reassuring with clients who find the experience difficult and frightening.
Mary is a busy wife and mother of 3 children. She is active in her community, including past board positions for the Floral Park Public Library Board of Trustees, PTA (OLV) and local mothers’ club. She is also a member of the Floral Park Village Third Track Committee and part of her local church’s Rosary Altar Society.
