air, Gair, Conason, Rubinowitz, Bloom, Hershenhorn, Steigman & Mackauf (GGCRBHS&M) is one of the most successful and longstanding plaintiff’s law firms in the country. Based in Manhattan but representing clients throughout New York and New Jersey, the firm specializes in the most serious and significant personalinjury, wrongful-death, and general negligence cases. The end of the decade was particularly special, as GGCRBHS&M celebrated its 100 th anniversary in 2019 and continued to make national headlines with its most recent verdicts and settlements—three of which totaled more than $170 million for injury victims. In July 2019, managing partner Ben Rubinowitz and partner Richard Steigman obtained a $59.2 million verdict— one of the largest of the year—for a former New York City high school student who was disfigured during a botched

chemistry experiment. The plaintiff, who was 16 years old at the time of the accident, suffered third-degree burns to his neck and face. In December 2018, partners Howard Hershenhorn and Diana Carnemolla obtained an $85 million jury verdict for a pedestrian who sustained catastrophic injuries after being hit by a double-decker tour bus in downtown Manhattan. This was the largest verdict obtained in New York state and the 25th largest verdict obtained in the US in 2018. In September 2018, Rubinowitz and partner Peter Saghir obtained a record-setting $27.5 million settlement from the Diocese of Brooklyn on behalf of four boys who were sexually abused by a religion teacher. This is the largest settlement ever awarded to sexual abuse victims in New York. These results extend the firm’s successful track record of results achieved in and out of the courtroom. In the last

INCE ITS FOUNDING, Block O’Toole & Murphy has become known for defying expectations in some of New York’s most challenging constructionaccident and personal-injury cases. The firm has to date obtained more than 300 results in excess of a million dollars and over a billion dollars in total recoveries for its clients—an achievement that speaks to the experience and vision of the firm’s name partners—Jeffrey Block, Daniel O’Toole, and Stephen Murphy. Indeed, Block, O’Toole, and Murphy have grown the firm into one of New York’s premier personal injury law firms by combining experience from their distinct career paths: Block has handled plaintiffs’ civil trial work from the start; O’Toole transitioned to the area after working on the defense side and learning their strategies; and Murphy gained valuable courtroom experience after years as a successful homicide prosecutor.

“Each partner brings something different to the table, and that diversity of life and professional experiences benefits our clients because we can provide them with comprehensive knowledge in all areas of personal injury,” Block says. Block O’Toole & Murphy regularly takes on some of the most significant wrongful-death actions, motor-vehicle accidents, tractortrailer collisions, construction accidents, and other personal injury cases. As part of its approach, the firm limits its caseload to only a select number of the most serious matters so it can focus on helping each individual client. The result is several record-breaking recoveries, including the largest non-medical malpractice injury verdict in New York ($110 million), the largest non-medical malpractice injury verdict in Long Island ($32.7 million), and the second largest verdict in the New York State Court of Claims ($20.1 million). “Our clients deserve every last dollar they are entitled to under the law,” O’Toole says. “And our track record is important because

these results make defense attorneys and insurance companies take notice and assign a higher dollar value to our cases.” Beyond its legal work, Block O’Toole & Murphy pursues its mission of helping those in need by sponsoring a number of charities, including the Frances Pope Memorial Foundation and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This year, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital named Murphy as its national 2019 event chairperson for his 10-plus years of work organizing the annual St. Jude autumn wine tasting fundraising event, which is also sponsored by Block O’Toole & Murphy. Since 2007, this event has raised more than $6 million toward ending childhood cancer. The 2019 event alone raised more than $820,000. “We set ourselves increasingly ambitious goals to meet, both in terms of our legal work and our charitable endeavors,” Murphy notes. “It’s gratifying to see how every year we continue to exceed those goals.”

VER THE PAST 60 YEARS, the lawyers of Kramer, Dillof, Livingston & Moore (KDLM) have helped victims of medical malpractice, negligence, wrongful death, and personal injury rebuild their lives following devastating negligence and injuries. Along the way, their significant victories have set records in the area of plaintiffs’ litigation. Senior partner Thomas Moore, who has obtained more than 90 jury verdicts over his career, is believed to have won more jury verdicts in excess of $1 million than any other lawyer in American history. And the firm’s other senior partner, Judith Livingston, is thought to have obtained more jury verdicts than any other female litigator in the country, with more than 30 jury verdicts in excess of $1 million.

