Patrick Naylon, a partner in Goldberg Segalla’s Rochester office, is among the firm’s senior litigators, with over 35 years of litigation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) experience. A former police officer, whether proceeding as a litigator or a mediator, Pat seeks to reach the best possible resolution for his clients by practicing exhaustive investigation and founding all legal decisions and counsel on a comprehensive understanding of the matter at hand.
Pat is an active member of several of the firm’s practice groups, including Employment and Labor, Municipalities and Public Entities, and Professional Liability. His experience in litigated matters runs the gamut from inception through appeals.
He has taken trials to verdict in federal and state courts involving civil rights, product liability, and labor law claims, as well as claims of professional malpractice, negligence, and catastrophic injury.
He also represents several municipalities not only in litigation, but in day-to-day counseling and in negotiation with respect to labor and employment matters.
He has resolved hundreds of his own cases via all avenues of ADR, and was among a small and select group of attorneys invited by the Western District of New York federal judiciary to become a Certified Federal Court Mediator.
As a mediator, he has successfully resolved a very high percentage of employment discrimination and personal injury cases. Pat likewise mediates state court cases as selected by individual attorneys, serving as a panel mediator for Resolute, Inc. and National Arbitration and Mediation Services.
Pat helps parties and their attorneys reach prompt and cost-efficient dispositions, drawing on his distinct career background, holistic understanding of the nature of disputes, extensive litigation experience, and common-sense guidance.
