Picciano & Scahill, PC is a leading New York Litigation Law Firm dedicated to serving commercial insurers and self-insured corporations. For over 25 years we have focused solely on insurance defense litigation, handling thousands of first-party and third-party lawsuits.
The firm itself was formed in 1991 when Scahill teamed up with former FBI agent, John F. Picciano, and together they created an organization that quickly became one of the recognized leaders in New York trial law and insurance defense litigation.
Under Frank Scahill, the firm now has 100+ professionals and over 55 attorneys on staff and a proven track record of substantial wins in a wide variety of practice areas including lawsuits from motor vehicle accidents to construction, labor law, and premises liability claims, as well as significant experience conducting fraud investigations and handling complex insurance coverage issues.
As Managing Partner, Francis J Scahill, Esq. ensures the firm’s commitment to the Golden Rule – responsiveness to clients – and the result has been long-standing relationships – in some cases for decades – with many clients.
Scahill’s chief role as Managing Partner is overseeing litigation strategy for the firm. He is an accomplished trial lawyer with more than 100 trial wins; the majority with $1 million or more at risk. He draws on his substantial experience and insights to get results for clients. Pro bono is also part of the culture of the firm. Scahill believes in giving back and offers the firm’s legal services pro bono to the US Marine Garrison in Garden City and the US Army Garrison at Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn.