• Catastrophic Injury • Medical Malpractice • Wrongful Death • Product Liability

“We bring a thorough and selective approach to the litigation process, where no stone goes unturned in our pursuit of justice,” says Livingston of the firm’s success. “We see every case as an opportunity to ensure the court system works and people are provided with the resources they need to put their lives back together.” In total, KDLM has achieved more than $1 billion in recoveries, thanks to record results like a 2014 jury award of $172 million in a case where a 29-year-old woman was left paralyzed and mute due to the negligence of the EMTs who responded to her mother’s 911 call. It was one of the largest verdicts ever awarded in New York state and one of the largest in the United States for that year.


Given this history at trial, Livingston and Moore are both members of the Inner Circle of Advocates—an elite group of the top 100 trial attorneys in the country—and Livingston is the first woman and youngest person ever invited to join the prestigious group. They are also regularly included in The Best Lawyers in America © along with partner Matthew Gaier and managing partner Carmine A. Rubino. Both Livingston and Moore have been named as a Best Lawyers ® New York City “Lawyer of the Year” in previous years for medical malpractice law in 2011 and 2013 and plaintiffs’ personal injury litigation in 2012, respectively. Beyond winning money for their clients, the firm’s attorneys are very active in achieving fair and just laws for

personal injury victims (a famous Moore trial resulted in the Libby Law legislation, which regulates hospital practices to prevent negligence caused by fatigue). The firm also participates in a number of charities, including the Judges and Lawyers Breast Cancer Alert, for which Livingston previously served as co-president. And both Moore and Livingston remain actively involved at their respective alma maters, Fordham Law School and Hofstra Law School. “The lawyers here have a great deal of compassion for what our clients have been through,” notes Moore. “The types of cases we handle may differ, but all our clients have one thing in common: the need to find justice after suffering debilitating injury and loss.”

MORELLI L AW FIRM

Record-setting results, high-profile cases, and courtroom prowess

ORELLI LAW FIRM is one of the most successful firms M in the country, representing clients in cases ranging from personal injury, to employment discrimination, medical

malpractice, product liability, and much more. Regardless of the practice area, the firm has distinguished itself by consistently delivering impressive results, totaling more than a billion dollars in damages, whether in the courtroom or through settlements.

Notable firm results include: • $95M verdict against Aaron’s Inc. in what was the largest single-plaintiff sexual harassment verdict ever • $62M verdict for a construction worker who suffered a brain injury after falling from a roof • $41M verdict in a wrongful death case involving a misdiagnosis of a woman’s ectopic pregnancy • $22.5M in the largest vaccine verdict ever • $12M jury verdict for the estate of an 85-year-old man who was killed by an MTA bus


For the 2015 Amtrak derailment outside of Philadelphia that left eight dead and more than 200 injured, the firm played an instrumental role in convincing Congress to raise the cap on damages to pave the way for a $265M settlement. It was the largest passenger rail accident and settlement in U.S. history. Much of the firm’s success is linked to its willingness and ability to pursue trials. “We don’t chase quick settlements,” said Mr. Morelli, the founding partner of the firm. “When we take a case, we’re in it for the long haul, and because of our unprecedented success in the courtroom, companies take us seriously.” It’s that success in the courtroom that has enabled the firm to negotiate landmark settlements with companies like Walmart on behalf of Tracy Morgan and the United States Tennis Association (USTA) on behalf of Genie Bouchard, as well as resolve a case with MGM on behalf of the family of

Zynae Green, a 7-year-old girl who was electrocuted at the casino’s Maryland location. The firm is presently representing several victims and their families after three people were killed and two were critically injured in a tractor-trailer accident in Illinois this past summer. In addition, Morelli Law Firm represents over a thousand women in litigation against Johnson & Johnson, stemming from allegations that the company’s use of talcum powder caused their ovarian cancer. “From individual cases to complex multi-plaintiff ones, we have the resources, experience, and skill to achieve justice for our clients,” said Mr. Morelli. “We’re ready to go.”

GLK now has a newly formed practice area, handling cases involving #MeToo and Workplace Compliance. While the firm certainly cuts an imposing figure in courtrooms, partner Jeff S. Korek b e l ieve s i t s co m p a s sio n fo r i t s cl ie n t s — u n d e r s co re d by t h e f i r m’s co l l a b o r a t i ve culture — is what set s it apar t from others offering similar services. “We know, because we live it ever y day, that working together as a team is the best way to obtain results for clients, no matter the case,” says Korek, a past president of both the New York State Trial Law yers Association (NYSTLA) and the New York City Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates.

