Eric Turkewitz impressed me most with his willingness to help above and beyond any request I could make of him. He is patient with those he represents, especially in reviewing the finer points of New York law (and its occasional eccentricities.)
Eric was masterful at knowing and executing on the details that make up a successful case, instead of just the broad points that make someone believe "my cause is just." Simultaneously, he was downright generous with his time on our case; he answered queries and provided comment at all hours, far beyond the call of reasonable need.
Eric is a consummate professional who cares about what he does, will fight for someone, and who gets things done. I would never hesitate to hire or recommend his services to anyone.

Eric really knows his stuff - which is critical in the chaos that is civil litigation in New York. He represented me and my business in a defamation matter; I was out-of-state and needed local counsel. He did a great job navigating the litigation and keeping me informed throughout.
That may seem like a little thing, but many, many lawyers are really bad when it comes to proactively communicating with clients. I've hired lawyers all over the country for business litigation matters for nearly 20 years now, and Eric is right up there with the best I've worked with when it comes to professionalism, diligence and responsiveness. Highly recommend.

A few years back, there was a prominent and successful thoroughbred race horse named "Masterful Advocate." Eric Turkewitz, who represented me - successfully - in the defense of an elaborate speech and defamation case, is a thoroughbred and a masterful advocate: attentive, prepared, highly capable, entirely ethical, unstinting in his devotion to his clients' cause. As an attorney myself, I view Eric Turkewitz as a shining example, a model of what an attorney should do and should be.

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.
