Mr Lustig recently settled a case for me involving a construction accident. I was a union electrician who was hurt badly on the job when I was hit by falling construction debris. I found Mr Lustig to be extremely knowledgeable on construction matters as well as my medical issues. He is a confident and no-nonsense lawyer who obtained an excellent result for me. You cannot find a better personal injury lawyer in New York.
Last year Mr. Lustig represented my husband and me in a trial in Manhattan. My husband had been injured when he fell off a ladder after receiving an electrical shock. Mr. Lustig's preparation for the trial was intense and he was thoroughly prepared. He clearly had the respect of the judge and the defense lawyer and the jury paid very close attention to his every word. He is smart, serious and very tough in a quiet, confident way. The verdict was many times what the insurance company had offered and many times what my husband and I thought we could ever hope for. Mr. Lustig will always be in our prayers. We owe him so much and recommend him highly. He is very special as a lawyer and as a person.
Fifteen years after successfully representing me in a car accident case that settled for a substantial amount of money, I refered my son to Mr. Lustig for an extremely serious injury that occured in an accident on a construction site. In the middle of trial my son's case settled for well into the millions of dollars. I was there in court every day and was consistently impressed with Mr. Lustig's presentation. He was extremely well prepared, totally focused and an exceptionally strong, smart and articulate advocate. At all times, he had a calm and commanding presense and was a complete gentleman with the judge, the defense lawyers and the witnesses. His cross examination of the defense witnesses was masterful and better than lawyer shows on TV. My son, his wife and I spoke to the jurors afterwards and they all were very impressed as well and were all disappointed that the case settled because they wanted to hear his summation! I must add that thoughout the entire time he represented my son, both he and his partner, Mitchell Sassower, kept us fully informed as to the progress and status of the case. They both are exceptional lawyers and exceptionally good people.
