Established New York law firm litigates personal injury cases

After a serious accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you need time to focus on your physical recovery. However, it may be difficult to take care of yourself when you’re worried about paying your hospital bills or missing wages due to being out of work. At our offices, we provide strong legal representation needed to fight for compensation on behalf of clients. For more than four decades, our Garden City, New York firm has represented individuals involved in many types of personal injury cases, including those involving automobile and truck accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, wrongful death, product liability, workers’ compensation and construction accidents. We have collected millions of dollars for our clients through arbitration, mediation and trials and recovered for their pain and suffering, past, present and future lost wages/medical and hospital and rehabilitation costs and other special damages.

Tenacious attorney provides reliable legal guidance and representation

Since 1976, my law firm has provided trustworthy legal guidance and robust representation to accident victims. Injured individuals in New York trust our law firm because we provide:

  • Aggressive representation — Although we explore alternatives to litigation, I personally won’t hesitate to provide aggressive representation in court in order to secure fair compensation for our clients’ losses.
  • Accessible legal services — No injured victim should have to abandon a claim because of an inability to pay legal fees. We work on a contingency basis, which means you won’t pay any legal fees unless we recover money damages for you.
  • Strategic legal tactics — Based on our in-depth knowledge of the court system and years of experience, we develop thorough legal strategies designed to produce results.

We understand that a serious accident can throw your life off track. It’s our mission to provide comprehensive and vigorous legal services both in and out of the courtroom so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

Aggressive law firm assists injured New Yorkers

Based in Garden City, our New York law firm handles personal injury cases involving:

  • All car and trucking accidents — Because of their size and weight in comparison to other vehicles on the road, trucking accidents can be among the most serious, potentially causing catastrophic injuries that result in permanent disability. Whether you were in an accident involving another car or a truck, we won’t stop fighting on behalf of our clients until we secure funds that justly compensate them.
  • Pedestrian accidents — In a bustling city like this, pedestrian accidents are often caused by negligent car or motorcycle drivers. Our firm represents individuals who were injured while walking on a New York sidewalk or street.
  • Slip and fall — A slip and fall accident can cause costly injuries. We can help you receive the compensation you deserve.
  • Construction accidents — We handle claims involving construction accidents for workers injured on commercial and residential premises from falls from ladders, scaffolds and other heights as well as injuries from machines and products.
  • Wrongful death — No family should be deprived of their loved one because of an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or intentional act. For wrongful death cases, we provide the assertive representation surviving family members deserve to demand justice on behalf of their deceased loved one.
  • Medical malpractice — Individuals trust healthcare professionals to make appropriate care decisions. When that trust is breached and injuries result, we provide strong legal representation for medical malpractice lawsuits.

No matter what type of accident caused your injuries, you can count on our law firm to implement the effective legal strategies you need.

We and our associates will also represent you on real estate matters and divorce matters.
