When you experience an injury, everything can change. With many years of experience litigating on my clients' behalf, I will give you the confidence to focus on recovering, instead of finding yourself overwhelmed and worried about your injury or litigation.
I was selected as a "Rising Star" for 2014 and 2015 by Super Lawyers.
While up to 5 percent of the lawyers in New York are named to Super Lawyers, only 2.5 percent are named to Rising Stars.
My practice represents people who have been injured due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, business, government agency, doctor, hospital, nursing home, or other organization. I personally investigate each case and stay in personal contact with my clients. No attorney fee is collected on any injury case until I obtain a verdict or settlement.
I also represent individuals, corporations, or other groups who require aggressive defense and protection of their rights, either in a criminal setting or general litigation. I am also a Mediator/Arbitrator with the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York.
We believe in the full protection of client's rights, regardless of citizenship. status. nationality, or other unique qualities. Our staff is fluent in Spanish [Espanol] and we provide translators for speakers of all other languages.
I am also a Better Business Bureau Accredited business.