t he f ield of medical malpractice law, Simonson Goodman Platzer P.C. stands out among its peers. The leading firm covers a wide array of areas, including hospital negligence and misdiagnosis, birth injury, weight loss malpractice, and wrongful death, and it has successfully represented clients in substantial cases across New York and New Jersey. That’s because the firm’s partners—Paul Simonson, Edward Goodman, and Kenneth Platzer—are each formidable in their own right. With more than 45 years of experience as a medical malpractice attorney, Simonson has a stellar 98-percent success rate recovering money for his clients, winning more than $200 million to date. “We understand these are very difficult times in our clients’ lives,” Simonson says. “But with our skills and resources, we can guide clients through the complicated legal process of a medical malpractice or catastrophic injury case and ensure their dignity remains intact as we work to obtain the fair and just compensation they deserve.” This year, Simonson was named Best Lawyers ® 2019 New York City “Lawyer of the Year” for Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs, a top

honor awarded to only attorneys with the highest ratings in the Best Lawyers peer-review survey. “I am honored and grateful for the high rating bestowed on me by my fellow New York attorneys,” says Simonson. “I have always measured the quality of my legal services by the results I achieve for my clients, and I think this award speaks to my long track record on behalf of those seriously injured due to others’ errors and negligence.” Goodman has garnered his own accolades. In 2013, he was recognized by The Best Lawyers in America © for Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs. Platzer has been recognized for his outstanding legal knowledge, ethical standards, and judgment over his more than 30-year career helping clients reach successful verdicts in medical malpractice and personal injury cases. Simonson credits h is fir m’s outstanding reputation to the trialtested techniques and exceptional communication skills of his team, who “regularly go up against larger, insurance-backed defense firms with much higher attorney head counts and succeed.” Simonson says, “Given the individual and collective knowledge of our team, there is no malpractice, accident, or injury case that is too big or complex for us to handle.”

HEALTH CARE COVERAGE FOR ALL 9/11 VICTIMS

arasch McGarry Salzman & Penson: Michael Baracsh (Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs, 2019) has represented 9/11 victims who have had to fight for health care coverage as a result of exposure to the harmful contaminants from the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. In a new development, the health care coverage from the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund will be extended to students, teachers, and staff stemming from the extension to the law that was signed in July. “Everybody was exposed to the sa me toxic dust,” Barasch said. “It didn’t matter whether you were a responder or a student or a teacher or a downtown resident or office worker.” Barasch noted that many students are now being diagnosed with the same cancers as the first responder firefighters. The Department of Education and United Federation of Teachers are conducting a joint effort to contact thousands via letter, social media, and an information

event on October 28 to help raise awareness. Around 450,000 people will be eligible for lifetime medical care under the new program. The areas south of Houston Street were improperly given a breathable air rating by then-Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Christine Todd Whitman. It was revealed by later EPA inspections that Whitman and the agency did not have proper evidence to make that judgment. Rudy Giuliani, who was New York City’s mayor at the time, allowed over 20,000 students and staff to return to school just weeks after the buildings collapsed as many fires continued to burn and contaminated debris was being trucked out of the city. Barasch recently hosted an outreach effort in mid-September at his law firm. The event was headlined by comedian Jon Stewart, who has been one of the most prominent public advocates for the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. The fund will ensure compensation through 2090.

Everybody was exposed to the same toxic dusts.

IN THE NEWS NEW YORK HEADLINES

► Beveridge & Diamond: Michael Murphy (Environmental

Law, 2017) is representing the community of Floral Park in an effort to stop the development of a project in the Belmont Park area that would include a new arena for the New York Islanders. Both Mayor Dominick Longobardi and the residents of Floral Park feel that the project has ignored their concerns and could have serious detrimental effects on their environment as well as quality of life. Some of the concerns include a “flawed and deficient” traffic mitigation plan, an Elmont Long Island railroad station that would be developed adjacent to an elementary school, and the installation of two 30,000-gallon liquid petroleum tanks. In the lawsuit, Murphy alleges that a “coordinated effort among state officials to clear the path for NYAP’s proposal” was conducted before a request for proposal could be submitted by Empire State Development. The NYAP— New York Arena Partners—is made up of the Islanders franchise, the Wilpon Family, and the Oakview Group. In addition to the Floral Park lawsuit, the members of Belmont Park Community Coalition have stated that they will file their own lawsuit against the project.

Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady: Hal R. Lieberman (Ethics and Professional Responsibility Law, 2011) represented former police o f f i c e r a n d a t t o r n e y Way n e Thatcher, who has been suspended from practicing law for two years. Thatcher pleaded guilt y to a misdemeanor charge of forcible touching after a complaint from an Hal R. Lieberman imprisoned woman. The woman agreed to wear a disguised camera and recorded Thatcher committing the crimes that he had been accused of. At least nine other women had accused Thatcher of similar offenses. “Had she not come forward, I have full faith that this defendant would continue to abuse the people that sought help from him, abuse the powerless, abuse those who were in jail depending on him to help them,” said the district at torney at sentencing. Thatcher was sentenced to at least 45 days in jail.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP: Ethan Klingsberg (Corporate Law, 2013) has been hired by Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP. In their effort to become one of the upperechelon deal-making advisors in the United States, Freshfields will hire three members of Klinsberg’s team as they leave Ethan Klingsberg Clear y G ot tlieb S teen & Hamilton. “We are excited to be joining Freshfields’ blue chip platform,” Klingsberg said in a statement. “The service that we and our new colleagues at Freshfields will bring to clients promises to be awesome.” According to statistics from Bloomberg, Freshfields’ mergers and acquisitions practice was ranked 14th in the United States this year. The total revenue for the 114 deals they have completed is more than $205 billion.

Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton: E. Gail Suchman (Environmental Law; Energy Law, 2018) joined Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP as a partner in the firm’s real estate, land use, and environmental practice group. “Helping clients navigate environmental and energy issues is a key component of our real estate practice and Gail’s substantial knowledge and deep understanding in these areas complements and strengthens our existing capabilities. She’s a perfect addition to our growing presence on the East Coast,” said Nancy Scull, leader of the firm’s real estate, land use and environmental practice.

► UPDATE

A previous version of this article erroneously reported that Daniel Rodgers (Admiralty and Maritime Law, 2018) of Watson Farley & Williams represented a group of Montauk baymen and fishermen impacted by a wind farm deal. This section has since been retracted.

► Jay Goldberg: Jay Goldberg (Criminal Defense, 1989-

1990) is representing Patrick Allen who is accused of pointing a gun at police in Charleston, Staten Island. Allen and a co-defendant were spotted by officers who were responding to a shots fired call near a wooded area. When the two officers demanded the two men stop, Allen opened his jacket revealing body armor, then pulled a gun and cursed at them. The officers shot Allen several times in the vest before taking him in to custody. Allen’s co-defendant was later captured in the woods with an assault weapon and two handguns.

HEN HIGH-PROFILE defendants are facing the most stressful time in their lives, they often turn to attorney Peter Crean to handle their legal needs and protect their reputations. New York City’s 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” honoree in Legal Malpractice Law - Defendants, Peter Crean, defends New York’s top medical and legal professionals, major health systems, and university medical centers. Mr. Crean is also noted for successfully defending New York Hospital in the landmark Libby Zion case against claims of system-wide supervision failures that included residency training and sleep deprivation, as well as the Alex Rodriguez case against the New York Yankees. Crean’s over 35 years of malpractice defense experience has been critical to the successful defense of other malpractice lawyers. Mr. Crean’s reputation as a fierce defender of his medical professional malpractice clients has been recognized by his peers and is a clear indication of why they trust him to handle their own malpractice matters.

Reputation is something that Crean feels is one of the meaningful things that we as individuals own. Crean says, “Given the harmful impact a professional lawsuit can have, it is extremely important to myself and to my f irm to put everything we have into defending the reputations of our clients.” While Crean is certainly a prominent lawyer in the legal field, he is humbled that his peers recognized his diligent work. “It is a privilege to be in the company of legal leaders selected to Best Lawyers,” Crean states. The medical industry is obviously of great signif ica nce to Crea n’s professional life and is something dear to his heart outside of the off ice. Crean, who is intimately involved in the New York medical community, serves on the board of LiveOn NewYork, one of t he biggest organ-donor procurement orga n i z at ion s i n t he cou nt r y. Additionally, he served on the board of trustees for a hospital center and as chair of the hospital’s Quality Assurance Committee.

s a firm that regularly takes on some of the largest companies i n t he world , D ou g l a s & London has time and again proved its ability to secure justice in even the most challenging cases of negligence and fraud. For nearly two decades, the firm’s attorneys and staff have vigorously fought for the best results on behalf of its clients injured by a single event, such as a car accident or victims of medical malpractice, as well as for its clients who were injured in cases involving dangerous and harmful medications, defective medical devices and environmental toxic exposure. “Our firm strives to embody the principles and legal ethics that are so important to representing injured people against corporate America,” says Gary Douglas. “By making this our focus, we have achieved a track record of pioneering recoveries, including the first verdict in New York against the tobacco industry.” Since that verdict—a $20 million award for the death of a 58-year-old former smoker of Lucky Strike cigarettes—the f irm has continued to achieve record verdicts and settlements for its clients. Today, the firm has obtained more than $4 billion in recoveries, with some of its most notable wins including spearheading approximately $2 billion worth of settlements with Bayer Healthcare in the Yaz/Yasmin birth control multidistrict

