This 10th edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” uses the same ranking methodology used in the 9 previous years. Rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process. Lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed; therefore inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
Our firm which is celebrating its 100 year anniversary this month has built its top reputation on its dedication, sensitivity and commitment to personal service
Specializing in catastrophic personal injury cases, our Manhattan personal injury law firm only accepts about 100 cases every year. This concentrated focus allows for the meticulous trial preparation such substantial cases require, and ensures that tort victims receive reasonable and just compensation for the full measure of their damages.
Every year our results speak for themselves. Among this year’s outstanding achievements, our partner Howard Hershenhorn was named Lawyer of the Year 2020 for Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs in New York City by Best Lawyers. Howard and Diana Carnemolla obtained a $85 million verdict for a pedestrian who was hit by a bus. This verdict was the highest jury verdict in New York State in 2018. Our managing partner, Ben Rubinowitz, was named a Top 10 Lawyer in NYC by Super Lawyers. Earlier this year, Ben Rubinowitz and Richard Steigman obtained a record setting $59 million verdict for a 16 year old student who suffered devastating burns in a botched chemistry experiment. Also a few months ago, Governor Cuomo signed the New York Child Victim Act into law and our dedicated sexual abuse attorneys have been very active in helping NYC child victims of sexual abuse. Recently, Ben Rubinowitz and Peter Saghir obtained a historic $27.5 million church sex abuse settlement.
