Attorney Sanford F. Young

Sanford F. Young established his New York City law firm in March 1978 after gaining experience at a prominent Park Avenue law firm after graduating with honors in the top-ten of his class at Syracuse University College of Law (May 1976).

He laid the foundation for his current practice by recognizing the need of his peers, individuals and business for the services of an unusual and dedicated attorney who could bring a fresh perspective to complex and difficult cases that often overwhelm other attorneys.

Mr. Young is consistently called upon by other law firms, individuals and businesses to provide them with candid and meaningful second legal opinions, reorient their strategies, handle appeals and take on complex litigation matters that other lawyers may prefer not to contend with.

The hundreds of cases he successfully tried, appealed, and settled after they were abandoned by other attorneys, who found themselves in over their heads, earned Mr. Young his well-founded reputation as a "lawyer's lawyer."

Marc Szafran, Esq.

For appellate work and complex litigation matters, I cannot more highly recommend New York litigator Sanford F. Young. I have known Sandy for almost 10 years and, as a fellow attorney, had the distinct pleasure of working with him extensively on several complex commercial litigation matters before the NYS Supreme Court and Appellate Division, Second Department and the United States District Court, Southern District of New York. Sandy writes wonderfully, has a keen ability to simplify the complicated and is comfortable making nuanced arguments. His clear and succinct briefs and legal pleadings are well thought through and effective. Based on my experience, I would recommend him to any trial attorney in need of professional guidance or creative solutions to complex issues.

Clients’ Testimonials

***** “Sanford Young is an excellent attorney: Mr. Young represented me in a lengthy and complex litigation against a large corporation, in Federal Courts. He worked very hard on my behalf and was completely dedicated to this case, which required an enormous amount of time and research. He was highly knowledgeable with regard to the relevant law and was very articulate, both in his oral and written presentations. The case required numerous written submissions, as well as two presentations to an appeals court. I could not have asked for better representation and recommend him highly for his dedication, hard work, and integrity.”


***** “Highly experienced Appellate Attorney: Sandy Young came highly recommended to me by another attorney as one of the best in handling complex appellate cases. I am very pleased that I retained him to appeal the decision of my lower state court case.