There are many other significant seven- and eightfigure results achieved through pioneering verdicts and settlements. In recognition of these accomplishments, the firm’s attorneys are regularly honored by their peers: This year four of the firm’s attorneys were selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America © in the area of Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions - Plaintiffs: Gary Douglas, Michael London, Stephanie O’Connor, and Virginia Anello. The firm is also ranked Tier 1 in New York City for Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions - Plaintiffs by U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “Best Law Firms.” It is great to see that “the leaders of our firm are so highly respected in New York and throughout the country for skill and experience,” notes London. “And with our combination of successful case leadership and trial capabilities with unmatched results, we believe our firm is poised to further its successful track record in the years to come.”

BENEDICT MORELLI New York’s Trial Attorney

PHOTO BY STATIA GROSSMAN

W

HEN BENEDICT MORELLI received the call asking if he would represent comedian Tracy Morgan in a suit against Walmart, he knew he was in for a fight. Mr. Morelli had that same feeling when the parents of Zynae Green, a now 7-year-old girl who was electrocuted at an MGM resort in Maryland, turned to him seeking justice for their daughter. The same when tennis sensation Genie Bouchard tapped him for her suit against the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and for the hundreds of victims in the 2015 Amtrak derailment who depended on Mr. Morelli to help secure a $265 million settlement, one of the largest ever for a train derailment. But that’s exactly why victims come to Mr. Morelli. With decades of experience, billions of dollars in results, and a special talent for jury trials, Mr. Morelli is known as the attorney who can get it done, no matter the case or adversary.

“I built my career by taking powerful companies head on,” he shared. “You can’t let your adversaries’ size or resources intimidate you. I don’t operate that way.” The list of Fortune 1000 companies he has successfully litigated against include s Walmar t , MG M , B ank of America, and Pfizer, among others. But not all of his cases are high profile or involve household-name companies. Over his career, Mr. Morelli’s secured justice for construction workers injured on the job, residents who are victim to unsafe living conditions, individuals involved in motor-vehicle accidents, and much more.

“YOU CAN’T LET YOUR ADVERSARIES’ SIZE OR RESOURCES INTIMIDATE YOU.”

“While we’ve represented celebrities like Tracy and Genie, our firm will fight for anyone who’s been the victim of negligence or malfeasance,” said Mr. Morelli. “Holding companies and wrongdoers accountable is what we’re interested in.” And hold them accountable he has. Notable results include: • $95M verdict against Aaron’s Inc. in what was the largest single-plaintiff sexual harassment verdict ever • $62M verdict for a construction worker who suffered a brain injury after falling from a roof • $41M verdict in a wrongful death case involving a misdiagnosis of a woman’s ectopic pregnancy

“Our results tell our story,” said Mr. Morelli. “We do what it takes to deliver the best possible outcome because we know that victims and their families depend on that financial support to move on with their lives. We take that responsibility seriously.”

FIGHTING FOR THE UNDERDOG

A combination of hard work and excellence in the courtroom has garnered outsize results for the injured clients of Block O’Toole & Murphy By Sean Stonefield

IGNIFICANT RESULTS ARE A regular occurrence at the New York personal injury firm Block O’Toole & Murphy. Since 2012, the firm has annually obtained the largest number of reported personal injury results exceeding $1 million in New York state, as noted by the New York Law Journal. In total, it has recovered well over $1 billion for its clients, including more than 300 results exceeding $1 million and multiple recordbreaking verdicts and settlements. “I have always enjoyed the challenge of representing the underdog and seeing that justice is done,” says firm founder Jeffrey Block. “Our mission is to help people, and the results we have achieved over the years are proof that we have remained true to that mission.” In 2019, the firm has continued its remarkable streak of personal injury victories. Foremost, the firm obtained

a $110 million award for a 26-year-old cyclist whose spinal cord was shattered after construction workers dropped a 10foot rail tie on him during a New York City Transit Authority track replacement project in Brooklyn. The firm’s client, who was 23 years old at the time of the accident, is now permanently paralyzed from the waist down. “Like many of the matters we handle, this case involved basic, avoidable errors on the part of the defendant, which ultimately led to a life-altering tragedy,” says partner Daniel O’Toole, who handled the case with partner Scott Occhiogrosso. “Our hope is that this verdict will provide our client with a better quality of care as he fights to

