About me


I am a experienced attorney focusing exclusively on serious plaintiffs personal injury matters. I have been practicing law since 1991. I am a founding partner and managing attorney at Levine and Wiss with offices in West Hempstead and Brooklyn.


I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from SUNY Stony Brook and a Juris Doctorate from New York law School in Manhattan. I have worked at one of New York Cities premiere plaintiffs personal injury law firms and had my own law firm for many years. I was a law intern at the United States Attorneys Office, Southern District of New York and the United States Bankruptcy Court, Eastern District of New York.


I am a active member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, The New York Academy of Trial Lawyers, the Queens and Nassau County Bar Associations as well as the Nassau lawyers Association of long Island.  I am dedicated to defending the rights of injured accident victims.  I fight for the money you deserve.  Let my experience work for you.
