We have been successful in resolving our clients' cases 99% of the time.  We have an established track record of obtaining high-value settlements and million-dollar jury verdicts for our clients and their families. Our NYC injury attorneys charge no fee unless we win your motor vehicle accident, trip and fall or medical malpractice case. New Yorkers have trusted us for more than 30 years because our lawyers possess the skill and knowledge to obtain the results you expect. Injured persons dealing with a serious personal injury claim need aggressive NYC lawyers willing to fight to win for them.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.

Honest, Compassionate, Experienced, Expert
I met Pete maybe 30 years ago, before I even attended law school. He always was there for me, while in law school, after, and working in conjunction with me on coming up with innovate legal solutions to complex problems. Pete is selfless, diligent, strong, and capable. He is that rare fusion of strength and empathy. Some lawyers appear too kind and some seem them as weak. Some seem so strong they lack any humanity and people are turned off by them. Pete has both qualities, a fighter who cares, and can connect with his clients, the juries, the judge and even opposing counsel. I have referred several clients to Pete, and will continue to do so in the future. If you need legal help, I hope you are lucky enough to retain Pete.

I had the opportunity to work in Peter’s office for about two years. He is an outstanding attorney who has 30+ years of experience practicing law. During my time working with Peter, I witnessed the amount of time and dedication he puts into each case. He holds himself and those who work with him to a high standard to ensure that each of his clients receive the most favorable outcome. He is very meticulous, compassionate, and committed to achieving the best possible results for his clients. I would highly recommend Peter and his team to anyone seeking legal representation.

A reliable, knowledgeable and professional attorney
I've hired Peter DeFilippis multiple times since the 1990s. He's my go-to guy for a variety of legal matters. He's provided helpful legal advice for me in the areas of taxes, bankruptcy, immigration, not-for-profit corporations and for-profit corporations. He and his firm are consistently reliable, competent and affordable. In addition, Peter is friendly, funny and easy-going. In over 20 years as a client of his, I've had a very good experience.

Very Satified
Peter came highly recommend to me by a very good friend of mine. I hired him for my daughters personal injury case. Every step of the way, he was very professional, clear, and concise about what his goals were and what our expectations should be regarding the case. His experience and extensive knowledge about the law was very reassuring to me as well. I would definitely recommend Peter to friends and family as I was pleased with the outcome of the case.

Mr. DeFilippis was retained to represent in an automobile accident case. He came highly recommended and I must say he superseded my expectations. He was very knowledgeable and kept me informed every step of the way. He was always available to take my calls and answered all of my questions. I was very satisfied with the services his law firm provided and will definitely recommend him to others.
