Terrific Lawyer
From my first meeting with Roberta Ashkin, I knew I had found the right lawyer for me. She took the time to understand my injuries and I knew she believed in my case. She answered all my questions and kept me fully informed throughout and guided me through a very stressful time. I would recommend Roberta to anyone who has a medical malpractice. She went above and beyond and I was very pleased with the settlement she negotiated for me. You will be in good hands.

The best such personal care.
I engaged Roberta Ashkin after an auto accident when a tractor trailer hit my car and I sustained complicated injuries including a herniated disk in my neck. Not only did she negotiate a substantial settlement she was a constant source of support and guidance throughout the process. Years later I was on an escalator in a department store that came to a sudden halt as it was descending. My wrist and ankle felt immediately sore. But I thought it was just a temporary effect. But before I left the store, I called Roberta and she told me not to leave until I filed an incident report. In the days and weeks that followed I found that my pain and mobility decreased significantly. Roberta was now able to hold the escalator company accountable.

Excellent Attorney
I highly recommend that you work with Roberta Ashkin if you need legal counsel. Roberta represented me on two legal matters and ensured I had an excellent outcome. In my opinion what makes makes Roberta stand out from other attorneys is her personal involvement with her clients. Roberta's knowledge, hard work, professionalism and empathy for her clients makes her an outstanding attorney. I have recommended Roberta to family and friends and they have also been very pleased working with her.

Very Helpful
Ms. Ashkin was very helpful in clarifying whether or not I had "a case" of medical malpractice when my mother passed away. She was thorough, knowledgeable and empathetic. While my family eventually decided not to pursue legal action, consulting her helped enormously in understanding our options.

One of the best Lawyers in all of New York
I have utilized Ms. Ashkin's services on several occasions and can say, without hesitation, that she is the ultimate in integrity, professionalism and legal expertise--and a kind and empathetic person as well. I highly recommend her.
