Ted A. Barraco
Attorney At Law

I have been engaged in the general practice of law in Rochester, New York since February, 1983. I serve clients throughout Central and Western New York. My practice is largely devoted to civil and criminal litigation. I have focused my practice on the needs of individuals, families and small businesses. My practice includes litigation including trials and appeals for plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of cases including:

PERSONAL INJURIES automobile accidents, premises liability, slip and fall, medical and professional malpractice, products liability, wrongful death, breach of warranty, claims against bars and restaurants who serve alcohol to intoxicated or under-age persons, claims for workplace accidents and exposure to hazardous substances, No-Fault claims for lost wages, medical bills and expenses, civil rights claims including discrimination and false arrest claims and intentional torts such as assaults.

When the situation calls for it, I can make arrangements to meet you after normal business hours, at your home or in the hospital.

MATRIMONIAL AND FAMILY LAW divorce, separation, custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, family offenses, modification and enforcement of prior orders and agreements. These cases involve contested and uncontested matters; negotiation and settlement or trials and other court proceedings where necessary.

A divorce it not just a piece of paper, it is a process. Actions you take during that process may affect your personal and financial future.

COMMERCIAL LITIGATION insurance and business contract litigation. These cases include claims under various types of insurance policies, suits by and against contractors, disputes between businesses and disputes with creditors.

CRIMINAL LAW State and Federal criminal law including: vehicle and traffic violations, driving while intoxicated, penal law offenses, including misdemeanors and felonies and RICO based organized crime. These cases involve plea negotiations, motions to limit charges or evidence, pre-and post-trial hearings including hearings to test probable cause and suppression hearings for illegally obtained evidence such as statements, identifications, search and eavesdrop warrants, through trials and appeals.

ARBITRATION AND DISPUTE SETTLEMENT Litigation in these areas may be in the courts or in a number of different arbitration or mediation forums within the framework of the Family Courts, City Courts, Workers Compensation Board, Department of Motor Vehicles, Labor Department, Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, Zoning Boards of Appeals, American Arbitration Association and in various other dispute resolution programs.

OTHER SERVICES As a general practice attorney I also handle all matters of residential and commercial real estate including: purchases and sales, leases, land contracts, bank and private financing, title issues, land use and environmental regulation. I am also available for other services including: adoption and guardianships, wills and estates, creditor and consumer rights, and small business formation.
