A Special Relationship: Sullivan Papain and New York City’s Bravest
Sullivan Papain Block McGrath & Cannavo is not only the go-to law firm for the Uniformed Firefighters Association, but can help individual firefighters and their families with a wide variety of legal needs.
We began our work with the UFA in the early 1980s and have a deep and successful record of advocacy on behalf of the union’s 8,000 members. Michael Block, a member of the firm, serves as the union’s general counsel, and along with his partners has earned the trust and respect of firefighters across New York City. Through our work with the UFA, Sullivan Papain is fully aware of how firefighters heroically place themselves in harm’s way to protect the lives and property of New York citizens.
We also know, from many years of experience in handling fire-related litigation, that the lives of firefighters are unnecessarily placed in jeopardy because of the wrongdoing of others — be it in the faulty design or maintenance of buildings or as a result of inadequate or defective fire equipment. And over the years Sullivan Papain has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for injured firefighters and for surviving family members of those who were killed in the line of duty.
