About Paul

Learn Paul’s areas of practice.

Paul S. Zilberfein was admitted to practice law in 1993 and has been actively representing clients in lawsuits and arbitrations since that time. When faced with legal issues, whether related to your business or your personal life, you need an experienced lawyer - one with the sophistication and resources to handle your case, as well as personally guide you through the resolution of your issues. If you are involved in a dispute which requires the services of a seasoned litigator or litigation adviser, Paul can provide the type of counsel and representation that only many years of the practice of law and litigation can give. Paul's experience includes working as an associate in the law firm of F. Lee Bailey and Aaron J. Broder, where he did extensive trial preparation in many high-profile cases including the Pan Am Flight 103 disaster over Lockerbie. That litigation resulted in a record breaking $19 million verdict.

Paul's extensive experience in defending against personal injury lawsuits has made him that much better at fighting to achieve excellent results for his clients on the plaintiff's side. Likewise, Paul is also very experienced in contract/real estate litigation as well, which makes him a valuable asset to almost any client.
