WE ARE EXPERIENCED.

Steve Modica has been in private practice since 1990 and founded Modica Law Firm on November 1, 1995.

WE HANDLE A BROAD RANGE OF WORK-RELATED LEGAL ISSUES.

We handle labor and employment, whistleblower, Social Security, New York State Retirement System and other disability benefit, Workers’ Compensation, and personal injury cases. We also serve in an impartial capacity (arbitrator, mediator, hearing officer, referee, special master, and guardian ad litem) in many different types of cases, including personal injury, labor and employment law, civil rights and Surrogates Court cases.

WE HELP PEOPLE TAKE ACTION.

W. Clement Stone said: “Thinking will not overcome fear, but action will.” Our mission is to “Help People Take Action” so that they can overcome fear associated with accidents, injuries, illnesses, and employment problems.

WE FOLLOW THE GOLDEN RULE.

We serve you like we want to be served. We are compassionate, empathetic, and dedicated. We do common things uncommonly well. For example, we take the time to educate you about your case. We call you back. We answer your e-mails. We care about you.

WE ARE RESPECTED AND RECOGNIZED.

Our business comes primarily from satisfied clients, union officials, and lawyers (including lawyers on the opposite side of our cases) who refer people they care about. We have grown our firm the “old fashioned” way.

We are quoted frequently in the Rochester Business Journal, Daily Record, and other publications. We are leaders in our legal community (Steve Modica served as President of the Monroe County Bar Association and currently serves as Chair of the Attorney Grievance Committee of the Seventh Judicial District) and teach at continuing legal education seminars.

We have received multiple awards for our legal and community work. We have been named “Best Law Firm in America” in Employment Law–Individuals. We also received the 2016 Corporate Human Service Contributor of the Year Award from the Federation of Social Workers, which recognizes that we help those in need and improve the quality of life in the Rochester community.

Steve has also received many individual awards. Click here for more information.

WE ARE GENEROUS AND COMMUNITY ORIENTED.

We give back in many ways by donating our time (e.g., handling cases pro bono), talent (e.g., speaking to community groups), and treasure (e.g., giving and raising funds for worthy organizations). Click here for more information.

We welcome the opportunity to serve you.
