Paris & Chaikin recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of founders Jason Paris and Ian Chaikin merging their individual practices in 2008. In that time the firm has emerged as one of New York’s leading personal injury law firms, consistently achieving multimillion-dollar results for injured clients. The firm is notably relied on by other lawyers, who often call upon Paris and Chaikin to litigate matters for them, making them stand out in New York’s prestigious legal community.

“We are a firm with powerful resources,” said Chaikin, who is licensed in New York, New Jersey, and Florida, and who is fluent in English, Spanish, and Hebrew. “From the moment our firm is hired, we give the case undivided attention while working with the top experts, specialists, and investigators to prepare for victory at trial. No matter the challenge, we will never be outworked, outfought, or outspent.”

Paris and Chaikin have focused on personal injury law throughout their careers, and are known for being relentless in their pursuit of justice. Combined, they have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for victims of construction and motor vehicle accidents, municipal and premises liability, and many other instances of negligence.

A recent example was a 2016 jury verdict of $2.6 million for a woman who was critically injured in a motor vehicle accident with a well-known transportation entity. The award was recognized by Leaders In The Law as one of the top verdicts in New York State for that year.

“We’ve achieved substantial recoveries for our clients because we fight until justice is done,” Paris said. “We’re fearless in the courtroom, and with our niche in litigating catastrophic liability cases, other lawyers will call upon us, often on the brink of trial, to assist in matters involving difficult legal issues and devastating injuries.”

Given their preeminent reputations, Paris and Chaikin are regularly honored by the media and legal associations. Both attorneys have been named in Super Lawyers—a list that recognizes the top five percent of lawyers in the state—annually since 2014. They have also been inducted into the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and serve on the New York State Trial Lawyers Association’s Board of Directors.

The last 10 years have set the tone for a bright future, said Chaikin, but the truest sign of their success has been their clients’ satisfaction with their services. “We take pride in calling our clients our friends, and we zealously represent them as such,” Chaikin said. To which Paris added, “We aim to improve our clients’ lives. Their trust is a privilege we take very seriously – one that constantly inspires us to fight and win.”
