Since U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “Best Law Firms” was launched in 2010, Gair, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz Bloom Hershenhorn, Steigman and Mackauf has been recognized yearly through a rigorous evaluation process as a New York City Tier 1 firm in the above practices.
Since it was founded in 1919, our Manhattan based personal injury law firm has enjoyed a long tradition of success for our clients. We operate a “boutique firm” and limit our practice to 80 to 100 substantial and serious tort cases a year. Our philosophy is that by limiting the amount of cases we are accepting, we are able to put more time and more resources than other law firms and obtain the best result for our clients.
Results speak for themselves and so far the sum of verdicts and settlements obtained by our attorneys is estimated at $2 billion dollars.
Among the most recent notable results, our personal injury attorneys set a new record for a pain and suffering award in NY State when the Appellate Division of New York affirmed a record 29 million for a student who suffered devastating burn injuries during a botched chemical experiment at a New York City high school.
Our attorneys were also able to change the doctrine of law known as “zone of danger” in which an immediate family member witnessing another family member getting injured or killed can obtain compensation for emotional distress. In New York, grandparents were not recognized immediate family until our attorneys challenged this law through all levels of the New York State courts and won. Our attorneys were representing a grand mother who witnessed her granddaughter getting fatally crushed by fallen debris and recognized this was an injustice that had to be rectified.