“The results we have achieved over the years are proof that we have remained true to that mission.”

recover from this terrible accident.” This $110 million award is believed to be the largest non-medical malpractice injury verdict in the history of New York. As such, it ranks among the most notable results in the firm’s history, which already includes a $32.7 million verdict in a pedestrian accident case that was the largest non-medical malpractice injury verdict in Long Island history and a $20.1 million New York State Court of Claims verdict that was the second largest verdict ever for the court. “Our trial experience, energy, and dedication to our clients is our blueprint for success,” says partner Stephen Murphy. “We know how much our clients’ quality of life depends on the outcome of their case, and because of that, we bring a high level of passion to our practice— making our clients’ struggles our own personal battle.”

PATRICK A. MULLIN:

Cutting Edge Federal Criminal & Tax Defense Patrick A. Mullin is a veteran federal defense attorney whose repeated victories in high-stakes criminal and tax matters have vaulted him to the top of his profession. Over his 40 years of practice, Mullin has earned respect across the U.S. and internationally as a go-to lawyer for those under criminal or tax investigation, facing indictment, or pursuing an appeal. He is an alumnus of Harvard Law School and a graduate of NYU’s renowned tax law program. Mullin has served on the faculty of legendary Gerry Spence’s Trial Lawyers College and presented oral argument before the United States Supreme Court in a federal criminal case. Mullin has also attained the rank of black belt in both Okinawan Gōjū-ryū and Japanese Kyudōkan. Q: What recent cases has your firm resolved successfully? A: A client involved in a legal marijuana business in Colorado was made the target of a federal criminal tax investigation. Through zealous representation, the client was ultimately absolved of any criminal liability. A client’s upscale New York City restaurant was shut down by tax authorities due to sales tax issues. We were able to secure the reopening of the restaurant after negotiating a meaningful payment plan for outstanding tax liability, and the client’s business is now flourishing. We have also represented tax preparers, individuals and corporate entities facing potential criminal investigation by the IRS and have been able to secure favorable resolutions for numerous of these clients. Our current cases involve representation of residents of fourteen states throughout the United States as well as eight countries across the globe. We are a truly international criminal and tax practice.

Q: What is your firm’s philosophy and mission statement? A: Our practice is based upon the ancient Samurai Code of Bushido. There are four core principles that especially guide our firm: laser focus, superb training, killer instinct, and relentless pursuit of justice. These are the standards that we follow daily in representing our clients. We find that these internal firm practices, with the singular goal of meeting the highest standards in the legal profession, culminate in the best client results.

There are four core principles that especially guide our firm: laser focus, superb training, killer instinct, and relentless pursuit of justice. These are the standards that we follow daily in representing our clients. Q: What advice do you have for people encountering these problems for the first time? A: In many instances, time is of the essence in addressing such important issues as a criminal investigation or IRS tax audit. Every decision or action made in the early stages can have significant and even irreversible implications. Early skilled professional intervention is critical in resolving such matters.

RESULTS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Thomas Moore and Judith Livingston continue to secure some of the largest verdicts in New York state for their injured clients. By Sean Stonefield

A

S THE SENIOR PARTNERS AT KRAMER, DILLOF, LIVINGSTON & MOORE, Thomas Moore and Judith Livingston have established one of the nation’s most successful law firms for victims of medical malpractice, personal injury, and wrongful death. Moore and Livingston, who are married to one another, bring a dynamic partnership to their practice that has translated into an impressive track record. Between them they have secured more than 125 jury verdicts in excess of $1 million, with more than $1 billion in total recoveries for their clients over the firm’s history. “Through our practice, we’ve had the privilege of serving as a voice for those who can’t speak for themselves,” Moore says. “There is an incredible amount of work that goes into being a trial lawyer, but it’s worth it to see how these results change the course of our clients’ lives.” In 2018, for example, Moore won a $45.2 million verdict from a Manhattan

Supreme Court jury on behalf of a 53-year-old woman who suffered brain damage when struck by a shopping cart that was intentionally thrown off a fourth-floor walkway at the East River Plaza. Following a month-long trial, the jury needed only three and a half hours to decide in favor of Moore’s client, awarding her one of the largest personal-injury verdicts in New York state for 2018. “By thoroughly investigating the facts of the case, we were able to show the jury that the mall was also at fault for this catastrophic accident,” notes Moore,

