Jacob Oresky and his firm have obtained settlements and verdicts that have earned them a place in the New York Law Journal’s annual “Top Settlements & Verdicts” section for each of the past seven years. Oresky & Associates have obtained over $250 Million in settlements and verdicts in accident cases for their clients.
Of this success, Oresky states, “Our firm’s number one priority is to provide outstanding representation to each client. This includes sparing no expense to investigate and champion our clients’ rights. We establish a strong relationship with each client from the very beginning to help them through the difficult time following an accident.”
From the moment Oresky is retained as counsel, he and his team of lawyers work to ensure clients receive maximum compensation for their injuries along with personal attention and responsive service. The firm employs a team approach that addresses all aspects of its clients’ cases from helping a client obtain lost wages, through investigating the claims and defenses of a case, hiring experts, and taking a case through trial to verdict. Describing his firm’s core approach, Oresky notes, “We get to know the people we’re representing and we build long- term relationships with them. In my experience, only by understanding a client’s situation along with their injuries and disability, can you achieve the sort of results that make a difference to them.”
Oresky discovered a passion for representing personal injury victims early on in his career, while working as a young lawyer at a general civil litigation firm. As a result, in 1992 he started his own firm focused solely on representing personal injury clients, which has since become one of New York’s go-to personal injury firms, particularly for victims of construction and automobile accidents. “When compared to other areas of law, personal injury always struck me as the most meaningful,” Oresky states. “There is nothing more rewarding than meeting with clients, learning about what they’ve been through, and then championing their rights and helping them get back on their feet. I like to help people.”
