About me

Who I Am:
I'm a New York City Personal Injury Lawyer & Construction Accident Attorney & we trial lawyers love the battle, at least we should...I've been lucky enough to be recognized for my trial and appeal skills and results by The Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers, National Law Journal's Hall of Fame, The Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Law Dragon and Avvo superb rated.

The fact that I have been able to change the lives of injured accident victims when they needed it the most, is perhaps my greatest source of pride. There is nothing quite like the smile on one of my New York injured client's faces or the hug from a construction worker, who fell from a ladder or a scaffold, when its all said and done, whether at the end of a trial or when you give them their check.

I've been and continue to be selected to lecture about construction accident law by the New York State Trial Lawyers Association and Continue as the Chair of its Labor Law Committee, committed to keeping the laws that protect workers strong.

Who I Help:
Whether the client was a victim of medical malpractice, auto accident, truck accident, fall down in a building or on the sidewalk or a victim of police brutality, excessive force or other civil rights violation or hurt from a bad drug they are all deserving of justice and I love to dispense justice.

How I Help:
Over 30 years of trials and appellate arguments have resulted in dozens of multi-million dollar results for my clients many of which have been listed in The New York Law Journal's Top Verdicts in New York.

What makes me and my firm different is that I understand that my clients come first, first all the time. I know my clients are seriously injured and need and want to be treated like I would want to be treated. What my clients only learn at the end is that we achieve great results in cases where that seems difficult or even unlikely. We don't settle because it's easier.
