Practice Areas

At the Stern Law Firm, we pride ourselves on handling all types of New York personal injury and negligence cases such as serious auto accidents, wrongful death, brain and spinal cord injuries, slip & falls, trip & falls, defective products, medical malpractice, and accidents caused by carelessness. We have over 35 years of personal injury experience and have amassed expertise in helping people recover damages from their losses by collecting the highest awards for our clients.

Our initial confidential conversation about your case is free of charge or obligation. We only charge a fee at the end of the case when we recover an award or settlement for you. Our fees are based on a percentage of the recovery as set by law and your only other responsibility is for the shared expenses disbursed (doctor reports, court fees, experts, etc) which in most cases are advanced by us during the case and deducted off the top of the recovery at the conclusion of the lawsuit.

Ask Us Anything. anytime.
