We do not merely handle cases; we represent real people with real problems on an individual basis.Our philosophy is to thoroughly prepare every case for the crucible of the courtroom. This requires meticulous preparation of all relevant facts and complete knowledge of applicable law. Our attorneys work closely with doctors and other professionals, bringing together the best expert witnesses to assist in preparation and trial of our cases. We spare no expense because we believe that each client deserves the best opportunity to present his or her case to a jury.
Not only have we had great success at trial, but our appellate record is outstanding. We take great pride in the firm's contributions to the advancement of personal injury law on the appellate level. We are especially proud of arguing and obtaining favorable decisions in two of the leading medical malpractice cases in New York, one permitting punitive damages, the other extending the Statute of Limitations in order to allow a doctor to be sued.Of course, not every case is tried to verdict. We are able to obtain substantial settlements prior to trial due to our firm’s thorough investigation and expert preparation of every case.
