The strength of your legal team starts with each Certilman Balin lawyer. Together, we strive to meet your goals through trust and hard work.


Certilman Balin is a major supporter of philanthropic causes throughout the surrounding community. In addition to financial support, the firm's partners and associates give a great deal of their time serving as board members, advisors and committee members.

The success of a law firm is tied to the success of its clients.

Since 1965, we have been doing what we do best: serving the Long Island community. During this time, we met many people who became longtime clients, and many became lifelong friends. These relationships have grown and have helped us to develop diverse areas of practice, expanding our reach nationally and internationally. 

We advocate for our clients. We also support their philanthropic endeavors. We understand the importance of giving back to our community, and we realize our clients helped us to become one of Long Island’s largest full-service law firms. 

But don’t let our size fool you. We pride ourselves on that small law firm atmosphere. When you need us, we are here to help. We make you our priority and respond promptly. When you have a legal issue, we apply our collective knowledge to ensure the best possible outcome.

Your success is our success.
