Gordon & Rees Expands New York Presence with Buffalo Office

Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani has expanded its nationwide presence with the addition of an office located in Buffalo, New York. Donald Derrico will serve as the Buffalo Office Managing Partner for the firm. This is the fourth Gordon & Rees office to open in New York, joining existing offices in New York City, Westchester, and Long Island. 

The Buffalo office is positioned to serve the firm’s clients in the upstate New York region including Albany, Utica, Binghamton, Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo.  The attorneys in the Buffalo office work closely with other offices in the region as well as collaborate with attorneys across the country. The Buffalo team of attorneys has extensive experience addressing a wide-range of issues across a wide breadth of practice areas including:

  • Product & General Liability
  • Trucking & Transportation
  • Professional Liability Defense
  • Commercial Litigation
  • Domestic Relations
  • Class Action
  • Employment Law
  • Construction

“I’m excited about the opportunity to expand the national platform of Gordon & Rees,” Derrico said. “I look forward to helping the firm grow its presence in New York.”

Allyson Avila joins Derrico as Assistant Office Managing Partner of the Buffalo office. Avila is an accomplished trial attorney who enjoys an enviable track record of success. Dependable, responsive and approachable, her time and talent in the courtroom make her a “go-to” attorney when there is a risk of high exposure.

Derrico has built a reputation for trying challenging and complex legal matters involving New York Labor Law, commercial disputes, premises liability and security, product liability, auto liability, real estate disputes, civil rights matters, and complex matrimonial actions. Derrico is often called upon on the eve of trial to take over the file.  He and his team of seasoned litigators have had numerous successful outcomes.
