Kosovych Law Firm, PLLC is a solo practice law firm that provides high-quality, practical, and reasonably priced legal services. Bohdan (Bud) Kosovych spent many years practicing law in a major U.S. corporation, in sizeable law firms, and in boutique firms, covering matters throughout the United States, as well as some matters for clients from Canada, Mexico, and Sweden. After gaining all that experience, he opened his solo practice at Kosovych Law Firm, PLLC, based in Staten Island, New York, but continued to help clients located in Manhattan and other areas of the country and clients from other countries regarding matters in New York.  Mr. Kosovych combines his experience, including as an outside general counsel to a business organization, with a strong dedication to client satisfaction, to provide effective results at reasonable prices.  Mr. Kosovych maintains the high standards and values he upheld at a large corporation and at top law firms, without expensive overhead.

Mr. Kosovych is empathic and puts people at ease.  People trust him and he listens well.  He can perceive essential points and communicate well in writing, allowing good drafting of documents.  This helps in communications with parties on the other side of transactions, to minimize obstacles and reach consensus as quickly as possible.  Mr. Kosovych chooses a relaxed style while focusing on the matter at hand to help clients reach their ultimate goal efficiently.  He genuinely cares about his clients.
