Gary P. Falkowitz is the Managing Partner and Founding Attorney of The Falkowitz Law Firm PLLC‚ one of the premiere personal injury law firms in New York. Gary received his J.D., in 2005 from St. John's University School of Law, where he was a member of the Senior Board of the Moot Court Honor Society. After law school, Gary served as an Assistant District Attorney with the Kings County District Attorney's Office, where he sought justice on behalf of the Kings County community. Thereafter, he briefly represented hospitals and doctors from medical malpractice claims. During his tenure at one of the top medical malpractice firms in New York City, Gary realized that his services were needed by those individuals that did not have the resources to obtain the justice that they deserved. As a result, he decided to dedicate all of his efforts to representing those individuals who were seriously injured due to motor vehicle accidents‚ construction accidents, medical malpractice, product liability and, to put it simply, the negligent acts of others. 

Gary is a member of the New York and New Jersey Bar Associations and was most recently honored as a Top 100 Trial Attorney by the National Trial Lawyers.

Gary is a husband to a loving and caring wife and father to three wonderful children. He and his family are actively involved in their community, where Gary serves as a Village Prosecutor. Gary believes that family always comes first and he hopes to instill in his children that with hard work, anything can be accomplished.

Superhero of an attorney!
Classifying Gary Falkowitz as a superhero when it comes to personal injury attorneys, is an understatement. Prior to him helping me with my own personal injury case, Gary supported the mother of past client's and a long-time friend in their own personal injury cases. In both instances, I heard nothing but incredible praise about Gary and his amazing team! While, I would have preferred to never have use his services personally, when I was involved in a biking accident, Gary was of course the first person that I turned to and I am very grateful that I did! As a Realtor who prides myself on exceptional service and only recommending people that I truly admire, I am happy to write this testimonial for him!

Thank You Gary!
Gary helped me get my car fixed and then get me paid for my broke leg. I got hit by a idiot who was probaly on drugs. I saw Gary on Google after the crash and when i called him he came to the hospital. Gary told me what I need to do and I did what he told me to. A few months and I got my money. Gary is New Yorks best lawyer!

Immediately got to work
Looking for a lawyer after an accident can be a scary thing. You need assistance right away and you want to find someone that you can trust. The same day I made the call I was assured that I was in good hands. A meeting was set up and after seeing the teams professionalism, attentivness and care and concern, I asked them to represent my case. So happy with my case outcome and the treatment I received from everyone on the team.

Highly Reccomend
I was nervous about starting a lawsuit. I knew that my injury was caused by someone else's mistake but I had no idea what to do about it and dealing directly with the insurance company was really stressful. After speaking with Gary and hearing about how his firm handles cases like mine, he made me feel really comfortable about going forward. Not only was he reliable but he was really successful. Scott

Relieved
I can't tell you how happy I was when I was given Gary's phone number. I was in a serious accident at work and was scared that I had not found a lawyer over the years who would take care of me and walk me thru each and every process. Whether it were day or night Gary was available for me to answer my questions or to help me understand what was going on with my case. He understood my concern and answered all my questions with out hesitation and most importantly without criticism as to how dumb my question might have been. Even though my case has ended he still follows up with me to see how I am doing. For that reason alone I would recommend him. I never once felt like a client but as if he made me part of his family. And he never treated my case as another case, he made me feel like he was fighting his own case. For that I am forever grateful.