“Between them they have secured more than 125 jury verdicts in excess of $1 million, with more than $1 billion in total recoveries for their clients.”

who a year prior, in 2017, secured a $39.5 million jury verdict for a former NYU student who fell from an unguarded fire escape. “We champion our clients’ causes, and that’s evident in the results we achieve for them.” Livingston, too, has obtained lifechanging results for her clients. In 2018, she won a $31 million wrongful-death verdict for the family of a 70-yearold woman who died as a result of an incorrect heart procedure. And later that year, she secured a $13-million verdict from a Manhattan Supreme Court jury on behalf of the family of a 43-year-old New Jersey woman who died as a result of a surgical error. “When people come to us, they have either suffered a life-altering injury or lost a loved one under tragic circumstances,” says Livingston. “Many are close to despair, and it is our firm’s mission to provide them with renewed hope and the resources they so desperately need.”

BodnarMilone LLP

PHOTO BY STATIA GROSSMAN

ODNARMILONE LLP OFFERS A unique depth of resources and experience in marital dissolution and post-divorce matters. Indeed, eight attorneys at the 11-attorney firm were recognized by Best Lawyers® in 2020, including several attorneys who are AV Preeminent rated by MartindaleHubbell. Many are also Fellows of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and past chairs of the Family Law Sections of the New York State Bar Association and Westchester County Bar Association and current members of their Executive Committees, as well as designated as Super Lawyers and included in Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Law and Who’s Who in the World. The issues encompassed within matrimonial and family practice reflect

the most fundamental of concerns, namely a person’s children, their home, their life savings, possibly a business interest or professional practice and their financial future. BodnarMilone’s practice is devoted to working closely with its clients to resolve these issues, preferably through negotiated settlement or collaborative divorce, if possible, however, when that is not possible, through vigorous and deft litigation. BodnarMilone is highly regarded by the Bench and Bar alike for its level of expertise and professionalism, attention to detail, integrity, and responsiveness. These qualities are brought to bear in the firm’s representation of each client. The firm serves not only as advocates for its clients, but also counselors at law for them. Clients are counseled as to the “bigger picture,” so they can better understand

the ramifications of different options or actions and thereby make better, more informed choices and avoid unintended consequences which might be born of emotion-based decision-making. “Our experience allows us to help our clients develop and achieve realistic goals, translating their concerns into concrete solutions,” notes Lydia Milone, who has been practicing matrimonial law for three decades. “By approaching each case with ingenuity and integrity, we’ve been able to make a real difference in people’s lives.” “BodnarMilone shepherds its clients through marital dissolution and postdivorce matters, working with them to achieve results tailored to their unique situations,” says Peter Bodnar, who brings more than 45 years of experience to his practice.

Finding oneself in the midst of a medical malpractice, sexual abuse, personal injury, or civil rights case can be overwhelming and disconcerting, to say the least. Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder welcomes its clients with arms wide open, offering them the closure they so desperately need in order to put a traumatic situation behind them. “We began as a family firm,” managing attorney Jim Horwitz says. “We work together that way, and we treat the people who come here, who seek our help, as family. That’s a very big part of who we are.” With this in mind, the Koskoff attorneys function collaboratively, especially when taking on cases that other firms may be hesitant about. These challenging cases are the ones on which Koskoff thrives – where the outcome is important for both the people involved and Connecticut overall. In addition to the work the firm does for its clients, they also make a point to educate and assist lawyers who are outside of the firm. The firm’s commitment to the legal

community is evident in the number of attorneys who serve as leaders in prominent organizations. Koskoff partner Kathleen Nastri is a past-president of the American Association for Justice, the world’s largest trial bar, and managing attorney Jim Horwitz is the past-president of the Greater Bridgeport Bar Association and a past-president of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association. Many of the attorneys at Koskoff have been recognized by Connecticut Magazine as Super Lawyers, and have also been listed in The Best Lawyers in America© . The firm has proved itself as one of the leading trial firms in Connecticut and nationally, particularly for its work in medical malpractice, personal injury, and civil rights cases. Clients are often referred to the firm by other lawyers who trust that Koskoff will work diligently toward the best outcome for each individual case. Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder continually goes above and beyond for its clients and the Connecticut legal field overall, demonstrating time after time where its priorities lie.

