Since 1986 Eric Turkewitz has represented victims
of medical malpractice and other
acts of negligence resulting in significant injuries before judges and
juries. His representation has
stretched across numerous medical fields.
He has tried cases both for The Turkewitz Law Firm as well as others.
The Turkewitz Law Firm also sponsors the New York Personal Injury Law Blog to discuss issues of medical malpractice, personal injury, appellate decisions, cases of interest in the press, and public policy regarding the justice system.
In July 2008, Incisive Media — publisher of the New York Law Journal, American Lawyer and the National Law Journal, among its many publications — added the blog to its roster of 30 affiliated blogs at Law.com. Turkewitz’s publication thus became the first personal injury blog in the nation to become affiliated with Law.com.
In November 2008 the American Bar Association Journal, read by half the nation's one million lawyers, selected the New York Personal Injury Law Blog as one of the nation's top 100 law blogs. It was the only plaintiff's oriented personal injury blog in the country to receive this honor. It was honored again in both 2009 and 2010 as one of the top 100 law blogs in the country.

I endorse this lawyer. Like his father before him, Eric is a formidable malpractice attorney. One of the very best in the State of New York. In addition, Eric also competently handles other types of personal injury cases with equal skill, dedication and success. If I were to be the victim of medical malpractice in New York, Eric would be on the very short list of lawyers I would be comfortable having handle my case. I highly endorse and recommend him.
