Shareholder Nathan Petrusak concentrates his practice in the areas of commercial law and civil litigation, municipal law, appellate, and bankruptcy law. A determined trial lawyer, Mr. Petrusak is approachable, honest, and forward-thinking with his clients. He brings analytical thinking and skilled argumentation to achieve the best possible results with every case.