NEW YORK AREA

ilberstein, Awad & Miklos is one of New York’s best known plaintiffs’ firms, having successfully prosecuted thousands of serious personal injury and medical malpractice cases. The firm has recovered more than $1 billion for its clients, including many record-setting verdicts, and has also argued before appellate courts more than 100 times. Senior partner Joseph Miklos said he has seen first-hand how the firm’s awards have benefited clients and their families. “It’s very rewarding to be contacted by many clients, years after their resolution, to learn that the compensation we secured for their injuries enabled them to live fuller lives than they thought possible.” S enior p ar t ner Jos eph P. Awad, w ho was recently voted as Long Island Pulse magazine’s top personal injur y at torney, said the f irm’s 18 lawyers have handled nearly every type of injury or malpractice claim. “Our lawyers have hundreds of years of combined experience in and out of the courtroom, and that provides our present and future clients with a solid foundation for success on each new matter.” The 2020 edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “Best Law Firms” recognized Silberstein Awad & Miklos with a Tier 1 ranking for Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs in New York City and Long Island, which reflects the comprehensive expertise of its team. In addition to accomplished trial attorneys, the firm is staffed with an attorney-nurse, an attorney-pharmacist, an in-house board certified physician, and a registered nurse. Miklos said that this unique, collective background is what helps the firm stand out among others in New York. “ We know who to talk to, where to find the answers, and what steps are necessary for success,” Miklos said. “We have access to some of the finest medical minds to evaluate personal injury and medical malpractice cases, and also collaborate with exper ts in economics, engineering, and vocational rehabilitation.”

Indeed, for 2020, six of the firm’s lawyers are named in The Best Lawyers in America ©: RoseAnn Branda, co-director of the firm’s family and matrimonial law department; Samuel Ferrara, also co-director of the family and matrimonial law department; Patrick Formato, director of the health law practice and co-chair of the medical marijuana law group; Ellyn Kravitz, a certified elder law attorney by the National Elder Law Foundation; Sharon Stiller, director of the firm’s employment law practice and the Best Lawyers® 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” for Employment Law in Rochester, NY; and Carolyn Reinach Wolf, director of the firm’s mental health law practice—the only one of its kind in New York. “One of the successes of this firm is that a client can come to us for assistance in one area of the law, then return to us should a different legal issue arise,” notes Fensterman, “Whatever your needs are the firm can grow with you.” W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

TOP FIRMS GET TOP VERDICTS. PERIOD.

For over 16 years, Wigdor LLP has paved the road to justice on behalf of victims of corporate misconduct at the highest levels. The National Law Journal recently named Wigdor LLP a winner of its 2019 Elite Trial Lawyers Awards in four distinct categories — more than any other firm. It is safe to say that this recognition would not have been possible without the leadership of the Firm’s Founding Partner Douglas H. Wigdor, who is widely regarded as one of New York's most successful employment litigators. Not only is Mr. Wigdor one of few New York plaintiffs’ employment litigators to receive a ranking from Chambers and Partners, but he was also named to the Law360 2019 Titans of the Plaintiffs' Bar list, and was also referred to as "one of New York City's most aggressive employment lawyers" in a feature profile by The New York Times. When it comes to sexual harassment, discrimination and #MeToo, Wigdor  LLP has represented victims in some of the most closely watched and discussed cases in recent history. These include multiple victims of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual abuse; the hotel maid in the Dominique Strauss-Kahn sexual assault case; numerous victims of alleged sexual misconduct by their Uber drivers; over 20 victims of alleged discrimination and/or sexual harassment at Fox News; seven female TV journalists in their claims of gender, age and/or pregnancy discrimination against NY1; and many others. It is no wonder, then, that Wigdor LLP was the only plaintiffs’ employment law firm to be recognized in a recent study on the most fearsome litigation firms in the Country. “He just will not be intimidated,” said one of Wigdor LLP’s high-profile clients in a Bloomberg magazine profile of Mr. Wigdor. Wigdor LLP has led the charge in challenging the use of forced arbitration in employment disputes, a practice which denies employees meaningful access to justice via the court system. These efforts have gained the attention of lawmakers, activists and journalists nationwide. Notably, the Firm’s work in a gender discrimination and sexual harassment dispute against Ernst & Young (“EY”) recently prompted a bipartisan group of 67 New York State Legislators to sign a letter urging EY’s Global Chairman to voluntarily release Wigdor LLP’s client from forced arbitration so she could pursue her claims in open court before a jury of her peers. When they aren't trying cases, Wigdor LLP attorneys are often seen zealously advocating for their clients or being quoted as legal experts in leading local, national and international news media. Due to the Firm's well-respected stature within the legal community, the attorneys at Wigdor LLP possess a rare negotiating power that is unseen by most boutique plaintiffs' firms.
