In 2008, Jason Paris and Ian Chaikin merged their individual practices to create a firm that would serve as a highly effective partner for accident victims seeking justice. Since then, the firm, Paris & Chaikin, has quickly grown to where it is now one of New York’s premier personal injury law firms—one that is relied on by other lawyers, who often call upon Paris and Chaikin to litigate matters for them.
“We are a firm with powerful resources” says Chaikin, who is licensed in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Florida, and who is fluent in English, Spanish, and Hebrew. “From the moment our firm is retained on a case, we give it our undivided attention while working with the top experts, specialists, and investigators to prepare for victory at trial. No matter the case, we will never be outworked, outfought, or outspent.”
Paris and Chaikin have focused on personal injury law throughout theircareers, and they are known for being relentless in their pursuit of justice. Over the years, they have recovered millions of dollars for victims of construction and motor vehicle accidents, municipal and premises liability, and many other instances of negligence.
“We’ve achieved substantial recoveries for our clients because we fight for justice until justice is done and our clients are compensated for their injuries,” Paris says. “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 among New York’s leading personal injury lawyers. 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 they serve on the New York State Trial Lawyers Association’s Board of Directors.
Still, for Paris and Chaikin, 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 says. To which Paris adds, “We want to make our clients’ lives better in any way we can, so we’re there for them long- term helping them overcome whatever hurdles they’re facing in life.”
