About me

I am a complete believer in personal service.  We are very selective in the cases that we accept, because we want to maximize our efforts on the cases that we have.  We do not believe in quantity, and as a result, we are able to provide quality service to the people whom we represent.

  • Martin Harvey Cohen

    Five years ago, I referred a nursing home negligence case to Dan Cytryn. I came to know Dan and his firm throughout the course of the proceedings and marveled as Cytryn & Velazquez carved through layers of corporate entities to pursue a claim against the ultimate parent corporation. The case was settled with an extremely satisfactory result for the plaintiffs. In forty-two years of law practice, I have rarely seen such extraordinary dedication, professionalism, technical skill and diligence, all in one package.
