Jeffrey A. Jannuzzo, Esq.

Mr. Jannuzzo has been in solo practice for more than 20 years, and has concentrated on partnership disputes, malpractice claims and defense, and general commercial litigation and arbitration. He handles only a few cases at a time, and his adversaries are nearly all nationally-known law firms.

Of his 26 reported cases in the Appellate Division or Court of Appeals, twenty-four are wins, one was a partial win, and only one was a loss. The decision by the Court of Appeals in Darby v. Darby v. VSI, protecting lawyers against a certain type of malpractice claim, has been cited in case law or secondary sources over 100 times. The 2014 decision of the Court of Appeals in Melcher v. Greenberg Traurig regarding treble-damage claims for attorney deceit was a case of nationwide first impression.

His prior practice was in large firms, with an emphasis on international litigation. During the late 1980's, he was resident in Saudi Arabia, where he was among other things outside counsel to the U.S. government in military construction claims.

Mr. Jannuzzo was one of the candidates nominated by the United States for the U.N. Compensation Commission, which administered the war claims arising out of the first Gulf War. His video published by Lexis/Nexis, "Preparing For A Deposition In A Business Case," a practical tool used by lawyers to prepare their clients, is said to be the best-selling legal video ever made.
