About me

I have been practicing law for over 40 years and have represented thousands of clients who have suffered injuries as a result of an accident or medical malpractice, and I have a significant amount of successful results.  I have assembled an experienced staff of lawyers and paralegals who understand that when you are in an accident or are injured by malpractice that you have many problems that you never had before and they are ready to help.  We will process your case quickly and we can even come to the client in their home or hospital room.  There will be no unanswered calls to our office.  Our word is our bond.

We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients.  Our results speak for themself.  We can provide you with many articles that have been written about our firm and the results that were achieved for our clients. 

We can be contacted anytime.  24 hours a day- 7 days a week at (212)545-7373 or 1-800-967-5496 (1-800-WORK4YOU)

    Over the past 30 years, I have worked as appellate counsel and special counsel to hundreds of NY attorneys. Kenneth Wilhelm and the attorneys in his firm are extremely experienced, skillful, and knowledgeable. They aggressively and zealously represent their clients and, if necessary, will take a case to trial or pursue an appeal in order to maximize their clients' recoveries. They always puts their clients' best interests first. I strongly recommend Mr. Wilhelm and his Firm.
