HUSBAND ~ GRANDFATHER ~ ATTORNEY

  • With over 40 years of experience practicing law, Mr. Orlow has the extensive knowledge necessary to represent his clients in any personal injury . Orlow practices in all areas of plaintiff’s personal injury/negligence, including injuries related to construction accidents, lead paint poisoning, assaults and rapes in premises, premises accidents, slip and fall accidents, automobile and other motor vehicle accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, and civil rights matters involving police misconduct, false arrest and excessive force.

Prior to establishing his New York personal injury law firm in 1981, Steven Orlow was an Assistant District Attorney in Kings County, New York and then Counsel to the county executive of Queens County, New York. In 1980, Steven Orlow was elected to the City Council to the then existing position of "Council Member-At-Large" representing the almost two million people of Queens County in the City Council. During the latter year of his Council membership, Mr. Orlow established his law practice and, soon after establishing the practice, left the City Council to concentrate in the area of personal injury in his private practice.

Steven Orlow's activities have extended beyond his law practice to active involvement in a variety of community activities both professional and charitable in nature. In the area of professional involvement, Mr. Orlow is, or has been, a member of the Board of Directors of the Brandeis Association of Queens County, the New York State Bar Association, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America and the New York State Trial Lawyers Association. Mr. Orlow has also been very active in the Queens County Bar Association, having served for many years as a member of its Board of Managers and then, consecutively, as treasurer, vice president, president elect and, in 2008, being elected to the presidency of the Queens County Bar Association.

Mr. Orlow has been married to his wife, Susan, since 1970 and together they have three children and five grandchildren. Two of Mr. Orlow's children, Brian and Adam, are his partners in the law practice, each having been practicing with their father for over a decade.

Mr. Orlow is particularly proud of the opinions held by former clients of his, which confirm what he had hoped would be his firm's devotion to the high standards of the legal profession and their application in its everyday practice. A review of the client testimonials  will reflect this aspect of Steven Orlow's outlook, to which his firm strives in its practice of law.

Areas of practice: plaintiff's personal injury/negligence which includes all aspects of injuries to individuals including construction accidents, lead paint poisoning, assaults and rapes in premises, premises accidents, slip and fall accidents, automobile and other motor vehicle accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, civil rights matters involving police misconduct, false arrest and excessive force.
