About Us

Your Local Suffolk
County Law Firm

The Law Office of Carl Maltese was founded in 1966 and has been owned by the same family ever since. We have remained at the same location in Smithtown, NY since we opened, and many of our employees have been with us for over two decades. As a premier boutique personal injury law firm, over 90% of our clients are Suffolk County residents that have been injured in an accident, and we take their cases to the Riverhead, NY courthouse nearly every day to help them achieve fair and just results. We believe you deserve better than a lawyer you’re never able to meet with in person, so each member of our firm can be contacted at our one local offices in Smithtown whenever you need them.

Our Experience In Suffolk County

We handle only personal injury and negligence cases, and we represent both victims with catastrophic injuries as well as those other firms decide are too difficult for them. If your injury has impacted your life in any way, we believe that you deserve an attorney who will work hard in seeking to obtain the full compensation to which you are entitled. When defendants don’t pay their full and fair compensation, we take them to trial and present our case to a jury. This is our job, and it’s one we are privileged to have.
