A particular focus of our firm is defending those accused of sex crimes and those persons subject to the Sex Offender Registration Act (SORA) act, where a judge determines what level of supervision is assigned to a person convicted of a sex offense.

Administrative Actions and Investigations

Many times clients come to us because they are under investigation by either a local, state, or federal agency (each has their own particular sets of rules and regulations). Sometimes we are able to negotiate a favorable settlement but if not, we try these matters across the state – from Albany to Westhampton – and have a long track record of obtaining favorable results at trial.

Personal Injury

Slip and falls, hit-and-runs, products liability, bites by vicious animals, and bar assaults are just some of the cases Mr. Mitev has settled or tried to verdict favorably for his clients. Over his career, Mr. Mitev has recovered millions for his clients. Mitev Law Firm, P.C. has a full-service personal injury department, where professionals who have dedicated their entire career solely to personal injury matters will fight hard to get you the highest possible recovery.

All Appeals

Well-known to the Appellate bench in the Second and First Department for over a decade, we continue to brief and argue all of our own appeals (and act as appellate counsel) to other lawyers, including in Federal Courts. Our track record speaks for itself, across all areas of law, including education, personal injury, matrimonial, criminal and labor law.

Education Law

The firm prides itself on being one of only a handful of New York firms with substantial experience in Education law, including 3214 and 3020-a hearings. We handle all education-related matters, from IDEA deprivation claims, to students suffering bullying at school, to those accused of academic dishonesty at any level. We are well known to New York school districts and universities as strident defenders of justice for students either accused or denied the equal protection of the laws. We represent teachers and administrators accused of misconduct or facing other disciplinary issues at all levels and in all courts.

Discrimination / Employment / Human and Constitutional Rights

Violations of civil rights, including sex and employment discrimination, racial discrimination, due process violations, privacy invasions, false arrest, defamation, freedom of the press, and other related areas are all handled with aplomb by the firm. We litigate matters before the New York State Division of Human Rights, New York State Supreme Courts, and the Federal Courts.

Wills, Trusts and Estates / Guardianships /Wrongful Death Suits
