Levy Phillips & Konigsberg, LLP
800 Third Avenue, 11th floor
New York, NY 10022
For over 25 years, Levy Phillips & Konigsberg has been a national leader in complex personal injury litigation, consistently obtaining multi-million dollar results for catastrophically injured victims of occupational and environmental torts, drug and product liability, construction accidents and medical malpractice. The Medical Malpractice Team, led by partner Diane Paolicelli, along with attorneys Danielle George and Daniel Woodard, approaches each case with one goal in mind: to obtain justice in the form of top compensation, so the client and family can live out their lives with dignity and comfort, even in the face of tragic illness.
The members of the Medical Malpractice Team are each accomplished trial lawyers, who know that the way to maximize recovery is to work up each case as if it were going to trial. Their caseload is selective, so that they can devote the necessary resources and energy to securing outstanding results for the most grievously injured. They have obtained life-changing results for stroke survivors, quadriplegics, brain damaged children, and cancer victims, such as the two featured here in New York’s top verdicts and settlements for 2012.
No case is too challenging or complex. The firm’s lawyers routinely take on cutting-edge litigation – cases that other lawyers turn away. A special emphasis in recent years has been the protection of children born with debilitating birth defects due to in utero exposure to pesticides, chemicals, and heavy metals. Says Ms. Paolicelli, “If we hit institutional defendants where it hurts – in their pocketbooks – perhaps we can persuade them to act responsibly, and make this world a safer place for all our children.”
Ogen & Sedaghati, P.C.
The team of Eitan Ogen and Natalie Sedaghati have an impressive proven record of multiple 7-figure and 6-figure verdicts and settlements, many for non-surgical, “soft tissue” disputed cases and/ or with problematic liability scenarios. We are pleased to once again have some of our recent “soft tissue” verdicts honored in this year’s NY Top Verdicts & Settlements section.
We are also proud to announce that Natalie Sedaghati is one of only nine female attorneys selected as a Super Lawyer in New York in the practice area of Personal Injury.
The Sanders Firm
100 Herricks Road
Mineola, NY 11501
Since its inception in 1967, The Sanders Firm has become one of the country’s premier personal injury, mass tort, and medical malpractice firms, with a combined staff of more than 50 attorneys, paralegals, secretaries, and clerks, who serve more than 35,000 clients in New York alone. In addition, the firm’s national scope allows it to represent clients across the country and abroad. “We have a track record of achieving exceptional results for accident victims and those who have suffered from the improper production and marketing of pharmaceuticals and medical devices,” says Founding Partner Stanley Sanders. “When it comes to our clients, we follow the highest standards of care.”
The firm’s attorneys are known as “lawyers’ lawyers,” having recovered on hundreds of cases this year that were referred by dozens of different law firms throughout the country. Indeed, the firm has a reputation for working extensively with other attorneys—accepting referrals from them, assisting them in litigation and specific practice areas, and absorbing their practices altogether. Over the past decade, The Sanders Firm has experienced exponential growth, in part because of the frequency of referrals, merger offers, and counsel requests that it receives from other attorneys and law firms. In 2005, The Sanders Firm merged with a mass-tort litigation firm founded by Senior Partner Marc D. Grossman. Most recently, the firm added Edward J. Nitkewicz and his legal practice—a small litigation practice concentrating on the representation of personal injury plaintiffs.
