"Our courts have their faults, as does any human institution, but in this country our courts are the great levelers, and in our courts all men are created equal."
Some of the more interesting cases that were favorably settled or went to verdict are in the Cases of Note section, or in the left sidebar. The summaries are published here for your reference to show the nature of the claims, the nature of the defenses, and the ultimate recovery. Since no two cases will be exactly the same, you should understand that these are mere examples.
Over the years, Mr. Turkewitz has examined hundreds of medical witnesses under oath in New York court proceedings, litigating across a wide spectrum of medical specialties. He has done this both for his own firm as well as for other attorneys that have sought him out.
Mr. Turkewitz also represented victims of the September 11 attack as a member of Trial Lawyers Care, the largest free legal services project in American history.
The cases we accept are often complex and time consuming. Defendants will often do everything possible to slow the legal process. This necessitates being highly selective in deciding which cases to undertake.
The firm provides a consultation at no charge. As needed, we speak with witnesses, obtain records, and consult with experts that are specialists with outstanding credentials in their fields, in order to determine if a suit should be brought. The firm generally covers the New York counties of Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Nassau, Westchester, Suffolk, Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess, Orange and Albany. For serious cases we will travel elsewhere.
If you are in need of a lawyer – and that's the only logical reason to be on this site – here are some things to consider:
The Turkewitz Law Firm also sponsors the New York Personal Injury Law Blog to discuss issues of medical malpractice, personal injury, appellate decisions, cases of interest in the press, and public policy regarding the justice system.
In July 2008, ALM (American Legal Media) — publisher of the New York Law Journal, American Lawyer and the National Law Journal among its many publications — added the blog to its roster of 30 affiliated blogs at Law.com. Turkewitz's publication thus became the first personal injury blog in the nation to become affiliated with Law.com.
In November 2008 the American Bar Association Journal, read by half the nation's one million lawyers, selected the New York Personal Injury Law Blog as one of the nation's top 100 law blogs. It was the only plaintiff's oriented personal injury blog in the country to receive this honor. The New York Personal Injury Law Blog was honored again in 2009 as one of the top law 100 blogs, for a third time in 2010, a fourth time in 2011, and a fifth time in 2012. At this point his law blog was inducted into the American Bar Association's new Blawg Hall of Fame, one of only 10 law blogs in the nation to be so honored.
This website is the firm's electronic brochure, a form of attorney advertising. You only found this site because you looked for us. We do not engage in television, radio, print, mail or spam email-advertising campaigns of any kind. Frankly, we find many of them somewhat offensive. Mr. Turkewitz does, however sponsor his son's youth baseball team. Because that kind of advertising we like. You can read more about our views on attorney advertising here.
Throughout this site you will see examples of cases we have handled. Since all cases are different, and legal authority may change from year to year, it is important to remember that prior results cannot, and do not, guarantee or predict similar outcomes with respect to any future matter, including yours, in which any lawyer or law firm may be retained.
