Experienced Attorneys Empowering Victims of Employment Discrimination & Medical Malpractice in New York's Capital Region


If you have been the victim of hospital negligence or medical malpractice, when you believe nursing home staff are abusing a loved one, or if you think your race or gender played a part in your termination at work, one thing is for certain: you need attorneys on your side who understand how you’re feeling, care about helping you, and have the knowledge and experience to take effective action.

Mr. Peterson and Ms. D’Orazio have both worked in large law offices, but when forming their own firm, they knew they wanted to interact with their clients on a much more personal level. They intentionally keep their caseload small so their clients receive their full attention; your case will never be turned over to a younger associate or paralegal. You hire the husband and wife legal team at D’Orazio Peterson, and that’s who will stay with you from start to finish.

Your first consultation with us is completely free, so contact our Saratoga Springs law office today by calling (888) 706-9765. You are also invited to request complimentary copies of our books, The Right to Know: 5 Common Questions From Victims of Hospital and Nursing Home Negligence (and How to Find the Answers) and Welcome Back, You’re Fired: Common, but Illegal, Examples of Discrimination in the Workplace (and Why Most Cases Fail).

Professional, Established Albany County Employment and Malpractice Lawyers

At D’Orazio Peterson, we represent clients from New York City to Plattsburgh to Albany, Schenectady, and Troy, and right here in Saratoga Springs. We focus on cases related to serious injury and employment law, including:

Medical Malpractice

Did you or a family member have a treatment within the past several months that was unsuccessful? Stop trying to simply live with the pain because your physician or podiatrist is brushing you off every time you express your concerns. We help victims of all types of medical malpractice, with a special focus on podiatric negligence.

Hospital and Nursing Home Negligence

When someone you love is injured in a hospital or nursing home, it is very alarming how quickly facilities try to downplay injuries or completely try to avoid accepting fault. Don’t be intimidated by these large healthcare organizations; we will deal with them head-on and ensure your voice is heard.

Employment Law

Losing a job is usually a terrifying scenario for most people, but what do you do if you suspect the reason behind your termination is illegal? You may have a solid employment law case if you were let go following a pregnancy leave or feel you were discriminated against in some way based on your race, gender, age, or disability.

Medical Malpractice Medical Malpractice

When you put your health—and sometimes your life—in a doctor’s hands, you trust that she will take care of you to the best of her ability. Unfortunately, healthcare professionals sometimes make poor decisions that can negatively affect a patient’s life forever. If this has happened to you, you may have a medical malpractice case on your hands.

Hospital & Facility Negligence Hospital & Facility Negligence

What do you do when the medical professionals you trusted make negligent decisions that injure you or someone you love? Hospital and nursing home negligence is far too common and can lead to things like bedsores, infections, and physical or emotional scars. If you or a loved one experienced negligence at a hospital or nursing facility, D’Orazio Peterson wants to help you.

Employment Law Employment Law

If you were recently laid off during maternity leave or you’re having trouble at work and think discrimination is to blame, you have the right to fight back against your employer’s poor behavior.
